O'Reilly Attacks Moyers

We've all seen FOX go after Jeremiah Wright and then smear Barack Obama by association. So it was no big surprise to watch Bill O'Reilly attack Bill Moyers for allowing Wright the opportunity to speak openly and defend himself. O'Reilly calls Moyers that "far left PBS guy" and "pathetic." He suggests that Moyers should take a long vacation to Iran with Wright and Louis Farrakhan, and then he brings on Newt Gingrich in some sort of slanderous tag team.

But the real reason O'Reilly's latest smear was so predictable is that Moyers is the complete antithesis of O'Reilly. Not only do the two stand at opposite ends of the political spectrum, but Moyers also represents journalistic integrity, accuracy, and insight; he gives his guests like Wright the chance to speak for themselves. O'Reilly, by contrast, has gotten famous from bullying guests, telling them to shut up, cutting their mics, and using his show to espouse hate and lies.

And this clip is just O'Reilly's reaction to advance excerpts from Moyers's interview. Wonder what O'Reilly will talk about Monday night?
