Beware Fake Olbermanns Bearing Emails…

The Upshot’s Michael Calderone writes about a prank on a journalist made apparently by or someone connected to Tucker Carlson…

Tucker Carlson boasted last July that his site, The Daily Caller, bought the domain name for liberal MSNBC host Keith Olbermann. Carlson, a conservative journalist and pundit, even said he would start using the email address keith@keitholbermann.com as a gag.

So it was interesting to see that Olbermann allegedly sent some angry emails to the Philadelphia Daily News’ Stu Bykofsky using the email address keith@keitholbermann.com.

Bykofsky claimed the exchange was “guaranteed 100% for real.”And he later confirmed to Jim Romenesko that he was writing to keith@keitholbermann.com

Although emails were indeed sent back and forth, it wasn’t Olbermann on the other end.

    Who would be stupid enough to think keith@keitholbermann.com is actually Keith Olbermann. The guy isn’t that narcissistic, is he?

  2. Why do I get the feeling that there are privacy regulations being violated here? Maybe Carlson filed a name change at the court house.

  4. Tucker Carlson? Think? Shirley you jest?
