Worst Person Of The Decade; Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann, one of the morons over at MSNBC, has a segment where he names the worst person of the week. The winner is usually some conservative who did something Keith did not agree with. He throws a tantrum and spews all kinds of hatred, the Kind Nancy Pelosi has heard and that leads to violence, and then he names the worst person.

Olbermann and his network have been critics of the media getting involved in politics (siding with a party rather than just reporting):

Olbermann, as well as MSNBC executives, was a vocal critic of the $1 million donation by Fox News’ parent News Corp. to the Republican Governor’s Association earlier this year, saying at the time, “We now have another million reasons Fox News is the Republican news channel.”

In a subsequent show, Olbermann also pressed House Majority Whip James Clyburn if there was a “legislative response” to a networks that “starts to shill for partisan causes.” CNN

The parent company of FOX donates and this is reason to show them as the Republican channel and he pressed a Congress critter for a legislative response for networks that shill.

MSNBC is the media wing of the Democrat party. They are in the tank for anything Democrat and routinely bash Republicans. Olbermann should be careful what he asks for because he might be the one to get a legislative response. As an aside, isn’t it interesting that Olbermann would want Congress to get involved in suppressing First Amendment rights? Typical lib.

In any event, Olbermann seems to have a bit of a shill problem himself. CNN (in the above linked article) is reporting that Olbermann has been suspended indefinitely for violating MSNBC’s ethics policies.

Who knew MSNBC would have an ethics policy? You have to be ethical for one of those.

As for Olbermann, he donated money to three different candidates (all Democrats). Evidently he was supposed to get permission before he did that (which is probably MSNBC’s way of ensuring money only goes to Democrats) and he didn’t so he was suspended. I am not surprised that Olbermann would rail against FOX making a donation and then turn around and make one himself. He is a hypocrite.

So it looks like one of the nicest things to come from this election is that Olbermann will not be on TV. Not that very many people watch him or anything. More people will see him during his suspension than see him on TV.

Unless, of course, he spends his time curled up on his bed in the fetal position as he is wont to do when he is chastened by his boss.

So Keith, for being a hypocrite, for being a shill for Democrats, for violating your company’s policies and for being a regular puke, you are hereby named the worst person of the decade.

    I liked Keith Olbermann for a while but the love wears off fast when it comes to such a pompous, sexist, windbag like him. I hate him for the same reason I hate Bill Maher (though I can stand Maher from time to time).

    I like what they’re doing at MSNBC as a network with strong liberal hosts but I laughed pretty hard when I saw the news of this recent development and I’m not sad in the least. I’ll take smaller, concise arguments against conservative policies and hypocrisies like Rachel Maddow does.

    Do I think it’s hypocritical what Olbermann did? A little perhaps. But that’s like calling someone who is anti-genocide a hypocrite when you find out he killed his wife and put her in the freezer. Olbermann donated a few thousand dollars each to three candidates. Fox’s parent corporation donated one million dollars to the RGA.

    When you suggest MSNBC is the media wing of the Democratic party you’re simply projecting. MSNBC wishes they had such a status. Fox is the media wing of the Republican Party and we all know it. Gone are the days when Fox pretended to mask their bias behind a phrase like Fair and Balanced.

    While we’re on the subject of right wing bias did you notice how poorly Rasmussen performed this season? Any respect they had as a polling firm is now shot thanks to their rampant Republican bias seen all throughout their polls this time around.

  2. Big Dog says:

    For a guy who says that he likes MSNBC’s strong liberal hosts to say FOX is the Republican wing is interesting.

    You see, FOX is Fair and Balanced when it reports THE NEWS. Listen to THE NEWS and it is pretty fair and pretty balanced.

    The OPINION SHOWS are something different. Most of them are slanted right but they say that and they ALL have on guests who are from the other side and treat them rather well in stark contrast to the way the MSNBC hosts treat Republicans.

    I did not equate the FOX donation to the Olbermann donation. Olbermann is the hypocrite when he slams FOX for a perfectly legal donation but then he makes three donations that are in violation of his company’s ethics policy.

    FOX did nothing wrong, Olbermann did and Olbermann slammed FOX while defending his own breaking the company’s rules.

    How can you say I am projecting? MSNBC is but one player in the media wing of the Democrat party. All of the cable networks and all the broadcast networks are in the tank for Democrats. The media bias is palpable.

    FOX is only in existence because of the media bias. It is a counter to NBCCBSABCCNNTNTMSBNC etc…

    As for Madcow, she is usually wrong, way out there and an Olbermann clone though I think she probably finds it easier to get chicks than Olbermann does and she has a bigger pair…

  3. Adam says:

    It’s not the bias that makes a network a media wing. Fox News actually has many if not all of the major GOP candidates for President in 2012 on their payroll for example. They have a huge audience and they put major GOP figures on the air every single night not as guests but as paid contributors.

    • Big Dog says:

      And the other networks shill for Democrats. They fawned all over Obama, refused to vet him, rationalized everything and worked for him to get elected.

      And FOX has many of the EXPECTED candidates. None have declared they will run.

      They need jobs too. Unlike Dems who can go to one of Soros’ many operations, Republicans need work so they sign on as contributors at FOX (except Huckabee who has his own show).

      FOX hired Juan WIlliams and has Colmes on staff. They hire from both sides and have many Democrat contributors.

      Perhaps the reason they have so many expected Republican contenders is because they have insight others do not.

      I mean you act like having a job is a bad thing.

      • Adam says:

        “Unlike Dems who can go to one of Soros’ many operations…”

        Which operations are those? He has one around every corner? Your side likes to demonize Soros as if he isn’t doing something also seen from your side. Just take Koch Industries for instance that funnels millions every year into conservative and libertarian causes as well as think tanks. Is that any different?

        • Big Dog says:

          Is Koch doing anything to deliberately destabilize the dollar and crash the economy? Soros is. Soros is behind many of the Socialist groups that want to take over.

          When we see the Koch’s working to crash the economy then we can talk.

        • Adam says:

          Soros is trying to crash our economy? I’d love to see your sources for that.

  4. Big Dog says:

    I guess you don’t listen to the guy or know his history of crashing currencies. He wants a decline of the dollar and he wants a new world order. Not hard to see what he wants.

    • Adam says:

      Perhaps you can link to good resources that will educate me on the evils of the man. I hear a lot of talk from people demonizing the man but never much in the way of things I can read.

      • Blake says:

        Don’t read much, Adam? Or do you deliberately stay away from sources that might shed some light on Soros?
        It is not haard to find many things about him- just use google.

        • Adam says:

          I don’t read in-depth about Soros, no. I’m certainly not afraid to reading about Soros though if somebody would point me in the right direction.

          As far as Google goes, I’m looking for real sources not the maniacal ramblings of Nth tier bloggers. That’s all I can find.

        • Mike Radigan says:

          Adam, go to You Tube and listen to Soros’ in his own words. Here’s a couple calling for a New World Order:


        • Adam says:

          Why do I always feel like when these folks mention a New World Order that it’s the phrase itself that scares people and not the actual idea behind it?

  5. Mike Radigan says:

    NWO; one currency, one government.

    • Adam says:

      One currency does not necessarily lead to one government, right? I’ve never understood how that link is made.

      • Mike Radigan says:

        With one currency, who will take on the role of the FED and monetary policy? Who will resolve financial problems such as Greece?

        • Big Dog says:

          If we went to a common currency then they would have to devalue us and raise others so we would all be the same. That is what they did with the Euro and that has turned out to be a disaster. Different money is part of what makes countries different and it is that way for a reason.

          Watch Beck this week Adam, particularly tomorrow, you won’t die from it. Maybe you can see something about Soros you did not know complete with sources. What a novel idea.

        • Adam says:

          I don’t get cable TV. If you find an online version let me know and I’ll gladly watch.

      • Adam says:

        Are those like Soros calling for a global currency in the sense that we’d be doing away with all other currencies? I couldn’t decide if he meant the global currency used through the IMF SDR would have specific use or if he meant in all situations.

        • Blake says:

          Soros is the one person responsible for the collapse of the British pound, and now he wants to do the same here.
          Beck has an online show, and you can learn ALL you want about Soros- he even provides links, so you can check all the facts yourself.
          Beck does not want you,, me or anyone else to blindly take his word for what he says- he gladly provides all you need to make up your own mind.
          All you have to do is go to Glennbeck.com, and look for yourself.
          As for global currencies, there would have to be a “governing body” to “oversee” this single currency- and Uganda’s money would be worth what ours is? I do not think so- we would have to devalue our currency so much that bread would cost us about $25 a loaf.
          That is NOT an appetising thought.
