Olbermann: O'Reilly Has Left the Human Race

Reported by Judy - March 13, 2007 -

Sooner or later, it had to get to this point, the point where the "worst person in the world" doesn't quite cover the sins of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly. MSNBC's Keith Olbermann reached that point on Monday (March 12, 2007). With video.

Olbermann awarded O'Reilly the gold medal in his "worst person" derby for O'Reilly's comments last week about the children killed in a fire in New York. O'Reilly was obsessed with whether the children were in this country legally, complaining that he could not determine their status because New York is a "sanctuary city." He claimed that the children were dead because of "compassion" that allowed them to come to this country.

Olbermann said that while immigration is a fair topic for discussion, concentrating on the legal status of the children even as they were being buried was inappropriate. And after awarding O'Reilly the gold, he said the Fox News commentator had left the human race.
