BillO asks Mike how McCain has become the front-runner after his campaign was almost done as soon as it began. O'Reilly must be stuck in his studio writing questions for his culture quiz or busy editing sandbag pieces from his sophomoric producer Jesse Watters because he obviously hasn't been paying attention to the media's love affair with John McCain all these years.

O'Reilly: "Believe me, if McCain is the Republican nominee, the same media that's giving him good coverage now, are going to turn and try to cut his throat, because the media in America wants to elect a Democratic President. 80% of them are actively working to do that. You are absolutely right. That is a perversion of our Constitution. It should not be happening but it absolutely is happening.

OK, I hate to ask the question. Billie, what evidence do you have to make these charges? Nevermind. Since Edwards dropped out of the race---O'Reilly will now turn the Hackery Factor's attention onto the media even more than he usually does since the GOP is in a major meltdown. I do agree with Huckabee when he says that the media is trying to pick our candidates for us with their overage, but not for the same reasons. And it's interesting how BillO and Huckabee didn't mention the abysmal campaigns that Thompson and the original front-runner---9iu11ani ran that enabled McCain to have a second life. By the way---if anyone has received a ton of free publicity from them it's the "God constitutionalist" himself.

Can you help us out?
