Maybe Bill O'Reilly Will Learn Something From This

They say that if one has too open of a mind, eventually, one's brains will fall out.

Bill O'Reilly says he's fair and balanced one minute, yet also says that he operates the "No Spin Zone" the next.

Bill O'Reilly will often ignore readily available contrary evidence and will himself engage in and/or humor liberal spin in an effort to appear "even handed." For example, O'Reilly will tell you that, despite evidence to the contrary, global warming is real. He will also tell you, despite mountains of evidence to the contrary, that Barack Hussein Obama is no socialist.

But when Bill O'Reilly entertained the state-run media notion that Hassan merely snapped "from the weight of bullying and possible deployment," Col. Ralph Peters would have nothing of it:

Note how toward the end of the interview, O'Reilly was backpedaling like a unicyclist at the Ringling Brothers circus trying to evade an escaped lion.

Good on you, Col. Peters!
