Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Wednesday, Oct. 25 he had this to say:

Hassle for Law and Order
Elizabeth Hasselbeck is putting the “special” back into “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”  Miss Hasselbeck, perhaps best known for her work as a mime on the show the “View,” told the grown-ups on that program that she was outraged by the name of one of “Law & Order’s” special victims:  Elizabeth Hassenback.  Elizabeth Hasselbeck says a producer for the show told her the name was a coincidence.

In fact a COUNTDOWN analysis determined that Miss Hasselbeck is not alone in her complaint that in fact among all the “Law & Order” franchises combined; they have now killed off the entire population of New York City. 

Shaq the sheriff?
A Virginia sheriff as confirmed Shaquille O’Neal’s participation in a child porn raid last month.  You may know that when he’s not playing for the Miami Heat, O’Neal is patrolling for the Virginia fuzz.  He’s a reserve sheriff’s deputy in addition to being a reserve officer in Miami Beach. 

Despite O’Neal’s denial on Tuesday, a Virginia sheriff tells the Associated Press that Shaq was, in fact, part of a child porn raid last month, but the raid was taking place at the wrong house.  Sheriff’s house says they hit the wrong home address because an Internet provider gave them the wrong I.P. address for the suspect’s computer. 

Longtime fans may remember Shaq used the same excuse after missing all 11 free-throws against Seattle at a game in 2000. 

Dick Clark's garage sale
And if you’ve ever wanted to own some of Dick Clarks’ stuff, well here’s your chance.  That’s right, America’s oldest teenager is throwing America’s biggest garage sale. 

The 76-year-old, former host of “American Bandstand,” putting a lifetime’s work of music history on the auction black.  Some of the profits will go to help raise money for research for fighting cancer and AIDS. Among the goodies, the microphone Clark first used on July 9, 1956, his first day hosting “American Bandstand.” 

Also up for grabs, a base guitar from Paul McCartney’s Beatle’s days, Bob Dylan’s harmonica from the concert film “The Last Waltz,” and oddly enough, both Michael Jackson’s glove and a huge collection of “Playboy” magazines, apparently marking the first time Michael Jackson’s a glove has come near a copy of “Playboy” magazine.
