Olbermann Renames FNC the 'Fox Nothing Channel'

Reported by Judy - January 23, 2007 -

Fox News' repetition of the right-wing smear that Barack Obama attended a radical Islamic school could not go unnoticed by MSNBC's Keith Olbermann for long. Olbermann delivered a double-hit on Fox News on Monday (January 22, 2007). Two-for-one video.

Olbermann poked fun at Fox News for its new advertising campaign, which claims that Fox News is the only channel that doesn't offer the usual "left-wing bias." Olbermann offered a satirical competing ad campaign for MSNBC, which promises that it is the only channel that doesn't offer the usual "government propaganda" and "we don't bring you stuff Fox made up about Obama."

Olbermann went on to name Fox News, the Fox Nothing Channel, saying it no longer deserves the title of a "news" channel. And he named it, along with the New York Post, the Washington Times, and Insight Magazine the "worst person" in the world for last Friday's made-up story about Obama's early education as a child living in Indonesia with his mother and step-father.

Both clips are in the video.
