Bill O'Reilly, Al Franken and George Clooney

Reported by Deborah - November 30, 2007 -

Bill O'Reilly continued complaining about the lack of entertainers visiting Afghanistan last night with guests Connie Stevens and Tom Arnold. So far BOR has been able to avoid mentioning Al Franken's USO visits there and interestingly enough, viewers did not hear either Tom Arnold or USO President, Edmund Powell utter Franken's name during their appearances on The Factor.

Connie Stevens who has been really out of the spotlight lamented the lack of entertainers volunteering for USO tours. Stevens claimed the new generation of entertainers are more selfish and O'Reilly agreed.

Tom Arnold talked about his experiences entertaining the troops in Afghanistan objecting slightly to the suggestion that entertainers are too selfish to go. O'Reilly concluded that the USO needs to be more proactive about recruiting people and once again, Arnold offered a mild objection noting the scheduling issues involved in organizing a tour.

Somehow, O'Reilly thinks he can avoid mentioning Franken's visits to Afghanistan in 2003 or 2006.

During Arnold's brief defense of entertainers last night, he mentioned that some had even faced the danger of going to Darfur. The subject was ignored totally since O'Reilly might have been forced to congratulate George Clooney and Don Cheadle for receiving the prestigious 2007 Peace Summit Award for their work in Darfur.
