O'Reilly Just Stepped in It
Fox News, The O'Reilly Factor | 9/28/2010 | Bill O'Reilly

Posted on 09/28/2010 5:51:36 PM PDT by Tribemike1

HILARIOUS....On O'Reilly tonight, John Stossel was on making a point that many young people are too ignorant to vote...

Of course many of them couldn't identify Biden Boehner, Pelosi...but knew the latest Reality Show star

Back in studio...Stossel holds up pics of the political personalities he showed....first Biden...then he flipped to a Ruth Bader Ginsbert mugshot and O'Reilly blurts out AAAARRGGHHH! like LOUD....then catches himself, whoops, just kidding..."


TOPICS: News/Current Events; Political Humor/Cartoons
KEYWORDS:
Great ..it was that mugshot of her that is her Helen Thomas pose...ugly as sin...it is refreshing when the truth comes out and that was a truthful moment from O'Reilly....Ruth Bader Ginsbergs face scared the cr*p out of him.

Young people? My wife was behind an older couple in line to vote last month when one asked the other who they would vote for. One said, “I see xxxxxxx’s name on a lot of signs. I think I’ll vote for him.”

Perfectly understandable. I doubt many FReepers are going to disagree with his reaction.

Stossel is right about many young people being so ignorant about politics that they shouldn’t vote. I’m in my late 20s and many people in my age group who are otherwise bright, successful, and productive members of society know absolutely nothing about politics.

I have not watched him in 4 years, mostly because he is a pompus bully and constantly softballs lefties (Obama, Rosie).

I have no interest in ever hearing from him again.

Same here...there should be a constitutional amendment that sets a maximum size for some photos...that one was huge.

Well, let's look at some ignorance here.

Of course many of them couldn't identify Biden Boehner

Who is Biden Boehner?

but knew the latest Reality Show star

How about punctuation? Like a period at the end of a sentence?
Do people still do that? Sure they do.

then he flipped to a Ruth Bader Ginsbert

Ginsbert? And YOU want to talk about ignorance?

The young are ignorant!

They were a rather large contributing factor for electing the current "Jackass in the White House"!

“I’m in my late 20s and many people in my age group who are otherwise bright, successful, and productive members of society know absolutely nothing about politics.”

I have a couple young relatives and they shun politics because it is contentious and they have been taught to avoid disputes ... of any kind.

They have no “good times” off which they can compare what we have now to what things used to be. Lord knows schools do not teach any history at least history favorable to the US. They prefer to aggrandize powers which sought to control the world by liberal domination.

Did your parents dip you in lemon juice twice a day or something?

I bet you make $48K/year.

Grammar, punctuation, spelling...I get it but cannot guarantee perfection of those in a forum...just in a hurry, again lighten up and when dangling, watch your participles...

His point is that you made more faux pas in your Vanity post than O’Reilly did.

As has been used so many times lately, your post was like the pot calling the kettle black.

When you put your words into ‘print’, as is done when posting, your ‘credibility’ is often measured by the ONLY THING at hand, and that is your written word.

You can write and spell any way you want to, but you do have to deal with what ends up on your post.

Given this is a vanity, your ‘professionalism’ as a ‘journalist’ is not an issue. I do think you should be aware that whatever the reason you ‘shorted’ on the grammar, it can hamper communication.

I think that is what humblegunner was trying to get across.

As sad as it is, a LOT of people vote for a name they recognize without knowing a single thing about that person.

I saw that, too. But I think it was a poor juxtaposition of words and pictures. Stossel said that ‘people don’t recognize Joe Biden [shows picture] or even Sarah Palin [shows Ginsburg’s picture], or a supreme court justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.’

O’Reilly was reacting to the mention of Sarah Palin followed by the picture of Ginsburg. Made me gag, too. I thought Stossel was making a joke. But Stossel was not watching what he was doing as he was speaking.

I’m not sticking up for O’Reilly. He is often too even-handed in his criticism, as in the ‘all politicians are corrupt’ refrain. That and similar swipes are condescending to conservative congressmen who work hard.

I don’t trust him on anything. I watch him for the guest segments.

I thought it was because BOR is a pompous, self promoting blowhard with little discernable talent. I watch when he has interesting guests, but I feel creeped out by the guy's personality. Some sort of aversion to narcissists, I imagine.

Y’all never seen a Naughty Librarian? What’s Ruth Bader Ginsburg if not a vixen at night? Off with the eyeglasses. Pull off the barrette and let those indigo tresses cascade over her shoulders and back. Those ruby lips. Under that formless robe, are those pert tear-drop breasts so firm and high, buttocks that cupped over oh-so cute, and legs that on forever, like Jennifer Biel. Thighs that lock sensuously behind yours. A mouth that could devour a beefstake tomato and a sexual repertoire that could made a Manila Navy Yard hooker blush.
