Skip to comments.Kos v O'Reilly (O'Reilly forces JetBlue to drop support for DailyKos convention)
Posted on 07/22/2007 1:55:04 PM PDT by AKSurprise
Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has all but declared war against the DailyKos website, writing about a "vicious far-left web site called the DailyKos, one of the worst examples of hatred America has to offer."
O'Reilly also said of some of the postings on DailyKos: "this is hate of the worst order. It's like the Ku Klux Klan. It's like the Nazi party. There's no difference here. People should die."
Today came news that O'Reilly's push against airline JetBlue for sponsoring the YearlyKos convention worked -- and the company dropped its official sponsorship of Kos's yearly blogger convention.
YearlyKos will be addressed this year House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and DNC Chairman Howard Dean, as well as Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, former Sen. John Edwards, D-NC, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson.
And loads of others.
Writes Kos: "Anyone who tries to claim this is a 'hate' gathering is saying, essentially, that the entire Democratic Party is a 'hate' party. And sure, there are plenty of rabid crazies on the other side that would make such a claim, but no reasonable person will think that. And that's the key -- anyone who claims this event is anything but a celebration of the best the Democratic Party has to offer is simply, to put it mildly, blinded by partisan rage and completely out-of-touch with reality."
The Dodd campaign and others have used the opportunity to beef up their netroots cred by slamming O'Reilly.
To Kos, of course its a hate gathering, and the limp-wristed liberal politicians of the Dhimmicrat party are all haters, and we all know "Haters Never Prosper". They can't win the 2008 elections on hate, and weakness. I guarantee there will be no Dhimmicrat in the White House come next January.
Poor little Kosmanauts will now have to fly Aeroflot.
Wow! The Rats listen to their bloggers better than the right does to theirs.
“celebration of the best the Democratic Party has to offer...”
Indeed it is.
If any lurkers out there think that O’Reilly is exaggerating when he calls these leftist websites hate fests, I invite you to go peruse Daily Kos, Democraticunderground, and other websites or websties from the other side of the political spectrum. You will find out that these people are foul-mouthed haters.
My sentiments exactly. I don’t care for him much, but can applaud him when he is effective. The thing about BOR is he can dish it out, but he can’t take it. Still, I’d take him over Kos any day. Interesting that Kos couldn’t acknowledge there are crazies on his lefty site, choosing to point to the messenger, instead.
“You will find out that these people are foul-mouthed haters.”
That’s putting it diplomatically. In fact, they are agents of treason.
Well, that's exactly what I'm saying you commie scumbag.
Good job O’Reilly!
You said it, Kos. The party of hate. All anyone has to do is READ what you wackos write.
As for Jake Tapper (formerly of Salon) now writing for ABC 'News', blah, blah, blah, what bias?! /s
Pretty much sums it up quite nicely.
Lotta’ Jew-baiters on Kos(omol)...
o’reilly? I don’t care
Daily, weekly, monthly whatever kos??? irrelevant
jet blue? c’mon if you have to fly, you just try to get the best fair and the shortest trip, beyond that.......who cares?
combine all 3??
and i thought C-Span was uninteresting..............
A FReeper reported that the DU'ers were posting that they "wished our soldiers would die" those posts were eventually deleted.
Jake Tapper is ABC News' Senior National Correspondent (formerly of Salon) based in the network's Washington bureau.
Jake Tapper is the Washington correspondent for Salon News and a former employee of Handgun Control Inc.
Tapper broke a number of stories including then-Governor George W. Bush's controversial trip to Bob Jones University during the 2002 presidential campaign.
Tapper is the author of "Down and Dirty: The Plot to Steal the Presidency," (Little, Brown) a look at the Florida recount
ABC Hires Liberal Pundit/Reporter Jake Tapper as a Correspondent
Barely a month after FOB Rick Kaplan re-joined ABC News from CNN as Executive Vice President, ABC has hired Jake Tapper, a liberal pundit and a political reporter for the liberal Salon.com, as a Washington correspondent. In 2001, Tapper penned Down and Dirty: The Plot to Steal the Presidency, a book which publisher Little Brown promoted as delivering an assessment of George W. Bush as a brilliant schmoozer and deft liar with the intellectual inquisitiveness of the average fern.
The loser, the truly despicable (and bizarre, psychopathic, just plain evil) "Kos." He doesn't look like he gets too many (human) dates.
Yeah, that's what I'm saying. My mother told me not to tell lies.
Every death should be on the front page (2.70 / 40)
Let the people see what war is like. This isn’t an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush’s folly.
That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren’t in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.
