Bill O'Rielly vs. Roger Ebert

Not really a fair fight. Ebert took on O'Rielly a few weeks ago on his blog; and it's well worth reading. That said Ebert does come across as a bit of wanting to live in the past.

The problem is that he weeps for a loss of a moral authority that the news-media once held. Once there was a national media that everybody listened to. But as we have gotten more voices and that moral authority has dissipated, one voice is as good as another. In some ways this is good, and in others it's bad.
