Bill O'Reilly Compares CNN to the Pittsburgh Pirates

Tonight, Bill O'Reilly was at Fenway Park with Mitt Romney to watch the Boston Red Sox get shilacked by the Toronto Blue Jays.

O'Reilly briefly joined Red Sox announcers Jerry Remy and Don Orsillo in the booth. When Rem Dawg asked him how long his show had been the number one news show on cable he indicated it was "nine years going on ten." O'Reilly added that he had been beating CNN in the ratings for so long that they were "the Pittsburgh Pirates of cable television."

That is much too cruel. While CNN might have spent a decade in the doldrums they have nothing on the Bucs. Tonight, the Pirates collected their 82nd loss of the 2010 season when they fell to the New York Mets 7-2. The Pirates have officially endured their 18th consecutive losing season.

CNN has a long way to go before they sink to the Pirates' lowliness.
