The New York Daily News’ Bob Raissman writes about an incident on the radio where both Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick called the owner of the Carolina Hurricanes names…
At one point in their critique, Patrick called Karmanos a “scumbag.” Shortly after that tasteless reference, Olbermann called Karmanos a “douchebag.”
I don’t know if Karmanos is aware of these over-the-top characterizations, which have absolutely no place on a sportstalk radio show airing early in the afternoon, but ESPN suits heard what Olbermann and Patrick said and were not amused.
“It’s not our policy to take cheap shots or resort to name calling,” said Rob Tobias, an ESPN spokesman. “And to that end, we will be handling this matter internally with both Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann.”
