Howard's new column is called "The Anti-Bush Anchor." Since Keith constantly questions Bush and his administration, Kurtz labels him as being "disrespectful." Maybe Olbermann is just trying to hold people accountable?
I think it does help Keith because he gets some PR, but I thought a seasoned journalist like Kurtz could get a simple fact correct in his piece like this:

"Liberal bloggers have been praising Olbermann, but one online critic, Robert Cox, recently launched a new site, Olbermann Watch..."

This site was founded in Nov, 2004, almost a year and a half ago-hardly a recent event. Also, Kurtz posted about this website back on March, 19th 2005 so how could he forget. Why doesn't he archive his columns either?

I'll let FDL take it from here as Jane documents the rest.
