Fox News' Bill O'Reilly apparently unaware the moon exists

January 10, 2011 | 12:14 pm

I was going to have some fun with the fact that Bill O'Reilly apparently thinks that God is the guy who controls the tide coming in and coming out. But when it comes to inspired satire, no one does it better than Stephen Colbert. He invited everyone's favorite astrophycisist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, over to "The Colbert Report" to explain what really controls the tides. No one's saying that O'Reilly doesn't get great TV ratings, but it seems hard to believe that he ever passed any of his fifth grade science exams.
