Wow. Gotta watch this video. Here's a man with over 2 million viewers. He's quite the performer, but I wonder who's writing this script. Does this shit really resonate with some subset of America? Is O'Reilly making it up himself?
My read is that he's pretty egomaniacal so I can't imagine he'd carry water for someone else. However, it's virtually impossible to take what he's saying here seriously, though he certainly seems to.
Nervous breakdown waiting in the wings? Maybe. I dunno. As egomaniacal as he his, I also think he knows he's a performer on some level, so maybe it is all just script to him.

I wanted this stuff for Vagabender but it wasn't quite ready. But it's going to be pretty kick-ass.

Former Kennedy Administration official Joh Seigenthaler had someone post a bio about him on Wikipedia that he took issue with, is pissed he can't sue whoever did it, Wikipedia for letting them do it, and BellSouth for letting whoever it was online.
His initial response was to call the founder of Wikipedia and bitch. Sorry, dude. You monumentally don't understand what's going on here. The good news is soon you'll be dead and won't care.
You'd think someone who has a Chair of Excellence in First Amendment Studies named after him at a university would be a little less sanguine about advocating for prior restraint -- which the Supreme Court has roundly rejected, I might add.
Got the link from Slashdot. Good comment/reply here.
