O'Reilly: I Have Seen the Reagan Movie...
O'Reilly Factor | 11/04/03 | CWB

Posted on 11/03/2003 5:08:29 PM PST by cwb

...and CBS is in big, big trouble. Coming up next for those interested. Should be interesting since O'Reilly has taken a moderate position until viewing the movie.

Says it's a cartoon...Judy Davis is "over the top" and comes off like Joan Crawford in Mommie Dearest...Reagan makes cartoon characters look like Ph.D.'s by contrast.

He blasted it on the radio today. He said it was cartoonish and juvenile. He said instead of producing an accurate piece they were making characatures, and if CBS broadcasted it, there would be hell to pay - that people would be mad, and they wouldn't forget it.

I don't remember this quote word-for-word, but they have a scene where Reagan proposes to Nancy by saying something like, "Will you marry me, Mommy?"

BS says she has never read Brolin's (Mr Streisand) copy of the script, or seen any clips, or even been told 1 line by Brolin... ever.

And her friends and former bus partners just happen to have produced the movie.

Silent partner, or else she would not be telling absurd lies to hide it.

Of course, he also said he wouldn't 'join' the internet boycott because he's not sure it is fair. What a fool. He's just mad he didn't think of the boycott. After all, boycotting France was his idea. /sarcasm

He is interviewing Monica Collins, tv/movie critic for the Boston Herald, who thinks it is an ok presentation. She is defending it.

David Nelson, Asset Manager (not sure for whom), is also defending it.

Neither think it will hurt CBS in any way.

Excellent point. O'Reilly is extremely inconsistent, and as such, has been a major disappointment to me.

I'm seeing more and more that it's all about him, despite his protestations to the contrary.

There's talk that if we keep on giving hell to CBS about the Reagans movie, they'll pass it on to Showtime, and bury it under the grave of premium cable (that's what I saw on MSNBC this afternoon, anyway)

Yep...and its amazing that these all-knowing media consultants are completely discounting the power of the people over this very flammable event. Just take a look at some of the Box-Office and record sales numbers over those celebrites who refuse to "shut up and sing...or act." Clooney and Penn aren't exactly lighting things up.

Agree with you. I used to love Bill. But he's become so schizophrenic in his views, its like watching a hamster pace across a cage and then jump his exercise wheel. He's so afraid of the 'conservative' label, that I think he purposely takes the left side just to avoid that oh so icky stereotype.

CBS dumping it off the USA's airwave is ok but the real test is if it does not go to the foreign distribution.

Procter and Gamble are having a frickin' heart attack right now.

By the way,this may be Procter and Gambles' email for comments.

CBS did this precisely because Reagan is dying and soon enough there will be remembrances. CBS is trying to pre-empt another generation hearing about Reagan's great achievements by seeding them with the thought that he was a stupid, oafish bigot whose shrill wife maniplated him like a puppet.

Just play some of Reagan's great speeches for 2 hours -- now that would be inspiring.

CBS has their back against the wall on this, thanks to those who have been protesting it to them, to the potential sponsors and to the media. We are winning. But we can't let up.

Write or FAX Moonves, Redstone, et al and keep the pressure up. They are on the run.

Question: How do the networks arrive at their "ratings" figures? Is it all through Nielsen and other such companies with direct hook ups to selected TVs or do they do surveys or a combination?

You know, we all have joked and vented and blamed and ignored and commented and criticized this "movie" ...in one way or another, myself included.

But seriously, this really ticks me off. I just cannot take this in stride like all that other evil crap the liberals have been spewing for 30 years.

Why this? Why is this my line in the sand? Why is my Chrisitian Spirit challenged to maintain civility in light of this particular event?

Maybe because I remember being a young kid, just out of college, making $13,000 a year, looking at 20% interest rates, 15%+ mortagage rates, thinking I'm NEVER going to have a chance like my parents did.

Maybe because I remember that sinking feeling of hopelessness seeing our hostages being paraded around in Tehran like animals...nobody doing anything to save those poor people...the disaster "rescue attempt" in the desert...etc.

Maybe because I actually wondered at one point if our time (America) was over and those God-less Russians and Chinese were going to rule us one day, soon. That my Dad fought in WWII for...for THIS?.

And then came...

PRESIDENT REAGAN.

All that changed...ALL OF THAT! Confidence in America came back, the stranglehold the unions had on our businesses disappeared, I got a HUGE RAISE [can you spell t-a-x-c-u-t], the Commies were reeling, our military was on the rebound, the stock market rocketed UP, New York City began to recover [my home at the time], it was OK again to be a businessman, make money, be patriotic, talk about God, care about family.

The 60's and 70's were pronounced OVER AND OUT!

I love President Reagan as much as I love any mortal man that ever lived. He means the world to me and many people my age who were there and who remember!

How these evil and sick people (CBS, Moonves, Streisand, etc), and yes, they are evil and sick, could do this to a former President of the greatest nation on earth, our home, our beloved America, while he is dying a slow, sad, tragic death, with his undyingly loyal wife at his side the entire time...he can't defend himself, he shouldn't even have to.

It's beyond despicable.

Today I refered to every Democrat I know, to their face, as being mean. I will never refer to Democrats again, whether in person, third person, email, voice mail, snail mail, quail mail...without saying it as one word...

MEANDEMOCRAT

Rant over. Thanks to anyone who read this far.

God Bless America and God Bless President Reagan.
