Bill O'Reilly Brands Tom Hanks With Big Scarlet L

Reported by Deborah - July 11, 2007 -

America, consider yourselves warned! Bill O'Reilly announced last night, 7/10, that Tom Hanks is a "committed far left guy". BOR said Hanks was the biggest "showbiz" contributor to " far left zealot" Al Franken. Can we ever really appreciate Forrest Gump or Sleepless in Seattle again?

Bill has been so busy with Rosie O'Donnell, John Edwards and the Boulder High kids that he hasn't smeared Al Franken since April 24th. It was long overdue so he devoted his ridiculous items segment to exposing those nasty Hollywood L's who contributed to Al Franken's campaign. He even had pictures for his lineup.

O'Reilly claimed Franken was way down in the polls in his Senate race with Norm Coleman and suggested there was something sinister about the contributions from the entertainment industry.
Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas got top billing with their pictures placed under a dignified graphic, $tewart $malley Donors. The line up continued with shots of Kevin Bacon, Paul Newman, Linda Ronstadt, Jane Curtin,Kevin Kline, Rob Reiner, Gary Trudeau, Larry David and Bill Maher.

This smear was probably motivated by the AP article from 7/9 reporting that Franken had raised more money in the last period than Coleman or his Democratic rival. The article also states that 95% of the 2 million raised came from donations $100. or less. No doubt, O'Reilly just didn't have time to include those pesky details.
