Bill O'Reilly, shame of Irish people everywhere, on talk radio:
Delightful. Now, I don't hold Mr. Maher to the same standard as The Washington Post because he's a comedian, a man who makes a living expressing a point of view. But apparently the president's point of view, more civility, is not being embraced by Mr. Maher.
Also, I've gotten a lot of mail asking me why I don't come down on right-wing talk radio, and it's the same thing: Talk radio is entertainment. People on there make a living expressing opinions. It's not a news forum; therefore the standards are not the same.
I guess whatever it is that O'Reilly does is not expressing his opinion. Nonetheless, it's odd to me to classify "expressing one's opinion" as sufficient condition for entertainment. Discuss.
