O'Reilly-Olbermann Feud: Now It's Fox News Host's Turn To Destroy Truce

Posted: Updated:

Now it's Bill O'Reilly's turn to destroy the last shred of any truce between the Fox News host and his prime-time nemesis, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann.

On Monday night, Olbermann denied reports of a truce and tried to prove his point by slamming O'Reilly, giving him the silver medal in his "World's Worst Person" segment. To up the ante, he then awarded Fox News head Rupert Murdoch the gold medal.

On Wednesday night, it was O'Reilly's turn, staying true to his favored tactics in this media melee: refusing to say Olbermann's name and attacking MSNBC's parent company, GE, on a day when it was in the news for accounting fraud (a story that conveniently fell into O'Reilly's lap).

In a segment titled "Corporate Corruption," O'Reilly took aim at GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt for raising money for President Obama and advising the administration while his company was paying $50 million in fines to settle SEC charges of accounting fraud. He also fired away at GE over the company's environmental record, citing its pollution of the Hudson River.
