The New York Post’s Page Six Sleazeballs Vs. Keith Olbermann

It’s hard to say why, perhaps because he hasn’t been paying them enough bribe money[1], but Page Six at the New York Post has apparently got some sort of major beef with Keith Olbermann.

First, they actually mocked Olbermann late last month for getting checked out by a doctor after he received white powder in the mail[2]. Now, believe it or not, they’ve sunk even lower by posting seedy allegations about an “unsatisfying one-night stand:”[3]

“A BROWN-haired beauty who claims she had an unsatisfying one-night stand with Keith Olbermann is getting her sweet revenge – she’s launched a blog to warn other women about the acerbic MSNBC commentator’s boorish bedroom habits.

… A 30-something office worker of Caribbean descent, KarmaBites1 said she struck up an e-mail friendship with Olbermann, whom she admired, and agreed to fly to New York to meet him last May. She says he came to her hotel room and opened a bottle of Merlot which he “spilled all over.” Then, when “sexual activity began [in] less than an hour,” Olbermann had difficulty. “I pretended he knew what he was doing,” the embittered blogger writes. “I adored the guy. I didn’t want him to think he was a dud in bed,” so she faked experiencing ecstasy.

…Six days later, she claims, Olbermann e-mailed her to tell her never to contact him again. “I practically begged him to explain what I did wrong. I told him I deserved some kind of explanation for such a dismissal, but I never heard from him again.” She said she’s since heard from six other women who say they had brief sexual relationships with Olbermann.”

To begin with, if your first reaction after having an unsatisfying hook-up with a celebrity is to create a blog to discuss it, you have serious head issues you should probably be working out on a psychologist’s couch. Of course, that’s just me — a Psych Major saying that, so what do I know? A lot actually — get some help, KarmaBites1, because you’re a mess.

But, moving on, why is the New York Post running this trash? Granted, it’s about the loathsome Keith Olbermann — but, I still feel compelled to say something because if the New York Post ran a similar hit piece on someone like Ann Coulter, conservatives would be up in arms.

Now, I will grant you that this is a gossip column, but come on, is this something that should make the news? Just because you can print something doesn’t mean you should. And, “Celebrity has sex with woman. She says it wasn’t that great,” is probably in the realm of material that shouldn’t be “fit to print.”
