Will O'Reilly appear on The Colbert Report?
Say what you want about Bill O'Reilly (and I know you will), but the man has no qualms about stepping into the ring with those who disagree with him. He's appeared on both The Daily Show and Late Show with David Letterman, so why would he be shy about appearing on The Colbert Report, a show that, in many ways, owes its existence, or at the very least, its aesthetic, to The O'Reilly Factor? I've said here before I actually liked O'Reilly before his ego outgrew him, but I still love to watch his appearances on Letterman. As annoyed as Dave seems when O'Reilly is on, you know deep down he revels in those confrontational moments.
While neither FoxNews nor Comedy Central has confirmed it, rumors are abound that O'Reilly, or "Papa Bear," as Colbert is fond of calling him, might be appearing on The Colbert Report sometime soon. Colbert, who gave a picture of O'Reilly to the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, recently returned to reclaim the picture in anticipation of an upcoming appearance by O'Reilly, or so Esten Perez, Institute of Politics Director of Communications says. O'Reilly himself received a Master in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government in 1996.
