Olbermann leaves Daily Kos By: Andy Barr June 17, 2010 01:33 PM EDT
Keith Olbermann announced Wednesday night that he will cease blogging for the liberal Daily Kos over a comment directed at the MSNBC hosts coverage.
Olbermann and some of his MSNBC colleagues surprised their left-leaning fans on Tuesday with eviscerating critiques of President Barack Obamas Oval Office address on the oil spill spewing off the Gulf Coast.
It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days, Olbermann said of the presidents remarks, echoing similarly negative comments from fellow MSNBC hosts Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow.
One commenter on the Daily Kos, where Olbermann has frequently blogged over the years, speculated that the pattern of hosts generally sympathetic to the president bashing the administration was too consistent to be a coincidence.
Cant verify, of course, the commenter began, but a friend in the news biz tells me he got a damaging e-mail from one of his pals at NBC. Something to the effect that their anger was pre-planned because beating up on the president has been good for ratings. I haven't checked, but I'm hearing that Olbermann slammed the speech on Twitter before it even started.

So the fact that they pulled their heads out of their butts long enough to realize that Obama isn’t a god gets them attacked by those who still think he’s a god.
ROFLMAO, nobody in my trailer park watches Olberman anyway!
Now if he could just get someone to de-lice and fumigate the place...
The RATS are feasting on their own. Wonderful.
I’ll bring the popcorn.
Not only have the talking heads on MSNBC breached their oath of personal loyalty to Der Fuhrer, but they are obviously racists. (Only racists question the Annointed One’s divinity.)
...”beating up on the president has been good for ratings.”
....well, what does that say about the mood of the public?...looks like the MSM has figured out why people watch FOX and not their network...it’s because FOX is not afraid to point out the emperor has no clothes.
Does Olbermann know that Obama was a prominent contributor to Daily Kos?
In Olbermann's case, he an O-Puss...
“Something to the effect that their anger was pre-planned.”
You have to admit, it sure did seem fishy.
"If I've lost Olbermann I've lost nutjob America."
isn’t it obvious? KOS is only pro-obama for ratings. They’re projecting
I strongly suspect that the rare negative story regarding Obama from the MSNBC “hosts” is a lame attempt at saving their jobs when Comcast takes full control. It wasn’t until the takeover was a done deal that these occasionally negative stories started to appear. Hopefully, though, they’re a day late and a dollar short, and will be booted when Comcast takes full control and decides that it would rather make money than support an all-Obama-propaganda channel.
DUmmie FUnnies is my favorite FR feature because it shows the lunacy of the `Leave Brittany alone!`mindset of political partisans. Olberman is a silly putz who can`t take a word of criticism, so it`s hilarious to see him victimized by the Obama fans he has fed his bilge all these months. But it`s sad to see how many silly people don`t think the president can be criticized.
Not sure I’m buying any of this. EVeryone knows that the KOS kids and Olberman wanted the same thing out of the president and his pedantic speech. They all want nothing less than a brutal brow-beating of BP and Big Oil, with a side order of Capitalism Sucks.
Filling in for OverBite will be Jesse ‘The Bod’ Ventura..
I had a thought that maybe Obbie and Chrissey received a warning from Comcast.
Gee, a conspiracy theory got rid of Olberdork?
Lets start some more!!!
“Olberman gained name recognition by reporting against Clinton during the impeachment hearings - he’s doing it again to boost his sagging ratings”
“Olbermann still has feelings for Laura Ingraham”
“He wants to be a full time sportsbroadcaster”
Revolutions...they almost always eat their own.
Olbermann loosing face over being all atwitter over Daily KOS.
Haha, what a bunch of catty little bitches.
Keith only knows how to complain. He got exactly what he claimed he wanted when 0bama got elected and couldn’t handle it.
Conservative broadcasters are better then that as they knew how to deal with a republican president without losing it.
One trick pony Keith has lost the dims now he only has the whackos that even the dims don’t want.
He is making them look like bigger asses than they already are.
Not just one leg, but BOTH legs are tingling over this.
Precisely what we’ve been plotting for some time now!
Keith cracked under the pressure.
Keith lashed out at his precious honeycomb hideout since lesbo Maddow got to go to a White House lunch and political fiction writer Larry O’Donnell’s new show will knock Keith’s repeat show back an hour costing him even more viewers. Even tingling Matthews got to do a hackjobumentary with NBC monies about the emerging right.
One bad week for Keith and he rolls over on his loyal friends.
Keith is becoming a Norma Desmond over at MSNBC and I am sure that that is entharling to both of he viewers.
... Obama held an off-the-record lunch Thursday at the White House with several prominent political writers and pundits: the Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson, the Wall Street Journal’s Jerry Seib, the New York Times’ Gail Collins and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. (Arianna Huffington was also invited, but according to her own White House reporter, she couldn’t attend because of a scheduling conflict.)
*****these media persons are getting their talking points today
Those pulling the strings are tossing Obama to the wolves ... That would be the CPUSA.
Or is it Olberman et-al being thrown to the wolves?
I suppose this is what a liberal temper tantrum looks like.
We haven’t had a good opus in ages.
ROTFLAMO!!!!!!!! You are so completely correct! Keefie popped off an OPUS! LMAO! On the QQ on DailyKooks has to be extreme!
I'm sure this person is equally annoyed when every MSM outlet spews the same lib talking points on a nightly basis, practically word-for-word! /s
Oh, the irony.
At this point Keith is just comic relief.
Reminds me of a joke I heard many years ago:
Did you hear that 50 students transferred from (insert a college name here) to (insert a different college name here)? It raised the IQ at both schools.
Thin skin; dense cranium.
I think Olbersissy’s hissy fit is due to his unspoken desire to show everybody that his skin is even thinner than Obamie’s.
