O'Reilly says flap over hubcaps crack at fundraiser is "foolish"

Washington Post

Bill O'Reilly, emceeing a fundraiser for inner-city schoolchildren, asked of the young men scheduled to perform: "Does anyone know where the 'Best Men' are? I hope they're not in the parking lot stealing our hubcaps." One attendee tells Lloyd Grove: "To say that this conservative audience -- dominated undoubtedly by many of Mr. O'Reilly's biggest fans -- was aghast, is an understatement." O'Reilly says "This is ridiculous and foolish. ...Everybody was happy. I don't want to comment on anything else."
