    Story here.

    While mild, this sounds like it borders on illegal behavior.

    Bill O'Reilly does not help the conservative cause. Never has. We would be better off without him.

    I agree with Bro Curtis. The last thing the conservative cause needs is a bafoon in the spot light.

    There are a number of mouthy conservatives that the cause would be better off without. IMHO.

    I especially don't like it when they won't let anyone else finish a sentence. Of course, I don't like it when anyone does that.

    Bill claims to be liberterian. Either way, the jury is still out as to what is bigger - Bill's ego, or Neptune.

    I saw the scene on Bill's show . Bill is a pushy kind of guy ( figuratively )-- but I think he was right in this circumstance . The tall guy ( who probably worked for Obama ) deliberately got in the way of cameras . The camerman then moved to another spot and the tall guy placed himself right in front again . So Bill yelled something to the effect : "Get out of the way . Let us take the shot !" . As far as the physical atercation went -- I didn't see or remember much of that .

    Yeah , I'm in agreement with you . But Bill is not a classic conservative . He has been put in his place several times on his own show . But he still stuts around the barnyard anyway . BTW , did you know that he has the largest viewing aud... ?

    As far as not letting anyone finish a sentence -- Chris Matthews wins first prize . He's downright irritating .

    Man, that's the truth! I like Matthews but get irritated myself when he does these types of things.

    I am not a big fan of his, and I agree that he and Matthews have some huge egos and can be extremely irritating.

    However, I agree with Rippon here, I watched the footage and I think he did the right thing too. It was clear the guy from Obama's campaign was doing it on purpose and you can even see a smirk on his face at one point. Especially after the camera man moved over to get the shot and then the guy moved as well to block it again.

    Regarding interrupting, nobody can ever take the place of Larry King. I call him "The Great Interrupter"

    If there are any King fans reading this, please dont flame me. :)

    I'm a Larry King fan too. I like him. I like his show.

    But he does have that one flaw.

    He asks question #7 on his list. Then...while the guest is in the middle of answering...he looks down and just blurts out question #8.

    Drives me crazy.

    Mike
