Blame Canada! 

Bill O'Reilly last week:
A Canadian cable company, citing a growing demand for the FOX News Channel, had petitioned an application with their government to carry us. Now columnists on the far left "Toronto Globe & Mail" wrote: "Bring it on, we're all in a good need of a laugh. We'll find out if this Bill O'Reilly fellow is as stupendously pompous and preening as he appears to be in the rare clips we see of FOX News."

So they see rare clips, but think we're laughable. "The Globe & Mail" (search) sounds like a real responsible enterprise, doesn't it? Hey, you pinheads up there, I may be pompous but at least I'm honest.
And then, a few days later, a much wiser Canadian speaks...
Writing in The Toronto Sun, Peter Worthington said this today: "Whenever I return from an extended visit in the U.S., I feel withdrawal pangs because FOX News is denied access to Canada. With access to CNN but not FOX News, Canadians are being deprived. One needs both for better understanding, Bill O'Reilly's view of politics versus James Carville's"
However, in the last two days, O'Reilly has finally found the perfect solution when one citizen of a country insults you...
Last night, we told you about two American Army privates who deserted, fled to Canada, and are being hailed by heroes by some Canadian media. The two have filed for asylum even though they are not entitled to it under Canadian law. We said that if granted asylum, "Talking Points" would call for a boycott of Canadian goods and services by all Americans.
That's right! In an amazing coincidence, just a few days after O'Reilly discovered that large numbers of Canadians don't like him, he called for a boycott of that country. I wonder how many hard working Canadian citizens will lose their jobs because of the idiots who listen to O'Reilly and do what he says. And of course, this is the same Bill O'Reilly who once said:
The main point here is that trying to hurt a business or a person because you disagree with what they say is simply unacceptable in America. And that message has been sent by FOX. There's a principle in play. Vigorous debate is embraced by us, but smear campaigns will be confronted.
