When E-mails Go Bad

Our eagle-eyed brother at TVNewser found this gem within a Felix Gillette-penned piece for the Observer on potential CNBC defections to Fox Business:

Publicly, Mr. Bolling has since suggested that he wanted to spend more time with his family (don’t they all?). But CNBC executives suspected otherwise, thanks in part to an e-mail in which Mr. Bolling’s lawyer chewed over the enforceability of a non-compete clause in the pundit’s contract. Mr. Bolling, according to court documents, had intended to forward the message to Kevin Magee, a senior executive at the Fox Business Network, but instead directed it to CNBC honcho Kevin Goldman.

Yeah, we hate when that happens.
