I got a tip on this yesterday and passed it along to Media Matters. Michelle Obama has been attacked over a recent comment she made by the right wing the last few days about being proud of America. She was targeted as being unpatriotic even by McCain's wife. Well, you knew it was only a matter of time before "lynching references" would pop up when discussing Obama's campaign.

O'Reilly: "I don't want to go on a lynching party against Michelle Obama unless there's evidence, hard facts, that say this is how the woman really feels"

Justin Cole:

In a discussion of recent comments made by Michelle Obama, Bill O'Reilly took a call from a listener who stated that, according to "a friend who had knowledge of her," Obama " 'is a very angry,' her word was 'militant woman.' " O'Reilly later stated: "I don't want to go on a lynching party against Michelle Obama unless there's evidence, hard facts, that say this is how the woman really feels. If that's how she really feels -- that America is a bad country or a flawed nation, whatever -- then that's legit. We'll track it down."

Just recently a reporter from the Golf Channel apologized to Tiger Woods for using the word "lynching" when talking about his play on the tour which resulted in her suspension. An editor was also fired.

O'Reilly has a history of racially charged remarks. He took a lot of heat for his callous description of the behavior of African Americans eating at Harlem's Sylvia's restaurant not too long ago. Will Juan Williams swoop in to try and deflect criticism from BillO this time too?
