    Contrast O'Reilly with most talk shows or panels on your local PBS station, or with Charlie Rose or Bill Moyers. The latter are engaged in serious discussion, the former is mainly trying to stir up his audience. It sells.
    I can't believe this!! Matclone is denouncing someone who appeals to emotion rather than reason!! This must be one of the biggest flip-flops in the history of the earth. All of matclone's posts have been about emotion and how bad people feel when their homes are foreclosed, how advertising sucks people in with emotion, and how lenders are predatory with emotion.

    I'm very glad to see that matclone has seen thel ight and understands that emotion must take a back seat to objectivity. Matclone, this is how it feels to think like a conservative.

    Remember that free speech works both ways. Just as someone has the right to say something derogative toward our country, others have the right not to like it.

    All these people are ego maniacs. I've seen a lot worse than that, including my wrestling coach that used to throw a 5-pound wad of janitor keys at you (in practice) if you didn't work hard enough. This was back in the days when you had to go 90-minutes w/o water and fresh air in the wrestling room. Never ever a drop of water or fresh air from the door cracks. omg....

    I've seen similar tirades from Bill Clinton getting heckled during speeches; of course, he didn't use the F-word, but his face got just as red, and his voice was just as angry.

    What does Bill Clinton getting heckled have to do with the topic at hand?

    Because of his boyish good looks? Or the way his eyes twinkle when he is spewing unresearched hate?

    I don't know. B.O. had a temper tantrum 15-years ago and it's news today?

    My point was not that BC got heckled -- but that even the great Bill Clinton has temper tantrums when things don't go his way. Everyone does ....
    I thought BC was going to behead Chris Wallace a few months ago on Fox News.

    However, if you think my BC reference doesn't have any merit whatsoever, I completely retract and denounce everything. Are you happy now?
