He called Neal Boortz a "vicious son of a bitch."

I think Bill has blown this prom thing way out of proportion. And his "demands" on Gov. Purdue are way out of line.

Boortz said as much on his page - I've given up on O'Reilly. He's a moron.

LOL, Yes he did. Neil Boortz said all O'Reilly was doing was running cover for his HubCap remarks and Bill called him a "Viscous Son-of-a-Bitch"

I thought it was funny, O'Reilly was caught off guard with that one :-)

That is a lot different than calling a man a SOB and especially one in charge of a show and the other being a guest. O'Reilly must be losing it!

I think Boortz is the best talk radio host there is. It is too bad that my local station carries his show from 8-10 PM when I am engaged in other activities and unable to listen to talk radio most of the time. And my computer at work doesnt have speakers to listen live from his web site.

I thought last night was bad and then turned to O'Reilly and noticed his talking points was about the damn prom again. Who the h*ll cares Bill? I quickly turned the channel. Why he is so enamored of this deal is beyond me; perhaps Boortz is right in that he's trying to cover for his ill chosen words.

I sent him an email stating this very thing. I also told him that he was out of line with Boortz.

Here is a cut and paste job off another thread.

Here is the O'Reilly story: Bill O’Reilly was emceeing an event on April 12th sponsored by the Best Friends Foundation, a non-profit that provides a curriculum and resources for children from 5th to 12th grade to make the proper decisions outside of school. During the festivities, a capella group of 6th to 8th grade boys called the Best Men was late making it back onto the stage to perform. Trying to fill the time, O’Reilly quipped, “Does anyone know where the Best Men are? I hope they’re not in the parking lot stealing our hubcaps.” Now, 6th to 8th graders are usually not associated with the theft that O’Reilly is describing. Most adolescents who engage in criminal activity do so later in adolescence. More importantly, the boys that were the target of O’Reilly’s cheap joke were in a singing group. Anyone with a cursory understanding of the “gangsta” culture that embodies most teenage delinquency today (regardless of race) would agree that 12 year olds in doo-wop bands are not trying to make their mark through criminal activity. So why did O’Reilly make this off-the-cuff remark? No kidding…the kids in the Best Men are black. O’Reilly stereotyped young black men with criminal activity, even though the majority of black boys under the age of 18 do not engage in criminal activity. Many members of the crowd, according to Lloyd Grove of the Washington Post, did not hear the remark. However, Bo Derek was in attendance and acknowledged hearing the remark, although provided no additional comment. Washington news anchor Andrea Roane, after hearing the remark, was purported to have muttered, “Unbelievable.” An anonymous source added, “The well-known Republican politicians and their spouses seated at or near my table were appalled.”

Spinning O'Reilly

I don't know how true the story is but who does.

If O'Reilly said that he was out of line.

Regardless, Bill usually gets himself in the most trouble when he tries to appease everybody. Those on the right, and the left. When he does this, he digs himself a real big hole.

That's being charitable...Boortz kicked O'reillys arse from Atlanta to Amsterdam, and rightfully so. The "My Spin Zone" got busted bigtime tonight........and Bill knew it. He'll do his spin tomorrow, but he knows....oh, he knows.

He got his clock cleaned and his tail kicked in one little segment. He was outclassed.

We learned one thing tonight: Bill O'Reilly does NOT like being laughed at.

I think he's imploding. Even if you LIKE various talk show hosts keep this in mind:
Many (but not all) radio and tv. talk show hosts reach a point in their career where they're getting good ratings or attention...and they CHANGE. This is natural, but the change is often where they lose respect for their listeners or their guests. It's sort of like Citizen Kane, where the idealistic newspaper owner "sells out" the older he gets and says "Rosebud" in the end.
I think O'Reilly has gone WAY down hill. I mean WAY downhill the past few months.
Frankly, I'm becoming a huge fan of the Goldsboro show on MSNBC. That guy seems to love what he does, almost gleefully enter into debate, and is 100 percent blunt. O'Reilly uses the word "success" referring to him and his show and "power" referring to him and his show" an awful lot now.
If he does not halt his slide in this direction he'll likely find he's losing ratings, find it harder to get guests, etc.
Almost all top radio talk show hosts are quite different once they hit the top, from when they were coming up. (An unsung talent is San Diego's Roger Hedgecock)

I have news for Mr. O'Reilly. Every year at the high school I graduated from, there is a formal event called the 'Black Ball'. It is a school sponsored event and is for only black students. This is in addition to all other formals that EVERYONE is invited to. Now, isn't that also segregationist? Well surprise, Bill. This isn't happening in Georgia. It's happening in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

No kidding. Did you see him last night? He was absolutely, inappropriately VICIOUS to the young female aide of Purdue's who came on to represent him. He was psycho!!!!

If your cut and paste job is accurate, then it is not O'Reilly that is spinning this out of control. How thin is the skin these days, anyway?

Let's see ... an event sponsored by a group with the aim to provide a curriculum for children to make the right decisions outside of school ... a group of boys late for the stage ... O'Reilly quips off the cuff that he hopes they aren't out stealing hubcaps, the very type of activity the curriculum purports to prevent. Do I have that right so far? Sounds pretty benign to me. Doesn't anyone have a sense of humor any more? In context, uncolored [!] by any racial prejudice, it was a pretty witty remark.

Instead, the PC crowd jumps to all sorts of conclusions, deciding that the remarks are racist since the singing group late for the stage is black / African-American / whatever [see yesterday's baseball thread, I can't keep this straight anymore]. I think we need a hyper-sensitivity alert on this one. Who is the real racist here?

Besides, Boortz and O'Reilly both rate pretty high up on my blowhard meter. I'm surprised both egos could fit in the same room. That said, BO is not guilty on the hubcap thing. The SOB remark is something else, though.

I was just wondering if you agreed with the phrase as applied to Boorze. I thought O'Rielly argued on some pretty solid ground, in that the party was planned on school time, in the school, which would make it against the law. The SOB part was beeped out and was a retort to Boorze for a cheap shot he took at O'Reilly.

Agreed...

O'Reilly is no where near the thinker or "mover/shaker" he believes himself to be..

He goes after some High School kids, having a PRIVATE segregated dance --- and tries to impose his "moral" judgement.. It's not justified...

If O'Reilly really wanted to do something useful and needed - there are far more attractive and necessary targets he COULD go after...

But, No -- O'Reilly goes after the "low hanging fruit"...kids in High School..

He has become VERY VERY tiresome.... F'em..
