O'Reilly loves to cut microphones

No commentary here, I just wanted to record this link:

O'Reilly revived an interview tactic he has made common -- cutting the guest's mike:

August 10 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly revived a long-standing practice of shutting off the microphone of a guest, in this case, Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable communications director Jasmyne Cannick. The August 10 incident on Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly marks at least the 11th time that O'Reilly has shut off a guest's microphone on either his television or radio show, usually to retain control over or to end an interview. He last resorted to this on August 6, 2004. Perhaps the most famous incident was O'Reilly's barking to anti-war protestor Jeremy Glick to "shut up" and ordering his microphone cut.

This link records the number of times O'Reilly has cut his guest's microphone.
