Many emails dealt with the segment on far left web sites such as MoveOn.Org and Media Matters, which are lavishly funded by billionaires George Soros and Peter Lewis. Some excerpts:
Diana Lovejoy, Buckfield, ME: "I equate the Bush administration with fascism. I support Media Matters."
Don Stacy, Houston, TX: "Bill, thanks for informing us that Peter Lewis is the CEO of Progressive Insurance. I have cancelled my policy."
Mary Kay, Chicago, IL: "Bill, surely you jest. The Factor and Fox News invented the concept of smearing."
Frank Gutting, San Antonio, TX: "Mr. O, the left attacks you personally because they have no constructive solutions to major problems. The smear tactics you encounter are a desperate attempt to impose radical views on this country."
Capt. Christ Dalton, San Diego, CA: "The smearing is rampant on both sides. Instead of engaging in honest debate, we the people are forced to listen to lies and garbage."
