Russell Simmons: ‘I think the media is nutty’

During our 50-minute interview with Russell Simmons last week — for an upcoming MediaBeat interview — the music, media and fashion mogul talked about his friendship with politically polar opposite FoxNewsers including Rogers Ailes, Sean Hannity and Mike Huckabee. So what does he think about MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann? ”They think he’s nutty on the left, I’m far to the left of him.”

The full interview will run on the mediabistro blog network and MediaBeat.com beginning Jan. 31.
