The ever-vigilant Tim Graham at Newsbusters.org reports that Keith Olbermann appeared on Bob Kur's radio show on WTWP (Washington, DC) with Howard Kurtz and took the opportunity to launch a viscious and unwarranted attack on OlbermannWatch and, in particular, yours truly. Upon learning that Keith doesn't like me, I sobbed uncontrollably for a good part of the day and was largely unconsolable.
Graham reports that when Kur, formerly of NBC News, asked KO about Kurtz's Monday Olbermann profile...
Olbermann told Kurtz he had no problem with the story, but then said there was one thing he didn't like: the conservative Olbermann critic in the piece, Robert Cox and crew at Olbermann Watch, which he protested is "a site created to mock me."...He claimed that when a commenter went after Cox, Cox put up "information of a personal nature" up against him, so "he's not a reliable observer of my work."
Let me see if have this right. Keith gets this wonderful PR boost courtesy of Kurtz column which includes not only the print version going out to three-quarters of a million readers but also a companion version in Kurtz psuedo-blog, Media Notes on washingtonpost.com plus a joint appearance with Kurtz on WaPo's new DC radio station and multiple mentions during Kurtz' weekly online chat session and all he can think to do is to go on WaPo radio to slam Kurtz for citing ONE critic in the entire piece? Talk about gratitude! No wonder Keith has developed so many "strong friendships" with former co-workers and colleagues!
It is easy to understand Keith's indignation. After all, according to Keith, we here at OlbermannWatch have engaged in "MOCKERY", the lowest, foulest form of criticism known to man. A sense of humor so debauched that Keith "Falafel Factor" Olbermann shudders to even mention the word. In fact, he might even crown me "Worst Person in the World" - if Barbara Bush is on vacation this week!
Apparently Keith is also prepared to open a can of worms he is going to regret opening with regard to a certain TV news producer and the loony lefty who tried to "blackmail" me into shutting down OlbermannWatch.
Note to KO: "Unreliable observer"? "Information of a personal nature"?
Keith, you REALLY want to go there? Fine.
