Keith Olbermann free speech hypocrite of the day

Keith Olbermann is trying to be relevant again by saying President Trump is behind efforts by CNN and MSNBC not to hire him.

I think his long record of being obstinate and getting fired already poisoned that well.

But Keith also is trying to market himself as some sort of free speech champion.

Um, no.

From the Hill:
Earlier this month, Olbermann called President Trump a "pitiful thug" who wants to squash free speech.
"Freedom of speech is the purpose of the United States of America,” Olbermann said. “And every time this country’s government has tried to alter that fact or has ignored it in the slightest, it has met with disaster.
“Constitutional change to limit free speech would not be just a step on a slippery slope, but it would putting the entire nation in an 18-wheeler and driving it full speed down that slippery slope.”
Like I said, um, no.

Keith back Hillary's unconstitutional attempt to silence a critic of her senatorial career in the Citizens United case.

From Keith on January 21, 2010:
Today, the Supreme Court, of Chief Justice John Roberts, in a decision that might actually have more dire implications than "Dred Scott v Sandford," declared that because of the alchemy of its 19th Century predecessors in deciding that corporations had all the rights of people, any restrictions on how these corporate-beings spend their money on political advertising, are unconstitutional.
In short, the first amendment — free speech for persons — which went into affect in 1791, applies to corporations, which were not recognized as the equivalents of persons until 1886. In short, there are now no checks on the ability of corporations or unions or other giant aggregations of power to decide our elections.
None. They can spend all the money they want. And if they can spend all the money they want — sooner, rather than later — they will implant the legislators of their choice in every office from President to head of the Visiting Nurse Service.
Blah, blah, blah. Then this ending:
Be prepared for those poor dumb manipulated bastards, the Tea Partiers, to have a glorious few years as the front men as the corporations that bankroll them slowly unroll their total control of our political system. And then be prepared to watch them be banished, maybe outlawed, when a few of the brighter ones suddenly realize that the corporations have made them the Judas Goats of American Freedom.
And be prepared, then, for the bank reforms that President Obama has just this day vowed to enable, to be rolled back by his successor purchased by the banks, with the money President Bush gave them his successor, presumably President Palin, because if you need a friendly face of fascism, you might as well get one that can wink, and if you need a tool of whichever large industries buy her first, you might as well get somebody who lives up to that word "tool."
Be prepared for the little changes, too. If there are any small towns left to take-over, Wal-Mart can now soften them up with carpet advertising for their Wal-Mart town council candidates, brought to you by Wal-Mart.
And then MSNBC cut to a commercial to pay Olbermann's multi-million-dollar salary -- a salary he wants back so he can spew his faux anti-corporate blather.

On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

  2. I tried to stay informed listening to Olbermann, but I found Michael Moore to be more enlightening. Oh sure, Keith knows how Tur's panties fit him. but Michael Moore never says anything that is unbelievable.

  3. It is my belief that Keith Olbermann contracted rat lungworm some time back, and the little thing is about halfway to his cerebral cortex, happily munching away. There is no other plausible explanation.

  5. I remember reading that someone at ESPN said they would only hire Olbermann back if everyone that worked there got to line up and punch him. That's how well he's liked.

  9. Yet we all known when it comes to marketing people are going to do what they can to sell a product. Being an informed consumer is your way to ensure that you don't fall for these types of marketing and pay too much for items that in reality aren't completely organic. By taking the time to read what the labels say and understanding what they mean you can put the ball back into your own court.The benefits of eating organic food are plenty and that is why this industry continues to grow. Organic Total Body Reboot Consumers want to know that they are eating foods which are very good for them. They also want to know that they are helping the environment. These are the main benefits that come from eating organic foods. Anything that is certified as being organic is at least 95% organically grown.

    This means that no chemicals are used for them - not as sources of fertilizer, as pesticides, or as herbicides. That is important because such chemicals will end up remaining to some degree on these fresh fruits and vegetables. As we consume them those toxins enter our bodies. We are led to believe that they aren't harmful but consider the number of people with serious health problems in our society it has many wondering if this is they reason why.There is no reason to consume such harmful byproducts when you don't have to. Organic foods taste just like those which do have chemicals so you aren't sacrificing anything by purchasing what is safer for you to use. If the high cost of organic foods isn't something you can handle then consider growing some of your own. There is plenty of great information online to walk you through such a process.

    Boomers are starting to retire. By 2020, in less than a decade, the number of boomers in the workforce will have decreased by 50%. What is hoped, by service and volunteer organizations, is that this will increase the number of boomers looking to volunteer their time and services to the various volunteer and service organizations needing their resources. However, the challenge for leaders of volunteer organizations is not just attracting more volunteers and encouraging them to donate more of their time to voluntary tasks, but, to attract and retain boomers, these organizations will need to provide the right type of volunteer opportunity. For Boomers, the right type of opportunity is one that encourages them to utilize the skills, knowledge and experience they have spent their entire working lives to acquire.
