Mark Halperin Makes ‘Worst Persons’

Mark Halperin was dubbed one of the Worst Persons in the World by Keith Olbermann last night for the comments made at the panel we covered at USC this weekend.

We asked LAT’s Mark Barabak, who disagreed with Halperin while on the panel, what he thinks of the honor bestowed on his colleague.

“Worst person in the world? Wow.” Barabak wrote us. “I can think of a lot more even worster people. Especially those who send ungrammatical email.”

Indeed.
