High School Student Takes On Fiery Newscaster Over Sex Ed Talk

This Week in Education says: "We've all seen full-grown adults crumble and fluster when faced with hard-charging newscasters who disagree with their points of view, but give credit to this Boulder high school sophomore Jesse Lange who takes on none other than the firebreathing Bill O'Reilly over a controversial sex and drug talk given at a Boulder high school."

I agree. This kid gets points for poise and clarity.

Kudos to Jesse for keeping his cool.

O'Reilly was patronizing and rude, but Jesse stood his ground.

Agree or disagree with his opinion, the boy has chutzpah!

I love how he turned O'Reilly's book back on him. Is Jesse a member of Boulder's debate team?
