Olbermann Gets Death Threat - NY Post Laughs

So Keith Olbermann gets a death threat - a fake anthrax letter - and treats it like it might be the real thing, cause he's not a fucking mindreader, and the New York Post laughs their fucking head off.

Did the Post laugh when Congressmen received their anthrax letters?

What is wrong with right wingers? Can we please give them a pill? For god's sake, somebody send these people to behavior modification camp.


September 27, 2006 -- 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. 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.

Don't forget that the tawdry New York Post is the very same tabloid that Condi Rice chose to honor with an exclusive interview after Bill Clinton expressed outrage at the smear tactics of Fox News.

The paper of choice of the Secretary of State.

I'm sure the mafia prefers the Post as well.

Update!!! Via Past Deadline -- "At 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on MSNBC's "Countdown" show tonight, not only will Olbermann be addressing the powder incident; he will also take time to point out how the NY Post (via Page Six) may have interfered with an FBI investigation of terroristic threats with its mocking item."
