The Friday 7-31-09 O'Reilly/Ingraham Factor Review
By: Steve - August 1, 2009 - 12:00pm
The far right partisan nut job Laura Ingraham filled in for Billy, which pretty much kills his argument that he is a non-partisan Independent, because only another far right partisan nut job would have Laura Ingraham as a fill in host when he is not there. The crazy Ingraham did a TPM called Citizen Revolt. In this insane right-wing propaganda filled TPM she claimed that there is a citizen revolt against Obama, and that the people are opposed to everything he is doing. She even said everything Obama has done is a failure. This is just pure right-wing propaganda, and ridiculous.
Obama has a 54% job approval, that means the majority of people approve of what he is doing, which is hardly a citizen revolt. The cash for clunkers program is a huge success, so much that they just added another $2 Billion dollars to the program. The Obama stimulus plan is starting to work, because the economy only shrank by 1 percent in the 2nd quarter of this year, compared to 4 percent in the first quarter. The stock market is up over 3000 points since Obama took office, and the Dow had the best July in 26 years. A measure Republicans like Ingraham and O'Reilly used to link to Obama when the Dow was dropping, now that it's up they ignore it.
This is all good news for the country and Obama, yet Ingraham ignored it all to claim there is a citizen revolt against him. When the only thing the majority of the people are not sure about is the Obama health care plan. And the reason some of them oppose it, is because of all the propaganda put out about it from the Insurance companies and the Republicans is working. This is like last Monday when O'Reilly had a TPM that said Obama is a bad and weak leader, when just 2 days before that Gallup released a poll titled Obama is a strong and decisive leader. In the poll 67% of the people said Obama is a strong and decisive leader.
O'Reilly and Ingraham and biased partisan Republican spin doctors, so they both do lie filled TPM's to smear Obama and try to make him look bad. Proving they are biased liars, because their spin does not match reality. If 67% of the people think you are a strong and decisive leader, how can you be a bad and weak leader. If you have a 54% job approval, how can there be a citizen revolt. It's insanity, from O'Reilly and Ingraham, and nothing more than right-wing propaganda.
Then Ingraham had Ann Coulter on to discuss it, and racial profiling. And my God was it insanity, Coulter talked about racial profiling and said it was all bull, that there is no racial profiling, and the Democrats can not show her one case where anyone was racially profiled. Wow she is Glenn Beck crazy, in Coulter world no black person has ever been racially profiled. She claims they just make it all up to race bait white people, and sue them for money. This is beyond ridiculous, and anyone who puts her on tv is as insane as she is. There are thousands of cases of racial profiling every day. To deny it, is to deny reality.
Then crazy Ingraham reported on the beerfest at the White House. When Thursday night she complained to O'Reilly for reporting it, she told O'Reilly the story was ridiculous, that she hated it, and that she did not want to talk about it. She even made fun of the news networks that had a countdown clock to beerfest on the screen. Then the very next night she does another segment on it with the crazy far right nut Ann Coulter, now that's some massive hypocrisy. Not to mention nobody cares what you 2 right-wing stooges say about it anyway. They both hate Obama and everything he does, so how can they do an objective analysis of anything, they cant, so it's just biased garbage.
Then crazy Ingraham had 2 guests on, an unknown Democratic strategist, and Byron York. Ingraham spewed out some nonsense claiming the Democratic party is coming apart at the seams, yes she actually said that. And Ingraham also said the Democrats are smearing the honest hard working Americans who work at the Insurance companies that sell you health Insurance. Because Pelosi dared to tell the truth about those Insurance companies, that they are ripping you off to make massive profits. So somehow in Ingraham world that means the Democratic party is coming apart at the seams, which is just insanity. And this is the kind of nut job O'Reilly picks to be his fill in host, think about what that says about O'Reilly.
Then Ingraham did an actual segment on the new economic numbers that are good news for the country, and for Obama. Ingraham put 2 right-wing spin doctors on from FOX, with no Democrat guests. She had Cheryl Casone and Degen McDowell on to discuss it. And my God was it a right-wing all spin zone of a segment. They said it was all made up, that the numbers are not as good as they claim, and that Obama was spinning it. When Obama did not spin anything, all he said was that the stimulus has helped to ease the recession, which it has, and the numbers prove it. The only spin on it was coming from Ingraham and her right-wing guests, who do not want to give Obama credit for anything because they hate him.
Speaking at the White House, President Obama hailed the improving GDP numbers as evidence that his administration's policies are beginning to "put the brakes on the recession."Okay Ingraham, how is that spinning anything, dumbass. These 3 right-wing idiots acted like Obama was lying, and that the sky was falling. When the economy is getting better, and the stock market had the best July in 26 years. All of which signal that we are on the way to economic recovery. Some experts even believe the recession is over, and that in the 3rd of 4th quarter we might even see positive growth of 1 to 3 percent. And this is aftert the worst recession in 80 years, the recession Bush and the Republicans caused btw, which they never mention. Watching Ingraham and her 2 insane right-wing friends from FOX spin the economic numbers, was like watching the Twilight Zone tv show, it was fantasyland, and nothing they said was true.
Obama also warned that although the recession is easing, it might be many months before employment picks up. The nation's unemployment rate is 9.5 percent, and many analysts expect it will top out above 10 percent. In his statement, Obama acknowledged that the nation will not feel like it is in recovery "until we stop losing jobs."
Then she did some garbage segment crying about something Dan Rather said about the media, basically she trashed Dan Rather, and lied about what he said, just as she did with everything else in the rest of the show. The whole segment was just ridiculous, not worth reporting, and a waste of tv time. Billy's right-wing viewers love it when he trashes people like Dan Rather, because it gets ratings, even when it's spin or a flat out lie, they love it, and believe it anyway. Then she played a re-run of an interview with O'Reilly and Glenn Beck from July 21st. The crazy interview where Beck pulled the roll of cookie dough out of his suit pocket, why, who knows, the man is crazy, who knows why he does anything.
Then Ingraham did a segment about a pro-life nurse and how she was forced to help with a late term abortion, against her will. She had her attorney on, and a Democrat Juila Piscitelli. Ingraham and her attorney used all the time to spin the story, when Ingraham asked Julia a question she was cut off and not allowed to answer it. In the whole segment Julia was allowed to speak for about 20 seconds, if that. Ingraham and the attorney used all the time, and would not let Julia get 5 words out before one or both of them cut her off and talked over her. It was total one sided bias, and worse than what O'Reilly does.
Then Ingraham did some nonsense about the cast of Seinfeld having a reunion on a current tv show. Okay great, but how is this news, and why is Ingraham using time on a national tv news show to report this hollywood garbage. This is news for Entertainment Tonight, or Geraldo, not for a so-called hard news show. And that was the end of the show, hosted by a far right partisan nasal nose voiced idiot, who spent the entire show spewing out right-wing propaganda. As I call it, a typical night on the O'Reilly/Ingraham Factor.
The Thursday 7-30-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 31, 2009 - 10:30am
The TPM was called Is The USA a Dumb Country. Billy talked about Bill Maher saying to Larry King that people in the USA are stupid, and of course O'Reilly took his comment out of context and turned it into Bill Maher thinks everyone in the USA is stupid. Then Billy used that to imply that everyone on the left thinks ALL people in the USA are stupid.
O'Reilly was dishonest about this on three points:
1) Bill Maher did not call every person in the USA stupid, he only called the people who would vote for Palin to be the president stupid, not everyone as O'Reilly claimed.Bill Maher said Palin is stupid, as in dumb as a rock, which is 100% true, she is a moron, and should never be in Congress, or any other elected office, so Maher was right about that. Then he said that fact that one person would vote for her shows that people are stupid. But he was not saying everyone in the USA is stupid. Which is what O'Reilly implied with his ridiculous TPM, and he did not put the Maher comments into context, he played a 5 second video clip of what Maher said, and did not put it into context. And that is some big time dishonest journalism, from the so-called journalist Bill O'Reilly.
2) O'Reilly took his comments out of context and then misrepresented what he said to use it to smear Bill Maher as a far left nut who thinks everyone in the USA is stupid. Which is the exact thing O'Reilly complains about when people do it to him. O'Reilly says it is wrong to take partial quotes from people and use them out of context to misrepresent what they said, and he calls it a violation of journalistic standards, then he does the very same thing.
3) O'Reilly used the out of context partial quote from Maher for partisan political reasons, by implying that everyone on the left thinks the people in the USA are stupid. Based on the comment of one man, O'Reilly smeared everyone on the left because of what Bill Maher said. Which is another thing O'Reilly complains about when liberals do it to people on the right, then he does the very same thing he complains about. All of it is massive hypocrisy.
Then O'Reilly had Dr. Marc Lamont Hill and Naomi Wolf on to discuss it. The two of them put the Maher comment into context and said they agree with him, and that Palin is (as they said) not very smart, I say stupid, and so does Maher. Then of course O'Reilly defended Palin, because he is a Republican and he loves her. Billy said Palin is not a stupid moron, and that the left says she is because they do not like her. Which is just ridiculous, and proves that O'Reilly is a partisan Republican.
Earth to O'Reilly, Palin is an idiot, she said because you can see Russia from Alaska it gave her foreign policy experience. Hello, that's insane, and that one statement alone makes her a fricking braindead moron. And only biased Republicans deny that to defend her, she is stupid, and that is a fact. The only people who dont think so are the people who love her. I could fill a book with stupid comments she made, that makes her stupid. Did you forget the disaster of an interview she did with Katie Couric, and how Tina Fey mocked her and used her comments word for word in a comedy skit. Palin is an idiot who rambles on with nonsense that sounds like a retarded 10 year old.
Then Billy had the far right nut job Laura Ingraham on to discuss the Obama meeting with the cop and the Professor on the race arrest. They called it beerfest, and the first thing O'Reilly said was that he hates this story and does not even want to report it, then dont moron. Then Ingraham said she hates it and she does not want to talk about it. Then what did they do, of course they spent the entire segment talking about it. So they both hated it, and they both said it was a non-story, then the morons wasted an entire 4 minute segment talking about it anyway. Ingraham said it was a ridiculous story, and she was upset that the media spent so much time talking about it, and even made fun of some cable news channels having a countdown clock to the beerfest.
Then they reported it too, what a couple of giant hypocrites. And neither one of them has yet to mention how Judge Napolitano said it was an unlawful arrest, they have ignored that and never said a word about it. At one point Ingraham asked where Biden was, and Billy said he was off somewhere smoking pot, huh? He thought that was funny, I guess he thinks he's Dennis Miller now. The whole segment was one big biased right-wing joke, full of hypocrisy, and a total waste of time, especially when they both said they hated the story and did not even want to report it, then they reported it.
Okay now get this, after all that you think O'Reilly was done. Wrong, he did another segment on it with Geraldo. Which is even more ridiculous, after saying he hated it he does 2 segments in a row on the story. Geraldo said it was a valid story, and that the cop was out of line. And of course Billy cut him off and defended the cop. While never saying one word about the Napolitano statement, so he is ignoring the facts, that it was an unlawful arrest. Billy dont care about facts, he just defends the white guy and goes against the black guy, because he is a racist.
O'Reilly even cried about people calling him a racist, hey Billy, if the shoe fits, wear it jackass. O'Reilly said if you are on the right and you say one negative thing about a black man you are labeled a racist, that it's unfair, and wrong. Haha, what a load of bull, if you say racist things, as O'Reilly does all the time, then you are a racist, and people call you a racist because you are one, dumbass. When you call Mexicans wetbacks, you make jokes about black kids stealing your hubcaps, and you are shocked that blacks in a black owned restaurant are not screaming where is my f-ing ice tea, you are a racist, what part of that do you not understand, all those are racist statements, which make you a racist.
Then Billy had the stupid Body Language segment with the blonde bimbo, and this crap is garbage so I do not report any of it. I can say it is biased, to the right, because pretty much every time she reads a Democrat it's negative, and every time she reads a Republican it's positive. And for the Republican idiots who read this, and feel the need to write me and say you are wrong, and you are the spin doctor. She does not do that every time, ok, she only does it 98% of the time, you happy now.
The Megyn Kelly was on to complain about a transgender Mayor who wore a sexy dress when he/she spoke to a group of 15 and 16 year old kids. Even though he/she is the actual Mayor, elected by the people, and invited to speak to them. Her problem was what the Mayor decided to wear. Okay I agree it was probably not a good idea to wear a sexy dress to speak to them, and the Mayor even agreed it was probably a bad decision, but it's not like he/she went naked, or did something really bad. This is a local news story for the local hack news team to cover, this is not a national story, and why are you so mad, get a life and report some real news, this is tabloid garbage to get ratings.
Then they talked some more about the Erin Andrews story, because she called the cops to get rid of the paparazzi. Billy was upset that they are bothering her, then asked Kelly if there is something they can do about it. Which is so funny, because O'Reilly does the very same thing, when he sends his stalker producer out to do those ambush interviews with people that do not want to talk to him. It's the same as what the paparazzi do, and as long as you do it on public property it's legal. It's massive hypocrisy from O'Reilly again, he calls for privacy for Erin Andrews, then he invades the privacy of all the people he does the ambush interviews on.
What a giant hypocrite, and if they pass new privacy laws to stop it, most likely it would be shot down as a violation of the constitution. It's called the right to a free press Billy, which is how you get away with those ambush interviews. Go read the 1st amendment dumbass, it says there is a right to a free press. And as long as they do not go on private property it's all legal. Just because some blonde bimbo that you love is involved you can not stop it. Especially when you do the same damn thing yourself, you king of hypocrisy.
Then the bogus reality check segment, the stupid pinheads and patriots, and the highly edited lame Factor e-mails. And another worthless almost no news O'Reilly Factor was over.
The Hypocrisy & Double Standards from Bill O'Reilly
By: Steve - July 30, 2009 - 3:30pm
A few days ago on FOX & Friends Glenn Beck called president Obama a racist, he also said the president has a deep seated hatred of white people, than about 60 seconds later he said he is not saying Obama hates white people, when he just said Obama has a deep hatred of white people. The man is insane, and cant even remember what he said a minute before.
BECK: This president has exposed himself, I think, as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or white culture. Challenged by Brian Kilmeade, Beck then claimed that he wasn't saying Obama doesn't like white people.Now in the past O'Reilly has said that when someone says something bad you should speak out against it or you support it. When Rosie was talking the 9-11 conspiracy stuff on the View tv show O'Reilly called for ABC to take her off the air, and said that any Democrat who does not speak out against her is supporting what she says.
KILMEADE: But listen, you can't say he doesn’t like white people. David Axelrod's white, Rahm Emanuel's his chief of staff, this, I think 70 percent of the people we see everyday are white. Robert Gibbs is white.
BECK: I'm not saying that he doesn't like white people. I'm saying he has a problem. He has a, this guy is, I believe, a racist. Look the way, look at the things he has been surrounded by.
So here you have Glenn Beck saying that garbage, and O'Reilly says nothing. Even when FOX News put out a statement saying they do not agree with Beck, and that it's his personal opinion, yet O'Reilly is silent as a mouse, when Beck is a regular on his show. Which means O'Reilly's silence shows that he supports what Beck is saying, according to his own logic.
Then you have last night's Goldberg/O'Reilly Obama Birther garbage, that it's all an evil plot by Obama to make conservatives look more insane. Bernie Goldberg has a theory about why there's been such a controversy over Lou Dobbs promotion of the "Birther" conspiracy theory. It's all an evil plot by the Obama White House to string the story along indefinitely so as to make the right-wingers look like even crazier.
Goldberg: Well, let's get the easy part out of the way first. CNN should not, repeat, not fire Lou Dobbs for talking about this. Lou Dobbs didn't say Barack Obama wasn't born in the United States, he said just the opposite! He said he was born in the United States. But then he said he should produce his birth certificate.What a load of garbage, and they both ignored one simple fact: Obama already released his birth certificate in June 2008.
Now let's think about this for a second. Why wouldn't President Obama release his birth certificate? He was born in Hawaii, Hawaii last I checked is in the United States, and -- why in the world wouldn't he release his birth certificate?
O'Reilly: Can I answer that question?
Goldberg: Well, let me answer it first. OK? Let me just answer my own question first.
O'Reilly: OK, you answer it, and then I'll have the correct answer.
Goldberg: I have a theory. And the theory is this: That the Chicago Mafia inside the White House want to keep this crazy controversy going. Because the longer it goes, the better the chance that they will conflate the crazy right-wing fringe with regular conservatives and regular Republicans.
O'Reilly: That's not a bad theory. But from dealing with the Obama White House, now, for almost, more than a year, I will tell you they are, uh, as every White House I've ever experienced, they're arrogant, they're arrogant. And they're saying to themselves, 'We're not gonna let Lou Dobbs tell us what to do.
We're not gonna let these cranks on talk radio tell us what to do. They want the birth certificate released? Tough. We're not going to do it, because we have the power, and we don't like that.' That's what it's all about -- it's a 'Ha ha, we're not gonna do what you say.'
As FactCheck.org explained, on the certificate issue, it was the "short form" of Obama's birth certificate, not its long form, which is filled out by the hospital and kept in its records. So why doesn't Obama release the long form? Because Hawaiian law does not give him that option:
The document is a "certification of birth," also known as a short-form birth certificate. The long form is drawn up by the hospital and includes additional information such as birth weight and parents' hometowns. The short form is printed by the state and draws from a database with fewer details.Hey Billy, I though you only deal in the facts, if that's true, why are you ignoring all these facts to help crazy Goldberg promote this false conspiracy theory nonsense. It's insane to even be asking why Obama won't release his birth certificate when he has already done so.
The Hawaii Department of Health's birth record request form does not give the option to request a photocopy of your long-form birth certificate, but their short form has enough information to be acceptable to the State Department.
The Wednesday 7-29-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 30, 2009 - 10:30am
The TPM was called Is America Unfair? And what a stupid and biased TPM it was, O'Reilly asked if it's a rigged game or is it fair for all Americans. Then he trashed Obama for being a liberal, and said most people oppose him. And btw, O'Reilly once again used the biased Rasmussen poll numbers to do it. Gallup has Obama at 53% approval as I type this, so while Obama did drop 3 points in the last week, most people still approve of the job he is doing. Then O'Reilly trashed the Obama town hall meeting, made fun of it, and once again falsely claimed that if his health care plan passes it could bankrupt the country.
Which can never happen, because Obama said he will never sign a bill that is not budget neutral. Yet O'Reilly keeps spinning out this right-wing garbage that if it passes it could bankrupt the country. Not to mention the U.S. Government will never go bankrupt, and O'Reilly knows it. If the Government needs money, all they have to do is raise taxes, so it's impossible for the Government to go bankrupt. As usual O'Reilly just used his TPM to trash and smear Obama to make him look bad. Based on a rigged poll from Rasmussen, and before Obama has even been president for a year. O'Reilly is breaking his own promise, almost every night. He said he would give Obama a year before he attacked him, but it's only been 6 months and O'Reilly is attacking him every night.
Then O'Reilly had the biased right-wing partisan Dick Morris on. And of course Morris agreed with everything O'Reilly spewed out, that's why he is put on, and why all these Republican guests are put on. They are on to agree with Billy and make it look like he is telling you the truth, when it's all right-wing spin, with a Republican guest on to back O'Reilly up, and why you rarely see a Democrat guest. During an average O'Reilly Factor 6 to 8 Republicans are put on, while 1 to 1.5 Democrats are on. And most nights it's 7 to 1, Republican to Democrat, sometimes 7 to 0, while the most Democrats ever on is 2, and that's rare.
So as you can see O'Reilly stacks the deck with Republicans, who go on and agree with his right-wing spin, and it makes him look like a truth teller. And Morris did exactly that, he trashed Obama and everything he has done. It was like watching a robot spew out the GOP talking points, Morris even said that nothing Obama says makes sense. Let me get this straight, Barack Obama is the president of the United States, elected by the vast majority of the people, and yet Morris says nothing he says makes any sense. Hey Billy, what happened to give him a year, and respect for the president. Imagine what O'Reilly would say if a Democrat had said that about Bush, Billy would rip him to pieces, but when Morris says it about Obama, he says nothing, because he agrees with him.
And btw, during the segment O'Reilly claimed that his show is now very powerful, more powerful than Katie Couric, because he has 5.5 million viewers, and he beats her in the ratings. Okay, let's come back to reality Billy. I checked the Factor ratings for Tuesday 7-28-09, that's 2 days ago. O'Reilly had 3,288,000 total viewers, Katie Couric averaged 5,460,000 total viewers a night last week. Earth to O'Reilly, 3,288,000 is not 5.5 million, so you did not beat Katie Couric, not then, not ever.
Even if you add the Factor re-run at 11pm (1,482,000) to the ratings, which nobody does but you, and Couric does not have a re-run so it's an unfair comparison to begin with, O'Reilly still only has 4,770,000, and that is also not 5.5 million as O'Reilly claimed. Earth to O'Reilly part 2, if Katie Couric has 5,460,000 viewers for "one" half hour news show, and you have 4,770,000 for "two" one hour news shows, you still did not beat her, what part of that is too hard for you to understand, and why are you lying about it.
Then O'Reilly pulled some more biased garbage, he had Bernie Goldberg on and Billy cited an MRC media study. The study said that 70% of the media coverage has been favorable to Obama on his health care plan, which is just ridiculous. MRC is the Media research Center, run by the far right biased idiot Brent Bozell. It's a biased and partisan media watchdog group, that only finds liberal bias in the media, while ignoring all the conservative bias. This Brent Bozell has even said that FOX News has no bias, none, and that they are they only media outlet on tv with no bias. And if you believe that I have some land to sell you.
FOX has O'Reilly, Hannity, and Beck, all biased Republicans, yet Bozell says they have no bias. The study they did is a joke, and it does not even count the ads on radio or tv put out by partisan special interest groups. It's a biased and flawed study done by a biased and partisan media group. So of course O'Reilly cited it, even when he knows it's garbage. And of course the biased and partisan right-wing idiot (Bernie Goldberg) played along and agreed with everything O'Reilly said. With no Democrat to unspin their lies, so as usual it was just one sided right-wing propaganda. They also talked about the Professor Gates story, but never once mentioned that Judge Napolitano from FOX said it was an unlawful arrest.
Goldberg was even held over for a 2nd segment to talk about the Lou Dobbs Obama birther garbage. Billy said he loves this story, even though it's all lies and he himself said so many times, including last night. Billy said the story is bogus, yet he keeps reporting it every night. And btw, Tuesday night O'Reilly said Lou Dobbs would be on the Factor Wednesday night, and it never happened, with no explanation why.
Then O'Reilly had the stupid Barack & a Hard Place segment. Monica Crowley and Alan Colmes were on, and wow was it lame. Colmes is just on there for O'Reilly and Crowley to insult and make fun of, I guess he dont care, and he does it just to get on tv. They dont care what he says, and it's just done to have a Democrat on so they can trash him as a fool. And it's still unbalanced, because it's a 2 on 1 with Crowley and O'Reilly against Colmes. So the 1 Democrat who does get on has to go against 2 Republicans. They also talked about the Professor Gates story, and never once mentioned what Judge Napolitano said. And of course Crowley trashed Obama for the possibility that his administration might talk to the Taliban. Even O'Reilly disagreed with her, and said if it's true they should talk to them. It's a rumor, but Crowley acted like it was a fact, and you know she is nuts when even O'Reilly disagreed with her.
Then the unfunny right-wing idiot Dennis Miller was on. And of course he made a bunch of stupid and insulting unfunny jokes about Democrats, Obama, Biden, and Pelosi, and Billy laughed his ass off. But when late night comedians make jokes about Palin and Republicans Billy calls that wrong, and says it must stop. Then he puts the comedian Dennis Miller on his show to do the same damn thing, but somehow that's ok, what a massive hypocrite.
And btw, Miller called Obama a hack. Hey Billy, what happened to respect for the president, this hack of a has been comedian calls the president of the United States a hack and you say nothing. Miller calling Obama a hack, is like a homeless man calling Donald Trump poor. The only hack is Miller, and O'Reilly for letting him say that disrespectful garbage.
Then O'Reilly had the Did You See That segment, with the two blonde bimbos from FOX, Jane Skinner and Courtney Friel. And my God is this segment worthless. They talked about a Leprechaun video story from 2006, and some video of a dumb woman at a city council meeting rambling on and on with some insane crap from May of 2008. This crap is 1 to 3 years old, and it's not news. O'Reilly is only doing this stupid segment to have two more blonde bimbos on for ratings, it's garbage, and totally worthless. And it's probably the worst segment O'Reilly has on the entire show.
Then pinheads and patriots and the stupid e-mails. And another biased one sided O'Reilly Factor was over, with 6 Republican guests, to 1 Democrat guest, and the 1 Democrat was Alan Colmes who had to split his time with O'Reilly and Crowley, he was not even on alone. O'Reilly only does one regular segment where he has a Democrat guest on all alone, that's the Dr. Marc Lamont Hill segment, and he is not even on every week, just once in a while.
Fox Senior Legal Analyst Sides With Professor Gates
By: Steve - July 29, 2009 - 12:30pm
On Monday, Fox News Senior Legal Analyst and former New Jersey state Judge Andrew Napolitano said the police broke the law when they arrested Professor Henry Gates for disorderly conduct. Gates was charged with disorderly conduct during a conflict with police on his own property, but as Napolitano explained, the law only “allows an arrest for being disorderly if you are in public.
So if Professor Gates was arrested because of the words he used to police inside his house, on the front porch or on the front lawn, it was an improper arrest.” Napolitano added that police violated Gates Fourth Amendment rights the minute they entered his home without his permission:
NAPOLITANO: The law says, unless [a police officer] witnesses a felony...or unless he has a piece of paper from a judge--a search warrant or an arrest warrant--saying "you can go in that house," he can't go in the house. So when Professor Gates said "no you can't come in," and the police went in anyway [the police] violated the Constitution.
What say you, O'Reilly, Ingraham, Crowley, Huckabee, Morris, Miller, Rove, Gingrich, Goldberg, etc. And ask yourself this folks, Judge Napolitano is the Senior FOX News judicial analyst, and yet O'Reilly did not put him on the factor one time to discuss the case. Guess why, because Billy and his right-wing stooge fill-ins knew the Judge was calling it an improper arrest.
In fact, O'Reilly never reported the story at all, Monica Crowley and Mike Huckabee reported it last Thursday and Friday when O'Reilly was gone. And neither one of them had Judge Napolitano on to discuss it either, even though he is the Senior judicial analyst for FOX News. Talk about bias and ignoring the facts, here it is, from O'Reilly and everyone who does his show.
The Tuesday 7-28-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 29, 2009 - 11:10am
The TPM was called Who's Looking Out For Us? O'Reilly talked about an article in the Wall Street Journal that said the oil speculators caused the $4.00 a gallon gas prices for no reason, except to make them rich. And for once O'Reilly was right about something, he reported that these speculators were crooks. But it's not like many other people did not know it, the only people who denied it were the gas and oil companies, and the stooges on the right in Congress, and on the FOX News Network.
O'Reilly acted like he was the only guy that knew what happened, when it was common knowledge that these crooks bid the price of oil up for no reason just to get rich. Paul Krugman and many liberal writers wrote articles about it, before O'Reilly reported it. In fact, he probably found out from them, then he reported it, and took all the credit. And btw, Billy said see that he's looking out for you, and that he is right 95% of the time. Which is just ridiculous, because the truth is he is usually spinning 95% of the time, but in his mind he believes he is right 95% of the time.
O'Reilly is a right-wing spin doctor, who is clearly not looking out for you. In this one case he was right, but the rest of the time he is pretty much only looking out for the Republican party, and their conservative agenda. He sure as hell does not look out for any liberals or Democrats, because he is opposed to everything they do. So he looks out for the 30% of Republicans in America, and that's about it. I do give him credit for being right about the oil speculators, but that's about the only thing he has been right about. The rest of his reporting is right-wing spin, at least 95% of it. Just look at the guest list balance, it's 114 Republican to 28 Democrat, with 3 shows left this month. That alone proves that O'Reilly is a conservative, and proves he is biased.
Then O'Reilly had Karl Rove on to discuss it, and for once Rove disagreed with Billy. But only because the oil speculation rip-off happened under Bush, so Rove had to defend his boss and his friend. He's not called Bush's Brain for nothing. Rove disagreed with O'Reilly and tried to justify it by saying it was just supply and demand, even after the WSJ article said it had nothing to do with supply and demand. That it was just greedy speculators manipulating the market to get rich. Rove spewed out his spin, and O'Reilly disagreed. At one point O'Reilly even admitted that he usually agrees with Rove, who is the biggest spin doctor in America, except for maybe Limbaugh and Hannity, but that this one time he is wrong, Rove did not agree, and kept the spin going.
Then they pulled Obama into it somehow, and trashed him. When Obama had nothing to do with it, because he was not even the president when it happened. O'Reilly spewed out some right-wing garbage that if we let the Government control things the dollar will fall and the deficit will go up. Which is so funny, because when Bush was spending our money like a drunken sailor, and the dollar was falling while he was president, Democrats complained about the price of the dollar, and the deficit. O'Reilly and all his right-wing friends laughed at them and made fun of them, they said who cares about the dollar and the deficit. And called the Democrats whiners, but now they are suddenly worried about the dollar and the deficit, just because we have a Democrat president, and he is spending money on things they do not like. What a joke, they are massive hypocrites.
And btw, all during the show Billy was running stripper video, teasing his segment on the Rhode Island teen stripper story. Then O'Reilly had the 2 Republican is it legal women on, Megyn Kelly and Lis Wiehl were on to talk about home loans 2 Democrats got, Chris Dodd and Kent Conrad. Billy smeared them for getting good deals on home loans, when Dodd has denied it, and neither one of them did anything illegal. If you were a Senator or a Congressman and someone offered you a good deal on a home loan you would take it too, especially when you know it's not illegal. It's a non-story, yet O'Reilly did it anyway just to smear 2 Democrats.
Kelly even defended Dodd, and Billy hated that. This story is years old, but O'Reilly brings it back just to make 2 Democrats look bad, when it's a non-story, and nothing will ever be done to them about it. Billy did not even mention that Dodd has denied he got a special deal, and provided evidence that the loan rate he got was the standard rate at the time, O'Reilly ignored all that, and if Kelly had not mentioned it nobody would have known. It was a year old smear job by O'Reilly on 2 Democrats of a non-story that nobody cares about.
Then they talked about a city manager in Florida who was fired simply because his wife is in porn. Billy and Wiehl said he will sue and win, Kelly said he will lose. I agree with Billy and Wiehl, it is wrong to fire the guy simply because his wife does porn, and frankly it's un-American. How the nut job Kelly can defend it is beyond me, even crazy O'Reilly said Kelly was wrong on this one. Then they did the Rhode Island teen stripper story, with strippers on poles video of course, like you cant talk about strippers without showing video of it.
Billy said the mayor signed an executive order blocking them from doing it, but they all said that was not enough, that they need to change the laws to make it illegal with real penalties. And all this crap was simply done for ratings, it's all garbage that nobody cares about, it's a states rights issue, yet O'Reilly sticks his nose in it from his tv studio in New York. It's not a national story, it's a local story, and a states rights issue, Billy just did it so he could run stripper video to get ratings.
Then O'Reilly had the Republican Bill Frist on to talk about the Obama health care plan. He is a former member of Congress, he was kicked out for being a right-wing idiot. He is the moron who did the long distance medical evaluation on Terry Schiavo, the woman who was braindead, and her husband wanted to pull the plug on her life support. This nut job Frist said from looking at video of her he decided she was not braindead, and that her husband should not be allowed to pull the plug, without even looking at her in person. So he's clearly a right-wing nut, and O'Reilly put him on the air all alone to smear the Obama health care plan, which is exactly what he did.
Frist said one or two things in it are good, but that the vast majority of it is really bad. Then he spewed out the GOP talking points on it, like a good little Republican spin doctor. But remember, this guy is a biased partisan, just like O'Reilly, and they hate the plan because a Democrat is doing it, so they have no credibility on the issue, because of their bias and their hatred of Obama. They both hate Obama and everything he does, so they can not be objective, they are partisans who have a biased opinion on the issue.
Then Billy had the crazy Glenn Beck on, and wow is he crazy, and I mean it. Beck is actually insane, something is wrong with him. Billy played video of Beck on his show doing an interview of himself, he called himself a fat idiot, and a nut, and then he agreed with himself. It was one of the dumbest things I have ever seen a so-called journalist do, it was insane. During the interview of himself Beck was wearing a suit as Beck #1, and a TF hat as Beck #2, the TF stands for The Factor, and Beck said he wore it as a tribute to O'Reilly. This was funny, but also scary at the same time, scary that a nut like that has a tv news show. If a democrat did stuff like this O'Reilly would call for him to be fired, but a Republican does it and he not only supports it, he has the nut on his show every week on top of that.
Then O'Reilly played another video of Beck wearing the German lederhosen costume, in the video Beck jumped up on his table, standing in front of an American flag he mocked Obama and his plans for the country. If a Democrat had done that to Bush O'Reilly would call him a traitor, especially while wearing a German costume. It was insanity, and pretty much un-American. Yet O'Reilly loved it, and just laughed it off as just Beck being Beck. This guy Beck is off the charts crazy, and O'Reilly is just as bad for giving this nut air time and dismissing his insanity. Billy asked Beck if he was worried that his crazy stuff will make him look like a nut, and Beck said it's ok because he gets good ratings. O'Reilly agreed and said thanks for being on the Factor. In O'reilly world if it gets good ratings it's ok, as long as a Republican does it, but if a Democrat does something he dont like he calls for them to be taken off the air.
Wow, both of them should be in a padded room at a mental institution, especially Beck. Then O'Reilly did the culture quiz with 2 more Republicans, Steve Doocy and Martha MacCallum. And that was 7 Republican guests to 0 Democrats. Then the pinheads and patriots and the crazy highly edited e-mails.
O'Reilly Spins The Obama Leadership Issue
By: Steve - July 28, 2009 - 2:30pm
Last night O'Reilly trashed Obama as a poor leader, he basically said Obama is a clueless and inexperienced president with bad leadership skills. Here is what he said:
O'REILLY: The president has now been in office six months, and last week was by far the worst seven days of his tenure.And now the facts, Gallup ran a poll on the Obama leadership in April of 2008, at the time 67% of the American people said Obama was a strong and decisive leader. Move forward to 7-25-09, Gallup ran another poll and it said the same thing. The poll shows that 67% of American still think Obama is a strong and decisive leader.
As you know, the president could not articulate his health care vision in a one-hour press conference, and he foolishly got involved in a Massachusetts racial beef which he knew little about. That one-two punch has shaken many Americans, some of who voted for Obama on hope, knowing he was an inexperienced leader.
The poll numbers bear this out. When asked by Rasmussen if the president handled the race deal well, 26 percent said he did, 46 percent believe he did not. The latest Rasmussen Poll Monday has just 30 percent of Americans strongly approving of Mr. Obama's job performance; 40 percent strongly disapprove.
So obviously, this is not good for President Obama.
The problem is his leadership. He simply could not explain the complicated health care deal. Mr. Obama is asking Americans to invest trillions of taxpayer dollars into a new big-government program that is murky.
The race deal was also a failure to lead. Why bother getting involved in a local Cambridge, Massachusetts, beef, even if your friend is involved? A president should never do that or issue a harsh comment like "stupid" unless he has every single fact. The most powerful man on earth has to understand his power. President Obama does not seem to.
Millions of Americans voted for Barack Obama because they were fed up with the establishment who failed them. Obama ran on hope. Some folks said OK. But hope can turn to disdain pretty darn fast, and that's what we saw last week.
So nothing has changed, not one point, in over a year. It's all in O'Reilly's biased and warped mind, the folks like Obama, unlike O'Reilly who hates him and tries to smear him with a bogus Rasmussen poll. The folks say they believe Obama is a strong and decisive leader, Billy says he has no leadership, so who are you going to believe, the folks, or the biased partisan spin doctor Bill O'Reilly.
O'Reilly Shows His Bias on Life Expectancy
By: Steve - July 28, 2009 - 1:30pm
O'Reilly will say anything to defend the current health care system in America, and to trash the Obama health care plan, even make things up. Last night Billy read an audience letter about life expectancy From Peter in Canada:
PETER: "Has anyone noted that life expectancy in Canada under our health system is higher than the USA?"Yes he actually said that, Billy claims that because we have more people we dont live as long as people in Canada. Which is insanity, life expectancy has nothing to do with the number of people in a country.
BILLY: "Well Peter, that's to be expected," he said, "we have ten times as many people as you do!"
From wikipedia: There are a number of factors that have been shown to correlate with a longer life. Some factors that influence life expectancy include family history, marital status, economic status, physique, exercise, diet, drug use including smoking and alcohol consumption, disposition, education, environment, sleep, climate, and health care.
The number of people in a country has nothing to do with it, none, zero, zip, zilch. Proving that O'Reilly is a biased idiot that will lie and make stuff up to deny Canada has a better health care system than we do. Not to mention, the fact that many countries have less people than we do, and they have a life expectancy far lower than America. Proving a 2nd time that O'Reilly just makes stuff up to fit his biased political agenda.
The Monday 7-27-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 28, 2009 - 10:10am
The TPM was called Lack of Leadership. O'Reilly opened the show with a photo of Obama on the screen, under it the caption said lack of leadership?
So basically, O'Reilly is saying the president of the United States of America has no leadership. Which is something he would never ever say with a Republican president, no matter how bad he was, or what he did. It's disrespectful, and an insult. Then O'Reilly spewed out his biased right-wing talking points and did exactly that, he said the president has no leadership, and even implied he is not up to the job, and that the American people did not get the kind of leader they thought they were getting.
And all that is one opinion, from a biased right-wing stooge who hates Obama and disagrees with everything he does. So how can you expect to get a non-partisan objective analysis from a guy who hates Obama. It's no different than if Karl Rove or Newt Gingrich had wrote that TPM. Billy said last week was the worst 7 days of the Obama presidency, then he cited the biased and bogus Rasmussen poll as evidence. When the Gallup poll still has Obama at 56% job approval, which is no drop at all from last friday.
Here is the best part, O'Reilly cites the bogus and biased Rasmussen poll to claim Obama has no leadership, and does an entire TPM saying Obama is a weak leader. When a new poll from Gallup dated 7-24-09 says this:
Obama Gets High Marks on Leadership, EmpathySo 3 days after a Gallup poll shows the vast majority (67%) of Americans think Obama is a strong and decisive leader, you have the moron O'Reilly doing a TPM saying Obama has no leadership. That's bias folks, and total partisan right-wing garbage from O'Reilly. He is saying the exact opposite of what 67% of Americans are saying. Then on top of that he cites the biased partisan Rasmussen poll as his evidence, when everyone knows the Rasmussen polls are worthless. If you look at the Obama numbers on leadership at Gallup.com it is unchanged from a year ago, In August of 2008 he was at 67% approval on leadership, and 3 days ago he was also at 67%, so O'Reilly just made it all up.
PRINCETON, NJ -- Solid majorities of Americans believe U.S. President Barack Obama is a strong and decisive leader and say he understands the problems Americans face in their daily lives.
In the poll 67% say Obama is a strong and decisive leader, only 31% disagree. In the same poll 66% say Obama understands the problems Americans face in their daily lives.
And btw, O'Reilly said the opposition to the Obama health care bill would go up to 60% after his speech when the next polls come out. He got that wrong too, it's 54% opposed to 41% for it. Basically O'Reilly made a fool out of himself with this insane no leadership TPM, and proved to everyone that he is nothing more than a biased hack, who hates Obama and will do anything to make him look bad. Because 67% of the people see Obama as a strong and decisive leader, while at the same time O'Reilly is arguing he has no leadership. Then he claims to be fair to Obama, and to look out for the folks. When the folks disagree with him, and only partisan right-wing idiots are saying Obama has no leadership.
Then O'Dummy had Juan Williams and Mary K. Ham on to agree with him, and of course they both did. They both said he is right, and that Obama has a leadership problem. I guess they dont look at the actual polls, as in the Gallup poll, or they do, and they ignore them for partisan reasons. Billy asked Juan about the Professor Gates story, and they trashed Obama for saying the cops acted stupidly, then Juan (the mind reader) said it was not racial profiling. What a joke, it was Billy and his 2 Republican friends sitting around trashing Obama and Biden, and they call that fair and balanced news reporting.
Then a segment on the Lou Dobbs birther crap about Obama not being a U.S. citizen. Billy had Richard Cohen on from the Southern Poverty Law Center on, he has called for Dobbs to be fired for putting out that right-wing propaganda. O'Reilly even said it was bogus, that he investigated it and he said the whole thing was garbage, Billy even said the story should die, but he defended Lou Dobbs, and said it's ok because Dobbs was just doing it for ratings. In O'Reilly world everything is ok, as long as you are doing it for ratings, and as long as a Republican is doing it.
Imagine what Billy would say if it was about Bush, and Olbermann was doing birther stories, Billy would be outraged and call for a correction. But when a Republican does it, Billy defends him, and says it's ok because he's doing it for ratings. And btw, I agree with O'Reilly on one thing, Dobbs should not be fired, but I do think CNN should make him stop doing those bogus birther stories. Obama is a U.S citizen, and these idiots should report some real news and drop the birther insanity. Even Ann Coulter said the birther stories were crazy and it just makes Republican look bad to continue them, so you knows it's bad if Coulter says it is, haha.
And btw, O'Reilly is a massive hypocrite with double standards on it, because when Rosie said things about 9-11 on the View that O'Reilly did not like he called for ABC to fire her. So as usual, he has double standards for liberals and conservatives, and he is a giant hypocrite.
Then Billy did another Michael Jackson story, even after he cried for a week about the media over reporting it. Can you spell hypocrisy boys and girls, I can. Billy had Dr. Bruce Levy on to discuss the Jackson death. And did a full segment on it, which is ridiculous, especially when you cried for a week saying the media is doing too many Jackson stories.
Then O'Reilly had what I call the blonde bimbo ratings con, he had the hot for words bimbo on to talk about the meaning of words. Like people can not just google a word if they want to know what it means. This segment is ridiculous, it's just another ratings con by putting a hot blonde with big boobs on to get ratings. And what a shocker, the words he picked were bikini, vacation, beach, and picnic. Okay, who dont know what the words bikini, vacation, beach, and picnic mean, show of hands, anyone not know?
All during the segment while the big boob blonde bimbo was talking, Billy had the crew show video of girls in bikinis on vacation at the beach. This is just cheap garbage to get ratings, it has no news value at all, and Billy has the nerve to complain about the media for what they do when he does this nonsense. No wonder he defended Lou Dobbs, he does whatever he can to get ratings too.
And btw, all during the show Billy ran anti-Obama health care commercials put out by a partisan right-wing special interest group. Of course no commercials by groups supporting the plan were run, like doctors groups, only anti-Obama ads were run.
Then the culture warrior garbage with the 2 Republicans that work for FOX, Carlson and Hoover were on to talk about an internet sitcom on marriage between 3 people, called Family. Billy said see, I told you so, and that if you allow gay marriage next 3 people will want to be married, then next maybe a duck. Billy said he predicted it, except there is one small problem with his prediction. THEY ARE NOT MARRIED, it's an internet tv show, and there is no marriage. And not one state in America has made marriage between more than 2 people legal. Yet O'Reilly did a segment on a fake marrige between 3 people in an internet show, to claim his prediction came true.
Ummmmmmmm, huh? That is so insane it's just laughable. Even Carlson and Hoover said he was wrong, and that his prediction did not come true. I am calling for an investigation, I want the Feds to investigate if O'Reilly actually went to college, because he is a fricking dumbass. Only a retarded 5 year old would make a claim like that, it's a fricking internet sitcom moron, they are not married, and it's still against the law for more than 2 people to get married.
They also talked about a video of a dancing wedding, between a man and a woman, where everyone danced at the wedding, during the ceremony. Ummmmm, ok, who fricking cares, and how in the hell is this news. Billy called it a disco wedding, then at the end he said he dont care what they do because it's a free country. Then why report it moron, other than to waste our time, it was not news and should not have even been reported. The last topic was breast feeding in public, Billy had a problem with it, and said they should do it in private. Carlson and Hoover both disagreed, and said they should be allowed to do it whenever the kid needs feeding.
The the no reality Reality Check segment, in one so-called reality check Billy cried about Palin some more, and how the media unfairly attacked her, then he said she is just one of the regular folks. Yeah and I'm Babe Ruth, Palin was attacked because she is a far right moron who was not qualified to be the vice president. And McCain picked her just because she was a woman, and the far right loved her extreme right views. Not to mention she was at a church where a witch doctor did a spell to protect her, so that makes her totally insane, as in Glenn Beck insane. Only right-wing idiots like her, because they are biased, everyone else sees her for what she is, a dumbass far right moron.
Then some other ridiculous reality check crap that was not worth reporting, the pinheads and patriots garbage, and the cherry picked highly edited Factor e-mails. And btw, I have seen unedited e-mails sent to O'Reilly, many of them, then I see what he read on the air, and they are nothing like what was sent to him. Billy edits them so much it's ridiculous, so do not believe a word of any e-mails he gets. They are highly edited to remove anything Billy does not like, and they are cherry picked by him, so the real e-mails sent by people like me never make it on the air.
The Friday 7-24-09 O'Reilly/Huckabee Factor Review
By: Steve - July 25, 2009 - 11:50am
There was no TPM because the partisan Republican Mike Huckabee was filling in for O'Reilly. As usual, when O'Reilly is not there a Republican fills in for him, proving he is a liar when he says he is a non-partisan Independent. Huckabee opened the show trashing Obama for his stupidity comment about the cops in Cambridge. Even though Obama backed off those comments and said it was a poor choice of words. Huckabee still trashed him for it, he had the Republican idiot Mike Gallagher on to discuss it, and a Democrat too. Opio Sokoni was also on to discuss it.
What's really funny is Huckabee and Gallagher said it was not racism, then later in the segment they both admitted they were not there, so they do not know if it was or not. But all during the segment they argued it was not racism, when they have no way of knowing if it was or not. Which just shows what stupid and biased partisans do, they take one side even when they dont have a clue if they are right or not. And of course it was a 2 on 1 with 2 Republicans against the 1 Democrat, and of course both Republicans were white, arguing that a white man was not guilty of racism, what a shocker, not.
Then Huckabee had a civil rights attorney on and she said the Professor has a very good lawsuit. Jennifer Bonjean was on, and unlike the biased Republican Huckabee who just made a partisan political argument for the cops, she cited the law, and said they made an unlawful arrest. You can not arrest someone for disorderly conduct in their own home, so the cop got him out of his home, then arrested him, so she said it was an unlawful arrest and he has a good case. Huckabee said the Professor should not file a lawsuit, and show some respect to the cops.
Which is typical right-wing garbage, if they dont punish the cops for racism they will keep doing it, dumbass. Funny how these Republicans say when a poor man (or a minority) does a crime they must be punished to send a message to the rest of the people. But when a cop does it, suddenly they sing a different tune, then it's leave the cop alone and show him some respect. It's a double standard, and massive hypocrisy. And Huckabee is no different than O'Reilly or any of them, they all have a double standard and hypocrisy to the extreme.
Then Huckabee pulled an O'Reilly, he cited the bogus and biased Rasmussen poll numbers on the Obama job approval, and said his approval is below 50 percent. This is garbage, and total right-wing propaganda. Scott Rasmussen is a Republican who has biased polls, and that is a fact. That's why nobody uses them but FOX News and Republican spin doctors. The real poll to go by is the Gallup poll, it is not perfect, but it can be trusted. Anyone who cites a Rasmussen poll is a dishonest and partisan right-wing spin doctor. They are cherry picking the results from that one poll to make Obama look bad, while ignoring the numbers from all the other polls.
Right now as I type this on Saturday 7-25-09 the Obama job approval number at Gallup.com is 56 percent, which is not below 50 percent as O'Reilly, Ingraham, Crowley, and Huckabee claim it is, they are lying to you. They are poll cherry picking, and using the biased Republican Rasmussen poll to do it, which is the only poll that has Obama below 50 percent. Because they are dishonest and biased partisan liars. And btw, O'Reilly is a real jackass, and a total right-wing idiot, but at least he is not boring, this Huckabee is boring as hell, and just like watching paint dry.
Then Huckabee ran a re-run of Billy and Glenn Beck, and my God watching it a 2nd time was even worse than the 1st time. It was the segment with Beck talking some insanity about killer clowns, and this guy has a tv show, which is really insane. Beck is actually crazy, and yet FOX gives him his own show.
Then Huckabee did a story on Palin retiring with only a 40% approval, and a 53% disapproval. He had Democrat Mathew Littman on with the right-wing nut Amanda Carpenter. And of course Huckabee and Carpenter love Palin, defended her, and said she was smart and qualified to be the president. Which is pure insanity, and only right-wing idiots think that. Palin is a dumbass, she is literally dumb as a rock, maybe dumber. Yet these right-wing idiots love her, and claim she is a rock star. Which shows how biased they are, they let her faults go because she is a Republican. If she were a Democrat they would rip her to pieces for how stupid she is, but since she's a Republican they defend her and love her.
Littman said Palin was a moron, and that he hopes she is the Republican nominee for president in 2012, because Obama will crush her like a bug. He said how dumb she is, and he was telling the truth. Then Carpenter got mad and said he was over the line, when he was exactly right, and 100% accurate. She was just mad that he told the truth about her, and did not put out the politically correct nonsense that Palin was actually pretty smart.
Huckabee and Carpenter could not understand why people hate Palin so much. Earth to Morons, because she is stupid, and unqualified to be dog catcher, let alone president. Not to mention all the hateful things she said during the election, did you 2 right-wing losers forget she called Obama a man who pals around with terrorists, did you forget that already, we didn't, idiots. It's called selective memory, they ignore all the hate speech Palin spewed out and then wonder why everyone hates her so much, wake up losers, Palin is an idiot that will never be the president, ever.
Then Huckabee did a lame story crying about how Obama said the media is over-reporting the Professor arrest story and his statements on it. When Obama is right, there are more important things to report on, but of course Huckabee disagreed, and did a whole fricking segment on it, again. He had some Boston Professor on to agree with him, a Republican as usual, just like O'Reilly does. It was just done to make Obama look bad, and to get ratings from the right-wing Factor viewers.
Then Huckabee ran a best of reality check re-runs from O'Reilly, it was total nonsense, and most of the so-called reality checks had no check. It was just O'Reilly trashing Democrats, and giving his biased opinion on something they said. That's not a reality check, it's a partisan opinion on Democrats from a biased right-wing idiot, and that's a real reality check. And then the show was over, thank God, haha.
The Thursday 7-23-09 O'Reilly/Crowley Factor Review
By: Steve - July 24, 2009 - 11:10am
No TPM because the far right nut job Monica Crowley was filling in for Billy. I did not do a full review, but I did take a few notes. Crowley opened the show reporting on the Professor Gates race arrest, he's the black man who was arrested for breaking into his own home by the white cop. And of course the partisan nut job Crowley used it to trash Obama for saying the cops were stupid to arrest him, and make it political. She did have a balanced segment on it, with a Democrat black man and a Republican white man, which is better than O'Reilly usually does. Normally O'Reilly only has a Republican on and all you get is one sided right-wing spin. So she did pretty well on that point.
And btw, O'Reilly never said a word about this story. It was only when Crowley filled in for him last night that the story got reported, O'Reilly ignored it for two days, and never said a word about it. Crowley even went to commercial and came back with a 2nd segment on the same story. And you can tell she is new at the hosting deal, because you could tell she was reading a teleprompter. In both segments it was Crowley and the Republican against the one Democrat, so it's not really fair and balanced because the host is always a Republican and it's a 2 on 1 situation.
Then Crowley did a segment on the Obama health care plan with Scott Rasmussen and Bernadine Healy. This time there was no balance, none at all. Because all 3 of them hate it, and all 3 of them trashed the Obama health care plan. So she pulled an O'Reilly, have 2 Republicans on and 0 Democrats, then trash Obama with nobody there to give the counterpoint. Which is what usually happens when O'Reilly is there, they just put a Democrat or two on once in a while to make it look good. And they are usually only on for Billy to make fun of, talk down to, cut off and scream at, and dismiss everything they say as liberal bias. So even when he does have a Democrat on, they do not get a fair shake.
Then she had a segment on the Blue Dog Democrats who are opposed to the Obama health care plan. But what they never tell you is that Blue Dog Dem equals moderate Republican, just like Joe Lieberman. They are moderate Republicans who ran in a conservative district, and they could not win as a Republican, so they ran as a Democrat, but in reality they are moderate Republicans, pretending to be Democrats. So basically, I dont give a damn what they think on anything, because they are frauds who ran as a Democrat just to get elected. Not all of them, just most of them.
Then a totally lame factor flashback, from like 3 days ago, haha. A flashback is usually flashing back a year, 2 years, whatever, this one flashed back to about 3 days ago. Crowley (the O'Reilly ass kisser) ran a re-run of the right-wing nut job Harry Alford calling Boxer a racist, for simply quoting something a member of the NAACP said that disagreed with Alford. If that's racism, I'm A-Rod. And Billy even said he did not think it was racism, yet he keeps talking about the segment, and even re-runs it 3 days after it first run. The whole thing is ridiculous, and they keep showing it because the guy made Boxer look bad, to him and his right-wing viewers anyway. Alford made a fool of himself with the false and insane racism charges, yet Billy and Crowley loved it.
Then more on the Erin Andrews peeping video story, and Crowley ran more of the video, with body parts blurred out, even after her attorney told the tv networks to stop showing it. I guess they dont know what stop showing it means. Crowley teased this segment all during the show, she said SOME women are blaming Andrews, for being too sexy and using her good looks to get where she is, and that it's her fault. Crowley implied more than one woman was saying that, well it turns out it was ONE woman who said that. Some moron woman sportswriter somewhere, it was ONE woman, not SOME women.
Earth to Crowley, you and the ONE woman who said it was her fault are both idiots. She is an idiot for saying it was her fault, and you are an idiot for reporting that SOME women are saying it was her fault. ONE woman is not SOME women, moron. And they only reported it to give them an excuse to run the video again, to get ratings from the perverted 70 year old factor viewers. So Crowley makes up a fake controversy by saying SOME women are blaming her, just to give them an excuse to do another segment on it, and run the video again, when it was only ONE woman who said that. And that woman is a fricking idiot. Just like Crowley. This is a tabloid story that Geraldo and TMZ should be reporting, not a so-called hard news show.
Then Crowley did a totally stupid segment on late night comedians doing fat jokes about a woman Obama nominated. Let's go over this one more time, they are comedians, they do jokes, that is their job, and they have free speech. So who gives a damn what jokes they do about who, I sure dont. So just shut the hell up already, nobody cares what jokes they do, except you right-wing idiots. They get paid to do jokes, so get a life already and report some real news. Crowley even had some nut job guest on to discuss it, Meme Roth, and my God is this woman stupid. She said the woman is too fat to have the job, and not a role model to kids so Obama should not have nominated her because she is fat.
Earth to Meme, you are one stupid bitch. A persons weight has nothing to do with how smart they are, and if she is smart enough to do it her weight should have nothing to do with it. She is hired to do a job, not be a 100 lb. supermodel, or a role model to anyone. And btw, have you heard that there are discrimination laws, and that it's against the law to discriminate against someone because of their weight. Who mad you God, and who decided you get to judge when someone is too fat to do something. So Meme, you win the idiot of the week award, becaue you are a total moron. And one last thing Meme, I hope you get fat one day, like 250 lbs, just as revenge for your idiotic views on fat people.
And that is how Crowley ended the show, with this idiotic woman saying an Obama nominee was too fat to have the job.
News Ignored by The Great Bill O'Reilly
By: Steve - July 23, 2009 - 12:10pm
Notice what News O'Reilly is ignoring. The other night Billy had a fake race story with Harry Alford and Barbara Boxer. Mr. Alford claims Boxer was racist to quote a black man from the NAACP who made a statement that disagreed with him on Cap & Trade. Which is just ridiculous, and not racism at all, except in his crazy mind.
Then you have a real racism case with white cops on a black Harvard Professor, what does O'Reilly do, he ignores the entire story.
Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. is at the center of a Cambridge Police controversy after the African American studies professor was arrested for disorderly conduct Thursday - accused of breaking into his own home.
One neighbor said, "It escalated and I don't think they should have arrested him definitely not." Even president Obama spoke out about it and called the police stupid for arresting him. Yet O'Reilly ignored the entire story, but he had time to put that right-wing nut Harry Alford on to make false racism charges against Barbara Boxer.
Notice what else O'Reilly is ignoring, the stock market. Back when Obama first took office the stock market was dropping, and O'Reilly used it to trash Obama almost every day. Even though he had just become the president and the drop was from what Bush did, not what Obama did. O'Reilly still used it to hammer Obama, he said it shows that wall street has no confidence in Obama and his economic plans.
For weeks on end O'Reilly linked the stock market drop to the Obama economic policy. To make Obama look bad, and to make the people think his economic policy is causing the market to drop. Now fast forward to today, the market is up 1,500 points since he took office, and it just broke 9,000 today.
What does O'Reilly say, nothing, zip, zilch, nada. He is silent as a mouse, and he no longer links the Obama economic policy to the stock market. Because now it's making Obama look good, so he ignores it. But when he could use it for partisan reasons to make Obama look bad he did it almost every day.
If we use O'Reilly logic, when you blame Obama for the market going down, you should give him credit when it goes up. But O'Reilly does not do that, he only blames Obama when it's going down, and claims it shows the market does not like his economic plans. But when it goes up 1,500 points in a few months O'Reilly totally ignores it and gives him no credit at all.
Because O'Reilly is a dishonest partisan right-wing stooge, who does nothing but use right-wing spin and GOP talking points to smear Obama. No matter what happenes he will find a way to spin it to make Obama look bad. Then he claims he is an Independent with no partisan dog in the fight, as he did last night. Which is just ridiculous, because O'Reilly is just as partisan as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, or Glenn Beck, the only difference is he refuses to admit it.
If you listen to Rush, watch Hannity, or Beck, then you watch O'Reilly, it's the same damn thing, with just a different guy saying it. Rush, Hannity, Beck, and O'Reilly, all say the same things, report on the same issues, and put the same right-wing spin on all of it, there is no difference. And O'Reilly is the worst, because he is even more dishonest than the rest of them by claiming he is a non-partisan Independent.
All 4 of them are dishonest right-wing spin doctors, they do nothing but take political issues and spin them to make Obama or a Democrat look bad. They do not report the truth, they give you their opinions on the news and the political issues they report on.
At least with Rush, Hannity, and Beck, they are honest about being conservatives. Where O'Reilly even lies about that, along with everything else. None of them can be trusted to report the news, especially O'Reilly, who is more dishonest than any of them. Look at what he reports and what he says, then look at what he ignores. It's all right-wing spin to make Obama and the Democrats look bad, with 95% Republican guests.
Hey Billy I Found That Hate on The Right
By: Steve - July 23, 2009 - 9:00am
The hate you claim you can not find, And it's from your viewers, here is part of an article written by Rick Perlstein at newsweek.com.
In Bill O'Reilly's Sights
Run afoul of the conservative commentator, and feel the wrath of his avid Army
By Rick Perlstein | Jul 21, 2009
Last week I was greeted with an uncomfortable curiosity: a brace of hate mail in my inbox, received within a 20-minute span. The first came at 7:26: "You are an uneducated writer! You need to get your fact straight! You are a liberal bastard! You need to get informed!" All arguable propositions, perhaps, but that still left the question: why was this person realizing that precisely now, and why, two minutes later, did "Dr. Anthony" feel moved to inform me, "I've noticed a trend that left-wing extremists tend to be exceedingly ugly & perverse. Living with that ugliness & deviance seems to lead to an aberration of thought as well. I am attempting to formulate the correlation..."
And then, while he did, as if on a schedule, another deluge hit some three hours later, the messages several notches more frightening:
"Your a piece of s---. we will hunt you left wing libs down one by one. you lieing piece of trash."
"So perlstein,whats your problem with Fox and conservatives. you jews should be dancing on the ceilings.you have control of the government,obama,congress, senate...."
"You sir are far more dangerous than Sarah Palin ever will be."
YouTube soon revealed all. Bill O'Reilly had run a segment on an article I published in the July 20 Newsweek, along with a picture—my author photograph—and a description of me—"this Perlstein," who had written "some book no one heard of," spit out with such venom that more than one friend of mine thought of Sasha Baron Cohen's Borat singing about throwing a Jew down a well.
I was, Bill O'Reilly explained, an agent of "media corruption." In a subsequent newspaper column, O'Reilly summarized the problem thus: "Under the guise of hard news reporting, the media is pushing rank propaganda on the citizenry. Dr. Joseph Goebbels the Nazi propaganda minister, successfully developed this tactic in the 1930s."
Were I a conservative, and a fan of Sarah Palin, and a viewer of Bill O'Reilly—but not a particularly conscientious reader of Newsweek—I would have been mad at me, too.
My point was not to give my personal opinion of Palin or her followers, or O'Reilly, Beck, and theirs, but that of another segment of the Republican coalition, and explore the consequences of this divide for American politics. Maybe I did so effectively, maybe not; that's for the reader to judge.
O'Reilly's main point was that since I'm a liberal writer, and even and unabashedly a liberal activist, I couldn't analyze any of this in a fair or useful way. Again, I trust the reader to make that judgment themselves. I never hide my liberal sympathies, as a quick visit to Google will confirm (one of the first articles that will come up is my eulogy for my late friend William F. Buckley, who I describe as my "role model" in striving to make ideologically pointed arguments with civility and intellectual responsibility—and who was among the many conservatives kind in expressing their admiration for the two books I have published on the history of conservatism).
Bill O'Reilly got a lot wrong. So what? He's entitled; nobody's perfect. But he also did something far harder to excuse. He invented, for his loyal viewers who have invested in him their trust as a man who gives it straight, with "no spin," a villain—someone to hate. He did so in language that was precisely and specifically violent. "This Perlstein," he asked his guest:
"Doesn't he have a Web site where he says he wants conservatives to explode or something?" (He doesn't) No wonder one of his followers was willing, on the evidence provided, to call me "a homosexual" who should "move to a third world country."

The Wednesday 7-22-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 23, 2009 - 8:30am
The Factor was on an hour later at 8pm cst, after the Obama press conference on his health care plan, the TPM was called Health Care Push. Now remember this, on the Tuesday show O'Reilly promised to watch the Obama press conference with an open mind, then do an honest and non-partisan review of it. So what does Mr. non-partisan open mind say about the press conference, he said the plan is chaotic, that it was crazy, that it's not going to fly, that he thought his head would explode because he still dont understand what's in it, and that it will never pass this year. If that's being a non-partisan with an open mind, I'm Babe Ruth.
O'Reilly trashed it all, and had 2 reporters from the press conference on to discuss it. Sam Youngman and A.B. Stoddard were on, but they barely got to speak. O'Reilly was mad and almost yelling at them, he sounded like Glenn Beck on one of his insane rants. O'Reilly said he has no idea what's in the bill because Obama did not go into specifics, called it crazy, said Obama has no way to pay for it, and predicted that in the next polls even less people will support it then they do now. The polls now have 50% opposed, 44% for it, O'Reilly said it will go to 60% opposed after that confusing press conference.
Youngman and Stoddard barely got a word in, and when they did speak they pretty much agreed with O'Reilly and said it will not pass by August, and maybe never. Then O'Reilly really went off the deep end, he said he has no partisan dog in this fight, yeah right, and I'm not a liberal either. O'Reilly is about as partisan as you can get on it, he hates it, and spews out the GOP talking points on it almost word for word, that's being a partisan, dumbass. Then Billy went into Glenn Beck land, he said he has a masters degree that cost him $30,000 and yet he does not understand what Obama just said. Hey Billy, if I were you I would ask for a refund, because you are an idiot.
I understand it, and I do not have a masters degree. The whole thing is just lies from O'Reilly, he understands it perfectly, he pretends he dont so he can cloud the issue and act like nobody knows what's in it. That is the Republican plan, pretend it's a nightmare that nobody understands, so you should not support it. Then O'Reilly had the partisan Republican idiot Dick (hooker toe sucker) Morris on to discuss it. Billy asked Morris if he understands it, and Morris said yes, so even the idiot Morris understands it. Then Morris trashed the whole thing with a laundry list of GOP lies and talking points.
Morris said the Obama health care plan will actually cost people more money, not less, and add $500 Billion to the deficit, Billy said do you know that for sure, Morris said yes, so it must be true, even though he has no evidence to prove it. Then the lying right-wing sack of shit said the Obama health care plan will take care away from the elderly and give it to illegal immigrants. All of which is lies, and O'Reilly said good job Morris, as if he actually reported the truth. If you believe any of this biased, one sided, right-wing garbage, you are a fool.
Then Billy teased the Erin Andrews peeping video for later in the show. And of course you know Billy loves that story and will cover it in detail. But when a Republican Senator is caught cheating on his wife, and having his family pay them off in small amounts to avoid the IRS, he ignores that, and that's called reporting the news on the Factor.
Then Dr. Marc Lamont Hill was on to discuss the Obama press conference. And of course Dr. Hill disagreed with all the partisan right-wing garbage O'Reilly was spewing out, and said that Obama did exlplain what the bill would do. Billy said you are just a partisan Obama supporter so of course you are going to say that. Basically dismissing everything Dr. Hill said, which was very disrespectful. Even when Dr. Hill was right, Billy disagreed and said the polls will back him up. Dr. Hill disagreed, and O'Reilly said if I'm right I get your tie. Then O'Reilly called Dr. Hill naive, and said he is spinning the Obama bill. Which is funny because Hill was telling the truth, and O'Reilly was the one doing the spinning.
O'Reilly said all Obama did was bloviate for an hour and did not give any specifics. Which is just ridiculous, O'Reilly is just a partisan right-wing idiot, spewing out the GOP talking points to smear Obama because his Republicans friends are opposed to it. All the time that Dr. Hill was talking O'Reilly just shook his head side to said saying no, and did not listen to a word he said. And remember that's O'Reilly doing an analysis of the press conference with an open mind. Wow, I'd hate to see what he would say with a closed mind.
Then Billy had the stupid Barack & a Hard Place segment with Alan Colmes and Monica Crowley. Monica cried about Obama saying his opponents are using scare tactics, which is 100% true, and yet she said he was lying, and called it appalling. My God is she insane, Obama is right and they are using fear tactics, and what hypocrisy, Bush spent 8 years using fear tactics, he was the king of fear tactics, but she had no problem with it when Bush did it. Colmes even nailed Crowley for her hypocrisy, she disagreed and said it was totally different what Bush did, and of course the right-wing O'Reilly jumped in to defend her.
Colmes said the best thing Obama did in the last 7 days was give the speech to the NAACP. Crowley and O'Reilly even agreed it was a good speech, which is shocking, that they actually agreed Obama did something right. This was the same speech Laura Ingraham trashed as a fill in for O'Reilly last friday, which shows how nuts she is. Near the end of the segment Billy got one last shot in on Obama, he said the Obama health care plan is nothing but BS, and that's an open mind?
Then O'Reilly had Dennis Miller on to insult and make unfunny jokes about Democrats. Which is unreal hypocrisy, when late night (so-called) liberal comedians make jokes about Republicans, O'Reilly calls it hateful and wrong, says enough is enough and it has to stop, then he has Dennis Miller on to do the same damn thing he complained about, except he does it to Democrats, so somehow that's ok in O'Reilly world. They are comedians, they do it on a comedy show, and it's their job. O'Reilly has Dennis Miller do it on what he claims is a real news show, so that is 10 times worse than comedians doing it on an actual comedy show. The hypocrisy is stunning.
Then O'Reilly had a new segment called Did You See That. With 2 hot blonde bimbos that work for FOX, and of course no Democrats. It's a new segment to talk about internet videos, Billy had Courtney Friel and Jane Skinner on to talk about videos. And guess what they talked about, The Erin Andrews peeping video of her naked in a hotel room. What a joke, this is just another lame segment to get ratings by putting 2 hot blondes on the air to get ratings. Then they show sexy videos, and talk about them likes it's actual news.
It's tabloid garbage to get ratings, and the kind of crap Geraldo and TMZ should be reporting, not a so-called real news show. They also talked about a Chris Brown youtube video, who cares, and how is this news. Then the pinheads and patriots and the cherry picked highly edited e-mails. And another ridiculous right-wing biased O'Reilly Factor was over, thank God.
And btw, O'Reilly never tells anyone this, but here is the main reason he and his right-wing friends are opposed to the Obama health care plan. They do not want Obama and the Democrats to get the credit for fixing the health care system, for political reasons. Because if it gets passed and Obama gives all Americans health care, it could help keep the Democratic party in power for years, maybe 20 years, or more. All those people will vote Democrat, and the Republicans will be in the minority for a long time. So they are trying to defeat the Obama health care plan for pure political reasons.
Which is un-American, and if the Democratic party were doing it O'Reilly would call them traitors. The Republican party does not give a damn about fixing the health care system, or getting health care to the 50 million americans that do not have it. They just want to block Obama from doing it so it will hurt him and the Democratic party for political gain, and that is un-American garbage. Yet O'Reilly never says a word about it, and in fact, he helps them, which makes him an un-American right-wing a-hole.
Remember that the Republicans have no health care plan, they just want to leave it the way it is. Their plan is to vote no on the Obama plan, and then hope it fails and they get political gain from it. They are putting political power ahead of the needs of the American people, and I think that is just pathetic. Not to mention 14,000 people a day are losing the health care they have now, 5 million since last September alone. So every day the Obama plan is delayed 14,000 more Americans lose their health care, and O'Reilly does not give a damn. All he cares about is helping his right-wing friends defeat the Obama plan for political reasons.
Factor Military Analyst Col. Peters is an Idiot
By: Steve - July 22, 2009 - 4:20pm
Rick Sanchez at CNN reported on what Billy's military analyst said about the captured U.S. soldier. Here is the transcript.
SANCHEZ: I have heard a lot in this business, but this one that you're about to hear with me may take the proverbial cake. And it was said on national television. Here's the setup for you.
Army PFC, Private First Class Bowe Bergdahl is being held by the Taliban. They're threatening to kill him. He is an American. There are questions about how he got captured, which I raised here yesterday with my own analyst. But listen to what this retired army lieutenant colonel said on the air, which, for the most part, goes unchallenged. The analyst's name is Ralph Peters.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)SANCHEZ: "Can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills" -- stop quote.
COL. RALPH PETERS, (RET.), U.S. ARMY: Nobody in the military that I have heard is defending this guy. He's an apparent deserter. Reports are indeed that he abandoned his buddies, abandoned his post and walked off. We will see what the ultimate truth of it is.
But if he did, if he's a deserter in wartime, well, as one of my old platoon sergeants used to say, he's in (INAUDIBLE) I want to be clear. If, when the facts are in, we find out that there is some convoluted chain of events, he really was captured by the Taliban, I'm with him.
But if he walked away from his post and his buddies in wartime, I don't care how hard it sounds, as far as I'm concerned, the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
I have watched that clip a dozen times now. And I still can't believe what I heard that man say, a former U.S. military officer, a lieutenant colonel, saying that he would be OK with the Taliban, if I heard it right -- tell me if I'm wrong -- he would be OK with the Taliban executing Private First Class Bowe Bergdahl if he is, in fact, a deserter.
Is the military saying that he's a deserter in any way? We have checked. No, not at all. But Ralph Peters suggests that he is. As we have reported, Private First Class Bowe Bergdahl has a family and an entire town that are praying to God for his safety right now and that he be somehow released by the enemy.
I don't know what it is like to be in combat as a soldier. I don't. And I certainly don't know what it is like to be captured and held at gunpoint and threatened with death. I don't know what I would say or what I would do. Maybe Ralph Peters knows more than we do. After all, he seems to be willing to talk about it on national television.
We checked, by the way, and here's what we found. Peters was an Army intelligence officer, as far as we can tell, has never been captured by the enemy, as far as we can tell, maybe hasn't even been in combat.
I would like to ask him so he can tell us for himself what his perspective is, what he knows that the rest of us don't. But, when we called, he said he wasn't able to be on the show.
I asked you earlier to respond to this, by the way, and, man, did you ever. Let me read to you some of the comments that you have been sending in to us throughout the entire day.
This is on Twitter first. Let's go there.
"Peters is acting like a defense lawyer, using the trash-the-victim mentality on our captured soldier."SANCHEZ: Well, there you have it, some of your comments as you continue to share in this story as we bring it to you. We will continue to check. And, obviously, if Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters would like to join us on the show to maybe make us understand what the point is that he was trying to make, the offer will stand.
"He's not a deserter. The kid is just trying to survive."
"Peters' comments unconscionable. Is a 23-year-old guilty until proven innocent? Let's get this kid back."
"It was a stupid thing to say. He's an American in danger of enhanced interrogation for serving his country."
"Rick, it is completely out of line to politicize a soldier being taken. None of us know the specifics, including him."
And btw folks, NBC Pentagon correspondent Jim Miklaszewski reported yesterday that “senior Pentagon and military officials have ruled that out entirely, they say there is no evidence that he is a deserter.” Miklaszewski added that “they also point out that remarks like that are not the least bit helpful and in fact could endanger Pfc Bergdahl.”
Rep. John Boccieri (D-OH) and 22 other members of Congress wrote to Fox News chief executive Roger Ailes demanding "an apology to PFC Bergdahl's family and to the thousands of soldiers who put their lives on the line for our country. As a member of the military family, Mr. Peters should measure his remarks and remember that the United States will never abandon one of its own."
And remember this, Col. Peters is the Factor military analyst, he is the go to guy for O'Reilly when he needs military information. And the guy is a right-wing nut. This is the kind of idiot O'Reilly puts on his show to be his military analyst, which also shows what a right-wing idiot O'Reilly is too.
The Tuesday 7-21-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 22, 2009 - 9:20am
The TPM was called Health Care Collapse. Billy quoted an article in the right-wing Wall Street Journal and then declared the Obama health care plan has collapsed. Which is funny, because it has not even come up for a vote yet, so I guess he is a mind reader now. Billy suddenly cited a Gallup poll released yesterday that says 50% oppose the health care plan, while 44% support it. Which is also funny, because O'Reilly never once mentioned the Gallup polls on the issue, when the majority of Americans supported the plan.
Not to mention, O'Reilly does not say a word about all the misleading ads run by right-wing special interest groups, lobbyists, and the Insurance companies that lied about the details of the plan. It shows that propaganda works, and that after a month of misleading ads they have turned the majority of people against the Obama plan. Obama will give a speech on it tonight, and then we will see if he can change some minds with the actual facts. And of course the FOX broadcasting network does not plan to carry the speech, when all the other networks say they will. Funny how O'Reilly never mentioned that either. Billy predicted the Obama health care plan will fail, before the Obama speech, and before it has even had a vote.
Then he had 2 Democrats on, Jami Floyd and Tara Dowdell. Floyd disagreed with O'Reilly and cited some stats to back her argument up, Billy cut her off and said her stats don't matter. Yes he actually said that, look at the transcript. In O'Reilly world only his stats matter, but if a Democrat has stats they do not matter. Then Dowdell got to speak, she also disagreed with O'Reilly and spoke out for the plan, Billy cut her off too, and told her she was dodging the issue. Billy said Obama has failed to lead, and that everyone is confused about what is in the actual plan.
But he failed to mention that if anyone is confused it's because of all the spin and lies put out about the plan by O'Reilly and his Republican friends. So if there is confusion, it's because of him and his friends, who lied so much about what the plan will do. Floyd tried to get back in the debate and O'Reilly said they are both dodging the issue. Then O'Reilly said he will watch the Obama speech with an open mind and report the facts after the speech, haha, yeah right, give me a break. He just called it a failure, said it has collapsed, and predicted it will fail, and that's having an open mind?
And btw, not once has O'Reilly ever mentioned the quote from Republican Senator DeMint, who said their goal is to break Obama by getting his health care plan defeated, to hurt him politically. DeMint said it would be his waterloo if they could defeat the bill, and it would weaken him politically. So they dont care about health care for Americans, they only care about hurting Obama politically. Yet O'Reilly never said a word about it, and ignored the whole thing.
Then Billy had the lunatic right-wing Factor military analyst Col. Ralph Peters on to talk about the captured U.S. soldier in Afghanistan. And my God is this guy nuts, he was on a FOX show over the weekend and he said the guy deserted his post so the Taliban should just go ahead and kill him, to save us the time and trouble of a court marshall. Hey Col. Dumbass, what happened to innocent until proven guilty, why dont we have a trail before we have him punished, ok Col. How this nut is even allowed on tv is beyond me, he is insane. And yet, he is the Factor military analyst, so what does that say about O'Reilly, that he is as crazy as Peters for putting his crazy ass on the air. I bet if we wanted to have the Taliban kill his son (without a trial) he would have a different story.
Then O'Reilly had the is it legal team on, Lis Wiehl and Megyn Kelly. They talked about the Florida couple that was murdered, and said it was not a hit job. Billy said dont worry, he is gonna get to the bottom of it, and figure it all out, ok Kojak. I guess Billy and Geraldo are gonna solve the crime, haha. From their million dollar tv studio in New York, lol, what a joke. Then they talked about a future nun in ITALY, who had a boyfriend who put her nude pics on the net. Ummmm, Billy, who cares what happens in ITALY, this is America jackass, report on the news here. No-Body cares what happens in FRICKING ITALY, you moron.
Then the big breaking news that everyone has to know about, NOT. Billy reported on the Teen Stripper story from Rhode Island, the one he had been teasing all during the show with video of Strippers. How is this news, and who gives a damn. I could care less if 16 year old girls are legally stripping in Rhode Island. It's legal so shut up, Billy called it shocking. And reporting the story will probably help their business, because guys will rush there to see the Teen girls strip. So O'Reilly just made the situation worse by reporting it, just to get ratings from his perverted viewers. Then a stupid story about a 13 year old boy who weighs 550 lbs, who cares, this is not news, it's tabloid garbage, all of it. Try reporting some real news, this is crap Geraldo should be reporting.
Then O'Reilly had the totally insane right-wing idiot Glenn Beck on, seriously, how in the hell does this nut job have a tv news show, oh I forgot, it's on FOX, so it's not really a news show, it's entertainment for ratings from right-wing nuts who are just as crazy as the people who host the shows. Billy played a video clip of Beck screaming like a lunatic at a woman who called into his radio show. It was like watching a movie, where the guy plays a crazy nut who has a radio show. Except it was for real, and the crazy nut is Glenn Beck.
Beck had a meltdown, he screamed at her over and over to get off his phone, it was scary to watch, in that you dont see normal people doing that. He let out this high pitched scream that sounded like a little girl, it was total insanity. O'Reilly even said Beck is nuts, but then he made a joke about it and laughed it off as if it was nothing. Then Billy said hey Beck what do you think about my TPM and the Obama health care plan, as if anyone cares what that lunatic has to say about political issues. It was madness, from Beck and O'Reilly, I would say it was like watching the Twilight Zone tv show.
After spending 2 minutes showing Beck is a totally insane lunatic, Billy says ok now give us your thoughts on some political issues. I was like wow, is he serious, and he was, then they talked about political issues. Here is my question, if Beck is a right-wing lunatic, which he is, why in the hell should we care what he has to say about anything. Instead of asking him political questions, they should have him in a mental ward on medications. And I am serious, this guy is off his rocker, yet FOX gave him a show, and O'Reilly has him on the Factor every week as a regular. I would not let him handle sharp objects, let alone do a radio and tv show.
At one point during the segment Beck pulled a roll of cookie dough out of his suit pocket and set it on the table. I kid you not, he actually pulled a roll of cookie dough out and said something about it, then made fun of the pillsbury dough boy and said he looks just like him. I do not have any idea why he had the cookie dough, I just know it was insanity. It made no sense at all, and O'Reilly pretty much ignored it and laughed it off. Then entire segment was crazy, and O'Reilly puts this nut job on his show every damn week. If it were not so funny, it would be sad, and if this is news I'm Donald Trump.
Then the stupid (waste of time) Factor Culture Quiz, with dumbass Steve Doocy and the slightly smarter Martha MacCallum. but that's not saying much, because Doocy is dumb as a rock. Then the pinheads and patriots, the pinhead was a giant squid that attacked a scuba diver, I kid you not, he named a giant squid a pinhead.
At least he had 2 Democrats on the show, but they were pretty much unknown, they were barely allowed to talk, and they got one lousy 4 minute segment. Not to mention he also had 7 Republicans on, and that's not counting O'Reilly. So it was still a 98% biased right-wing propaganda show.
The Monday 7-20-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 21, 2009 - 11:50am
The TPM was called Cronkite's Influence. As O'Jackass opened the show he had a photo of Walter Cronkite on the screen, below his photo it said Liberal Influence?
Then O'Reilly started his TPM, he talked about Cronkite, Obama, and the media. Basically O'Reilly said Cronkite was a good journalist in his early years, but later in his career he was a known liberal, then he trashed Obama, and said the liberal media is giving Obama a pass on his health care plan that will bankrupt the country. Which is all ridiculous, and why not just give the man a respectful tribute to a great career in journalism, without adding all the right-wing insults, and the stuff about Obama and the media.
O'Reilly is a disrespectful right-wing piece of shit. Tony Snow was a known partisan right-winger, but you never saw O'Reilly pull this crap after he died from cancer. O'Reilly did a respectful tribute to Snow, and never pulled the partisan crap, or said one negative word about him.
But when Cronkite dies, O'Reilly insults the man by saying he was a liberal journalist with a bias in his later years, and uses his death to trash Obama and the so-called liberal media. O'Reilly also said Cronkite was bitter about being replaced by Dan Rather, and that he did not like him. What kind of garbage is that to report 2 days after the mans death. Then O'Dumbass went on some tirade about Obama bankrupting the country with his health care plan, and how the liberal media is ignoring the story. For one, they ignore that story because there is no story. Obama will not bankrupt the country, because his health care plan will be paid for by a tax on millionaires. The CBO reports it is budget neutral, and will actually have a $6 Billion dollar surplus. More on that later.
Then O'Reilly put the far right partisan Bernie Goldberg on to discuss the Cronkite death, Obama, and the media. And of course no Democrat was on to give the other side, as usual, which is a violation of journalistic standards. Every time you do a political segment, or a segment about media bias, you should have a Democrat and a Republican on to discuss it, or someone to give each side of the story, and O'Reilly rarely ever does that, 9 times out of 10 it's just him and a Republican with no Democrat. So as expected Goldberg agreed with O'Reilly and trashed Cronkite, Obama, and the media. Which is why he is put on alone, to agree with O'Reilly and make it look like he is right.
Here are the facts, Walter Cronkite was a great non-partisan journalist. He was known as the most trusted man in America. His news reports had no bias, none, and he never gave his opinion on anything, except the Vietnam war. But only after he found out it was a bad war, and wrong to do. In his entire journalism career that was the only time he ever gave his opinion on anything. So he was a straight hard news journalist, who had no bias in his reporting. In fact, people who had worked with him for 30 years could not tell you if he was a Democrat or a Republican, nobody knew, which proves he was a non-partisan journalist. And yet these two jerkoffs, O'Reilly and Goldberg trashed him, because later in life (after he retired) he spoke out against Bush, and his Iraq war.
Instead of doing a respectful tribute to his journalism career, O'Reilly trashed Cronkite as a biased liberal, and used his death to attack Obama and the media. Then on top of that, he did a 2nd segment on it with the far right idiot Bernie Goldberg. The two of them spin out this garbage, then agree with each other to make it look like they are telling the truth. When it's just right-wing garbage, passed off as news analysis. And I have one last thing to say about it, I hope you two a-holes rot in hell.
And btw, all during the show, at the start and all during the show, O'Reilly ran video of girls in bikinis washing a car. While he teased the segment on it, and how the make-a-wish foundation refused their donation. Billy sure loved that video, and loved that segment. When it was done to simply get ratings, and had no news value at all.
Then O'Reilly had Juan Williams and Mary K. Ham on to discuss Cronkite, Obama, and the media. And the moron Juan agreed with O'Reilly, he even gave his TPM a 10, which proves once again that Juan is no Democrat, and I do not count him as a Democrat. He is billed as a Democrat to counter what Ham says, then 95% of the time he agrees with O'Reilly and Ham. Billy trashed the Obama health care plan again and said it would bankrupt the country, which is just lies, and of course Juan and Ham agreed with him. The whole segment was a joke, and nothing but one sided right-wing garbage. Juan knows it's garbage, yet he agrees with it anyway, just to kiss O'Reilly's ass and stay on the show. And of course Ham is a joke, she is a clown, a right-wing robot, and she is only on to agree with everything Billy says. That's why he has her on, because he knows she will agree with him on everything.
Then O'Reilly had a segment on going to Mars, with an astronaut Tom Jones. Billy said we can not afford it, even though the NASA budget is only 0.5 percent of Government spending, so it's almost nothing. Tom disagreed with O'Reilly and made some good points as to why we should go to Mars. O'Reilly dismissed them all, and said we can not afford it. So now he is an expert on Mars, not. Like anyone cares if a lame cable news host is opposed to it, they dont.
Then more bikini car wash video. Then a crazy one sided and biased segment on Barbara Boxer and a Black member of the chamber of commerce. Billy had this right-wing nut Harry Alford on to trash Boxer and claim she was a racist. It was just insane, he was at a hearing and Boxer quoted someone who is black, that disagreed with him, and he said she was a racist. Which is just ridiculous, all she did was quote someone from the NAACP who disagreed with him, that's not racism, and it's not even close. Yet stupid O'Reilly put this nut job on the Factor and gave him a whole segment on this nonsense.
Neither Boxer (or anyone) to speak for her was on, which is another violation of journalistic standards. O'Reilly even told the guy what she did was not racism, and he disagreed 100 percent. Proving this Alford is a right-wing nut who just hates Boxer and the Democrats. Later in the segment he admitted he loves Condi Rice and hates people like Boxer. At the end of the segment Billy thanked him and said he respects him. Of course he does, because he is a Republican who trashed Boxer for being a racist, even when those charges are ridiculous, O'Reilly still praised the nut, and told him how much he respects him. O'Reilly also said Alford really put the smackdown on Boxer, when that is not true, he only made a fool of himself with the insane charges of racism. Quoting a black man from the NAACP is not racism, ever.
Then more bikini car wash video. Then O'Reilly had the culture warriors on to discuss the bikini car wash charity donation being refused. He had Margaret Hoover and Juliet Huddy on to discuss it. Huddy said there was nothing wrong with it and they should take the money, Hoover said it was wrong and they should not take the money. This is ridiculous, it was a fricking bikini car wash, they were in bikinis, not naked, or doing porn, it was a simple car wash. You see girls in bikinis on every beach in the country, every day.
Then the total garbage reality check segment, the pinheads and patriots, and the lame e-mails. Billy had a great fair and balanced show, wrong. He had 6 Republicans and 0 Democrats, and the entire show was nothing but 100% right-wing spin and propaganda, with no liberal or Democrat in any segment to give the other side of the story.
O'Reilly Caught Lying About Obama Health Care Plan
By: Steve - July 21, 2009 - 11:30am
On the Monday O'Reilly Factor Billy said over and over that the Obama health care plan will bankrupt the country. In segment after segment Billy declared that Obama is going to bankrupt the country with his health care plan, he must have said it 4 or 5 times during the show, in almost every segment.
And it's all lies, it's basically the GOP talking points word for word. Republican Senator DeMint even let their plan slip out, he admitted they do not care about health care for the American people, he just wants to defeat the Obama health care plan to break him, and gain a political victory. He said if they can defeat it then it will be the Obama waterloo, and it will break him. And good old Bill O'Reilly is right with DeMint and the Republican, lying about the plan to get the people to oppose it.
Billy likes to say he is looking out for the folks, if that is true, why does he ignore the facts, and spew out the GOP talking points lies. Here are the facts, right from the CBO, the same CBO O'Reilly and Ham quoted last night as a valid and non-partisan source. What's funny though, is they ignored this report, because it debunks their lies about the Obama health care plan. Not only will the Obama plan not bankrupt the country, it actually saves the Government money, it's and gives health care to almost all Americans.
The CBO report says the Obama health care plan is deficit neutral over the 10-year budget window -- and even produces a $6 billion surplus. That is right from the CBO report, the very report O'Reilly and Ham ignored, while quoting some OLD CBO numbers. Now that's bias, and dishonesty, from O'Reilly and Ham. And stupid Juan Williams sat there and let them lie their ass off about the numbers, without saying a word to dispute them. Here are the facts, read them, and then remember how biased and dishonest O'Reilly and Ham are.
For Immediate Release:Read that again, The Obama health care plan is deficit neutral, and actually produces a $6 Billion dollar surplus. And yet O'Reilly spent the whole fricking show saying it would bankrupt the country, when it actually saves the country $6 Billion dollars, while at the same time providing health care to 97% of all Americans.
July 17, 2009
CBO Scores Confirms Deficit Neutrality of Health Reform Bill
Washington, D.C. -- The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released estimates this evening confirming for the first time that H.R. 3200, America's Affordable Health Choices Act, is deficit neutral over the 10-year budget window – and even produces a $6 billion surplus. CBO estimated more than $550 billion in gross Medicare and Medicaid savings. More importantly, the bill includes a comprehensive array of delivery reforms to set the stage for lowering the future growth in health care costs.
Net Medicare and Medicaid savings of $465 billion, coupled with the $583 billion revenue package reported today by the House Committee on Ways and Means, fully finance the previously estimated $1.042 trillion cost of reform, which will provide affordable health care coverage for 97% of Americans.
"This fulfills the strong commitment of the President and House leadership to enact health reform on a deficit-neutral basis," said Chairman Henry A. Waxman, Chairman Charles B. Rangel, and Chairman George Miller.
"The reforms included in this legislation will help control health care costs and expand access to quality, affordable coverage to all Americans in a fiscally-responsible manner."
That is proof that O'Reilly is nothing but a lying right-wing idiot, who does not give a damn about the folks. He is just a right-wing hack, who spews out the GOP/Insurance Company spin and lies about the Obama health care plan. Here is the proof, right there in black and white. An honest journalist would report the truth, that it's budget neutral and actually produces a surplus. O'Reilly is not an honest journalist, so he lies and spins it for the GOP, and has all Republican guests on to agree with him.
That was done so that no Democrat can speak the truth, not one Democrat was on the Factor to report the CBO numbers, and of course O'Reilly never said a word about them. He cant, because it would destroy his right-wing spin on the Obama health care plan. Basically he ignored the facts, to smear Obama and trash his plan, because he is a right-wing idiot, and a dishonest journalist. And even calling him a journalist is an insult to real journalists.
Republican Dishonesty is Stunning
By: Steve - July 19, 2009 - 9:30am
O'Reilly and all his Republican friends are so dishonest when talking about the economy, the deficit, and the national debt it's stunning. And not only are they dishonest, they are confused between the national debt, and the budget deficit. They claim Obama has almost bankrupted the country with his $10 Trillion deficit. O'Reilly has made the claim too, he says Obama is going to bankrupt the country.
Okay now read this, all of that is nothing but Republican lies and spin, from O'Reilly and all his right-wing friends. Here is an example of their lies and spin. Last Friday RNC Chairman Michael Steele was on FOX, and he confused the national debt with the budget deficit, then he said it was all done by Obama.
Steele went into a rambling answer to a question to assert that, in only six months, President Obama has added "10 trillion dollars" to the national deficit, while President Bush is to blame for only "1 trillion" of it:
STEELE: They love going back to George Bush and his deficit that was inherited. Great. I'll take George Bush's deficit right now of a trillion dollars over the 10 trillion dollars that this administration has created in just six months.
Fact: Steele lied his right-wing ass off, and nothing he said was true. Lie #1) Bush never inherited a deficit from Bill Clinton. Bush inherited a budget surplus of $128 billion. And budget experts projected a $710 billion surplus for 2009. But the deficit soon exploded, thanks to the $1.2 Trillion dollar Bush tax cuts, which accounted for 42% of the deficit. When Bush left office, he handed President Obama a projected $1.2 trillion budget deficit for this year, the largest ever.
As for the $10 Trillion debt Steele claims Obama created, when President Bush took office, the national debt was $5.73 trillion. When he left, it was $10.7 trillion. The Obama administration has only added $1 Triilion to the national debt, the other $10 Trillion was added by the Bush administration.
Steele also confused the difference between our national debt, which stands at $11.4 trillion, and this year's budget deficit, which just exceeded $1 trillion. So he's either stupid, or lying to make Obama look bad. Either way is bad, if he's that stupid he should not be the Chairman of the GOP, and if he's lying on purpose he should be fired for his dishonesty.
Here are a couple more facts. Obama's main contribution to the deficit is his extension of several Bush policies, like the Iraq war and tax cuts for households making less than $250,000. Such policies, together with the Wall Street bailout, which was signed by Bush, account for 20 percent of the swing.
About 7 percent comes from the stimulus bill that Obama signed in February. And only 3 percent comes from Obama's agenda on health care, education, energy and other areas. So here are the facts, Bush added the $10 Trillion, not Obama. Bush inherited a budget surplus, then took a $5.7 Trillion national debt, and made it $10 Trillion. And Obama had nothing to do with any of that, it was all done by Bush from 2001 until 2009.
Obama has been the president for 6 months, in that time he passed a $770 Billion stimulus bill, but it's a 2 year plan and only about 20% of it has even been spent. So the $1 Trillion deficit was mostly created by the Bush administration, because almost none of what Obama has done is counted yet in the current deficit.
Yet O'Reilly and all his right-wing friends are blaming it all on Obama, when he had almost nothing to do with any of it, Bush did it all, and they are trying to dishonestly make it look like Obama caused it. When the non-partisan CBO report says Obama has only added 10% to the deficit and the national debt. The other 90% was caused by Bush, and that is a fact.
And think about this, if they will lie about all that, when it's so easy to prove they lied, how can you believe anything they say about the Obama health care plan, Cap & Trade, or anything Obama plans to do. You cant, because they are liars who are lying to you.
The Friday 7-17-09 O'Reilly/Ingraham Factor Review
By: Steve - July 18, 2009 - 12:30pm
The TPM was called Racial Politics. The far right (nasal nose voice) right-wing nut Laura Ingraham was in for Billy, I guess he takes every friday off now, and of course his fill in is a far right partisan, just like he is. Yet he claims to be an Independent with a no spin zone, when his fill in host is a far right Ann Coulter wannabe. Ingraham even opened the show with the caution you are about to enter the no spin zone garbage. When you know she is a right-wing partisan who does nothing but put out GOP spin. So she lied right to your face before the show even started.
Ingraham started the show trashing Obama, as she always does. That's what partisan and biased Republicans do, even if a Democrat does something good, they still spin it to make them look bad. Okay get this, Ingraham said Obama was using race in politics, how you ask, by giving a speech to the NAACP. Let me get this straight, if a black man gives a speech to a black group, somehow that's using race in politics. Which is just insane, and proof that Ingraham is just a right-wing moron that will do anything to make Obama look bad. Her argument was ridiculous, she claimed that because Obama spoke like a preacher to the NAACP that he was using race in politics. And she said the Obama preacher accent was weird, maybe to her, not to anyone else, and who cares what accent he used.
It's so ridiculous I barely know what to say about it. To begin with, how is talking like a preacher to a black group injecting race into politics. It's not a political speech on tv to the entire country, and it was not a speech that was meant to be seen by the general public. In fact, I would not have seen or heard any of the speech, if Ingraham had not shown part of the video from it on the Factor. Nobody saw it, so how can it be injecting race into politics if nobody saw it but the blacks who were at the speech. It was just crazy, and this is the garbage she picked to talk about on the #1 rated news show on cable.
I mean, who cares, I sure dont, and it's not even news. Ingraham said Obama was using race, when it's the Republicans who play the race card. They tried to make people be scared of the black man (Obama) before the election, that's using race in politics. The Republicans play the race card, not Obama or the Democrats. In fact, O'Reilly even admitted that Obama did not play the race card, and yet, here is Ingraham saying he did. Republicans play the race card, they try to make people scared of blacks and latinos, so people will not vote for them, which is what they did to Obama before the election, and what they are doing to Sotomayor now. Yet crazy Ingraham claims Obama and the Democrats play the race card, which is just insanity.
Then she had another Obama trashing segment. Ingraham had a Republican from the Heritage Foundation on, and some unknown Democratic spokeswoman. Ingraham and the right-wing spin doctor trashed Obama, the guy said Obama's economic plan has failed. When things are slowly getting better, and Obama has only been the president for 6 months. Not to mention, it took Bush 8 years to ruin the economy, so you cant expect to fix it in 6 months. Especially when it was worse than Bush said it was. Obama has a 2 year plan to get the economy turned around, yet these 2 right-wing idiots declare it a failure after only 6 months into a 2 year plan.
That my friends is what you call partisan right-wing bias, and nonsense. If a Republican were president and he had the 2 year plan, they would be defending it and saying you are an idiot to declare a 2 year plan a failure after 6 months. But since it's a Democrat president they have already declared it a failure. When the only failure here is their brains. And if after 2 years the economy has not turned around I will admit it's a failure. But you can not call a 2 year plan a failure after 6 months, unless you are a partisan and dishonest moron, like Ingraham and her right-wing guest were last night.
Let's not forget this is still the Bush economy Obama is trying to fix. O'Reilly even said you have to give Obama a year, and that year is not up until January 20, 2010. Which is also a little ridiculous because the Obama economic plan is 2 years. But after a year things should be starting to get better, 6 months is too soon to judge his plan. So Ingraham is just an idiot, and O'Reilly ha her fill in for him to do unjustified non-stop smear attacks on Obama.
Then the Factor was stopped for breaking news, Walter Cronkite died. And the rest of the time was FOX News stooges talking about Mr. Cronkite, and pretending they liked him. When we all know they hated him, yet they pretend to like him and say good things about him. O'Reilly has been trashing him for a couple years now, and Monday he will probably also pretend he liked him and say good things about him.
I'm sorry to hear Mr. Cronkite died, and I hope he can rest in peace. But at least we did not have to listen to nasal nose anymore. Ingraham was gonna cry about Jesse Ventura saying he would never vote for Palin for president or anything, because he was afraid she would quit on him. She was going to use a national news show to cry about something crazy Jesse Venture said. And they call this news, haha.
The Thursday 7-16-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 17, 2009 - 1:10pm
The TPM was called, Health Care Bill: Con or Great Thing? Billy is now calling the Obama health care plan a con, as he did on Cap & Trade, which is exactly what other Republicans like Newt Gingrich or Karl Rove are saying. O'Reilly is basically spewing out the GOP talking points, as if he were a Republican member of Congress. But he claims to be an Independent, yet he talks just like Newt Gingrich. So he has no credibility on these issues, because it's clear he is a partisan Republican with an agenda.
Billy said Obama plans to pay for it by adding a 5% tax on people making over $280,000 a year, and said it would take their tax rate to 45%, and that could bankrupt the country, which is a lie. The top tax rate is 36%, if you add 5% you get 41%, not the 45% O'Reilly claims, so he cant even do math. Not to mention, back in the 70's and 80's the federal tax rate was as high as 70% on people making over $250,000 a year, and the country did not go bankrupt then. It's all right-wing BS from O'Reilly and his Republican friends.
Back in 1993 Bill Clinton raised taxes on the wealthy by 3% and every Republican in America said the sky would fall, and the economy would crash. Guess what, they were all wrong. The economy boomed, and we had the best 8 years ever. Over 20 million news job were created and Bill Clintons tax increase on the wealthy worked. Now O'Reilly and his idiotic right-wing friends are saying the same thing about the Obama plans. If you believe them you are stupid, because they are partisan Republicans who are lying to you.
Then O'Reilly had another partisan right-wing idiot on to discuss it. Laura Ingraham was on all alone to agree with O'Reilly and spin out more GOP talking points. And if you listen to anything they say about it you need mental help. they are both wealthy and they are both opposed to it for political reasons, because they are both Republicans and they hate paying taxes that will help the poor. They dont care about getting health care to every American, all they care about is paying less in taxes so they can get richer. So they spew out the GOP/Insurance company talking points to fool the people into opposing it.
Notice who is opposed to it, Republicans and the Insurance companies. That alone tells you all you need to know. Then O'Reilly pulled his famous poll cherry picking trick, he reported a poll from the biased Rasmussen and claimed the Obama approval numbers are crashing. He used a poll from Rasmussen that shows a big drop to 51% approval, but he failed to mention the drop only happened because Republicans rated Obama lower in the poll. With the rest of America Obama has barely dropped at all, it's only the Republicans who rate him lower, and the Gallup poll has Obama at 58% approval, which is only a 3% drop from the 61% he was at in June. So the Rasmussen poll is biased garbage, yet O'Reilly used it anyway, and only used it to smear Obama.
A real journalist would have also reported the Gallup numbers, instead O'Reilly dishonestly uses one poll done by a biased Republican to make Obama look bad. Billy cited the bogus Rasmussen poll to say most Americans oppose the Obama health care plan. Whie ignoring the fact that a July 14th USA Today/Gallup poll (taken 3 days ago) says that 56% of Americans are in favor and 33% opposed to Congress passing major healthcare reform this year. And that support for healthcare reform is sharply split along party lines, with 79% of Democrats in favor, compared with only 23% of Republicans. O'Reilly never reported any of that, he just reported the biased poll from Rasmussen, then claimed it represents the views of all Americans. When the Gallup poll says the majority of Americans support the Obama health care plan. It's called dishonest journalism, from O'Reilly.
Then O'Reilly the king of hypocrisy did another segment on Michael Jackson, he had Geraldo on to do an entire segment on Michael Jackson, and the possibility of his doctor being charged in his death. O'Reilly spent a week crying about too much Michael Jackson reporting by the media, then he reports it every fricking night, what a giant hypocrite. I guess it gets good ratings, so the ratings whore does whatever it takes to get those ratings.
The next garbage segment was the body language bimbo, and I refuse to report this crap, it's not news, and has no news value at all. It's just done for O'Reilly 80 year old viewers to see another blone bimbo on the show, and the whole segment is worthless. She talked about Sotomayor and Michael Jacksons father, and it's all mumbo jumbo garbage.
Then O'Reilly had Megyn Kelly on to discuss some legal cases, and of course no Democrat on with her. They talked about the New Haven firefighter case and trashed Sotomayor some more, then they both admitted she will be confirmed easily. The woman was a judge for 17 years and all they have is one questionable ruling, which aint bad, yet they hammer her over one bad ruling. Not to mention the other 2 Repubicans on the court ruled the same way she did, and neither O'Reilly or Kelly ever mention that. They act like she was the only one who ruled that way, when it was a 3 to 0 ruling with the other 2 Republican judges ruling with her. They also talked about a 66 year old woman having 2 kids by invitro fertilization, then she dies 3 years later. Billy said it was an outrage, and 66 is too old to have birth. Here is my question, who made him God, I thought it was a free country, what say you Billy?
Then the stupid reality check garbage, where Billy reports a story and then does what he claims is a reality check. When it's just more right-wing spin put out by a Republican, with no Democrat there to counter it or question any of what is said. And of course all the so-called rality checks smear Democrats, he never does any reality checks on Republicans.
One check was totally insane, Billy reported that Illinois Senator Dick Durbin (my Senator btw) said white male judges such as Samuel Alito and John Roberts do not understand the plight of minorities. They are wealthy white Republican judges, they dont understand what it's like to be a poor minority, and dont care either, so Durbin was exactly right. The O'Reilly reality check on that was that Durbin made a racist statement. Billy said this:
At the Sotomayor hearings, Senator Dick Durbin claimed that white male judges such as Samuel Alito and John Roberts "can not understand the plight of minorities" because it is not in their DNA.Ummmmmm, huh? That's not racism you idiot, it's the truth, and there is no racism there at all. He was just saying most white Republican judges are wealthy and they can not understand what it's like to be a poor minority, to even find racism in that statement is just insane, especially when it's 100% true. Then patriots and pinheads, Billy named Spongebob Squarepants the patriot, huh? Then the lame Factor e-mails and that non-stop one sided and biased right-wing garbage of a show was finally over, lol.
The Factor's Check: "Does that not sound like a racial statement? White men can't understand the minority experience? Way to go, Dick Durbin."
The Wednesday 7-15-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 16, 2009 - 10:10am
The Insane TPM was called Evil White Men. O'Reilly went nuts over an article called White Man's Last Stand, written by Maureen Dowd in the NY Times. The article was about white Republican men trying to smear a Latino judge to keep her off the Supreme Court, because they want to keep the Court stacked with white men, and it was 100% accurate. Somehow O'Reilly twisted the meaning of her article into, if you criticize a black or a mexican you are a racist bigot. It was insane, and I think it's time for O'Reilly to retire, or get some mental help.
The Dowd article was 100% true, go read it for yourself, and yet O'Reilly ripped her to pieces and claimed she was out of control, and that she wants to get rid of all white men from everything. Which is just pure insanity, all she did was criticize the Republicans who smeared Sotomayor to try and keep her off the Court. That's not calling for all white men to be removed from everything, and it's not even close. I have never seen O'Reilly spin an article more than he did with the Dowd article, it was just crazy. O'Reilly implied that all liberals want to get rid of all white men from everything, based on that one article by Dowd, even though she only criticized white Republican men for smearing Sotomayor, and never said a word about any other white men.
Then the nut had Alan Colmes and Monica Crowley on to discuss his insanity, and the Dowd article. Colmes instantly nailed O'Reilly for his hypocrisy, he said you just demonized all the liberals for saying they want to get rid of all white men, based on one article in the NY Times. Billy got mad and tried to talk over him and made a joke, so you know he was nailed. Saying that is like saying all Republicans cheat on their wife because one of them did, it's just crazy, and doing the same thing O'Reilly complains about other people doing. And of course crazy Crowley agreed with the O'Reilly insanity 100 percent.
Then Billy had more right-wing spin and lies about the Obama Cap & Trade plan, and notice that he has not had one Democrat on to discuss it, only Republicans. This is done to keep them from debunking all his right-wing spin on it. Just read my blog posting from yesterday, for the real facts on Cap & Trade, what you get from O'Reilly on it is the GOP talking points. Billy had Tobin Smith and Terry Keenan on from FOX News to discuss it. They trashed Obama and the plan, as the good little Republicans they are. It was nothing but one sided biased garbage, with 3 Republicans sitting around spewing out the GOP talking points like robots.
Okay now get this, O'Reilly had another segment on Michael Jackson. This is the guy who spent a week making racist comments about him, and crying about the media covering the story too much. Billy called the coverage bizarre, and said he was fed up with all the Michael Jackson reporting. Then he keeps doing segments on the story he claims to be fed up with, my God he is the king of hypocrisy. Earth to O'Jackass, if it's bizarre to cover it, and you are fed up with it, why in the hell do you keep doing stories about it. Answer that dumbass. Billy did an entire segment about Michael Jackson and how it might be ruled a murder, and he had Harvey Levin from TMZ on to discuss it.
Then O'Reilly had a segment on the wealthy Florida couple that was killed by 8 men. He had a Republican radio guy on to discuss it, T.J. Hart, and of course no Democrat, even though it was not a political segment, he still had only a Republican on. And, there was not much to it, and nothing was reported that we do not already know, so it was pretty much a waste of tv time reporting news we already know. The media reported this story all day, and O'Reilly did not add anything new, so why even do it, except for ratings I guess.
Next we had the great Dennis Miller, back from vacation, or whatever he was doing. And wow was it lame, even worse than usual. All he did was make some lame and unfunny jokes about the recent political news, and of course all his jokes made fun of liberals. What's funny is last week O'Reilly cried like a baby about liberal comedians making jokes about Republicans, mostly Palin, he said enough is enough, and it's time to stop the jokes about her. Billy was outraged that these liberal comedians were doing jokes about Palin. Then the massive hypocrite has Dennis Miller on his show to do jokes about liberals, can you be any more of a hypocrite, I dont think so.
And on top of that, I saw Conan and Letterman doing jokes about Sotomayor, Obama, Biden, etc. But I never heard one fricking word from O'Reilly crying about that. So he has no problem with them when they do jokes about Democrats and liberals, but when they do a joke about the love of his life Sarah (dumb as a rock) Palin, suddenly it's an outrage, he says enough is enough, and it must be stopped. O'Reilly is the king of hypocrisy, he does everything he complains about. Then he crys about jokes by comedians, but only when they do jokes about Republicans, or someone he likes. My God the man is the biggest hypocrite in the country.
Then O'Reilly had possibly the dumbest segment he has ever done, he had Neil Sean on from ENGLAND. The segment was about a sex ed program in ENGLAND. Earth to O'Reilly, who cares what they do in ENGLAND. And why should I care about a sex ed program in fricking ENGLAND, guess what, I dont. What does that have to do with anything that happens here in America, nothing, so why are you reporting on this nonsense. Get a clue man, this is garbage, and nobody in America cares about it. Try to remember you said you have a hard news show, and do some actual news for a change, and news about America, not fricking ENGLAND, you moron.
Then the pinheads and patriots and the edited hand picked e-mails. Only one Democrat was on the entire show, and that Democrat was Alan Colmes. the rest of it was all right-wing propaganda and spin by O'Reilly and his Republican friends. The worst of it was now O'Reilly has covered Cap & Trade two times and only had Republicans on to discuss it, he has not had one Democrat on to give the other side of the story.
Which is a violation of journalistic standards, the standards O'Reilly calls for other journalists to follow, and then he violates them every night. Which is just more hypocrisy, from the king of hypocrisy.
O'Reilly Poll Cherry Picking Tactics
By: Steve - July 15, 2009 - 9:10am
One night last week O'Reilly had a segment on Sarah Palin where he reported the results from a poll on her, he said it showed she was still as popular as ever, and that roughly 80% of Republicans still like her, even after she resigned as Governor of Alaska.
On July 9th, a USA Today/Gallup poll found that Sarah Palin's announcement that she is resigning as Alaska governor boosted her numbers a little among Republicans. According to the poll, 66% of Republicans want Palin to be a major national political figure in the future, while 75% of Democrats hope she won't be.
O'Reilly did an entire segment on this poll, during the segment O'Reilly promoted her as a potential candidate for president in 2012. He had nothing but good things to say about her, and he even said he has no problem with her resigning, or anything she ever did. Bascially O'Reilly loves her, because she is a far right nut who supports every issue he does. So he did a segment on that poll to promote her and make her look good.
Now I have no problem with reporting polls, as long as you report all the polls, not just the polls you like, and the polls that make the person you like look good, as O'Reilly does. He only reports the polls that he likes, that make people he like look good, it's called cherry picking. Then if a poll comes out he dont like, it never gets reported by O'Reilly.
Two days ago on July 13th a CBS News poll came out, but O'Reilly totally ignored this poll, because it is not good for Palin, and it makes her look bad. This poll was not reported by O'Reilly, and there was no segment to talk about it. Billy just ignored it like it never came out.
Here are some results from the poll:
The poll asked if Palin has the ability to be an effective president; 65 percent said no, 22 percent said yes, and 13 percent were undecided. Even 51 percent of Republicans said no.
This is what O'Reilly does, the so-called journalist and truth teller with a no spin zone. He cherry picks polls to make the people he likes look good, then ignores any poll that makes them look bad. And the people he likes are always Republicans, he never does that to a Democrat. When he reports on a Democrat he uses the biased and bogus Rasmussen poll to make them look bad.
And O'Reilly normally ignores the Gallup polls, because they give Obama high numbers on his job approval. When he reports on Obama's poll numbers he uses the Rasmussen poll, which always has Obama rated lower because it's a biased Republican poll. Then a Gallup poll comes out on Palin, and suddenly O'Reilly is doing an entire segment on it to use the Gallup poll.
It's right-wing bias, hypocrisy, and a double standard. And remember this, when O'Reilly reports on a poll, and only reports what that one poll said, there are probably one or more other polls that say the exact opposite, yet O'Reilly will ignore all the other polls, to cherry pick the one poll he likes, and the one poll that makes someone he likes look good.
I have seen 9 polls come out, 8 had one result, and 1 had a different result, the 1 poll was favorable to a Republican, the other 8 were not. And guess what, O'Reilly cherry picked the 1 poll that was favorable to the Republican, and ignored the other 8 that were not. Then he went on national tv and reported the 1 cherry picked poll, and claimed it represents the feelings of all Americans.
That's bias, and dishonesty, and O'Reilly does it all the time, while he claims to be a real journalist who tells you the truth.
The Tuesday 7-14-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 15, 2009 - 9:00am
The TPM was called Cap & Trade Con. Billy said the Obama cap and trade plan is a con on the American people. O'Reilly went through a laundry list of things that he says will happen. Like higher energy prices for the average American, and how it is just a con to make GE, Goldman Sachs, and Al Gore a ton of money. All of that is garbage, and nothing but right-wing talking points. Billy did a great job lying about it, and parroted the GOP talking points on it almost word for word.
Here are the facts on Cap & Trade, none of which O'Reilly reported.
-- Investments in a clean-energy economy will generate major employment benefits for the entire U.S. economy. Spending just $150 billion on clean-energy investments would create about 1.7 million jobs. O'Reilly never said a word about that.Basically O'Reilly spewed out the GOP talking points word for word, that are all lies. He said it's a bad plan because it will cost people more money, and because Gore and GE will make a profit on the plan. It's all lies put out by the Republicans and the gas and oil companies. They send their million dollar a year lobbyists to lobby against it, and stooges like O'Reilly and all his right-wing friends in Congress spin out the lies to drum up public opposition to the plan. then O'Reilly predicted it will not pass, I predict it will, and we will see who is right.
-- Every Single State in The Country Will Gain Jobs From An Investment In Clean Energy Technologies. O'Reilly never said a word about that.
-- Investment in Clean Energy Technology Creates Four Times As Many Jobs As An Investment In Oil & Gas. O'Reilly never said a word about that.
-- Across America, factories and abandoned plants have been re-tooled and re-opened to satisfy the growing demand for new energy technologies. Once hopeless manufacturing plants in Pennsylvania, Iowa, and Michigan have re-energized their communities by creating jobs in the new energy field. O'Reilly never said a word about that.
-- Cap & Trade Will Only Cost The Average Family $175 a year, in 2020! That's 11 years from now folks. O'Reilly said it will cost the average American a lot of money, yeah, $175 a year, 11 years from now in 2020. O'Reilly never said a word about that.
-- Cap & Trade Would DECREASE Energy Prices For Low-Income Americans. In it's analysis, the Congressional Budget Office wrote, "households in the lowest income brackett would see an average net benefit of about $40 in 2020. Which is the exact opposite of what O'Reilly reported last night, so in other words, he lied his ass off about the Obama Cap & Trade plan.
Then O'Reilly had two Republican idiots on to agree with him, no Democratitic guest, just Stuart Varney and Cheryl Casone from FOX News were on. And of course they agreed with every word O'Reilly said, especially Varney, he is a total right-wing idiot. Casone disagreed with O'Reilly on one thing, she thinks Cap & Trade will pass, other than that, they all agreed on everything. This is what O'Reilly calls a fair and balanced debate, have two Republicans on that agree with you. Before it ended O'Reilly called it a huge con, and said it will not pass, remember that folks.
Then two more Republicans were put on to talk about the Sotomayor hearing, Megyn Kelly and Lis Wiehl. Wiehl gave her an A- and Kelly said she did not do that well, but would not give her a grade. Then they all agreed she would easily be confirmed, so why even do the segment, it's old news and boring. And speaking of boring, O'Reilly said the hearing bored him to tears. But when they had the hearing on Bush nominations O'Reilly did not say that bored him to tears. Which just shows his right-wing bias, once again.
Then the far right (totally biased) Bernie Goldberg was on to talk about a Newsweek article about Sarah Palin. My God, who cares, and what good does it do to cry about an article in Newsweek. They could care less that you two right-wing idiots have a problem with their reporting, so you can cry about it until you are blue in the face and nothing is going to change. This whole segment was just a giant waste of tv time. Billy and Bernie cried about the big bad meanies at Newsweek writing a negative article about their hero Sarah (dumb as rocks) Palin. They said she was stupid, and not qualified to be the president, which is 100% accurate, so where did they get it wrong.
Billy said his main problem with it, was the fact that they did not disclose the guy who wrote the article was a partisan opinion writer, that does not work for Newsweek. Which is just laughable, O'Reilly puts Republican after Republican on his show every fricking night, and he almost never discloses that they are partisan Republicans. So he is mad that they did something he does himself, haha, what a fricking hypocrite. Not to mention, the article was accurate, because Palin is a moron that is not qualified to be the president, maybe moose killer, but not president. Billy and Bernie are just mad that Newsweek had the balls to write an article telling the truth about her dumbass.
And what's really funny is, O'Reilly predicted it's over for Newsweek, and that one article on Palin would cause them to go out of business. Even though it was accurate, and they just reported the truth. Not to mention, if it's a liberal magazine as they claim, why would their liberal readers cancel their subscription over an article negative to Palin, dumbass. And these two right-wing idiots crying about bias at another news outlet, is like Paris Hilton crying about girls having too much sex, lol.
Then O'Reilly had another segment on a more legal cases, so he had Kelly and Wiehl back on for a 2nd segment. They talked about the home invasion case where the wealthy parents were killed, and a boob job lawsuit by a hot model. And Billy loved that one, he even said the case really amused him and he would have follow up segments on it. All the time they were talking about it they ran video of her in her underwear half naked. Her name is Monica Hansen and she is Miss Norway. She filed a lawsuit against her boob job doctor, and Billy sure loves that legal case, lol.
Then the far right nut job Glenn Beck was on. Billy played a video clip of Beck talking some insanity about clowns taking their big clown shoes off and beating people with them. I have no idea what Beck was talking about, and I doubt he does either. The man is truly insane, and yet FOX News gives this lunatic a tv show. He should be locked up in a mental institution, not on a so-called news network doing a so-called news show. Then they both trashed Obama and his Cap & Trade plan, Billy called it a con, and Beck agreed. Beck also said global warming is a hoax, and even O'Reilly said he was wrong about that, Beck said he is right, and that he has not seen any evidence to prove otherwise, wow is he nuts.
Then Billy had two more Republicans on to take the stupid and total waste of tv time culture quiz. Steve Doocy and Martha MacCallum were on, and I could care less, haha. This is not news and has no news value at all. It's garbage to get ratings, and nothing more. Then the pinheads and patriots and the bogus Factor e-mails. And btw, not one Democrat was on the whole show, Billy had 6 Republicans and 0 Democrats on.
The Monday 7-13-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 14, 2009 - 9:45am
The TPM was called Race And The Supreme Court. Billy talked about Sotomayor and said she will be confirmed, but he also said he does have a problem with her because of her white firefighter case ruling. What O'Reilly failed to mention is that she was on an appeals court when she made that ruling, the ruling was 3 to 0, her and the other 2 judges (who were Republican btw) all voted to uphold the lower courts ruling. It was not an actual court ruling, it was upholding a lower courts ruling.
And when the U.S. Supreme Court got the case, it was barely overturned 5 to 4. So it was clearly a close call, yet O'Jackass and all his right-wing friends smear her for one appeals court ruling she made. When the other 2 Republican judges ruled the same way she did, and the U.S. Supreme Court was 1 vote from upholding her ruling. Which in O'Reilly world is being a bad judge, but only if you are a Democrat, if she were a Republican O'Reilly would have no problem with that one ruling. As expected Billy put a right-wing spin on her rulings, just to make her look bad, as he does with all Democrats, because he is a Republican that disagrees with them on 99% of the issues.
Then O'Reilly had an Independent political analyst on to discuss it, haha WRONG. The biased jerkoff had Karl Rove on to discuss it. Without even watching the segment you know what Karl Rove had to say about Sotomayor. He hates her, and he agreed with everything O'Reilly said about her. Rove trashed her and said she is a liberal who is going to make liberal rulings, so she should not be a Supreme Court judge. What's funny is when Bush nominated far right judges Rove did not have the same problem, he's biased, and a hypocrite. Which is why O'Reilly uses him, because he's just like Billy, a biased right-wing hypocrite.
Then they talked about the Cheney CIA story, and wow did Billy and Rove put some massive right-wing spin on the story, to defend Cheney. The CIA withheld information about a secret counter-terrorism program from Congress for eight years on orders from former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney. And yet O'Reilly said it was nothing, and tried to argue that because the program was never operational it was ok. Which is just ridiculous, Cheney told the CIA to keep it a secret from the Congress, and Billy says that is ok. When it's a violation of the National Security Act. If Cheney was a Democrat O'Reilly would call for the feds to investigate, and do a 10 part Factor investigation on it, but when Cheney does it he calls it nothing.
Then O'Reilly had Juan Williams and Mary K. Ham on to discuss Sotomayor and the Cheney CIA story. Juan said he would vote yes for her, but he did have some concern about her, which is pretty much exactly what O'Reilly said about her. And of course the far right nut job Mary K. Ham hates her and would vote no. Then they moved on the the Cheney CIA story, O'Reilly said it was bogus and nothing but a trumped up story, and that if it was a valid story he would have reported it. Yeah right, just like he reported the John Ensign story, as in, never said a word about it. O'Reilly is dismissing it, and ignoring it, because it's about a Republican, his hero Dick Cheney.
O'Reilly even lied about the law on it to defend his buddy Dick Cheney. Billy told Williams and Ham that they (the Bush administration) did not have to tell Congress about intelligence programs that were not active, when that is a flat out lie, so much for the facts and nothing but the facts in the no spin zone. U.S. law requires the president to make sure intelligence committees are kept fully informed of intelligence activities, including any significant anticipated intelligence activity. As usual O'Reilly lied to defend a Republican, and when it's a Democrat he lies to make them look bad.
Then O'Reilly had the right-wing Amanda Carpenter on for his internet cop segment, with no Democrat of course. They cried about an internet ad that a liberal hispanic group put out supporting Sotomayor. In the ad they mention Limbaugh and how Republicans called her a racist, then O'Reilly and Carpenter trashed the ad and linked it to moveon.org. Billy defended Limbaugh, as he always does, and said there was no racism from anyone on the right. I guess he forgot about all the Republicans who called her a racist. And all the racist comments made about her, just like he did not admit the racism against Michael Jackson. O'Reilly denies all this racism, because he is a partisan fraud. It's racism, he just will not admit it. And O'Reilly also makes some of those racist comments so he will never admit it.
Notice that O'Reilly ignores all the racism from the right against black people, and people of color, then he denies it's there, because he ignored it. I could show you 10 different racist cartoons, t-shirts, cereal boxes, photos, bumper stickers, protest signs, etc. that show racism from right-wingers against black people and Mexicans, including president Obama, and O'Reilly has ignored it all. Then he claims there is no racism from anyone on the right, when it's everywhere, he just refuses to report it. And this is called the fair and balanced no spin zone, when it's just a joke, and should not even be called a news show.
Then Billy had a segment with some right-wing nut in California who wants to put a vote on the ballot to cut funding for illegal immigrants and poor people, even if they are legal. His name is Tony Dolz, and of course there was no Democrat on to give the counterpoint. It was just ridiculous and a waste of tv time to even do it. O'Reilly even told the guy it would probably not pass.
Then O'Reilly had the 2 Republican culture warriors on, Hoover and Carlson. They spent the entire segment crying about the attacks On Sarah Palin. Earth to idiots, this is not news, and has no news value at all. Not to mention, nobody cares about the attacks on Palin but right-wing idiots like you. And it does no good to cry about it, because nobody is going to stop attacking her because you right-wing morons dont like it.
Palin is a stupid far right moron, and the only people who support her are Republicans, even though she is as dumb as a rock, they still love her. Including O'Reilly, who said she is a rock star, which proves what a right-wing idiot he is. Billy reported his website poll results, the unscientific results. He asked his right-wing website visitors if Palin was smart to resign, 77% said yes, 23% said no.
Then Billy had the bogus reality check segment. Most of them were just stupid and had no reality check. One of them was Congressman Bobby Rush calling for O'Reilly to say he was sorry for the racist Michael Jackson comments he made. That was it, no check, just the report on what Bobby Rush said. And of course O'Reilly did not say he was sorry, because he does not think he made any racist comments. And btw, numerous articles were written about O'Reilly's racist Michael Jackson comments, including the one at tvguide.com article. Billy mentioned it, and called them loons, even though they were right.
One so-called reality check was an Evian water commercial with a bunch of computer generated babies dancing. That was it, no check, he just played the commercial, how in the hell is that a reality check on anything, answer, it's not. I'm guessing O'Reilly probably got paid to run it, who knows, but it sure as hell did not have a reality check.
Then pinheads and patriots, and the bogus e-mails. Billy named Tony Snow the patriot when he has been dead for a year. I guess if you are a Republican in O'Reilly world, you are a patriot a year after you die. What's strange is that out of the whole country O'Reilly could not find a patriot who is alive. And if you did not notice, Billy had 7 Republican guests, and 0 Democratic guests on this show.
The Friday 7-10-09 O'Reilly/Ingraham Factor Review
By: Steve - July 11, 2009 - 8:25am
The TPM was called The President And The Pope. Laura (far right nasal nose voice) Ingraham was filling in for Billy so I will not do a full review. She talked about the Obama visit to the Pope, and called it a photo op. She basically trashed Obama for his visit to the Pope, even though the Pope pretty much agrees with everything Obama does, except abortion. Ingraham trashed Obama for being pro-choice, and she said he has an anti-life agenda. Which is just ridiculous and nothing but right-wing spin. Being pro-choice is not anti-life, it's what true Americans think about abortion.
People like Ingraham, O'Reilly, etc. like to say how great America is for being a free country, they praise our freedoms, and say it's great to live in a free country. Then they try to tell a woman what to do with her body, for partisan political reasons. That's not freedom, it's a bunch of pro-life right-wing wackos trying to control what women do with their bodies. When it's none of their business, and if they got their way, it would take a freedom away from them. They try to demonize people who are pro-choice by twisting that into they are pro-death, which is also ridiculous.
Being pro-choice does not mean you are pro-death. It simply means you actully believe in freedom, not just say you do. Being pro-choice means you will let each woman decide what to do with her body, and it means the decision to get an abortion, or not, should be between the woman and her doctor, without a bunch of pro-life wackos trying to invade their privacy and tell them what to do with their own damn body, in a so-called free country. The hypocrisy on this from idiots like O'Reilly and Ingraham is stunning. Not to mention, they claim to be pro-life, and they say all life should be allowed, then they support the death penalty. So they are pro-death, while claiming to be pro-life, and that's the hypocrisy.
Ingraham also said the Obama poll numbers have recently dropped a lot, which is another lie. For the month of June Gallup reports Obama had an average approval of 61%, and now it's 58%, that's a 3 point drop, which is not much, and within the margin of error in their poll. She acted like his numbers had dropped 10 points, when it's a small 3 point drop.
And the rest of the show was about what you would expect from a far right partisan Republican. All right-wing spin and propaganda, passed off as fair and balanced news. At least Ingraham has the integrity to admit she is a Republican, unlike O'Reilly who has no integrity at all, and refuses to admit he is a Republican. When he has the 3rd most conservative show in America, behind Limbaugh and Hannity, and just watching the show for 10 minutes will show you Billy is a right-wing spin doctor who takes the Republican side on 99% of the issues.
O'Reilly denies he is a Republican, which is a lie, and everyone knows it, so if he will lie about that, how can we believe anything else he says. When you are on a jury, the judge tells you that if a witness is caught lying you can throw out everything they said, because once you get caught lying about one thing, you can not be trusted. That's Bill O'Reilly, he is a proven and documented liar, so nothing he says can ever be trusted to be true.
In fact, if you take the time to research what O'Reilly says, as I do, and have done for 8 years now, you will find that about 95% of what BILLY says is either right-wing spin, or a flat out lie. As I sit here right now, the only thing I can think of where O'Reilly told the whole truth, with no right-wing spin, is the reporting he did on the corrupt oil speculators who manipulate oil prices to get rich off the backs of the American people.
O'Reilly Caught Lying About The God And Country Festival
By: Steve - July 10, 2009 - 3:15pm
Last night O'Reilly was crying like the little right-wing baby he is, about the military flyover being denied for the God and Country festival. The flyover was denied because they are a religious group, but O'Reilly argued that the festival had nothing to do with religion. Which is just insane, he even told crazy Laura Ingraham that he won the debate over it, and kicked the 2 liberals butts that told him it was denied for religious reasons.
O'REILLY: The president is a secular leader and that message has been well received in Washington. For example, for more than 40 years the Air Force has flown over the 'God and Country Festival' in Idaho. But not this year! The Pentagon says it cannot supply planes because the festival endorses religion. But to diminish spirituality by denying the good folks in Idaho a flyover is simply stupid, another example of secularists being disrespectful to people of faith.Here is their actual mission statement, right off the website they have for the festival.
To further explore President Obama's views on religion, The Factor welcomed radio talk show hosts Warren Ballentine and Leslie Marshall, both Obama supporters. "It's definitely a change from the former administration," Marshall said, "but I like it. I believe in separation of church and state and I did not elect Barack Obama for him to go to church, but for him to get the country back on track." Ballentine also took issue with the Talking Points Memo.
"It's dumb that you're making this argument, Bill. This president is purposely taking the position that he's not going to be connected with any religion, and the festival in Idaho is a religious event."
The Factor disputed Ballentine's assertion: "It's not a religious event, it's a 'God and Country Festival' and 'God' is on your money, Warren. You take it every week when you get paid! There's no reason on Earth that the Air Force can't fly over the festival."
The Mission of the God and Country Festival
Our mission is primarily about spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. We believe this Festival, started in 1967, is an incredible tool to share this Good News by strengthening the fabric of our society through our connection to family and country.
We want to encourage believers everywhere to get out in their communities, not just to strengthen each other, but to encourage family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers to learn more about who Jesus Christ is and what He's done for each and every one of us.
To borrow a phrase from Michael Boerner of Mission Media, In order to witness to people, you have to do the following:
* Bless peopleThis, in a nutshell, is what the Treasure Valley God and Country Festival attempts to do. The stated purpose of the Festival is to meet the following goals:
* Fellowship with them
* Meet their needs
* Present the Truth
1. Develop a sense of community spirit in a relaxed, social atmosphere, making all citizens of the Treasure Valley feel welcome in friendship.We are attempting to meet steps one and two, to bless people and fellowship with them, through music, kids' activities, and teens' activities.
2. Present a safe, pleasing, and inspiring fireworks display to commemorate our country's independence.
3. Dedicate a significant portion of the program to emphasizee, particularly to young people, the precepts on which our country was founded: Individual rights, belief in God, a representative form of government guided by an assemblage of laws created by elected individuals, sanctity of human life, and all other rights outlined in the Constitution and its supporting documents.
4. Present the Good News of Jesus Christ in a clear and concise manner.
5. Avoid any pretense or appearance of a political rally.
6. Remind those who attend of their good fortune to live in a free society and also their responsibilities to maintain the freedoms which they enjoy.
After we have done that, we attempt to accomplish step three, to meet their needs, by promoting community activities such as "Communities in Action," and other organizations whose goal is to meet peoples' needs with a Christian heart.
At the end of the evening, we move to step four, presenting the Truth. Each year, we ensure that the message of the Gospel is presented, and information is provided for those who have heard and want to know more about Jesus Christ.
Now you know what their mission statement is, it's right there in black and white, yet O'Reilly claimed the festival has nothing to do with religion. Which is beyond insane, and crazy O'Reilly actually said he won the debate, yeah in his warped mind, but that's about it. Anyone who claims it is not a religious festival should be locked up in a rubber room with big men in white coats to watch over you.
O'Reilly Still Ignoring The Senator Ensign Affair Scandal
By: Steve - July 10, 2009 - 11:15am
To this day neither Bill O'Reilly, or anyone on his show, has said one word about the Republican Senator John Ensign who was caught cheating on his wife with the spouse of a campaign staffer who worked for him. The great journalist O'Reilly has totally ignored this story, even though it's a big scandal, and exactly the same thing as the John Edwards affair. Actually worse, because Ensign was a Senator when he cheated, Edwards was not in Congress when he cheated, he was only running for president.
And now we find out Ensign's parents paid $96,000 to his mistress, and paid it $12,000 dollars at a time so it did not have to be reported to the IRS. Which is the same kind of scandal Edwards was accused of, O'Reilly reported the hell out of that. When Edwards campaign manager was accused of buying a $100,000 house for Edwards mistress O'Reilly was all over that story, he reported it numerous times over a month or two, with full segments on it, and guests on to discuss it.
But when a sitting Republican Senator does it O'Reilly is silent as a mouse, and has never said one word about the entire story, ever. While claiming the rest of the media has a partisan bias, and that they ignore real news stories for partisan reasons, and he even claims to be an Independent at the same time. Then he ignores this story for partisan reasons, simply because the guy is a Republican.
Someone should ask Bernie Goldberg to explain away this right-wing bias by O'Reilly, but that will never happen, because they just ignore it. Here are the details, the details you will never see on the Factor, by the so-called Independent journalist Bill O'Reilly.
The husband of John Ensign's mistress spoke publicly for the first time today, claiming that the Nevada Senator continued to pursue his wife, Cynthia Hampton, even after powerful political colleagues tried to stop him.
Doug Hampton said that Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn and others urged Ensign "to end the affair and help the Hamptons pay off their home and move to Colorado. But Ensign was so infatuated that he continued, Hampton said, reports the Las Vegas Sun.
He also claimed that Ensign paid Hampton's wife more than $25,000 in severance, which could be a possible felony violation of campaign finance law.
Hampton added that Coburn confronted Ensign and urged him to provide millions of dollars in assistance to the Hamptons to pay off their mortgage, in addition to getting Ensign to write a remorseful letter to Cynthia Hampton.
In the letter, Ensign expresses his shame: "I was completely self-centered and only thinking of myself. I used you for my own pleasure not letting thoughts of you, Dough, Brandon or Brittany come into my mind."
But that attitude changed quickly, says Hampton, who claims that Ensign later repudiated the letter and told him "I'm in love with your wife."
Now Ensign's attorney admits that the senator paid out $96,000 in hush money to the Hamptons.
John Ensign's parents paid $96K to his mistress
Sen. John Ensign's parents shelled out big bucks to pay off their son's mistress, the latest twist in an unfolding scandal that has upended the political career of the one-time rising GOP star.
The scandal has also touched Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), another prominent conservative, who revealed that he had confronted Ensign about the affair and urged him to end it, but says he will refuse to divulge any conversations with Ensign — even under inquiry from ethics investigators.
On Thursday, Ensign's attorney said that the senator's parents gave Doug Hampton, Cynthia Hampton and their two children gifts worth $96,000 in the form of a check. The attorney, Paul Coggins, said that each gift was limited to $12,000 and "complied with tax rules governing gifts."
The disclosure of the April 2008 payment seemed intended to head off growing questions about whether Ensign violated federal law by failing to report what Doug Hampton called a severance package worth more than $25,000 to his wife Cynthia, who left Ensign's campaign staff on April 30, 2008.
You can read more with a simple google search. This is a huge scandal, involving a Sitting Senator, sex, money, a 2nd Senator, possible corruption and illegal use of campaign funds, and on and on, yet the great so-called journalist Bill O'Reilly has never said one word about any of it. For partisan reasons, simply because the man is a Republican.
Even though he reported the hell out of a similar story that involved the Democrat John Edwards. If that's not bias, hypocrisy, and a double standard, I have no idea what is.
The Thursday 7-9-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 10, 2009 - 9:45am
The TPM was called God And Global Warming. Billy talked about Obama meeting with the Pope today, and Global Warming. O'Reilly cried about some military flyover that was denied for a God and Country Festival. He blamed Obama, and called it part of his secularist agenda. Then he mentioned Global Warming, he said China and India will not follow the plan, so it will not work. Which is just crazy, if everyone else follows it, greenhouse gas emissions will be lowered. It will not work as well if China and India are not involved, but it will work. Dumbass O'Reilly said it will not work at all if China and India are not involved, which is just a lie, and right-wing spin.
Then O'Dumbass had 2 Democrats on, Leslie Marshall and Warren Ballentine were put on to discuss the stupid military flyover denial. What a massive waste of tv time this was. Billy said it was dumb for Obama to cancel the military flyover for the God and Country festival. So he asked the 2 guests what they think, they both disagreed with him, and pointed out they are a christian religious group. Then crazy O'Reilly said they are not a religious group, and it has nothing to do with religion. Which is just insane, they are a Christian religious group, and the damn event is called GOD And Country. Hey O'Moron, do you understand what GOD means, and what part of they are a Christian religious group do you not understand.
I am glad the flyover was denied, and they should deny more of these flyovers. It's a waste of taxpayer money, and they should only be approved if they pay for it, so no taxpayer money is used. And they should be denied every time if a religious group wants it. O'Reilly is such a right-wing Christian religious nut, he denied they were a religious group, which is just crazy. He said Obama was crazy to deny it, when the Pentagon denied it not Obama, and what's crazy here is O'Reilly saying they are not a religious group, and it had nothing to do with religion. Earth to O'Reilly, they are a Christian religious group, and their festival is called GOD and Country, idiot.
Then O'Reilly had the far right nut job Laura Ingraham on to talk about it, and of course she agreed with O'Reilly. Because they are both Republicans who agree with each other about 99% of the time, not to mention she is the fill in for O'Reilly when he is gone, including tonight. What's really funny is how O'Reilly told Ingraham he kicked the 2 liberals butt in the last segment, and that he won the debate. My God the man is insane, he got his butt kicked, and he lost the debate. Only in O'Reilly world would he claim he won that debate and kicked their butts. They won the debate, they showed they are a religious group, and they said it was right to deny the flyover.
Ingraham agreed with Billy and said Obama is a bad guy for having them deny the flyover, she basically trashed Obama because he is not a religious nut like her. When Obama was right to deny the flyover, because they are a religious group. The Government should not be doing things for any religious group, and I think all these flyovers should be denied for everyone, religious group or not, unless they pay for it with their own money. Hey Billy, I thought you were opposed to the Government wasting taxpayer money, yet if it's a religious group you dont care, and suddenly it's ok to waste taxpayer money on a flyover, you hypocrite.
O'Reilly then asked Ingraham if she believes in Global Warming, and she said no. Which proves what a total right-wing nut she is, and even O'Reilly said he believes in it, as do everyone who is not on the payroll of the gas and oil companies. The whole world believes in Global Warming, except a few Republican idiots like Ingraham etc, and the people who get paid by big corporations to deny it. Then dumbass O'Reilly said once again that the Obama Global Warming plan will not work if China and India are not part of it. Which is crazy, it will work to lower greenhouse gases, it will just not work as well if they are not involved.
Then Geraldo was on to talk about the heartbreaking moment at the Michael Jackson memorial when his daughter spoke and cried. It was a heartbreaking moment, and it was tough to even watch without tearing up. But O'Reilly sure as hell dont care, because he just spent a week trashing the guy before his body is even in the grave, and defending all the racist white guys (his friends King and Goldberg) who said racist and insulting things about Jackson, so he is a fraud that was pretending he cared. Most likely this segment was done because O'Reilly has been taking so much heat for trashing Michael Jackson before he is even buried.
Billy will tell someone I'm not buying it when he dont believe them, well guess what a-hole, I'm not buying it. You are a jerk and a fraud, you hate Michael Jackson and you are a racist. Your one suck up segment with Geraldo will not change that, you showed your true colors, and those colors equal white Republican racist. And even in this suck up segment you once again trashed Jackson, let it go idiot, and move on, you are just digging it deeper. The best thing you can do is not say anything, just move on and report on something else, you racist right-wing loser.
Then O'Reilly had a stupid and ridiculous segment where he cried like a baby about the late night comedians doing Sarah Palin jokes. Billy had some unknown comedian Faith Salie on to discuss it, and she just made jokes about the whole thing, jokes that were not funny btw. This segment was sad and pathetic, and O'Reilly is just a total right-wing hypocrite with double standards. First, they are comedians who make jokes, that is their job, it's what they get paid to do. They make jokes about politicians, all of them, Democrats and Republicans, but dumbass O'reilly only complains when they do Palin jokes, or jokes about Republicans.
When they do jokes about Obama, or Biden, or Pelosi, Billy says nothing, zero, zip, nada, he is silent as a mouse. Somehow it's only wrong in O'Reilly world when they do jokes about Palin or a Republican. Not once did O'Reilly complain about the late night comedians doing Bill or Hillary Clinton jokes, ever, not one time. It's massive hypocrisy, and a double standard. Not to mention nobody gives a damn, but O'Reilly. Because they are comedians who make jokes, that is their job, and I dont care who they do jokes about. So just shut up you idiot, they are only doing what they get paid to do, and you crying about it will not do any good. Not to mention you are wasting tv time on this crap when you could be reporting real news.
Billy said enough is enough and it's time to stop doing jokes about his favorite girl Sarah Palin. Wow is he a moron, does he actually think they will listen to him. O'Reilly loves Palin so much it's insane, he cries about everything said about her, even jokes made by comedians, which proves he is a right-wing nut who loves her crazy right-wing ass. Palin is a dumb far right moron, and anyone who supports her is also a right-wing moron. Comedians make jokes, about Democrats and Republicans, so shut the hell up and report some real news.
Then O'Reilly had Megyn Kelly on to report on some tabloid crap legal cases that nobody cares about, and is not news. This is just another segment to get ratings. In fact, I would bet O'Reilly only does it because his 80 year old right-wing viewers love seeing hot blondes. In other words, O'Reilly gave her this segment because she is a hot blonde, and it gets good ratings with his viewers. They talk about lame legal cases that nobody cares about, and it's all about the ratings, from the ratings whore Bill O'Reilly. Not to mention there is no Democrat on with her, so it's a biased one sided analysis of those lame legal cases, just like the internet cop segments with Amanda Carpenter, no Democrat, just Republicans.
Then the no reality "Reality Check" segment from Bill (total right-wing spin) O'Reilly. He reports on 5 to 8 things that he does not like in the media, then he claims he gives them a reality check. When there is no check, let alone a reality check. It's O'Reilly putting his right-wing spin on something he saw on tv, that's not a reality check, it's just his opinion, it's only a reality check in his warped mind, and half the so-called checks, have no check.
It's just another one sided biased segment that O'Reilly uses to give his opinion about something in the media, with nobody there to counter what he said. If you watch this segment, and the Goldberg media watchdog segment you will see one thing. Neither O'Reilly or Goldberg ever report on, or find, any right-wing bias in the media, ever. Not once have they ever reported any right-wing bias at FOX News, the Washington Times, the Wall Street Journal, or any other Republican media outlet in America.
They claim to be Independent media watchdogs, then they ignore half the media, and all the bias at all the Republican media outlets. They are pretty much the same as the totally biased Media research center, they only find liberal media bias, and deny there is any Conservative media bias. Not to mention the only Factor media analyst is a Republican, Goldberg is a Republican, and there is no Factor Democrat media analyst. If that's being an Independent media watchdog, I'm Donald Trump.
And btw, on the Monday night Factor someone mentioned all the money Michael Jackson donated to charity. O'Reilly said he was doing an investigation on that and would report it later in the week. It's now Friday, and Ingraham will be filling in for Billy tonight. He never said a word about the money Jackson donated to charity, ever, not once, he lied about the investigation, and ignored it. Which proves once again that he is a partisan fraud, a biased right-wing hack, and a liar.
King, O'Reilly, & Goldberg Ignore Jackson Charity Donations
By: Steve - July 9, 2009 - 9:35am
Neither Peter King, Bernie Goldberg, or Bill O'Reilly ever mentioned all the money Michael Jackson donated to charity, or all the humanitarian work he did. O'Reilly hammers him for spending possibly $500 million dollars in his life, which is his right in a free country, and you dont see O'Reilly hammer rich white Republicans for spending billions in their life, while ignoring the fact that it has been reported Jackson gave $300 million dollars to charity, and possibly raised another $500 million for other charties. O'Reilly ignores all that, and never says a word about it.
Michael Jackson is a true humanitarian. He devoted a lot of time and money to a wide range of charities. He loves children and took time out when touring to secretly visit sick children. He also had special rooms at his home for sick and terminally ill children to stay over. And he was listed in the 2000 edition of the Guiness Book Of World Records for breaking the world record for the "Most Charities Supported By a Pop Star".
And yet dumbass O'Reilly ignored it all, and stated that Michael Jackson was just a guy who could sing and dance well. Then he was outraged that African Americans would claim him as one of their own, and make him and African American Icon. The outrage here is how stupid and biased Bill O'Reilly is, for trashing the man before he is even in the grave. While ignoring all the money he gave to charity, and all the good things he did for America, the kids, and the world, that's the outrage.
The outrage is when racist a-holes like King, Goldberg, and O'Reilly, all white Republican men btw, trash an American Icon and the king of pop. Then he has the nerve to tell black people who they can make an African American Icon, who the hell does he think he is, God?
And the worst part is that O'Reilly's racism is so normal to him he does not even understand he is a racist, and denies it. Because if Michael Jackson was white he would not be saying or doing any of this garbage. If Jackson was white, O'Reilly would be defending him, and attacking the people who are saying the bad things about him before he is even in the grave. Just as he did after Jerry Falwell died, instead he has become one of the attackers of Michael Jackson.
And yes, Michael Jackson had some personal problems, but there is a time and a place to discuss those problems. This is not the time, this is the time to respect the dead and let his family get over his death for at least a week or two, then you right-wing vultures can trash him. Notice that only Republicans are trashing Michael Jackson, this tells us a lot about them. That they are racists, because you can bet the farm if Michael Jackson were the white king of pop these right-wing scum like O'Reilly, Goldberg, and King would not be trashing him.
Not to mention the man was never convicted of anything, yet this scum Peter King calls him all those names when he was found not guilty 12 to 0 in the trial. And the racist O'Reilly not only defended the racist Peter King, he put him on his show to help him get his side of the story out. Where King did not retract anything, and said he stands by what he said. And I'm sure there is a spot in hell reserved for these two right-wing racist idiots, ok three spots with Goldberg.
O'Reilly claims to report the facts, all the facts, then he totally ignores the fact that Michael Jackson donated hundreds of million of dollars to charity. And he trashes the guy before he is even in the grave, and before the family has had time to get over his death. Which makes O'Reilly a lowlife right-wing racist a-hole in my book.
The Wednesday 7-8-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 9, 2009 - 9:15pm
The TPM was called Speculation Nation. Billy talked about the oil speculators and said the Government may finally put some controls on these crooks who bid the price of oil up and down for no reason, except to manipulate the market to make money. And of course since O'Reilly had talked about it in the past, he took credit for it, which is just ridiculous. As if people in the Government did not know the oil speculators were crooks without O'Reilly reporting it. And I highly doubt the Obama administration plans to do anything about it because stupid O'Reilly reported it, man does he have an ego. For once O'Reilly was actually right about something, which is the miracle here, that he ignored political ideology for once, and actually told the no spin truth about these oil speculating crooks.
Then O'Reilly had the racist Republican Congressman from New York on, Peter King. This is the scum who trashed Michael Jackson before he was even in the grave. O'Reilly put him on the air because King is a friend of his, and because he agrees with King. O'Reilly agrees with King, and defends him, he said King is right and that he is not a racist. Yeah two old white Republicans who agree and defend each other, what a shocker, NOT!
Like I said, there will be a time to discuss the personal problems Michael Jackson had, that time is not now. We ALL should respect the dead, and let the family get over his death for a while before you right-wing scum trash him. I'm not saying you should not discuss the things he did in his life, just wait a while before you do it, is that too much too ask. You say you care about the children, what about Jackson's children who might see you scum calling their dad a child molester and a sick man before they have had time to get over his death, and before he is even buried. Answer that O'Reilly you piece of shit.
Then O'Reilly had Al Sharpton on to discuss Michael Jackson, and of course O'Reilly disagreed with everything he said, and constantly talked over him and cut him off. Unlike the King interview, where O'Reilly let King say whatever he wanted without talking over him, or cutting him off in mid sentence. Proving where O'Reilly stands on the issue, he supports King, and disagrees with Sharpton on everything. Sharpton pointed out that a jury voted 12 to 0 not guilty, and that it was reckless and irresponsible for an elected Congressman to call the man a child molester when he was never convicted of it, ever. O'Reilly disagreed and defended his friend Peter King.
Then he told Sharpton that blacks could not make Jackson an African American Icon because he bleached his skin and had kids with white women. Which may be the most ridiculous thing O'Reilly has said in his life. Who made him God, and who decided he could tell anyone who can be an African American Icon, and who cant. O'Reilly is such a racist idiot he does not even understand how stupid he sounds, and how racist he sounds, when he makes those insane comments. Earth to O'Jackass, Michael Jackson was black, even if he bleached his skin and had kids with white women, he was still a black man. And he was the king of pop, not the so-called king of pop as you said, and if black people want to make him an African American Icon, they can dumbass, and you should just shut up about it because you are making a fool out of yourself.
After that O'Reilly had a segment on Palin, nobody cares but him, a segment with his biased right-wing internet cop Amanda Carpenter, where they ignored all the internet hate from the right about Michael Jackson, re-runs of Dennis Miller, and the stupid Barack & a Hard Place segment. And all of that was worthless right-wing garbage to get ratings, passed off as news, so I'm not going to waste my time reporting any of it.
Then O'Reilly did the pinheads and patriots, and the stupid e-mails. And now here is a perfect example of how stupid the pinheads and patriots segment is. O'Reilly named Halle Berry a patriot, simply because she went to seaworld and hugged a whale. I kid you not, he named her a patriot for hugging a whale. How in the hell is that being a patriot?
Which is just ridiculous, and why the segment should be cancelled, because if that's the best you can do, you are a moron. Why not name an American military man a patriot if you cant think of anyone, dumbass. And btw, O'Reilly ignored the real news from yesterday, the story about the Rove testimony to the House Judiciary Committee, and the story about the letter from Panetta where he admits the CIA misled Congress in some of it's briefings under Bush. Those are real news stories, and the great O'Reilly ignored them both.
Scheuer & Beck Win Gold in Worst Persons
By: Steve - July 7, 2009 - 12:35pm
Scheuer and Beck won the gold in Worst Person in The World last night on Keith Olbermann, and notice that both of these idiots are regulars on the Factor. From the Tuesday 7-7-09 Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
OLBERMANN: But our winners, former CIA analyst, ironically in the Bin Laden section in the '90s, Michael Scheuer and Glenn Beck of Fox News. A lot has been written online suggesting Scheuer merits a special comment. The man has some sort of perverse fetish about seeing part of this country destroyed by nuclear weapons. He came on this program in February, 2007 and practically drooled at the prospect.
He deserves something, but not a special comment. His comment, “the only chance we have as a country right now,” he said on Fox News last week, “is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States, because it's going to take a grassroots, bottom-up pressure, because these politicians prize their office, prize the praise of the media and the Europeans. It's an absurd situation, again. Only Osama can execute an attack that will force Americans to demand that government protect them effectively, consistently and with as much violence as necessary.”
Scheuer's interviewer, Glenn Beck of Fox News, did not attempt to correct him, did not scream at him, what the hell do you mean the only chance we have as a country right now. Beck did not accuse Scheuer of insanity, nor disloyalty, nor palling around with terrorists? Beck did not even burst into tears. The host merely nodded gravely, as if this made sense. “Which is why I was thinking,” he said, “if I were him,” Bin Laden, “that would be the last thing I would do right now,” Beck answered, agreeing with Scheuer, and barely containing his disappointment as he did so.
We need Bin Laden to destroy part of America in order to save America. You know, since that worked out so well for everybody on 9/11. Scheuer has already given comfort to the enemy. Now, Scheuer adds the piquant touch of disingenuousness. Criticized online, Scheuer insisted he never said what he clearly had said.
“Far from wishing for another attack,” he wrote, “I trust that Churchill's judgment that God looks out for drunks and the United States of America still holds good, and we remain safe. God better do the job because no one in our elite is doing it.”
Of course, here Mr. Scheuer is correct. No one in their elite is doing their job. Mr. Scheuer has issued a call for the head of al Qaeda to “detonate a major weapon in the United States,” and yet for some reason, to my knowledge at least, the Department of Homeland Security has not yet been to see him, nor been to see Mr. Beck, nor Fox News for having provided him a platform and passive assent, for approving of not just a terrorist attack which could kill Americans, but approving of one that might even kill Fox viewers.
If we're going to continue to prevent terrorism in this country, international or domestic, we have to legally stop the people who view terrorism as acceptable means of affecting political change in this country, people like Michael Scheuer. And we have to legally stop the people like Glenn Beck, the enablers who simply nod gravely, as if the idea and the speaker were not treasonous. Author Michael Scheuer and Glenn Beck of Fox News, today's worst persons in the world.
ThinkProgress Reports O'Reilly Michael Jackson Racism
By: Steve - July 7, 2009 - 12:20pm
ThinkProgress had this today:
O'Reilly Tells African-Americans Whom They Can And Cannot Hold Up As Icons
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly was full of his usual hypocrisy as he went off last night about the death of Michael Jackson. O'Reilly started off on a respectful note, saying, "The family of Michael Jackson honored his memory today in Los Angeles. And I do not, do not wish to intrude on that. They are entitled to grieve any way they want." However, he then decided to intrude, saying that he was "fed up with all the adulation" because it's "basically grandstanding and pathetic in the extreme."
O'Reilly was also offended at the racial component to the Jackson coverage. "The message is very clear, if you criticize Michael Jackson, you hate black people," said O'Reilly. He, however, then injected race into the discussion by telling Fox News analyst Marc Lamont Hill that blacks shouldn't look up to Jackson:
O'REILLY: Okay, then why is he being held up by the African-American community as a pillar of black America when he bleaches his skin?That's right -- O'Reilly, who has said he is amazed that a restaurant "run by blacks" is like any other restaurant in New York City, is now dictating whom people of color should hold up as icons.
But answer me this, if he is such a black American icon, why did he have his kids with white women?
HILL: That's a personal matter. That doesn't make him less black. There's no blackness meter here. You don't become less black when you have a white kid.
O'REILLY: You don't become an African-American icon when you do something like that.
HILL: No, you become an African-American icon for producing the greatest music and being the greatest entertainer ever for being extraordinary humanitarian and for.
O'REILLY: No. You just become an American icon for that, not a black American icon.
HILL: It's not -- oh, he is an American idol -- icon. He is quintessentially American, but he's also undeniably black. You can't take black from him just because he has white kids.
O'Reilly Denies he is a Republican (Again)
By: Steve - July 7, 2009 - 11:20am
Last night during the Beck re-runs segment Billy asked Beck who he thought should be the new leader of the Republican party, Beck said you, Bill O'Reilly. To which O'Reilly replied I am not a Republican, i'm an Independent. Yeah and i'm Babe Ruth too, lol. It's ridiculous, as if just watching the show was not enough proof O'Reilly is a Republican, I found this yesterday.
It's a Republican website selling O'Reilly for president in 2012 products, everything from golf shirts to hats and coffee mugs, keychains, buttons, etc. It's a whole fricking page of O'Reilly for president garbage. Not to mention all his books are sold at the conservativebookclub.com website. I mean how long is he going to keep lying about it, that's dishonesty right Billy?
O'Reilly is as much of a Republican as Gingrich, Rove, Hannity, Limbaugh, Ingraham, or anyone like them, he just wont admit it. He runs this con game that he is an Independent, when nobody is buying it, and he would be better off to just admit he is a republican, instead he continues the lie, and then he wants people to believe him, when he cant even tell the truth about his partisan ideology.
The Tuesday 7-7-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 7, 2009 - 10:50am
The TPM was called The Real Deal About Michael Jackson. Okay folks let me explain something here, whenever Billy says here is the real deal, or the real truth, or the facts, it's going to be nothing but right-wing spin that is simply his personal opinion. So then O'Reilly went on to trash the media for covering the Michael Jackson story so much, for what he said was glorifying him. O'Reilly said he was fed up with all the tributes to Michael Jackson. And on his website he writes that Michael Jackson is the SO-CALLED king of pop.
Folks, what you have right there is a racist. O'Reilly would never say or do any of that if he was white. He's not the so-called king of pop, he is the king of pop, jackass. Do you think O'Reilly would say Elvis was the so-called king, of course not, because he's white. We have to face facts, O'Reilly is a racist who is trashing Michael Jackson because he is black. In his Talking Points at the beginning of the show, O’Reilly said he was fed up with all the adulation over Jackson.
O'REILLY: The truth is that Jackson's interactions with children were unacceptable for any adult. His incredible selfishness, spending hundreds of millions of dollars on himself while singing We Are The World should make any clear thinking American nauseous.
Then he attacked Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and other African Americans for “playing the race card” by claiming Jackson as one of their own.
Then O'Reilly had Dr. Marc Lamont Hill on to discuss it. Dr. Hill disagreed with O'Reilly and said there is racism happening in the Michael Jackson story. Billy disagreed 100%, and stated some ridiculous argument that since he has white kids it's impossible to be racism. Which is just insane, if you are black there will be racism against you from white people, whether your kids are white, blue, red, or yellow. That argument is what you would expect from a retarded 10 year old, not a cable news show host with a so-called masters degree.
I have to say that finally someone nailed O'Reilly on his hypocrisy and double standards. Dr. Hill told O'Reilly it is too soon to trash Michael Jackson, to wait at least a week or so. Then he told O'Reilly that he said the same thing when Falwell died. After Falwell died O'Reilly said people should wait at least a week before trashing the man. I say thank you Dr. Hill, finally someone nailed that jackass for his hypocrisy and double standards. And btw, the racist Congressman Peter King also trashed Michael Jackson, O'Reilly defended his comments and said he is not a racist. How does he know, does he live with him, no. It was ridiculous, and just shows that all racists stick together.
Then O'Reilly had Bernie Goldberg on to talk MJ and Palin. And of course Goldberg agreed with O'Reilly and also defended Peter King. Because they are all Republican racists who all stick together. King, O'Reilly, and Goldberg, are all racists who trashed Michael Jackson, and that is a fact. Then they all defended what the other racists said, with no Democrats to counter what they said, except Dr. Hill, and he was only on for one segment. These racists just dont like the fact that a black man is getting all this media coverage, and that they call him the king of pop.
Goldberg defended Rep. Peter King, who has come under fire for calling Jackson a low-life and a pervert and complaining that the coverage of Jackson is too politically correct. What can too politically correct mean in this case other than too sensitive to African Americans? The fact that King said such harsh words before Jackson had been buried and eulogized added insult to injury. It has absolutely incensed Jackson's fans who are now raising money for any candidate to run against King.
O'Reilly called the media coverage of MJ bizarre, and Goldberg agreed. How is it bizarre when he was the king of pop. I agree the media has over reported the story, but it's not bizarre to do it for the king of pop. Only a white Republican racist would call it bizarre, that's you O'Reilly, I'm calling you a racist. Then these two idiots cried about the Palin media coverage, they love her and hate anyone who reports the truth about her. Billy played a clip of Rick Sanchez on CNN, asking if maybe Palin was pregnant, then he called Sanchez a clown. For what, Billy just hates him because he busted O'Reilly for lying about the CNN reporting on the soldier who was killed by the muslim.
And btw folks, all this racist garbage from O'Reilly and Goldberg happened on the very day of the Jackson memorial, they did not even wait one day before they trashed him, let alone a week. Hey Jerks, what happened to showing a little respect for the dead, the man is not even in the grave and you a-holes are already trashing him. For Gods sake, at least wait until he is in the grave before you rip him to pieces. I think there will be a time to talk about his faults, but not now, maybe a week from now, just as you asked for when Falwell died.
Then O'Reilly did is it legal with Wiehl and Kelly, and the stupid waste of time body language garbage. Neither segment was worth reporting on, so I'm not going to, haha. Then crazy Glenn Beck was on, but not live, it was re-runs of Beck from past shows. Ummmmmmm, why? Hey Billy, why not have a Democratic guest on live instead of re-runs of Beck. Billy does it for ratings from his right-wing viewers, that's why Democrats barely get on the show. Beck is a right-wing nut they agree with, so they love him. O'Reilly loves him too, that's why he has him on so much, and even when he cant be on live he shows re-runs of him, for ratings, and because he is a right-winger.
Then Billy had the lame culture quiz with Doocy and MacCallum. Which is just a giant waste of tv time, hey Billy what happened to doing the hard news show where you look out for the folks. This is just nonsense to get ratings from your 80 year old right-wing old viewers. Then pinheads and patriots and the e-mail. O'Reilly pimped his American Patriot shirts again, the shirts that are not made in America, lol.
And another ridiculous, biased and mostly one sided right-wing racist O'Reilly Factor was over. With 6 Republicans to 1 Democrat, and if I counted O'Reilly it would have been 7 to 1. If that's a fair and balanced no spin zone show, with an Independent host, I'm Elvis.
The Monday 7-6-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 7, 2009 - 9:00am
The TPM was called Is Obama Becoming Schwarzenegger. Billy was back and trashing Obama as fast as he could. He talked about how Schwarzenegger has bankrupted California and he said Obama could do the same thing and bankrupt America. Which is just ridiculous, because States have to balance a budget and the Federal Government does not, not to mention the Federal Government has the power to raise taxes and generate income to pay off any debt they might have, and they can also print more money. So America will never go bankrupt, but O'Reilly keeps spinning this garbage out just to make Obama look bad. Then he claims he is fair to Obama, which is also ridiculous, he trashes everything Obama does, and lies to make him look bad every chance he gets.
Then Billy had the total right-wing nut job John Ziegler on to talk about Sarah Palin quitting her job. This guy is an Obama hating right-wing nut who loves Palin and defends everything she does, so he is hardly an objective analyst. He is the guy who made the lied filled (smear job) documentary about Obama that was only done to help John McCain beat Obama in the presidential election. And of course no Democrat was on to give the counter point. This guy Ziegler loves Palin and he trashed the media for the way they have reported on her. Both O'Reilly and Ziegler speculated she quit because of the media attacks on her and her family. When most people believe she quit to make a lot of money writing a book, doing speeches, etc.
O'Reilly asked him if she quit to make money and run for president in 2012, and he said no way. Ziegler denied it had anything to do with money, and said she will probably not run for president in 2012, here is my question. How in the hell do you know, it's all speculation, and just a guessing game. Palin is the only one who knows why she quit, and she is not telling anyone, let alone this nut job Ziegler. And btw, only a right-wing stooge would put this guy on the air to talk about anything, he has no credibility, and he is just a partisan hack who used money he raised to try and help McCain beat Obama with his lie filled smear film.
Then O'Reilly put Karl Rove on to discuss Palin, and of course he loves her and everything she does. The only thing bad he said about her was that quitting now was not a smart political move. And you know O'Reilly loves Palin and defended her. Billy said he had no problem with her quitting, ignoring the fact that she was voted in to do a job, and she quit half way through her term. O'Reilly said she can come back in a couple years and run for president in 2012, which is the exact same thing Rush Limbaugh said. At the end of the segment, Rove and O'Reilly trashed Obama about his trip to Russia, even though it's a good trip. Because they are both partisan right-wing idiots, who can never say anything good about Obama no matter what he does.
Then O'Reilly had 2 more Republicans on, Juan Williams and Mary K. Ham. They talked about Palin and how Obama might bankrupt the country. And of course they both agreed with O'Reilly, even though it's nonsense and they know it. Billy even admitted it's all speculation, and that he has no idea if Obama will bankrupt the country. Yet he goes on the air every night and claims he will anyway, even after saying many times that he never speculates, and only deals in the facts. Then he speculates his right-wing ass off, just to make Obama look bad, which he never did to his hero Bush. They talked about Palin and Billy said he has no beef with anything Palin has done. Of course he dont, because he loves her and agrees with her on almost everything. Which proves he is insane, and a right-wing stooge, because only the far right Republicans support Palin, maybe 20% of America, and O'Reilly is in that 20%, then he claims to be an Independent, now that's funny.
Then O'Reilly did a segment on how much money Michael Jackson spent in his lifetime, he claims it was $500 million. What's funny is the other night O'Reilly and Goldberg were complaining that the media is over covering the Jackson story, then he reports on it every night with at least one segment, if not two or three. What a fricking hypocrite, he does what he complained about. O'Reilly reports on it every night, so he is just as bad as everyone else in the media. O'Reilly also said the media has glorified Jackson, yeah because he was the king of pop you dumbass. They also glorified Elvis, because he was the king of his time, idiot.
Then O'Reilly had two lawyers on, one Democrat and one Republican. They talked about how much money Jackson spent and some other crap, and I dont care. Then O'Reilly had the two Republican culture warriors on, Gretchen Carlson and Juliet Huddy. And they spent the whole fricking segment talking about Michael Jackson. Carlson said she is tired of the Jackson story and that the media is over covering it. Billy showed his true hypocrisy and admitted they do it for ratings, when in the past he has denied that, and said he is a journalist with a hard news show, who reports the real news and looks out for the little guy.
O'Reilly admitted that even FOX News is doing it for ratings, so CNN and MSNBC do not get higher ratings. Earth to O'Reilly, it's called selling out for ratings, and to hell with reporting real news. Billy said they have to do it to compete with the other cable networks. So now he can never say they are a real news network, he admits they just do whatever it takes to get ratings. Not to mention after crying about the media over covering the Jackson story O'Reilly does half the show on it, for ratings. So he is doing the very same thing he complains about the rest of the media doing. What a fricking hypocrite, it's massive hypocrisy.
Then Billy did the (no reality) Reality Check segment. And of course O'Reilly used it to trash Al Franken for beating Norm Coleman in the Minnesota Senate race. He said it was a sad day in America that Franken is a Senator. Haha, it's only a sad thing for Republican idiots like you, who hate him because he simply told the truth about you, when he had his radio show on Air America. It's partisan bias from O'Reilly, he hates Franken because he played clips of O'Reilly's lies and then told the people the truth. As O'Reilly called it, smearing him, when all he did was read a quote, or play a tape of O'Reilly's own words, then show he was lying. So now O'Reilly smears Franken as revenge for him telling the truth about O'Reilly.
Not to mention, Franken just got in and he has not done anything yet to judge him on. When Bush got elected and liberals trashed him, O'Reilly said wait until he has done something, and give him time before you judge him. Now O'Reilly changes his tune and trashes Franken before he has even done anything, it's bias, hypocrisy, and a double standard. One reality check was the woman in jail video, where the squirrel pops out from between her boobs. How in the hell is that a reality check on anything, where is the reality check. It was just a stupid video that was shown for ratings, there was no reality check, none.
Then the pinheads and patriots, and the stupid e-mails. Billy pimped the America Patriot Factor t-shirts, even though they are not made in America, they are made in Hondorus or something. Is that not un-American? Dont you think Billy should be having the American Patriot shirt made in fricking America. It's un-American, and O'Reilly is a traitor to his country, especially now when that money needs to stay her and help the economy. So I am calling O'Reilly and un-American traitor, for having his American Patriot shirts made in a fricking foreign country.
And one last thing, Billy talked about his vacation last week, in FRICKING Switzerland. Not to mention he should be taking his vacation here in America to help our economy, he was caught lying his ass off about Switzerland. This morning I got an e-mail from a resident of Switzerland, and they tell me O'Reilly lied his ass off about his country. Here is what he wrote to me.
Gog Perko: i saw this morning the show from that moron and how he talked about his vacation in Switzerland.....the country where i am from.And that is the no spin truth, from a guy who is in Switzerland. Does anyone believe there is no trash in Switzerland, that was just unreal, there is trash everywhere, even in Switzerland, O'Reilly just makes this shit up and hopes someone believes it. Not to mention, O'Reilly is an un-American traitor for having his American Patriot shirts made in a foreign country, and for not taking his vacation here in America so it will help our economy. I guess he cant find anywhere in America to take a vacation, yeah that's it, NOT!
That dickhead talked a lot of shit and put wrong information out. He said Switzerland has 12.5 million people......in reality we have 7.7 million, then he said, if u wanna get a swiss passport, you have to wait 12 years......bullshit!
Its 5 years after u recieve a C-Permit (kinda like a green card). Then he stated that he has not seen any litter on the road and the the city or wherever he was......i can confirm to you, that u can find also lot of trash if you go to the right places, maybe he confused Switzerland with disneyland. So.....he talked about our country like its straight out of a fairy tale.
At the end he also said that he was in the palace hotel in Gstaad.......thats a place only tourists go, that confirms that he knows nothing about Switzerland!!!!
This idiot talks way too much shit, and i hope u can use this information on your next report about the show.
The Friday 7-3-09 O'Reilly Factor Review
By: Steve - July 4, 2009 - 11:00am
There was no TPM, and no live show. O'Reilly did a re-run and called it the American Icons Special. The whole show was all re-runs of Factor TV Icons segments. I do want to say something about Sarah Palin, lol.
Wow is she an idiot, and I am being totally serious. I watched her 18 minute press conference where she said she will resign as Governor of Alaska on July 24th. Which will probably make her a lot of money from these right-wing idiots who love her, but my God she is one stupid woman.
She is like a borderline mental patient, her press conference was like watching a skit on Saturday Night Live. I was thinking is this Tina Fey doing a comedy bit, or is it the actual Sarah Palin. It was pathetic, and it was painful to watch. I almost felt sorry for her, notice I said almost, lol.
She is a moron, and that press conference was just insane. I kept thinking who wrote her speech, a retarded 10 year old, it was all over the place and full of lies. It was so bad and so poorly written I could barely stand to watch the whole thing. After it was over even the Republicans guests were saying it was one of the worst things they had ever seen.
And that is what her fellow Republicans thought about it, so you can imagine what the Democrats said about the speech. How can anyone support her, she is stupid, and I mean actually dumb, as in, dumb as a rock. Sarah Palin should not even be a dog catcher, let alone a Governor or a possible presidential candidate.
How did the people of Alaska elect her, they must be as stupid as she is, anyone who voted for her dumb ass should have their voter card taken away. The woman is a braindead moron, and that is being kind. She needs to get out of the public spotlight and go back to riding her snow machine and killing moose, because that's about all she is qualified for.
And if she runs for president in 2012, I hope she wins the Republican nomination, then Obama would crush her dumb ass like a bug in 2 seconds. Because nobody but the far right losers who love her, would ever vote for her stupid ass. Which is maybe 30% of the country, if that, and Obama would most likely beat her 60% to 30%, or worse. Maybe 70% to 20%, she is that stupid.
I have a question for Republicans, why do you like her, just because she is sorta sexy, because other than that I do not see one reason to vote for her. She is stupid, and maybe the dumbest politician I have ever seen. Can a Republican e-mail me and tell me why you would support Sarah Palin when it's clear she is a borderline retard.
The Thursday 7-2-09 O'Reilly/Huckabee Factor Review
By: Steve - July 3, 2009 - 1:00pm
There was no TPM, and the Republican Mike Huckabee filled in for O'Reilly. Huckabee had Newt Gingrich on to trash Obama and everything he is doing, from health care, to unemployment, to cap and trade, Gingrich hates everything Obama is doing and says it will ruing the country. But remember this folks, Gingrich and all the Republicans in Congress said the same thing back in 1993, when Bill Clinton put his agenda in place. Guess what, they were all wrong, and ove the next 8 years we had the biggest economic boom in the history of the country, and all those Republicans were just wrong.
Of course it will be harder for Obama than it was for Clinton, and take longer, because Bush has the economy in such bad shape it will take years to fix it. And the Republicans have no alternative plans, their only plan is to just vote no on everything Obama does, and hope it dont work, so they can use it for political reasons. They are actually hoping Obama fails, so they can benefit politically. Yet you dont hear a word about that from O'Reilly, Gingrich, Ingraham, Crowley, Williams, Huckabee, Ham, Morris, or any of them on the Factor. They want the country to fail so they will get a political gain, now that's un-American, and yet O'Reilly never says a word about it.
Then Huckabee had Dick Morris on to talk about the media coverage of Obama, and how they are getting tougher on him. Which may or may not be true, depending on who you ask, and his approval rating is still 63% at Gallup. Crazy Morris said Obama needs to add more doctors before he expands health care, but how does he do that, you cant make more people go through medical school and become doctors. So as usual Morris is an idiot, who is clearly not a medical expert. He is just a hooker toe sucking moron, who spins out right-wing propaganda to make money on it. Ad you right-wing suckers fall for his garbage hook line and sinker.
Then Huckabee had the Republican (retired) Army General Anthony Tata, who explained the U.S. offensive in Afghanistan. He put out some right-wing spin on what we need to do in Afghanistan, and of course no Democrat General was on to counter what he said. It was just the usual one sided biased segment with 2 Republicans and no Democrats that we expect from O'Reilly and his fill in stooges.
Then Huckabee did a segment on Michael Jackson, and the plans for his memorial service. Hey what happened to the media is over covering the story, Goldberg and Juan both agreed the media was reporting it too much last night. Then the very next night you have 2 segments about him on the Factor alone, can you spell hypocrisy. Later in the show Huckabee had a 2nd segment on Michael Jackson. So it's clear they do not practice what they preach.
Then the best of is it legal, is that even possible, most of it is just tabloid crap, so it's a stretch to call any of it the best of anything. Basically it was old clips put together of Lis Wiehl and Megyn kelly, boring re-runs. Then some tabloid story about a pet python that got out of its cage and strangled a 2-year-old infant in Florida. Huckabee said the guy should not be prosecuted because it was his son, and that will haunt him the rest of his life, which is enough punishment. I bet O'Reilly would disagree, he would probably want to give the guy 10 years.
Then Huckabee had the 2nd Michael Jackson segment with Billboard's Bill Werde, he asked about Michael Jackson's future earning power. The 2nd Jackson segment was added, even though the night before Goldberg and Williams complained that the media was over covering the story, and it was not journalism, what a bunch of hypocrites. If it's getting ratings they will cover it, to hell with the journalism value, it's all about the ratings, especially on the Factor, just admit it.
They (O'Reilly, Goldberg, Williams, etc.) preach all this garbage about journalism and journalistic integrity, and complain that the rest of the media is over covering the Jackson story for ratings, or ignoring important stories for partisan reasons, then FOX and O'Reilly do the same damn thing. FOX and Greta are covering it non-stop, just as much or more, than anyone else. And O'Reilly reports on it every night too, sometimes doing 2 segments on it.
They are all just a bunch of ratings whores, all of them, especially O'Reilly, and to hell with actual journalism. Basically they are just a bunch of right-wing clowns who shoot their mouth off about things the media is doing, when they are also doing the same damn things.
Glenn Beck Proves His Ignorance & His Hypocrisy
By: Steve - July 2, 2009 - 1:30pm
I know this is www.oreilly-sucks.com, but since Glenn Beck is a regular on the Factor, I think it is ok to show what a giant right-wing idiot he is, and show people why you should never believe anything this moron says.
Yesterday on his FOX News show, Beck was talking with the Republican Senator Jim DeMint, and he said the following:
Beck: I will tell you that I -- we discussed this on the radio program earlier today, that, um, a lot of people are calling this, where was it? In the Washington Examiner today. That they -- that people are saying that "Cap and Trade" is "Cap and Traitor". They're actually -- people are starting to view people -- both Republicans and Democrat -- as traitors to the country. Which I think is over the top. That's a very specific definition.
Beck is complaining about some Republicans calling it cap and traitor, instead of cap and trade, he said it's wrong, and over the top. Remember this is Glenn Beck saying that, on his tv show.
What's funny is just 24 hours before he said that, Beck was running a reward poster on his show naming the eight Republicans who voted for the bill "Cap and Traitors." His guest, Kevin Mooney of the Washington Examiner, who called them "traitors" too.
So one day he supports calling them cap and traitors, and even has the guy who wrote the article on his show to talk about it. Then the very next day he claims it is wrong and over the top to call them cap and traitors, when he had just done the same thing, the day before.
He also had another O'Reilly favorite, Michael Scheuer on to talk about Illegal immigration. And this right-wing nut said we need Osama Bin Laden to blow up a nuclear bomb in America to make the Obama administration to get serious about National Security and protecting the border. This nut Scheuer is a Factor regular, and O'Reilly puts him on alone all the time to give him political analysis.
On last night's Glenn Beck show, Beck had retired CIA veteran Michael Scheuer on to discuss guns, the Mexico border and Obama's plan to send unarmed volunteers to protect our borders. After about 6 minutes of meaningless chatter, the conversation took a dangerous turn.
BECK: Do you really, honestly believe that we have come to a place to where those very senior people in the highest offices of the land...Congress and the White House really will not do the right thing in the end, that they won't see the error of their ways?Then Scheuer said this:
SCHEUER: No sir, they will not....the only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States, because, he said, the politicians in Washington prize their office and the praise of the media and the Europeans.
SCHEUER: Only Osama can execute an attack which will force Americans to demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently and with as much violence as necessary as Beck nods in approval of Scheuer's comments.
Now imagine if a Democrat said that while Bush was in office, O'Reilly and Beck would call for the FBI to cuff him and stuff him, and call the guy an America hating traitor. But when a Republican says it with a Democrat president, Beck agrees with him and takes the guy serious.
They openly showcase their deranged opinions by suggesting an attack will HELP the country!
So let me get this straight, Bin Laden will HELP the country by attacking it? And Scheuer claims this is not just one solution, but the best solution? So he is telling us that a terrorist can HELP America by killing thousands or millions more of our citizens? Are you kidding me? How come this guy is not at Gitmo?
And this is the guy O'Reilly goes to on a regular basis for analysis of foreign and domestic political issues, Michael Scheuer is a regular on the Factor, and O'Reilly loves the guy.
The Wednesday 7-1-09 O'Reilly/Williams Factor Review
By: Steve - July 2, 2009 - 10:30am
Juan Williams filled in for O'Reilly so there was no TPM. Juan made the Obama agenda the top story and had the White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton on to discuss it. They talked about health care, cap and trade, etc. Juan sounded just like O'Reilly, he hammered Obama on every plan he has, and did not have one good thing to say about anything Obama plans to do. He asked a series of long questions to Burton with criticism of Obama in every question. Burton answered his right-wing spin questions, and it was pretty much just like O'Reilly was asking the questions. In fact, I would not be shocked to find out O'Reilly wrote the questions for him.
Juan is the so-called Democrat on FOX but he sounded more like Newt Gingrich than he did a Democrat. All his questions were full of Obama criticism and right-wing spin, just as if O'Reilly or Crowley were there asking them. It was just like having O'Reilly there, with just a different person to ask the questions. I would bet O'Reilly wrote those questions for him, because they sounded exactly like the questions O'Reilly would spin out. So if you thought the Factor would be any different with Juan Williams hosting you would be wrong. It was no different than if O'Reilly had been there, except without all the screaming and yelling.
Then Juan had the Barack & a Hard Place segment with Alan Colmes and Monica Crowley. Right off the bat Juan talked about the possible Obama health care plan that MIGHT include some taxes, Juan called Obama a hypocrite, when the plan is not even out yet, and we do not know if it will include any taxes or not. So how can he be a hypocrite if the plan is not even out yet, answer that Juan. Juan sounded just like O'Reilly, accusing Obama of being a hypocrite over something that has not even happened yet. Colmes pointed out that the plan is not out yet so you can not call him a hypocrite, so Juan goes to Crowley and of course she agreed with him and trashed Obama some more. It was just like watching O'Reilly, no difference at all.
Juan also trashed Obama on the cap and trade plan, he spun out all this right-wing propaganda about what will happen if it passes, just like any other Republican would do. He used the GOP talking points on it, the lies about how much it will raise your taxes, and the lies about how you will have to green your house before you can sell it. It's all right-wing lies to drum up public opposition to the plan. Colmes pointed out the advantages and reported at the most over time it MIGHT cost a family $175.00 a year more by 2020, which is not much, if it happens at all. And the green your house crap before you can sell it is just right-wing propaganda. Juan spun it all out just like O'Reilly would do, and if he is a Democrat I'm Babe Ruth.
After watching Juan spin out all this right-wing propaganda just as O'Reilly, Ingraham, or Crowley would have, I am no longer going to count him as a Democrat in the Factor guest list count. He has already admitted he is more conservative than liberal, and last night he confirmed that he is a Republican who pretends to be a Democrat on FOX. After what he did last night I can no longer count him as a Democrat, he is as much of a Republican as Crowley. In fact, he sounded just like her, and the two of them agree on almost everything. God job Juan, you just outed yourself, you might as well drop the Democrat label because you are a fraud, and we all know it now.
Then Bernie Goldberg was on to talk Global Warming and the Michael Jackson media coverage. Goldberg spun out some right-wing garbage about the mainstream media not reporting the other side of the Global Warming debate, and said they were hypocrites. When at least they have the other side on once in a while, FOX is the hypocrite, because they rarely ever do any Global Warming reports, and when they do it's always with some anti Global Warming guy who is paid by the oil or gas companies. The vast majority of Global Warming experts say it's real, and worse than we thought. The only people who deny it are right-wing nuts who support the oil and gas companies, and take money from them.
Goldberg said the Michael Jackson coverage is way too much, and for once I agree with him. The media gets a big story like this and beats it to death, they over report it for ratings. On this one we agree, too much Michael Jackson reporting. What's funny though is they complain about the media reporting it too much, when FOX is just as bad, if not worse than any of them. The Factor was even cancelled Thursday night to do non-stop MJ reporting, so they have no right to complain when they were just as guilty as everyone else. And of course neither Goldberg or Williams complained about the FOX over coverage of the Jackson story.
Then Juan played some old re-runs of O'Reilly reality check garbage, and called it the best of reality checks. It was basically clips of O'Reilly doing those stupid reality checks that have no reality and no check, just O'Reilly's spin on what he calls reality. Then Juan (the fake Democrat) pulled another GOP talking points spin job on the Obama job approval poll numbers. He cited the biased right-wing Rasmussen poll that has Obama showing a slight drop in job approval numbers and claims it means trouble for Obama. There is 2 problems with that, Rasmussen has biased polls that are always lower for Obama than any other poll, and only biased Republicans cite his polls. And the Gallup poll has Obama at 63% job approval, which is the same as it was a month ago, so there has not been much of a drop.
The fact that Juan used the Rasmussen poll, and only that one poll is just more proof that he is as much of a Republican as O'Reilly or Crowley. It's the very same thing O'Reilly does, he cherry picks one right-wing biased poll and claims it shows the Obama job approval numbers dropping. When all the other polls show no such drop, and they do not report what the other polls say. Having Williams host the show was pretty much the same as if Crowley or Ingraham had hosted it.
In the last segment Juan reported on the Sanford affair with the Democrat Alicia Menendez. She said Sanford is a joke and he should resign, I agree. Then Juan pimped some Factor gear for Billy and the show was over. Juan Williams proved that he is a Republican, who can spin out the GOP talking points just as good as Ingraham or Crowley did when they hosted. I would compare him to Monica Crowley, it was just the same as watching her host the show. Except he is not as good to look at.
The Tuesday 6-30-09 O'Reilly/Crowley Factor Review
By: Steve - July 1, 2009 - 9:30am
Monica Crowley was back again filling in for O'Reilly who is on vacation. She did not have a TPM, and went straight to the totally insane right-wing nut Glenn Beck. They talked about the Iraq security handover, and a little about Al Franken, very little, maybe 1 minute. The two of them praised Bush for making Iraq a Democratic country, and acted like it was a good thing. Ignoring the fact that the Iraq war was based on lies about WMD's that were never found, that it cost us about 1 Trillion dollars, and over 4,000 US troops died over those lies. They ignored all that, as good little Republican stooges always do.
Not to mention we will not know if Iraq actually turns into a Democratic country for years, and who knows how long we will have troops there. The whole thing has been a disaster, yet these two morons acted like it was a big success, and Bush was right to start the war. When most experts say it was an un-needed war and a giant disaster. Then they talked about Al Franken, Beck said the people are crazy for making Al Franken a Senator. And that was about it, they spent a whole minute on the Franken story, now imagine how much time they would spend on it if Coleman had won.
And btw, O'Reilly said if anyone has evidence FOX News is biased send it to him and he will report it. If you watched the news yesterday you had the evidence. When Franken had his press conference yesterday afternoon CNN covered it live, MSNBC covered live, FOX News, never covered it at all. I switched to FOX and they had Glenn Beck on with some other right-wing nut and they were talking about Mexico and illegal immigration. Not once did they cut away from the Beck show and cover any of the Franken press conference. There it is Billy, we have 3 cable news networks, 2 of them covered the Franken press conference, 1 did not, so there is the bias you asked for.
I watched FOX News off and on all day, and they barely even mentioned that Franken won. Shep mentioned it for about 1 minute, about half way through his show, he had one guest to discuss it, a FOX News reporter. They just said Franken won and Coleman conceded, and that was it. The other 2 cable networks had full coverage of the Franken win, with actual guests and a real discussion of the story. FOX just said oh btw Franken won, then moved on to other news as fast as possible with no guests and pretty much no reporting on it.
Monday night Crowley had a pretty balanced guest list, 6 Republicans and 3 Democrats. Then Tuesday night she pulled an O'Reilly, she had 7 Republican guests and 0 Democrats, none, zip, zero. It was all Republicans all the time. Including her, it was basically an hour long right-wing propaganda all spin zone. It was just like having O'Reilly there, except a Blonde right-winger was in his place.
Beck got 2 segments, why? Glenn Beck is nuts, and I am serious. If you believe one word he says about anything you should be locked up for being stupid in public. Beck is a total 100% right-wing spin doctor, and virtually nothing he says is true. It's all his spin on an issue, and it's done to make Obama and the Democrats look bad. Even when he is caught lying he never does a correction, and denies he lied, just like O'Reilly does, they are like twin brothers. And if you believe anything this fool says I feel sorry for you.
Crowley loaded the show with all Republicans, on the day Al Franken won 5 to 0 in the Minnesota Supreme Court. Not one Democrat was on the show to discuss the story, it was mentioned one time with Beck, he trashed Franken and all the people who voted for him, then they moved on to another story. If that's journalism I'm Kobe Bryant. It's called bias, and ignoring the journalism. The Factor is the #1 news show on cable, and they pretty much ignored the entire Franken story, even though it was the biggest news of the day.
And yet O'Reilly says bias at FOX, what bias. Right there it is, open your eyes, your own show ignored the biggest news story of the day, and your own news network did not even cover the Franken press conference. That's bias Billy, ignoring a news story for partisan reasons is bias, you even said so yourself, then you do the same damn thing. And you call it a hard news show with a no spin zone. Which is just ridiculous, it's a soft news show, with all right-wing spin.
