O'Reilly and Rove are Crazy, Say the Economic Crisis Is Just a Media Conspiracy

[Full transcript below.]

If Bill O'Reilly and Karl Rove say it, it must be true -- because they are, I don't have to tell you, well-known truth-sayers.

So everyone go out and spend your dosh like it's going out of style, and, if you should hear rumors of cutbacks at your job, don't listen to them. It just means your boss is in cahoots with Big Media.

And if you get laid off, it probably means you are. Dirty conspirator.
