When Jennifer Aniston's latest flick hits theaters this week, moviegoers will see the star portray a woman who decides to inseminate herself when she hasn't met the man of her dreams by her 41st birthday. In what is beginning to sound like an instance of life imitating art, the megastar has been discussing the role of men in starting a family while out promoting The Switch. In one quote, she said:
Women are realizing more and more that you don't have to settle, they don't have to fiddle with a man to have that child. They are realizing if it's that time in their life and they want this part they can do it with or without that.
Those words aren't sitting well with Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly. The conservative talk show host took to the airwaves last night to debate the topic of single motherhood, suggesting that teens will hear her message and not understand the difference between single motherhood as a teen compared to that as a mature adult. He said:
She's throwing a message out to 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds that, "Hey you don't need a guy. You don't need a dad." That is destructive to our society,
Given the high rates of teen pregnancy, do you find Jennifer Aniston's comments "destructive"?
Last night Bill O'Reilly took time to discuss Jennifer Aniston's recent support for single motherhood along with two Fox commentators, one of whom couldn't even remember that Jennifer was married to Brad Pitt. The charges against her: diminishing the role of the dad, glamorizing single parenthood, and confusing young people who don't have the "cognitive ability" to know that there is a difference between them and Aniston, who can "hire a battery of people" to help her raise kids. Here is what Jennifer actually said, while promoting her new movie: "Women are realizing it more and more knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child. Times have changed and that is also what is amazing is that we do have so many options these days."
One of Bill's sidekicks just can't imagine why anyone would want to have a nontraditional family. She said with palpable disdain in her voice: "Yeah women can have their own kids, and not have a husband and not have a partner, but why would you want to?"

Just days after conservative writer Brian Cherry said "The left is losing the pop culture media war in this country," Bill O'Reilly lamented it's actually winning. And he needs to stop it!
Today on the O'Reilly Factor, he took three minutes to complain that all shows — save 24 — mock right-wingers. He uses Glee as the prime example, citing a line from Tuesday's episode. When the guidance counselor complains girls have no female role models, she says, "You’ve got Britney Spears and her shaved head. Lindsey Lohan looks like something out of Lord of the Rings. Ann Coulter."
To get a fair and balanced argument, he brought in Fox News anchor Jane Skinner, who "defends" television. After all, she says, The Simpsons made fun of the Clintons "a couple times," and the president was called "Comrade Obama" on 30 Rock. A lame argument considering it was said by Alec Baldwin's conservative caricature of a character, and was surely designed to mock the right wing itself.

Last night Jon Stewart pondered how Bill O'Reilly — a staunch supporter of the constitutional right to privacy — could be outraged over paparazzi stalking celebrities, but have no trouble intimidating his political foes with cameraman ambushes.
Jon mashed up some Factor footage, but also let unedited clips do the work for him. In case you're wondering, an American's right to privacy is less than Bill O'Reilly's need to know.
