Why legitimize these un-indicted co-conspirators? And why not describe who and what they are? Why leave out all the terror ties?
Of course, Hooper exposed his fangs when El Al was mentioned. Calling it racist - this coming from a vicious Jew hater. Self defense is racist!
Does O'Reilly ever have Robert Spencer or Andrew Bostom or Ibn Warraq or any scholar on Islam discussing these same issues? Ever. He goes to ahem Laura Ingraham as his resident know-nothing on Islam. She is really clueless.

UPDATE: I loved this comment from Atlas reader Davod:
O'Reilly is an irritating pompous ass over-enamoured with his own success, full of hubris, misleading ideas about "balance" and fairness, and is so rude in the way he uses his guests whom he often interrupts and doesn't allow them the courtesy to finish a sentence.
Here with CAIR, however, we see how his hubris and pomposity can also be dangerous & misleading. The medium is the message, and giving them any platform inevitably does more harm than whatever good (he thinks) his clever interviewing may do. Bad advertising is better than none, and here O'Reilly has fallen into a trap of his own making. Why isn't he at least bringing into the picture experts who can cope with the (s)CAIR tac(iya)tics.
OTOH, he has the audience and does have interesting guests (sometimes) and some catchy features.
