Keith Olbermann, who is in a standoff with Current TV, is also in a fight with a newspaper reporter, according to the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
Olbermann lambasted New York Times reporter Brian Stelter for his coverage of Olbermann’s work at Current, the story reports.
Olbermann took to Twitter to harangue Stelter for what he claims was an attempt to threaten him into commenting on the record, the story says. According to Olbermann’s Twitter feed, the TV host wrote comments such as, "I’m sorry, but in denying he tried to threaten me into commenting on the record, @BrianStelter of NY Times is flat out lying."
Olbermann also called Stelter’s writing, "unsupervised pseudo-journalism by kids," with the article pointing out that Olbermann, at 52, is twice as old as Stelter.
As previously reported, Olbermann sat out coverage of the Iowa caucus amid tensions between the host and management at Current TV and lawyers for both sides were negotiating Olbermann’s role at the network.
