Keith "I don't answer to anyone" Olbermann Forced To Issue Apology For Emails

I don't think these emails require apologizing for. Olbermann gets baited, and he's immature enough to enjoy the partisan sniping. Frankly, it was a good thing that one guy in the media (well, sort of the media, MSNBC) was willing to correspond with his critics, even in such a childish manner. That won't be happening anymore, at least not for a while.

I'm also not sure about the propriety of sharing someone's emails. Then again, I did it, too.

Anyway, here's Keith's emails, which are not polite. In fairness, he was baited by someone who said Zarqawi was his "hero," and the truth stings, provoking a hot reaction.

But I'm just so amused that Keith Olbermann -- last seen announcing "I don't answer to anybody" -- apparently does answer to his higher-ups after all.

"I apologize to anyone who might take offense at my part of this correspondence. It goes without saying that I should not have replied to these abusive and hateful E-mails, but I wonder how many of us could receive literally hundreds of them questioning our patriotism, religion and ethnic origin, without succumbing to the natural wish to confront such hate?"

Lloyd Grove snarks that Olbermann's method of "confronting hate" seems to consist of telling people to "Go f--k your mother" and "Kill yourself."

Tough talk... but when former colleague, now boss, Dan Abrams tells him to jump, he asks "How high? And would you like a cocoa-butter handjob?"
