Letterman Gives O’Reilly A Shot Of P.R.

By Brian 

Bill O’Reilly gained publicity from verbal joust with David Letterman on Tuesday night, Newsday’s Verne Gay reports.

On his radio show, O’Reilly called the CBS host a card-carrying member of the “secular progressive movement.” He also said: “See, I’m not some dopey movie star that comes in there who is intimidated by him…And most of his guests want his approval, and he knows that. So he has a very strong advantage point.”

On Wednesday’s Factor, O’Reilly replayed several minutes of the late-night back-and-forth. “The culture war plays out on the David Letterman program,” he declared.
