All About Keef: Olby Responds to Reports of His Bad Behavior (Without Expaining What He's Accused of)

Newsman.

Note the dishonesty and curious omissions:

Over the weekend here in Denver Tom Brokaw -- who has been utterly supportive of me to the extent that an email he sent me after a primary night in March still sits in printout form in my wallet -- is at a panel when Ed Rendell detonates about MSNBC doing (fill in the blank).

Let me fill in that blank since you're apparently too embarrassed to do so yourself: He accused you, and Matthews, and MSNBC of being blatantly in the tank for Obama. (On another occasion he said Olbermann "should be on the Obama payroll.")

Seems a rather large thing to just yadda yadda yadda over, huh?

Tom explains that while even he thought, personally, that Chris and I may have gone further during the primaries than he would have, he thought that the more reserved work of others on the air more than balanced out that minor complaint.

Brokaw did not say that. He did not say that "personally" he thought Olbermann and Matthews went "further... than [Brokaw] would have," as if it's some subjective standard he's talking about, and that Olbermann is just practicing a different style than Brokaw's, but a valid one just the same.

He said, "I think Chris has gone too far. I think Keith has gone too far." Period. Objectively, according to an external, objective standard, and not according to Brokaw's personal preferences and idiosyncracies.

Funny that Olbermann can't manage to track down such a brief quotation, especially since it is rather easy to find: There are over 250,000 Google responses for "Chris Keith gone too far."
