Current TV host Keith Olbermann is once again suspending his “Worst Person in the World” segment, this time in response to the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy. Olbermann says he is ending the segment “possibly permanently” after conservative commentators responded to Limbaugh’s remarks by pointing out offensive things Olbermann said about women.

“Personally there is overall quality of apples to oranges here,” the Current host said, before explaining his comments and his decision to suspend the segment.
