No Objections to Olbermann's Potential Purchase of Orioles

Keith Olbermann is reportedly part of a group looking to purchase the Baltimore Orioles:

Sources have reported that Billy Ripken is heading a group of investors that includes Keith Olbermann, Harold Reynolds, C. Dean Metropoulos, and The Topps Company, Inc.

Progressives/liberals were upset when Rush Limbaugh was part of a group that tried to buy the St. Louis Rams:

Conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh lashed out at NFL union leader DeMaurice Smith, activists Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and the media a day after being dropped from a group trying to buy the St. Louis Rams.

On his syndicated show Thursday, Limbaugh said he was approached by St. Louis Blues chairman Dave Checketts earlier this year about participating in a Rams bid. Checketts assured him his involvement as a minority investor had been vetted by the NFL, he said.

“I said to him at this meeting, ‘Are you aware of the firestorm?’ He said ‘We wouldn’t have approached you if we hadn’t taken care of that,’ ” said Limbaugh, a conservative favorite who is reviled by many liberals.

The group that protested Limbaugh’s inclusion as part of the prospective Rams group has not objected to Olbermann’s inclusion in the prospective Orioles group.

NOTE: We haven’t found any other confirmation of this other than the above-referenced link. If it’s a late April Fool’s joke, well, his Current TV firing was funnier.
