    Default Keith Olberman

    OK, so I'd never even heard of this guy until a day or two ago. Never seen him on British TV, or indeed any of the other European countries I have lived in.

    Just spent a little time this afternoon watching sections from "Crossfire" on google etc and I am really impressed.

    For once, somebody who seems not to have too much of a party bias. He seems to go after the injustices wherever he sees them, regardless of the perpetrators.

    His comment on Hillary Clinton's assassination of Kennedy comment was full on and fiery. Plus it was very bloody intelligent and articulate. Loved it.

    I'd be really interested to hear what others on these boards (seeing as most of you are "mercuns") think of him and to what regard he is held in your country.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    I like him. He doesn't pull any punches for any one or any party. He really hammered the Bush admin post Hurricane Katrina and was one of the few who did so so soon after the disaster.

    In general, I would say that he is held in fairly high regard, at least with the people I know.

    Default Good night, and good luck.

    The Edward R. Murrow of our time. Usually dead-on in his editorials.
    Truly one of the few things I miss about the States. So much so that I
    can't presently recall what said opinion pieces are called...
    Sure there's a website.

    That said, I do get Fox "News" over here. While most of it is still the joke/
    fluff/propaganda I always recognized it as, I havta say, I can't see what all
    the fuss about O'Reilly is anymore. Yes, I know he is/was a blowhard
    crackpot. But either he has mellowed or have I, or both. I watch him
    now and he seems such the pussycat - and downright level-headed
    compared with his histrionic brethren like Hannity and Hume.

    "seems not to have too much of a party bias"? Really? That's comical! His "worst person in the world" is a conservative 19 out of 20 times. The guy is a jackass! Wow, he went after Hillary! Big Fn deal. He is so far up Obama's ass it's ridiculous! If Obama loses, look for Oberman to have an stroke.

    Olberman is a joke. He complains about O'Reilly's bias, but does the same thing for the other side. Real smart, Keith.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Default worst douchebag in the world

    olberman is the biggest left-wing douche bag there is.. he's nothing but a political pundant and while bill o'reilly rarely speaks of him he's constantly taking shots at o'reilly on just about every show... i guess i would take shots at o'reilly also if he was killing me in the ratings game and this is surely the reason for it.. do you think he would pay so much attention to bill if his show was insignificant... hell no.. there's nothing impartial about olbermans show.. fox news is not half as right-wing leaning as msnbc is left leaning and all you hear about is how fox is soooo bad... i guess this has nothing to do w/ the fact that 95% of the video media represents the left wing media BIAS out of the northeastern part of the country.. olberman is a JOKE... BIGTIME!!!!!

    Olbermann - correctly spelled.

    He's great.

    Right wing turds hate him, which makes him even greater. Nothing is more interesting than controversy, and he's got a knack for stirring it up.

    Sure, he sucks Obama's tits on a nightly basis. So what . . . at least he doesn't purport to be fair and balanced.

    He's close to jumping the shark though.

    Without getting too political, or biased, I don't inherently have a problem with guys like Keith or Bill. One thing I did see that Olbermann did that I did not like was in an editorial about Bush demanding that he resign after the Libby pardon. His attitude, and his disrespect were appalling, as he continually called President Bush "Miiiiiiissster BUSH" with snide sarcasm. You may not like Bush, and you may share an opinion with Olbermann, but as a "journalist", you must still respect the office of the President, IMO. It really made me angry (and I am no Bush apologist by any means) to see him do this.

    Now, to get political, he invoked the supposed Bush "lie" about WMD's (you know, the WMD's where Bill Clinton said in 2003 that in Iraq, it was "incontestable that on the day I left office, there were unaccounted for stocks of biological and chemical weapons.") as part of this, and when someone does that, they lose me. It means that they don't care about facts, and since it's supposed common knowledge that Bush lied (and even if he did, it wasn't under oath, that's for sure), it's okay to just use that as part of an editorial from a "journalist". Even if I had agreed with Olbermann's assessment of the Libby pardon, it would bother me that he would report the big Bush "lie" as fact. Also, his demeanor was so derogatory towards Bush, I found it laughable the subject matter, considering the left's outrage over this, and lack of outrage over Clinton's lie under oath, and his list of pardons.....

    I'm not left or right, in fact I have been a "decline to state" Independent since the age of 18, I just wish we could have someone give truly unbiased editorials towards both the left and right equally.

    I like Keith. I used to think he was a liberal lapdog (the anti-O'Reilly) if you will, but since he goes after ANYONE who is just plain stupid in the public eye, I tend to perceive him as truly "fair and balanced".

    Olbermann rocks.
