Oh. My. God.
It's the tenth anniversary of the O'Reilly Factor. Fox is showing the BEST SEGMENTS EVER from the last ten years. Right now, they're going over O'Reilly's coverage of the Lewinsky scandal. Tune in and watch as Billo's hairline recedes and jowls expand, and prominent Democrats start boycotting his show in a timelapse setting. (Also, thesis: the unit measure of evil is troy ounces of jowl fat. Discuss.)
UPDATE: Actually, this is really fascinating. Apparently, the show was originally called "The O'Reilly Report" and was an extension of his tabloid work on Inside Edition. What's more, O'Reilly acted like a nice enough tv-idiot. In addition to "Most Ridiculous Item of the Day," there was a segment called "Most Encouraging Item of the Day." Then, things sort of changed.
The most interesting feature of the show was that in this ostensible greatest hits compilation, there were no post-2004 election clips, and few post 2000 clips. If you recall, it was in October 2004 that O'Reilly's psychosexual dysfunctions became public knowledge. No real surprise that that's when the descent into paranoia and psychopathy really began to pick up steam.
UPDATE: Wanna see full-blown insane O'Reilly? Go here.
UPDATE: If you missed the Best Of O'Reilly, you can still catch Greta van Susteren's very timely hour-long special on Natalee Holloway, if you head over to FNC right now. I'm waiting.
UPDATE: Ok, since you asked, here's my theory on Natalee Blue-eyes. She was having consensual sex with Joran van der Sloot and his father when she OD'd on something they'd given her. They freaked out, chopped up her body or threw it in a woodchipper or something, and had done with. Also, this may be the whiskey talking, but I think the disappearance of a single attractive white female is more important and more worthy of a one-hour special than the mass-murder of a group of Iraqi civilians at the hands of US Marines. However, that would not be the case if she were not white.
