Speaking of Media Matters

from Media Matters for America

FOX News host Bill O'Reilly lashed out at Media Matters for America and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on the December 9 Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly. He called Media Matters "the most vile, despicable human beings in the country"; called the ADL "an extremist group that finds offense in pretty much everything"; and labeled ADL president Abraham Foxman "a nut."

The controversy began when Media Matters highlighted a remark that O'Reilly made to a Jewish caller on his December 3 radio show, and ADL president Abraham Foxman wrote to O'Reilly in protest.


O'Reilly claimed on his December 9 radio show that "the write-ups about this didn't put any of it in context." In fact, Media Matters' original item included the full text and audio of the December 3 exchange. O'Reilly added that the "write-ups" "didn't say it was about Christmas," apparently suggesting that if the public knew that O'Reilly was talking about Christmas when he told a caller to "go to Israel," the remark would seem less offensive.

I guess falafel boy doesn't like it too much when someone actually takes notice of something he says.
