Bill O'Reilly Thinks You're A Stupid Dummy

Fox News' highest rated host says the internet is ruining young people's minds.

Posted on February 18, 2014, at 2:20 p.m. ET

Based on a 2011 survey of 1,000 people, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly declared, "The internet has created a generation of self-absorbed, addicted, distracted, and ignorant people."

The 64-year-old cable news ratings giant wants you and your smartphone to get the hell off his lawn, adding, "The powerful machines, handheld many of them, are diverting a lot of Americans away from real life. You can now create your own world on the net devoid of reality, and millions of Americans are doing that. The result is that a very few shrewd people are now wielding enormous power."

Later on Twitter, NBC's Chuck Todd — probably on his darned smartphone — summed up what we're all thinking:
