Keith Olbermann: Jack Webb? No. Jack-off? Definitely.

by editor on November 18, 2010

IHateTheMedia.com is a form of civic duty and we’re proud to be able to do our part for the cause. But you know what sucks about it? What really sucks about it? We have to view MSNBC clips.

For example, today we want to point out the empty rhetoric of Keith Olbermann’s Wednesday night attack on Glenn Beck. But in order to provide the correct clip we have to watch the show again, and even worse, and to make sure we get the quotes correct we have to watch it over and over again and listen very closely to make sure we get the transcript correct. And as anyone with a functioning medulla oblongata knows, watching Olbermann even once is painful enough. Watching over and over again is a form of self-imposed cruel and unusual punishment.

But we digress.

In his attack on the three part series Beck is doing on George Soros, Olbermann mocks Beck for making his point with puppets and dismisses the Fox host as paranoid and psychotic.

What he does not do is challenge Beck on a single fact – typical of most left wing attacks on Beck.

Soros, according to Beck, has messianic delusions, despises the United States and provides the funding for dozens of progressive organizations – Media Matters, MoveOn.org, ACORN, Tides Foundation, etc. Many people feel Soros is the man behind the Obama administration itself. The exact amount of money he has funneled to Obama cannot be determined due to the lack of transparency in the collection of foreign campaign contributions during the 2008 presidential election. He supports abortion, atheism, open borders, gun control, legalized drugs, and euthanasia.

Rather than respond to the facts Beck presented, Olbermann lamely reverted to a failed attempt at comedic schtick as a diversion from the real issues.

One can only imagine that Sgt. Joe Friday, with his preoccupation with “Just the facts” would be deemed “unemployable” by the Human Resources department at MSNBC.

The difference between Beck’s puppet show and Olberman’s, is that Beck did research, and put together a scenario that makes sense, and Olberman was just being an ass. But then, that’s the way both of them always work.

No, the difference is that Beck puts his hand into a puppet. On MSNBC Soros sticks his up Olberman’s anus and moves his mouth.

Nah can’t do it… 4 minutes is too long. Attacking the messanger instead of debating the message is as old as time itself. I am not surprised and Dobermann without a bite is no different from all other progressive liberal out there. We should check his bank statements… it could be he gets some christmas bonuses from papa soros.

Note to Editor, and Administrator. We humbly thank you for the service you perform, and we DO understand how stressful it must be. But you know, as we do, that it MUST be done. Thank you. Without you, how would anybody know what is going on at MSNBC? Without you, MSNBC would lose half it’s audience.

I have this recurring dream, where I am walking down the street and out pop madcow, olberpussy, schultz, and matthews……It is an anxiety dream, because I keep taking swings at them with my lousville slugger, but it misses every time, and I can’t walk closer to them, because my feet are sticking to the NYC sidewalk…..
I would love to do a three stooges slap to them, but with A mace, or a crowbar, or a giant monkey wrench…in a dream of course, without the sticky NY sidewalk-and with better aim than in my nightmares.

They never attack him for the facts. They always attack him personally. It’s typical of Leftists.

Olbermann is an ass & Soros is an evil, evil man.

When did rhetoric and logical fallacies stop being taught in schools? I’m guessing either shortly after they were taken over by the state or after the teachers unions jumped in bed with the Dems….

Anyway. its like they go find the list of fallacies and build their arugments from there.

Ad Hominem? Check.
Straw Man? Check.
Appeal to Emotion? Double check.

and of course the non-classical ones.
Ludite Fallacy? Check.
Broken Window Fallacy? F*CK YA BABY!

Because trying to disprove the facts Glenn Beck presents would be way to hard for the left
