Rude and Ignorant


Because Fox carried the Super Bowl today they also were in charge of arranging the traditional game day interview with the President. Bill O'Reilly was given the opportunity. I missed the first few minutes, but what I did see was pretty shocking Eclectablog sums up my reaction fairly well

I've never seen such an unprofessional, disrespectful interview of any President ever.

He constantly cut-off the President.

He constantly interjected his own opinions.

Un-effing-believable.

President Obama was poised and answered O'Reilly's questions intelligently and thoughtfully. I don't know how he was able to do it given the juvenile, completely unprofessional nature of O'Reilly's questions and demeanor but he represented himself very well.

I can only assume the reaction to O'Reilly's behavior will be one of scorn and derision. It deserves nothing more.

The problem with O'Reilly's interview is not that he asked tough questions. Indeed, there are quite a few tough questions he didn't ask that I'd love to hear answered. He treated President Obama with less respect than should be shown a small-town sheriff caught on tape selling drugs to 3rd graders. I predict this shameful performance will further damage the reputation of Fox News among the general public, although wingnuts will applaud the whole thing.

O'Reilly's picture is right next to the word "smarmy" in the dictionary. A true disgrace.
