Rule #1 when you find yourself in a hole: STOP DIGGING. Anyone with a functioning IQ knows that.

And then there's Bill O'Reilly.

Determined to exhibit to all that he has only just slithered out of the primoridial ooze without two brain cells to rub together, Bill O'Reilly finds himself in a hole and grabs for a whole host of shovels (pardon the mixed metaphors). When Brave New Films showed up at FoxNews HQ with some homeless veterans to confront him with the fact that there are indeed homeless veterans, O'Reilly turns the cameras back on them and tries to dismiss the veterans for not watching his program and hearing for themselves exactly what he said (sorry, Bill, most homeless people DON'T GET CABLE, you farkin' idiot). Of course, insults to Robert Greenwald (for the record, my baby sister loved Xanadu), NBC News and the Post are obligatory. But here's what I want to know: Bill O'Reilly, you have now sent your little flunkies out (because you're not a man enough to do it yourself) and placed your cameras in front of homeless veterans. What will you do to help them? Man up, O'Reilly. Put your money where your mouth is.

Can you help us out?
