Dennis Kucinich Warns O'Reilly Not to "Crow" About Fox News Success; Says Could Lead to Calls for the "Fairness Doctrine" - Video 1/22/10
Here is video of Bill O'Reilly tonight talking with quirky Democrat Rep. Dennis Kucinich about "America's move to the Right." O'Reilly asked Kucinich how he felt about the events of this week - the election of Scott Brown and the demise of liberal radio "Air America," as well as the awful ratings of CNN and MSNBC compared to Fox News.
Kucinich said he does not read the events of this week as meaning the country has moved to the Right. Of course, for Kucinich, Obama has not be far Left enough!So he seems oblivious to the message of the Massachusetts election.
Kucinich raised the issue of the "Fairness Doctrine," saying that if the Left Wing media declines it will lead to calls for a return to the "Fairness Doctrine."
When O'Reilly kept talking about how Fox News was killing the other cable networks, Kucinich warned O'Reilly by saying:
"Be careful, Bill, about crowing about your success right now, because people are going to start calling for the "Fairness Doctrine" to come back because they don't feel their views are adequately represented."
