Bill O'Reilly

Hollywood star Jessica Alba is blasting right-wing Fox TV news host Bill O'Reilly after he suggested Jessica didn't know her history on his high rated News program. The actress took to her blog to defend herself after O'Reilly called her "misguided" for poking fun at a journalist during an inauguration event last week. Jessica asked the reporter what he liked most about President Obama, and when he refused to answer, she joked, "That's it, be neutral. Be Sweden about it." O'Reilly and TMZ both subsequently ridiculed Alba, insisting she meant Switzerland, not Sweden, but the actress has had the last laugh in cyberspace. On her blog, she writes, "I find it depressing that, in the midst of perhaps the most salient time in our country's history, individuals are taking it upon themselves to encourage negativity and stupidity. "Last week, Mr. Bill O'Reilly and some really classy sites insinuated I was dumb by claiming Sweden was a neutral country. I appreciate the fact that he (O'Reilly) is a news anchor and that gossip sites are inundated with intelligent reporting, but seriously people ... it's so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland. "I appreciate the name calling and the accurate reporting. Keep it up!" has since apologized for criticizing the actress, stating, "She is absolutely correct. Sweden was a neutral country ... 60 years ago. We apologize for not considering the political climate of the world in 1942 when we suggested she may have meant, 'Be Switzerland' -- a country that is currently neutral."
