Mr. Pipes is absolutely correct in his position about not going on with these types . Would we have let Hitler into our living rooms? And no matter what they say, no matter how absurd and no matter how many lies they tell, the host or moderator, would sit there nodding with a serious look on his face as if to say,"...this man has something serious to say." And oh, by the way,see how fair and objective I am.

O'Reiley got it right by way he handled that guy from a Florida college. Was he ever surprised by the questions and the tone that O'Reiley took. Obviously he had been getting away with his spin for some quite sometime.

What's next? Live interviews with Osama?
