Reeve said Tuesday night that his family picked the name Muhammad after teaching their children that in some parts of the world they could be sentenced to death for doing so.

"Free speech issues aside, Mr. Reeve is a pinhead," O'Reilly said during the short "pinhead and patriots" segment his Fox News show. "Why offend Muslims if you don't have to? You wanna teach your children about tolerance there are plenty of others way to do it."

I guess that would fall under the category of O'Reilly's freedom of speech.

If anyone knows a pinhead, it is the king of pinheads, the self described second most powerful man in the world

While publicly announcing the unfortunate name of his dog was not the wisest action of Councilman Reeve, the person(s) informing the international media could be endangering Reeve and his family. The informer(s) has/have much less wisdom than the Councilman and would be guilty of aiding and abetting if something bad happens.

Don't you think Reeve brought that upon himself when he announced it during a session of local government. Once it was on Patch it was around south OC and then the Register got ahold of it. Reeve is responsible for his own actions.

My guess is that O'Reilly does not read the OCR.
Dan September 23, 2011 at 08:16 PM
Are you serious? Really? All major news organization scour local newspapers looking for the next big story, especially FOX News, CNN, and MSNBC because they have 24 hours to fill. Responsibility rests with Reeve.

Some are just looking for an alibi to stick Reeve in the eye for his pro-Constitution, pro-fiscal responsibility, pro-Brown Act stance.

Well, Fox did link directly to the Patch story. :-) http://nation.foxnews.com/derek-reeve/2011/09/22/councilman-trouble-naming-his-dog-muhammad

Pro fiscal responsibility? He declared bankruptcy and did not pay back his credit cards and student loans -- some of which were backed by taxpayers! How do you call him fiscally responsible, PJD?
Dan September 24, 2011 at 12:15 AM
PJD An alibi? Do you know the definition for alibi? Are you saying that some were looking for proof that they were in a different location when they were accused of sticking Reeve in the eye?

Dan - PJD also wants the government to keep it's hands off his/her medicare
