FOXNews' Bill O'Reilly was only able to make the bronze on Monday's Worst Person in the World segment on Countdown for telling fellow moron Dick Morris that Reverend Wright was Obama's Willie Horton.

The silver went to Heather Mills-McCartney for allegedly throwing a glass of water in the face of Paul McCartney's lawyer after today's divorce hearing.

The gold went to Bill Keller, Managing Editor of The New York Times. Keith Olbermann called on Keller to fire William Kristol for smearing Barack Obama with false information he cut & pasted from right wing website, Newsmax. (Newsmax was caught trying to scrub the error from their Wiki page) Kristol wrote in the NYT that Obama was "in the pews" during one of Reverend Wright's sermons when in fact, he was in Florida. This is the second time that Kristol had to admit that his assertions are not based on fact. Does the name Jayson Blair ring any bells to Keller? Is he willing to go down the same road with Kristol?

Can you help us out?
