O'Reilly gets by murder talk, but not 14 yr old teen?

It's a big story but I am sure not all of you have heard about the 14 year old girl in Sacremento who was questioned by the Secret Service for writing the phrase"Kill Bush" on her MySpace profile. But she later replaced her page on the social-networking site after learning in her eighth-grade history class that such threats are a federal offense.

Bill O'Reilly has talked of murdering George Soros. However, this is apparently not taken seriously by the Federal or Local Governments because George Soros is not that significant to them.

O'Reilly has declared, among other things, that "[t]hey ought to hang this Soros guy." Most recently, O'Reilly compared Soros to Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini and alleged that Soros believes that "we're Nazis" because of U.S. policies on Iraq and torture.

The Secret Service (the SS, haha) or law enforcement does not interfere. Then O'Reilly straight up denies "go[ing] after" Soros.

I think this is completely ridiculous that the Bush Administration is trying to scare and intimidate people by going after a 14-year-old on MySpace, it's obviously an SS PR stunt. They got a great chance to show that they are "serious" and they took it. Well that's great SS, but shouldn't we take murderous threats against anyone seriously then?
