This is unequivocally the mother of all straw-men: In O'Reilly's mind, News Corp and FOX broadcasting -- who he reiterated have "nothing to do with FOX News" (which is true as long as you don't count the whole corporate ownership and Roger Ailes connection nonsense; not to mention the fact that HarperCollins is also owned by News Corp.) -- had the audacity...

...to produce a disgusting program that the Righteous Culture Warriors bravely stood up to in an amazing act of "independence" thereby scoring a "victory for the folks" in this epic battle of the civilization-threatening "culture wars." Bill O. also warned that upon returning, he will "list the enemies of FOX News" that "try to spin this" as anything other than a brazen act of FOX News independence and unbiased reporting. Well, get your pen out, Bill.
