bill o'reilly offers his expert opinion on "gangnam style"

Oh, didn't you know? Bill O'Reilly happens to be an expert on popular musics. Why else would the blowhard host of Fox News' O'Reilly Factor go out of his way to decry the success of "Gangnam Style," not only dismissing Psy as "a little fat guy from Yongyang or some place," but also bringing in a so-called psychiatrist to decode and explain the Korean hit's inexplicable success.

I don't have to tell you this, but this is the biggest pile of bullshit I've ever heard. "Gangnam Style" is now the most viewed video of all time. But it's impossible for them to fathom that music originating from the another country, in a different language, could possible be significant. So they decry the success of "Gangnam Style" as mindlessly devoid of meaning.

Did I miss the segment where O'Reilly similarly questioned the success of Justin Bieber's "Baby" -- the music video that Psy dethroned? Because that artist came from another country, and I failed to find a whole lot of meaning in that song. What was the point this segment? Why the hell did I watch this? Why did I even write this post?
