The AP’s Beth Harris writes about Keith Olbermann’s appearance at the Television Critics Association meeting today and the subject of Bill O’Reilly came up. Keith also tossed out an accusation at FNC that he better be able to back up…
Olbermann said his phone number has been distributed at Fox and his e-mail hacked into.
“They’re annoying things, and that’s about it. That’s the price you pay,” he said. “Nothing that you do in putting yourself in the public eye is for free. I can live with it.”
Olbermann opened his session by whipping out a mask of O’Reilly - a poke at Fox asking journalists to accept handout photos of TCA news conferences from photographers the network had hired.
“We thought we’d help you out, those of you who needed a good photograph of,” Olbermann said, pausing to hold up O’Reilly’s photo glued to a stick as reporters laughed.
UPDATE: Broadcasting & Cable’s Ben Grossman has the story too…
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann used a Saturday morning breakfast session at the Television Critics Association press tour to fire yet another shot at Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly, holding up an O’Reilly mask while raising his right arm in a Nazi salute to mock his on-air rival.
