Bill O'Reilly

I like Bill Maher and Jon Stewart but Bill O’Reilly is a horse of a different feather. Is he still actually employed? How can someone be employed in a public facing role when he is what we over here in the 51st state call ‘thick as pig shit’? His use of the term ‘fascism’ on this You Tube clip is a broadcasting blunder that should have instantly got him dismissed.

Lots of things O’Reilly has said and done would have gotten him dismissed if he were a liberal.

O’Reilly gets high ratings on a network that gets high ratings by spreading false right wing narratives that they assure us are fair and balanced. They exploit the gullible masses, and the Constitutional protection of free speech, and make lots of money in the process. Fox News will not can him as long as he gets good ratings.

“There’s only one song that the tv sings,
That’s ‘Pennies From Heaven’ while the register rings,
So it’s easy to see right from the start,
That what makes good money makes good art”

You're not the 51st state. You'll have to get behind Puerto Rico.

I just wish Dawkins had the presense of mind to ask if Oreilly would be ok with presenting ALL of the alternatives. Wiccan, Muslim, Hindu, Native American, and on and on and on. My guess is OR would somehow dismiss anything other than Judeo-Christian ideas as not legitimate. Typical. What fascinates me more though, is that you just know Oreilly doesn’t even believe what he’s saying. He’s not that dumb or naive. But he says it anyways.

Although Bill O’Reilly’s bigotry is a serious issue the more substantial problem is that he has so little intellect. He could not tell you the direction in which the elevator was travelling if you gave him three guesses.

Or if he were working for a responsible station. But we know very well he isn't.

You're not the 51st state. You'll have to get behind Puerto Rico. Nobody knows what the 51st state will be or if there will ever be one. Nothing becomes a state according to when it was first suggested. Do you suppose Congress takes numbers as in a bakery?

He's that underhanded, though.

He’s a propagandist not a journalist, Joseph Goebbels would be proud of Bill O’Reilly. He’s also a complete hypocrite and liar.

Does he ever appear on other shows where he is not controlling the interview, thus not being able to direct the precise area of the subject being discussed, not able to move onto another issue when he is defeated, not able to interrupt / shout down his opponent and not able to terminate the interview when he is well beaten?

Ha, Christopher Hitchens being interviewed by Bill O’Reilly, upon hearing the programme’s end music gradually being faded up “We’ve only just got our trousers off”. :lol:
