O'Reilly Caught Lying About The Media & Obama
By: Steve - July 11, 2012 - 10:00am
During a segment with the biased right-wing hack Bernie Goldberg on Monday night O'Reilly said this about the media:
O'REILLY: "What Bernie and I are trying to get across every week is that many powerful people in the media don't want to tell the truth to the people. It's more important to them to get their ideology in play than to let the folks know what the truth is, and that's a total change from what the media was thirty or forty years ago."
And on June 23rd O'Reilly complained about the liberal bias in the media saying this:
"The liberal media wants to re-elect President Obama."
Bernie Goldberg said this:
GOLDBERG: "From time to time the media will be tough on Barack Obama. But if there's a suggestion that this may be the beginning of a historic change in how the so-called mainstream media treats liberal Democrats like Barack Obama, no way is that happening!"
And that is all right-wing lies, spin, and propaganda from O'Reilly and Goldberg. Because findings from a new media study released in June by PEW show that the Republican Mitt Romney has received substantially better press coverage this year than President Obama.
That kind of propaganda has become as natural as breathing for a conservative movement that's built its base since 2008 around the bogus claim that the liberal media has rolled over for Obama.
Notice that O'Reilly has never said a word about this study, and never will. But when the right-wing biased MRC puts out a study saying the media is liberal, O'Reilly reports it that day and reports on it on future shows after that.
And btw, PEW is not partisan, O'Reilly even cites their polls and studies once in a while, so he believes they are honest. But he never once reported this study, because it kills his spin that the media is liberal and they want to help Obama get re-elected.
The so-called liberal media accusation has been a cornerstone to American conservatism for forty years. It's actually grown into a cottage industry that pays the bills for talk radio, fills endless hours of commentary on Fox News, and produces content for right-wing authors like Goldberg, Ingraham, O'Reilly, and Ann Coulter.
Bernie Goldberg even wrote a book claiming the media is liberal and that they slobber all over Obama. Not to mention, O'Reilly has him on the Factor every week for a media bias segment, where the two of them do nothing but complain about liberal bias in the media.
While never saying anything about conservative bias in the media, especially by Fox or the conservative Media Research Center.
What they do is cherry pick a few examples of liberal bias and then claim it is like that everywhere. Which is just laughable, but they put it out as fact anyway, with nobody from the other side to give the counter point. Goldberg is a right-wing stooge who does nothing but spin out lies and right-wing propaganda, and O'Reilly let's him do it.
They claim Obama is benefiting from warm praise and soft coverage. Meaning, now is the time for conservatives to prove definitively that their claims about the slanted press are true. Except that is all lies.
Because the results of the latest survey from the Pew Research Center Project for Excellence in Journalism should not come as a shock. If you look at Pew's research, it shows the so-called liberal media has not given President Obama one single week of positive news coverage in the ten months since Pew started their ongoing study.
Now think about this, conservatives themselves have cited Pew reports to bolster their claims about a liberally biasd media.
For example, last October Pew released a media survey that looked at news coverage stretching back to May. Its conclusion was that Obama had been on the receiving end of "unrelentingly negative" coverage:
The assessments of the president in the media were substantially more negative than positive in every one of the 23 weeks studied. In no one week during these five months was more than 10% of the coverage about the President positive in tone.
In 2011, only Newt Gingrich, whose campaign was crashing at the time, received more negative press than Obama did during the time frame studied by Pew. And you never hear a word about any of this from O'Reilly or Bernie Goldberg, ever, not one word.
In fact, Pew reported that between May and October, "negative assessments of Obama have outweighed positive by a ratio of almost 4-to-1."
As for Pew's latest findings, which covered from January to early April, the trend continued:
Of all the presidential candidates studied in this report, only one figure did not have a single week in 2012 when positive coverage exceeded negative coverage, the Democrat Barack Obama.
The Pew findings are clear: The Democratic president Barack Obama has been hammered with negative press coverage.
And while it was all happening the insane Bill O'Reilly, Bernie Goldberg, and all of Fox News have been saying the media is in bed with Obama and they are helping him to get re-elected.
Which is just ridiculous, and the Pew poll proves it. Not only does it prove that, the Pew poll also proves that O'Reilly and Goldberg are both crazy right-wing liars.
