Bill O'Reilly Sucks

Not that that's news, or anything.

Anyway, from Robot 6:
[W]hen the shoe was on the other foot, O'Reilly did a little stomping of his own: He took offense to his portrayal by political cartoonist Mike Thompson and ... well, let’s let Mike tell it:
He then gave out my work e-mail address and instructed his viewers to "let him know what you think." O'Reilly stressed that his viewers should take the high road in their e-mails to me, which is a little like placing a bowl of Halloween candy in front of kids and telling them not to gorge themselves. O'Reilly's smart enough to know what would happen.
Yup, the high road was definitely the road not taken. Thompson received over 2,500 e-mails, many of them in all caps, discussing exactly what people thought of him and his cartoon and what they would like to do to him.
I'm well aware that there's hypocrisy on both sides of the political spectrum, I'm just tired of it. Aren't you?
