We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Mad dog Bill O'Reilly sure picks a good fight but he can't take it. He constantly attacks the Media Matters website and their words but he doesn't have the stones to talk to them on his show. Of course, if he did, his face would turn bright red, he would scream loudly, and he would eventually boot them from the show. Check out the video on their website.
I talk to people who say O'Reilly is better than some other conservative commentators and maybe he is in some ways but he's still the loudmouthed bully who can't handle dealing with people coming at him as equaly without yelling. He mistakes frequently. People who call him out he tries to smear. O'Reilly says he's looking out for you? How can a man from a wealthy Long Island family who attended an Ivy League university know what the average working guy thinks? He has no concept of it. He's an elitist jerk just like the rest of them.

To become a partisan pundit on national television; to argue in ad hominem ways, to scream, bully, and reduce political debate to barroom drunkard pre-fight talk; to take political discourse from an active interchange of ideas to advocation of one set of points and assault on the opposing parties - to do all that and then be outraged that others begin to react to you in precisely the same way -
is exactly like a professional boxer who screams "Unfair!" because that other guy in the ring keeps hitting him.

PBS used to, but it's being gutted by the Bush Reich for inciting thought instead of just loud noises.
