O'Reilly, you have hit a new low even for yourself.
You were unprofessional in the extreme in your
"interview" with Jeremy Glick. You couldn't be
bothered to actually discuss or refute Glick's
viewpoints. Instead, you attacked him *through his
father.* How do you pretend to know anything about
Barry Glick's father? How dare you or anyone else
tell this young man what his father would or would not
approve of? Did you personally know Barry Glick?
You then cut him off by telling him you didn't care
what he thought, insulting him and every victim of
9/11 by telling him that "you've done more for the
victims of 9/11 than he would ever hope to do." Did
you forget who you were talking to? This young man
lost his father in the attacks. Who did you lose?
What gives you the right to attack him so viciously
when he espoused opinions different than yours? You
give him about a minute of air time to say his piece
then call him "warped." You even tell this man, to
his face, that you were angrier about his father's
death than he was. The arrogance just steams off of
You add insult to injury by bringing his mother into
it, telling him repeatedly to "shut up," and
hypocritically saying that "in respect for his father"
you wouldn't continue to discuss this with the son.
"Cut his mike. I'm not going to dress you down any
more, in respect for your father."
Who in the hell do you think you are? You pompous,
bloated, miserable little popinjay! You show just how
little you care for the victims of 9/11, just how
little you know about the underlying root causes of
the terrorist attacks, just how little you are able to
actually debate a leftist with a few facts at his
disposal -- instead you retreat to the usual personal
insults, demands to "shut up," and actually pulling
the plug on the guy instead of standing toe to toe
with him. For someone who pretends to be a "standup
guy," when you had the chance to stand up and state
your opinions and assert your worldview in a rational
and sane manner, you sure blew it. You came across as
a little cock-a-whoop who couldn't debate with his
opponent in a straightforward fashion, so you attacked
him, insulted him, and pulled his mike. What a
victory, O'Reilly! Gonna go debate some mutes next?
Are you so insecure in your beliefs that a single
minute of Glick's assertions can cause you to lose
every semblance of rationality and maturity that you
This was by far the most blatantly unprofessional
display of journalism I have ever seen, even on Fox,
which has long since set new lows for journalism
everywhere. You should be ashamed. You should
apologize publicly and profusely. You should invite
Glick and other victims on your show and let them have
their say, unencumbered by insults and demands to
"shut up." You ought to be fired and sent back to
Inside Edition or wherever the hell you came from.
Be a man, O'Reilly. Admit you were wrong in the way
you treated Glick. Do it for all of us to see. We
sure would appreciate it.
