Tuesday's Worst Person in the World segment on Countdown began with the bronze going to baseball player, Chuck Knoblauch, for failing to answer a letter from Congress asking him to testify in the steroids hearings. The silver went to the Clark Co. Washington GOP for posting a hateful and false smear e-mail on their website that claims Barack Obama is a Muslim, among other nasty things. The gold went to perennial WPITW winner, Bill O'Reilly. BillO still claims that there are few, if any homeless veterans in America and insists that they aren't living under bridges -- Keith reads a news story from late last year about a homeless vet in Iowa who was found dead from hypothermia -- he was living under a bridge.

Olbermann: "Well, Bill, you're right. This homeless vet is not living under a bridge tonight.....he's dead."

IAVA is still hosting a petition you can sign and send a message to Bill O'Reilly on just how very wrong he continues to be. To learn more about homeless vets and how you can help, IAVA has fact sheets and information.
