Yale on O'Reilly and O'Reilly on Yale

Wednesday night's episode of The O'Reilly Factor featured a discussion of the two major current Yale-related news stories: the Taliban student and military recruiting in law schools. Mr. O'Reilly brought two Yale College seniors (Zvika Krieger and Andrew Bender) onto the show to talk about the issues at hand. Krieger and Bender acquitted themselves fairly well, but O'Reilly came off looking somewhat buffoonish as usual. He focused too much on discussing the law school controversy with undergrads who weren't closely connected to the issue. But that was nothing compared to his final question: "Does Yale hate America?"

The only thing worse than O'Reilly was the e-mail response to the segment. Someone complained about her son not getting into Yale Law School because of Hashemi. Hashemi has nothing to do with the law school!
