Obama's appearence with Bill O'Reilly

I actually watched the entire interview, which Bill-O cut up and showed over four days. It was pretty cowardly, in that Bill and his panelists could set up and then analyze the clips, bringing all sorts of spin to the "no spin zone". But the following clip appeared on Letterman, with the interview footage re-cut to give the gist of the O'Reilly experience. O'Reilly oversimplifies issues and creates black-or-white questions that try to eliminate nuance. Worst of all, O'Reilly asks these ridiculous questions and then cuts off his guest as they try to answer.
