03-09-2008 12:25Obama & Mc Cain will debate several times for live TV audiences before the election like all presidential candidates since Kennedy beat Nixon. But there was no FOXnews for Nixon's first attempt and not even O'Reilly had been recognised as the loudest & most verbally abusive and perversely popular and astoundingly influential spokesman of American rightwing christians, militarists & "voters".
This Thursday at 8pm Eastern Time Obama goes head to head with O'Reilly on the channel which has consistently smeared him since February 2007.
