You, your jobs, your work ethics have been attacked, smeared, maligned, besmirched, spun out of control and flat out lied about by the no-spin meister.
If college professors have cushier jobs than the rest of us when they are dealing with a bunch of post-adolescent I-know-better-than-you; I'd-rather-be-anywhere-than-here; and, don't-bother me-with-the-facts, because I'm too drunk, or too hungover, or too busy looking up your skirt, or too busy looking at the bulge in your pants, wise-ass kids...then Bilge-O's right, they do have it cushier than the rest of us.
College and university professors have to put up with all the crap that's slung at them by the students they teach, the parents and school administrators, and all the while they are constantly fighting to keep their jobs by publishing, publishing, publishing. Publishing to the point where it's amazing they have any time to teach anybody anything... whether it's the truth or not.
If, as you say, Bill, they "have a responsibility to tell the truth"...then so do you!
Your first responsibility is to tell the truth! The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth...just as if you were in a court of law.
Why? You might ask, Bill "Mr. Twister" O'Reilly who still doesn't get it, not even after others have repeatedly pointed out the errors of your ways.
Answer: Because you are one of the priviledged few who has access to the public airwaves, paid for by the tax payers.
Answer: You reach a far larger audience than ONE professor.
Answer: Because you have the microphone, people believe you, no matter what driveling lies flow out of your big fat mouth.
You lied about Daily KOS being an evil, hate-filled, Nazi-mongering site, which was proven in several columns by Steve Young in both Op-edNews and the Huffington Post.
Young pointed out that on the day you and your so-called liberal sidekick, Lis Weihl, couldn't find any vicious postings by commenters during a three minute commercial break, he found four such postings in a two minute search of the site.
Young also made it crystal clear for your edification, that your former playmate at Fox News and good buddy at the White House, Press Secretary Tony Snow, was a frequent contributor to Free Republic.
