Gateway Pundit Blogger Jim Hoft Earns Ire of Keith Olbermann

Political commentator Keith Olbermann took note yesterday of St. Louis' own Jim Hoft, the conservative blogger behind Gateway Pundit.

Olbermann singled out Hoft for his coverage last week following the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others in Arizona. Following Olbermann's overly self-congratulatory reflection on his own response to the shooting, the MSNBC host took Hoft to task for citing a fake Facebook page in which suspect Jared Loughner supposedly named Barack Obama and Che Guevara as his heroes.

Olbermann went on to cite Hoft's follow-up coverage three other times during his tirade. See St. Louis Activist Hub for a case-by-case critique of Hoft via Olbermann.
