Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

   If you say something dumb, It's polite to say "I'm sorry, that was dumb". He just apologized for the whole "take her into a room" thing, gave it some context. I thought that was really upfront of him. It did come out pretty "mangled", to use the popular term.

There's no reason we can't be civil, is there?

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

Thanks - I was thinking about how to say that so we can hopefully get those diaries off the rec list.  I'm a Hillary supporter, and mad at Keith, but I don't think he meant anything threatening by the remark.

I'm rec'ing.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

Have so mojo for a sane response.  I wouldn't hold out hope for the rec list though.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

Do you have any idea how insane that statement sounds?

Hugo Chavez is one of the good guys.

Don't believe me?  Watch this.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

He did at least do a fair job with the Clyburn interview - he didn't take advantage of the opportunity to agree with the sentiment.  I'll give him credit for that.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

KO is a sniviling weasel.

With "friends" like him, who needs enemies?

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

So the remark was offensive? I thought those diaries in the rec list were snarks! They weren't?

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

The rec list diaries weren't just claiming offense, they were saying Keith actually wanted to do physical harm to Hillary.  Yeah, they are that unhinged.

Ok so

if nobody thought that Keith actually wanted to do physical harm to Hillary, why was the remark offensive?

I fail to see it...

I also cannot tell what is a snark and what is not. In dKos, things are much simpler.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

did he say sorry to Hillary: probably not, right? he says he regrets what he says but no apology to Hill... fill me in here, I refuse to watch MSNBC.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

It's one of those stupid things you say in the heat of frustration and later come to regret.  He apologized, but he still can't take it back.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

well, then, if he cannot be objective about it, then he should just call himself to be in the same league as O'Reilly or Hannity or Matthews.

seriously, a couple of weeks ago, a guest of his called himself & KO "journalists".

and KO didn't bother to correct him, so I have to assume that KO believes himself to be a journalist.  Word - he ain't.

Classy?  No.  Not after he compared Hillary's campaign to David Duke.

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

I was reading an article in what I believe was Time magazine where it said that these "journalists" or "hosts" should come out with their bias as far as who they support, that it would actually be better for their integrity.

Keith Olbermann is an Obama whore

Re: Keith Olbermann is a classy guy

Sorry. I disagree very much. Look up what he said right after his so called "apology". Giving time to Clyburn, an Obama supporter, to play the race card and destroy Bill Clinton's legacy was too much. (I watched this episode.. but won't make that mistake again).

KO is not classy. Not by a long shot.

Apologies only mean something when the person apologizing means it. To me, it didn't come across that way at all.

Keith Olbermann is as insane as O'Reilly

and probably more insidious. There is no class or civility to him...NONE.
