We on the right have long ago determined that the Keith Olbermann Show is about as entertaining as watching a special needs version of Barney. What is truly surprising is that the “sick puppies” on JournoList would agree.
The Daily Caller’s latest JournoList findings reveal that Keith Olbermann’s far left buddies find him to be “misogynistic”, “predictable” and “pompous”.
The Daily Caller: If you were one of the 400 members of the listserv Journolist, perhaps one of the most vicious insults you could hurl at a colleague is: You’re just like Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity.
If the reader holds neutral — or even positive — views about the Fox News hosts, the insult may not sting. But in the cloistered world of liberal listserv enclaves, Hannityism is a cardinal sin. After all, Fox is a “dangerous,” “deranged” “cesspool” that, possibly, the FCC should be investigating.
The feelings against MSNBC host Keith Olbermann, then, must run deep.
“He’s become O’Reilly on the left– completely predictable, unfunny, and arrogant,” said Georgetown University Professor Michael Kazin in May 2009. “To my mind, what they do is no different form Hannity and O’Reilly,” said the New America Foundation’s Michael Cohen, “At least Hannity and O’Reilly engage with the other side (if mainly just to yell at them). Olbermann is just an echo chamber.” [...]
The Nation’s Katha Pollitt began the group’s rant. “He and Michael Musto did this whole long riff about beauty contestant Carrie ‘opposite marriage’ Prejean’s breast implants, stupidity, breast implants, tacky clothes, earrings, breast implants. They went on and on about how she was ‘part plastic’ and pathetic. You’d think they were celibate vegans who spent their lives zen meditating. It was just a whole TV humiliation of her, and it made me feel sorry for her, which wasn’t easy,” Pollitt said. [MORE]
I will never forget the first time I saw Keith Olbermann’s show. A dear liberal friend of mine was visiting and she insisted that we watch Olbermann instead of Bill O’Reilly. I had heard of Olbermann but never watched him before. For the next hour I sat in front of the television with my mouth agape wondering how in God’s name could my very smart and witty liberal friend regularly tune into this buffoon?
It will be interesting to see how the egomaniac Olbermann handles the news that this lefty peers think so lowly of him. Perhaps he may just take a permanent vacation.
For your entertainment, enjoy this clip of Glenn Beck mocking the oh-so pompous Keith Olbermann. If you know any J-Listers, invite them to view, they will probably get a kick out of it too.
