Sneak Preview: Media Matters gets hands on O'Reilly's book

Can we all just be embarrassed for the guy and quit picking on him? I mean, doesn't he have his hands full trying to extend the War on Christmas to include Summer and Autumn?

The man's audience is terribly old and fading and nobody loses popularity well. Just go to the deli and visit the quarterback of your high school -- you know, the guy that used to have all that blonde hair?

Anyway, despite O'Reilly's nyah nyah in the clip to the upper right, Media Matters got its hands on a his new book due out Monday, September 25.

O'Reilly was apparently going the Path to 9/11 route and only offering review copies to conservative fellow-travelers in the hope of gaming the press. And he will.

Hugh Hewitt and Sean Hannity and others will give it glowing reviews...

Loyalists will read the book, find their conclusions corroborated and scream at the TV screen about that biased Rosie O'Donnell and the conspiracy to turn their kids gay.

Media Matters writes:

Media Matters for America's review of Culture Warrior shows the book to be replete with factual errors, rank hypocrisy, and ad hominem attacks directed at anyone who has crossed swords with O'Reilly.
