On Monday's "Worst Person in the World" segment of Countdown, we look at bullies in the media and the right wing enablers who love them. The bronze goes to Falafel Boy for his soft touch with Republican Spokesperson (and RAGING anti-Semite) Ann Coulter; the silver to comedian Rush Limbaugh for his attack dog--and ironically hypocritical-- threats against a journalist who was working on a less than flattering profile of him and the gold goes to Murdoch-owned NY Post Page Six Editor Richard Johnson for all but suggesting that another journalist needed to be gang-raped for her less than flattering comments of the Page Six staff after they mocked her.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
