Transcript:

Olbermann: But perhaps the oddest development comes not from Fox nor MSNBC, but from CNN. Howard Kurtz‘ media program, "Reliable Sources." He spent part of a segment called the media minute covering this, that‘s right, CNN's coverage of Fox's attack on MSNBC.

Well, great. Now I've sung on all news TV networks. We also have news of a small cottage industry creating petitions. Here‘s the original one on O'Reilly‘s Web site. You could read the names of who had signed it, until they took that page down because some of the names seemed to be fictitious. Mr. Keith is Great from Faloofah, Montana, for instance, Look at My from Ratings Drop, North Carolina, someone identified simply as Falafel N from The Shower, Wyoming and Andrea Mackris from How‘s Your Cash, PW. Why did they take those down?

Can you help us out?
