Michael Moore Vs. Bill O’Reilly


It was a showdown on Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor on Tuesday night when Michael Moore went head to head against Bill O’Reilly.

Some of the exchange went like this:

Moore: Over 900 of our brave soldiers are dead. What do you say to their parents?

O’Reilly: What do I say to their parents? I say what every patriotic American would say. We are proud of your sons and daughters. They answered the call that their country gave them. We respect them and we feel terrible that they were killed.

Moore: And, but what were they killed for?

O’Reilly: They were removing a brutal dictator who himself killed hundreds of thousands of people

Moore: Um, but that was not the reason that was given to them to go to war, to remove a brutal dictator

O’Reilly: It was a mistake

Moore: Oh, just a mistake, and that’s what you tell all the parents with a deceased child, “We’re sorry.” I don’t think that is good enough.
