In a bit of a departure from my usual Friday night offerings, I can't help but bring you my breakdown of Keith Olbermann's "Worst Persons in the World" from tonight, as it is truly a spectacle to behold.
It’s been an amazing week in the news, dominated by the tragedy of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake in
I decided to channel-surf during the commercial break at about the: 45 minute mark of "The Factor" and see what my favorite leftist whacko Keith Olbermann had to say. I must say, I was not disappointed; Olbermann was in full-on hate mode on a Friday evening, as is displayed by the following video:
Most of all, it is painfully obvious that Olbermann thinks the entire world needs to devote every waking second to coverage of the earthquake. While it’s certainly an important subject, his attempt to deride FNC and its hosts for covering important American news and politics is simply petty and childish.
Before he even gets to one of his “Worst Persons” he is obviously showing signs of delusional paranoia, as he clearly attempts to deflect upon FNC his and Chris Matthews behavior from the 2008 Presidential election. Also, accusing FNC of “forcing” Palin to become president is comical, especially considering the fact that she has clearly stated she doesn’t even know if she’s considering a run for office of any kind.
I really didn’t need to see any more, but like that experience of driving by a really bad wreck, I just couldn’t look away.
For his choice of second runner-up, he went after Sean Hannity. Occasionally I am willing to give Olbermann credit for his takes on Hannity, as occasionally Sean is a little over the top and has been known to stretch the truth just a bit. Not this time. Hannity is exactly correct in the statement that everyone is watching the Senate race in
First runner-up this evening is Glenn Beck. Olbermann attempts to discredit Beck by saying that Beck can’t grasp the world around him, and then bashes Beck for ignoring
What’s worst about Olbermann’s attempt to shine light on the supposed evil of Beck, though, is that Olbermann doesn’t even present facts honestly, taking his quotes from Media Matters and then editing them further, taking them even more out of context. Beck is not so much criticizing Obama for reacting quickly to the tragedy in
Here is the Media Matters clip of Beck, which when heard complete as a discussion with co-host Pat Gray actually comprises a logical conversation that anyone with common sense would agree with:
And last, but not least… winner of tonight's contest is Bill O’Reilly.
In my opinion O’Reilly has had the best coverage of all regarding the issue in
Additionally, here is the segment Olbermann tries to use against O’Reilly – again, notice how completely out of context the discussion is presented during Olbermann’s segment, as compared to what really takes place.
But most important of all is the simple fact that Keith Olbermann once again proves he has no brain and his research staff is clearly Media Matters. I offer as proof this cached link to the Media Matters webpage.
Keith Olbermann: if he were not so pathetic, I'd say he deserves to be named "Worst Person In the World."
