• KURTZ: Well hold on. Hold on, come on, don't -- let me finish a sentence here. It probably is true of commentators who are marching in solidarity with Barack Obama. But it is not true for many in the mainstream media who while very soft in the 2008 campaign and I talked about this and wrote about it at the time have been more diligent in covering this president.

    O'REILLY: There is a difference between hard news reporting and analysis and my discussion with Beckel solely was on analysis. We appreciate you coming on, a very lively debate. We are sure you will get a lot of e-mail on it run it on your program on Sunday and you'll get higher ratings. Being you because you're my pal.
