Making a list, checking it twice

Bill O'Reilly, ardent defender of Jesus, now has his own enemies list.

A Message from Bill: Media Operations that Traffic in Defamation

The following media operations have regularly helped distribute defamation and false information supplied by far left websites:

- New York Daily News

- The St. Petersburg Times


These are the worst offenders. In the months to come, we expect to add more names to this list. We recommend that you do not patronize these operations and that advertisers do the same. They are dishonest and not worth your time and money.

How simply adorable! Unhelpfully, O'Reilly doesn't bother to explain why, exactly, these places are 'defaming' him, so I guess we'll just have to take him at his word that we will no longer be able to enjoy our absolute favoritist evening host Rita Cosby whose staff was "simply buzzing" the other day about interviewing non-has-beens like Dennis Rodman.

I'm intrigued that Bill hasn't provided a bigger link to this hideous defamation on his main web page. Just wander around, the only way you can get to it is if you click on "About Bill" and then scroll down to "Media Defamation." (which immediately made me wonder whether some evil anti-American was defaming the media)

BONUS: And check out Bill's favorite books. The Quiet American? Interesting choice. And how about favorite films? Shampoo? Saturday Night Fever? Easy Rider? We're seeing a theme, methinks.
