The Daily Caller, one of the fastest-growing online media properties, announced today its acquisition of, expanding the company’s global reach into a new segment of the online political market.  For more than six months The Daily Caller has been a recognized market leader in commentary about Keith Olbermann.  Ruth Graham’s weekly Olbermann wrap-up, “We watch, because we’re paid to,” appears on The Daily Caller’s website each Friday.

“We plan to make The Daily Caller the one-stop online shop for Keith Olbermann commentary,” said Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson.  “We will be THE Keith Olbermann superstore.”

“This is part of our long-term growth strategy,” added Publisher and CEO Neil Patel.  “Our future acquisition targets include several other annoying cable news commentators.”

Olbermann, the host of a low-rated nightly show on MSNBC, attacked The Daily Caller last week on Twitter.  “Daily Caller has never known what Daily Caller is talking about,” he wrote.

The former ESPN sportscaster is no stranger to controversy.  Right-wing personality and Cornell alumnus Ann Coulter accused Olbermann, who also claims to be a Cornell graduate, of never having graduated from the Ivy League institution.  “He always forgets to mention that he went to the school that offers classes in milking and bovine management,” wrote Coulter in a 2009 column.

“Olbermann’s incessant lying about having an ‘Ivy League education’ when he went to the non-Ivy League ag school at Cornell would be like a graduate of the Yale locksmithing school boasting about being a ‘Yale man,'” Coulter continued.
