Keith OlbermannKeith Olbermann did away with one of the most popular -- and divisive -- segments on his MSNBC show Monday night, telling viewers that after Jon Stewart's scolding of cable news at the "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" he was effectively killing "Worst Persons in the World."

"There is an institutionalization of it that may no longer be valid," Olbermann said on 'Countdown.' "That is the 'Worst Persons in the World' segment, which started as a way, of all things, of defending Tucker Carlson. Its satire and whimsy have gradually gotten lost in some anger, so in the spirit of the thing, as of right now, I am unilaterally suspending that segment with an eye towards discontinuing it."
