Anti-pot group Smart Colorado found this past weekend's 4/20 celebration "shocking" -- but a report from Bill O'Reilly's Fox News juggernaut, The O'Reilly Factor, turns the event into a punchline, albeit while portraying participants as sadly clueless idiots. The report, from regular correspondent Jesse Watters, juxtaposes snippets of stoners making hazy comments like "I love chocolate bunnies," "I wake up, smoke a bowl, go to sleep, wake up, smoke a bowl, go to work" and "I'm a trust-fund kid -- I don't do anything" with comedic film clips, like one from Dumb and Dumber in which Jim Carrey declares, "You are one pathetic loser!" That's followed by an interview segment in which Watters acknowledges that some people at 4/20 "had real jobs -- bartenders or they worked with their hands," but they "don't really aspire to anything."
