On the July 18 edition of MSNBC's Countdown, host Keith Olbermann named Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly the "winner" of his nightly "Worst Person in the World" segment for defending his comparison of the Daily Kos blog to the Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan during the July 17 edition of Fox News The O'Reilly Factor, as Media Matters for America documented. Olbermann observed: "After the tidal wave of protests across the political spectrum as to his comparison of the liberal website the Daily Kos to the Nazis, he is still sticking with it. 'Hate is hate. That website traffics in it, as do Nazi websites. No difference.' "
As Media Matters has documented (here, here, here, and here), Olbermann frequently names O'Reilly in his "Worst Person" segment. Recently, Olbermann named O'Reilly "winner" of "Worst Person" honors for what Olbermann called "the stupid and very possibly libelous claim" that NBC and The New York Times "don't want Iraq to become successful as a nation or to somehow become a wall against terrorism."
From the July 18 edition of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:
OLBERMANN: But the winner, Bill-O. After the tidal wave of protest from across the political spectrum as to his comparison of the liberal website the Daily Kos to the Nazis, he's still sticking with it. "Hate is hate. That website traffics in it, as do the Nazi websites. No difference."
Bill-O doesn't understand the difference between Nazis and Daily Kos. Well, we already knew he didn't understand the difference between the Nazis and the American victims of Nazi war crimes at Malmédy in World War II, so this should not be surprising. His stupidity is effervescent. It glows. It fairly ungulates and vibrates. I'll stop now; I'm getting Bill-O excited. Bill Orally, today's Worst Person in the World.
