Since Bill "I've never met a nappy-headed, corn-rowed, ice-tea drinking black person I didn't like" O'Reilly and his hip-hop hypocrisy is so much in the news these days, this item from Salon's Tim Grieve really hits a high-note on the BillO-Bluster scale...
Bill O'Reilly's Double Standard
Bill O'Reilly had White House press secretary Dana Perino on his show Wednesday night, and he told her that she shouldn't waste her time talking to some mainstream -- read: non-Fox -- reporters who will "never give you a fair shake" and always "stab you in the back."
When Perino said that it's her job to make the effort anyway, O'Reilly responded: "All right. So you will go into the enemy camp to try to convince? You know, I have to say, with all due respect, you're wasting your time on some of these people ... They hate you. They're always going to hate you. No matter what you do, they'll destroy it."
And yes, that would be the same Bill O'Reilly who once said that John Edwards should be "ashamed" of himself for refusing to participate in a Democratic candidates' debate on Fox.
Actually O'Reilly called Edwards "stupid", and it was White House aide Larry Davis that said Edwards "should be ashamed..."
Here's a link to both Davis waving his tsk tsk finger at Edwards, and our buddy BIllO in all of his BillO-Bluster glory:
O'Reilly Compares Nevada Debate Opponents To Nazis
Tonight, Bill O'Reilly attacked the "radical movement" that opposed the Nevada Democratic Party's debate with Fox News. O'Reilly said that MoveOn, "the Daily Kos or whatever that stupid thing is," and others "use propaganda techniques perfected by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of information. They lie, distort, defame, all the time." Progressive activists attack Fox News because "we report on them accurately," O'Reilly said.
Former White House aide Lanny Davis, a close ally of Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), joined in the fray. "I'm inclined to give everybody the benefit of the doubt here except the people that are calling for cancellation of the debate because they don't like Fox," Davis said. "I disagree with this pressure from Daily Kos and MoveOn.org to cancel the debate, and I think anybody that took that pressure, including John Edwards ought to be ashamed of themselves."
BillO explains in the interview cited, which is documented at the link with a transcript and video clip, "These people use techniques perfected by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of information. They lie, distort, defame, all the time."
I'm glad O'Reilly, the supreme Fox News Hypo-cretin, is above all of that lying, distorting and defaming...
The right wing media kingpins like O'Reilly and his Phony Fox News compadres are a big part of what is wrong with the United States today. They lie, distort and defame for political gain, all the while lying about the mainstream media in their blatant attempts to convince Americans that the Fox Way is The Way to Truth and Enlightenment.
Nothing is further from the truth than Bill O'Reilly's blustering.
