By the way that Bill O’Reilly talks about “the media” with George Stephanopoulos in this clip, you’d think he wasn’t a part of it. According to O’Reilly, “the media presents a distorted picture to Americans” about politics, “because they seize upon the loons on both the left and the right.”

O’Reilly also has a quick breakdown as to why the health care reform bill isn’t going to be a bipartisan triumph — “ideologues on both sides smell blood” — and tells Nancy Pelosi to hang up her hopes about including a public option in the health care bill. And then the subject moves to former-Alaska-governor-turned-Fox-News-commentator Sarah Palin, who O’Reilly says is in need of “political college.” By the way, the “O’Reilly Factor” host has no intention of running for office himself because, according to him, “I have more power doing what I’m doing.” –KA
