Like others, I took note of what appeared to be an accusation that Fox News had hacked Keith Olbermann's email in Beth Harris's article on KO's comments in Pasadena yesterday about his email being hacked and somehow that being tied to Fox News. I was hesistant to post on this line until I had a chance to check into further. I emailed Harris and checked around with my sources. I have yet to hear back from the AP but a source provided this transcript of Olby's comments:
I'm always the guy who doesn't keep his head down and bangs into walls and overheads and such. I never worry about the consequences of it. ... There have been some abuses. There have been -- my e-mails have been hacked into. My phone number has been distributed at Fox. I mean, there have been some really kind of invasive things, but if you sit down and you talk about it, well, they're annoying things, and that's about it.
It's pretty clear KO was NOT saying that someone from Fox News hacked into his e-mail account. I'm still not clear what it means that his phone number was distributed at Fox and I'd be fascinated to know how Olby would know this or whether he can back it up.
As to the hacked email account - is this yet another trail balloon floated in some vain hope of distancing himself from OlbyEmailGate? Is Keith now saying he did not write the "vituperative" emails for which he later apologized? Was the Cosby/suitecase full of rocks crack a set up from a maleavolent hacker? Or is this all just one more stop on the KO Oblivion Express?
Ed. Note: I changed the time stamp on this post so that the Olbermann Nazi Salute story would be at the top of the page as we begin a new week - that is THE story for now and I liked how that Olby Salute photo looked at the top of the page.
