Bill O’Reilly and Jennifer Aniston public feud

The tabloid press ability to manufacture controversy out of thin air is business as usual, it’s expected and no one with half a brain takes it seriously. True to the current trend of the mainstream press using this tactic in their own fashion, Fox News and Ballyhoo Bill O’Reilly have decided to manufacture a controversy with comments made by Jen during “The Switch” press junket.

One would think Hollywood Life or Star Magazine was the producer at Fox “News”.

From the New York Daily News:

“Women are realizing more and more that you don’t have to settle, they don’t have to fiddle with a man to have that child,” she said, according to PopEater. “They are realizing if it’s that time in their life and they want this part, they can do it with or without that.” – Jennifer Aniston

Ballyhoo Bill said ( amongst other equally useless remarks ) that [Jennifer Aniston is ] “destructive to our society,” and accused her of “diminishing the role of the dad.”

Yesterday Jen fired back a response through People Magazine:

“Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth,” Aniston tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options.” – Jennifer Aniston

Bill O’Reilly needs to find a new profession and Fox “News” needs a new name. I’m thinking The Fox Gossip Network.
