A health policy expert who Keith Olbermann eviscerated during Thursday's "Countdown" (video embedded below the fold) has officially challenged the disgraceful MSNBC personality to a debate concerning provisions in the soon to be enacted stimulus plan.In a press release issued Friday, Betsy McCaughey stated:
If Keith Olbermann of MSNBC could defend the health provisions slipped into the stimulus bill on their merits, he wouldn't be resorting to personal attacks on me. Olbermann calls me a shill funded by the drug industry (2-12-2009). That's not true...If Keith Olbermann has the courage, I invite him to debate me on his program...Mr. Olbermann, do you have the backbone (and the facts) to debate me?
It's funny that with all the attacks liberals are hurling at Rush Limbaugh (if he's so "insignificant", why even pay attention to him?), the most popular pundit serving the Left's interests would be the likes of Olbermann--who by the way, for all his over-the-top bias and projections, can barely garner half of Bill O'Reilly's ratings. Of course, Olbermann won't take on McCaughey's challenge because KO relies too much on lies, smears and Media Matters for his cesspool of a show. But yeah, he's still the best they got--any wonder why more and more Dems are pushing for the Fairness Doctrine?
