Carol Alt, Cheese and O'Reilly - the video
We finally got our hands on the Carol Alt / O'Reilly Factor video that we covered back in February 2005. Since this clip is sooooooo entertaining and we have sooooooo many new readers, we're just going to go ahead and re-publish our original post, (but now you can play the lovely video on our site).
Carol Alt, Cheese and O'Reilly (Feb 2005)
For those of you that missed it, Carol Alt, supermodel and rawfood eater (like 70% raw), graced television screens across America on Jan. 12th, 2005. Carol appeared on a little show called The O'Reilly Factor.
Carol was clearly working hard to avoid coming across as a treehugger, (she talked more about eating meat, dairy, and fish than fruits and vegetables). She did, though, try to educate Bill about the possibilities of the rawfood diet. However it is pretty clear to see Bill O'Reilly was a tad bit confused.
Here is one of our favorite quotes from the segment:
O'REILLY:When I think of raw food, I think of celery. Now do you eat celery like you're a little rabbit or something?
ALT: No, I don't eat celery. I don't eat celery. I eat raw milk, cheeses.
Okay we couldn't resist, one more:
O'REILLY: In the morning when you get up, what do you eat?
ALT: I'll have cheese. I'll have...
ALT: Yes, I'll have cheese.
O'REILLY: Like a little mouse. Cheese.
Yes Bill, cheese for mice and celery for a rabbits. Get with the raw program. Full transcript and video.
