Bill O'Reilly in an argument?? SHOCKING!!
And that's where things got ugly!! Their disagreement quickly heated and before U knew it, the two were sparring over the science of addiction.
Matt: Addiction is a disease.
Bill: It's a mental disease. You have free will when it comes to addiction. You don't have free will when it comes to lung cancer.
Matt: Bill, I have seen dozens of stories over the years detailing the addiction.
Bill: They were sensationalized to exploit the woman's condition, not try to help her. You know what we in the media do, Lauer? We wink-wink it. We Snoop Dogg it. We Willie Nelson it. 'Hey, oh yeah, they're stoned, that's fine.
Matt: I think it's apples and oranges that you're comparing. I think on the one hand, the media did detail her troubles. But at the same time I would agree that they celebrated her talent or her stardom. [Are journalists] supposed to be in the position of conducting interventions?
Bill: They're supposed to be in the business of telling the truth.
Matt: You and I could argue for hours.
Bill: Of course, and I'd always be right!
Matt: Well I know you'd always think you were right!
LOL! Oooh, Bill!! Such a character!!
But he brings up some valid points for discussion.
DO we have free will when it comes to addiction?? And why does it seem to be considered a lesser mental disease than something like schizophrenia??
What do U think??
