Someone should gag Bill O'Reilly

It should surprise no one that I don't like Bill O'Reilly. But the other night, he made a statement that absolutely disgusted me. He claimed that the reason Shawn Hornbeck never ran away from his kidnapper was because "The situation...looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his old parents. He didn't have to go to school. He could run around and do whatever he wanted."

I can't even write coherently, I'm so appalled by that. What? LIKED it? Are you a scared 11 year-old, Bill? Have you ever been kidnapped? Molested as a child? If you never have, then shut the fuck up. I don't know what gives you the right to say how this kid felt or discuss what he experienced as though you were there.

He owes that boy a huge apology.

Wow. Bill is such a dick.

Yeah, a total dickwad. Yes Bill, little boys are so able to rise above and defeat brainwashing and abuse, no problem!

Fucking asshole.

The man is a menace.

Shawn Hornbeck did what he had to do to survive. Period.

So Bill, answer this? Then why did he announce to police who he was as soon as they entered the apartment after the warrant was served for the search? Why did he, when given a little freedom with a computer, try to leave cryptic messages for his parents on their website for the Shawn Hornbeck foundation?

Yeah, can't answer that? Thought so.

Some people should have their license to speak revoked. Talk about blaming the victim.

OMG, I had not heard that. That IS totally appalling! Someone should force him to prostrate himself before that kid and grovel his apologies. Seriously.
