Bill O'Reilly Responds to 'The View' Walk-Off and Ground Zero Debate, Says He Was Trying to 'Sell a Book' (VIDEO)

Bill O'Reilly Responds to 'The View' Walk-Off and Ground Zero Debate, Says He Was Trying to 'Sell a Book'Having people leave the room while you're talking is generally considered to be a bad thing. But Bill O'Reilly always tries to look on the bright side. Two months ago, back in October, O'Reilly got into an infamous yelling match during a live filming of 'The View,' which culminated in co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walking away in protest.

On 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), David Letterman had this question for O'Reilly: "What the hell happened over there on 'The View'? What was going on?"

Bill said he knew Behar didn't like him, and that Whoopi's opinion of him varied. He added that he was just trying to "sell a book" during his time on the show. And he found a positive aspect to the fiasco, joking that it was the "greatest thing ever." "You know what I was thinking? ... 'I hope they all leave! Then I'll take the whole show. I'll have 45 minutes of ABC airtime.'" Well, that's one way to sell a book.

Stephen Colbert Learns That He's a Potential 'Ground Zero' TerroristOh, man. There's nothing worse than learning a dreadful secret about yourself. On the latest 'Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central), Stephen Colbert discovers the worst thing of all. Yes, apparently the satirical super-patriotic news host ... is actually a secret terrorist. Uh-oh. That can't be good. And sadly, the whole thing is Jon Stewart's fault.

Yesterday on 'The Daily Show,' Jon Stewart uncovered a startling revelation. One of the men giving money to the "Ground Zero Mosque" in New York City is also a major Fox News shareholder. This man's name is Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. He owns 7% of the Fox News parent corporation, and he's also supporting the so-called 9/11 "terror mosque." Thus, there's a link between Fox News and the supposedly "dangerous" Islamic center. But then it gets worse.

Jon Stewart: Why Won't Fox News Disclose That Ground Zero Mosque-Funder is News Corp Shareholder? (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart Links Fox News to the 'Ground Zero Mosque'Fox News has been fairly merciless in its criticism of the 'Ground Zero Mosque.' Commentators on the station consider the mosque to be dangerous and radical -- and they think that creating an Islamic center on the site is insensitive to the feelings of 9/11 survivors.

Correspondents on the network have also routinely been asking where the funding for the mosque is coming from. They have been implying that the money is coming from suspicious sources ... such as terrorists. But now, we learn that a man who has been funding the "Ground Zero Mosque" is the second largest shareholder of ... New Corp, Fox's parent company. Whoops. That's not good.

Jon Stewart vs. Glenn Beck; Fighting Over the 'Ground Zero' Mosque (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart vs. Glenn Beck; Fighting Over the 'Ground Zero' Mosque'Daily Show' host Jon Stewart has been making fun of Fox News anchor Glenn Beck for a long time. On the latest episode of the show (weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), Stewart criticized Beck for his stance on the "Ground Zero" mosque.

In case you haven't been following this controversy -- it was proposed that a Islamic mosque and cultural center be built in Lower Manhattan. The site chosen was just two blocks away from the location of the 9/11 attacks.

Polls consistently show that a majority of Americans -- 64% or more -- oppose building the Islamic center. President Obama is in favor of the mosque. ... And naturally, Glenn Beck is against it. But tonight, Jon Stewart went after Beck, accusing him of "flip-flopping" and hypocrisy.

First, Beck attacked Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf -- the man who is trying to build the mosque. And then Beck presented this quote from Rauf:

"I wouldn't say that the United States deserved what happened [on 9/11], but United States policies were an accessory to the crime that happened."

NBC, CBS Reject Controversial Ad

by Chris Jordan, posted Jul 15th 2010 9:00AM
NBC and CBS have rejected a commercial that criticizes the building of a controversial mosque near Ground Zero in New York City, according to a report in the Hollywood Reporter.

The spot, sponsored by the National Republican Trust PAC, says the mosque would be denigrating to the victims of 9-11.

"To celebrate that murder of 3,000 Americans, they want to build a monstrous 13-story mosque at Ground Zero," says the narrator in the spot while images of 9-11 are shown. "This ground is sacred, where we weep, they rejoice ... that mosque is a monument to their victory."
