The O'Reilly Video CBS Doesn't Want You to See...

This little ditty is a remix of the video that surfaced Monday, in which O'Reilly has a meltdown on "Inside Edition." The original O'Reilly video sparked a bit of a to-do because CBS had YouTube remove it from their site, leaving many blogs with dead links. I myself ended up with an error message to the effect of: "This video is no longer available due to copyright claim by CBS Broadcasting, Inc."

CBS does have a copyright claim because they own King World Productions (now CBS Distribution), which created "Inside Edition" originally. Of course, the more CBS intervened, the more the video spread. As you can see on this YouTube search, the video is now all over the place. So was CBS's copyright enforcement bullshit from the start? Didn't they realize this video was so juicy that determined bloggers would circumvent copyright restrictions? Or was CBS under pressure from O'Reilly or FOX?

Now that the O'Reilly video is out there, keep spreading it. You can also download the remixed song for free. And, for more hilarity, check out Colbert's take on all of this.
