The invaluable Jackie Corr sends along this delicious link to a Drudge Report item saying that Bill O'Reilly's sales figures on his new book are vastly overstated. O'Reilly's response: "You can't believe a word that Matt Drudge says." Which actually is true, but it reminds me of a call that O'Reilly took one day from a woman who said that his book ranked No. 15 on the best-seller list rather than No. 1, as he had been claiming. O'Reilly called her a liar and hung up. I guess you can't believe a word that radio talk-show callers say either, but she sure didn't sound like a liar.
