Geraldo and Bill O'Reilly screaming match

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

I didn't see the argument so I have no comment on that, but I wanna say that O'Reilly bashing is just so passe. It seems to me that alot of people jumped on the O'Reilly hatin' bandwagon without really taking the time to form an opinion of their own.

Yeah, O'Reilly is a smug bastard who's crying wolf with his culture war and his personal war against what he's classified as "Secular Progressives". And his controversial stance on Cindy Sheehan is backwards.

But those that label him as "evil" is plain ridiculous. I just roll my eyes everytime I flip by Keith Olbermann who consistently has O'Reilly in his "Worst person in the world" countdown.
Everyone has the right to his/her own viewpoint on things, and reality of it is O'Reilly's aren't any more extreme than most.

The exceptional thing about O'Reilly is that he's not even that good at rhetoric but somehow has convinced himself that he is.

In declaring O'Reilly to be sin I was merely paraphrasing Geraldo.
