Daily Caller Acquires KeithOlbermann.com

Amusing:

The Daily Caller, one of the fastest-growing online media properties, announced today its acquisition of KeithOlbermann.com, 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.”

Not sure how long this will last until a domain squatting claim is made, but it should be fun to watch.

    I’m sure they will continue to pay for the KeithOlbermann.com domain and simply forward it to the Olbermann specific URL at daily caller.

    Alexa has Dailycaller.com’s traffic rank today exactly where it was 6 months ago.

    Wonder what they mean by “fastest-growing?”
