A few months ago, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann wouldn’t admit that he was a liberal:
“I find myself currently aligned, not in the sense of having membership, but being in the same part of the ballpark as a lot of liberals,” says the host of MSNBC’s “Countdown.”
In April of this year, liberal blogs such as Crooks & Liars (which Keith’s book is being advertised on), former astrology site and liberal powerhouse MyDD, and AlterNet got their panties in bunch and started an uproar because advertisements for the movie United 93 appeared on conservative blogs and not liberal ones. John Amato at Crooks & Liars gets credit for noticing the U93 ad slant.
However, none of these bloggers, including Amato, is complaining that Keith Olbermann’s new book, “Worst Person in the World,” is only being advertised on liberal blogs. Below you will find screenshots of the ad on liberal blogs such as Daily Kos, Crooks & Liars, and Talking Points Memo:
What, no love for Hot Air, Keith? When we post your oh-so-special comments, we probably triple your reach.
Apparently, Keith’s not a liberal–just like Crooks & Liars and other liberal whiners are not hypocrites.
