Neal Gabler Watch: Day #1
O'Reilly's not happy that a FOX employee would have the nerve to publicly criticize "The Factor." O'Reilly had Eric Burns, the host of " FOX News Watch" on and demanded that he take action. (rough transcript)
O'Reilly: Hey Eric, you gotta come down on this Gabler guy, I mean he's just out of control and I'll tell you why...you have Gabler picking up a far left blog (Bill shows no proof) conspiracy theory-spitting it out there and you guys sit there---like humpty dumpty.---I'd fire him in a heartbeat.
Bill told Burns he should have edited out what O'Reilly found offensive. Now we know what O'Reilly does on his show. Don't like an opinion-cut it. How much was Gabler sued for? How much payola did FOX settle on to bail Neil out of legal troubles? None that I can think of.
Burns tries to defend his show and kowtow to Bill at the same time while O'Reilly calls Gabler a "rabid dog." Sounds just like the sort of smear that Bill accuses those pesky, lefty websites of doing. How long do you think Gabler will last?
