Reading, Writing & Right-Wing Shouting

Bill O'Reilly, the mad dog of the Fox "News" Channel and talk radio, has written The O'Reilly Factor for Kids; A Survival Guide for America's Families.

Uh...yeah. This is the guy who has dropped racist hints in his commentaries and is prone to shouting "SHUT UP!" to his detractors while on the air!

In case you forgot about that second part:

I took a little peek at the reviews on Amazon and found this by "Todd and In Charge":

"Boy oh boy, as a father with kids who regularly watch the Factor I was looking forward to this book. But I have to tell you: it's a disappointment! Poorly written, little actual advice of a substantive nature, more platitudes and homilies that you could have written for Bill yourself. This one really looks like Bill is milking a cash-cow to death, and with the economy the way it is, we could all spend our money more wisely than purchasing this book. I hope that doesn't make me a 'pinhead.'"

Todd gave the book one out of five stars.

Brave New Films, the folks you brought you Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism, has made a short video about O'Reilly and his book. It's worth a look:
