During the September 5 edition of his nationally syndicated radio show, Bill O'Reilly once again attacked Media Matters for America and MoveOn.org, calling the two organizations "the most vicious element in our society today" and referring to their staff as "assassins." O'Reilly stated: "All right, now let's get into a serious situation. Look, we have two political parties in this country, and that's always served us fairly well. We need a third. We absolutely need a third political party here. But one of the political parties is now basically afraid of its fringe element and that's the Democratic Party. Now, the fringe element is centered around an outfit called Media Matters."
