PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Fox News Channel chairman and CEO Roger Ailes responded to Keith Olbermann's latest critical volley against Bill O'Reilly on Monday, saying the MSNBC host's behavior ''is over the line.''
Ailes, appearing Monday at the summer meeting of the Television Critics Association, was referring to a weekend incident at the gathering in which Olbermann whipped out a mask of O'Reilly and gave a Nazi salute.
Ailes said Olbermann picks on Fox's O'Reilly to boost his ratings.
''Clearly he has no viewers except those he gets when he attacks Fox News,'' Ailes said.
Of Saturday's incident, Ailes said, ''I really think that's over the line.''
As opposed to O'Reilly's anti-semitic comments and threatening listerners? Molesting staffers?
Shut the fuck up and sit down.
