Lessig Upbraids O'Reilly

Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, is a stunning example of everything wrong with Fox. Closed minded and surrounded by yes-men, he's convinced himself that his extreme right-view viewpoints are both mainstream and objective. Unfortunately for O'Reilly, every once in a while he gets caught in his lies and irrationality. Most recently Lawrence Lessig upbraided O'Reilly for repeatedly slandering Jeremy Glick. Glick's father died in 9/11, but is against the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Lessig documents the lies O'Reilly has told and backs up his case from the actual interview. This is all based on Lessig's recent work with Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism. Lessig's upbraiding includes both the original, uncut interview, and the analysis of the interview from Outfoxed.

Hmmm, at $10, Outfoxed is looking mighty tempting...
