New Game: Racist or Not
Today's contestant is talk show host, occasional blow-hard and sometimes pervy bigot Bill O'Reilly talking to a caller about the "Michelle Obama hates America" fake controversy. During this conversation, where O'Reilly is actually defending political spouses who are under the microscope, he uses an "inelegant" term that recently got a reporter on the Golf Channel suspended.
Always on Bill O'Reilly "Hate Speech Watch" were Media Matters and MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, who eagerly plucked this one out of the talk radio ether and splashed it on the web and Olbermann's "worsts" list.
The audio comes from Crooks and Liars.
Listen, then answer the question below, "RACIST or NOT!"
