New York Post Goes After Olbermann

Filed under: media, politics — Tags: , — codesmithy @ 9:16 am

The Rupert Murdoch owned New York Post ran a story about Keith Olbermann’s personal corporation, Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc. owing $2,269.50 in back taxes.  This is part of a larger feud between Olbermann and O’Reilly which the Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz has documented.

The “story” itself is largely a string of ad hominem attacks.  However tasteless, and petty that may be, where the piece crosses the line is by listing where Olbermann lives down to his apartment number.  Olbermann already chastised Mike Stark for resorting the tactics that the New York Post employs and tacitly enables.  Is there really no low Murdoch-owned media will not stoop to?
