Andrew Malcolm ‘Throws FBLA a Bone’

6a00d8341c630a53ef01157257c6cd970b-500wi.jpgLA Times’ Andrew Malcolm is in a feud with MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann. We tried to reach Malcolm for comment and instead just posted about him and waited for his obligatory Google Alert to kick in.

He left a comment on our post:

I am even more honored to be in highly-read FishBowlLA than mere 3d place in little-viewed WPITW. Sorry for non-response Friday, worst day of week and w/nrly 33,000 Twitter followers hard to keep up w/DMs. Thanks again for this great honor, Tina. Can die in peace now.
Andrew Malcolm, Top of the Ticket, Religious FishBowl reader

We scanned the comment for sarcasm, the first time around was inconclusive. Second time it was cleared. (Note: the math thing is for Malcolm who’s clearly a numbers dude.)

Also he sent us this email:

Left comment on your delightful malcolm vs olberrmann item but apologizing again for not responding on Friday.

w/so many twitter followers its hard to read all the DMs and keep up.

Come on! You think we are swayed by this obvious attempt at flattery? Really? Do you think we melt at the first breath of a kind word? Are we just going to kowtow and choose sides as to who’s cooler to us?!

Oh hell yeah.

Go Andrew!
