O'Reilly vs. Franken: God's Gift to Media Critics

Bill O'Reilly has argued, strongly, that he is not behind Fox News's failed lawsuit against Al Franken's book, "Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell Them." He asserts that it was Fox News's lawsuit, not his.

O'Reilly appears to have a lawsuit of his own in mind, however. Specifically, he asks:

Some of those smear books that are written here are being sold in London. Can I go over there and sue those people over there? Because I can't win here. Can I go over there and sue? Because I'll go.

We can only pray.
