  • O’Reilly Rips ‘Pathetic Ideological Loons’ at MSNBC for Ebola ‘Racism’ Attacks

    Bill O’Reilly spent a significant part of his first segment tonight decrying the “racism” accusations being thrown by some MSNBC commentators amidst nationwide Ebola panic. O’Reilly did not directly call out MSNBC in his Talking Points Memo, but it was very clearly aimed at them, since he had teased the segment with a clip of Alex Wagner saying some Republican comments on Ebola, including calling for a travel ban is “not even thinly-veiled racism.” And that wasn’t the first time someone on MSNBC had invoked racism in talking about a travel ban; a guest on Melissa Harris-Perry‘s show did so...

    Bill O’Reilly went nuclear tonight on CDC Director Tom Frieden, calling him out for refusing to appear on his show and declaring that Frieden should resign for perpetuating a “dumb and dangerous ruse” on the likelihood that Ebola may spread in the United States. O’Reilly trashed the “total garbage” coming from Frieden, and called him a chief propagandist spreading a “dumb and dangerous ruse.” And not getting behind a travel ban while believing airport employees will be able to check for Ebola is “stupid and irresponsible and puts all Americans at risk.” And in the next two segments O’Reilly held...

    National Geographic Channel has announced the cast for Killing Jesus, its third adaptation -- after Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy -- of a bestselling historical thriller by Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard, and American actor Haaz Sleiman, who's originally from Lebanon, has snagged the title role. Born in the United Arab Emirates but raised in Lebanon, Sleiman moved to the U.S. when he was 21 and currently lives in Los Angeles. He's best known for playing a Syrian immigrant in the 2008 indie film The Visitor. He's also appeared in Showtime's Nurse Jackie (as a gay...

    Bill O’Reilly came under criticism from the Obama administration this week for stating that Jen Psaki, spokesperson for the State Department, “looks way out of her depth” and that “just the way she delivers, she doesn’t look like she has the gravitas for the job.” The criticism was delivered by Psaki’s deputy, Marie Harf, who claimed that O’Reilly’s comments are sexist because she doesn’t “actually [doesn't] think [he] would ever use [those words] about a man.” O’Reilly’s actions are “not ok,” Harf lectured. Harf, who makes Psaki look intellectually hefty, should think again. O’Reilly has used similar words to disparage...

As those funds for subsidies are taken from businesses and affluent Americans, O’Reilly said our country is now moving toward socialism and will suffer economically if the entitlement culture expands.

    Make no mistake, Fox News is still the ratings king. But the recent May numbers show that while all the cable channels had a decline in ratings (which is normal for May), Fox News was far from spared, with some of its lowest ratings in 12 years. While Fox dominates with the top 14 shows in overall viewers, the total day average for Fox News in the key advertising demographic of the 25- to 54-year-old category was 177,000 viewers, only the second time Fox has gone below a 200,000 average since 2001. Another key factor coming from May ratings is...

Five days after the attack, then-Ambassador Susan Rice told the world that the attack was not pre-planned and was a spontaneous reaction to a YouTube video. “That was not true, that was not even close to being true,” O’Reilly said. According to a White House memo obtained by Judicial Watch, Ben Rhodes sent an email to prep Rice about the attack, listing the following two goals:

That rancher Cliven Bundy broke the law for many years by not paying the fees, that the federal government owns the land and that the State of Nevada readily admits the feds have jurisdiction in the grazing controversy. Those are the facts. So, we presented them to you and then mildly criticized the feds for overreacting. You may remember, Judge Napolitano and I basically said...

Still, it’s probably fair to say that when most people think of Nevada renegade rancher Cliven Bundy, the Zuccotti Park protesters of Occupy Wall Street don’t immediately — or eventually — come to mind.

So in the course of one day, the evidence had gone from "strong" to "overwhelming." On what basis did this occur? O'Reilly doesn't say. I submit that O'Reilly is engaged in bloviating....

When reality sinks in and the injured realize how dependent they are without all of their limbs, often there are severe psychological consequences. Many of the soldiers and Marines who lost limbs were self-reliant achievers who lived life on their own terms. The...

Here’s another: Bill O’Reilly conservatives versus Rush Limbaugh conservatives. Last week, the two media titans clashed after O’Reilly accused opponents of gay marriage of lacking “compelling argument[s]” and merely “thump[ing] the Bible.” Limbaugh responded by saying that conservative Christians “were sort of marginalized” on O’Reilly’s show. On the surface, the scuffle merely reflected differing opinions about the arguments deployed last week at the Supreme Court. But in reality, it reflected a different view of conservatism itself....

    On Thursday night, conservative radio host Mark Levin attacked Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and the “has-beens” at CNN for their “hit” on Rep. Michele Bachmann after she was caught racing away from a CNN reporter confronting her over factually inaccurate claims about the president’s “lavish” White House living. On Tuesday, CNN reporter Dana Bash attempted to confront Bachmann over her claims that the president has an extraordinarily luxurious lifestyle, but was famously met with deflection and a race away from the camera. On The O’Reilly Factor last night, the eponymous Fox host criticized Bachmann for her “trivial attacks on...

    Bill O’Reilly took on the brewing war between Sarah Palin and Karl Rove after Palin called out Rove during her CPAC speech Saturday and he hit back at her on Fox News Sunday. Brit Hume joined O’Reilly to try to figure out what this latest bout of infighting means for the Republican Party. O’Reilly asked Hume, appearing from Miami, Florida in a salmon-colored sweater, if he was wearing material from Hillary Clinton‘s pantsuit before launching into the substance of the segment. Hume insisted that the skirmish between Palin and Rove has little to do with their actual political “ideas,” noting...

    Fox News host and best-selling author Bill O’Reilly on Monday disputed conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh’s contention that liberals are the dominant political ideology in the United States. “We are now in a struggle to define America,” O’Reilly said in his “Talking Points” segment of his top-rated program. “The left has powerful agents in the media and pop culture. The right is disorganized and lacks leadership.” … The key to changing this malaise in American society is, he said, “a charismatic conservative leader” who can “fight off the media jackals.” “That person can turn the country to the right,”...

    Does Fox News now have an All-Amnesty lineup? Looks like it. Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly have now fallen in line behind World Citizen Rupert Murdoch’s support of ”sweeping, generous immigration reform,” including a “path to citizenship.” Karl Rove was always on board, of course. What about Fox News’ viewers? Are they going to go along like sheep? They now have no network that represents their perspective on what seems to be a key issue for Obama’s second term. Is it time for a new Fox? (Wouldn’t it be time for a new Fox anyway? That lineup has been stale...

    Bill O’Reilly opened his show tonight asking if recent events in Libya will lose the election for President Obama. O’Reilly appeared to be losing patience with how Obama keeps dodging questions about what happened in Libya and who told which administration officials what to say. O’Reilly also blamed the media, and Brian Williams in particular, for not actually bringing these issues up in interviews with the president. O’Reilly brought up a report that said urgent requests for backup in the Benghazi consulate were not followed up on by the CIA. During a radio interview, Obama claimed that he was not...

    OK, Bill's points tonite are: Mitt payed it to close to the vest and didn't attack Obama in debate 3 Mitt is trying to appeal to women and soft peddling himself. As a result most Americans think Obama won debate 3 as a result.
