Keith Olbermann featured an all-News Corp "Worst Persons" Monday night, with Rupert Murdoch, Roger Ailes, and Bill O'Reilly taking top honors.
O'Reilly took the "Worse" bronze for his claims that the Bush administration had essentially defeated al Qaeda and effectively won the war on terror already.
"Tell that to the 17,000 troops the US is about to send to Afghanistan," Olbermann said.
Fox News chief Roger Ailes got the "Worser" silver for allowing his anchors to read comments from the FoxNews.com community that compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler and to a monkey.
Olbermann gave the "Worst" award to Murdoch — who he declared "the font of all this evil" — for allowing his New York Post to publish gossip about his biographer Michael Wolff, which Olbermann posited was revenge for Wolff's comments about Post editor Col Allan and the paper's controversial chimp cartoon. This, Olbermann said, was reason enough to reexamine media ownership rules.
