Bill O'Reilly? Who's He?

Reported by Melanie - October 25, 2004 -

Dayside w/Linda Vester airs at 1:00 p.m. ET weekdays. At that time of day, Fox News typically runs advertisements promoting it's late afternoon and evening shows. The advertisements are aired as one clip consisting of a quick blurb about two or three upcoming shows, such as Big Story w/John Gibson, Hannity & Colmes, or The O'Reilly Factor. Sometimes Your World w/Neil Cavuto or On the Record w/Greta Van Sustren are part of the mix. Until Bill O'Reilly's sexual harassment problems surfaced, his show was almost always included. He, however, hasn't been added of late, and today, a promo for tomorrow morning's Fox & Friends was included.

COMMENT: Fox beats something like the Dan Rather/CBS Bush National Guard story to death. But when scandal comes to their own house they close the door and draw the blinds. And now, they're running so far away from O'Reilly that they're even dipping into the next day to find shows to promo instead of his.
