Bill O'Reilly, paparazzo

When it comes to his journalistic practices, the Fox News host has a small issue with hypocrisy.

Below, a great segment on Bill O'Reilly from Monday night's "Daily Show." In it, Jon Stewart skewers O'Reilly regarding one of the worst aspects of the latter man's show on Fox News -- his habit of sending out producers to conduct ambush interviews with anyone who's incurred the wrath of Papa Bear.

Turns out O'Reilly's use of the tactic flies in the face of his criticism of other people who do almost the same exact thing. That's no great surprise, really, considering the way O'Reilly generally operates, but it's still amazing to see just how blatant his hypocrisy is.
