    ...that make his opinion on such subject relevant? Even if he believed in climate change, it wouldn't make a difference for me for the guy is nothing but a tv commentator for crying out loud!

      most often.  It has to do with many things that shape you and if you put your faith into people who willingly mislead you - the fault is not only on you for trusting someone you ought not (and most of us have done that, and been betrayed) but mostly on the person to willfully abuse that trust.

        Whenever I hear something, even from a trusted source, I still wait to get confirmation from other sources not plugged at the same well.

        And I also look for other opinions from other trusted sources, for no one is always entirely right or entirely wrong.

        To watch O'Reilley (or Meher, Hannity, Maddow, etc.) and treat him as a know it all guru without EVER questioning what he says and taking everything literally is a CHOICE.
