O'Reilly is a joke

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MsuooIpnArQ

watch him twist words to fit his own agenda, just plain pathetic how he then cuts her off when she tries to clear up the "misunderstanding". i put misunderstanding in quotes because it wasn't, it was spin doctoring. Does he ever give anyone a fair shake? i remember way back when he did the interview with Rich Franklin and Dana White on MMA, as i remember it that included even more spin by O'Reilly.

I would say this is a problem. how can your left wing and right wing supporters coexist when the media for the sides act like children? is there such thing as a unbiased news source in America anymore?

no, there isn't. all news media is owned by corporations; hense, in bed with politicians. all news media is biased, there's no way around it. and o'riely is a prime example of one of those political figures who says nothing but what his party wants him to say. he might believe it all, and probably does, but he just will never consider anything other than the standard positions of his peers!

i've been doing some writing about how partisian politics is the root cause of all of America's ills. eventually, when it's done, i'll post it. But essentially, partisian politics will always lead to infighting, bickering and the erosion of issues. it all comes down to, "they did it, look what we did, they'll do that look what we'll do, blah blah blah, nanny nanny poo poo!"

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

I remember seeing a video (I am almost positive it was on here) with some pro wrestler talking to a reporter, and then slapping the reporter when he said pro wrestling was fake; I want O'Reilly to interview that guy.

I saw that too, but I can't remember who it was. Anyone who remembers please post his name otherwise this will bother me for a long time.

People like Bill O'Reilly, Michael Savage (He had a show on MSNBC called the Savage Nation. This guy is a real asshole), Joe Scarborough are the reasons why I don't watch the news anymore. These New channels are suppose to report unbiased news. Just the fact that Bill O'Reilly, Joe Scarborough, Mike Savage have or had (refering to Savage)shows that these news networks are very biased. They support only the GOP and no one else. Hell, I think the last guy who had a show on MSNBC that actually wasn't biased was Donahue. I think he was fired for questioning the invasion of Iraq or something (I forget the exact detail).

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Savage just tells it like it is. He isn't too biased. A little, but not bad enough to complain about. He used to be worse back in the 90s but he was younger then. He is now the #1 radio show in the country. 8 million listeners a week. He just reports the news and *****es about it. Not much bias going on past a normal opinion.
