Nicole predicted that O'Reilly would come after NBC after the Bill O'Reilly Puppet Theater earlier this week. On Thursday, O'Reilly went one better and upped his long-standing obsession with NBC to their parent company, General Electric, by ranting about a former NBC correspondent's allegations that G.E. has ties to the bin Laden family and is doing business with Iran (I don't know but wouldn't be surprised if the allegations are or were true. So what's that say about the Bush family, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney or Haliburton? Or for that matter, what about Billo's boss Rupert Murdoch's doing business in Cuba among a ton of other questionable business practices? Glass houses much, Billo?).

When GE CEO/Chairman Jeffrey Immelt did not respond to his show's questions regarding the matter, Billo got his falafel in a bunch and did the same thing he has done so many times before and sent his goons out to ambush him. This time, they caught their victim while he was seated at a table having dinner and the minions (apparently taking lessons in bully journalism from Billo) have to push and shove their way in past the restaurant staff so they can poke the mic and camera in his face.

Immelt's in a totally different league than your average run-of-the-mill Billo ambush victim. Methinks the Big Giant Head just might have bitten off a bit more than he can chew with this stunt. * Note to Immelt - until you launch a hostile takeover bid to acquire News Corp so you can have your revenge, you might want to learn the three magic words that are guaranteed to keep Billo's stalker Mini-Mes at bay and their footage off of the TV next time.
