Tucker Carlson—Buyer of KeithOlbermann.com —on Former Colleague Keith: ‘He’s despised at MSNBC. He’s the most disliked person in the building’

Though Tucker Carlson claims no personal ill-will toward Keith Olbermann, he sure is reveling in the cyber-battle he picked with the MSNBC anchor—by nailing down the rights to KeithOlbermann.com.

Interviewed on BlogTalkRadio’s Mediaite, the conservative icon explains why he made such an acquisition, and what his site, The Daily Caller—which launched in January as a right-wing answer to The Huffington Post—plans to do with it.

That's not amusing?" Tucker (above) says of doling out KeithOlbermann.com email addresses to his readers. "Of course it is!"

“It evolved over the last six months. We started reviewing Countdown [with Keith Olbermann] every Friday,” Tucker, who formerly worked for MSNBC and CNN—and is now a paid contributor for Fox News Channel—tells host Steve Krakauer of the impetus for buying the domain.

“A writer, called Ruth Graham, in New York, has been tasked with watching every minute of every show of Countdown. She now has a facial twitch, actually, from it. And on the basis of that, writes a Friday column.

“We started running fluffy pieces on Keith Olbermann—crying on the air or whatever; pieces of interest to Keith Olbermann watchers—and we decided Continue reading

George Clooney’s Journo Dad Down on MSNBC and Fox News Channel

Nick Clooney is no fan of cable news – from either end of the political spectrum.

CAPTION:

“Any information source that comes to you with a point of view cannot be news,” Nick (above) tells us.

The one-time local-market anchorman, who’s better known these days as George Clooney’s dad, believes that bottom-rated MSNBC and top- rated Fox News Channel are breeding a nation of nefarious citizens.

“MSNBC in its primetime is not news. Fox, generally speaking – in its entire 24-hour cycle – is not news,” he tells Politico host Patick Gavin.

“Those who watch only MSNBC in its primetime, or only Fox, will only be feeding their own biases. They don’t want to hear anything that contradicts their own world view,” adds Nick, who in 2004 made an unsuccessful bid for the U.S. House of Representatives.

“And that’s problematic, because if everybody has boutique news, then we have…300 million ignorant people. That’s too bad, because ignorant people do bad things.”

Nick also chats about his superstar son.

 CAPTION: With son George (right) at the Newseum in Washington in January.

Good news? Good luck! With son George at the Newseum in Washington in January.

“What are the chances that we might get the Clooneys to perm- anently settle down in D.C.?” asks Patrick.

“That’s very nice of you to say, but George is too much of a stormy petrol. He’s going to be all over the map. He’s going to be everywhere, trying to do what he can with regard to Darfur.

“In my case, I’m old and I’m a Kentuckian so you’ll find me never too far from my bourbon.”
