Keith Olbermann calls Fox News 'political whorehouse'

Liberal gasbag Keith Olbermann got angry at the conservative gasbags at Fox News last night, placing the weekend hosts of Fox & Friends on his ever-expanding “Worst Persons” list. Olbermann described Dave Briggs, Alisyn Camerota, and Clayton Morris as “the B-Team to the weekly dingbats.” He stood on his moral high horse and took the B-Team to task for a segment where they stood on their moral high horse and took someone else to task — in this case, a politically-motivated mother who left her kids at home with her loving husband to join Occupy Wall Street. Camerota accused the woman of being a bad mother. Olbermann said of Camerota: “She has three kids, yet she leaves the house at 4 in the morning to go work at the political whorehouse that is Fox News. I don’t see anybody suggesting they take her kids away!” Thus, over-exaggeration led to more over-exaggeration. Watch the video:

Here’s our prediction for how this plays out in the next few days:

1. Fox News acts like Olbermann called Camerota a prostitute, gets one of their old-white-man anchors to accuse Olbermann of being anti-feminist.

2. Olbermann says something to the effect of “a prostitute is more honest than a Fox News anchor!”

3. The general public remains gleefully ignorant about the existence of something called Current TV.

4. The state of discourse in the American media industry spirals ever downwards, until by 2012 Presidential Debates have been replaced by Presidential Keg Challenges. Whoever vomits the least wins!

    Can we just agree that both sides are stupid and that they are both wrong?

    • Esox

      I will whole heartedly agree with that!
      Extremists are so alike. Except for their politics.

      • Chaz

        No we can’t . Fox is always more wrong.

        Olbermann is a stupid douche bag, just like Obama.

    • E.B. Berman

      Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong.

        Stephen Stills!

    • Mildred

      No. People like you, who entirely lack opinions of their own, are the problem.

    • AJ

      No. Acting like both side act the same is enabling the destruction of American institutions but the power mad rich of this country. The fact of the matter is that FOX News, and the super-rich that support them, are low-lifes and liars of the highest order!

    • maggie

      The “Worst Persons” segment is meant to be like Anderson Cooper’s “Ridiculist.” It’s a joking look at stupid things people do and say.
      Fox News wasn’t joking when they said those things about that OWS mom.

  • dessa

    Oh, darlings, whoever does the longest keg stand wins, obviously! Vomiting is soooo last season.

  • mo

    keith is right about fox news.

    • Massey

      Do you people even watch Fox News? I am an independent and watch it because it does less bashing of the left than CNN or MSNBC does of the right. If you don’t believe me, that’s fine, but if you really care, check it out for your self.

      • maggie

        I’ve watched Fox News and it’s slanted to the right, to the point that they put on GOP talking points rather than real news.
        I try to watch all of the news channels to get an idea of what info is being put out by each.

      • gene

        Massey, I agree with you 100%

  • WEHOtom

    Agree wholeheartedly. Can anyone actually disagreed that Fox So-Called News is anything but a right wing Republican propaganda arm? There are so many examples…..

  • angieb09

    OMG you rock Keith

  • d

    keith has a way with words .

  • Pattyl

    Wow, is that not the pot calling the kettle black. I haven’t watched MSNBC since they helped BUY the election of Obama. They’re all a bunch of arrogant idiots that spout hatered under the name JOURNALISM

    • Sam

      Olbermann doesn’t work for MSNBC.
