BILL O’REILLY’S SCREECHY SCREED AGAINST THE INTERNET (discussed below) isn’t impressing many people. After saying that O’Reilly is coming to resemble Dr. Laura (ouch!) James Lileks notes: “Oh, get a grip.”

Eugene Volokh, meanwhile, administers a polite Fisking, pointing out, well, just how dumb O’Reilly’s criticism of “the Internet” really is.

And Matt Welch drives in the stake:

Among Bungalow Bill’s more confident assertions is that “you can bet you won’t be seeing many corrections on the net.” This is true, narrowly — O’Reilly’s June 7 column misidentifying Los Angeles Times Editor John Carroll as John “Roberts” has yet to be corrected on the Web sites of either Creators Syndicate or AOL’s Intellivu.

Ouch, again.

ANOTHER UPDATE: And “ouch” one more time.
