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.

Fox News bulldog Bill O'Reilly continues his war on the War on Christmas (It's Christmas at Ground Zero?). O'Reilly suggested the city of Madison, Wisconsin is in league with the devil or more specifically, "Madison, Wisconsin, where you expect those people to be communing with Satan."
O'Reilly has been attacking people who attack him. In this case David Adelman of Forbes.com and Jackson Bain, formerly of NBC news. They wrote editorials and O'Reilly was not pleased.
He made the comments in a discussion with Forbes.com executive editor David Adelman and former NBC correspondent Jackson Bain about editorials critical of his Christmas crusade. O'Reilly was particularly upset at a December 3 Richmond Times-Dispatch editorial, which wrote of "war on Christmas" promoters such as O'Reilly: "What planet do these Scrooges inhabit?"
He also said the city of Sagninaw, Michigan wouldn't allow people to wear red and green. The city obviously denied this:
As Media Matters for America noted, O'Reilly targeted another Midwestern town on the December 9 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, The Radio Factor, falsely claiming that Saginaw, Michigan, "opposes red and green clothing on anyone." His assertion was vehemently denied by township officials; the township hall is adorned in red and green lights.
Also, keep in mind O'Reilly was voted by MSNBC's Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person in the World" award. I hope he mails him a trophy. There are a couple of stories at Media Matter that should explain things a bit
The point is, O'Reilly doesn't work in the "spin zone," he lives in his own "spin reality." The reason O'Reilly is successful because he's loud and he's a bully to his guests and apparently everyone else. I don't respect him or his opinion. I respect his right to have one and to say it but I sure wish he's shut his yap.
