Bill O'Reilly: "FreeRepublic Needs A Full Time Monitor. It Has None."
Fox News/Bill O'Reilly Show

Posted on 08/03/2007 4:04:35 AM PDT by lowbridge

Edited on 08/03/2007 4:16:59 PM PDT by Admin Moderator. [history]

This morning only a couple of minutes before 5am, I was surfing around when I came upon Fox News. Bill O'Reilly was closing out his show with him reading off a few viewers emails and him giving a small response to each one. One of them defended FreeRepublic, saying that doing a search, Daily Kos had thousands of certain cuss words, and FR had none. O'Reilly's response to that was: "FreeRepublic Needs A Monitor. It Has None." (And then he moved on to another email)

"..Alan Novak, Wichita, KS: "Comparing the Free Republic to the Daily Kos, I searched the F-word. Daily Kos, almost seven thousand mentions. Free Republic, none.""

Whether BOR’s slander calling FR a “hate site” makes it official or not, it probably does. I would say that whomever classifies such things will take the word of a single squawker (footnotes usually cite one single source). And you can bet that when Lanny Davis is confronted with a quote from FR he’ll dismiss it as just a hate site, and even BOR agrees, and he is a Conservative, so he must know, blah blah. One squawker. That is all it takes.

I was wondering when someone was going to mention the dreaded ZOT! Those threads are always a good way to check the pulse of Free Republic.

If you want to understand Bill O'Reilly, try to find a copy of A Face in the Crowd starring Andy Griffith and directed by Elia Kazan.

"It is so refreshing to hear people speak the truth without backing down."

IMHO BOR is a populace a**. I am waiting for his show about the evils of forced phone sex, bet he won't do that one. I am guessing we won't see a show about sexual harassment either.

He is anti-death penalty, mushy on Gays, scary on personal liberty, and smarmy when a good looking woman is his guest.

Oh and He slandered the swift boaters. Don't like him. He is a hypocrite of the worst kind.

Bill O Reilly gets deservedly banged around is known to carry a grudge for those who are perceived to ‘slight ‘him.
The man has an ego, way too large for one head.
I’ve little time for his arrogant pompous ‘bloviating’,
have not seen for quite some time, nor do I intend watching his ‘nightly show’.
O’Reilly is our version of Bryant Gumbal.

BOR is on a censorship bandwagon. There can be nothing on a site that he personally disagrees with, if he does, it’s hate speech.

When you think about it, the picture of Joe Leiberman and Bush that was on the KOS, would not have been seen by many if it weren’t for BOR. HE is the one that made it an issue.

Not a nice pic, but then if it gets no attention, it goes away.

Tell me, who is at fault? I think Joe knows politics, and is quite capable and bold enough, to defend himself.

Who needs a monitor?

"There is no other cure than to kill Matt Drudge," O'Reilly charged on the IMUS in the MORNING radio show.

"I just want to tell everybody that Matt Drudge is smoking crack - right now, in South Miami Beach on Washington Avenue... And the authorities should know it." from Drudge Report Archives.

What say you O'Blowhard?

Once you;ve seen THIS horse’s @$$, you’ve seen them ALL!
More prozac won’t do it—this boy needs to be taught a free speech lesson—he is in a hate speech mode w/anyone/anything that doesn’t please him being the enemy.

It’s contagious—lately I’ve noticed talking heads referring to people in the news as..., e.g., scumbags, etc. This on even local TV news shows—what gives these people the right, these talking heads, to publicly degrade people accused of crimes (innocent until proven...). Judges sometimes do the same thing when sentencing people, found guilty of crimes, in this case, publicly standing the citizen before them and reading him/her out, telling what he/she personally thinks of the individual, Is that within the rights of a judge, even?

So where is all this coming from, are TV people taking their cues from our judges, so-called; or from the king of the TV bigmouths himself?
Just my personal opinion, folks.

BOR should read the message boards at his hometown paper:

I highly doubt they have any monitor as many posts are simply downright offensive if not hate speech.

As opposed to Chris Matthews, I’ll take O’Reilly. At least he is not a leftist. He spews, I know, but in spite of his ego I think he is a decent guy with basically good values.

Yeah, he just threw a bunch of grenades based on false information, misinformed a lot of people and then ran away.

I still haven't seen an apology for the 'blacks' comment.

That's the thing about BOR, several times he has attempted so hard to give himself a "fair and balanced" moniker, that he doesn't seem to care if he gets it right or not.

BOR needs to put in just one quick call to Tony Snow and the President's own Press Secretary should confirm that FR does indeed have monitors.

MEMO

To: Mr. O’Reilly, Staff, Handlers, Sympathetic Observers
From: The Conservative Base
Subject: Alienation


Whenever one finds oneself in a hole, there is a temptation to continue digging.

I suggest you stop.

Alienation of base support, whether it be of a political or media figure, is patently unwise.

I offer a recent example.

President Bush and the GOP in 2006 were determined to ignore the concerns of their base constituency, resulting in an electoral disaster. That this betrayal from so-called conservative politicians was the reward for countless and tireless efforts of their volunteer supporters was despicable.

More curiously though, with whom was President Bush et. al. attempting to curry favor?

The Liberal Left despise and demonize Bush, irrespective of his policies. His attempted outreach is just seen as weakness. Compromises, via ill-advised domestic programs, earn him even more derision from his sworn Socialist enemy.

Mr. O’Reilly, whatever base or core audience you have is not, and will never be, on the Left side of the political spectrum. They mock you with the same anger and fervor that they reserve for Bush. Your name is spoken on news and talk shows as a synonym for ‘idiot’. Hollywood and the media are not your friends.

When you alienate the intelligent and patriotic Conservative Right with reckless and foolhardy comparisons of Daily Kos to Free Republic, you follow Bush’s failed experiment.

Stop digging, Mr. O’Reilly.

Put aside your grandiosity and inflated ego for this critical time in your life, and instead, think.

You would be wise to apologize to Free Republic, and vow instead to harness the unsurpassed talent, wit, intelligence, research and power of the largest collection of freedom fighters the world has ever known.

Your very future depends on it.

That was the straw that broke the camel’s back for me with BOR. I think he equated the SBVT with the likes of moveon.org and called them “swiftboat people” instead of “Veterans”. IMHO, BOR has earned any and all the disrespect being heaped upon him.

Here are my thoughts on the subject.

If the Democrats regain the White House and keep control of both houses of Congress BOR will get his wish and I don't think we're going to be liking the results.

The Democrats have clearly show themselves to be very poos sports when it comes to people questioning their actions. They consider any all vocal and oral criticisms of them, their party and their actions to be hate speech.

They would pretty much like to see all 80,000 or so of us freepers in either a jail cell or mental institution.

The Democrats and RINO's do not have our nation's best interests in their hearts. Their interest in regaining power and misusing and abusing it to suit their own desires for sex, money and power.

The Democrat party and the RINO's are both criminal enterprises that need to be put out of business. it's as simple as that.

Regards...........
