We already know that the people in the news departments at liberal MSNBC and conservative Fox News hate each others guts. This leads to constant sniping by the hosts over ratings and personal attacks.
Wednesday night got a little extra testy when MSNBC “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann went after the dead father of Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. Earlier in the week, O’Reilly claimed that actress Jennifer Aniston was “destroying America” by promoting single motherhood.
Olbermann went after O’Reilly for having “daddy issues.” He quoted a biography of O’Reilly by Marvin Kitman saying,
“Virtually every reference O’Reilly makes to his own father describes how the man hit, slapped, or punched him…O’Reilly has a history of physical abuse with his father.”
Nice touch! Accusing your chief rival’s now-dead father of child beating. Well done, sir!
