Olbermann: Bill O’Reilly Defended the Nazis
Robert Cox notes that Keith Olbermann is defending his bizarre Nazi salute stunt by slandering Bill O’Reilly:
Olbermann claimed that Bill O’Reilly “defended the Nazis from World War II on three separate occasions”, a claim he had advanced earlier in the day in a letter sent to noted media blogger Jim Romenesko of the Poynter Institute.
And incredulous Leno asked “Oh, really?”
Olbermann replied “Yes, I wish I were making this up.”
To his credit, Leno’s instincts were right. Olbermann was making it up.
Much more at the link. Now, frankly, I find O’Reilly annoying at best and obnoxious at worst. I liked Olbermann as a sports guy but find him to be a pompous ass as a news pundit. Still, this kind of thing is beneath him.
