Rarely do you see anyone speak out against the president in such a blatant way. Keith Olbermann IMO is a true patriot because of this. He is not afraid to speak his mind on national TV, nor it seems, does he care for any repercussion that might result from his flaming of the executive branch. Fight on Keith Olbermann, we are behind you!

Some video's of him flaming bush:

Keith Olbermann is a big, ugly, left-wing blowhard gasbag. He's about as credible as Rosie O'Donnell.

PS his ratings are pretty pathetic. Take a look sometime. :laugh:

Everyone should be as angry as he is. Just shows how Blindly Partisan US Politics has become that they are not.

Speaking of ugly blowhard gas bags, that pretty much describes you and the rest of the lying brown nosed neocon Bushwhacko pimps, still regurgitating and recycling LIE after LIE after LIE spun by the TRAITOR IN CHIEF and his criminal cabal of MURDERERS and TRAITORS.

US Cable News Ratings: Countdown on the rise

Bill O'Reilly use to bragg about how his 11pm airing got a better number than Keith Olbermann's 8pm airing. He might not have that to be able to bragg about for much longer.

On Tuesday, MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann at 8pm had 874,000 total viewers, 273,000 in the money demo, compared to The O'Reilly Factor at 11pm having 867,000 total viewers, 226,000 in the money demo. This was reported by Inside Cable News who use live numbers only.

TV Newser, who use Live + Same Day numbers reported that Countdown at 8pm had 952,000 total viewers, 316,000 in the money demo. Compare this to the 11pm Factor having 879,000 total viewers, 226,000 in the money demo.

Not that Bill O'Reilly had bad numbers that day. TV Newser reported 2.747 million viewers watched the 8pm airing of the Factor, 471,000 in the money demo, according to Live + SD numbers, whilst Inside Cable News reported that the live numbers for the Factor were 2.71 million total viewers, 459,000 in the money demo.

Now, TV Newser have released the Live + SD numbers for Wednesday, and it makes fascinating reading.

The O'Reilly Factor at 8pm had 2.85 million total viewers and 658,000 in the money demo, some of O'Reilly's best numbers this year. At 11pm, he did very well again, scoring 1.208 million viewers, 401,000 in the money demo.

But again, Countdown at 8pm beats Factor at 11pm, with Countdown's best ever numbers. A massive 1.209 million viewers watched Countdown, 409,000 in the money demo, beating the 11pm Factor by 1,000 total viewers and 8,000 demo viewers. This is an incredible performance, by anybody's standards. More people watched Countdown on MSNBC than watched any individual programme on both CNN and Headline News and also The Big Story on Fox News Channel. Expect John Gibson on The Big Story to do his usual anti-Keith Olbermann hit job tomorrow then!

Now, Inside Cable News has also reported the live numbers, and not surprisingly, with the Live+SD numbers being so close, The Factor at 11pm had more live viewers. 1.186 million total viewers, 391,000 in the money demo, compared to Countdown at 8pm with 1.148 million total viewers, 375,000 in the money demo.

Still, these are record numbers for Countdown, the first time they have scored over a million viewers live, and against top class numbers for O'Reilly too. O'Reilly fans and Olby haters are going to hate me for saying this, but this is fair and square, a great showing for Keith Olbermann, not only against O'Reilly himself, but a great rating show. Whether Olbermann will overtake O'Reilly at some point in the future, well, who knows. If it were to happen, it wouldn't be for a few years yet, but at this point, I wouldn't rule it out.

Look at Ron Paul's 'ratings' and then look at the enthusiasm people are showing for his campaign.. Who fucking cares what Olbermann's ratings are. Lately, the man has been speaking the truth.. and my TV has been on MSNBC instead of FOX News.

Pab, you're out of touch.

Olbermann is a true patriot in the finest sense and tradition of the word. If you missed Bill Moyers' interview with him on PBS, last night, here's the transcript of the show]. A notable quote:

BILL MOYERS: Rolling Stone calls Keith Olberman "the most honest man in news." Critics accuse him of extended polemics, and national review calls him, "shameless". Olberman shrugs it off. After years of knocking around broadcasting mainly as a sportscaster. He's found his place and his voice. His nightly countdown on MSNBC is the fastest-growing news show on cable television.

And Pabster's lying about the ratings, and more important than just pissing them off, Olbermann is right.

Until the neocon sycophants can fact check him and prove him wrong, they can call him names and rant all they want, but that's all they can do. Their credibility is already shot. :thumbsup: :cool: :thumbsup:

Olbermann isn't a patriot. He's that other "p" word - a partisan. You can append hack onto the end of that as well. He's no less partisan or shrill than O'Reilly and occassionally even comes off as the lefty version of Anne Coulter when he goes into spittle-filled rant mode.

Harvey, his rating have been 'on the rise' for two years now and he still gets his ass kicked every night.

You bolded the part which shows that O'Reilly reruns at 11pm are getting almost the same rating as Olberman's 8pm ratings. That tells you all you need to know.

So, what's the problem with Olbermann? Is it the harsh tone he takes - or is something wrong with his facts?

I mean if it's facts, then we can debate that... other then that - it's just sour grapes from a sour group of people that can't face that everyone doesn't worship their neo-con totem....

No, he's not; you are.

Question tlc - was calling Nixon an abuser of power partisan, or the truth?

No, I'm not. Compare apples to apples, Harvey. O'Reilly blows Olbermann away at their respective time slots, and you know it. Quit taking talking points off left-wing nutjob sites.

Until the neocon sycophantsy can fact check him and prove him wrong, they can call him names and rant all they want, but that's all they can do. Their credibility is already shot. :thumbsup: :cool: :thumbsup:
He doesn't present any facts, he's a COMMENTATOR. You left-wingers seem to have a real problem discerning the difference between a COMMENTATOR and a JOURNALIST. The latter, Olbermann is not.

Olbermann is both. He does some reporting, and some commentary. Was Walkter Cronkite not a journalist because he expressed an opinion after visiting Vietnam, against the war?

Olberman quotes many Facts. Commentators are free to use Facts as much as the next guy. Some do, some don't. Olberman is one who does.

Fixed it for ya. :laugh:

He works for NBC, which is owned by GE. If they weren't happy with his growing ratings the making money he's making for them, he wouldn't be on the air.

I never said Billious doesn't have his own following. Brown nosing neocon sycophants like you and PJ are so out of tune with reality that your whack enough to suck on his bullshit, but that doesnt make what he says true.

Other reputable journalists call Olbermann a journalist. That's more than you can say for Billo or any other POS neocon mouthpiece on Faux. So before you open your mouth wide enough to suck on both feet, again, FACT CHECK what he says. If you can't find errors, you may have to try something other than spewing your usual bullshit.

I agree with a lot of what Olbermann says and stands for, but his delivery is so ridiculous that he's almost unbearable.

How interesting that the posts that have a negative attitude to Olberman again resort to the "if you can't attack the message, attack the messenger" tactic.

The urgent plea of some here seems to be "Please don't listen to him.", lots of other people don't, or that somehow, he lacks some special credentials that are required to examine and comment on our government officials.

No, I say that because he has his head so far up Hillary's rectum she's canceled her colonoscopies.
