O'Reilly Ignores MRC Calling For Sharpton Firing
By: Steve - April 30, 2012 - 10:00am
When liberal groups called for advertisers to stop buying ads on the Rush Limbaugh radio show after he called Sandra Fluke a slut, O'Reilly flipped out and reported it for a week. O'Reilly called them un-American and said it was wrong, he even said the left want to deny Limbaugh his free speech rights, when all they did was call for sponsors to stop buying ads on his show.
And now the conservative (MRC) Media Research Center is calling for MSNBC to fire Al Sharpton and Ed Schultz. Here is a direct quote from their website www.cleanhouseatnbc.org:
MSNBC head, Phil Griffin and his boss Comcast CEO Brian Roberts have ignored calls to do the responsible thing and end the hate-fest that is their primetime cable lineup. We cannot back down, and Brent is calling on every member of the MRC Action team to contact Comcast's Board of Directors and insist that they send Phil Griffin, Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton packing!And yet, O'Reilly has said nothing, even though they are actually calling for Sharpton and Schultz to be fired. All the left did was call for his sponsors to stop buying ad time, and O'Reilly called them un-American.
-- The once great reputation of NBC News is being tarnished by hate-speech coming from people like Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton
-- No respectable news organization would put people like this on-air.
-- I thought when Comcast bought NBC, you would clean up the hateful speech and divisiveness on MSNBC, but it has gotten even worse.
-- You should all be ashamed of what the NBC brand has become.
-- Phil Griffin, Al Sharpton and Ed Schultz should be fired immediately
But when his right-wing friends at the MRC call for Sharpton and Schultz to be fired, O'Reilly is silent. He does not report it, he does not say the right wants to deny their free speech rights, he does not say it is wrong, and he does not call them un-American.
Not to mention, MRC is listed as a 501 (c-3) non-partisan tax exempt group. Which is just laughable, because they are as biased as Hannity or anyone at Fox News. But O'Reilly never calls for their tax exampt status to be revoked, as he does with the liberal Media Matters. They do not pay any taxes, and they are basically an arm of the RNC, but O'Reilly says nothing about it.
Proving that Bill O'Reilly is a 100% biased right-wing partisan hack. If he were a real non-partisan Independent with a no spin zone (as he claims) he would report what the MRC is doing, and call them un-American too. Instead he ignores it to help them, and to cover it up so the people do not know what they are doing.
