Continuing with the FOX News theme of this week, here is another Bill O'Reilly classic:
Bill O'Reilly began a segment of Westwood One's The Radio Factor by saying that "Al Qaeda is not the most intense threat to your freedom -- it's the American Civil Liberties Union." From the March 30 edition of The Radio Factor:
O'REILLY: All right, this hour's devoted to the most intense threat to your freedom in the world. It's not Al Qaeda. Al Qaeda is not the most intense threat to your freedom -- it's the American Civil Liberties Union. And I will back up what I say.
I actually think O'Reilly has been getting worse recently, if that's possible. On March 29 he implied that gay marriage would lead to marriage between people and goats, and that he needed bodyguards because of New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and "the far left." These comments can all be found at the above link to Media Matters.
And here's the audio version -- highly recommended.
