On the November 27 edition of MSNBC's Countdown, host Keith Olbermann awarded Fox News host Bill O'Reilly the "silver" in his nightly "Worst Person in the World" segment for writing, as Media Matters for America documented: "I coined the term 'San Francisco values' and well understand they have little to do with democracy." Olbermann explained that, in fact, "[a] California congressman used it in a campaign as early as 1996," as Media Matters noted.
O'Reilly frequents Olbermann's "Worst Person" segment and recently received the top honor for claiming "it is never the case" that a woman's "life is in danger" due to pregnancy.
From the November 27 edition of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:
OLBERMANN: Speaking of things made out of wood, our silver tonight goes to Bill-O, whining about something about the Bay Area in his not-so-widely-read newspaper column. He wrote, quote, "I coined the term 'San Francisco values' and well understand they have little to do with democracy." You didn't coin it, fathead. The computer search engine Nexis shows Bill Orally first using it last month. A California congressman used it in a campaign as early as 1996. You coined it -- and you got a Peabody Award for it.
