Countdown's Keith Olbermann filled his viewers in on Bill O'Reilly's, shall we say, less than friendly encounter with Occupy DC protester Branden Lane and O'Reilly's response on Fox this Thursday evening, where he said he was thinking about the John Lennon assassination and thought that Lane was "out of control."

As Keith noted, O'Reilly doesn't mind sicking his minions on unsuspecting victims of his ambush journalism for Fox, but he's not so thrilled when the tables are turned on himself.

Keith followed up with Occupy DC protester from Wisconsin Jobs Now Branden Lane, who explained how he happened to see O'Reilly leaving the same hotel where the Newt Gingrich protests were occurring and why he and his group were spending time in D.C. making their voices heard on being fed up with our politicians continually looking out for the 1 percent and that O'Reilly how O'Reilly and the misinformation he pushes at Fox are a perfect example of what they're fed up with.
