Salon I saw the episode last night, and the article does a very good job of recapping what went down. I would add one thing. At a couple of points, Letterman asked him to defend the Iraq war, and when O'Reilly opened his mouth to answer, Letterman interrupted him and went on complaining about the loss of life. O'Reilly looked frustrated at not being given a chance to respond. But I can only fault Dave for his lack of etiquette, not his passion. You could see clearly that Letterman felt strongly about this issue, and that's why he was fairly in a rush to get his thoughts out. I like Dave a little more today. And I'm surprised O'Reilly didn't tell him to shut up.
