Today's Worst Person in the World segment on Countdown saw the host himself taking the bronze. Yesterday, during the WPITW segment, Keith Olbermann called on the New York Times' Bill Keller to fire right wing hack, Bill Kristol, after he used faulty information to smear Barack Obama in his Times column, but as it turns out, Keller did not hire Kristol and cannot fire him.
The silver went to FOXNews owner, Rupert Murdoch, for short-changing his 99 year old mother to the tune of $273 million dollars, then sticking her with a tax bill that has ballooned to nearly $70 million -- a move to get her to keep her money in his evil media empire, News Corp.
Last, and by no means least, Senator John McCain takes the gold for making a fool of himself by claiming that Iran was training al Qaeda members in Iran, and sending them into Iraq. (not once, but thrice) Unfortunately for Grandpa McCain, he was mistaken and had to be reminded by Joe Lieberman that Iran was NOT training members of al Qaeda.
Olbermann: "No wonder McCain's talking about 100 years in Iraq. It'll take him that long just to figure out what's going on there!"
