“the only problem talking about Sarah Palin is that she works here and it’s like a co-worker. And if I say something bad and I see her in the hallway I feel really awkward and wrong. So I just kind of say, ‘That was a good job.'” – Greg Gutfeld of FOX News

I see two possible options:
(1) The first statement was very, very funny. Go back and read it again, I was rolling on the floor.
(2) It’s against the FOX News commandments to ever suggest that they are biased, even if it’s as obvious as Pinocchio’s gigantic nose. (It’s might burst the bubble of FOX News viewers who are involved in deep self-delusion.)
To be fair, I know that O’Reilly has come down on Sarah Palin as being an idiot. I have a feeling that FOX News can’t muzzle O’Reilly, short of kicking him off the network entirely, which they won’t do.
