Set the VCR - It's O'Reilly vs Krugman

Reported by Marie Therese - August 6, 2004 -

On yesterday's O'Reilly Factor host Bill O'Reilly yet again defended himself and FOX News against what has apparently become a torrent of criticism from other media outlets. (A more complete article on this will be posted later today.)

O'RIELLY (8:37 PM EDT): "The attacks on the FOX News Channel increase and so do our ratings. The more they attack us, the more people watch. But, it is my opinion that some of these defamatory charges must be confronted."

"Now you may remember a couple of weeks ago I called out the editors of the New York Times because that newspaper is printing every kind of libel against FOX News. The editors hid under their desks. But far left columnist, Paul Krugman, did agree to debate me on the Tim Russert CNBC program and you can see that this weekend and it's quite something."

He then showed a fairly tame clip but CNBC has been showing a considerably spicier one today.

According to the CNBC website "Tim Russert" will be broadcast at 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM EDT on Saturday, August 7th.

Break out the popcorn and watch O'Reilly & Krugman go head-to-head!
