Anti-pot group Smart Colorado found this past weekend's 4/20 celebration "shocking" -- but a report from Bill O'Reilly's Fox News juggernaut, The O'Reilly Factor, turns the event into a punchline, albeit while portraying participants as sadly clueless idiots. The report, from regular correspondent Jesse Watters, juxtaposes snippets of stoners making hazy comments like "I love chocolate bunnies," "I wake up, smoke a bowl, go to sleep, wake up, smoke a bowl, go to work" and "I'm a trust-fund kid -- I don't do anything" with comedic film clips, like one from Dumb and Dumber in which Jim Carrey declares, "You are one pathetic loser!" That's followed by an interview segment in which Watters acknowledges that some people at 4/20 "had real jobs -- bartenders or they worked with their hands," but they "don't really aspire to anything."

Check out the report below.

Who looked stupider in that video, a super stoned 20 something, or a 40 year old man who still pops his collar?

Bill O'r''l'y doesn't have any opinions, AFAIK. Regardless of the issue, he has buttons that his job requires him to push. I'm glad that he's helping to destroy conservatism...

He also showed that non-pot smokers are apathetic morons. I would take 100,000 pot smokers over one douchebag with a pink shirt and popped collar anyday.

I think they sought out the bad part of the crowd that helped to push their preconceived notions and agenda. I'm sure there were people that were lame and said stupid stuff just like there is at any event concert or outdoor festival but that doesn't mean it's an accurate depiction of the demographic of attendees unless they all lined up and did a written survey, which of course no one will do because that's tedious and dull, and tedious and dull is not the spirit of fun people show up with for any event unless it's a topic of focus that is intentionally upsetting or sad like war crimes, famine, disease or conflict. Plus people are very protective of their privacy and aren't going to dish out personal information anyway, it's unsafe and inappropriate. So all that's left is conjecture and comments from the peanut gallery. Hence the commentary and article. Bill o Riley is a mentally ill sensationalistic tool, he's not interested in accuracy, he's interested in ratings from an echo chamber viewership. He'll be canceled soon.
