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.”
Bachmann, a two-term Congresswoman, made headlines last October during an appearance on “Hardball” when she said, “I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out if they are pro-America or anti-America.”
