Well that was fun. To catch you up if you are unfamiliar: Redheadedwoman
over at Daily Kos
posted a diary
last Friday talking about Bill O'Reilly's online petition to bring back Phil Donohue
in the MSNBC 8pm hour. This, of course, is a total swipe at Keith Olbermann's Countdown
, currently in that slot on MSNBC. SO. I posted my own petition to fire Bill O'Reilly
for "willfully distributing inaccurate information" thereby exposing Fox News and the shareholders of its parent, News Corp, to revenue-endangering lawsuits. And yes, it was in good fun but it took hold over at Daily Kos
and stayed on the recommended list. The petition currently has 768 signatures. All quite fun.
So last night, I was paying bills and on my laptop in the living room with Olbermann on in the background. He featured some really funny comments he had seen on O'Reilly's petiton (now removed, since they are critical of O'Reilly) and them WHAM - he cut to talk about counter-petitions and there was my diary (cross-posted here) on the screen. He even quoted from it. Cool!!
