Bill O'Reilly Plans Confrontation With Boulder High Students Petitioning For His Apology

Reported by Deborah - June 12, 2007 -

Bill O'Reilly has been very rough on Boulder, Colorado recently over a sex ed forum that he deemed inappropriate. BOR went all out using his usual tactics ambushing school administrators, colluding with local talk radio hosts, and even getting James Dobson to threaten legal action for corrupting Boulder youth. Two Boulder High Students, contacted News Hounds about a petition they had started demanding an apology from Bill O'Reilly for his unfair treatment of Boulder and the response has been incredible. 6/12/07

The Rocky Mountain News reported that there's a school board meeting scheduled tonight, 6/12, to discuss the controversy that's blown up over the World Affairs Forum.The two students Mansur Gidfar and Patrick Garrett, will be speaking to the board about their petition.

Tonight, O'Reilly spoke to Craig Silverman from the KHOW talk radio show that has been sending out the same message as O'Reilly and also feeling the heat from very angry Boulder residents. They interviewed one of the students on June 1st and tried to steer the discussion away from O'Reilly.

Tonight O'Reilly and Silverman were in the victim mode complaining that tonight's meeting would revolve around O'Reilly and Silverman and his co-host Dan Caplis. Silverman said the students were trying to get " brownie points". O'Reilly took his distortions up a notch claiming that the people at the forum advocated sex and drugs for 12,13 and 14 year olds.

O'Reilly finally acknowledged the student petition announcing that the Boulder students who started it would be on The Factor tomorrow, 6/13/07.

comment: Mansur Gidfar, 16, and Patrick Garrett, 17, are really outstanding individuals. Let's hope that Bill O'Reilly treats them with the respect they deserve. They have both stressed that the focus of their petition is on O'Reilly's poor journalistic ethics BOR probably thinks these two young people will be easily overpowered and redirected from their message but I think he's going to get a huge surprise.
