Blustery Bill of the Fox News Channel. The subject? The great city of Los Angeles, of course. From Welch's post, it sounds like Bill was set to bash our dynamic metropolis as an unmanageable hodge-podge, in order to flutter the hearts of his geriatric and bitter viewing audience.But O'Reilly's producers let Welch know that they decided to go "in a different direction" - Maybe he got some surprise opportunity to bash Jesse Jackson's nephews or something.
Or perhaps O'Reilly had a moment of clarity - did he start to recall some sun-splashed media lunch at Ivy at the Shore, and reconsider his views? Or did he just decide that Welch was a little too young and spry for his sparring preferences?
In any case, we hope THE FACTOR decides to revisit this debate. When it comes to the vast arrays of east coast haters - each one so petrified of our freeways that they can't enjoy the city - LAist sez: "Bring 'em on."
