O'Reilly: We Don't Do Personal Attacks

Reported by Deborah - February 23, 2006

Bill O'Reilly just wanted a chance to talk to Mike Farrell about those treacherous Hollywood types who sling personal attacks at innocent and upstanding public servants like himself. Farrell wouldn't play the game properly tonight and even dared to start down a dangerous path so who could blame O'Reilly for abruptly ending the segment by cutting to news in the middle of the conversation. 2/23/06

O'Reilly opened the segment sitting next to a poster with a very large image of a marijuana leaf as he described the far left culture with their "unfettered abortions". He praised Mike Farrell for never stooping to personal attacks a topic that seems to concern him in an obsessive way.

He asked Farrell about gay marriage claiming that they have a lot of money behind them. Farrell said his marriage is not threatened by two people who love each other marrying adding that the opposition is fueled by fear and homo phobia.

The topic turned to the death penalty which both Farrell and O'Reilly oppose. O'Reilly said that he advocates hard labor. Farrell countered that being separated from society is very difficult. Bill quipped, "Even if you lift weights?"

Then he tried to get Farrell to point fingers. O'Reilly asked him why he didn't attack people personally and did he object when others did? Farrell said he didn't see the point in those kinds of attacks but people have the right. Then he said something like "As you know" the attacks can work.

O'Reilly: We don't do personal attacks!
Farrell: You do...
O'Reilly: No we don't

O'Reilly's last word could be heard as the screen changed into FOX News Headlines. It was very abrupt and certainly not a natural ending with the usual pleasant exchanges. Of course, O'Reilly will deny that he cut Farrell off.
Later while he talked to Drew Carey he mentioned Farrell's "little slip" implying that all was forgiven.
