Olbermann WPITW: Talks Ratings, Rips LA Times

In Friday’s WPITW, Keith Olbermann slammed the LA Times and writer Andrew Malcolm. We noted on Friday that the LA Times had issued a correction for its TV schedule which had listed the show “Jackass” in place of “Countdown.” Pretty funny mistake.

But not so hilarious — for Olbermann at least — was a one-line zinger “Top of the Ticket” blogger Malcolm had delivered in his summary of the little incident:

But without this kind of correction, online too, a few thousand people might have tuned into MSNBC, the Obama administration’s favorite cable channel, expecting to see a “Jackass” show, and instead they’d have found Olbermann.

However the president of the College Republicans says Pearlmutter never attended any meetings and is not on the membership roster.

A CNN spokesperson emailed the LAT: “While he attends USC and says that he is a registered Republican, he was inadvertently identified on-screen as a member of the USC College Republicans organization.”

CNN wasn’t the only network with an on-air flub yesterday. Click continued for a graphic misspelling caught by a TVNewser tipster…
