Bill O'Reilly's Ambush Journalism in 87 Seconds

Reported by Ellen - March 31, 2009 -

John Amato at Crooks and Liars put together this video which is worth more than a thousand words about Bill O'Reilly's sleazy ambush tactics. Amato sums it up nicely: It's all about intimidation plain and simple, and the falafel is now out of the bag. David Neiwert calls it "Gobsmacking," but whatever phrase you want to use, it's very ugly and it is a flagrant abuse of media power. Video after the jump.

Amato's complete post notes other instances of O'Reilly's abusiveness and is well worth reading.
