Amanpour: And, it's really tough when you go out and do that and for sure every time I go out with either the U.S. or the Iraqi Army I am very conscious that this is a potentially life-threatening exercise and, you know, you basically pray from the minute you go out to the minute you come back and you thank God when you've come back.... The war in Iraq has basically turned out to be a disaster and journalists have paid for it, paid for the privilege of witnessing and reporting that and so have many, many other people who have been there....

On a side note, O'Reilly went out of his way to say how much respect he has for CNN and other news competitors so he could attack NBC , but the following day he had Oliver "I sold weapons to Iran" North on his show throwing her reputation as a journalist under the bus. So much for civility
