Keith Olbermann Denies This One Particular Instance of Jackassery!
Remember when we posted that thing about an hour ago, about aCityFile report claiming Keith Olbermann missed his show for three nights because of some Rachel Maddow/Ben Affleck business? MSNBC just sent a DENIAL to your Wonkette, including a Prepared Statement from the teevee host. You will surely want to read it.
Hey there- The Cityfile people, charmingly, posted the story today 4 minutes after they left me a message asking for comment. Here's a statement from Keith-- his days off in April were a week after his mother passed away.
"That was my first opportunity to take even a long weekend to mourn my mother's death and deal with the many sad logistics subsequent to her sudden passing. The source of this story is a liar and those who spread it without seeking confirmation or refutation are beneath contempt."
Whoo hoo, does this mean Wonkette is now "beneath contempt" in Keith Olbermann's mind? Self-important much?
We now await a statement from Jennifer Garner.
