Today in Domain Registration Silliness: Salon Buys TuckerCarlson.net

Prank update: Just after Tucker Carlson’s Keith Olbermann-obsessed website The Daily Caller bought the rights to KeithOlbermann.com, Salon.com has picked up TuckerCarlson.net. Our sister site, WebNewser, has the story.

Salon political funnyman Alex Pareene, who joined the site from Gawker in April, writes:

Tragically, Carlson has already reserved TuckerCarlson.com. But TuckerCarlson.net was there for the taking, and so we took it. At the moment, we’re just pointing it at War Room. But what should we do with it?

Alexpareene.com is apparently still up for grabs. No word yet on whether The Daily Caller plans on taking this fiasco full circle.

Update: Pareene tells FishbowlNY that he owns Alexpareene.com.
