What's a sign that a liberal media outlet has made a disastrous hire? Having fellow Keith Olbermann publicly lambaste you for doing so. The former MSNBC anchor, now on ESPN, assailed Huffington Post for hiring a 9/11 conspiracy theorist to cover national security. An outraged Olbermann quoted the tweets of former football player Donte Stallworth, including this one: "No way 9/11 was carried out by dying bin Laden, 19 men who couldn't fly a damn kite. Still have no evidence Osama was connected, like Iraq."
Olbermann noted that, despite dismissing his own tweets as something that he doesn't believe anymore and that occurred five years ago, Stallworth was tweeting 9/11 truther propaganda nine months ago. The sports anchor mocked, "So, your supposed news website just hired to cover national security a still theoretically active NFL player with no journalism experience, who is a 9/11 truther, supposedly reformed about being a 9/11 truther, but lying about when he reformed."
