The debate over torture is getting personal for two of cable TV’s hosts.

After Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity made a seemingly impromptu offer last week to undergo waterboarding as a benefit for charity, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann leaped at it. He offered $1,000 to the families of U.S. troops for every second Hannity withstood the technique. Olbermann repeated the offer on Monday’s show and said in an interview Tuesday that he would continue to pursue the matter.

Fox News Channel representatives did not respond to requests for comment.
