The deal that wasn't was the worst
Keith Olbermann last night named New York Times reporter Brian Stelter the third worst person in the world for reporting that the heads of GE and News Corp. had brokered a deal to end the bickering between Olbermann and Bill O'Reilly. Stelter earned the ignominy, Olbermann said, because no deal was ever made. Olbermann then went on to name News Corp. boss Rupert Murdoch as the very worst person in the world for meddling in O'Reilly's show. James Poniewozik at Time sums up the logic here.
