Don’t (Bumber)shoot!

From THE Reliable Source at The Washington Post:

Celebrities: Don’t get into a fight with anyone carrying a video camera. It’s the newest weapon in the ideological arsenal, and never ends well.

On Wednesday night, Bill O’Reilly shoved a camera-wielding man with his umbrella while on his way to a White House holiday party. The Fox News star upped the stakes by telling a nearby policeman he wanted to press charges against the protester. Within hours, it was all on YouTube, fodder for his critics across the Web.

Which is pretty much the point of videorazzi: Show the target in an embarrassing light.

…snip…

O’Reilly’s case was a little different because Brendan Lane didn’t plan to ambush him. Lane, a paid organizer for Wisconsin Jobs Now, was filming outside the Willard Hotel Wednesday because Newt Gingrich was holding a fundraiser inside. Someone spotted O’Reilly on the sidewalk, and Lane jogged through the pouring rain to catch up.

“Leave me alone right now,” warned O’Reilly. Lane asked, “Mr. O’Reilly, were you at Gingrich’s fundraiser?” He wasn’t, it turns out — but that’s when O’Reilly knocked Lane into the street with his umbrella and taunted, “Hey, sorry about that.”

It’s time to play the music! It’s time to light the lights! It’s time to meet the Commies on the Muppet Show tonight!

From RICHARD ROEPER at the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES:

After multiple viewings of the now-infamous Fox Business Network’s take on the new “Muppets” movie, I can come to only one conclusion.

Bonkers. They’re bonkers.

In a segment on “Follow the Money,” FBN’s Eric Bolling paired up with Dan Gainor of the right-wing Media Research Center to deliver a report that seemed straight out of “Saturday Night Live.”

“Liberal Hollywood depicting a businessman as evil, that’s not new,” said Bolling. “Dan, let’s point this out, this oil muppet, evil man that he is, is called Tex Richman.”

Gainor: “Yeah, it’s amazing how far the left will go just to stoop, to manipulate your kids, to convince them, to give [them] an anti-corporate message, I mean . . .”

Bolling: “I’ll put it out there. Is liberal Hollywood using class warfare to kind of brainwash our kids?”

Bolling asked that with a straight face. And he wasn’t even wearing a tinfoil hat.

Don’t Meet the Press

From SF Gate at the San Francisco Chronicle:

Last week after his “disastrous” interview with Fox News (and that’s according to Foxie Juan Williams), and his wah-wahhing to Fox’s Bret Baier that it was “overly aggressive,” GOP prez candidate Mitt Romney was pressed on why he doesn’t do more interviews.

Oh, pshaw, Mitt told the traveling press as he avoided their questions. We do avails “almost every day.”

…snip…

“Almost” in the Mittionary doesn’t include California, where Mitt will be the recipient Wednesday of some hard-earned Golden State campaign gold. On that day, he’ll be in lovely Burlingame for a $2,500 to $25,000-a-person fundraiser. But, says Team Mitt spokesman Ryan Williams tells us, he won’t be talking to those who don’t have a ticket:

“We do not have a media avail scheduled around this trip,” Williams said.

Idiocy Quotient

From SPIEGEL ONLINE INTERNATIONAL:

The US Republican race is dominated by ignorance, lies and scandals. The current crop of candidates have shown such a basic lack of knowledge that they make George W. Bush look like Einstein. The Grand Old Party is ruining the entire country’s reputation.

They Report, They Decide?

From News Hounds:

Bret Baier visited The O’Reilly Factor tonight to discuss his somewhat contentious interview with Mitt Romney the day before. Apparently, Romney was not pleased and complained that Baier was overly aggressive. Contentious interview with a Republican candidate? A discussion on the top-rated O’Reilly about it in which Baier suggests Romney is a sissy? Is Fox throwing its weight behind its former contributor Newt Gingrich – who, it just so happens, had an hourlong lapdog interview with Hannity tonight? Or is Baier really trying to be fair and balanced with tough questions?

You’re a dimwit, Megyn Kelly

From Doug Molitor at THE HUFFINGTON POST:

Fox News’s Megyn Kelly thinks cops pepper-spraying unresisting prisoners isn’t so bad, because after all, it’s “a food product, essentially.”

My advice to Megyn would be first, to spell her name with a normal vowel.

…snip…

My second bit of advice would be not to eat out for a while. Definitely not at any restaurant where the waiters aren’t her fellow one-percenters.

I hope your Thanksgiving was peppered with happiness!

And I hope you didn’t have to eat at Megyn Kelly’s house.
