(Newser) – Keith Olbermann isn’t letting up as he pushes Sean Hannity to follow through on an offer to be waterboarded for charity, the AP reports. On his show Monday, the MSNBC host again urged his Fox rival to make good on the pledge, though how serious Hannity was isn't clear. Olbermann said yesterday he still hasn’t heard back from Hannity: “I don't think he has the courage to even respond to this—let alone do it.”

“The idea of putting somebody in a position they have volunteered for, for charity, to respond to their own unsupportable claims, is in many ways priceless,” Olbermann said.
