Faux News hoser and television personality Bill O’Reilly went on an epic tirade during an interview with Hugh Hewitt about the criticism he has been getting from other reporters about his handling of an interview he did with President Obama.
Washington Post political columnist Dana Milbank wrote Monday:

“Along the way, he interrupted the president 42 times, by my count,” Milbank wrote, “although, given the amount O’Reilly spoke, it may be more accurate to say Obama was interrupting him. Sometimes he argued with Obama as though the president were a guest on ‘The O’Reilly Factor.’ Of the 2,500 words uttered during the interview, O’Reilly spoke nearly 1,000 of them.”[/box]
As reported by Talking Points Memo, O’Reilly called Milbank a “weasel” who is “beneath contempt” and wondered on what grounds the Post could employ “a guy like that.”
“You know, the far left kooks like this nut at the Washington Post, Milbank, well, he’s a dishonest man, Milbank,” O’Reilly fumed. “You know, he says the interview was nasty. Did you think it was nasty?”
You can almost hear O’Reilly stamping his foot and envision his bottom lip jutting out. “The Washington Post editors,” he whined, “if they watched the interview, which God knows if they did or not, had to know that Milbank was lying. And they had to know that he was lying for a reason, that he’s a far left zealot. It’s okay to be a liberal columnist, but once you cross the line into lying to promote what you want, then the paper’s got to take action.”
