O’Reilly’s Stalker Now Up For Stalking By NY Times

That’s right: One of O’Reilly’s head “ambush” producers refused three times to comment on the article the New York Times just put together about the “O’Reilly Factor” using ambush-style tactics in its interviewing. Looks like it’s time to camp outside his house!

The Fox News producer responsible for most of the ambush interviews, Jesse Watters, refused repeated interview requests.

Maybe more hilarious than this, though, is the trend the article (correctly, I believe) claims O’Reilly is following. What was once a staple of Mike Wallace and his ilk has now found its bastard red-headed stepchild in the guise of…that’s right, Michael Moore!

Rather than “60 Minutes,” the confrontations may bring to mind the liberal filmmaker Michael Moore, who documented his attempts to ambush the chairman of General Motors in his 1989 film “Roger & Me” and later asked members of Congress to enlist their children to serve in Iraq in 2004’s “Fahrenheit 9/11.”

Mr. O’Reilly has rejected the comparison, saying on Fox in 2006 that Mr. Moore is “doing it to put it in his movie and exploit it,” while “I’m doing it because there’s no other way to hold these villains accountable.”

Because O’Reilly doesn’t put these interviews on tape for a show he does. And he doesn’t get paid for said show. He’s such a goddamned philanthropist and man of the people, that one.
