  • Olbermann: Trump’s Wait-and-See Approach on Election Results ‘the Moral Equivalent of Treason’

    In his latest video commentary of GQ magazine, Keith Olbermann weighed on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s refusal to say he would absolutely accept the outcome of November’s general election. Trump told moderator Chris Wallace at the final presidential debate he would have to wait and see if he would accept those results, to which Olbermann said was “the moral equivalent of treason.” “This is the moral equivalent of treason,” Olbermann declared.
  • The Standard of Excellence ("The Media Died" when MSNBC Fired Keith Olbermann)

    It was, perhaps, the day the media died. Next week marks the fifth anniversary of the bitter night-January 21, 2011-when progressive Americans, and indeed Americans of all political persuasions who value honor, truth, respect, intelligence and decency, were shocked to learn that MSNBC had decided to end Countdown with Keith Olbermann, perhaps the single best news program ever to air on cable television in the United States. The abrupt cancellation of Countdown was a victory for the dishonest political forces Olbermann had forcefully condemned during his nearly eight-year run-and a demoralizing defeat for democracy. Things just haven't been the same...

    The Cutline ^ | January 4, 2012 | Dylan Stableford
    Analyses of Tuesday's Iowa caucuses are the top of most news sites right now--including Current TV's homepage, which features images of Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich above a video featuring former U.S. vice president and Current co-founder Al Gore breaking down the results. One image conspicuously absent from the page: Keith Olbermann. Olbermann, the host of Current's "Countdown With Keith Olbermann" and listed on the masthead as the network's chief news officer, was supposed to be on air Tuesday night, assuring a concerned Twitter follower earlier in the day that he was "headed into the office now in...

    This is indeed priceless. This is a partial transcript of Olbermann's Special Comment regarding the status of the Republican party just after Democrats passed Obamacare: A willful denial, incidentally, that includes the leader of the minority party in Congress ignoring the fact that his is the minority party, and that he represents the minority, and that despite having broken all the rules of decorum in place in this nation since the end of the Civil War that despite having played every trick — mean and low, despite having the limitless financial backing of one of the biggest cartels in the...

    Considering comission Roger Godell emphatically stating today that "divisive comments have no place in the NFL" and Colts owner Jim Irsay stating he'd couldn't consider voting for Rush Limbaugh as an owner because, "When there are comments that have been made that are inappropriate, incendiary and insensitive … our words do damage, and it’s something that we don’t need," it is time that we, as conservatives, football fans and season ticket holders of NFL teams, demand that olberman and his divisive, incendiary, inapprorpiate comments be removed from hosting Sunday Night Football!!!

    Just when you thought Keith Olbermann couldn't get any more vile or vulgar . . . Opening this evening's Countdown, Olbermann said that Rush Limbaugh's observation that Glenn Beck was the result of his success "is like congratulating yourself for spreading syphyllis." Olbermann made his crude comment in teasing a segment on Rush's interview with NBC's Jamie Gangel. View video.

    Keith Olbermann is not one to pass up an opportunity to attack anything that even hints at being right of center. The repugnant MSNBC host devoted some three-quarters of his Sept. 16 show to claim criticism of President Barack Obama had to have elements of racism, no matter how you sliced it. And therefore, those critics were all despicable human beings, end of story. However, he did manage to find time to revert to old tried and true method of appeasing his angry left-wing desires - a little bashing of former Republican vice-presidential nominee and Gov. Sarah Palin, with an...

    If you can’t beat ‘em, quarantine ‘em . . . Unable to compete with Bill O’Reilly, who consistently thrashes him in the ratings, Keith Olbermann has come up with a better idea: accuse his nemesis of “incitement to murder” and propose the “quarantine” of Fox News. Olbermann used O’Reilly’s comments about George Tiller as his pretext to attempt to drive off television the man who drives him insane. View video here.

    It is obvious that Keith Olbermann and Michael Musto were joking, but the mud-slinging is so base and crude one wonders where MSNBC will draw the line. Michael Musto of the Village Voice rips into Carrie Prejean like a rabid pitbull.

    NEW YORK - In an angry commentary on April 25, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann accused Rudolph Giuliani of using the language of Osama bin Laden with "the same chilling nonchalance of the madman" to argue that Republicans would keep Americans safer than Democrats from terror. Eight days later, Olbermann hosted MSNBC’s coverage of the first debate among Republican candidates for president. ...snip... Olbermann knows to leave his opinions at home when he anchors events, said Phil Griffin, NBC News senior vice president. "Keith’s an adult," Griffin said.
