Rick Sanchez and Bill O'Reilly Get in Media Catfight

Best Of is coming up, and I'm sure that's always Rick Sanchez's favorite issue. After all, back in the days of Rick's time on WSVN, we used to have a category called "Least Credible News Personality" that he won so many times we named it after him. But ever since Rick went to CNN and got Twitter-obsessed, we've been slowly warming up to him. 

Bill O'Reilly, though, isn't a fan (by the way, did you know that Bill O'Reilly used to be a film critic at the Miami Herald years and years ago?). The two got in a media cat fight. O'Reilly attacked CNN for not covering the shooting of an Army recruiter, while in fact Sanchez showed clip after clip of CNN's coverage of the story (clip above). 

Well, Bill O'Reilly apologized, but in a backhanded way. Only referring to Sanchez as a "snide and surly guy on CNN." Clip after the cut. Ladies, ladies. Settle down.
