O'Reilly Calls News Hounds & Others "Bottom of the Barrel"

Reported by Marie Therese - September 9, 2005

On September 6th, I posted an report entitled "Desperate to Take the Heat Off Bush, O'Reilly Lies and Blames the Poor". Last night [9-8-05] Bill O'Reilly said this in his Talking Points Memo: "Feeling sorry for O'Reilly. That is the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo."

He continued: "So I'm makin' a sympathy play here. Are you ready? Over the past ten days I've gotten an amazing amount of criticism from both the left and the right. The Kool-Aid people are goin' nuts. Feel bad for me, yet? I didn't think so!

"But it's interesting to demonstrate what a certain segment of America is like. The absolute bottom of the barrel are the crazy websites. One far-left blog says quote "Desperate to take the heat off Bush, O'Reilly blames the poor in Hurricane Katrina." This after my Talking Points saying the government can't protect you and you better have enough assets to protect yourself. If you'd like to read my entire position on the matter, my new column, just posted on BillOReilly.com deals with it."

Later after slapping the wrist of an unidentified conservative blog for calling him an "economic fool" because he wants to curb the oil companies and then tearing into a liberal writer from the LA Weekly, he said:

"This kind of nonsense is ideologically driven and appears all day, every day in this country. There are no standards anymore in the media. But the good news is,that folks are seeing through the propaganda and coming into venues the truth and deliver opinion backed up by fact. Once again The Factor and FOX News have dominated the hurricane coverage on cable and we appreciate you're making that happen. Of course, the Kool-Aid people are just beside themselves, but we continue to roll along. So, really, there isn't any sympathy needed."


Bill, you couldn't even get the title of my post correct.

Tsk, tsk.

I keep saying that research staff of yours ought to be fired for incompetence.
