Keith Olbermann’s encounter with domestic terrorism hasn’t gotten much media attention, but it’s still a serious matter. He received an envelope, purportedly containing anthrax, at his home; a note stated that it was retaliation for his anti-Bush commentary. Editor & Publisher notes that Rupert Murdoch’s rag the NY Post mocked Olbermann for reporting the incident to police and taking sensible precautions.
Bill O’Reilly lies about being a target of al Qaeda, and the media are silent; Olbermann is actually targeted by terrorists, and the media are again silent. How’s that for bias?
