Uh, oh. Looks like respect is missing between MSNBC’s Keith Oldermann and Rita Cosby.
Reports Lloyd Grove in The New York Daily News:
Now that Dan Abrams has given up his MSNBC show to run the third-place cable news outlet, he might want to focus on the rising tensions between two of his prime-time personalities: Keith Olbermann and Rita Cosby.
Olbermann, whose "Countdown With Keith Olbermann" airs weeknights at 8, apparently has precious little respect for Cosby, whose "Rita Cosby: Live & Direct" airs at 10 p.m.
"Rita’s nice," Olbermann wrote to a fan from his MSNBC E-mail account, "but dumber than a suitcase of rocks." Yesterday Cosby retorted: "Keith got it wrong. I’m not that nice."
But a Cosby intimate gasped when informed of Olbermann’s E-mail. "That’s incredibly disappointing," he said.
