Never seen that on TV

Actually, I saw it live and they have a laugh at the end.

Agree with Geraldo there. O'Reiley's argument is just racism. It's the same as saying "A black man raped a white girl. This shows we need to get rid of black people. Are you sure we want to allow black people in this country? Oh you do? So you support rapists then?"
Not the same argument at all. I agree with Geraldo, that it really doesn't matter that he was an illegal alien, it was a drunk driving death. But, I do kind of see O'Reilly's point that we can't just have a 'chaotic' border. If we have a free for all at the border then long term we will pay for it.
I have already been a victim of bank account fraud where my funds were being taken out a little at a time. The bank didnt tell me if it was an immigrant or not, but if illegal immagrants are stealing account numbers and social security numbers, ids; this stuff will happen a lot more and chaos at the border will turn to chaos through out at the US.
Geraldo is right, everytime someone dies and an illegal was at the scene can't automatically equate to 'it was because of the illegal alien issue'. At the same time, O'Reilly is right, we should really start to look at the issue or this free-for-all border will really hurt us in the future.

Geraldo wasn't disagreeing about the border. Geraldo was saying that the fact the guy was a Mexican was not relevant, particularly since illegal aliens have much lower crime rates than the general population.
I agree with that. So O'Reilly is reall stretching here.

Wow, O'Reilly declaring a vendetta against the mayor of a city.
I guess O'Reilly really must have power then. No? Then he must be some kind of high elected official. No? Then he must be some kind of law enforcement official. No?
Then he must be some kind of conservative nut-job, who's lost sight of what his role is. "No spin zone" indeed.
