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.
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.
Well this makes me wonder... First BOR whips up on FR saying its the nastist far right blog, then this MSNBC loser slanders FR, it just makes me think of that old saying “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” which then creates a link between Oberman and O’Reilly...
He Got It From huffington Post
Okay, Überdork. What was this sick psycho’s FreeRepublic screen name? Please produce all posts that von Brunn made ON our website—NOT posts by FReepers that stupidly cared what said scumbag had to say, but ACTUAL posts made BY von Brunn under HIS screen name.
You can’t produce that, Keith? Really? Everything is archived. Can’t you produce some evidence? Proof? Anything?
Put up or shut up, you troglodyte.
If the media or FR can tell me this guys handle then proper research could be done to ascertain the identity and types of posts. However, I don't believe it would amount to anything any way.
After lurking here for several years and now being a FR poster for the past year there aren't to many antisemitic or racists remarks that don't go unchallenged. The challenges to inappropriate posters come from other posters who will tell demand toning down unacceptable language and can even go so far as to “reporting abuse” to the administrators.
A guy with the attitude and rants the media has been implying but are short on details, wouldn't last five minutes here.
This is just fake but accurate reporting and unless they can come up with specifics, we should ignore them.
It might do him some good to know that some lefties think people like him should be "rounded up" for talking the way he does.
Fixed it for you... :-)
Uberdork HAS four viewers?
What are their DU screen names?
I can’t stand that they have him on SNF. That night they were doing the green crap and had the lights out in the studio, I would have changed the channel if my Cowboys weren’t playing.
Conversely, Von Brunn was a 9/11 “truth-er” nut, and anti Bush, anti neocon, anti Iraq war(?)... so I would say it a fair bet he did post at Daily KOS or DU
Let's find some real truth about Von Brunn and shove it up Uberdouche's ass Hey Uberdouche, Von Brunn also a hater on Fox News Bill'O... just like you... bet Von Brunn posted to Uberdouche board..if he has one
