Tons of Atheists at Fox News

Two fascinating tidbits from this video of David Pakman's interview with American Atheists' David Silverman might come as a surprise:
  1. There are "tons and tons of atheists" behind the scenes at Fox "News."
  2. Bill O'Reilly is a polite and knowledgeable guy off camera who deliberately plays an angry moron on air.

I'm not especially surprised by the second, although I suspect that many conservative Fox "News" viewers would be upset by the realization that what O'Reilly does on air is not very different from what Colbert does. However, I have to admit being somewhat surprised to hear that there are so many atheists working on these shows at Fox. I know I shouldn't be surprised. After all, many in the GLBT community continue to adhere to religions that demonize them.
