The Height of Hypocrisy
I'm sorry, but the audacity/ hypocrisy here is palpable. This, I'm saying, in that you actually have the nerve to go on national television and accuse other news organizations of selective and partisan political reporting. I mean, come on, Mr. O'Reilly, when was the last time your "spin-free"/ "fair and balanced" program did a hard-hitting report on the 2 million Iraqi refugees, the recently exposed tawdry conditions at the Walter Reed hospital (way to support the troops, Bill), the increasingly lowered standards of the military relative to recruitment, the Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan, the fact that only 30% of Iraqi kids currently attend school, the military cover-up concerning Pat Tillman's death, etc., etc.? Huh, not that any of these stories are as important as Britney Spears or Anna Nicole Smith, mind you, but their absence seems to, I'm saying, underscore a certain "the pot calling the kettle black" mentality of sorts. In fact, I'd even go as far as to say that it wreaks - dishonesty, etc.. Hell, you haven't even covered the Scooter Libby trial, for Christ!!!
