Keith Olbermann tonight a must see - O'Reilly exposed
If you don't already watch Countdown with Keith Olbermann, you absolutely have to tonight, or trackdown a clip of the Bill O'Reilly segment online. Simply put, it's one of the greatest journalistic beat-downs since Edward R. Murrow took on Joe McCarthy.

36. KO was on FIRE! Righteous!
Keith is generally somewhat light and funny, although still SHARP, with his BillO jabs. This time he was just plain righteously angry. I've never seen him so angry.

It was beautiful. A thing to behold. And savor.

Olbermann is fantastic. O'Reilly will absolutely go nuts when he sees this.

6. Yeah, my only question is, how is Fox gonna cover up this one?
They wiped the transcript of Bill's show of the offensive statements. We have proof.

There is video evidence of what Bill said...proof.

Keith has history on his side...proof.

How is Bill going to fight back on this? How is FOX going to fight back?

I fear it will be the only way they know how: swiftboat Keith.

That's what they do, you know, to people when truth is on their side.

14. ...and KO sure got the cold shoulder...
...from Joe Scarborough when Olbermann transitioned to his show. If looks could kill.

Oh, I forgot.... Scarborough is one of the Hardball Hotshots on Friday. (Yes, that's what they call themselves.) They don't like Keith. :rofl:

18. tivo
My tivo must be progressive, because after recording KO for quite a bit now, I have never heard one word spoken from the person
after him.

Whether it's Rita or Joe, the recording ends before they can say 1 word.

Thank you Tivo.

19. Very good, Olbermann - K&R!
Here's the link to the story about Edward R. Murrow and Joe McCarthy. It deserves to be read again and again.
And so does Olbermann ;-)

23. In my family, when Keith begins to inroduce
whoever is following him, invariably an asshole, one of us reaches for the remote. By the time, the Wingers face is going to appear, we're already elsewhere on the 'dial', as we used to call it in the prehistoric days.

24. Too bad, cause Joe Scarblow's face was priceless.
Looked like he swallowed one hell of a sour lemon.

He knew:

1) he had to follow one of the great moments in the history of TV, and

2) Keith was right and had just bitch-slapped his hero and mentor.

25. KO threw a big flat stone into some deep BILLSHIT!
And it will be the splash heard round the dial, I hope!

I wrote KO a thank you note!

27. I wonder why General Clark did not respond like Keith
How could he not have had a forceful response in both citations is amazing. It is inexcusable that he did not correct/reprimand the bloviator after the second incident.

28. I was thinking that myself...
he had the deer in the headlights look.

Could it BE that he didn't know? Even I knew that and I'm a moron (not moran).

29. I thought about that too. I'm sure Gen. Clark knew it was horse hockey.
I can't believe a 4 Star Genl didn't know a significant piece of military history like that. I knew it myself and I was just a lowly enlisted man.

32. And he would certainly know it the second time it was thrown up
It is inconcievable that his staff did not educate him after the first incident, unless you assume the improbable that they are all morans.

33. I seriously, seriously doubt he didn't know. Maybe he decided it was best
to let O'Liely look like an arse. I mean, think about it, Genl.Clark obviously is running for Pres again and he needs every avenue open to him media-wise. Does it make sense to beat up on O'Liely and have him shut you out? You know that Bill isn't going to admit anything at all and would just attack Clark forever. Maybe Clark figured it was best to let Bill speak and let the rest of us pummel him instead? Dunno....just a thought.

35. That would be the explanation for and DLC aligned Democrat
They seem to think that it is best to never stand up to Fascists. They forget the lessons of the Holocaust all to easily.

34. We should all write FAUX and let them know
how mad we are.

They respond to losing viewers quicker than anti-American slander by one of their own.

38. Is O'Reilly shameless or what? The part where he responds to the
email by saying, "I was talking about what happened *after* the massacre at Malmedy", in that smug voice. Such incredible bullshit.

The wormy- yet arrogant- deflection just makes it look worse.
