IF YOU CRITICIZE THE PRESIDENT, BEST TO DO IT GENTLY & QUIETLY
MSNBC loudmouth 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.(Emphasis added). What "interests" me here isn't the horrible attempt at cheap laughs or the gossipy tone. Afterall, it's Page Six. Instead, I'm drawn to the fact that someone who criticizes the President is therefore deemed an acerbic loudmouth engaging in shtick.
Page Six or not, you'd hope the press/media would stick together.
