Pat Sajak apologized for introducing Keith Olbermann to America.
But now Olbermann says that Sajak taking blame — or credit — for helping to raise his national profile is ridiculous, especially since the show in question, The Pat Sajak Show, stunk.
The war of words began Wednesday when Sajak wrote an article for right-of-center website Ricochet.com that carried the headline: “Mea Culpa: I put Keith Olbermann on national TV.”
The subhead of the article is: “I was the person who introduced Keith Olbermann to America.”
“He didn’t,” Olbermann said in an email to The Hollywood Reporter, because he was on CNN as early as 1981 while Sajak had him as a guest on his late-night talk show for the first time in 1989.
