O’Reilly really doesn’t care about Barkin remarks

Bill O’Reilly doesn’t care on whit about what Ellen Barkin said about him on Joy Behar’s show. Just couldn’t care less. It had no impact on him at all.

We know that Bill O’Reilly doesn’t care about what Ellen Barkin said about him on Joy Behar’s show because O’Reilly said he doesn’t care. Last Thursday night on the air, he made it clear: “In the big picture, what Ellen Barkin says — not important.”

Last night we received yet further confirmation that Bill O’Reilly doesn’t care about what Ellen Barkin said. In a segment with Bernie Goldberg, O’Reilly said this: “I don’t care what they say about me.”

Could Bill O’Reilly be any clearer on the question of whether he cares about what Ellen Barkin said about him on Joy Behar’s show? Only if he devotes some additional air time to the matter over the coming days. Then we’ll know that he really, really, really doesn’t care.
