GE calls Fox report `maliciously false'

August 13, 2009 5:30:50 AM PDT
General Electric Co. says a Fox News Channel report about the company supplying terrorists with material used in bombs is "irresponsible and maliciously false." It's the first time that GE, the parent company of NBC News and MSNBC, has publicly responded to accusations made by O'Reilly on his Fox show.

Meantime, the feud between Fox's Bill O'Reilly and MSNBC's Keith Olbermann kept sizzling.

Olbermann named O'Reilly one of his "worst persons in the world" on Tuesday's show. The two men have taken their feud to a new level ever since an Aug. 1 report in The New York Times that corporate officials had encouraged them to cool things down.

GE spokesman Gary Sheffer said he was surprised by the report, given O'Reilly's admission that he could not confirm GE's involvement.
