Thank you Keith Olbermann for moving this story one more notch up the news and entertainment media agenda. Can SNL be far behind?

    Transcript available here on MSNBC’s site, for those who need it. Search for “Wakefield” within the page.

    worst person? dunno.

    most irresponsible? well… definitely in the twenty most irresponsible people in the world.

    Yeah, I think there is a dis-knighted guy somewhere by a cholera outbreak that could actually be worse if one looks at the scope of their direct impact.

    But of course Wakefield at least deserves an honorable mention for worst, as his MMR scare mongering has also resulted in losses beyond reason.
