WH press secy namechecks Keith in daily briefing

Postby Marie » Wed May 30, 2018 3:17 pm

LOL, Keith, your stock just went up.

Twitter timeline: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&ver ... n&src=typd

Be interesting to see if this ends NBC's tacit gag rule on mentioning him.

10th anniv of Tim Russert's death

Postby Marie » Wed Jun 13, 2018 4:26 pm

This was a huge deal: Russert was a strong Keith booster at the network and Keith never forgot. In the end it fell to him to report Russert's passing in real time.

VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLVhzUbM9x8

"MSNBC's Keith Olbermann's performance following Russert's death might have been his finest moment in broadcasting. Honest, at times heartwrenching, Olbermann weaved his way through guest after guest who spoke about Russert's career and life. Often, he lost his composure, but never his professionalism." -Sposts Illustrated writer Richard Deitsch

Keith's formal tribute, and one of the interviews to which Deitsch referred, are here:


This morning he recalled the day in a tweet, and a reader added a touching detail from the memorial which took place 5 days later:

Hawaii Magazine documented the rainbow and the featured rendition of "Over the Rainbow" in an article, here: https://www.hawaiimagazine.com/blogs/ha ... rt_funeral

I managed to get a screengrab during MSNBC's coverage:

:grin: Fun thread, full of SportsCenter catchphrases --

Jeff Greenfield Verified account @greenfield64: With his return, has Keith Olbermann been hired more by ESPN than Billy Maftin was by the New York Yankees?

Keith Olbermann adds: Belatedly: yes. Six (Billy, five). Plus Billy was never hired by Jeff Greenfield (I was; Hi Jeff!)
