The Michael Jackson trial continued to elicit many strong opinions. Some excerpts:
Don Snyder, Lompac, CA: "Bill, I applaud you for confronting Jesse Jackson directly. I predict he will not respond on The Factor."
Andre Paige, Hyattsville, MD: "Mr. O'Reilly, I believe Jesse Jackson's support for Michael Jackson just adds to his upstanding reputation."
Beverly Meier, Bakersfield, CA: "O'Reilly, I was impressed with the way you treated the young man on the Jackson jury. His logic was so lacking you could have belittled him, but you didn't."
Casey Boyd, Norman, OK: "Mr. O'Reilly, stop criticizing the jury. You are undermining the legal system."
Doug Somers, Franklin, WI: "Bill, I wouldn't want my children associating with Michael Jackson, but that doesn't mean he's guilty of anything. I wouldn't want my kids associating with you, either, because of your religious right bias."
Bill Mitchell, Philippines: "Bill, you asked the juror what happens if Jackson does it again, implying that he had committed the crime."
