The Fox News Channel's number one star, Bill O'Reilly, host of The O'Reilly Factor, was photographed palling around with terrorist supporter Medea Benjamin at Wednesday night's Radio and TV Correspondents Dinner in Washington.
Benjamin is a co-founder, along with Barack Obama funder Jodie Evans, of the terrorist support group Code Pink.
O'Reilly has made Benjamin a frequent guest on The Factor without ever challenging her on her support for Hamas, al Qaeda, the Taliban and Hezbollah, nor her work with state sponsors of terrorism including Iran, Syria, Cuba and the government of the late dictator Saddam Hussein.
Benjamin has waged psychological warfare against American troops and their children on the homefront while aiding those trying to kill them overseas. Code Pink has repeatedly called our troops baby killers, the terrorists, murderers, assassins and more, yet O'Reilly treats Benjamin as a friend.
Up until 2005, Code Pink used to protest Fox News, now they pal around with Fox's number one star.
BOR has been coerced by the limelight. He is, IMO, no longer a journalist but rather a clone of Whorealdo.
“Palling” around? Freudian slip?
Pinhead - not a Patriot.
I am not a big BOR fan, but let’s be honest here. He excoriates that group and her on a regular basis. He was most likely simply playing nice because cameras were around.
Palling around? Looks like he just got his photograph taken with them.
Agreed. Its not productive to be combative all the time.
I agree. Too many around here jump too fast to denigrate someone over the most minor event or statement.
FR should be a place of "think first" before you post....that would set us apart from everyone else on the web.
bill IS and has ALWAYS BEEN a flaming leftist... playing a quasi Conservative populist... he is also a sexual deviate, a liar and racist bigot... other than that...
I’d get my picture taken with Michael Moore. If I survived I’d be sure to post it here ASAP. LOL
Funny how this and the Hannity story come out together just when the dims need some traction.
Show me where he has challenged Code Pink for sending cash and humanitarian aid to the terrorists in Fallujah and Gaza.
You can't because he and Fox News have never done so.
Well you made it sound like he was hanging around with Al Qaeda.
Just for the record, O’Reilly always has been a strong and outspoken critic of Code Pink (who aren’t terrorist support groups, just blame America first nutjobs). I really don’t see what the problem is here.
Click here for several articles published by Big Government detailing Code Pink's work with terrorists and state sponsors of terrorism.
I really dont see what the problem is here.
No you don’t. Since your sign up date is within the past week, you can be excused for not understanding the evil nature of Medea Benjamin.
She and her bff Jodie Evans DO support America’s enemies. Recently they were in Egypt protesting the closing of “smugglers’ tunnels” into Gaza. They started protests outside Walter Reed Medical Center calling our wounded soldiers horrible names.
They are propagandists of the highest order, addicted to the Color Pink and TV cameras, and should not be given air time on FOX.
Exactly. How quickly we forget their strategy of creating doubt so that we devour our own.
The problem is you, noob. You have been here less than a week and you are trying to school someone who knows FAR MORE than you about O'Rielly, Code Pink, and Medea Benjamin--first hand.
And yes, the evidence is overwhelming that Code Pink is a terrorist support group.
So tell us, who do you really work for?
Excuse me? Who the hell do you think you are insulting me like that? If you can’t handle differences in opinion, then get of this site you jerk.
And I wasn’t trying to “school you”. People like you need to stop jumping to wild conclusions and insulting others. Especially over such petty things like this post.
No, you are not excused. In any way shape or form. I have been here over 11 years. You haven’t been here 6 days!
You are factually incorrect and I called you on it. If you are any kind of Soldier, you would be able to handle a mere difference of opinion.
But to ignore the facts about Code Pink and Medea Benjamin, which are not disputable, and to try to school kristinn on the subject when he has had years of dealing with them and with being a guest on O’Rielly numerous times, YOU are the one who can take a hike,pal!
Been on FR less than a week and already policeing us?
Ditto, he has those clowns on, with rope, for their regular "hang yourself" session on TV.
O’Reilly is the uber ratings ho so of course he’ll act nice with Medea Benjamin because she’s on his show fr time to time. One big happy TV family
They work for o’bloviator... they are biased, uninformed and ignorant... just like bill and his research staff.
He’s a douche! Forget him!
“No, you are not excused. In any way shape or form. I have been here over 11 years. You havent been here 6 days!”
Wow. congratulations. You must feel real special. I guess that makes your opinions so much more valuable than mine.
“You are factually incorrect and I called you on it. If you are any kind of Soldier, you would be able to handle a mere difference of opinion.”
You are the one who insulted me in the first place. All I said is that Bill has repeatedly chastised the Code Pink group. I don’t know about any Code Pink connection to terrorist groups. If there is, then that still has no relevance to Bill O’Reilly.
“But to ignore the facts about Code Pink and Medea Benjamin, which are not disputable, and to try to school kristinn on the subject when he has had years of dealing with them and with being a guest on OReilly numerous times, YOU are the one who can take a hike,pal!”
Again, I didn’t school anyone. You need to read my post again. Perhaps take a chill pill. You’re acting like a grade A a$$whole. I registered so I could discuss politics. Not be insulted by the likes of you. Please, don’t bother replying to me again if you are going to keep acting like this.
Yes, like the hit job they did on FR in 2007.
O'Boob should know better than to have a picture taken with Medea holding a banner. What a tool.
Well I would like to think this isn’t a place where people attack the new guy. What’s with all the hatred. All I said was “I don’t see what the problem is”. And I don’t.
Well, just who is worthy anyway? Can anyone be found?
Now you are mocking a typo? And suddenly I’m not “real” because I don’t see what the problem is with this is? I may be new to this site, but at least I know the rules. NO PERSONNEL ATTACKS.
Your words, not mine.
Addressed to kristinn, as if he didn't know what the record is. "Just Blame America first nutjobs"? What, like you know or something? You have already admitted you don't know their history. They are a terrorist support group.
So, yeah,I call that schooling.
As for the rest of your asinine post to me, nice projection.
One other thing--if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen, because I'm not going anywhere.
Let’s be fair. He was almost certainly ambushed in a public area with cameras all around.
Oh, let ‘em blow. If longevity equals wisdom, Strom Thurmond would have been king of the world. Or at least the senate.
And I agreed with you that you don’t see what the problem is.
That is why you are being asked by me and others to do a little research on Medea Benjamin, and not base your opinion of her on what you have seen of her interactions with Bill O’Reilly on his show, where he tries to be “neutral” - and in so doing, does not bring forth her true nature and agenda.
One of the major values of Free Republic is education on issues because so many posters have truly important information to share on specific topics.
When a seasoned member of FR asks a new member to get a bit more informed, it is not “hatred.” It is a courtesy to a newbie - or a pushback to a disruptor.
New members are welcome, unless they come with a big chip on their shoulder.
If you cant handle differences in opinion, then get of this site you jerk.your post 22
Yeah, you know the rules, alright.
And it's "personal", not "personnel".
If David Duke went up to O'Reilly with a KKK banner do you think O'Reilly would stop and pose with him?
“When a seasoned member of FR asks a new member to get a bit more informed, it is not hatred. It is a courtesy to a newbie - or a pushback to a disruptor.”
I was called a noob, douchebag, mocked over a typo, mocked for not being on FR for long, accused of not knowing history (like they know me), and accused of being a troll. Why? Because I don’t see what the deal is about O’Reilly taking this picture. I never heard of any terrorist connection. From the post, it seemed as if the poster was calling Code Pink a terrorist group just because they were anti-war. Someone could have just gave me a link about the connections. They didn’t have to verbally assault me like that.
What a popinjay.
Bill O’Reily serves a purpose.
Is he a conservative??? No.
Do we all agree with him on his political views?? No
However, he does an excellent job of exposing BOTH the Code Pink nut jobs and more importantly, the pedophiles,especially NAMBLA, during his broadcasts.
He should be commended for this.
Yes, I got the link. And thank you for that. My frustration was not directed at you. Just those who felt the need to chastise me like they did.
And, for the record I agree with both you and EternalSoldier....I think that BOR has not excoriated Code Pink anywhere near as much as he should have and I also think that this picture looks like he was "ambushed" as he was going into an event. I do not believe the picture shows him "palling around" with the Pinkos.
What Hannity story? I missed that one.
Even paranoids have enemies. We are so frequently inundated with lying leftist seminar posters that we tend to harbor suspicion of newcomers. If you are one of them, go away. If you are one of us, just a bit newer, try to clear up the misunderstanding and realize that we don't all agree on everything.
