So Gary Kamiya wrote a piece the other day for Salon that included a paragraph that sounds inflammatory, taken out of context. Needless to say, Bill O’Reilly (and others) have done exactly that — cherry picked that one paragraph and milked it for maximum moron outrage without even mentioning the headline of the article from which it was taken. Salon has challenged O’Reilly to debate Kamiya via email. Not only is this a cheap publicity stunt, but it’s also brilliant. O’Reilly is more than happy to invite people onto his show so that he can shout them down and then have them cut off when they start wiping the floor with him (as all competent participants do), but I doubt that he’ll accept an argument where the odds are closer to even.
