Ailes Fires Back at Olbermann

7/25/2006 9:01 AM Eastern

Fox News Channel chairman and CEO Roger Ailes fired the latest salvo in an ongoing battle with Keith Olbermann, host of MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, AP reported.

At the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, Calif., this past weekend, Olbermann donned a mask of Bill O'Reilly, host of Fox News’ The O'Reilly Factor, and gave a Nazi salute, according to AP.

Olbermann regularly tweaks O'Reilly on Countdown, naming him his "Worst Person in the World" at least 15 times, AP reported.

“I really think that's over the line,” Ailes said of the O’Reilly incident, adding, “Clearly, he has no viewers except those he gets when he attacks Fox News,” according to AP.
