O'REILLY: That was on the campus, though. That wasn't a court of law.

O'REILLY: But they haven't so far, have they?

WETMORE: No, they haven't.

WETMORE: Yes. I was a hall president.

WETMORE: I would hope not. I can't think that she would.

O'REILLY: And why did you want to tape this?

WETMORE: (UNINTELLIGIBLE).

O'REILLY: And why did they want to do that?

O'REILLY: Why are they irritated by the Web site?

O'REILLY: Were you going to mock Mrs. Gore on your Web site?

WETMORE: Yep.

O'REILLY: All right. Good luck, Ben.
