Olbermann Wants Dirt on Glenn Beck, Roger Ailes

"After Glenn Beck scored a touchdown for the right with the announcement this weekend that Obama's Green Jobs Czar Van Jones had resigned, liberal MSNBC host Keith Olbermann has come out swinging.

In a post made to his Daily Kos blog, Olbermann says he wants readers to help him dig up dirt on Beck, as well as Fox News chairman Roger Ailes.

Olbermann promised his fans: "Tuesday we will expand this to the television audience and have a dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts, on Beck, his radio producer Burguiere, and the chief of his TV enablers, Ailes (even though Ailes' power was desperately undercut when he failed to pull off his phony "truce" push)."

On Sunday Olbermann offered an "update" to his blog: "This posting has been visited lately by visitors who have kind of rushed through this and concluded I have decided, out of the blue, to collect 'dirt' on Glenn Beck."

He added: "I forgot I'd need to explain things slowly for them." Olbermann then linked to another blog with a story claiming that Beck sent his followers a Twitter message this weekend stating: "FIND EVERYTHING YOU CAN ON CASS SUNSTEIN, MARK LLOYD AND CAROL BROWNER."

Sunstein is Obama's nominee for the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs. Lloyd is the new, controversial "Chief Diversity Officer" of the FCC who has stated that the U.S. should model its media after Venezuela under dictator Hugo Chavez. And Browner, a former Clinton administration official, is the Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change."
