Rep. Michele Bachmann Says MSNBC Hosts Are ‘Stalkers,’ One of them Responds

On “The O’Reilly Factor” last night, Minnesota GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann talked about having “personal stalkers” alluding to certain, though unnamed, MSNBC anchors.

O’Reilly: “Does it bother you that NBC News is using its cable arm to make your life difficult?”

Bachmann: “You know, not really I grew up with three bothers and that’s the best preparation for politics that anyone can have.”

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann responds to TVNewser, “Having had an actual stalker myself, I think the Congresswoman needs to apologize to women (and men) whose lives are blighted and ruined by such terror and threat. Not even in the mildest of senses – of journalists whose aggressiveness might verge colloquially into ‘stalking’ – is she anywhere close to being such a victim.”
