Bill O'Reilly takes the bronze and some major heat from Keith Olbermann during Tuesday's Worst Person in the World segment on Countdown. Olbermann nails him for continuing to link NBC & GE to Iran and conflating past business dealings with the country with dead American soldiers. (Google Halliburton, Doing Business, Iran)

The runner up is Jeff Hunt, Director of the Texas Military Forces Museum, who is now claiming he's being improperly condemned after he destroyed a diorama depicting the final battle of the Civil War that took a group of students over 3 years to create.

The winner was Cindy McCain, wife of GOP presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, for what amounts to recipe plagiarism. Mrs. McCain posted recipes on her husband's campaign website which were found to have been taken, verbatim, from the Food Network website.
