It’s no secret that Bill O’Reilly is a few french fries short of a happy meal, but this publicity stunt is a little bizarre:
The incident was triggered when O’Reilly–with a Fox News crew shooting–was screaming at Obama National Trip Director Marvin Nicholson “Move” so he could get Obama’s attention, according to several eyewitnesses. “O’Reilly was yelling at him, yelling at his face,” a photographer shooting the scene said.
Secret Service agents who were nearby flanked O ‘Reilly after he pushed Nicholson. They told O’Reilly he needed to calm down and get behind the fence-like barricade that contained the press.
If it was anyone else, they would have been treated as a terrorist, maced, beaten and charged with some fascist new law the Bush regime conjured up with its “Patriot” Act – sanctioned all along by O’Reilly, of course.
