Krazy Keith Study

TV Newser reports FNC chief Roger Ailes has officially joined his host Bill O’Reilly on Keith Olbermann’s list of The Worst People in the World. Ailes was named the worst for the very first time on MSNBC’s Countdown Monday night. “Apparently, its position as the network of choice for those aged 70 or over, or those with IQ’s 70 or under, is insufficient,” Olbermann began.

Brad Wilmouth and Rich Noyes at MRC have counted up all the “Worst Person in the World”  awards from Olbermann in the last year. Unsurprisingly, almost nine out of ten political targets was conservative. It’s comical that Olbermann named Bill O’Reilly as a world-class jerk 42 times, but Saddam Hussein only twice. What’s really surprising is that Olbermann goes out in public and claims he doesn’t display a political POV.

The ancient historian Thucydides called the civil discord that tore apart the ... Read More
