Bill O’Reilly Thinks Columbia Is Overpriced

As part of a regular segment on The O’Reilly Factor , Watters’ World, where Producer Jesse Watters asks young people leading questions designed to elicit stupid responses, Watters recently traveled to Columbia University.

Watters asked students if there was a Muslim problem in the world. While he doesn’t appear to have interviewed any actual Muslims, he did get a lot of rather interesting responses.

“So Columbia University tuition, about $60,000 a year,” O’Reilly says sardonically.

Annual tuition at Columbia is actually more like $40,000, but whatever. That’s why students have to sell drugs, remember?
