Keith Olbermann: I Was Beaten and Abused by Katy Tur

This is a few weeks old, but I completely missed it.

The Free Beacon gave him the Man of the Year Award for these brave confessions.

Olbermann was understandably disgusted after watching his sort of attractive ex-lover, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur, bully her husband into getting a vasectomy and turning it into a feminist publicity stunt. He had to speak out. "Bringing this up is obviously painful for me," Olbermann confessed on his Countdown podcast. "That's why I have not done it over the course of 15 years, but I've just had enough." He was beaten by a woman.

"I have remained silent even though six days after my emergency appendectomy in 2007, [Tur] started punching and slapping me, with real intent to do harm, because the living room wasn't clean enough," Olbermann testified on the airwaves. He went on to describe how Tur, his live-in girlfriend from 2006 to 2009, exploited his professional success to advance her own career. Female sociopaths often behave this way toward their victims. It is commonly known as "reverse grooming," "ambition grinding," "C-suite slopjousting," or simply "pulling a Kamala."

Olbermann explained how Tur continued to exert coercive control over him long after the relationship ended. He paid her rent for a year after she moved out so she could stay in New York. He paid off her student loans. He introduced her to all the right people. He got her booked on shows. He edited "nearly every one" of her scripts for MSNBC, sometimes rewriting them from scratch. He contributed intellectual research for her book about Donald Trump.

At long last, Olbermann stood up for himself. She asked him to write the entire book for her and he refused. And though few would argue that Keith's courage in that moment was commensurate to that of the American boys who stormed the beaches on D-Day, they are in fact no different. Because until society starts treating battered men with the dignity they deserve, predators like Tur will never stop.

We believe you, Keith, because men deserve to be believed. We already knew Katy Tur was a talentless dimwit. MSNBC wouldn't have hired her otherwise. We applaud your staggering bravery, your willingness to face down demons and confront your abuser. Now we know what a heartless monster she really is.

When I read this, I thought the Free Beacon was making it up.

They're not. Megyn Kelly plays a clip from the "Secrets About Katy Tur" rant below.

More: The megalomaniac Olbermann somehow imagines that the vasectomy story is about him, or a way of getting at him.

Even the leftwing Daily Beast goofs on him.

The 63-year-old bachelor spent the better part of 20 minutes unpacking a laundry list of grievances with Tur, saying he'd been "pushed... over the edge" by news that Dokoupil, who has been married to Tur since 2017, got snipped.

Calling the pair "insufferable publicity addicts," Olbermann accused Tur of "turning a vasectomy into a photo op," adding that he'd finally "[run] out of the energy required to cover for her."

"I'm reading stories about her husband getting a vasectomy, and I'm sitting there waiting to see how she managed to make this one my fault," he said.

Tur's failure to include Olbermann seemed to pick at an old wound, since he also took a moment to slam her for barely mentioning him in her book, 2017's Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History. "

"When Katie's first book came out, she reduced our entire history to a throwaway anecdote defending Kellyanne Conway," he fumed. "The story described me as somebody she had dated briefly in her twenties." Tur also, unforgivably, did not name him in the acknowledgements.

Apparently Keith's been on an "I'm still sexually desirable!" jag for the last half year, as he's been gracelessly dishing that he briefly dated Krysten Sinema. Before she dumped him.

I wonder if Keith Olbermann is what turned her "bisexual."

So: Confirmed. He's insane.

And also: An incel.
