Olbermann vs Malkin

Keith Olberman found himself the subject of a Michelle Malkin fabrication. (Click the link and scroll down to read the whole thing.)

For a moment there I thought I owed Michelle Malkin an apology.

Very few people who find themselves criticized on television, or even critically characterized, go out and make the criticism sound worse than it was. Evidently, judging by the fact that the same e-mail appeared a few hundred times in our Countdown inbox today (not similar e-mails; the identical one, with different return addresses), Ms. Malkin is one of the very few.

"How dare you call this woman an idiot?"

That's apparently what she said, while appearing on Rush Limbaugh's Entertainment Radio Program today. She certainly wrote it on her blog.

Funniest darn thing happened, though. Checked the tape of the show, re-read the blog. I never called Michelle Malkin an "idiot."

Never used the word.

Second time I referenced her, I did say "this woman, Malkin, who made a fool of herself on this network, about an hour ago..."

So that's what you're dealing with here. She's an author or a journalist or something, and she misquoted the insult to herself.
Keith also makes mention of the "Boy in the Bubble" hooha. Lovin' it.
