Skip to comments.O'Reilly Blasts Hollywood's Goebbels

"Give Fox News Channel star Bill O'Reilly credit for even attending Monday night's lefty celeb-glutted premiere of Michael Moore's 'Fahrenheit 9/11' - even if he walked out of the 110-minute Bush-bashing movie halfway through," the New York Daily News said today.
The paper reports that on his radio program last week, O'Reilly compared Moore to the National Socialists' master of deceit: "Joseph Goebbels was the minister of propaganda for the Nazi regime and whose very famous quote was, 'If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.'"
But when Moore caught O'Reilly escaping the schlockumentary early, "O'Reilly blushed, shook Moore's hand and muttered something about having to 'tape something,' and then slunk off into the night," according to the Daily News.
Apparently the media star didn't miss much. Even though the audience was packed with such usual suspects as Tom Brokaw, felonious Democrat diva Martha Stewart, Mike Myers and New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the applause afterward lasted only 30 seconds and many people refused to stand, the New York Post reported today.
I'm sticking with Lumpy Riefenstahl.
I watched O'Reilly last night and thats not quite how he left the movie. He said that the movie started 40 minutes late and he had to leave early due to previous plans. However he said that he did meet Moore out front and had a conversation with him and Moore supposedly said he would come on the Factor for a interview. I hope Moore does go on and I hope Bill tears him a new ass....
My thought too.
Imagine that, Moore LIED!!!
Just like he lied about his conversation with Fred Barnes.
He is a serial revisionist.
Oh, crap. I hope Mike Myers doesn't open his trap and force me to boycott him, too.
I musta missed something during my shower:
Who's Lumpy Riefenstahl?
What's with O'Reilly? At first I thought he was a conservative. Then he did some Bush bashing (or so I thought). Changed my opinion. Followed by showing some support for the Pres. Haven't changed my opinion yet. Now he pulls this stunt. Still haven't changed my opinion but would like to know what side his cookie crumbles on.
O'Reilly is a self proclaimed "Independent". Though I have watched him for years, I believe that I have found him to be more Conservative, than Liberal. However, every once in a while he goes off the deep end and I have to change the channel. But I do respect the way that he goes after people, unlike any other host I have seen. He is like a bull and wont let you "spin" your way out of something. Overall, I like the guy.
"But when Moore caught O'Reilly escaping the schlockumentary early, "O'Reilly blushed, shook Moore's hand and muttered something about having to 'tape something,' and then slunk off into the night," according to the Daily News."
Oh yes, he is such a shrinking violet. Always avoiding confrontation.
dead, please correct me if I am wrong, but I think I am right...
That's the way he told it, and knowing what little I do about S'Moores, it's probably the truth.
Lumpy was Wally's fat loser friend on "Leave it to Beaver" and Leni Reifenstahl was the propaganda filmmaker for the Nazi Party.
Roll them into one, and you have Michael Moore, though his technical skills as a filmmaker are more Lumpy the Leni.
Leni passed within the last 2 years. You are correct.
Cool, thanks for the verification.
"Lumpy is a play on words for Leni. IIRC, Leni Riefenstahl, was a noted film director of her day. She produced many films for the Hitler/Nazi propoganda machine.
dead, please correct me if I am wrong, but I think I am right..."
Most noted for her classic 1934 "Triumph Of The Will".
What a terrible thing to say about Goebbels. He was a far more honorable and decent man than that bloviated flatulant blob of walking vomit.
I hope he has Ann Coulter on at the same time. Wouldn't that be fun to watch?!
I seldom tune into O'Reilly anymore, but I did see Moore on the Factor once, probably after the Columbine mockumentary. It was not that memorable. Moore is smart enough not to get into a slugfest with O'Reilly. They both sorta danced around throwing little jabs. Basically, a yawner.
I'd call him some kind of ersatz "Populist". I am running hot and cold on ol' Mr. Bill.
That's right, I recall now. Thanks!
I think it is also fitting to remind people that Leni Riefenstahl received a special rememberence at this year's Oscars ceremony (she was among the dead film stars tributed).
That a nazi propagandist (who's most famous film deified Adolph Hitler) was honored at the Oscars tells us all we need to know about Michael Moore's chances for future awards.
You're correct. She directed "Triumph of the Will." It is a Nazi propaganda film of the Nuremberg rallies.
I know that I have walked out of a handful of films and not missed a thing. Even Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel would walk out (I think they stated that if nothing has happened in the first 20 minutes, nothing is going to happen although I have found this is not always so).
O'Reilly's idea of being 'independent' is intermittently alternating his attacks on the right and the left. I don't respect his waffling in this sense, but occasionally it can be a lot of fun watching him call people to task on their miscues.
That's the Daily Snooze for ya.
And those folks were applauding the people for not standing.
On CD #1, Reagan talks in a February 1975 about how under the guise of a "documentary", one of the Big 3 television networks produced "Cuba - The People". This documentary claimed that the Cuba of that day was well off thanks to Castro, etc.
From Ronald Reagan in February 1975:
"These days, when we're flooded with so many words on every subject, we need to check out some of those words before we accept them as gospel, including the use of the word 'documentary'."
Moore is a hack, who his is just disingenuous enough to call his "work" a documentary. He is intellectually corrupt - what more is there to say?
<< Oh, crap. I hope Mike Myers doesn't open his trap and force me to boycott him, too.

I musta missed somethin' during both your showers:
Who's Mike Myers?
