Skip to comments.Olbermann Lies About Free Republic on MSNBC
Posted on 06/12/2009 1:54:41 PM PDT by kristinn
Keith Olbermann, host of Countdown on MSNBC, lied about Free Republic last night in a segment on white supremacist James Von Brunn, the accused murderer of a Stephen Johns, a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
Olbermann falsely said that Von Brunn was a poster at Free Republic and that Free Republic is a Republican website.
A request for a correction has been made to Countdown via phone and e-mail.

Olbermann: Von Brunn himself posted on the Republican Web site, Free Republic, spouting the right-wing claim that Obamas birth certificate was forged, defending President Bush against Dan Rather, and claiming the media had tried to destroy Sarah Palin.
Paging Ben Afleck, Paging Ben Afleck....
Fortunately digital tvs have become commoditized and are very reasonably priced.
He’s working to create a lasting legacy as a bowel movement. We’ve always known it, so why keep giving him publicity?
I’m an Indie who leans Green.
I’m not a Republican and Olberman is a liar.
A well turned letter from Jim’s attorney to cease and desist would seem in order.
When is FR filing a lawsuit?
We know that Keith Ogre-man has no integrity.
Yes, not only was the killer a pagan socialist, but he decried Chrisitanity as a Jewish plot to destroy Rome.
The guy was also a “911 Truther” and despise Bush, Fox News, Bill O’Reily.
His next target was the Olberman-loathed Weekly Standard.
Suing could cause problems because the site may be forced to prove he wasn’t a member to prove our case, and in such, provide all registration information to show he isn’t on the list..
Not a FReeper.
One article he wrote (that was on another site) was posted here. If the media is going to report that that makes him a FReeper, then by virtue of that, Olbermann is also a FReeper.
This is a *conservative* website, not a Republican one.
Is there any lie a liberal won't tell or any truth they won't hide?
“...To most libs, ‘conservative’ and ‘Republican’ are synonymous.”
That’s correct, and same with all too many Republicans. That is part of the Conservative/Republican problem that we can’t get the traction we need.
If we can get people to understand Conservatism, then they’ll understand what a RINO is, and where they are trying to take the Party.
Shaking my head & mad again.... IMHO that Keith Olbermann is as he loves to say , the worst person in the world.
Olbermann still has a show? The man is so utterly intolerable, overbearing and ego driven that I find him unwatchable. Poor MSNBC.
Lol...I can see more lefties and libs clamoring to FR to “scout” out White Aryan Racists....biting their fingernails and downing green tofu tea by the gallon...just wanting to catch another terrorist for Charlie Obuma...
KO is trying desperately to get mention on other newscasts by trying to gin up a controversy, trying to weasel his way into the Tiller killer and Letterman debates.
Olbermann is an also-ran, worthless and meaningless.
Fighting the media double-standards is important.
Ignoring KO is, too.
You can tell when Olbermann is lying. His lips are moving.
Olbermann is channeling OReilly, his daddy.
Seriously. Sue Olbermann. This is defamation. Sue, baby, sue!
