Billo unleashes Fox lawyers in attempt to sink critic's (Mike Stark) career
http://www.madville.com/link.php?id=176552&t=7

Host tries to get aggressive liberal blogger booted from law school

For Bill O'Reilly, ambushing your political enemies with a video camera is just fine, as long as the camera is pointed in the opposite direction.

Blogger Mike Stark has a history of haranguing O'Reilly during his call-in radio show, and he once visited the Fox host's house to mock him over sexual harassment allegations. And now Stark, 39, has become the target of a network executive working on behalf of the combative Fox News pundit. Fox VP Dianne Brandi has written to the dean of the Univeristy of Virginia's law school, where Stark is in his second year, urging an investigation of his conduct.

1. For what?
What Stark did had nothing to do with law school. The school really has no grounds to kick him out. I don't think Stark's conduct has been totally smart, but O'Reilly's clearly trying to get him any way he can. But he really has no grounds here.

2. I met Mike at Take Back America
and I am a great fan of his work. This really sucks, but I suspect he won't stop Mike, but rather encourage him and give him new ideas. :)

Billo is certainly not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

4.  I'm not familiar with Stark's stuff...
... but standing outside the guy's house is not smart, IMO. I can't stand O'Reilly, but that's going a bit too far. Still, Bill O' doesn't have grounds to get him kicked out of law school.

5. He used to have a website
calling all wingnuts

He would call right wing radio shows and post a tape of his conversation with the host on his website. He was hilarious.
