O'REILLY FACTOR: Bill O'Reilly Fires Back at Jon Stewart on 'Traditional America'
On his show tonight, Bill O'Reilly responded to last Thursday night's episode of The Daily Show, in which Jon Stewart attacked O'Reilly's claims that "traditional America" is over. O'Reilly's explanation raises at least as many questions as his original comments did. He lists off a bunch of positions associated with Obama voters according to exit polls, including equal rights for gays, women and the general notion that countries outside of the U.S. deserve our respect. Then he screamed at the "pinheads at Comedy Central" that "those are not traditional positions." O'Reilly is lamenting the loss of a time in America that hasn't exists for generations, if it ever really existed at all. Unfortunately, with Jon Stewart taking this week off for Thanksgiving, we'll have to wait until after the holiday to see if and how he responds.
