On Monday, Bill O’Reilly issued a viewer warning against MSNBC, suggesting that their programming would not be suitable for children as their commentators would be committing suicide on the air. Not that they were all sunshine and rainbows, but O’Reilly’s prediction fell short, and at least one MSNBC host, Keith Olbermann, went out of his way today to point out that he boldly chose not to fulfill O’Reilly’s prediction.
Olbermann played the clip of O’Reilly’s viewer warning and responded by simply waving and telling O’Reilly that he was “still here, unlike your humanity!” After a couple of years of targeting up-and-comers like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin and making his “World’s Worsts” segment just a memory fit for VH1’s inevitable “I Love the ’00s,” could Olbermann be looking to reignite his early-aughts feud with his original arch nemesis? If history is any indication, it would do wonders for ratings.
