Posted on 09/02/2008 6:27:17 PM PDT by Laverne
Please Boycott FNC at 8PM on Thursday Night. O'Reilly, the ultimate panderer will interview Obama on the VERY NIGHT THAT MCCAIN ACCEPTS THE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION.
It is not only unprecedented for the opposing candidate to intrude on the acceptance speech, it is beyond belief that FNC would permit Mr. O'Reilly to pander and kiss up to Obama.
BOYCOTT 8PM HOUR ON THURSDAY NIGHT.
It was stated that it will be NEXT WEEK. Not this Thursday
Bill has been trashing the MSM advocacy of Obama. Might he ask some serious questions of The One in a way that nobody else has had the journalistic huevos to do?
Bill is and always has been a suck up. Most nights I do boycott him.
I will have to say that I’m alittle surprised he is falling for this after all this time of trying to get bambi on his show. Pretty pathetic.
I cannot boycott a show I do not watch anyway.
Though i’m not a huge fan of O’Reilly, I will watch the interview. There’s a chance he’ll actually ask some tough questions. If he throws him softballs, or let’s him escape without answering a tough question, then I’ll turn the channel.
He just announced on his show that it will be this Thursday.
There’s always C-SPAM.
if not, he will be committing “political malpractice”
I boycott O’Reilly pretty much every night.
I don’t believe this.
Somebody just told Obambi his speech never included the platform so O’Reilly is going to give him a do-over?
During the convention? What horse puckey is this?
Thursday Sept 4 2008 per o’reilly’s web site
i always get “next thursday”
confused with the next thursday,
unless of course, they say “next thursday, next week”.
then, i’m confused not.
I AM FURIOUS ABOUT THIS!!
E-MAIL O’REILLY AND TELL HIM ABOUT IT!
Don’t boycott him-tell him not to throw softballs. Give him a list of questions to ask Osama.
My email to O’Reilly:
I’ve been a loyal viewer of the Factor for the past 7 years. IF you throw Obama softballs during your upcoming interview, you can consider me a former viewer. This guy has gotten a free pass from the entire mainstream, leftwing media establishment for far too long. I wanted to pass you some questions that perhaps you might use because they’re relevant to people being informed about their choice in November. Thank you sir.
1.) Senator Obama, when and under what cirumstances did you first meet William Ayers?
2.) Records from the Chicago Annenberg Foundation show that domestic terrorist William Ayers, along with Anne Hallett, co-founded the organization in 1995. How then, and when, did you come to be elected as Chariman of the Board for the Chicago Annenberg Foundation? Who appointed you to this important position of this new organization?
3.) You told the American people that Bill Ayers was simply “a guy who lives in my neighborhood.” Yet recently released and reviewed documents for the CAC show a close working relationship between the CAC Board, which you presided over, and the Collaborative, which William Ayers presided over. Can you expound on the extent of your interaction with Ayers while working at the CAC?
3b.) Can you explain why over $100 million was spent on the CAC with little to no positive results (according to CAC records) to show for?
4.) Given Ayers’ radical views on education reform (”education is the motor-force of revolution”), shouldn’t one conclude that you share somewhat similar views, since you served as Chairman of the Board for the organization he started?
4b.) In 2007, Linda Darling-Hammond, a prominent professor at the Stanford University School of Education, in an article in The Nation, endorsed the idea of “education debt,”-defined as the repayment of centuries of “education debt” that allegedly is owed to people of color as a result of slavery and discrimination. This idea is also endorsed by William Ayers. In late 2007, Darling-Hammond was named an education advisor to your campaign. In February 2008, Darling-Hammond issued a blueprint for education reform by the next President that set as its #1 priority the repayment of the “education debt,” as proposed originally by University of Wisconsin Professor and former President of the American Education Research Association (AERA), Gloria Ladson-Billings.
Senator Obama, can you explain to the American people exactly what education debt is and if you espouse this idea? If not, why do you have someone that eschews such radical ideas serving as an education advisor for your campaign?
5.) According to CAC records, in 1995, an Implementation Grant of $175,000 was given to the Small Schools Workshop, headed by Mike Klonsky. The Workshop had been founded by Bill Ayers in 1992 and was headed up by his former Weather Underground comrade and hardcore Maoist, Mike Klonsky. What is the extent of your relationship with this former Weather Underground collaborator of William Ayers? What role did he play in the CAC?
5b.) Klonsky also hosts his own blog on your official website. Is this something you’re proud of Senator?
6.) You and Ayers also served together on the board of the Woods Fund. Do you mean to say, that you never had any formal relationship with Ayers during all your time as Chairman of the CAC and while serving on the Woods Fund board?
7.) Can you explain why your campaign for the Illinois senate was kicked off at a meet and greet at the home of William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn in 1995? Was this before or after you were named Chairman of the Board for the CAC?
8.) Your campaign manager David Axelrod said you have a friendly relationship with Ayers. Why would Axelrod come to such a conclusion if you have no relationship with Ayers?
9.) Before the CAC was dissolved in 2001, you stayed with the organization as a consultant of sorts. Do you know who the donor of the CAC records to the University of Illinois-Chicago library is, that initially restricted access to these files at the Richard Daley Library? Do you know why access to these records, which are currently being examined, was initially restricted after Stanley Kurtz requested them?
9b.) Senator Obama, can you explain why your campaign would contact the Department of Justice (twice), in regards to trying to prevent a perfectly legal advertisment from being run by the American Issues Project, regarding your relationship with Bill Ayers?
10.) Senator Obama, would you like to apologize to the American people for being dishonest about the extent of your relationship with Bill Ayers and admit that you made some very poor decisions in judgment to associate yourself with this self admitting, domestic terrorist?
In a 9/2/2008 article, Cliff Kincaid says that the mentor you refer to as “Frank” in your book The Audacity of Hope, will soon be reveraled to have been the subject of an FBI investigation for 19 years and that his FBI file is 600 pages long. Davis was included in the FBI’s “security index,” meaning that he could be arrested and detained in the event of a national security emergency. Can you explain how a highly visible communist party member, could be viewed as a mentor?
Boycott will be easy, as I haven’t watched him in years. I find him very boring.
Boycott O’Reilly? Are you crazy? This would be the first time Obama finally gets some tough questions to answer.
Not on the night that McCain accepts the nomination; this is, as Peggy Noonan would say — ultimate suck-uppery to Obama by O’Reilly.
I boycott anti-Swift Boat Vet, pro-ILLEGAL alien Bill O’Reilly every night.
I’m not shocked by BOR. He’s been in the tank for Obama from th start. Getting an interview with the MN is more important than decency, which he abandoned long ago.
Haven’t watched BOR for years, but I would think that people might watch and judge for themselves if BOR is sucking up to Obama or interviewing him in a responsible manner. Like it or not, Obama is a Democrats’ presidential nominee, and is supposed to be accorded respect in an interview. So let’s let the interview happen and see how it goes. The Libs are the ones who like censorship.
Same here. The only show I watch reliably on FNC is Brit Hume's show. The rest of the network sucks IMO.
OK, got it. We will see if BHO actually shows up.
I haven’t seen O’Reilly for four years. He could bring Obama home Thursday night, feed him to his dog and I could care less.
can’t hannity show up early and ambush obama instead
O’Reilly has been been sucking up to Gore, Kerry, Hillary and now Obama. I guess Obama is trying to steal some of McCain’s thunder by going on O’reilly this Thursday. I’ll be watching C-span instead.
No, it is this Thursday, Sept 4.
"Senator Obama, why did you allow a fake birth certificate to be posted on your website? Where is the proof that you are a natural-born U.S. citizen? What are you trying to hide?"
Is there somewhere we can post suggested questions to Mr. O?
I am seriously perturbed that O'Reilly and Fox would dare to set this up on the night that McCain is giving his acceptance speech. O'Reilly is so craven that he would accept this obvious intrusion to the RNC...
BILL WHO !!!!!
Maybe Obama will think he’s live and they will tape it for next day broadcast!
We can only hope. Bill did not say live, only that he will interview Obama (sometime) on Thursday.
I’d have to start watching him in order to boycott him. No thanks. He’s a liberal who pretends to be a conservative to stay on television. He’s just a more manipulative ‘Rat.
I second that motion. Maybe I'll just listen to his radio show 5 minutes less than I usually do until I feel like reaching through the radio and strangling him for being such a liberal puppet; taking the total listening time to 0.
People at GretaWire blog are already emailing O’Reilly to tell him how disgusted they are with him.
That’s an excellent set of questions. I hope that Senator Obama is given the opportunity to publicly answer each of them.
I have watched O’Reilly since day one (and yes he drives me crazey sometimes too). But i just sent him an email telling him that he has completely lost my respect and if he ever criticizes another news outlet again, he will be the laughing stock. The ultimate suck-uppery by O’Reilly.
To step on John McCain like this is beyond believable.
Shame on Bill O and FNC.
So this is the FNC piece of the whore deal Murdoch made with Obama.
What a low rent Obama scheme - steal the RNC thunder with the willing help of FNC.
O’Reilly never hits the big names with the toughest questions so I doubt he will get past the price of Arugala with Obama.
Barry is desperate and Bill is a fool. Barry trashes Fox News when it’s convenient; shame on Fox for hosting him. Not tuning in to The Factor for sure!
But the Red Sox are not playing that night.
political malpractice - courtesy of obama camp
