Sam Donaldson: O'Reilly "Stirs Up His Yahoos" With War-on-Christmas Talk

When the panel discussion on this morning's ABC's 'This Week' turned to the 'War on Christmas,' Sam Donaldson had this to say [close approximation]:

"With his talk of a war on Christmas, Bill O'Reilly stirs up his yahoos."

Donaldson then paused and added "in his audience."

However you slice it, Donaldson managed to slur both O'Reilly and a good chunk of his viewership.

Valid observation, or griping by a bitter, jealous man who used to be a significant media fixture?
