Bill O’Reilly vs. art

Bill O'Reilly is launching an absurd defense of his co-workers at Fox & Friends for their childish photoshopping of two reporters they didn't like. He says The New York Times are hypocrites for once hiring editorial cartoonist Ward Sutton to draw an illustration of him. (not particularly vicious caricatures either.)

He calls it "the most hypocritical situation we have ever seen."

Beside seizing any opportunity to attack the Times, Bill seems to be making an "all or nothing" argument here. Either all media outlets agree to never hire an illustrator to draw someone and run only approved portraits...or it's ok to manipulate photographs of enemies, make them look ugly and pass them off as real on a "news" show.
