Video: O’Reilly smears Hot Air

posted at 10:22 pm on May 27, 2009 by Allahpundit

Ah, there’s nothing like yanking a comment out of context and using it to smear the entire site, even though neither Ed nor I have ever referred to Obama as “Hussein.” Bonus points to O’R for referring to the comment in question as a “blog posting” even though it’s anything but. And before our lefty commenters ask, yes, I have defended Kos from similar charges.

Exit question: How guilty to hold Carpenter for not objecting more vociferously in Hot Air’s defense?

Update (Ed): I put Bill O’Reilly in the same category as Alan Colmes, when he accused us of being a Birther site, even though we kept criticizing the people pushing it. Bottom line for me: if the O’Reilly Factor can’t figure out the difference between a blog post and a comment, they have no business opining about the Internet at all.

Gee, does this mean I can tell all my friends I’m a blogger at HotAir??

O’Reilly should offer a clarification, definitely.

Update (Ed): ….

Ed, get Allah to show you how to create new posts.
