On Monday night, in response to a Times report alleging that Fox and NBC had brokered a deal to end his feud with Bill O'Reilly, Keith Olbermann lashed out at the world. Tonight it was O'Reilly's turn to rebel.
While Olbermann used his "Worst Persons" segment to call out O'Reilly, Rupert Murdoch and Brian Stelter, the Times media reporter who broke the story about the truce, O'Reilly tonight returned to flogging NBC's parent company, General Electric, for corporate corruption, as has long been his proclivity.
Since news of the secret arrangement broke last Friday night, O'Reilly has made no direct mention of Stelter's story, instead choosing to flaunt his independence tonight by chastising GE for polluting the Hudson River, among other things, and implicating Barack Obama as an accomplice in the process. O'Reilly then brought out noted corruption expert Dick Morris to lament about how truly revolting NBC and GE are because of the GE's corporate influence on its news organization.
So yeah, it's looks as though things are returning to normal in the Olbermann vs. O'Reilly cable news death feud, and really, isn't the world better off for it?
