Adam Carolla Defends O'Reilly, Calls Out Biased Press

Adam Carolla knows it's no accident entertainment scribes bring up his "right wing" politics at every turn.

The podcast king called out biased entertainment reports during a feisty Q&A with RollingStone.com. The interviewer stirred the pot by asking if Carolla got flak from his Hollywood pals for appearing on The O'Reilly Factor, the highly rated pundit show on Fox News.

Not from friends, but when Variety does a review of Catch a Contractor, they have to start it off by announcing that Adam Carolla, “one of Fox News' dancing clowns” is insane. I don't know what one has to do with the other. You know this town, they do this thing where it's like, “The media is not left-leaning.” Really? Why do half the reviews that involve me have to work politics into then a show that has no politics in it. If Janeane Garofalo came out with a show, would you start it with her politics and then get on to the contracting stuff?

Carolla, whose new book President Me streets May 13, then blasted CNN for distorting the news and defended O'Reilly for daring to share commonsense viewpoints the Left attacks.

I would challenge anyone who just think a guy like O'Reilly is some sort of right-wing hate monster. Listen to what his points of views are on many different topics. Most of it comes down to common sense. It may be stuff you don't want to hear, it may be stuff that some people don't want to hear and some communities don't want to hear, but it doesn't mean it's not true.
