Speaking Truth to Power
Tom Tomorrow has a transcript from last night's "O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News (we distort, you recite). O'Reilly is talking with Jeremy Glick, whose father died in the 9/11 attack on the WTC. Jeremy signed a "Not In Our Name" ad, and O'Reilly is NOT happy about this, accusing Glick of dishonoring his father because he opposes war in Iraq and questioned the war in Afghanistan. After Glick gets in a few facts which are seldom heard on network news (and probably never on FoxNews), O'Reilly is reduced to yelling "Shut up! Shut up!" at Glick and asking his director to turn off Glick's microphone. Along with Rush Limbaugh and William Safire, O'Reilly is one of those most responsible for there still being a double-digit percentage of Americans who believe the blatant lies and deceptions coming out of the Bush administration. But when faced with the truth, well, Bill, you can't handle the truth!
