Clooney vs O'Reilly

People are coming up to me and asking if it's true that the telethon was a fraud. That means the next time we try to raise money, like when the CD from the telethon comes out this month, fewer people will participate. Because of your unsubstantiated, untrue statements about the September 11 Fund, You, Mr. O'Reilly will be taking money away from people who need it....and all because it's the first week of sweeps.

I will say this; you were right about one thing. You accused all of the performers of lying. You named them one by one and read each of their excuses for not responding to you.

Tom Cruise, "Too busy".
Brad Pitt, "Too busy to respond".
Tom Hanks.....you get the idea.

You're right, Mr. O'Reilly, we lied...all of us. Of course we weren't too busy. And if you were Peter Jennings, or Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, Charlie Rose, The Washington Post, New York Times, LA Times, or pretty much anybody else, we would have dropped everything and explained what we know. You see Bill, these are journalists. So, yes we lied when we said we were too busy to do your "entertainment show". We were just trying to not hurt your feelings.

That was round one in 2001. Now coming out of the corner for in response to round two, gentleman George Clooney gives a second shut-the-f**k-uppercut to blabbering right-wing fox-twit Bill O'Reilly.

Makes you wish the exchange could have taken place on live television ala Jon Stewart's influential destruction of CNN Crossfire.
