Battle of the Bills: O’Reilly v. Moyers

This video is great (hat tip: PR Junkie). Using O'Reilly-esque tactics, one of the producers for Bill O'Reilly's show springs on Bill Moyers. This unedited footage is great. The producer repeatedly bombards Moyers about his lack of “courage” to appear on Bill O'Reilly's show. Moyers repeatedly points out that he asked O'Reilly to come on his show first, and that he would be happy to go on O'Reilly's show, provided O'Reilly accepts Moyers invitation. (Which is only fair. Moyers did issue the first invitation. And O'Reilly rarely goes anywhere where he is not in control to pummel and badger guests that disagree with him.)

THEN, the camera crew follows the producer and does the exact same thing to that producer that he has been doing to Moyers. And treats the producer to the same kind of pugilistic punditry (I would never call it journalism) that is common on Bill O'Reilly's show.
