Every night at 8 p.m. on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann awards his daily pick for "Worst Person in the World." On Friday, April 6th, he made "Worst Person" history with a first-ever "Best Person in the World" award.

On Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" Thursday night, host Bill O'Reilly exchanged heated words with Geraldo Rivera over a drunk driving case. A man— an illegal immigrant— was charged with manslaughter after crashing into another car in Virginia Beach. Two teenage girls were killed. On his broadcast, O'Reilly used the tragic deaths to make a point about illegal immigration. Rivera argued that O'Reilly shouldn't be turning a drunken driving tragedy into an illegal immigration issue.

For the record, the father of one of the girls killed by a drunk driver attended a news conference in Virginia Beach last night, at which he said, "We need to heal. And to bring immigration, that's disrespectful to a family who's just mourning."


And relative to our segment here... tonight, for the first and possibly the last time ever...

We declare Geraldo Rivera, today's “Best Person in the World”!
