Mike Rosen Claims 'Worst Person' Title On Olbermann (VIDEO)

On Monday, Denver Post Columnist Mike Rosen earned the dubious distinction of 'Worst Person in the World' on Keith Olbermann's MSNBC show.

Rosen earned the title during a debate last week, when he responded to a question about the controversial proposed Islamic center near ground zero in New York City by saying "I think they should be allowed to build it, following the hijacking of an Iranian plane right into that building and blow it to smithereens."

In a statement to the Denver Daily News, Rosen called the uproar surrounding his comments "radical-leftist, transparently manufactured, theatrical outrage."
