Hillary Clinton To Appear On "The O'Reilly Factor"

Hillary Clinton enters the "no-spin zone" tonight for her first-ever interview with Bill O'Reilly. According to HuffPo, BillO told his radio listeners that it won't be a "gotcha" game.

We'll see about that.

I really don't understand why Clinton (and Obama last Sunday) would agree to go on FOX and legitimize them as a news organization when they're clearly a GOP propaganda outlet created with the sole purpose of smearing Democrats and praising Republicans.

TPM's Greg Sargent has more, including a strong statement from MoveOn:

MoveOn, a major Obama supporter that hit the Illinois Senator over his Fox appearance and has led the charge against Fox, emails over this response, complete with hyperlink:

"With no plan to call out Fox's Republican agenda, Senator Clinton's appearance on 'The O'Reilly Factor' does nothing more than legitimize a network that will then use that credibility to smear Democrats and progressive ideas in 2008. She's pandering to a small audience that is not persuadable."
