NYPost: "Olbermann is a wuss because he feared for his life"

From Crooks and Liars: Olbermann death threat powered letter made fun of by Murdoch’s NY Post
What would the conservative media be saying if Limbaugh was sent a letter like this? The NY Post: "POWDER PUFF SPOOKS KEITH"
Keith Olbermann flipped out when he opened his home mail yesterday. The acerbic host of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" was terrified when he opened a suspicious-looking letter with a California postmark and a batch of white powder poured out. A note inside warned Olbermann, who’s a frequent critic of President Bush’s policies, that it was payback for some of his on-air shtick. The caustic commentator panicked and frantically called 911 at about 12:30 a.m., sources told The Post’s Philip Messing. An NYPD HazMat unit rushed to Olbermann’s pad on Central Park South, but preliminary tests indicated the substance was harmless soap powder. However, that wasn’t enough to satisfy Olbermann, who insisted on a checkup. He asked to be taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, where doctors looked him over and sent him home. Whether they gave him a lollipop on the way out isn’t known. Olbermann had no comment.

The Post, for those unaware, is owned by right-wing conglom-o-crat Rupert Murdoch, owner of Faux News. And it shows, too, in garbage like this. If this letter were sent to some right-wing blowhard like Pigman Limpdick or Parrot-Boy Hannity, it'd be front-page news getting coverage on every network and in every newspaper. But because it happened to Keith Olbermann, someone who opens his mouth and unleashes a deluge of utter fucking truth, they turn it into a smear campaign and a massive joke.

Now that this story has broken, I'm waiting to hear what Olbermann has to say on it. I bet there's gonna be some sore asses at the Post real soon!

Oh, and if you'd like to talk some sense into the cock who decided to make fun of a man who thought he might be in danger, here's her address: paula.froelich@nypost.com. Make sure to show that you've got more of a spine than her - be civil if you speak up.


UPDATE, 9/28/2006 11:39: Olbermann responds to the lying bitch at the Post.
