O'Reilly is the new McCarthy

Check this out... Aaron Schwartz finds eerie similarities between the rhetoric of witch hunter Joe McCarthy and Fox News blowhard Bill O'Reilly. Here's just one example:
MCCARTHY: If a stupid, arrogant or witless man in a position of power appears before our Committee and is found aiding the Communist Party, he will be exposed. The fact that he might be a General places him in no special class as far as I am concerned.

OREILLY: The only thing we can do is hold people who raise and give money to the ACLU accountable. In the weeks to come, The Factor will tell you who these people and organizations are, so you can decide whether or not you want to do business with them.
