A Little Frank Talk On The WikiLeaks Story

Bill O’Reilly goes off on President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder on not being emotional (or in the President’s case, mentioning) over the leaked secret documents by the website headed by Julian Assange. He also wants Assange arrested / extradited and persecuted in the United States, and charge whoever leaked those documents with treason.

Watch O’Reilly’s talking points memo and subsequent discussion with Megyn Kelly here:
O’Reilly: WikiLeaks Leakers Are Traitors, Should Be Executed Or Spend Life In Jail (VIDEO)

Okay, a few things:
1. You know that a story is overblown when Megyn Kelly is trying to sound reasonable in a debate-ish discussion with Bill-O.
2. By ‘overblown­’ I mean that the general American public doesn’t really care about the U.S. State Department leaking documents because they have to worry about their jobs, feeding their kids, health insurance, etc, which is why…
3. …Preside­nt Obama didn’t mention the leaks on his conference because he has more pressing economic issues to worry about.
4. By the way, speaking with emotion adds nothing to the substance of one’s comments, unless you’re on the campaign trail and want to fire up the crowd.
