Ann Coulter appeared on the “O’Reilly Factor” to advance an argument that she made in a column this week: that radiation is “good for you.” Bill O’Reilly said that even if there was scientific discussion going on about the effects of radiation, it was the media’s job to be “responsible” and “err on the side of caution” about radiation. “You have to report the worst-case scenario,” he said, adding that there is a clear scientific consensus that “some radiation will kill you.”
Coulter said she disagreed, and said that the scientific consensus has changed, but that the media are not reporting it. “So by your account we should all be heading towards the nuclear reactor,” O’Reilly said.
