Bill O'Reilly In Rosie Overdrive

Reported by Deborah - April 4, 2007 -

Bill O'Reilly is a man on a mission for sure and he will not rest until Rosie O'Donnell, ABC and Disney are sufficiently punished. Viewers were treated to four segments on the subject tonight and although he claimed there is no feud between himself and O'Donnell, his attitude was far from friendly calling her Tokyo Rosie. Disney also took some serious heat and there could be a shipment of Boycott Magic Kingdom bumper stickers in the works. However, it became clear that O'Reilly is crossing over into Dick Morris territory during his segment with Dave Zeeck, Tacoma News-Tribune

As Chrish reported, Terry Keenan and Charles Payne came on to discuss Corporate America and the ideological war which turned out to be all about Rosie O'Donnell. One might think that was sufficient for one show but not for Bill O'Reilly.
Dave Zeeck, Tacoma New-Tribune was booked to discuss his belief that there is no liberal bias in the media. Zeeck seemed like a well balanced, pragmatic person who wasn't at all flustered by O'Reilly. Zeeck probably didn't realize beforehand that his segment was going to be all about Rosie O'Donnell and Ann Coulter.

O'Reilly was all miffed because the MSM villified Coulter for calling John Edwards a faggot but hasn't said anything about O'Donnell's comments. It took Zeeck a few seconds to figure out what BOR was talking about and then claimed he hadn't noticed a difference in coverage. Zeeck made it clear that he didn't think it mattered too much either. Zeeck didn't seem like the kind of guy who gives one moments thought to Ann Coulter or The View.

That didn't stop BOR from carrying on about O'Donnell and defending Coulter. Of course, he wouldn't let his rant about Coulter go beyond the Edwards comment. There was no talk of Coulter's horrendous comments about the 9/11 Widows in New Jersey. O'Reilly got annoyed with Zeeck's insistance that he saw no liberal bias in print media. When Zeeck calmly suggested he was confusing editorials with news, it was bye bye Zeeck.

Then when it seemed there was nothing left to say and one more mention of O'Donnell would be way too much, he did it again with the Most Ridiculous Item of the Day somehow finding a new variation on the same theme. This carried over into the e-mail segment where every single e-mail was Rosie related and 98% negative.

comment: When I heard that Dennis Miller is scheduled for tommorrow night to talk about Rosie O'Donnell on The Factor, I wondered if he would consider doing an intervention with his old friend Bill. Seems like the time has come.
