Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, can somebody put these MSNBC Pundits out of their Journalistic Misery?

Keith Olbermann used a news clip of John McCain DEFENDING HILLARY CLINTON AGAINST MEDIA ATTACKS, to Ostracize John McCain! To top it off, KO actually somehow convinced a senior editor from Newsweek named Jonathan Alter to go along with the charade!
Keith Olbermann introduces his egomaniacal diatribe... "Senator McCain Caught Lying to the Media about having criticized the media......."

The four minute plus trashing of John McCain by Keith Olbermann and Jonathan Alter was in response to the following John McCain comment,"Senator Clinton has earned great respect for her tenacity & courage. The media often overlooked how compassionately she spoke to the concerns and dreams of millions of americans, and she deserves a lot more appreciation then she sometimes received." -end John McCain quote

After showing McCain stating the above, Keith Olbermann and Jonathan Alter conduct a four minute attack on McCain as the two insinuate that McCain has memory issues and that he can no longer get away with lying, because of video. Huh?

Olbermann and Alter spent four minutes nit picking a "memory" talking point over a comment McCain makes in which he eloquently defends Hillary Clinton. Masquerading personal agendas under the guise of "McCain is losing his memory" is irresponsible journalism. I feel badly that Jonathan Alter of Newsweek feels compelled to take part in "Keith's World" as I believe it brings down the authenticity of Newsweek magazine.

Olbermann now believes he can get on the air and talk about anything and relate it to himself and his self importance while pretending it is about something else. I've lost a great deal of respect for whomever is in charge of keeping Keith Olberman halfway sane.

Olbermann's act has gotten old, tired, and in need of an enema. Matthews and Olberman think they are above reproach and are so ethically out of control that I cannot understand how people around them can live with themselves for letting these two guys loose on the airwaves.


When I watch Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, I feel like I am watching Invasion of the Journalism Integrity Snatchers. Just today, Chris Matthews mentioned that George Bush was handed a projected 3 trillion dollar surplus which he has turned into a 5 trillion dollar deficit during his administration, without mentioning it was Bill Clinton's presidency that handed the 3 Trillion dollar surplus to George Bush!

For Chris Matthews to actually use Pro Clinton information that he purposely IGNORED during the democratic nomination race, just shows whatever integrity Matthews may have once possessed has surely declined to the point of non-existence.

Can somebody at NBC get a backbone and get these doofusses off of the air?

All I know is that Hillary ran a stellar campaign. She did herself proud. I would like nothing better than for her to be president. I was so angry when things fell apart, but she gave an awesome speech Saturday. She has asked us to work with her to put a democrat in the White House. She didn’t issue a command, she just asked her faithful followers to help. I’d rather vote for Hillary, but I’ll follow her lead, and support Obama.

You sound like an Obamabot. Hillary was cheated out of the nomination and I won't stand by and let cheaters decide who the democratic nominee is going to be.

Barack Obama actually netted more delegates from ONE caucus in Minnesota than Hillary got for WINNING in Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana and Nevada.

Obama and his strategists and his - that is Oprah's, etc. - money, worked wonders.

Hill will not make a decision tonight - I concede superdelegates supersuck it - Roll on, Hill

[CNN has tonight projected that Obama has won the Democratic nomination.]

This message sent by me now just now to Hillary via her election campaign website.

Hillary has won the popular vote, has been winning most of the states recently AND handily, and has won nearly ALL the big & traditionally Democrat states.

The media has been against her all along.

Superdelegates are superpussies (and caucuses are a cock-up).

Hillary is "simply the best" candidate to win the general election.

Keep on running up that hill, Hill.

"Denver! Denver!"

From my 6.7.08 Blog entitled...
Hillary endorses Obama [Mike’s reply: We’ll get there, Hill. We’ll get there.]

This message sent by me just now to Hillary's election campaign website.

Thanks for giving it your all, for the country, the world, & the progress of women, Hill.

[The Godfather] Michael: What's the matter? What's bothering you? I'll handle it. I told you I can handle it, I'll handle it.

Don Corleone: I knew Santino was going to have to go through all this and Fredo... well, Fredo was... But I never wanted this for you. I live my life, I don't apologize to take care of my family. And I refused to be a fool dancing on the strings held by all of those big shots. That's my life I don't apologize for that. But I always thought that when it was your time that you would be the one to hold the strings. Senator Corleone. Governor Corleone. Something.

Michael: I'm not a pezzonovante.

Don Corleone: Well, there wasn't enough time, Michael. There just wasn't enough time.

Michael: We'll get there, Pop. We'll get there.

Don Corleone: [kisses Michael] Listen, whoever comes to you with this Barzini meeting he's the traitor. Don't forget that.

as a hillary supporter the one big reason i will not vote for obama is the disgusting way msnbc and its co-horts treated her from chris matthews, keith obama-man oh sorry olbermann, andrea mitchell, lee cowan, alter, that mika whatever her last name is, etc all in the tank for obama and the worse part is they never even tried to hide it. so i'll either stay home or vote mccain and when mccain wins msnbc has no one to blame but itself. i have to admit it will be fun to see them cry when obama is defeated in NOV. they at this time are trying to setup a theme of "if obama loses its hillary's fault"
matthews pisses me off with this hillary never apologized for the iraq war vote yet has matthews ever apologized for his voting for bush in 2000?

A.M. said...

Matthews voted for Bush in 2000? That is just priceless. The war thing is a talking point that is bandied about among the elitists involved this year's democratic coup.

I don't think Hillary Clinton could have pulled off a no vote on the Iraq war, maybe she could have abstained, but as a wife of a president who was involved in war himself, it would have looked really narcissistic to deny Bush his war.

The Clinton's get caught in damned if they do, damned if they don't moments all the time, but nobody ever points that out.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, because looking narcissistic is far worse than voting for a war.

Personally, I'm glad Clinton lost, so now we can have McCain in office like the other half of the Clintonians want.

Al Gore was one of the key democratic voters for the FIRST Iraq invasion. Explain the difference to me.
