Bill O'Reilly, Beck's colleague at Fox News, didn't sit back in shock. Instead he grilled Beck--his partner on the "Bold and Fresh Tour"--about his stance on Mirandizing Shahzad. "All right, Beck, you are in big trouble now," began O'Reilly, before engaging Beck in a heated discussion:
O'REILLY: The — this is where, you believe that these terrorists should be read their Miranda rights right away. I think you're wrong, but I understand where you're coming from.
BECK: No, no, no. Citizens, Bill. Citizens.
O'REILLY: Terrorists, some terrorists are citizens.
BECK: Yes, and here is what you have. Remember, we're running this like a police operation. So, if the police bust you, when does that citizen become guilty? I thought we had to prove that.
O'REILLY: No, but here's the deal. They want to pass a law that says if there's an imminent threat of a terror act...
BECK: Look, I am all for Jack Bauer.
O'REILLY: ...that's suspended.
BECK: Nipple clamps go on if we're 24 hours away and we think a bomb is going to go off.
O'REILLY: Let's pass a law that says if the authorities feel there's a terror act underway...
BECK: No way. No.
O'REILLY: ...Miranda rights can be suspended.
BECK: No more power.
