Bill O'Reilly says ideology is not a factor
Award-winning TV journalist, and self-described 'watch dog', Bill O'Reilly introduced his new book, Who's Looking Out For You? (Broadway Books, September 2003), at Book Expo America 2003, taking aim at ideologues on both sides of the political aisle. Ending his remarks by saying, 'We name names, but we don't call names,' O'Reilly took a pointed jab at Al Franken, whose new book, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them has a picture of O'Reilly on the front jacket. Stay tuned to this page for more on the Franken-O'Reilly Battle Royale.
