Terry Gross interviewed Bill O'Reilly on Fresh Air today, and O'Reilly abruptly ended the interview after complaining of being treated unfairly by Gross (she asked him about the usual stuff, his lies and threats). While I'm no fan of Bill O'Reilly (his social conservatism and rudeness get on my nerves), he was right about the unfairness. I've never heard Gross confront her guests the way she did O'Reilly. It seems that she attacked O'Reilly because she dislikes him, and she should have put that aside in doing the interview. Also, clearly she's not used to attacking guests, and she pretty much sucked at it here. Definitely a worthwhile listen if you have 40 minutes to spare.
