Last night, Bill O’Reilly and radio host Laura Ingraham tag teamed to slam the New York Times for publishing a picture of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s vacation home. O’Reilly repeatedly called the publication of the picture “awful.” O’Reilly didn’t mention that the pictures were taken with Rumsfeld’s permission and the Secret Service said the photo did not constitute a security threat. Watch it:
INGRAHAM: I got the view from — in the makeup room, by the way, that you got a B plus but a very strong B plus from him. That’s what he told me.
But look, he believes that the New York Times is an absolute national treasure, and the New York Times believes that it truly is being patriotic when it publishes the banking records that, you know, of story when it publishes a photo of the secretary of defense’s vacation home, as it did last week.
O’REILLY: Yes, I know, that was awful. Awful.
INGRAHAM: That was bizarre.
O’REILLY: It was awful.
INGRAHAM: I mean, they showed the security camera in the photos. They think they’re being patriotic when every day page after page after page is devoted to what’s wrong with America and what America is doing wrong. That’s their vision of being patriotic. We have — I have a different vision of what being patriotic is.
