UPDATE/CAUTION: This post contains comments which purport to be one of the two email exchanges which were the basis for the Lloyd Grove column linked below. The language contained in the unexpurgated exchange is extremely crude so be forewarned that those who are offended by vulgar language should not read the comments section of this post:
Brian Stelter, known for removing posts to TVNewser that Keith finds objectionable, has rushed to defend his liberal heartthrob once again, this time impunging the integrity of Lloyd Grove for publishing "reader emails" and "gossip".
Isn't that the entire premise of the TVNewser site?
Relying on that old standby, making your point by quoting those who have made your point for you, Brian expresses the following sentiment:
> An e-mailer says: "Let me get this right: Two people keep emailing Keith Olbermann in order to harass him, and then send his equally insulting responses back to Lloyd Grove. And Grove will not reveal the antagonists' names?!?! Way to be balanced."
Apparently, it's OK for TVN's "e-mailer" to remain anonymous while demanding that Grove's "e-mailer" be disclosed. Don't try to follow the logic of this latest TVN post because there is none.
As for the latest installment of Grove v. Olbermann...
We've been hearing about these emails for a few days now and they certainly don't reflect well on Olbermann. Apparently he used the "f-word" a few times. Tsk Tsk.
Here are highlights provided by Grove:
"Given how far you are from knowing your a- from your elbow about my industry, you couldn't be stupider, wronger, or dumber..."
"Go - your mother."
"You 'Americans' still watching that evil f- O'Reilly?"
I'm not sure what the basis is for TVN's "e-mailer" to claim that the intent of the e-mailers were to "harrass" Keith or that the emails were "equally insulting". Have these emails been published somewhere? Or is "e-mailer" actually a literary device that allows Brian to get Keith's message out?
Regardless of Keith's rationale, you really have to question KO's judgement here. Anyone with half a
Brian brain knows that anything you put into an email may end up being public. More so if you are a public figure, responding to people who you don't know, clearly don't like you and have an agenda. I can assure you that KO is hugely steamed about this but instead of lashing out he ought to look in the mirror. Message to Keith: "Why pass out ammuniton to your enemies?"
Based on my own experience with Olbermann, I woud not be surprised if he has been seeking legal advice. He already learned from the infamous Sileo emails that his emails are not "copyrighted" just because he says so (you can copyright an email if you want but "no one" ever does).
