Gawker is still on Keith Olbermann's Ego's Enemies List

Gawker is still on Keith Olbermann's Ego's Enemies List. But at least they name-check the Ego here.
Sure, it was for a good cause, but the fact that Olbermann believed that an hour-long monologue worthy of Fidel Castro was something that people wanted or needed to see, and that his bosses actually let him get away with it, brought to mind Ben Affleck's flawless SNL caricature of Olbermann's mammoth self-regard. It seemed at times last night that he actually took some pointers from Affleck's performance — Olbermann's ego is expansive enough to take such jabs as loving tribute, and incorporate them into his self-image like some ravenous blob that from a sci-fi movie.
Bosses at MSNBC? I got news for you Gawker, Keith Olbermann runs owns MSNBC. If the Ego wants to do something dammit, he does it. And The Ego isn't sure but he thinks Gawker just accused him of devouring Ben Affleck or something. Jennifer Garner, oh yeah, The Ego would devour that but Affleck? No.

If you really want to change the course of the health care debate and change minds, Keith—hell, if you even just want to inform people about the world around them, like your sainted Edward R. Murrow, now and again—try pointing the camera at something other than yourself. And let us know when you conquer death.
But my public demands that Gawker. They want Keith Olbermann 24/7--as it should be.

I got this from the Think Progress website, which attributes TVNewser:

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann responds to TVNewser, “Having had an actual stalker myself, I think the Congresswoman needs to apologize to women (and men) whose lives are blighted and ruined by such terror and threat. Not even in the mildest of senses – of journalists whose aggressiveness might verge colloquially into ’stalking’ – is she anywhere close to being such a victim.”


Keith Olbermann had a stalker??? Is that the same "stalker" he willing emailed and bedded. Didn't he "stalk" this female fan? Also, didn't he "stalk" Rebecca Lobo back in the day? Pot meet kettle.

The man just can not help himself make a story about himself.

Keith Olbermann's Ego said...

"Stalker" is the nick-name The Ego lovingly gives to three groups of women:

1. Ex-girlfriends and one-night stands (self-explanatory on both counts)

and

2. The women over the age of 25 who have a crush on The Ego (as they should)

and

3. The fat and/or ugly ones.

You know the type: the ones who delude themselves into thinking The Ego would be interested in "mature, intelligent" women like themselves? Ha ha. The ego is not interested in mature or intelligent. That's usually just code for "ugly as hell".

The Ego has news for the "mature, intelligent" ones, the Ego is not interested. And conversation in the sack? Totally unnecessary and not needed.

So remember, ladies, if (and only if) you're attractive and wiling and between the ages of 18-25, The Ego is interested in you. If you don't meet the Ego's exacting standards, please don't waste The Ego's time or your own. But please continue to watch Countdown where you can worship The Ego from afar (and far away is where the Ego wants the old, ugly, fat, and pathetic ones).

Marcia x3:
He mentioned that on his show, and I thought at first he was referring to the guy who supposedly sent him anthrax. Then I remembered he calls that guy a "domestic terrorist", not a stalker. Maybe he's confusing himself with Letterman again.

He had a stalker during his ESPN days.

Or so he claims.

marinara said...

Keith's stalker was some mentally ill woman who kept sending him gifts and calling him at all hours, even at his desk at ESPN! She somehow kept getting his phone number(s). I remember an interview he did where he talked about this. KarmaBites never stalked him.

Gawker is just being deliberately obtuse, Keith's Ego. You weren't anything like Ben Affleck's portrayal of you. In fact, ever since that SNL skit, you've really toned it down so people won't compare you to it. It's cool, though, no one has noticed that you've changed your behavior because of it.

It was not a stalker, It was the tax collector trying to get the back taxes that Keith owes.

Keith+Jovanna2028! said...

Funny, after hearing that I had to come online and read the penal code for new york state, juuust to make sure I'm not a stalker, but the ego has reassured me of this: I'm just a geeky 18 yr old fan girl. Thanks, Ego!

justme said...

Ummm, Ego-have you looked at your girlfriend lately?

marinara said...

Keith's Ego! Rachel is stealing your thunder! Do something!

Does your employer no you blog under the name of a misogynist pedohile? Sure they will love what your idol said tonight, 10/13/09, about a minority woman. I would shut this blog down if I were you and idiolizing someone that soon maybe saying this about one of your daughter's or hunting for your daughter like he did Tur's daughter. That is if you are unlike your idiol and man enough to make a child.

Keith Olbermann's Ego said...

It's the funniest thing Anon. Despite your repeated threats against both The Ego and the Ego's Ego, we both seem to be very gainfully employed. And last time I checked, while very young, Katy Tur was over 21 when she took up with The Ego so I'm quite frankly at a loss to explain your continued obsession with pedophilia and child molestation and your repeated claims that is somethng The Ego is into. You must have him confused with some GOP senator or congressmen. By the way, it's the fifth anniversary of O'Reilly's sexual harassment suit. So if you want to talk about predators and sexual perverts, I believe all discussions should begin and end with that great GOP spokesperv, Bill O'Reilly. Now back off to the sewer where your ilk lives and mouth-breathes.

A Mind is a Terrible Thing To Waste said...

Anon, I think you need to spend less time reading blogs and obsessing over all things Olbermann related. Maybe it's just the grammarian in me, but I can't let this go. For the sake of educated people everywhere, here are just some of the errors in your post: It's know, not no; idolizing, not idiolizing, pedophile, not pedohile, and idol, not idiol. Your ignorance is not surprising in a Republican bully but still, use spell check next time.

Keith Olbermann's Ego said...

I'd be happy if someone would invent "think check" for the likes of my not-so-dear stalker Anon. Happily however he's too stupid to do anyone any real harm and too lazy to do anything other than leave anonymous threats on blogs like this one. I imagine simply trying to figure out how to turn on a computer takes up a good portion of his day.

Anonymous said...

Hi Ego I would check again with your pathetic source that you don't source that Tur was 21 when your boyfriend took up with her. Anyone with an IQ above Bovine inbred knows that little Katy was 17 when your IDOL took up wioth her. You should just remember that there is more than one ANON that know who you are and are forwarding all your posts to your master's.

Keith Olbermann's Ego said...

Apparently our favorite troll has a time machine that he has used to turn back time so Katy was 17 and not the 22 or 23 everyone knows she was when the Ego began to date her. Note that like all right-wing Repubtards, the anonymous (because he's so brave) village idiot has no proof of this, just unproven allegations he believes to be true (because the voices inside his head tell him so).

Jovanna said...

Anon(s), who cares? Don't you have something more important to be doing? Like clinging to your guns? I'm sure you're late for a town hall somewhere you can be disrupting.

Greyfawn said...

Uh-oh. Maybe Anon is a former President of the US, who says that Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann are sick puppies.

marinara said...

Katy was born in 1983 and that is a fact. When she moved in with The Ego in 2006, she was 23. Unless she moved in before her birthday, of course. Then she was 22.

Marcia x3 said...

Didn't Keith work in LA in the late 80's early 90's and was friends with Bob & Marika Tur, thus he knew Katy since she was a child, pre-teen, teen. Not sayin' anything nefarious happened...but it does have that skeevy Woody Allen/Soon Li kind of feel to it.

Greyfawn said...

Marcia x3 -- I think you might be right. I remember reading somewhere (and I think it was in one of Keith's books, as a matter of fact) that he'd dated his girlfriend for quite some time before they moved in together.
