Bill O'Reilly Does A Blog Rotation from DailyKos To Huffington Post

Reported by Deborah - September 14, 2007 -

Bill O'Reilly tried to go after The Huffington Post tonight but Tim Graham, Media Research Center, was so unconvincing that even BOR seemed unimpressed with his evidence. It seems Graham did a special report on The Huffington Post making him an expert on the evil practices of Arianna Huffington and the demon celebrities who post there. When BOR asked Graham for three of the worst posts he found there, his choices were hardly earth shattering.

The first example from Graham was a post by Alec Baldwin. Baldwin wrote about his fantasy of killing Bin Laden, throwing his body off the balcony and then seeing it land on Dick Cheney.

"At that instant, Osama Bin Laden comes out of a door. He is oblivious. I make my move. Bin Laden reacts, but too late. We tumble into his upper floor suite. I have him in my grasp and, conveniently, I spy a box cutter on the table. (Hey...it’s a fantasy.) Osama struggles, swearing at me in his native tongue, until I jam the box cutter into his neck. I do it again. Fading, Bin Laden says (this time in English for my benefit) “Good luck with 30 Rock. I am a big Tina Fey fan.” I gather up the body of the world’s most notorious terrorist and hurl it over the balcony. Then, in the final stroke of luck, bin Laden lands on Dick Cheney"

Graham was sure Bill would be shocked and disgusted but ,expecting some real filth, BOR looked disappointed. He told Graham he could understand Baldwin wanting to kill Bin Laden and he wasn't offended adding that Baldwin was immature. Also, Graham did not not read the Baldwin quote on air but instead tried to make the case that Baldwin's main point was to kill Cheney.

Next he used a post with a quote from Hunter S. Thompson by John Cusack. Graham was raving about the profanity and Bill was starting to perk up until he discovered that it was a quote. Graham wasn't real clear about that point or anything he tried to say about Cusack's blogging crime. Here's the post by Cusack.

The third shocker was a post about Tony Snow and cancer which Graham admitted up front was taken off the blog by Huffington. BOR wanted to know who wrote it and if he worked for Huffington. Again there was nothing juicy for O'Reilly to use later.

Comment: O'Reilly made the lame point that Huffington Post is blocked if you have one of those childrens censoring devices on your computer. That must mean it's really, really bad. However, my school has that software and my students have been blocked from The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Graceland and Garfield. That's some nasty stuff for sure.

I'm sure BOR won't give up. His loyal producers will be digging for dirt and no doubt something dark and dangerous will emerge.
