Tucker Carlson takes down O'Reilly

Tucker Carlson loses the bow tie, gains an attitude, and takes on Bill O'Reilly.

In this clip from Carlson's Beat the Press segment, he berates O'Reilly for comments he made on a July 26 radio broadcast. O'Reilly goes on an angry tirade, stating that the U.S. isn't winning in Iraq because Fallujah was not 'leveled.' Then he says (the always comical) 'i'm an intellectual' followed by 'you're not gonna win the war by being macho.'

Can you say hypocrite? Carlson can:


"Let's see, the solution in Iraq is just level it, turn it into a parking lot, an ice rink, just kill everybody, knock every building down, pulverize it to dust. On the other hand, macho solutions are no solutions. This is what happens when cable news does foreign policy. Bill O'Reilly, he's an intellectual."
