Must see TV
As Atrios points out, Stewart and Colbert are going to be fighting over who gets to use this. And I wonder who will be Olbermann's worst person in the world tonight.
On his Fox News program, Bill O'Reilly called Mel Gibson's recent anti-Semitic comments "inexcusable," but said it is "more important" to discuss the "point where the media and individual Americans start to enjoy the suffering of rich and powerful people." Guest Geraldo Rivera later suggested that O'Reilly refer to "that schmuck from MSNBC," apparently MSNBC host Keith Olbermann; Rivera added that the "schmuck from MSNBC" is a "lowlife." Rivera also asserted that Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert "make a living putting on video of old ladies slipping on ice and people laughing" and that they "exist in a small little place where they count for nothing."

Go read the whole transcript. There is nothing more precious that watching O'Reilly and Rivera comiserating about how wrong it is for people to pick on rich celebrities.
