Hating humanity

Keith Olbermann puts Bill O'Reilly to shame

I picked this up from elfs and it really deserves to be shared. Bill O'Reilly can't get his facts straight - and Keith Olbermann doesn't let him get away with it. Like Elf said, this is how editorials should be written:
Abraham Lincoln did not shoot John Wilkes Booth. The Titanic did not sink a north Atlantic iceberg. And FOX News is neither fair nor balanced. These are facts intelligible to all adults, most children, and some of your more discerning domesticated animals. But not, as the third story on the Countdown proves yet again, not to Bill-O. The guilty pleasure offered by the existence of Bill O'Reilly is simple but understandable. 99 times out of 100, when we belly up to the Bill-O bar of bluster, nearly every time we partake of the movable falafel feast, he serves us nothing but comedy, farce, slapstick, unconscious self-mutilation, the Sideshow Bob of commentators forever stepping on the same rake, forever muttering the same grunted, inarticulate surrender, forever resuming the circle that will take him back to the same rake. The Sisyphus of morons, if you will. But this is the 100th time out of 100. It is not funny at all.
Watch the full video! (via YouTube) It deserves to be watched.
Zoe is stunned.  So am I.
