Remember Bill Moyers' deft handling of Bill O'Reilly ambush producer Porter Barry? I couldn't wait to see how Billo would use the footage, knowing full well that he'd never allow the unedited version on his show to prove how superior Bill Moyers is--professionally, morally, graciousness, and in all other ways--to the whole of the FOXNews empire. In fact, for fun, look at the comparison of coverage of this tête-à-tête between Billo and Olbermann, courtesy of FreePress.net.

Billo can hardly contain his disdain for the National Conference for Media Reform. The concept of "media reform" being apparently a radically leftist idea that can only take shape with funding from George Soros and America-haters like MoveOn and Robert Greenwald. (Have I got all the stereotypical smears in?) His proof that they are radical leftists? Their unanimous contempt for FOXNews. (Bill, bubbeleh, NCMR wants to reform the media--obviously the biggest violators of the separation between journalism and propaganda showing up to their conference to do the kind of smear job you proved you would do is going to bring out some hostility. I wouldn't be offering you any m-fing iced tea if you showed up on my doorstep either). How can you tell that FOX News has nothing to work with? They bring out the body language expert. They actually try to claim that Moyers' was physically dominating Porter Barry by patting him on the shoulder. Scraping the bottom of the barrel, Bill.

FreePress's Tim Karr thinks he knows what scares Bill O'Reilly so much.

During his Wednesday night broadcast Bill O'Reilly called Dan Rather's attendance at this week's Minneapolis conference proof positive that the former CBS anchor was farther than far left. "These people are crazy! Crazy!" O'Reilly said of the more than 3,000 people attending the conference. "He's hanging with real nuts!"

What O'Reilly is afraid to admit is that the media reform movement encompasses everyone who thinks our mainstream media -- that means you, Bill -- could do a lot better.

Doing your job well and honestly? On Fox??? *snort*
