In a segment where BillO and Howard Kurtz were criticizing MSNBC for not punishing Martin Bashir, BillO took a moment to attack Sarah Palin for not coming on his show, saying doesn’t want to mix it up with him, she just wants to give a speech:
Do you want to be frank, Howard? Sarah Palin won’t do this program. She won’t come on the program because she doesn’t want to mix it up. She just wants to give a speech; nobody gives speeches here. Okay? So she doesn’t come on. We invited her on tonight. You are in her stead. But U don’t begrudge Sarah Palin that. She can come on. If she doesn’t come on, if she does come on, whatever she wants to do okay? Fine.
No, it doesn’t sound like he begrudges her does it? He just openly attacks her, inferring she’s afraid of coming on his show because she doesn’t want to ‘mix it up’ with him. But he doesn’t begrudge her. No.
