I guess none of us have the time to watch "The View" (a weekday morning talk show) but I read about something interesting and surprising that happened on the show today. Bill O'Reilly, who you might know is a talk show host on Fox News, visited "The View."
During a discussion about Park51, a Muslim community center and mosque that is to be built two blocks from ground zero in Manhattan, Mr. O’Reilly said the project was “inappropriate” because “a lot of the 9/11 families, who I know, say, ‘Look, we don’t want that, that shouldn’t be there.’”
Mr. O’Reilly cited an opinion poll in which he said 70 percent of respondents did not want the project to go forward, and Ms. Goldberg and Ms. Behar continued to press him on why he felt it should not be built. Mr. O’Reilly replied, “Because Muslims killed us on 9/11.”At that point, hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off the set because they were so angry and offended. Here's the story and the video.
There's another post coming later tonight...
