Olbermann death threat powered letter made fun of by Murdochs NY Post
Posted on Crooks and Liars By: John Amato @ 11:05 AM - PDT
What would the conservative media be saying if Limbaugh was sent a letter like this? The NY Post: "POWDER PUFF SPOOKS KEITH"

Keith Olbermann flipped out when he opened his home mail yesterday. The acerbic host of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" was terrified when he opened a suspicious-looking letter with a California postmark and a batch of white powder poured out. A note inside warned Olbermann, whos a frequent critic of President Bushs policies, that it was payback for some of his on-air shtick. The caustic commentator panicked and frantically called 911 at about 12:30 a.m., sources told The Posts Philip Messing. An NYPD HazMat unit rushed to Olbermanns pad on Central Park South, but preliminary tests indicated the substance was harmless soap powder. However, that wasnt enough to satisfy Olbermann, who insisted on a checkup. He asked to be taken to St. Lukes Hospital, where doctors looked him over and sent him home. Whether they gave him a lollipop on the way out isnt known. Olbermann had no comment.

edit: to clarify John Amato is NOT the NY Post reporter. The author was Paula Froelich. C&L provided this at the end of their story:
Heres a public email if you want to send Paula your thoughts paula.froelich@nypost.com (please show more class than Paula)
