Back when Bill O'Reilly wasn't completely insane.
So I'm looking through a video game news site and i find a clip from one of those nightly news shows in 1988. the clip reports on the early days of nintendo. much to my surprise after watching most of the video i read the poster's comments and saw the name Bill O'Reilly, i then recognized the anchor as a young, and passably saner O'Reilly

1. Maybe it was SHIEFFER who pushed him off the deep end
O'LOOFAH claims that in his "war correspondent" days (the Faulkland Islands WAR), he had this HUGH!!!1 story that he did all the work on, and the Bigs made the decision for the PROMINENT network correspondent, SCHIEFFER, not the flunky O'LOOFAH, be the on-air reader. This is called "big footing." It INCENSED O'Loofah, and we know what THAT looks like.

You're kidding, right? Or is it just comparative sanity?

7. Bill O'Reilly seems to have been normal in those days.
He wasn't ranting against the ACLU.
