Dear Mr. O'Reilly,

Attached please find a copy of a Media Matters for America's report on last night's "O'Reilly Factor" segment with Richard Poe, in which you addressed allegations Poe made in his Newsmax Magazine article headlined, "George Soros' Coup," with no guest representing a different point of view.

In line with the "fair and balanced" standard announced by the Fox News Channel, and in light of your commitment made on the broadcast last night to "stay on" Soros so that "people will know about this guy before the election," I would appreciate your prompt consideration of my request to appear on the "O'Reilly Factor" at a mutually convenient time in the very near future to discuss your Soros segment featuring Mr. Poe and his work.

I look forward to hearing from you or your representative about this pressing matter. My office telephone is [...] and I may be faxed at [...].

Sincerely,

David Brock
President and CEO
Media Matters for America
