You spin me right round baby

I'm really fascinated now by Bill O'Reilly, especially since reading this Rolling tone article on the guy.

Just from the article and from this vid of him on Tim Russert's Meet the Press, I notice he has a knack of acting intimidating to the people he's supposed to be having a civil discourse with, getting very close to them physically, raising his voice and appealing to emotion rather than the heart of an issue.

Now I understand how he went from hosting Inside Edition to this. Tabloid journalist to demagogue despot of own his own little empire. Not much of a stretch really when you think about it.
