Video: Shameless liar caught in especially shameless lie

posted at 10:50 pm on January 9, 2008 by Allahpundit

Nothing unusual about this, really. Just consider it a case study in how he operates: Any lie he thinks he can get away with, however easily debunkable it might potentially be, is fair game.

And yes, at the risk of being pedantic, the lesson to take away is that if he’s willing to put one over about something this trivial, he’s willing to do it in more serious contexts. Unless, of course, he’s caught out and publicly humiliated into apologizing. Click the image to watch.

I wonder how many people did not watch Sunday Night Football that otherwise would’ve had it not been for this buffoon?

Me, for one.

I turn SNF off when The UberHoser comes on.

This guy is, for football, what principle Ed Rooney was for baseball. How does this heavily made-up nitwit rate having a spot on SNF? It just proves that the liberal media is incestuous and self-perpetuating, even when broadcasting sporting events.

Come on, now you’re just rationalizing poor behavior. tlynch001 has a great point.

geckomon on January 10, 2008 at 9:27 AM

You honestly don’t see the difference? Really?

Wow.

Because he used to be a sportscaster with ESPN and FSN.
And he was terrible (oh so terrible) at that.

Everytime olbermann lies Rosie adds a milimeter to her thighs.

Sorry, but THAT is the quote of the week. ROFL

Ah, vanity. One can’t help but wonder if somedays, just somedays,Olby wakes up, looks at his face in the mirror, and in a bleak moment of clarity acknowledges deep within his tortured mind, that he is a lying, corrupted hack of epic proportions.

Olby a sports commentator? You’d think he would have been bitch-slapped by now by one of those big all pro linemen.

No, but Chuck Knoblauch did bean his mother in the head with a ball:

The suddenly scatter-armed second baseman made another wild throw Saturday, this one hitting a woman sitting behind the first-base dugout in a game against the Chicago White Sox.
New York newspaper reports Sunday identified the woman as Marie Olbermann, mother of Fox broadcaster Keith Olbermann.

Though I have no proof, I don’t think it was an “accident” as claimed. His time at Fox ended soon thereafter, when he made the move to politics…

I love how you answer for me then feign surprise as if I was the one who answered you. Of course there is a difference. The difference does not matter and is pretty much irrelevant.
There are many degrees of uncouth, and boorish behavior, some less caustic then the next, but it’s still poor behavior.
You are the example of someone who rationalizes inappropriate behavior to serve your purpose.
You turn this discussion of how Olby is caught in another lie, into a pissing contest. Someone calls the brash out and you defend it? Dude, weak.

All I can say is “Thanks God for Fox News!”. Otherwise, how mislead would this country be with the likes of MSNBC and CNN (and their unvetted objective questioners during the Republican debates) running amok spewing lies, spin, smoke & mirrors?

O’Reilly should loop that video for the entire hour of his show tonight.

Then, in the final minute, give Olby’s sign off that he’s stolen from Murrow.

Quite a line-up of back-to-back-to-back hateful liars MSNBC has feeding at their trough on weeknights. Matthews, Olbermann and Abrams …. three hours of continuous venomous attacks always followed by childish giggles, or goose honks in Matthews case

You’re right, Fox could do a weekly 1-2 hour show packed full of lies and spin of MSNBC, CNN and most of the major liberal newspapers around the country. All you have to do is have Brent Bozell host it and run through endless highlight clips from Olbermann Watch, Newbusters and the Media Research Center, pointing out every spin and lie the liberal media speaks or writes. Of course, Fox probably wouldn’t do that because they have something Olbermann, MSNBC and the other liberal outlets lack. It’s called “class”.

Planet Boulder on January 10, 2008 at 2:45 PM

I, for one will never watch a show with this mental midget.
I watch only the game and skip ANYTHING that involves this mental midget.

Guess I should watch the liar before I comment on it. But why waste my precious time.

Thanks, but no thanks. He’s an idiot and everyone knows it but him.

I think this tool has already been slapped. Is it possible that the doctor who delivered him slapped him on his head instead of his rear? That could explain, perhaps, the damaged brain he carries with him.

OBX Pete on January 10, 2008 at 7:09 PM

No brains…….no headaches.
Aspirin is one drug Liberals stay away from……..
