Another Victory For Bill O'Reilly

After blasting Snoop Dogg, Jim Henson Productions

and NBC on his "O'Reilly Factor" television show, Bill O'Reilly has

dealt another blow to a rapper in less than two months.

Jim Henson Productions recently announced that

"A Very Merry Muppet Christmas" will cut approximately a half an hour

of footage from the made-for TV special, including a cameo by Snoop Dogg.

In a statement, Jim Henson Productions claimed

that the cuts were for production reasons and not because of the heat that ensued

as a result of O'Reilly's comments or because of Snoop's sordid past.
