On The O'Reilly Factor, Dennis Miller ridiculed Thomas Beatie, a transgender man who recently gave birth to a child, calling him a "nympho satyr" and saying: "[A]ll I know is the guy's more pregnant than the old woman in the shoe is. And somebody has got to get some protection for this guy, be it a condom or an IUD or a satellite dish or a catcher's mitt. I don't even know what he needs down there, but I need an equipment check on aisle five." Referring to the baby, Miller had video of the polar bear cub at the Berlin zoo aired.

On the December 17 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, radio host Dennis Miller said of transgender man Thomas Beatie, "I don't know what to make of this nympho satyr." He continued: "[A]ll I know is the guy's more pregnant than the old woman in the shoe is. And somebody has got to get some protection for this guy, be it a condom or an IUD or a satellite dish or a catcher's mitt. I don't even know what he needs down there, but I need an equipment check on aisle five." O'Reilly responded, "This is one of those things I don't even like to think about, you know."

In addition, Miller asked O'Reilly, "Billy, did you ever see a picture of his first kid?" Then, the program aired a clip of Knut, a polar bear living at the Zoologischer Garten Berlin, and said: "I asked them to get some footage of his first child. It's Knut, the little bear. I don't know how that happened, but how does a guy get pregnant?" O'Reilly responded, "What, did you do a DNA test on him, Miller? Did you do a DNA test on Knut? Are you positive it's the pregnant man's first child?" Miller answered: "Yes, I did. This kid owes Knut some mackerel on a monthly basis. He is the father."

As Media Matters for America noted, on the April 3 edition of The O'Reilly Factor, O'Reilly said of Beatie, "You imagine a poor kid getting born into that family going, 'Hey... whoa. Who are you today?' " Fox News contributor Bernard Goldberg responded: "That's the real tragedy."

From the December 17 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor:

O'REILLY: All right. Number eight, the pregnant man. Roll the tape.

MILLER: I don't even --

BEATIE [video clip]: I did not feel maternal or motherly or womanly pregnant. I felt like Nancy's husband and I felt like the father of my child. I passed by the mirror one day, and out of the corner of my eye, I saw a pregnant man. And I was like, "Oh, my God, I'm pregnant."

O'REILLY: I just -- the visual puts him on the list, does it not?

MILLER: Well, if it puts him on, it puts me on, too. Listen, I don't know what to make of this nympho satyr. The -- all I know is the guy's more pregnant than the old woman in the shoe is. And somebody has got to get some protection for this guy, be it a condom or an IUD or a satellite dish or a catcher's mitt. I don't even know what he needs down there, but I need an equipment check on aisle five.

O'REILLY: Yeah, this is one of those things I don't even like to think about, you know.

MILLER: Billy, did you ever see a picture of his first kid?

O'REILLY: No.

MILLER: Unbelievable. Look who it is.

O'REILLY: Who?

MILLER: Well, they'll show you in a second. I asked them to get some footage of his first child. It's Knut, the little bear. I don't know how that happened, but how does a guy get pregnant?

O'REILLY: What, did you do a DNA test on him, Miller? Did you do a DNA test on Knut? Are you positive it's the pregnant man's first child?

MILLER: Yes, I did. This kid owes Knut some mackerel on a monthly basis. He is the father.

O'REILLY: What a country.
