Keith Olbermann had a few choice words for the Fox & Friends weekend hosts (Dave Briggs, Alisyn Camerota and Clayton Morris) for denigrating Stacey Hessler, the Florida mom who travelled to Zuccotti Park to join Occupy Wall Street. That video was featured yesterday at Crooks and Liars.

OLBERMANN: So she's disgusting, she's having a midlife crisis, she is denying her husband sex and is an unfit mother because she decided to get involved in something political that she believes in?

As the initial story began in another Rupert Murdoch enterprise, the New York Post, Olbermann's caustic remark is probably completely justified. Olbermann has said on more than one occasion that Fox News is 100% bullshit. And he's right, of course.
