Laura Ingraham hosted Bill O'Reilly of Fox News, author of "Keep It Pithy".
O'Reilly commented on the White House hounding James Rosen's sources and asked if the White House is overdoing it as far as providing a chilling effect on journalism. He said it's complicated and that it has been a problem throughout the ages as to the free press versus the government.
O'Reilly and Ingraham noted the negative relationship the White House has with Fox News. O'Reilly pointed out that the AP has given extremely favorable treatment to President Obama versus Fox News.
O'Reilly opined that due to President Obama's chaotic background, he is an uber control freak with a tendency to overstep. He also cited the 24/7 news cycle that puts out false information all the time. He said Obama isn't a good manager.
O'Reilly didn't want to write this new book which is a distillation of his philosophy. He coaches his son't Little League team and enjoys scuba diving and collecting historical documents.
