The Roanoke Times’ Erin Hutkin writes about the little to do between Bill O’Reilly and Roanoke Times Editorial Page Editor Dan Radmacher that got started when Radmacher wrote a column on the “War on Christmas” and Bill O’Reilly. (O’Reilly is still on his case as of last night)
Interviews with three local TV stations. Calls from readers. E-mails from everywhere — and a voicemail message from a friend joking he’s a “liberal loon.”
It was more reaction than Roanoke Times Editorial Page Editor Dan Radmacher expected from his Sunday column on the Horizon section front page.
The piece attacked the “‘War on Christmas’ nonsense” and cited TV commentator Bill O’Reilly as pushing it.
On Tuesday — on radio and on Fox’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” — the conservative host fired back.
