It was embarrassing! If you watched the O’Reilly Factor’s Ashley Biden segment entitled the “Tale of the Tape,” you can be forgiven for feeling foolish or for being patronized. I.e., you either did not know or should not know that the Veep’s daughter was allegedly filmed snorting cocaine.
Reminiscent of Newsweeks’ approach to the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Bill O’Reilly complimented the mainstream media for mainly ignoring the story while its reckless counterpart the Internet news sources did not. However, O’Reilly indicated that he deemed it appropriate for the audience to know the development of this story. Hence, he interviewed Chris Meyers of Radaronline.com who had apparently been pedaled the video.
In his introduction, O’Reilly said that to be fair to the Biden family that he would not get into the “salacious allegations.” However, they became crystal clear to any observant viewer even thought Meyers’ answers to O’Reilly’s questions about the hawking, “setup,” and “shakedown” were bleeped four times. Thus, if you didn’t know already and still didn’t after viewing the segment, you may well be a simpleton.
