O'Reilly on O'Reilly on Letterman

Reported by Chrish - October 31, 2006 -

Bill O'Reilly was incensed that David Letterman promoed O'Reilly's appearance on Letterman's show saying "Last time he was on the show I caught him lying. And I said to myself, you better do something, you can't just sit here and let this guy lie..." This unleashed a torrent of hypocrisy from the indignant "journalist" who never seems to notice the irony of his accusations.

"Hostility and lack of info is never a good combination."

"Three days later, when I couldn't reply to him, Letterman promoed my Friday appearance."

(He then ran the clip quoted above and denied that Letterman caught him in a lie.)

O'Reilly then addressed Letterman personally, when Letterman couldn't reply to him, saying:

"There was no lie, sir. (You know when he verbalizes "sir" he's really thinking "you s.o.b.")

"That was cheap. I hope you're man enough (oooooooohh) to give your audience and me the apology we deserve."

O'Reilly continued to call Letterman out, saying he lives in the left-wing precincts, which he's entitled to do, and associates with "far-left hyper-partisan attack dogs" like Al Franken, a.k.a. Stuart Smalley, the king of personal attacks.

The raging hypocrite continues on to say that Letterman doesn't want information, he wants to sing to the choir (no matter how shrill the note) who drink the same Kool-aid - they simply want to demean people with whom they disagree. (Um, like calling them names and questioning their manhood?)

Blah blah blah culture war, behind enemy lines, now everybody knows what Letterman is all about.

It should be noted that the day after his January appearance during which Letterman issued the famous line ""I'm not smart enough to debate you point-for-point on this, but I have the feeling that about 60 percent of what you say is crap" , O'Reilly criticized Letterman and called him "a card-carrying member of the secular progressive movement."

And he wonders why Letterman doesn't take him seriously.
