Tom Green on Bill O'Reilly Show (transcript)
This is funny. What an airbag O'Lielly is. Forcing Tom Green to defend rap music when Green isn't a rapper of any sort...typical rightwing pundit tactics...

Excerpt ( http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,96852,00.html ):

O'REILLY: You thought it was violent. You thought they were exploiting people who are hopeless people, and, you know, doing all the wrong things. Fine. And I'm with you. I'm right there with you. I think this is awful, and, if I were a district attorney where this was going on, I'd find a way to prosecute the people who did it. But to varying degrees, there are other things involved now.

Now let's show the Madonna thing. Now here we have the largest MTV situation in the year, and you have a lot of children watching this. I'm -- you know, that's, again, parental whatever, but the kids are watching. So they have to kiss, do a little lesbianism thing out there.

I don't mind. I'm an adult. I don't care. I think Madonna's a dope, and I don't know the other two. To me, she can do that all day long. It doesn't -- it doesn't bother me. But if I have a 10-year-old girl watching this, and then she turns to me and goes what's that, you know, I -- I don't think it should be in my living room. You know what...

GREEN: Yes.

O'REILLY: And why is it there in the first place? What is the reason for that?

GREEN: Well, I don't really know a lot about what went into that. I know that, you know, that's probably just pure entertainment. I don't really see any big thing to object about that, but...

O'REILLY: All right. Well, let's say you have a 10-year-old daughter, OK, and she's watching this stuff because she'd watch MTV, you're on it. Would you want her to see it?

GREEN: That would be kind of weird if I -- well, I -- I think people understand that it's just a show and that it's for fun, and -- no, I don't really think that there's anything wrong with that. Do you object to it really that strongly?

O'REILLY: Not as an adult.

GREEN: I don't think it's really that big a deal.

O'REILLY: Not as an adult.

GREEN: I mean I can...

O'REILLY: But the marketing's for children. See, the marketing is for children. This is like HBO in the middle of the night. I don't care. But it-- I just asked you a question that you neatly dodged. If you had a 10-year-old girl and she saw that, do you think that's appropriate?

GREEN: I wouldn't use the word "appropriate" or "inappropriate." I think it's just something that I would have to sit down with my daughter, and I would talk to her about how -- what was going on and that they were just, you know, clearly doing something to be entertaining and silly and shocking perhaps, but I think it's probably more important that parents talk to their kids, and...

O'REILLY: Oh, so do I, but I don't know why MTV continues to do this other -- I do know why. They want to make money.

All right. Let's get to the music industry, which I think has been very, very harmful to unsupervised children throughout the country. Now we got this guy Eminem (search), OK? And he's a multimillionaire now, and he has exploited the rage of disenfranchised young adults and kids who are -- feel that society is bad to them. Do you see him doing anything wrong?

GREEN: You know, I mean, I -- like I said, I watch your show all the time, Bill, and I think maybe you sort of don't fully understand rap music, and I'm not the exact, you know, hip-hop authority of America. I don't know everything about rap music. I've probably listened to more of it than you have.

But I think that it's -- it's -- basically, you have to look at rap music like a movie, OK? This is -- Eminem has satire in his lyrics, parody in his lyrics. I mean he's made fun of me in one of his songs, and I think -- which is, you know, a pretty easy target, to be honest with you.

But, you know, I don't really see that you can get any more riled up about rap music than you can about a movie. You know, there's people getting killed in "The Godfather," in, you know, movies all the time...

O'REILLY: All right. So let me...

GREEN: ... and so it's just someone expressing...

O'REILLY: ... tell you why you're wrong because this is...

GREEN: ... their...

O'REILLY: You know, a movie is a movie. It's a one-shot deal. This is a culture that's been created by the big corporations. Eminem's a..

GREEN: Well, movies are a huge part of our culture too, Bill. I mean it's the...

O'REILLY: All right, but it's a one-shot...

GREEN: I mean it's the same exact thing.

O'REILLY: Every movie is a one-shot deal, all right. This isn't. This is a culture. Eminem's a puppet, and so are the gangsta rappers.

Here's the -- here's the deal. I had two inner-city grammar school teachers in here. They taught fifth grade, all right, and I said to them what influence has all of this rap -- gangsta rap primarily -- had on your children, and they both said to me we now have 10-year-old boys calling 10-year-old girls bitches and hos, OK?

Now is this...

GREEN: Yes. Again, I think, Bill...

O'REILLY: Whoa, whoa. Mr. Green...

GREEN: I think...

O'REILLY: Is this the kind of society...

GREEN: I think that...

O'REILLY: ...that you want to live in?

GREEN: Yes, I think that gets back to what we were talking about earlier, though, with the Madonna-Britney kiss situation, is I think, you know, if you're sitting there with your kid and your kid's listening to this music and starts saying "bitches" and "'hos"...

That's kind of fun, to be able to say "bitches" and "'hos" on the Fox News Channel. Can I -- I can just say that on the Fox News Channel?

O'REILLY: You bet you can.

GREEN: Really? Well, we should be...

O'REILLY: Yes. We've already said it.

GREEN: Well, we should be careful. There could be kids watching.

O'REILLY: Well, listen, this is a news program, and it's in context to what's happening, OK?

GREEN: Yes, I...

O'REILLY: This is happening.

GREEN: I understand.

O'REILLY: And you have...

GREEN: I understand.

O'REILLY: You have millions of unsupervised children, not...

GREEN: No, we're not -- we're not...

(CROSSTALK)

O'REILLY: ... who have adopted...

GREEN: No, but, Bill...

O'REILLY: Wait, wait, wait, Mr. Green. They've adopted this lifestyle.

GREEN: We're not...

(CROSSTALK)

O'REILLY: ... have adopted this lifestyle to their detriment.

GREEN: OK, but what -- let me -- let me finish my point, though. My point is that I -- I listened to a lot of rap music when I was growing up, and, again, I didn't even think we were talking about music today on the show, but that's fine. I thought we were going to talk about comedy, but...

O'REILLY: Well, you work for MTV.

3. Tom Green walked O'Reilly right into it!!!

5. O'Reilly says his show is a news program?
O'Reilly turns so many people off because he won't let his 'guests'get a word in edgewise. The news is: a show all about Bill Reilly and what he thinks.

6. o reily is a joke
No spin zone my ass

and my school (Kent state university) just spent $82,000 to bring him up here in a private jet.

ANyway, I wish things could be just as they were during the WW2 and prohibition era before there was evil scary gangsta rap. Everything must have so peaceful then.

12. He hosts a show on MTV, I believe.
This is his second show there, and he's a comedian by trade.

8. Every movie is a one-shot deal?
How many times have Star Wars and The Godfather been released in theaters?
How many people own films on VHS and DVD?

Since O'Reilly is so obsessed with MTV he ought to watch that Cribs shows where they go around to all the celebrities houses and count how many times he sees references to Scarface.

10. at work
Bill was probably at work talking about "gangsta rappers" and "welfare mothers" while his 10 year old was sitting on the couch crying at the TV confused over the Madonna kiss. He could have been at home explaining to her why Jesus, and he, hate anything other than the status quo. On a sidenote, I should have had it so good when I was 10. When I was 10 I was watching MTV wondering why a girl was kissing a girl, only then one of the girls had a hairy chest and a pink guitar with lightning bolts on it. The 80's were a much more confusing time.

I can't believe that he said he likes watching O'Reilly's show, though. :puke:

14. I doubt he really likes the show.
Maybe he figured stroking Bill's ego would make Bill feel more charitable with airtime, and let Tom Green speak for a minute. Fat chance, Tom.

15. Bill couldn't take his eyes off two women french kissing

Sure, Bill. Right. Tell us what you really did when Britney and Madonna laid a liplock on each other, Bill.

You jerked off, didn't you Bill. Furiously.
