(Newser) – Glenn Beck has tweeted a call for followers to dig up dirt on Obama administration figures, and Keith Olbermann aims to turn the tables, making a bid for inside info on the Fox News host himself. “Find everything you can about Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Roger Ailes,” he blogs on Daily Kos. The MSNBC host plans to set up a “dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts, on Beck, his radio producer Burguiere, and the chief of his TV enablers, Ailes.”

This, Olbermann writes, is an effort “to prove various cliches about goose and gander, and to remind everybody to walk softly and carry a big popsicle, and most particularly to save this nation from the Oligarhy of The Stupid.”
