Keith Olbermann Admits His Attacks on Bill O'Reilly Were 'Over the Top' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 18th 2010 11:23AM
On Tuesday's Countdown With Olbermann (Weeknights, 8 PM ET on MSNBC) Keith admitted that last week he made "over the top" comments about Bill O'Reilly.

While Olbermann didn't specify what the remarks were, we are pretty certain he is referring to bringing up a theory that O'Reilly was abused as a child to explain why O'Reilly took offense to comments Jennifer Aniston made about single motherhood.

And why would Olbermann make such a concession? Well, he believes that because of his "over the top" attack, O'Reilly responded by running a segment connecting GE -- MSNBC's parent company -- to the Oil for Food scandal.

He also wanted to make clear to his audience that the segment he was about to run on how News Corp -- Fox News's parent company -- gave a $1 million donation to the Republican Governor's Association was not a tit for tat response to O'Reilly's expose on GE, which Olbermann believes was in response to his comments.

Got that? Anyway, the offshoot is that Olbermann and O'Reilly are still not friends.
