Follow-up on Clooney vs. O'Reilly

Well, some considerable money might go where that considerable mouth is, after all. Bill O'Reilly has accepted George Clooney's invitation (challenge?) to appear on NBC's Tsunami Aid telethon this coming Saturday.

"NBC has faxed us over information that all of the money that you donate to the telethon on Saturday night is going to the American Red Cross -- all of it," said O'Reilly on his radio show Tuesday. "I like that. So, I'm gonna go over and do it."

Part of me thinks O'Reilly just didn't want Clooney to have the last word. But that's being mean, considering O'Reilly looks like a stand-up guy here. A good cause is worth burying a hatchet for.
