O'Reilly vs. Gross
Everybody knows that Bill O'Reilly is an obnoxious blowhard. So why didn't Terry Gross just sit back and let him prove it? For some silly reason -- smells like laziness -- she couldn't bring herself to give ol' B.O. the same collegial treatment she gave Al Franken a month earlier. NPR's ombudsman, who we can assume did NOT vote for 43 in 2000, agrees.

Listen to Gross's interview of Al Franken, then check out her session with Bill O'Reilly and note the difference in tone.

Here's an idea: Maybe, just maybe, Gross is on the Fox News payroll? If not she should be, and if I were Roger Ailes, I'd send her the finest fruit basket money can buy as a special thank-you for forever validating FNC's Raison d'Etre (that means Raisons for Etre, for all you non-French-speakers out there).
