Why did he stop on radio??
Would love to read your thoughts...
O’Reilly’s explanation: I work too many hours.
Everybody else’s explanation: His ratings sucked.
On his TV show on Wednesday, he claimed he couldn’t compete with Rush. there are markets where he is on opposite Rush.
I would say O’Reilly’s radio show sucked but then again so does his TV show yet it still beats everybody.
He waffles and people can sense he’s not saying what he believes or not believing what he says. He doesn’t get outraged by the outrageous. Makes you wonder what he believes.
Because he sucks bad enough on TV alone?
He is a populist.
He never tries to change minds on tough questions.
I’ll take “His Ratings Sucked” for $200, Alex.
You said — “Makes you wonder what he believes.”
Ummm..., making more money?
[ ... seeing clearly now...? :-) ... ]
Whether you like them, or not, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity are radio guys who started in the medium and paid their dues for years. It’s not O’Reilly’s fault, but he was a TV guy. He just jumped into radio. Guess what, radio isn’t a medium where all conservatives succeed, no matter what. It shouldn’t be a surprise that radio guys, who live and breath that medium, do well in radio. You would ask plastic surgeon to do you heart surgery, would you?
That said, Mark Levin has always been a FRiend to this website and an avid supporter of our military and first responders.
O'Reilly is a foaming-at-the-mouth enemy to this website and the Conservative movement, and Mark is willing to publicly defy O'Reilly for disrespecting and attacking the Conservative movement.
Listen from 92:48 to 100:19 here:
O'Reilly LIED about and trashed Free Republic, and he compared our website to Daily Kos:
O'Reilly trashed Sean, Mark and Rush:
But, Mark refused to take O'Reilly's BS and fired back:
O'Reilly is a classless, worthless POS.
He was born in 1949
Correction; O'Reilly sucks.
I dunno why he’s even on TV any more.
Beck is beating him like a rented mule.
Two words: Rush Limbaugh.
Exactly my thoughts.
OReilly is a master of spin fence rider.
We now have Laura Ingraham which is a major improvement in all categorys, but I still listen to Rush.
Why did Rush stop doing his television show?
Well not sure what his ratings were like, but probably not anywhere near to O'Reilly's satisfaction to continue on radio, note that he only had a 2 hour radio show, whereas Hannity and Beck both do 3 hours on the radio in addition to their one hour television shows so not sure why they're able to do it but not O'Reilly.
