Matt Drudge and many right wingers took literally when Imus jokingly told David Gregory that he was drunk on his radio show the other day. Bill O'Reilly produced a hit piece segment soon after-allowing his resident puppet, Juan Williams to attack him.
I watched the segment that some right wingers attacked David on and while Gregory was pretty giddy in the spot, nobody could say he was drunk.
Imus: Apparently my friend Bill O'Reilly had that little bitch Juan Williams on---in which they were making-Juan Williams should shut his mouth or I'm going to slap his teeth down his throat that little punk....
David Gregory came on to talk about the segment. Williams often comes on the "The Factor" to defend O'Reilly like he did with Bill's-Letterman appearance. He does at times make a good argument on certain issues, but it's obvious that when push comes to shove-O'Reilly owns Williams.
