MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann is being taken to task for likening one of the country’s top First Amendment lawyers to a Nazi collaborator, B&C reports.
The First Amendment Advisory Council of the Washington-based Media Institute called on Olbermann to apologize to lawyer Floyd Abrams, who is Jewish.
Olbermann on Jan. 21 criticized Abrams’ stand on the recent Citizen’s United Supreme Court decision allowing corporations to spend more on campaign ads, and made the analogy. The Council called it “vile” and “beyond comprehension.”
MSNBC had no immediate comment, B&C said.
