More Undignified and Uneccessary Rosie Hate From Bill O'Reilly
Reported by Deborah - April 18, 2007 -
Dennis Miller appeared on The Factor for his weekly spot tonight and his comments about Virginia Tech were both dignified and sensitive. O'Reilly just couldn't let the segment be hate free bringing Rosie O'Donnell into the conversation and then distorting an interview she gave in 2002. 4/18/07
Miller said he isn't listening to anyone at this point who claims to have the answers about the tragedy. He spoke of the many signals given by the killer and never picked up. O'Reilly dropped his chip for a moment to discuss the failure of the system that didn't provide the mental illness records to the gun check database.
The discussion was appropriate and not divisive but O'Reilly couldn't leave well enough alone.First he commented that " secular progressives don't acknowledge evil" Then he
jumped in with Bernard Goldberg's comment last night that liberals started talking about gun control seconds after the last shot and pointed a finger at " Rosie O'Donnell and her ilk."
He showed a clip of Rosie O'Donnell in 2002 saying she had a bodyguards with guns and thought all guns should be licensed adding after Columbine she said that guns should be banned. O'Reilly cut the clip at this point without revealing what she said after that point because he wanted to make a point that O'Donnell was anti gun. However, she goes on
after that point to say she had changed her mind since Columbine and admits she went to an extreme in reaction to the violence at Columbine.
O'Reilly didn't get Miller to jiump on the bash wagon. Miller said he wasn't going to judge or get into "all that crap" making O'Reilly look very foolish, petty and childish.
