Tucker Carlson Admits to Sending Emails as “Keith Olbermann”

A Philadelphia news web site, Phawker, released a set of emails supposedly from MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann. The emails contained harsh criticism and insults about Olbermann’s boss, MSNBC President Phil Griffin.

In one email, “Olbermann” says that Griffin is “not my boss (thank god), nor is he intellectually qualified to be…I’ll be anchoring on election night 2012, long after Phil Griffin has moved on to a job for which he’s actually qualified, perhaps on QVC.”

In another, “Olbermann” writes that “I could have Phil Griffin fired tomorrow if I felt like it, trust me. And if he keeps yapping about me in public, I may. For the moment, however, keeping Phil around is like having a drunk chimp in the office — more amusing than threatening.”

The truth is that it was actually Fox News’ Tucker Carlson who sent the emails, posing asĀ  Keith Olbermann.

Straight from the horse’s mouth…

On Tuesday night, Yahoo’s Michael Calderone reached Carlson by phone. Carlson confirmed that he had, in fact, sent the emails posing as Olbermann.

“Could you resist?” Carlson said. “It was just too funny. The flesh is weak.”

Apparently, the emails were sent from keith@keitholbermann.com – Tucker Carlson stated that he purchased the domain “keitholbermann.com” in July and that people could email him at that address.

Tucker Carlson & Dana Perino Join Fox News

Former MSNBC conservative political pundit, Tucker Carlson, and White House Press Secretary under George W. Bush, Dana Perino, have both joined Fox News as contributors.

Last year, Carlson’s show on MSNBC was canceled and he has since contributed to The Daily Beast. He was once quoted as saying, “I must say, though, that most of the hate I run across these days seems to be coming from the left.” Asked if he’d follow Hannity and offer to be waterboarded, he responded, “No thanks, though if you ever catch me plotting to blow up buildings in this country, be my guest. I promise I won’t whine about it.”

In 2007, Perino told reporters, “U.S. policy is not to torture — and we do not” as well as this: “Regardless of where we are, we do not torture anybody, but getting information from them is critically important to protecting this country.”

They’ll fit right in…
