Pouty Rupes Klunks Keith
(UK Tabloid slime sans teeth)
Or maybe Rupert can’t stand that Keith Olbermann actually called him for the swine that he is.
Listen to this from the vile New York Post, run by Rupert’s character assassins from the UK (perhaps on the lam, or, perhaps, merely deported for excessive lameness). By the Page Six columnist, whoever or whatever their moniker (craptastic prose EMPHASIZED):

Unemployed, perennially confrontational talking head Keith Olbermann aimlessly wandered around Central Park South earlier this week, seemingly looking for a friend or a purpose.
Our spies snapped unflattering pictures of Olbermann decked out in a giant red pullover and clownishly baggy jeans as he strolled 59th Street near Seventh Avenue, smelling the roses — or, in this case, the horse manure*, allergens and aromas from a nearby food cart.

Spies said dejected Olbermann parked himself on CPS and stared into space for several minutes before slinking off by himself.Keith Olbermann, chillaxing on Central Park South yesterday.Olbermann appeared out of sorts.But in contrast to Wednesday’s schlumpy appearance, he looked ready to take on the world again yesterday, when he declined to speak to The Post outside his Upper East Side pad. A clean-shaven Olbermann, in sunglasses and a blue golf shirt, politely waved at a reporter before quickly walking the other way.* He didn’t return calls from Page Six**, [** Duh!] and his manager, Michael Price, didn’t return e-mails. [ See **]
Olbermann last month was fired from his $10-million-a-year Current TV job, where he hosted “Countdown.” He joined the channel last June after his departure from MSNBC in January 2011. He filed a wrongful termination suit against Current TV seeking $50 million to $70 million, and the network countersued.
Olbermann’s MSNBC protégée, Rachel Maddow, said she couldn’t believe they axed him.
“Totally shocked,” Maddow said. “I did not know it was coming, it was crazy.”
Seriously. This comes from adults? Moreover, from high school graduates? (The literary quality of the prose squeaks for itself.)
Uh, Twenty-three skiddo, daddio (or, in this case, dude-io).
Just the sort of stout lad Rupert’s
talent scouts seek for his newspapers
One wonders if the original copy were written in crayon.
This is Rupert’s version of “journalism”? (No wonder newspapers are dying.)
Kicking a man when he’s down and sending “spies” (isn’t that the little problem you’re having in the UK, Rupes?) to hound a private citizen (unemployed and unable to respond in an equal media forum) is what they call “bad form” in the UK, where Rupert tried to kill his mother tongue, and considered the sign of a bully and a pussy here in the US (where we ceased, as Shaw noted, using it years ago).
Pulling the wings off a fly. Kicking a cripple. Stealing candy from a baby just to watch it cry.
Ailes and Murdoch,
joined at the waste
Rupert Murdoch remains the worst thing to hit the USA since mildew.
