Watch the Video That Has Bill O'Reilly Shaking in Fear, Hiding Under His Desk

Reported by Marie Therese - April 7, 2005

Last month, Bill O'Reilly went off like a firecracker, excoriating the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) for airing "Sticks and Stones," a scathing expose of bias in the United States media. According to The Toronto Star: "The hour, about the uncivil state of civil discourse in the U.S., generated heated reaction, much of it generated by Fox News loudmouth Bill O'Reilly."

On March 29th the Star published the following at the end of a column by Antonia Zerbisias, reflecting a proposal made to O'Reilly by the CBC: "We have offered O'Reilly a chance to have it out about Canada/U.S. and about CBC/Fox," says [Sticks and Stones] exec producer Dave Studer." (Host Bob McKeown) and O'Reilly would sit down for an hour, face to face. No one would have an advantage - i.e., have control of people's mics. Each show would get copies of all tapes to prepare their own shows as they chose. A month later, we have not heard a single word from them."

Guess Bill would rather count dust bunnies under his desk than face a real interview by a real journalist in a truly free environment!

If you'd like to watch "Sticks and Stones" online, click here: http://www.cbc.ca/fifth/sticksandstones.html. (Reminder: You must register to use the CBC site.)

On the same page, you can also watch the three-minute encounter between Ann Coulter and CBC's Bill McKeown in the now infamous episode where Coulter shows just how ill-informed she is.

After that, why not watch a number of CBC's other fine documentaries online as well? They're also available.
