Controversial television host Bill O'Reilly has lashed out at Eminem calling the Sarah Palin parody from his new music video "totally obscene."
Along with citing his problems with Em, he also expressed his disappointment with various liberal media outlets for not addressing the Palin spoof.
"Few Americans take the vile rapper Eminem seriously," O'Reilly declared. "He represents the lowest form of entertainment in this country and is a publicity hound to boot. His attack on Sarah Palin, which is very crude, seems to be okay with the media...He's just a, I'm not even gonna do that...It's so crude what he does, kids see it, not adults. Nobody over 25 goes into this stuff...Eminem is obviously on an obscene rant about Sarah Palin, totally obscene, totally inappropriate, nothing good about it. Not a word from Media Matters, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, NBC News, any of the big media, nothing." (The O'Reilly Factor)
Em's video premiered Tuesday (April 7) morning featuring a variety of celebrity cameo spoofs.
Slim Shady promised he was up to his old tricks in the video for "We Made You," his first solo clip since 2005. Debuted exclusively on MTV's "AMTV" this morning and directed by Joseph Kahn, Em does his best preening Bret Michaels, dangling a rose with a backstage pass on it in front of a line of rock star wannabes that includes impersonators of Sarah Palin (Lisa Ann), Samantha Ronson, Lindsay Lohan and a dentally challenged Amy Winehouse. Dr. Dre and 50 Cent make cameos in a casino scene alongside Em. (MTV)
O'Reilly and comedian Dennis Miller previously made a rant over Jay-Z and Young Jeezy for their pro-Barack Obama performance of "My President Is Black" on Inauguration Night 2008.
""I don't give a flying bleep what these two guys think," Miller said. "I thought it was a beautiful day yesterday. If they couldn't ratchet down the hate for a day, then that's their problem not mine. And by the way, you're looking at an obsolete model there because if the dinosaurs were done in by the asteroids, role models in the black community like that are about to be done in by a shooting star named Barack Obama."

O'Reilly originally played a segment of what the duo said at a local nightclub which stirred media attention.
"I wanna thank two people," Jeezy told the crowd. "I wanna thank the motherf*ckers overseas that threw two shoes at George Bush. And I want to thank -- the motherf*ckers who helped them move their sh*t up out of the White House. Keep it moving b*tch because my president is motherf*cking black." (Please Don't Stare)
