    I agree with Olbermann...but why do they have someone like him picking out "bad people" when he is a jacka$$.

    Keith Olberman is a dispicable human being. Why in God's name does NBC even have that pig of a person on? He doesn't even know crap about sports.

    I recommend you actually WATCH or READ something of Olbermann's. He's incredibly thorough, well prepared, well-researched and smart. He is NOTHING like you've described. Honestly, anyone describing him that way cannot have actually experienced his show, whether or not you agree with his style or perspective. A "despicable human being?" Based on what???

    Re: Olbermann names Jet fans "WORST PERSONS IN THE NFL..."

    I suspect he's basing it on Bill O'Reilly's opinion. Olbermann is actually a ridiculously scrupulous and careful journalist - and one with a good sense of humanity and perspective. When he F's up, he admits it and corrects it. When his STAFF messes up (as they did while he was on vacation), he clears out an entire segment to apologize to the offended party, and to take personal responsibility since it's his name on the show. And while his bleeding heart can be a bit cloying at times, it's never in the wrong place.

    People might not agree with his position on things, but to call him a despicable human being is a laughable, if tacit and inadvertant, admission that you've never actually watched his show.

    Agreed. Olbermann is in a position of influence but he does NOT abuse it. He is very rational and quite favorable to the everyman. Anyone who is blindly deterent is simply being contrary and looking for am intellectual handout, if not worse.

    OH, and Jets fans were decidely tasteless. Awful.

    If by "thorough" you mean scripted, and "well prepared" meaning manufactured or slanted, then I would agree with you. The guy is an arrogant ********* that loves only the sound of his own voice. If you like what comes out of his mouth, and think its wisdom, then i feel very sorry for you.

    I love that he elicits that kind of reaction from the Bushbots.

    Re: Olbermann names Jet fans "WORST PERSONS IN THE NFL..."

    Let me see ..... he's a "scrupulously careful" journalist ... that has had to retract or amend, in some cases several times ..... whole telecasts based on information that was provably false. What kind of guy with "his heart in the right place" blames his staff ? The only reason the retractions hit the air is because the blogosphere is on the guy like white on rice. Cmon, you can't seriously believe this crap, can you ?

    He's such a great journalist that MSNBC has seen its rating drop every year since he's been on.

    He might have a point on the staff though. When your research is done by 20-somethings with unemployable liberal arts degrees who spend all their time surfing conspiracy websites and wear Al Franken T-shirts, you have to expect that there would be some mistakes.

    Also, I see you have been cut and pasting this same tripe over on the Jets boards. Don't you have anything better to do ?

    R

    p.s. I notice that the Jets fans have the same negative opinion of Olbermann as we have seen posted over here. Shouldn't they know ? After all, he's "one of them".

    Enjoy

    Thats ironic. Because I love it when people who substitute their own sense and judgement for that of a blowhard failed sportscaster who doesn't even know sports gets upset when said icon is criticized, and have to resort to calling people funny names.

    Enjoy.

    Re: Olbermann names Jet fans "WORST PERSONS IN THE NFL..."

    MSNBC's ratings have soared in Olbermans time slot and he's the only newscaster on television telling the truth about the war criminals in the White House. Its good to see that pisses off the seriously demented and still loyal bushies.


    That aside the JETfans most certainly were cheering the fact that Pennington got hurt, and Olberman was right, as usual.

    Quoted for complete innacuracy. The only thing Olbermn has ever apologized for was a piece they ran when he was off that he felt was innapropriate. The talking heads on Faux News have to scrub their websites daily to clean the lies from their shows off them.


    Shouldn't be too long before this is moved to a political forum, where it belongs.

    According to Steve Capus, president of MSNBC, ''Countdown has put MSNBC back on the map'' and its ratings are up 85 percent over last year. Other than the geriatric crowd Olberman is hammering the liar O'Reilly in the ratings.

    I agree, thats where it belongs, and ''reasonable football discussion'' in this thread ended when some moron called Olberman ''a pig'' and ''dispicable.'' --the third grade spelling error was quoted by me to demonstrate the IQ of the poster who said it. It is ''despicable.''

    He doesn't even know crap about sports? The guy spent five years on Sports Center and won awards for it. But your right...they tend to put people there that don't know anything about sports. You should check some facts before you shoot off your mouth.

    Keith Olberman is great. Love his schtick!! For the record, he doesn't know why he's so popular either. By his own admission, a guy who cut his teeth on Sportscenter should no be the most popular news show on the NBC networks.
