The host laid out bare the facts that the late singer was popping powerful but legal pills while she was still alive and that people around her allowed her to.

While fellow stars chose to commemorate Whitney Houston in the wake of her death, Bill O'Reilly ripped the singer by suggesting that her death was a choice. The conservative pundit said on the Monday, February 13 edition of his show, "Whitney Houston wanted to kill herself."

In the "Reality Check" segment of "The O'Reilly Factor", O'Reilly began by noting his viewers about Houston's achievements before saying, "like so many pop stars, she became addicted to drugs." He also wanted to contradict the fact that Tony Bennett suggested the legalization of drugs, emphasizing that only prescribed drugs were found in her hotel room and arguing that it was merely a self-destructive behavior done by Houston.

"Nobody takes drugs for that long if they want to stay on the planet," O'Reilly said. "She follows in the footsteps of Elvis [Presley], Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, and scores of other entertainment figures. The hard truth is that some people will always want to destroy themselves, and there's nothing society can do about it."

He also slammed the people around her, saying "they had to know that she was a drug addict" yet they gave her legal and powerful drugs, the same thing that happened to MJ. O'Reilly also insisted that drugs are the seed of crime and violence and that he could not believe the government passed laws that allow millions of Americans "legally getting stoned every day."

I saw the interview and he didn't call her a drug addict. What he said WAS that past history would dictate this behavior to that of a drug addict.

By the same reasoning, Bill O'Reilly chose to be a witless attention whore.
