Joan Walsh Defeats Bill O’Reilly

The Salon editor appears on the O'Reilly Factor and tells Bill that he has "blood on his hands."

Salon editor Joan Walsh recently appeared on the O’Reilly Factor and made

-Finish your sentences, even if O’Reilly
interrupts you.

-Do your research and form your
soundbites ahead of time.

-Don’t raise your voice higher than
Bills, or get more emotional. This way, he looks like the crazy one, as nature

-Leave no charge unanswered, even if it
sounds absurd. Especially if it sounds absurd.

Bill raises his voice to get his guests on edge and then throw
them off. To ignore his barbs and act calm and reasonable turns the tables, and
makes him look like an angry fool. When you finally see this in action, it
seems so obvious that you have to wonder why it hasn’t been accomplished before.
