Bill O'Reilly Passed On The Chance To Be The Marlboro Man In The 70s
Talking Points Memo ^ | 04-17-2014 | Caitlin Macneal

Fox Host Bill O'Reilly on Wednesday claimed that he could have been the Marlboro Man.

"While I was covering the News in Denver, I was approached by a modeling agency to be the Marlboro guy dressed as a cowboy," he said on the "O'Reilly Factor" while lamenting the lack of a public health campaign warning about the dangers of weed.

He lauded the U.S. government's campaign against smoking tobacco, but said that the U.S. has taken the opposite approach to pot.

"Smoking marijuana is quite the opposite. That’s on the rise, as pot use is considered cool in many circles, and above all it is political correct," he said.

RE :”Yeah. I stumbled across him last night while he was pimping a national ID.”

That reminds me, I got fed up with him in ~ 2006 when he was ranting and preaching on his show how the Fed government mandating corn ethanol in gas would make the US oil independent.

Stop watching him soon after.

I am amazed that so many others still watch him and havent caught on to how FofS he is.

It was probably the pendulous wattle hanging from his jaw that attracted the modeling agency.

I was listening to that Jackass one day on the radio when he suggested that banning all ammo would be the perfect solution to gun control.

His purpose is to make “moderates” think they’re being reasonable.

I cant stand his (BORs) voice.

When I want to listen to progressives to find up what they are up to I watch MSNBC, not BOR on FNC. He is a termite

He is one of those people who just rub me the wrong way, even when he says something I agree with.

Bill O Reily is more the Benson and Hedges type, stopping just short of offering someone his Grey Poupon.

He’s a big supporter of our wounded warriors, he goes after those who harm children & he loves our country. For that I applaud him.
