Bono on O'Reilly Factor?

Didn't know if anyone had heard anything more about this, but Drudge Report has the following headline posted:

"Bono-Bill O'Reilly sitdown set at FOX... Developing..."

No other info available, though. Just thought I'd pass it on.

Anyone want to take any bets on how long it takes O'Reilly to start yelling, "SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP! CUT HIS MIKE!"? I say three minutes.

Whoa! That'll be something! So I assume that Bono is still going to the Republican Convention? He'd better keep his word. He sure wouldn't look very non-partisan if he showed up at one convention and was a no-show at the other (especially after saying he would go to both).

I can't imagine Bono legitimizing O'Whatshisass like that.

Bono doesn't have time to waste on a non-essential debate with BO. He wouldn't be able to get his message across because of BO's tendency to have and hold the conversation/spotlight. I'm not saying Bono couldn't stand up to him, but it would be futile since BO doesn't have anything to do with policy/desicion making. That's not to say it won't happen, but I really doubt it.

It will probably be a calm exchange. O'Reilly only gets mad when you dodge questions. Bono will be straight forward. I'm sure O'Reilly also will respect that Bono is not a "pinhead celebrity bombthrower" and is not overtly partisan.

Actually Bono could do his cause a service by appearing on O'Reilly where he can expose himself and the cause as legitimate and not just another typical celebrity stunt/cause.

And you will probably be surprised how much O'Reilly respects him. What exactly can he challenge him about? I've heard him give Bono some slight praise in the past. His show did an entire segment on that Newsweek article (maybe it was Time?) that had a list of the 50 most influential people in our culture (or whatever) and Bono was fairly high on the list. O'Reilly went straight down the list making fun of every celebrity on the list, besides, you guessed it, Bono. He may not be in love with the guy but he does respect him.

If anything O'Reilly bringing him on the show to expose a 'supposed' leftist celebrity activist who doesn't think Bush is Satan and takes on issues and plays fair with both sides of the aisle. I think it could legitamize Bono, the One Campaign and DATA
in the eyec of many skeptical right wingers who just see Bono as some bleeding heart celeb with a cause.

I think it will be cool, actually and really can only make Bono look better. Because I don't see O'Reilly taking him to task over anything, maybe the F-bomb at the Golden Globes, but I see an affable Bono just making fun of himself over that.

O'Reilly plays fair sometimes, believe it or not. It's not like I'm a huge fan of his, but he's fun to watch.

I don't see Bono's appearance on his show being a debate type of issue to be honest. There is nothing for O'Reilly to challenge Bono about. This wont be like when Michael Moore appeared.

Should be an interesting conversation, if it happens.

What Does Bono Want From Us? by Bill O'Reilly

O'Reilly will probably start his usual celebrities know nothing about politics and/ or their causes rant, which doesn't apply to Bono.

I hope it's true, I look forward to this interview. I'm sure even Bill realizes that Bono could wipe the floor w/ him in any debate situation

I'm sure as w/ all other interviews, Bono will be completely charming, polite, and well-informed..
