Worst Person in the World
The gold goes to Keith Olbermann. My favorite news show is (was) Countdown (on MSNBC) and its host has a serious credibility problem. There appears to have been a quid pro quo deal between GE (the parent company of MSNBC) and News Corp. Olbermann was ordered to lay off Bill O'Reilly and he complied. Olbermann's response, that "I am party to no deal" is a classic non-denial denial. Corporate influence is the hallmark of Fox News and now MSNBC, too. Olbermann's stained reputation can only affect other MSNBC shows, such as the Rachel Maddow Show.
