Keith Olbermann: New CNN Analyst John Miller A ‘Cop Jock-Sniffer’

“And his act was the same in 1978 as it is in 2022. He was a cop jock-sniffer.”

Earlier this week, new CNN President Chris Licht made his first on-air talent hirings, naming former NYPD spokesman and CBS News correspondent John Miller as the network’s Chief Law Enforcement and Intelligence Analyst. During his Countdown with Keith Olbermann podcast Thursday, the host said Miller’s hiring should “set your hair on fire”.

“I have known this John Miller, who Chris Licht just hired as CNN’s new Chief Law Enforcement and Intelligence Analyst for 44 years. He has had the kind of career you probably think of if you ever think of my career,” Olbermann said before listing off Miller’s stops during his media career.

“When he was starting as a reporter at Channel 5 in New York — just as we were all converting to color TV — I was an intern on the assignment desk. I swear, I’ve known him since 1978. I actually made phone calls for John Miller on a couple of his stories in 1978, when I didn’t need to shave more than once a week. And his act was the same in 1978 as it is in 2022. He was a cop jock-sniffer. He was the teenage kid at home in New Jersey with the police scanner radios who would then show up at the crime scene.”

Olbermann then detailed controversy surrounding Miller, including his involvement in the skepticism from the NYPD about a rape victim in 1994, saying she wanted to gain publicity for a gay and lesbian rally. Miller was later forced to apologize. He also is accused of lying to New York City Council in March of this year after saying there is no evidence the NYPD spied on Muslim communities in the city after 9/11.

“John Miller — Chris Licht’s first hire — CNN’s new Chief Law Enforcement and Intelligence Analyst and cop apologist was so wrong, so offensive, so Islamophobic that the Mayor of New York Eric Adams, himself an ex-cop, contradicted John Miller publicly and apologized and said ‘What we did was wrong’.”

Olbermann’s comments on Miller came after saying he thought Licht “ate glue” while the pair worked together at MSNBC.

After Twitter brought back hip-hop star Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, it didn’t take long for the social platform to suspend his account again after an anti-Semitic rant on Thursday. 

“I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence,” Twitter owner Elon Musk tweeted, announcing the suspension. “Account will be suspended.”

CNN media reporter Oliver Darcy appeared on the network to state that West’s remarks are the latest on Twitter, which has seen a rise in hate speech on the media outlet.

“It’s also something these rants from him come as we’re seeing a sharp rise in hate speech on Twitter, and the ADL has said it’s a troubling trend that really mimics the broader growth in antisemitism across the country,” Darcy said.

Darcy also stated that the Republican Party and conservative media has a hand in West’s spiral for trying to clean him up and prop him to the base.

“It’s also a stunning indictment for the Republican Party,” Darcy added. “You remember that last week he dined with former President Donald Trump and people like Tucker Carlson, who cleaned up his antisemitic remarks earlier, when he did an interview with him, they vouched for him in the Republican Party. They hyped him up to the conservative base.”

InfoWars founder and host Alex Jones has filed for personal bankruptcy.

Jones has been ordered to pay nearly $1.5 billion to the families of victims from the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre after he repeatedly claimed the event was a hoax.

Court records indicated Jones filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Houston. The filing indicates he has $1 billion to $10 billion in liabilities.

Jones has laughed at the dollar amount awarded to the families. He has claimed he has less than $2 million in assets and will never be able to pay the awarded total. During the trial that resulted in him being ordered to pay damages, Jones was accused of concealing millions of dollars in assets to avoid having to pay.

“Since the Sandy Hook Families filed their lawsuits, the Debtor has systematically transferred millions of dollars to Alex Jones and his relatives and insider entities,” a filing from the victims claimed.
