Busted: Millions Heard Me Mock Bill O'Reilly
Whenever I call talk radio programs, I do so to engage in substantive debate (e.g., scroll down to yesterday's post). I had this intention when I called into Bill O'Reilly's radio show today. The topic was the supposed bias of the media. This time, I posed as Henry from Los Angeles (I used the name Henry as a tribute to wing nut blogger Henry Hanks). Anyhow, temptation got the best of me because when I got on the show, I couldn't help slipping in a variation of O'Reilly's name that is popular with me and sites like Media Whores Online. Unfortunately, O'Reilly caught what I said before I had a chance to discuss the issue. Here is the short conversation:
O'REILLY: Henry in LA. Henry, what say you?
SCOOBIE: Good afternoon, Mr. O'Lielly, yeah--

O'REILLY: You're outta here. Henry.
