O'Reilly's New Tune

Reported by Ellen - November 29, 2004

A segment of The O'Reilly Factor tonight was devoted to the decreasing relevance of network television. "It's too cautious, that's the problem," O'Reilly said, apparently forgetting that the "real" problem has always been its liberal bias.

Can a network be both too cautious and too biased? I should think one would preclude the other.

O'Reilly also made this less-than-truthful remark: "Even the news magazines on Prime Time - you rarely hear anything about them."

Comment: It's hard to imagine that Bill has already forgotten Memogate, Abu Ghraib and Richard Clarke, all big stories that broke on network television. But as Mr. Loofah himself said tonight, "Why let the facts get in the way of a good soundbite?"
