O' BROTHER: The announcement that Bill O'Reilly is making the jump to talk radio left me with only one burning question: Why? O'Reilly already cleans up with Fox News to the tune of tens of millions a year (I believe the figure is $20 million, but I haven't been able to verify that), he cleans up with his syndicated column, his only novel is being turned into a movie by Mel Gibson. Why talk radio?

A friend speculated that it's the next logical thing; what else is he going to do? But it might be more reasonably characterized as a bad idea whose time has come. There are only so many hours in a day - even for Bill O'Reilly - and something's going to suffer. Either his column is going to get worse (unlikely), or his personal life will get a little chaotic, or his television show will lose its edge or, my pick, the radio program is going to tank faster than Elton John at a Jerry Falwell convention.
