This April 10 blog discusses the manner in which Denver Post TV-and-radio writer Joanne Ostrow wound up being branded a left-wing idealogue by Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly on his weeknight staple, The O'Reilly Factor. But the story doesn't end there. When Ostrow declined to be interviewed on the Factor, she was ambushed in a Denver parking lot by O'Reilly producer Porter Berry, who parachuted in for the assignment. The results were aired on a subsequent Factor episode.
