Keith Olbermann: Bill O'Reilly Was Abused by His Dad (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 12th 2010 1:00AM
On 'Countdown With Keith Olbermann' (weeknights, 8PM ET on MSNBC) Keith Olbermann rushed to the aid of Jennifer Aniston, who had been slammed by his nemesis, Bill O'Reilly, for her promotion of single motherhood, which O'Reilly feels demeans dads and fatherhood.

Then things got strange. Olbermann, after naming O'Reilly the "world's worst" for the umpteenth time, mentioned that there had been a lot of amateur psychoanalysis of O'Reilly. Next, without further context, he offered this:

"If you've read Marvin Kitman's biography of O'Reilly, it's pretty simple," Olbermann said. "Virtually every reference O'Reilly makes to his own father describes how the man hit, slapped, punched him. As Kitman put it, simply, O'Reilly has a history of physical abuse with his father. It is actually very sad."

Alrighty then. So O'Reilly may have been abused by his dad. Not quite sure what that has to do with Aniston's comment on single mothers, but you stay classy, Keith.

I THINK KEITH OLBERMANN IS A ABSOLUTE CRAXY MAN. ALL HE EVER WORRIES ABOUT IS WHAT FOX NEWS SAYS. IF HE WOULD BE ORIGINAL WITH HIS OPINIONS , HE WOULD BE WORTH LISTENING TO. HE NEVER HAS A TWO SIDED INTERVIEW,
ONLY THOSE WHO AGREE WITH HIS TWISTED VIEWS. HE ALMOST COMES ACROSS AS INSECURE..

I'm not a Bill O'Reilly fan, but these tirades are just uncomfortable and make Olbermann seem crazy and obsessed. Dude needs to let it go.

So Keith thinks Bill used to get beat up by his father? At least he didn't allege that he got beat every single night the way Bill does Keith now (825 to 301 last night).

I almost wish that Dan Patrick weren't so talented a sportscaster that he made that clown look like he knew what he was doing on Sportscenter years ago.

K.O. only parrots what's handed him by the writers. I seriously doubt that he's had an original thought actually on the air since he switched from sportscaster.

Actually he was the "Worser" person and If Billo was abused by his dad it would make no sense to me that he would be so strongly for the "Nuclear family" since he's been physically abused that just perplexes me
