Keith Olbermann's Murrow-lite "Special Comments" on his MSNBC show are probably worth mocking. But whatever Page Six thinks is funny about this story is lost on me.
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.
Um… lol? The people who craft Page Six aren't the ones who dip their pens in blood to write the paper's editorials, but maybe they should meet up and explain how this "terrorist threat" stuff really is a big joke. Patch in Bill O'Reilly on that call; he thinks al Qaeda is out to kill him, but News Corp's flagship TV host has, as yet, gone un-lampooned by News Corp's flagship newspaper.
