CHARLIE MARTIN: A Theory Of Bill O’Reilly. “O’Reilly is a self-important middle manager. If he sees you are ‘above him’ in stature, someone who makes him look good by being on the screen with him, he’s obsequious. If he sees you as beneath him, then he expects deference.”

UPDATE: Roger Simon: “Bill O’Reilly’s pre-Super Bowl interview of Barack Obama was mighty slow going and felt a good deal longer than its fourteen minutes and sixteen seconds. Two or three minutes in I was about to shut it off, but I kept watching, almost fascinated by the sheer pointlessness of it all.”
