O'Reilly is doing what he does best. Calling out evil for what it is.

BTTT

Says Huffington Post has cleaned up it’s act.

But Daily Kos is still sick he says.

O’Reilly says Tony would have overlooked the insult.. but he won’t.

It’s beyond disgusting.

O’Reilly says the AP is no longer a news service.

Bill says used to they could take an AP story and go on the air with it.

He says now it’s always distorted and they can never use a story word for word.

O'Reilly should get them for this. The AP is changing to an Opinion source instead of a straight news source. They will lose what appearance of integrity they had, not that they should have a good reputation.

“did not always have command of the facts”

I didn't know Mr. Snow personally, but knowing his personality, where-ever Mr. Snow is now, he's probably chuckling at that statement.

And pitying the poor soul who uttered it.

That’s what they just said on O’Reilly. That Tony would have laughed at it all.

He probably would have. But we are not overlooking it.

With the passing of Russert so close to Tony, it just becomes so obvious the difference between the Left and the Right. While there are some nuts on this side, you would never see a credible conservative media organization allow spew about Russert being spread on their pages. Instead, we get liberal rags like the LA Times allowing a reader to wonder if Snow would be buried in his Nazi uniform. These people are the most hatefilled I’ve ever encountered.

Wow-what an awesome show. So glad they tore up the AP and LAT.

I hope and pray the days are over when we roll over and just sigh when this garbage slanders a good Conservative. I know I would fight for Tony..and his good friends are there to cover his back.

Kudos to Griff, Bill and Juan.

Rush was the first to bring this article up.

We have to stand up and fight for our side.. or we won’t have a side pretty soon.

Yep, I think so too. Griff (from what I see of him) would phoophoo that comment, but I think Tony had a very big influence on him and Griff is coming across as a very honorable and faithful friend.

Prayers continue for Griff--he is grieving and having to defend Tony's honour at the same time--even as he comforts Tony's family.

Stick your knuckles out and then go sit in the corner for an hour and eat worms.

Yep he has his moments!

I love this segment where he sends his producer to confront politicians.

They NEED to be confronted about some of the stuff they vote for.

No more freebies.

In the NYTimes article about Rush Limbaugh, he compared BOR to Ted Baxter.

I must stop reading those comments on the Times website. I am so mad I could ...well, I dunno what I could do.

It is the lowest of the low that they would leave those comments up.....about anybody. I can’t believe how hateful the left can be.

She said Tiller was a “Health Care Provider”

SICK SICK SICK!

He’s not a Health Care Provider. As O’Reilly said.. he’s running a death mill in Kansas.

I noticed that the editor of the Chicago Tribune resigned today also. No explanation-just said that the job wasn't what it had been originally.

Be nice to think that there may be some integrity left in some of these MSM people after all.

Well, that's exactly what will happen with McCain as our standard bearer. Makes me sick. Do you think there's any chance the will be a Zell Miller type speech this year at the convention? Not a chance. And without something like that, this year is lost. Kiss it goodbye.

Contrast that with the worshipful treatment given to Russert.

The mainstream news media again beats their own record for disgusting conduct. I'm not surprised.

The announcement of Hiller’s departure came the same day as the resignation of Ann Marie Lipinski, 52, as editor of the Chicago Tribune. Lipinski will be replaced by Gerould W. Kern, 58, a former associate and deputy managing editor at the newspaper who has been vice president of editorial at the company’s Tribune Publishing unit since 2003.

Gosh, this is hard to see the clips of Tony on O'Reilly right now....I feel as though he is still here. Like he isn't gone from us.

This still hurts so much.

Yep...I believe that Westboro Baptist Church is nothing but a leftist front group with one goal...giving Christianity a very bad name. I shudder to think about the judgment they will receive one day.
