I like it... but I hope he doesn't mean O'Reilly.

O'Reilly's show is not news... (Below threshold)

O'Reilly's show is not news and is not presented as such. It's opinion, and clearly stated that it is. It's a talk show and while I realize that some people aren't capable of making the distinction after years of liberal opinion shows with catchy names like CBS NEWS, ABC NEWS, and NBC NEWS masquerading as legitimate news the thing that should tip everyone off to O'Reilly's show is the name of it, The O'Reilly FACTOR. We had the Rather Factor calling it's self news, the Jennings FACTOR calling itself news, and the Brokaw Factor calling itself news all those years so I can kinda understand your confusion. Try to remember that, life will be easier for you and you'll look quite a bit smarter too, you know, like you recognize the difference between a talk show and a news report.

B.O. stinks.

Bill O'Reilly is a media Demi-God/ratings-whore.

Correct, his show is not news. When he talks about "the folks" he is not talking about anyone that uses any media outlet the He doesn't approve of (i.e. this one!).

His show is a scam. B.O. is the newscaster equivilant of Sen. John McCain.

Again, B.O. stinks.

Rupert who?... (Below threshold)

Rupert who?
