    I think Ted's toupe is too tight, and old age is giving him Dan Rather Disease.

    either that or he is disguisted by the direction that the American media has gone.

    Isn't he one of the liberal cheerleaders also? Is he really disguisted by himself?

    Corporate media is bad for America. The model has created an anti-intellectual, sensationalistic, and divisive product.

    However, they are not the ones to blame. It's driven by consumer demand and perpetuated by corruption. It's a vicious cycle.

    That was my take on it though OReilly seemed to be reacting to some specific slam on Fox News.

    In that short clip, OReilly (whose views I usually align with) came off as a self-aggrandizing doosh. If he was trying to be funny, it didnt work. He only made Koppel a sympathetic character.

    What OReilly seems to miss is that his delivery very often overshadows his message....which plays into Koppels argument that the dooshes on both ends of the political spectrum have taken center stage at the expense of moderation.

    At least I think thats what that pansy-lib, raisin-faced, toupe'd-dwarf was blabbering on about.
