O’Reilly made an appearance on Bill Maher’s Real Time on HBO and the two of them exchanged jabs over Maher’s treatment of Christine O’Donnell, tax cuts for the rich and the budget deficit, whether or not President Obama is a “leftist” as O’Reilly likes to paint him and climate change.

They also got into it over Fox’s push of the phony story claiming that the Obama administration is planning on spending $200 million a day for his trip to India. O’Reilly’s defense of his fellow Fox “commentator” Sean Hannity amounted to saying that Hannity doesn’t have to report facts because he’s an “opinion” guy.

I guess Bill thinks being entitled to your own opinions means being entitled to your own facts as well, which seems to be pretty much the standard at Fox.
