Surprise! Even JournoListers hate Keith Olbermann

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.

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.

Olberman has also burned bridges everywhere he has worked in the past. Read about his departure from ESPN, ugly doesn't even begin to describe that situation.

I kinda feel sorry for Olby. He's so pathetic and he thinks he's so smart. I doubt he has many friends. Probably chalks it up to his brilliance.

With Olbermann, what's to like?

JMK said...

Olbermann is one of the most deranged of the "Unhinged Left," but he actually does Conservatives a favor by making liberalism seem perverse and dirty....oh IS.

VH said...

Olbermann is so asinine, smarmy and arrogant that his show essentially unwatchable.

I can watch a lot of MSN NBC shaking my head, but I turn off Olbermann.

I just found your blog for the first time. After reading through some of the entries my thoughts were 'What a wonderful resource', and...dare I say it out loud... 'a rare feeling of hope again in the future of our country.' Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Olbie "the swiftness of how fast we can ruin someone's life".

Hmm, I'm sure Sarah Palin can add some words on how Olbbie's friends on the left and including him have tried to destroy the lives of the Palin. Sit down Olbbie, you melodramatic drama queen and full time hypocrite.
