He looked uninformed.He doesn't know a Senator doesn't oversee a House committee? He had egg on his face.

AC ran circles around BO. He hadn't read the book. There are ways he could have asked a tough civility question, but he didn't do it.

Thanks for the post.

COULTER: He had nothing to do HUAC. You see, this is part of the myth. I -- I'm -- it's not -- everyone says this -- everyone says HUAC[House], Joe McCarthy.[Senator]..

O'REILLY: All right. I don't want to debate McCarthy, he's dead, and....

COULTER: Well, OK, but, look, that's how powerful the myth is. I'm responding to the blackening of a man's name, and people say, oh, that's mean.

Coulter stuck it in O'Reilly's commie-defending ear.

I received her book for my birthday just before we went on a camping trip. I read it in 3 sittings.

How could he have her as a guest and not ask her about the communists in the defese department? Even if all he did was read the title of the chapter..."Were there Communist Agents in the Defense Department?"

The parallel universe she created, highlighting the positions now held by Karl Rove and Andy Card, the IMF, Rumsfeld's aids...he could have had some real substance but he went for confrontation defending a coke head.Pitiful.

>>...O'REILLY: I know, but he's a liberal. Do you hate -- not hate him, but do you demean what he says?

COULTER: No, some of my best friends are traitors....<<

LOL!!!!! That one's the best!

A weird interview. Never heard of Kate Moss. I take that back, I must have heard of her because I read Treason . That is how important she is to what Coulter wrote.

All in all, a sad performance by O'Reilly. If Bill had not moved on so fast when Coulter caught him on HUAC, I would have thought that a set-up.

O'Reily will not be inviting her on any more. Reading this makes him look like a left wing ideologue.


Looks like O'Reily found out what it means to be in the no spin zone.

There are no such things as talk shows anymore. All we have now are guests trying to speak while the host interrupts every other word.

O'Reilly is a moron, but his show is nevertheless entertaining. Why people call him a "conservative" is quite beyond my comprehension. He is more along the lines of the late Gov. Bob Casey, ideologically speaking.

I didn't see this particular interview, but I hear the two of them as I read the transcript.

The clipped, machine-gun style of O'Really never did anything for me but create a frustration that demands a complete sentence.

Neither O'Really nor his guest (whomever) really says much of anything because of his style.

That being said, O'Really never interviewed Ann and Ann never got off the ground in any thing being suggested.

I hate O'Really and Ann should never had agreed to this.

As I read the transcript, Ann cannot get started and ultimately (to the O'Reallians) looks foolish.

O'Reilly's head is swelling so much with arrogance, he must carry his always right card with him he hates to be challenged. I love him, bless his soul but sometimes I can't take his chutzpah.

I'm glad I never watch O'Rielly anymore.

He thinks he can burn the candle from both ends.

He thinks he can be a right-wing liberal, incongruent as that sounds.

Sound's like O'Reilly is a little jealous; maybe her honesty is disconcerting to him, he most definitely was "spinning" this time.
I don't like the way Bill treats bible believing Christians; but what can you expect from a moderate?

I agree with knarf....I thought that from what I read that she must have nailed his arrogance....wasn't the case at all. She didn't have a chance to even say anything of substance.

And, by his selection of the e-mails tonight, about his "interview" of Ann Coulter, O'Reilly again - AGAIN - showed himself to be a very, very small man indeed.

He's nothing more than a loud mouth piece of excrement.

O'Reilly is a blowhard. I get his radio show in the afternoons here and his arrogance and leftest liberal leanings comes through. He doesn't let his guests speak at times, rude would be the word. Today he had Jabba the Hut speak and Jabba was as uninformed as O'Reilly was with Ann.

I agree.

Bill's ego is starting to get the better of him.

He's coming to work unprepared.

He went to law screwl - he should know better than to ask a quesiton that he doesn't already know the answer.

Let me see - Bill O'Reilly is objecting to Ann hitting people in the nose to make a point.

Nothing hypocritical about that. Nope. Not a thing.

The funniest part of the exchange was when she exposed his ignorance on McCarthy, and he had this to say:

O'REILLY: All right. I don't want to debate McCarthy, he's dead, and.... (Of course you don't, Bill...especially after what she just did to you. I thought you were an ex-history teacher or something.)

Point. Set. Match to Ann Coulter.

Why people call him a "conservative" is quite beyond my comprehension.

My guess is because he doesn't always toe the DNC line. Especially when that line is a day late and a trillion
dollars short of reality.

Then again, he's been known to beat a blip in the social fabric completely out of proportion and chase viewers to other venues.

Thanks for posting this. O'Reilly is sometimes good, but he can be such a pompous ass. I roared when he tripped himself up on the HUAC reference. It was clear then that he had NOT read Ann's book. If there is ANY point that someone would take away after reading the book, it was that McCarthy was in the Senate and had nothing to do with HUAC. She only makes that point about a dozen times. O'Reilly had read nothing more than a few cue cards handed to him by his producer. LOL!

COULTER: ... known as Senator McCarthy

The transcript shows crosstalk when she landed the knockout blow... Here it is with the word Senator emphasized, the way she actually said it, dripping with sarcasm.
"There is a reason he was known as Senator McCarthy"

Nice to see all the peole who used to be faithful viewers like us backing off his show. I can't stand his arrogant, brash, better and holier than thou attitude anymore. It's old, borish and there are other people out there who are right while he is wrong. He talks over people and interrupts. He's rude and we don't watch him anymore. He's lost us as viewers and obviously from what we read he's lost a lot of former viewers. His success has gone to his head.

Rush Limbaugh is the greatest. He knows his facts. He doesn't bash people liek OR does. Rush is polite unlike Bill. I listen to Rush only and then Brit Hume that's it!!!
