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.

  1. What a jerk. This guy needs some serious counseling or medication. I hope it doesn’t set a new tone for inane jokes on people like this.

    Sooooooooooo……………..Olbermann gets shitcanned for contributing a few Ks to a democrat but Tucker Carlson impersonates somebody, possibly stirring up a scandal and yet he doesnt get shitcanned? Gotta love the morality over at Fox

    Tucker get your persciptions filled and lay off the fish scale you dingleling.

  4. About time someone took on Olbermann as he is such a jerk and I often wonder how he lives with himself. Could be self pity on his part. Keep up the good work Tucker as you have my support.
