Just Say No

“The sun goes up, the sun goes down. The tide goes in, the tide goes out.” Bill O’Reilly

From Tell President Obama: No Super Bowl interview with O'Reilly:

Bill O'Reilly's outrageous opinions and willful disregard for the truth have been at the heart of some of FOX News' most shameful moments.
So why is President Obama granting O'Reilly an exclusive pre-Super Bowl interview?

This blockbuster interview legitimizes O'Reilly, and legitimizes his hateful opinions as actual journalism -- the last thing President Obama should do on the biggest television day of the year.
Bill O’Reilly is entitled to his opinion. Bill O’Reilly is not civil. Bill O’Reilly is arrogant. Bill O’Reilly is ignorant.

The fact that Bill O’Reilly is ignorant is what really bothers me about the Obama interview. Obama deserves better, and the nation deserves better. Will Bill tell the president to “shut up” if Obama tells him why “the tide goes in, the tide goes out?”
