With all due respect to Keith, that's not exactly unique insight.

Spotting the obvious isn't a gift, KO.  And being a good judge of character (or hell, even having good character) means jack all in today's world.

Ambivalence: Spotting the obvious isn't a gift, KO.  And being a good judge of character (or hell, even having good character) means jack all in today's world.


Given that Olbermann used to sleep with Laura Ingraham, his ability to judge character seems somewhat questionable.  Although maybe she's just that good in bed and/or Keith is into Nazi role playing.

KO has been dogging O'Reilly since he was on MSNBC during the Bush years. This is hardly a revelation.

Keith is more insane than Bill, which is hard to be.
 
2017-04-20 07:58:31 PM  
So why didn't he do anything to stop the Big Bill?

Less racist and harassy, though.

We all knew that, and Keith Olbermann is an insufferable douchebag.

Bill argued "Tide comes in, tide goes out, can't explain that" as evidence of divine intervention.

I want hard evidence supporting your statement.

No amount of "SIR"s is going to keep media douches from thinking politics is anything but a game. It's a beat they cover, like basketball or hollywood.

'I Genuinely Thought He Was a Menace': Keith Olbermann On the Ouster of Bill O'Reilly

That title suggests that Olbermann considers the guy responsible for firing O'Reilly to be a menace.

/I guess you could argue that O'Reilly is responsible for firing himself.

To be fair, it didn't really mean jack all in yesterday's world either...
 
2017-04-20 08:49:11 PM  
I wonder how many times Bill won the Worst Person in the World list.
 
2017-04-20 08:55:02 PM  
Just curious, what are the right wing nut jobs saying about BillO's firing? Hopping mad? Don't care? Gay chem trails? What's the word?

I hoping for impotent fury. But I generally ignore RWNJ world.

At least Olberman was mostly fired because of disputes with management.

Bullshiat. Keith Olbermann is just an ass. Bill O'Reilly is anal nobility. He's the landed gentry of buttholes. He runs his own sphincter barony.

Wish KO had an hour on Friday nights somewhere.

The world is worse off without KO doing baseball highlights.
 
2017-04-20 09:33:16 PM  
Ugh, I agree with Keith Olberman on most things, but I don't want him to be the one to express those opinions. He just rubs me the wrong way. Should have stuck to sports.

For some reason, "ouster" seems to mean "the act of being ousted," which annoys the hell out of me.

oust·er
ˈoustər/
noun
1.
NORTH AMERICAN
dismissal or expulsion from a position.
"a showdown that may lead to his ouster as leader of the party"

... Is that someone's actual counter-argument? "B-b-but Joe Biden"?

None of those women (even the ones not photoshopped) sued Biden for sexual harassment, likely because Biden knows how not be a creepy predatory toad.
 
2017-04-20 09:46:44 PM  
Keith Olbermann sometimes is a long-winded ass, no doubt about it.

However.....

Keith Olbermann also has a good sense of humor, is a better human being than Bill O'Reilly, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of sports - especially baseball.  I miss him far more from ESPN than I do from MSNBC.

It's not a glamorous job, but in every thread somebody is responsible for bringing the weak sh*t. Thanks for shouldering the burden.

I find it to be very telling that the right are literally unable to tell the difference between a platonic touch and molestation.

The right has elevated it to an art form. "Deliberately missing the point in order to steal umbrage" is the scrimshaw of our age.

Now show us the pictures of O'reilly that close to women without them recoiling in horror.
I tried a google search that was bill+oreilly+with+women, but, I only got his angry blotchy face, and pictures of his accusers or something like this:img.fark.net

Then I did the same with Joe Biden and I got this:
img.fark.net
And all of his pictures with the opposite sex is usually goofy, playful and flirty. Also you could read the background behind the photo such as http://www.investors.com/politics/andrew-malcolm/joe-biden-update-​stat​es-opposition-to-abusing-women/ .
/you can tell who loves women
//and who despises women
///but i know you were just giving us some "jazz"

 The fact that Fark generally concurs that KO is a 'nozzle speaks volumes about us. "We" lefties are willing to point out our pundits' douchebaggery, as opposed to making leaps to defend him no matter what he says.

 I also congratulate and sniff my own farts.
