How Keith Olbermann retracts a worst person in the world.

With a “bit of house keeping”


'Countdown with Keith Olbermann' for Friday, March 20, 2009
”But our winner is Twitter.  I told you this was trouble.  I find out today that I have 13,900 some odd followers on Twitter.  I‘m not on Twitter.  I tried to sign up last summer and abandoned the project.  I found this out when I got a piece of junk e-mail today, at my address, from some outfit trying to barnacle on to the Twitter process.  Though it was my address, it had somebody else‘s name on it, possibly whoever was perpetuating the fraud.  The subject line read “Dan Cooper Media, local Tweet request.”  And the e-mail began, “hi Dan Cooper Media.”

Who is Dan Cooper and why would he be getting spam e-mail about my fake Twitter account?  He is one of the five architects of Fox News.  Despite all this, Twitter will not suspend the phony account in my name.  Just remember, whoever you think you are following on Twitter, might be them and it might not.  Twitter, tonight‘s worst persons in the world. “

”First, two bits of house keeping.  Last month, I told you about a Twitter account that was set up in my name.  I have an update.  It turns out at least one person did start an account in my name, but after learning of one of the fake me‘s, NBC took control of that account.  I also mentioned that I received an email about this account from Twitter that was—Twitter wannabe—that was addressed to Dan Cooper Media.  Mr. Cooper has informed us he had nothing to do with the account. “

Crooks and Liars deletes a comment where I criticize David Neiwert .

Now, who's the liar here?
Funny coming from David Neiwert who has not corrected his 90 % lie?

U.S. gun stores and gun shows are the source of more than 90 percent of the weapons being used by Mexico’s ruthless drug cartels, according to U.S. and Mexican law enforcement officials.
Of course David and the commenters here will ignore this because it comes from Fox News and they can not refute it.
There’s just one problem with the 90 percent "statistic" and it’s a big one: It’s just not true. In fact, it’s not even close. The fact is, only 17 percent of guns found at Mexican crime scenes have been traced to the U.S. What’s true, an ATF spokeswoman told, in a clarification of the statistic used by her own agency’s assistant director, "is that over 90 percent of the traced firearms originate from the U.S." But a large percentage of the guns recovered in Mexico do not get sent back to the U.S. for tracing, because it is obvious from their markings that they do not come from the U.S. "Not every weapon seized in Mexico has a serial number on it that would make it traceable, and the U.S. effort to trace weapons really only extends to weapons that have been in the U.S. market," Matt Allen, special agent of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told FOX News.
Can someone post a link to a liberal News source (NYT/MSNBC) that refutes this?
