As we all know, Tucker Carlson owns keitholbermann.com, because Tucker Carlson likes to pretend he’s still a teevee pundit when he’s not pretending he’s a poor-man’s Dan Abrams, who’s a poor-man’s Nick Denton. What you may not know is that Tucker has set up an e-mail account, firstname.lastname@example.org, at this URL, so that Tucker can send out long messages to small-time local news reporters to try to trick them into thinking Keith Olbermann is chatting with them. Cool! Wait until the kids at the playground hear about this funny goof their friend Tucker is playing on the media!
So it was interesting to see that Olbermann allegedly sent some angry emails to the Philadelphia Daily News’ Stu Bykofsky using the email address email@example.com.
Phawker.com, which published the exchange, claimed it was “guaranteed 100% for real.”And Bykofsky later confirmed to media industry watcher Jim Romenesko that he was writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, which he believed to be Olbermann.
“This is Howie Do It!” Tucker Carlson is going to spend the last of his trust fund to buy a plane ticket to Philadelphia to throw water balloons at this random Bykofsky fellow.
Carlson, reached by phone Tuesday night, confirmed he impersonated Olbermann in the email responses to Bykofsky.
“Could you resist?” Carlson said. “It was just too funny. The flesh is weak.”
Is that what Tucker said when he bashed in that old homo’s head in a bathroom stall that one time?
“The DC” just gets more impressive by the day. They’re almost up to Politico‘s standards! [Yahoo]
