The New York Daily News is reporting that a much anticipated fundraiser for People for the American Way event, scheduled for tomorrow night at New York University, has been canceled. As it broke during the OlbyWatch hiatus, some readers might not have known that Keith Olbermann had agreed to participate in a $150 a head fundraiser for the People for the American Way. KO was scheduled to host a Q&A session with former CIA operative Valerie Plame.
...the blond spy has nixed her Q&A with MSNBC's Keith Olbermann at the Tisch Auditorium - and it's not the CIA who's muzzling her, but the publisher of her book "Fair Game," sources claim.
"From our perspective, the book is in progress and is expected to be published in the near future," Simon & Schuster spokesman Adam Rothberg told us. "It has always been a known fact, as a former employee, that [her] book would be subject to a review" by the CIA. "I think everybody agrees a better time to do the event would be closer to when the book comes out."
But a source tells us, "She was bullied by Simon & Schuster not to appear, since her editors want to maximize the publicity" for when the memoir hits bookstores.
All information related to the event has now been purged from the PFAW web site and there is no announcement regarding refunds or a postponement. A voicemail left for Kelly Simon, PFAW event organizer, went unanswered. We will continue to check back with PFAW and publish any updates here.
NBC Universal had previously refused comment on why one it agreed to allow one of its leading news anchors to host a political fundraiser for a far-left advocacy group. As long-time OlbyWatch readers will surely recall Keith has repeatedly claimed that he is apolitical, does not even vote and is not liberal - and that he is a "journalist".
