I'd like to say his potshots to WiiFit were due to the fact that he was a closet 360 or PS3 player, but I think anyone remotely interested in gaming knows how to pronounce "Wii."

Wait till the guy does a few dozen jackknives, then ask him if it's a workout. That's really not the best example of what the game offers, but I did find his reaction to it funny.

This is the only thing that could have made the O'Reilly meltdown better. If the machine he were looking at were Wii Fit, and not in fact a teleprompter.

Remember when he was a reporter for Channel One news and went to Bosnia? Or when he hosted World News Now? That was awesome! Gunmetal Grey for life!

But back on topic, I've been asking that myself for years.

Man, and I thought he was a cool guy when he was an anchor on Channel One. He just proved me wrong.

Got a kick out of that last night. Wii Fit was featured prominently on America This Morning or whatever they call it and it got a thumbs up from Dr. Sanjay Gupta. Sanjay > The Coop!

Realistically, he was not referring to Wii Fit when he said why would you want to do that... He was referring to a relatively goofy specific activity within Wii Fit.

He'll be okay. Renee Zellweger is still foaming for him.

haha that guy is awesome.

"Why would you do this?"

Notice how she didn't have an answer for that. It was a good run Nintendo.

God, it was forever ago. He stood out as he did real stories and everyone else felt like fluff.

Hahaha. I was watching this show for a bit yesterday, but I turned it off before it got to this part. Can't blame him...the stepping game looks pretty lame, and it looked like they were trying to get him to advertise it by using it on tv...on his birthday.
