KO made 10 million dollars this year alone. I wish I was as self-destructive as him.

hurdboy: And exactly the same reason Jon Stewart was full of shiat when he told Tucker Carlson that Crossfire was hurting America.


Jon Stewart wasn't saying specifically that Crossfire was hurting America.

He was saying that the whole "my team vs. your team" left/right dichotomy of political talk/debate is hurting America, of which Crossfire was a delirious example thereof. And he was right (hell, other posters have pointed out this exact same poisonous fallacy in this very thread).

If you had bothered to actually pay attention to his concerns rather than dismiss him as "booga booga he's a liberal", you might have realized this before criticizing him in a manner that proves him right.

Dumbass.

Showing Keith how it's done.

"Keith Underwear" is the biggest jerk on television.

When some wackball out in Arizona went nuts and shot a bunch of people, he jumped up on TV and blistered the hide off Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, talk radio in general---pretty much anyone and everyone he disagreed with, despite the fact that the shooter never even listened to talk radio, and as far as I can tell, Sarah Palin has never mentioned the name of Gabrielle Giffords; I don't believe the two have ever met.

He is a filthy stinking liar and a shameless coward to attack an innocent woman like that, and he has no morals or scruples when he uses the misery of people who have lost loved ones to advance his own political agenda.

He is a thoroughly disgusting piece of dog meat, except that, if anyone tried to feed something like that to my dog, I would prosecute him for cruelty to animals.

He wears waterproof undies on stage and pisses in his pants, BTW; hence the nickname.

Yup, that's the Post alright. Reading material for NYers too stoopid to find the Times.
 
2012-04-21 06:06:34 PM  
Shiat, if I made 10-million for even one year I think I would have enough to free time to hang in the park or whatever. In fact I probably wouldn't ever have to work again because I would have been putting that money to work making more money right away.

Bessame: cman: Olbermann was the flavor of the week when Bush, a Republican president, was in office.

Now, the flavor of the week is Glen Beck because Obama is president.

Why is this? Simple. When your side is in power, you dont have much to biatch about, and because you arent biatching as best as you can, people get bored very easily

Where have YOU been. Glenn is no longer relevant.


Also, how does he explain Jon Stewart?

I agree with his political positions 100%, but he seems to have emotional issues that are hindering his career.

Unemployment checks.

valar_morghulis: cig-mkr: The guy has a net worth of $35 million, how much do you need? Hang it up, kick back and fade into the sunset.

Or better yet, fund your own goddam organization so you can run it how YOU want, as opposed to constantly butting heads with other leaders.


Why?, At his age he could blow a mill or two every year and never run out of $$$$$
Wouldn't have to deal with any BS for the rest of his life.

Fish_Fight!: in this obama eat dog world, sometimes you just have to take a rest


i think this is what people don't get about the 1%.

sure 0berman is filthy rich, and he can afford to eat all the dog he wants, but he doesn't work for the money - he does it for what he thinks is power and influence.

so it isn't feeling sorry for him financially, it is because what he now values is gone.

Sorry, you can't have them. You made the decision to read TFA, you have to suffer the consequences. And you'll take those consequences with you to the grave, which is approaching you at breakneck speed.

And it's now two minutes closer.

Sleep well.

Dude's got millions in the bank, I don't think he's too worried.

Are you sure he's got millions in the bank?

Rich people have a tendency to live above their means since they always think the big money is going to continue to roll in. Lots of rich folk are a couple checks away from being broke like most people.

I mean if you make 1 million a year and spend 990,000 of it...you arent that close from being broke really quick...especially if you have expensive cars and homes you have to continue to pay.

With all of the Ted Nugent threads we've been having, how can you say that? It's possible that Olberman may be among the world's biggest assholes, but he doesn't out asshole Ted.

I saw his (Olberman's) old show a few times, and I enjoyed it. Doesn't mean he isn't an asshole though, I have nothing to go on there.

Article summary: "Here's a picture of Keith Olbermann in casual clothing, doesn't he look sad?" The saddest part is it's very likely the person that wrote that article makes more money than I do.
 
2012-04-21 11:31:38 PM  
That's just an example of a reporter desperate to berate someone.

Being a broadcast journalism student at present, it never ceases to amuse me how many of my classmates wear their stories too close to the chest.

This will only lead to very biased, very slanted reporting. But they all look better than me, so I guess they'll get jobs anyway.

And so it goes.

I have the face for radio and the voice for print.

That, and the fact that his viewership was down to double digits before he got canned. Seriously, how the heck can he be getting paid 10 mil a year? That's around 750 thousand bucks per viewer.

I love it when liberals lose a poster boy.


He's not dead.

Also -- individuals run for office, become stars, commit crimes, succeed or fail.
If you don't like KO, just be direct. Apparently from what I've heard "liberals" aren't all that fond of the guy anyway. As I'm sure most conservatives think Glenn Beck is probably more twisted jester than serious pundit. (Goddamn I miss the days of William F. Buckley Jr.....THAT was talent)
