On the November 14 edition of MSNBC's Countdown, host Keith Olbermann awarded nationally syndicated radio host Michael Savage runner-up in his nightly "Worst Person in the World" segment for claiming, as Media Matters for America documented, that " '[t]he radical homosexual agenda will not stop until religion is outlawed in this country,' and 'they want full and total subjugation of this society to their agenda.' " Olbermann frequently honors Savage in his "Worst Person" segment, recently giving him "the bronze" for claiming that a Democratic victory in the November 7 midterm elections "could lead to the break up of the United States of America, the way the Soviet Union broke up."

According to Talkers magazine, Savage's radio program, The Savage Nation, attracts more than 8 million listeners a week and is heard on more than 300 stations nationwide, making it the third most listened-to talk radio show in the nation, behind The Rush Limbaugh Show and The Sean Hannity Show.

From the November 14 edition of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:

OLBERMANN: Our runner-up tonight, Michael Weiner-Savage, back on the radio declaring, quote, "The radical homosexual agenda will not stop until religion is outlawed in this country," and "they want full and total subjugation of this society to their agenda." Hey, fella, you're just nuts, huh?
