Letterman vs. O'Reilly

[via Crooks and Liars]

David Letterman didn't try to hide the fact last night that he just plain doesn't like Bill O'Reilly. He wasted no time bashing FOX News and doing what few people can do — ridiculing O'Reillys ratings (Letterman's audience is more than 2x as large .) While sparring over Iraq, Letterman interrupted the giant talking head saying he "doesn't care" what Bill has to say. When Bill O, in typical FAUX form, tried to suggest that Dave believes "Bush is an evil liar" and that "America is a bad country" Letterman comes back with the line of the month:

"You're trying to put words in my mouth just the way you put artificial facts in your head."

For context, here's one of O'Reilly's previous appearances on Letterman:



Letterman: "Im not smart enough to debate you point to point on this but I have the feeling that about 60% of what you say is crap"

Olbermann on Limbaugh's Shameful attack on Michael J. Fox

Follow-up:

Michael J. Fox: "I could give a damn about Rush Limbaugh’s pity or anyone else’s pity. I’m not a victim."



Note this great part of Fox's exchange with Couric:

COURIC: You have said before this is a bipartisan problem that requires a bipartisan solution.

FOX: No, disease is a nonpartisan problem that requires a bipartisan solution.

COURIC: Would you support a Republican candidate?

FOX: I have. Arlen Specter is my guy. I have campaigned for Arlen Specter. He has been a fantastic champion of stem cell research.

Another reason to like Rachael Ray

From last week's Entertainment Weekly:

Entertainment Weekly: Do you ever worry that there can only be so much happiness in the universe, and that every time you smile, a unicorn gets punched in the face?

Rachael Ray:
I would smile all day along, every day, if it guaranteed a unicorn getting punched in the face. I find them really annoying.

Who is Rachael Ray?

Read Bendis' POWERS - free!

Brian Michael Bendis writes good comics. One of my favorites of his is POWERS.


Via MetaFilter:
Brian Michael Bendis is making the entire first run of his popular comic Powers available online, including some of his page scripts and Oeming's layouts. They are posting a page a day (currently at 67). A great (free!) read and interesting look at how it is done.
I think my favorite work of his, though, is TORSO.

Chris Wallace Sucks

http://thinkprogress.org/2006/10/15/wallace-ignores-emails/

Chris Wallace Ignores 20,000 Emails Demanding He Ask Rice About The U.S.S. Cole

WallaceMore than 20,000 people emailed Chris Wallace and demanded he ask Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice this question today:

Prior to 9/11, you had eight months to respond to the al-Qaeda attack on the U.S.S. Cole. Why didn’t the Bush administration take action and put al-Qaeda out of business?

Wallace didn’t ask the question or any question on the topic. It’s the twenty-fourth time Rice has been on Fox News Sunday since 9/11 without being asked about the U.S.S. Cole.

Last month, Fox’s Chris Wallace asked President Clinton why he didn’t respond to the Oct. 12, 2000 bombing of the U.S.S. Cole. He asked the question even though the “CIA and the FBI refused to certify that Bin Laden was responsible” until early 2001, which foreclosed the possibility of a full response during the Clinton administration.

Wallace claimed he asked the question of Clinton because “I got a lot of e-mail from viewers.”
