How is this gossip and not news? A news anchor openly critical of the administration ends up with an envelope full of suspicious white powder delivered to his home and that’s not news?
What the fuck, America?
Also, how nice of the New York Post to treat the incident as if it were just obvious foolishness. That will be a comfort to the people who’ve died this very way, I’m sure. We can’t bring hair gel on an airplane even though no one has ever made a hair gel bomb and that’s reasonable, but someone mails Olbermann white powder and he insists on going to the emergency room and he’s a baby, even though five people died and seventeen others got sick from anthrax five years ago, and one of the letters even went to the New York Post.
If anyone might understand Olbermann’s jumpiness, you think it’d be them.
Tonight Keith said that the FBI asked that the media not report the incident so as to not tip off the perpetrator about how much the FBI knows and whether the perpetrator had reached his intended target(s).
So, that’s why no one else reported it.
