Homeless vets confront O'Reilly

Here's Fox News' treatment of homeless veterans arriving at Fox News headquarters in reaction to Bill O'Reilly's statement that he doesn't think there are many homeless veterans. Rush and Molloy of the New York Daily News reported on it.

Here's Keith Olbermann's recent report on O'Reilly's statement.

Hey, Bill, here's a link to the Veteran's Administration page on homeless veterans. They do exist.

Here, Keith Olbermann reports on how O'Reilly refused to meet them after presenting a petition.

John Edwards addressed the subject (before dropping out of the presidential race) on the Jan. 22 "Late Night With David Letterman" show.

Bill O'Reilly is a guy who is supposed to be a know-it-all. Good grief!

[Referring to Attorney General Michael Mukasey's portrait of George Orwell that is in his office]

[Referring to a theme park in Lithuania called 1984]
Olbermann: "I thought that was in Washington, D.C."

Olbermann: "WMDs that didn't exist, Mike Huckabee says they were hidden like Easter eggs."

[Referring to Jan. 21, which is considered to be the most depressing day of the year]
Olbermann: "Ask Keifer Sutherland. His jail term wouldn't interfere with the production of his TV show. Now he's out of the joint, but his show and all the others are out on strike."

Olbermann: "Economic stimulus package? I got your economic stimulus package right here – Britney Spears contributes $120 million to our economy."

[Referring to reports that Jamie Lynn Spears will give her baby to her mother]
Olbermann: "Lynne Spears is all for it, reportedly, believing that her daughter should be allowed to grow up like a normal teenager and pursue her career, a policy that's worked great so far."
