Skip to comments.Olbermann Lies About Free Republic on MSNBC
Posted on 06/12/2009 1:54:41 PM PDT by kristinn
Keith Olbermann, host of Countdown on MSNBC, lied about Free Republic last night in a segment on white supremacist James Von Brunn, the accused murderer of a Stephen Johns, a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
Olbermann falsely said that Von Brunn was a poster at Free Republic and that Free Republic is a Republican website.
A request for a correction has been made to Countdown via phone and e-mail.

Transcript available here.
Olbermann: Von Brunn himself posted on the Republican Web site, Free Republic, spouting the right-wing claim that Obamas birth certificate was forged, defending President Bush against Dan Rather, and claiming the media had tried to destroy Sarah Palin.
Hold him accountable for false information. Sue, Sue, and then sue again. What a creep.
The man described himself as a pagan socialist didn’t he?
Thanks to GOP_Lady for the heads up about this.
Do you see it all falling apart?
What a fool.
I think this deserves Jim’s attention.
So the one person who atcually watches that POS scumbag liar gave y’all a heads up? Not exactly a loyal fanbase.
To most libs, 'conservative' and 'Republican' are synonymous. Heck, they even think McCain is a conservative. ...so there's really no reasoning with them.
Olbermann makes me ill. Sue his simple ass for defaming the site and deliberately lying on air to both of his viewers.
Funny thing is if half the Freepers would watch his show his ratings would have quadrupled.
Sue this jerk for slander.
Even if you confuse the poster (wannabegeek) of Von Nutjob's article with Von Nunjob there isn't any posts about Rather or Palin in his post history. His post history isn't long so not hard to go through.
GOP_Lady deserves a medal for enduring MSNBC primetime to keep us apprised. I can only last a few minutes before change channels.
He would have lasted two seconds before the almighty ZOT descended.
Well, I guess the real question is ... if this Von Brunn fruitloop is really a FReeper, what’s his screen name?
By Olberman's logic, I am Dan Rather as I've posted an article written by him before. And by the same logic, Dan Rather is a Conservative Republican who thinks Dan Rather is an idiot because IF I am Dan Rather because I posted an article written by him, then anything I write must be attributed to Dan Rather..
I think I'll go post an article written by Olberman so he'll think I am him and get a nice headache trying to figure it out..
I would expect no less from KO. He has no shame. All that’s important is his message, not the truth of it.
If I watch Ms.NBC much, i’d make SONY stock go through the roof replacing smashed TV’s.
Paging Ben Afleck, Paging Ben Afleck....
Fortunately digital tvs have become commoditized and are very reasonably priced.
He’s working to create a lasting legacy as a bowel movement. We’ve always known it, so why keep giving him publicity?
I’m an Indie who leans Green.
I’m not a Republican and Olberman is a liar.
A well turned letter from Jim’s attorney to cease and desist would seem in order.
When is FR filing a lawsuit?
We know that Keith Ogre-man has no integrity.
Yes, not only was the killer a pagan socialist, but he decried Chrisitanity as a Jewish plot to destroy Rome.
The guy was also a “911 Truther” and despise Bush, Fox News, Bill O’Reily.
His next target was the Olberman-loathed Weekly Standard.
Suing could cause problems because the site may be forced to prove he wasn’t a member to prove our case, and in such, provide all registration information to show he isn’t on the list..
Not a FReeper.
One article he wrote (that was on another site) was posted here. If the media is going to report that that makes him a FReeper, then by virtue of that, Olbermann is also a FReeper.
This is a *conservative* website, not a Republican one.
Is there any lie a liberal won't tell or any truth they won't hide?
“...To most libs, ‘conservative’ and ‘Republican’ are synonymous.”
That’s correct, and same with all too many Republicans. That is part of the Conservative/Republican problem that we can’t get the traction we need.
If we can get people to understand Conservatism, then they’ll understand what a RINO is, and where they are trying to take the Party.
Shaking my head & mad again.... IMHO that Keith Olbermann is as he loves to say , the worst person in the world.
Olbermann still has a show? The man is so utterly intolerable, overbearing and ego driven that I find him unwatchable. Poor MSNBC.
Lol...I can see more lefties and libs clamoring to FR to “scout” out White Aryan Racists....biting their fingernails and downing green tofu tea by the gallon...just wanting to catch another terrorist for Charlie Obuma...
KO is trying desperately to get mention on other newscasts by trying to gin up a controversy, trying to weasel his way into the Tiller killer and Letterman debates.
Olbermann is an also-ran, worthless and meaningless.
Fighting the media double-standards is important.
Ignoring KO is, too.
You can tell when Olbermann is lying. His lips are moving.
Olbermann is channeling OReilly, his daddy.
Seriously. Sue Olbermann. This is defamation. Sue, baby, sue!
If Olbermann ever told the truth, hell would freeze over.
The guy is deluded, deceitful, and dangerous.
So are Karl Marx, Abraham Lincoln, and Mark Twain.
If a few Freepers decide to start watching his show to see the retraction, his ratings will quadruple..
Time to go after his advertisers....
I’d send out a media advisory titled something like this:
Keith Olbermann Falsely Accuses Free Republic of Having Holocaust Museum Shooter Among its Members
It’s not enough to get a half hearted apology from him on his show that only his mother listens to. FR should clear this up before it becomes conventional wisdom.
I’m not talking about a news release. Just a few sentences correcting the record.
According to the legal logic of Roe v. Wade I don't think 0lberdork is a 'person.' His brain has yet to be born.
He is prolly orgasmic reading this thread right now.
“The man is so utterly intolerable, overbearing and ego driven that I find him unwatchable.”
You KNOW he’s bad when one of his fellow liberals (can’t remember her name, unfortunately) says she’d rather have dinner with Sean Hannity than KO. He’s the whole reason I stopped watching Sunday Night Football.
Very unhappy mentally challenged and azzholes to boot. LOL
Combination for leftist azzs*cker.
Jealousy can be so ugly.
