  1. Yes, he should have asked one question and then sat back quitely while the president took the entire 10 minutes to answer it…that would have been a fascinating interview…

    1. So long as there’s something worthwhile in the answer, it really doesn’t matter if it takes 10, 15 or 30 minutes. But if the president isn’t even given a chance to finish his answer, then we won’t know.

  2. I don’t understand the point of this ridiculous edit. If it’s to show that O’Reilly was “disrespectful” to the President, then mission accomplished, but I didnt see it during the live 10 minute interview. I saw an intelligent dialogue between two professionals. The problem with this is, you could edit anyone to make them look like this…I’d like to see what the John Stewart interview looks like when edited like this…and I wonder…is it disrespectful to call the POTUS “dude” when he’s sitting in front of you…let the thumbs downs commence…lol

    1. “Intelligent dialogue between two professionals”? Was there a third person in the room? Or are you using “professional” to include whores?

    2. Same thing I was thinking while watching it (I stopped about a minute in – I had gotten the gist by then). I didn’t see the interview in its entirety, so I don’t know how severe the interruptions were (or if O’Reilly let Obama finish after the interuptions). From what I’ve seen on his show, by definition, O’Reilly is a terrible interviewer: rude, overbearing, and argumentative. But from this edit, I can’t tell if he was really behaving that way toward the President or not. I still think he’s a dick, though.

  3. O’Reilly is a lousy journalist because everything is about him. Instead of acting as a semi-transparent conduit for information flow from his subject, he insinuates himself wholly into the conversation to the point that he is finishing the subject’s thoughts. He does so in an argumentative and disrespectful manner that often leaves the subject frustrated at the inability to make his complete thoughts heard. One gets the feeling that O’Reilly doesn’t care who he is speaking to, or the subject being discussed, but simply that he wants to dominate the conversation.

  4. O’Reilly interrupts everyone. He was the same way with Sarah Palin and repeatedly asked her if if someone can be too conservative, a question she dodged each time. President Obama has been on the O’Reilly’s show before, they knew what was going to happen.
