KEITH OLBERMANN

Deposed MSNBC host Keith Olbermann announced the final details of his new television show on Current TV on Tuesday. The news/commentary show is scheduled to start on Monday June 20th and will be entitled “Countdown with Keith Olbermann.” That’s the identical title of his previous show. “Countdown” will air weeknights at 5:00 p.m. Pacific time, 8:00 Eastern.

MSNBC host Keith Olbermann has been “suspended indefinitely” by the network after it was discovered he had made campaign contributions to three different Democrat politicians. The network’s president says the suspension was warranted because donating to political campaigns without prior approval violates company policy.

Olbermann donated the personal maximum $2,400 to each of three candidates, all of them Democrats. Here’s Olbermann blasting Fox News for donating money to Republicans:

OLBERMANN CLAIMS BILL O’REILLY HATES JENNIFER ANISTON BECAUSE HIS OWN FATHER USED TO BEAT HIM

August 12, 2010

KEITH OLBERMANN

We already know that the people in the news departments at liberal MSNBC and conservative Fox News hate each others guts. This leads to constant sniping by the hosts over ratings and personal attacks.

Wednesday night got a little extra testy when MSNBC “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann went after the dead father of Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. Earlier in the week, O’Reilly claimed that actress Jennifer Aniston was “destroying America” by promoting single motherhood.

Olbermann went after O’Reilly for having “daddy issues.” He quoted a biography of O’Reilly by Marvin Kitman saying,

“Virtually every reference O’Reilly makes to his own father describes how the man hit, slapped, or punched him…O’Reilly has a history of physical abuse with his father.”

Nice touch! Accusing your chief rival’s now-dead father of child beating. Well done, sir!

SHOCKER: KEITH OLBERMANN DEFENDS RUSH LIMBAUGH’S ST. LOUIS RAMS OWNERSHIP BID

October 9, 2009

DON’T TELL ANYONE, BUT KEITH OLBERMANN ACTUALLY DEFENDED RUSH LIMBAUGH LAST NIGHT

Keith Olbermann is the most liberal host on television. Rush Limbaugh is the longtime conservative radio voice of the right. The two have sparred for years and openly insulted each other on numerous occassions. Yet, last night, Olbermann defended Limbaugh’s right to buy the St. Louis Rams.

Numerous columnists (many of them African-American) have written that Limbaugh should not be allowed to own an NFL team because of his previous racist comments. Even some NFL players are on record as saying they wouldn’t play for a Limbaugh-owned team. Olbermann, though, literally laughed at the idea of a “character test” for sports owners. He also pointed out that if the Rams lose this weekend they will have gone a full calendar year without a win. Olbermann then invited Limbaugh to “flush his money down a rat hole.”

KEITH OLBERMANN IS LITERALLY A “JACKASS”

KEITH OLBERMANN: JACKASS?

Nice job by Wonkette.com for pointing this out.

The world’s most incompetent paper strikes again. However, this time conservatives may actually agree with the LA Times. Or at least get a chuckle out of it.

The Times made a mistake in publishing its tv listings yesterday. On page A4 in the print edition of the Times Friday, they accidentally listed the wrong show on the “TV Listings” in its Calendar section. The Times listed the wrong program on its “Prime-Time TV Grid,” saying that “Jackass” was scheduled to air at 7 and 10 p.m. on MSNBC.

“Jackass” actually airs on MTV. The real show scheduled to air in those timeslots? “Countdown with Keith Olbermann.”

QUESTION: WHO DID KATY TUR SLEEP WITH TO GET HER JOB? ANSWER: KEITH OLBERMANN

KATY TUR SHOWS OFF HER JOURNALISTIC PROWESS

Katy Tur was recently hired as a reporter for The Weather Channel. It’s probably just a mere coincidence that NBC happens to own The Weather Channel and her live-in boyfriend is MSNBC anchor/host Keith Olbermann.

Olbermann has repeatedly denied that Tur got her new gig by sleeping with him. Even though that’s precisely how she got her last job.  Tur got a New York anchor gig with ZERO experience after Olbermann reportedly called around to find her a job. He says Tur’s hiring was based on “only talent.” Some talent! At 25, Tur is half Olbermann’s age. They started living together when she was 23.

KEITH OLBERMANN HOLDS UP HIS CORNELL DEGREE TO TAUNT ANN COULTER

The stupefyingly idiotic feud between political talking heads Keith Olbermann and Ann Coulter, over who went to the “real” Cornell University, keeps going. Olbermann actually named Coulter one of his “Worst Persons in the World” and brought in his degree which he held up on camera.

KEITH OLBERMANN

The right has Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity. Both recently signed long contract extensions with Fox News. Now, the left has their own entrenched cable television host.

Keith Olbermann has just agreed to a four year contract extension worth $30 million to stay at NBC. He will continue to host “Countdown” on MSNBC and participate in Sunday Night Football with NBC. The money will come in handy. Although he lives a notoriously frugal lifestyle, and doesn’t even own a car, Olbermann does date a 24-year-old party girl.
