Bill O'Reilly and Michelle Malkin Want To Destroy Rosie O'Donnell
Reported by Deborah - April 2, 2007 -
Bill O'Reilly clearly made a decision to do whatever it takes to try to destroy Rosie O'Donnell's reputation and career. He and Michelle Malkin ganged up for a hateful attack on O'Donnell adding threats for ABC and insults to Barbara Walters. Yet after his ruthless hatefest, O'Reilly said that O'Donnell had " crossed the line into hate" predicting she would never recover.
Malkin's face was twisted in rage as she spoke of O'Donnell claiming ABC had " dug itself a deep deep hole". She and O'Reilly made sure to say ABC/Disney throughout the segment so viewers would know who to blame and perhaps boycott. Malkin even mentioned Excedrin as one of the sponsors of The View. quipping that " Everytime Rosie opens her mouth" she needs to take one.
O'Reilly kept predicting O'Donnells ruin claiming "the folks" won't take it and she had crossed the line proclaiming " Not coming back." When he mentioned that O'Donnell was on Easter break, he chuckled nastily adding " Easter break or whatever break she's on".
Malkin was in a frenzy about O'Donnell's 9/11 comment daring Rosie and Barbara Walters to have the editors of Popular Mechanics on The View the theories about the WTC collapse. BOR claimed Malkin was giving O'Donnell too much credit.
"It's like discussing dining with Jeffrey Dahmer and " I don't think Barbara Walters has any control!"
Kirsten Powers was on hand but she essentially agreed with everything they said about O'Donnell. When O'Reilly gave her the last word, Powers said" I don't know what to say."
Rosie O'Donnell had her own response to O'Reilly which she posted on her website yesterday.
Her poem offers an additional reason for O'Reilly's fury.

comment: Bill O'Reilly has made hating his life's work. Every show is a lesson in hate, intolerance and anger. Tonight he spewed hate during his talking points at Sunsara Taylor and Mayor Anderson. After the Rosie segment, he went after a Vermont Judge saying, " I told you he was a bad man." Then he called for more brutality in Iraq and blamed the press for influencing the military rules of engagement. During his interview with Senator and Mrs. Kerry, he was cordial but zinged them quite harshly. O'Reilly has crossed the line not Rosie O'Donnell
