**Written by Doug Powers Nothing’s confirmed yet, but it would be a perfect match — Olbermann could spew the hot air and the ManBearPig could peddle the carbon offsets to Keith’s followers to protect themselves. It would be a “venom and antidote” business partnership made in heaven. From the New York Times: Keith Olbermann, the […]
**Written by Doug Powers Friday night was Keith Olbermann’s last day doing “Countdown” on MSNBC, and it would appear that most of America found out about it at around the same time Olbermann did. NBC Universal’s statement about Keith’s seemingly sudden departure is here. The media blogosphere lit up like Olbermann’s face when discussing arresting […]
**Written by Doug Powers Temp-host fail: Chris Hayes, tapped Friday by MSNBC to fill in for the indefinitely suspended Keith Olbermann as host of the prime-time political show “Countdown,” gave money to two Democratic campaigns in recent years. Now, following that disclosure, MSNBC says Mr. Hayes won’t get the gig after all. Mr. Hayes, editor […]
Good night and good riddance.

**Written by guest-blogger Doug Powers So far, I like Democrat Senate candidate Alvin Greene, because he doesn’t really say much, and, as a result, I believe him. Greene was the surprise winner in the Democrats’ South Carolina Senate primary, getting 59% of the vote, and, if a few unresolved legal issues are sorted out, he’ll […]
“You’re wasting valuable oxygen.”
Ugly picture, ugly picture, ha ha ha! That deranged talking head who called me a “big mashed up bag of meat with lipstick” and mocked my ethnic maiden name is suddenly concerned with public decorum. Ed Morrissey at Hot Air has the pathetic video of cable clown Keith Olbermann naming me “worst person in the […]
On MLK Day last month, the Denver Public Schools served Southern-style fried chicken, biscuits, and collard greens for lunch. Despite the fact that MLK was actually from the South and actually liked those foods, the racial grievance crowd raised hell and complained that the menu was RAAAAACIST — prompting an apology from the school system. […]
You already know that the “M” in “MSNBC” stands for misogyny. Well, the “SNBC” stands for Simpering Neanderthals Bashing Conservatives. Here’s Keith Olbermann coughing up his bile against Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown: In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians […]
Palin-bashers of pallor.
Just an update to the bizarro ad hominem attack that I responded to last night: Johnny Dollar takes you on a tour of the MSNBC Misogyny Hall of Shame. And liberal Tommy Christopher calls out the deranged Keith Olbermann for his “dehumanizing terms.” Much appreciated. Christopher contacted MSNBC for comment. They had none. The silence […]
Washington Post reporter Ann Gerhart’s Page A1 conservatives-are-horrible-ogres article led MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann to liken me tonight to a “big mashed up bag of meat with lipstick” and to rail about my “fascistic hatred.” But remember: Only conservatives are horrible ogres. Newsbusters has the report for the 99.99999 percent of Americans who don’t watch Olbermann’s […]

“MSNBC is behaving like a heroin addict.”
Hardball? Don’t count on it.
Death of the grown-up, part 5,999.
The digs at FOB Justice My HotAir.com colleague Bryan Preston and I are back from Iraq. Thanks to Allah and Ian for holding down the fort at HA and thanks much to guest-bloggers Mary Katharine Ham, See-Dubya, and the Big Lizards for filling in here during my absence. Be sure to bookmark their blogs. Our […]
I don’t like to mud wrestle, but sometimes the slime-flingers need to be held accountable. All week, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann and his left-wing vassals have tried to blame female conservative commentators for one nutball’s fake anthrax letter attacks. Reportedly, the suspect was a Free Republic.com member whose pseudonymous profile noted that he “worshipped” Ann […]
The obscene, abusive, unhinged jerk Keith Olbermann earns his own prize. His book, “Worst Person in the World,” is due out in September. The “worst person” designation, he told a reporter last December, is “for somebody who’s wrong and egregiously stupid and abusing their own position.” Takes one to know one. *** Catch up at […]
The anti-troops brigade at UC Santa Cruz has now called in the left-wing blogosphere’s kings of hate to attack me. For what? For linking to a Students Against War press release bragging about booting military recruiters off campus and for re-posting publicly available contact info for the SAW press machine. See here and here for […]
Tonight. 9pm EST. President Bush addresses the nation on Iraq. Preview: The speech will mark the first time he has spoken on Iraq from the Oval Office since launching the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. According to the excerpts released Sunday, Bush will hail Thursday’s vote as “the beginning of something new: constitutional democracy […]
Is liberal former San Francisco Supervisor Angela Alioto not extreme enough for MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann? According to Alioto, after refusing to call for Bill O’Reilly’s outright sacking from the FOX News Channel over recent comments about the city, she was bumped from “Countdown”. See the full story here at the Radio Equalizer.
Here’s a peek behind the cable TV curtain. It’s not pretty. So, my publicist arranges for me to go on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews on Thursday night to talk about my recent columns on the FBI and national security profiling and my new book. Despite the show’s basement ratings, we figure it’s a good […]
