Conservative Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly noted on Thursday that Rep. Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin have snubbed the media over the last week — in particular his show. Bachmann, who in recent months has made multiple national cable appearances, has done none this week, according to her YouTube channel and a search of cable news websites. Bachmann went from six major media appearances to zero in the course of a week — the week following shootings in Tucson that some have said may have had something to do with violent rhetoric by the pair.

O’Reilly said Bachmann and Palin should’ve come on his show because he defended them in the wake of last Saturday’s assassination attempt on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

“Monday night, I launched a devastating attack on the people who did this to Congresswoman Bachmann and Governor Palin,” O’Reilly said. “It wasn’t a personal attack. There were no personal deals at all. It was just the facts: bing, bing, bing, bing, bing. I would assume that both ladies would say, ‘O’Reilly has it nailed. I’m going to say how it affected me personally, thereby not only engendering sympathy… but a lot of hearts and minds have been changed this week. A lot of liberal people are saying, ‘You know what, it’s gone too far.’ And that’s why I think they should’ve come on.”

Here’s O’Reilly commenting on Bachmann and Palin’s lack of media presence this week:

In the week before the Tucson shooting, Bachmann did at least six major media appearances: Sean Hannity, the Today Show, Fox News’ On the Record, ABC’s Top Line, CNSNews, and WCCO’s Sunday Morning.
