Could it be Olbermann?
Me | October 14, 2009 | AnnGora

Posted on 10/14/2009 7:16:24 PM PDT by AnnGora

I'm beginning to smell a rat named Keith Olbermann. I think he might be the source from whence comes all the lies about Rush. Did anyone pick up on what Rush said yesterday about the source of all the smears came from someone named Hoverman or Hobermann (Rush never gives Olbermann a plug...that's why he didn't pronounce his name). The he said this Hoverman wrote a book titled the 100 Worst Persons in the World. Well, Keith Olbermann did "put together" a book called The Worst Persons in the World based on his lame schtick on Countdown. The plot thickens as I noticed tonight Olbermann did not mention Rush or the NFL. Not once. Nada. You would think he would be gleefully gloating. Yet, not one mention of Rush tonight.

I think Olbermann's the one.

I know Olbermann’s book only sold about 4 copies, but can anyone dig one out of the garbage to see what exactly Olbermann said about Rush?

Probably correct. Plus, Obermann is an inveterate jock-sniffer. He probably is ingratiating himself with the thugs in the NFL (like they would ever hang with the insipid likes of him).

The ones that are being repeated by MSNBC and CNN talking heads. One was that Rush thought slavery had its merits.

RUSH: The last sound bites there are from Mercury Morris, and he was on CNN's Newsroom yesterday afternoon, and Rick Sanchez could not believe what he was hearing from Mercury Morris. Now, every one of these people from Rick Sanchez to David Shuster to Tamron Hall to James Carville -- who really knows better. James Carville knows me. We have socialized together. James Carville is repeating this totally fabricated lie attributed to me about slavery. We have tracked its origins. Its origins are in 2005, a blogger who was throwing it all over the Internet and then got it into my Wikipedia entry in the Wiki quotes, and even there it says it's unsubstantiated, "disputed," but these people are still going in there and using it. These are professional journalists: Rick Sanchez, Tamron Hall, David Shuster -- who, by the way, NBC already suspended Shuster once for saying that the Clintons "pimped" out Chelsea Clinton.

There was a guy, a sportswriter on MSNBC yesterday morning. Zirin was his name, Dave Zirin from TheNation.com. And then we had Bryan Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. And a guy named Drew Sharp and numerous personalities on ESPN have repeated that quote and another quote, both of them totally fabricated. It is breathtaking at his. There is no way anybody could have made -- and they say the statement happened in 1998. They all say that. Well, the guy that posted it, his name is "Cobra," by the way. That's his moniker on the Internet. You can hide and be anonymous on the Internet and he's been posting it all over the place, and he claims that he got it from a book.

By the way, the publisher is Nation Books in New York and the quote, he said he got it from a book written by some guy named Huberman, Huberman's book, 101 Worst People in America or whatever. It was published in 2006. The problem is he was spreading it in 2005. We know who the source of this is. We know that the guy that wrote the book did not source the quote! Nobody can source it because it wasn't ever made. I never said it. And look at all of these people who are repeating it without checking, and these are the people who tell us that they are the professionals, that they are the ones we should trust to weed out what's garbage and what's not garbage in the "sewer," they say that is the Internet. They are the sewer! They are the sewer, and they are in the midst of it. They are waste and they are promulgating waste all over the place! (interruption)

Oh, I'm told Mr. Zirin's name is pronounced "Zy-rin." It doesn't matter. Zirin, he was utterly, utterly irresponsible on that program yesterday. These people repeat lies because it fits their already prejudiced agenda. They are the ones with prejudice and bigotry coursing through their vanes, through their hearts, and through their souls. They are consumed with jealousy and rage. They are all liberals -- and make no mistake: That's what this is about. It is about ideology. It isn't about race. It's about their being jealous and attempting to discredit me, and they've now sunk to the low of repeating fabricated quotes that they cannot source. So we have sent them all letters. But we're going to have to add Tamron Hall to the list. We're going to have to add James Carville to the list. We're going to have to add David Shuster to the list. We're going to have to add Al Sharpton to the list.

Who else are we going to have to add to the list? I guess that's it. Of all the other people, Drew Sharp of USA Today, this Zirin guy of The Nation. Bryan Burwell. We're going to say, "You've got a few hours here to produce the citation, produce the source. Source this quote! Tell us where you got it. You prove to me that it was said, or else we will demand a retraction and an apology." I doubt that they care enough. In their minds, "mission accomplished." They're laughing about it and having a grand old time with it. But it is an embarrassment to them. I'm sounding like a parrot here. They ought to be ashamed of themselves to call themselves professionals. They're nothing but hacks. I mean, everybody in the world knows you don't believe anything on Wikipedia because anybody can go in there and put anything on that they want to unless you succeed in getting your site locked, and I don't even care about that.

Wikipedia is as irresponsible as anything else. Anybody can post anything they want on there. But these are the professionals! They're supposed to check this stuff. The idea that somebody could reportedly say, "Hey, slavery was great! You know what? Why, it kept the streets safer at night," in 1998 and it is only now surfacing? I said that in 1998? I guarantee you the Clinton war room would have been all over it! In 1998? This quote sat dormant for 11 years and all of a sudden shows up with a vengeance in conjunction with a report that I am a minority participant, minority participant in a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams? You would think... You know, I'm not hard to reach. My office isn't hard to reach and the radio show is not hard to listen to.
Just find the radio and turn it on. Hit the seek button and you'll find me all over the dial. Whatever happened to journalists calling people and saying, "Did you actually say this? I'm doing a story on blah, blah, blah. Did you actually say this?" They didn't want to take the chance I didn't say it. They wanted the excuse to run the fabricated quote. They wanted the opportunity to do it. These people are scum. They are literal professional scum and they are responsible in many ways for the deteriorating standards and quality of journalism. They are leading the pack. They are found on both the news side and the sports side, and they are doing everything they can to promote disunity and discord throughout our culture and society while holding themselves up in their own minds as great unifiers and people who care only about social justice. When they're basically just incompetent, irresponsible, impersonators of journalism.

No, the quotes are from this book

No grounds whatsoever for the quotes. No proof, no source. But it was still published. Rush should go after the publishers as well as the NFL.

Seems to add up, but Rush should call him Doberman. But what good would a protest/boycott do? No one watches him to begin with, except on SNF and I stopped watching that myself.

Yeah, I turn the channel when Olbermann is on.

He was a egotistical sportscaster in LA before being a jerk on ESPN. What amazes me is that they trash Rush's, Beck's, and Hannity's credentials but give this pompous windbag a pass.

You catch what he called Michelle Malkin?:

“Mashed up” meaning her Asian/oriental facial features = Racist.

I say it was a co ordinated effort against Rush.

I certainly emailed the NFL and let them know what I thought. I won’t be a viewer, I won’t puchase NFL products, and I won’t purchase from their advertisers.

A lawsuit by Rush is the best thing that could happen to Olberpunk *and* MSNBC.Ratings will soar and NBC will *gladly* pay any any judgment that might be issued against him.

Rush is regularly hit by MSNBC, Olbermann, Maddow, Schulz and Mathews. This is no secret. Problem is they play short clips of Rush where he makes jokes that are politically incorrect. It doesnt hurt his ratings any. His business is booming. I remember the young hungry Rushbo of 1993 and he was very careful about racial jokes. He had a hugely growing audience then growing the empire. He feels comfortable and safe now, and he is.

I loved last year where he used Bo Snerdly as the official Obama criticizer. That was funny.

From the book’s back:

“Jack Huberman provides us with an entertaining and informative bestiary of the real crooks, liars and cheats who are screwing up America. These are not just the people making asses of themselves or getting more media attention than they deserve. Huberman restores the likes of Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, James A. Baker III, Gary Bauer Brent Bozell, Ann Coulter, Karen Hughes, Karl Rove, Leo Strauss and Ralph Reed to their rightful place in the national hall of shame, along with such oozing pustules of cultural putrefaction as the Olson Twins, Mel Gibson, William Bennett, Katie Couric, Matt Drudge, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Phil, Dr. Laura, Oprah Winfrey, Teletubbies, the Simpson sisters, and God. “

And God?! That’s hilarious. God is screwing up America.

Carville is an arrogant jacka$$. It looks like he is a vile liar and slanderer now too. Unfortunately, he lives in my neighborhood and I have to see his ugly, skinny a$$ (actually he has no a$$) running through town every once in awhile as he fancies himself a "runner". It makes me and my dog shudder.

It may have been on the Rush show, but recently I heard a clip of Mary Matalin where she was saying some very nice things about Rush. I believe the two are friends if I’m remembering correctly. Carville needs to be asked why his wife is good friends with a racist like Rush and why he himself socializes with such a racist.

Yep - you got it all figured out. Except for the guy actually named Huberman who wrote a book 101 People Who Are Screwing America that actually did contain the made up quote, I'd say Olbermann is the best candidate.

Gotta love vanity posts.
