Fight song


If that’s not enough for Goggin, he can google a piece written by Jack Shafer, of Slate, way back in 2003, in which he wrote, “Bill O’Reilly says ‘shut up’ the way other people say ‘um.’ ” Shafer follows that with one, two, three . . . okay, make that 30 examples of O’Reilly telling guests and non-guests alike to “shut up.”

Goggin also seems to labor under the misapprehension that I don’t know much about O’Reilly’s show. Let me assure him that I watch it often enough. And here’s something that may surprise Goggin: not only was I once a guest on The Factor, but O’Reilly and I were on the same side.
