It Was a Joke, Laura!
Today I went to Laura Ingraham's web site in an attempt to see if she was contrite about telling her radio listeners to jam a voter protection hotline (nothing about it on her site). I noticed her post, "the lie of the day" in which she accuses David Letterman of lying about not knowing where to find Fox News on his television:
"I don't even know how to get to your show," claimed David Letterman, when Bill O'Reilly made an appearance.
Sorry Dave, but we can smell what you're cooking. You're trying to make it seem like no one watches Fox News Channel or "The O'Reilly Factor" in a lame attempt to dismiss Bill's points. We all know you're watching his show like a hawk!
The real truth is that Letterman was setting up a punchline. Here's the quote in context
Letterman: Let me tell you something, I don't even know how to get to your show.
O'Reilly: Right down, you just go straight down, you take a right.
Letterman: But it's on, it's on Fox, I dial up Fox and it's always The Simpsons. And I don't--Where are you, Bill?
