Joy Behar & Whoopi Goldberg Walk Off Set During Bill O'Reilly Interview

Here is some analysis of what happened when Fox commentator Bill O'Reilly came on "The View" leading to Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar storming off after O'Reilly's comments about 9/11.

What do you think about the exchange? Bill O'Reilly did state that "muslims" attacked the United States, but didn't qualify his statements that it was "extremists" rather than muslims in general who caused 9/11. Some may see that as a fine point, but I have to agree with Barbara Walters on this: you CANNOT demean and lump all persons of any religious group for the actions of an extreme portion of that group.

Cenk Uygur (host of TheYoungTurks) makes a good point - the person who bombed the Olympics was a christian fundamentalist and we do not state that because he was a christian that "christians bombed us" or lump all christian fundamentalists as somehow the cause of that incident, how can all muslims be automatically guilty by association?
