In what was billed as a " Are Web logs" being used as ideological weapons?" segment, Bill just took out his anger over Media Matters that calls him out on all of his inconsistencies and The Smoking Gun which printed his Andrea Mackris law suit. (which she got roughly six and a half million for from my sources.) Bill said he had trouble getting people on the segment because MM are assassins. lol Heck-I would have gone on and about a hundred other bloggers-right, center or left to talk about this subject.

Jed Babbin was on as an apparent smear victim, but if you look at the Media Matters post they do what they always do. Point out the obvious. If you listen to Babbin, he claims that there was an all out assault on him and an email campaign. I don't see where MM had a pre-printed email letter to send anyone do you? Maybe O'Reilly should question Brent Bozell and his group that uses mass emails to attack any TV show or commercial they disapprove of. Buzz Machine exposed that bunch. Why are you such a coward Mr. O'Reilly? Why not have on somebody from Media Matters to air out your complaints with? You never even cited a single issue that they got wrong about you so basically you are being a smear merchant. Anyway, there's a lot in this clip to discuss. (Apparently we all run the major newspapers too. lol)

(Update): Think Progress has more: O’Reilly Said He Had Trouble Booking Blog Segment, Actually Turned Guests Away: Power Line was cancelled, Which begs the question: If O’Reilly was actually turning guests away, why did he try to smear Media Matters by claiming he had trouble booking anyone for the segment? on"

I had asked Michelle Malkin yesterday if she was booked for the segment and she said she wasn't either. She also confirmed the Power Line cancellation. O'Reilly wonders why he is called out on his garbage.
