Something to keep in mind if confronted by an O'Reilly Factor stalker-producer
If you find yourself confronted by one of Bill O'Reilly's stalker-producers demanding to know why you won't answer Factor questions, explain to him that you refuse to answer questions from a program that dishonors the service of military veterans by attempting to minimize the plight and existence of homeless veterans.
In about the middle portion of this segment, Olbermann explains O'Reilly's latest attempt to bend reality to his will in an effort to discredit the economic message of John Edwards.*
*In the final bit of this clip, Olbermann attacks O'Reilly over his sexual harassment law suit. While this may generate ratings, it isn't all that intellectually honest. O'Reilly had raised the issue of potential Edwards campaign funds being used as hush money and Olbermann used that as an opportunity to bring up O'Reilly's settlement. This is non sequitur.
