Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

have I mentioned letterman rules?

you have to watch this (via hammer of truth)

I don't think I have ever seen dave be that tough on someone who he was debating ...um...I mean interviewing.

I guess bill just brings that out in some people.

Of course, that was a conservative estimate...no pun intended.

to O'reilly's credit, Dave doesn't even watch his show. He bases his opnions on what he reads about Bill. probably from shitty newspapers like the NY Times.
Dave is a hippocrit. Him and the rest of hollywood try to kiss up to their audience by thinking I'm a leftie listen to me.
Fuck you Dave

Actually, araider, Letterman just has a finely-tuned bullshit detector. If O'Reilly wants to be coddled, he should go on Leno.

Strider and Gabe, thanks for the clip. I missed the show when I was out sick and had been planning to find a clip.

araider,
I'm not sure why Dave not watching O'Reilly is a credit to O'Reilly. Seems to me it's a credit to Dave, but that's neither here nor there.

I do sometimes watch O'Reilly and here's my take.

By comparison to Bill - who routinely calls people despicable names, throws insane tantrums, browbeats people, and threatens to have them thrown out of the studio - Dave was the picture of propriety. In addition, he admitted his limitations in debating the issue, something that I'm fairly confident Bill has never admitted, although it is painfully true.

The ONLY redeeming thing I heard from Bill was that everyone, including Cindy Sheehan, has the right to an opinion. So here's mine.

Bill O'Reilly is a vacuous asshat, too enamored of his own voice, who wouldn't know a decent interview if it smacked him on his naked ass with a loofa sponge.

But that's just my opinion.

Have a nice day.

Well I can tell this is a liberal circle jerk but I'll see if I can't throw in a comment.

"I'm not sure why Dave not watching O'Reilly is a credit to O'Reilly. Seems to me it's a credit to Dave, but that's neither here nor there."

If you wish to declare to someone's face (specifically an opinion journalist) that 60% of what they say is crap, you better be prepared to back your mouth up. I don't give Al Franken the time of day, and if we got into a discussion, it would be out of line, for me to declare that 60% of what he says is crap because I ignore him to the point that I would be unable to back up my comment.

Bill MAY BE a jerk, but Dave's comment was out of line. Period.
