What’s lamer than Rachel Maddow repeating a lame talking point put out by her network that is then thoroughly debunked by Johnny Dollar?
Keith Olbermann repeating the exact same talking point, after Johnny Dollar made Rachel Maddow look like a hypocritical hack.
That’s right, if you look at the second video, here, at right about the 1:30 mark, he said that the reason why he didn’t disclose his donations was because he felt that if he disclosed those donations then his followers would have donated, too: “and then suddenly I am [perceived as] fundraising for them passive-aggressively and suddenly we’re accidentally Fox.”
Oh and for bonus points, did Keith Olbermann allow fundraising on his show? Well, watch the Johnny Dollar video, here, and start watching at about the 2:40 for your answer.
Myself, I can’t watch any more of Olbermann tonight. I just can’t ingest that much smug. It’s bad for my lungs.
