On Thursday, after several strong denials of the existence of homeless U.S. veterans, Bill O’Reilly received a visit from an actual pack of homeless U.S. vets eager for a personal apology from Papa Bear himself.
Despite the David versus Goliath theme, yesterday’s protest wasn’t exactly a media event. Which is why one particularly slick-looking reporter (identified by the Daily News as producer Jesse Waters) seemed so out of place. Maybe it was his flipped-up coat collar, his fancy leather shoes, and his well-coiffed hair. Or perhaps it was the fact that he kept sticking the mic in the vets’ faces demanding to know why the hell they were there and if they were the same people that called our troops in Iraq “baby-killers” and “mercenaries.”
Yep, Fox News had crashed the Bill-O protest.
