Keith Olbermann Calls Fox News “100% Bullshit,” Media Matters Proves He's Right

Fox News' IQ-lowering properties have been more widely publicized as of late, between the significant, scientific study AlterNet reported and publications such as the LA Times calling for the network to give up the ghost of being an objective news site. And yesterday, Keith Olbermann ramped up his efforts to expose Fox's misinformation campaign, tweeting to his over 170,000 followers that Fox is “bullshit” and pointing out specific stories to his followers who doubted him. “ ”FYI: in reply to "highly ironic that you support Daily Kos yet think Fox News is slanted,"” he tweeted, “I said: Fox News is 100% bullshit. And it is.

The Huffington Post:

"I don't have as much hate or as many lies in me as O'Reilly," he tweeted.

One Twitter user, William R. Dickson, tweeted back at Olbermann with the following, which he retweeted to his 169,000-plus followers:

"Surely not 100%. Surely it is a rich blend of manure from a wide variety of farm animals."

He went on to blast Bill O'Reilly by calling him “bullshit,” as well, along with observing that “There are no news or facts on O'Reilly. Just fear and delusions.” He then proceeded to engage in twitter arguments with Fox supporters -- oh, Keith! Though it may seem frivolous, it remains important to spread the truth that Fox News is full of lies. To prove a point -- last week, Media Matters released its list of Fox's biggest lies and most egregious infractions, broken down by month. It's a must-read, though if you're taking blood pressure medicine you might want to pop a pill before you read it. And after that, if you're still standing? Read their breakdown of the 15 biggest lies told by Glenn Beck, the insanest of them all.
