Will O'Reilly appear on The Colbert Report?

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 3rd 2007 7:28PM

o'reilly and colbertSay what you want about Bill O'Reilly (and I know you will), but the man has no qualms about stepping into the ring with those who disagree with him. He's appeared on both The Daily Show and Late Show with David Letterman, so why would he be shy about appearing on The Colbert Report, a show that, in many ways, owes its existence, or at the very least, its aesthetic, to The O'Reilly Factor? I've said here before I actually liked O'Reilly before his ego outgrew him, but I still love to watch his appearances on Letterman. As annoyed as Dave seems when O'Reilly is on, you know deep down he revels in those confrontational moments.

While neither FoxNews nor Comedy Central has confirmed it, rumors are abound that O'Reilly, or "Papa Bear," as Colbert is fond of calling him, might be appearing on The Colbert Report sometime soon. Colbert, who gave a picture of O'Reilly to the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, recently returned to reclaim the picture in anticipation of an upcoming appearance by O'Reilly, or so Esten Perez, Institute of Politics Director of Communications says. O'Reilly himself received a Master in Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government in 1996.

Destroy the upper middle class??? Are you serious?? Conservatives want two classes of people the upper class and the lower class or slaves if you will. Conservatives been waging a war on the middle class since Ronny Reagan. Conservatives don't want the middle class who have to work their arses of to get by to have no health care, no retirement, no nothing. They want everyone working for minimum wage while they sit their fat greedy buts behind a desk and do nothing but collect millions and millions of dollars as others suffer and die around them. They can goto hell. Take away rights?? The conservatives are the ones who want the patriot act and people to read your mail and wiretapping. That is taking away rights. Sorry if you can't carry a gun around, you afraid someone will want to kill you?? If our founding forefathers knew about all the wars created by these greedy old bastards in the white house in order to make an extra buck they would puke. America is not a business it is a nation of great people but right now it is nothing more than a murderous bunch of corporate corrupt thugs who deserve everything that comes their way.

One more thing. You say liberals founded this country. By definition liberals are the ones spitting in the face of the people who did found this country. They wrote the constitution the way they did for a reason, not so you idiots could twist it any way you see fit.

Your comments: Ok, lets have some education time. The terms liberal and conservative refer to one's interpretation of the constitution. Conservative means that one interprets the constitution as it is written. Free speech means free speech no matter what. The right to bear arms means the right to bear arms, etc. Liberal means free speech as long as you don't offend a liberal. The right to bear arms means the right to bear arms as long as it doesn't offend a liberal. You people are facist pigs who try to take away my rights and destroy the upper middle class. Americans caught by terrorists are beheaded on television. Terrorists caught by americans are given the same rights as american citizens because of you. Seriously, there are american soldiers in jail for taking degrading pictures of these bastards because of you! When does it end? Its insane.

#56 I guess O'Reilly is a registered Independant so he must be. That news isn't liberal, i stand by that. Faux news is a joke i'm waiting for some more Natalie Holloway news and the runaway bride news. Fox news might as well be like the fox stations with their trash and reality garbage. Fox news and O'Reilly in particular just leads you sheep along and tells you what to think about issues because his opinion is the only one that matters and if he disagrees with you he gets angry. He talks to his audience like they are a bunch of morons , talking real slow and repeating his bs, makes me laugh. You probaly think we are still winning the made up war in Iraq because Fox tells you we are when we been getting our butts handed to us, and the left been saying war in Iraq was corrupt and a mistake since day one , and it is. Conservative radio tells the truth??? Lmao....I have never heard more filth coming out of the radio then these fat slob conservatives who sit there and spew hate as they sit on their fat greedy arses. None of thee conservatives would ever think of fighting in a war. Conservatives are nothing more then cowards who talk a good game and claim their using facts.

Lefties get some ideas??? Liberals founded this country and conservabots and their narrow minded thought process want to destroy it. Most conservatives say their christians, thats laughable. As for the war on Christmas?? Instead of selling Jesus out and being more concerned about jesus being sold in stores try a little more to act like Christains. Nothing worse then Christian hypocrits. Jesus was more socialist then greedy capitialist, you rt wing blowhards make me laugh.

I am a liberal, straight and true.

I also like George Will. I kinda like Tony Blankley. I don't like Bill O'Reilly. Not because he's conservative, but because he's a blowhard. And I don't like Cindy Sheehan.
There are people who exemplify caricature and there are people who defy it. It seems to me like people on both sides of the aisle seem to take great pleasure in identifying with the caricatures instead of seeking out people who are intelligent and can have a debate without having to raise their voice.

Colbert isn't just a caricature, folks; he's a self-aware caricature OF A CARICATURE. That's what makes his show so awesome.

If so, it will be great fodder for all the people who think Colbert is actually SERIOUS about what he says on his show. If people cannot grasp that The Colbert Report is a satire, I worry about their ability to discern fact from fiction (or propoganda) on ANY news network! And seriously people - what's with all the nastiness?

Colbert is one of the funniest of all talk shows. One question I believe he should ask O'Reilly is why he, together with Rush and all of the administration, never served in the military. As a veteran, I don't understand why they or their children aren't signing up.

Bill O'Really is a hardcore conservative that speaks his mind on his show. Stephen Colbert is a real person, that is also a caricature of hardcore conservatives, speaking their mind, on his own show. The Colbert Report broadcasts on Comedy Central. The Daily Show with Jon Stewart also broadcasts from the same network. Both shows lampoon political issues of the day, and make us think, and laugh at the same time.
Laughter is the ultimate reality check in my book, but some people choose to be the hardcore ideologues, they refuse to see the lighter things to what is said or done.
There is a war going on, there is hardship in foreign lands, as well as here in the United States. Why can't we all just take a step back and look at it and make fun of it? Laughter is the best medicine, after all, as many people have observed.
This country was founded on puritanical ideologies, but this country is also a melting pot of cultures; idealogues; dreams; and the belief in the American Dream. What if our clothes aren't as white as they should be? What if our cars aren't as powerful as they sould be? Does it really matter in the end? We, as a people, cannot predict the future of mankind (other than the Earth is going to get hotter and we will all die someday). In the words of Rodney King (a felon and the cause of the L.A. riots)..."Why can't we all get along?"
Oh yeah, it's all because we are bigots, and want to see people imprisoned for crimes that are committed that we all (or mostly) committ.
Just and interesting factoid... Most porn is purchased by christians fundamentalists; are they buying it for personnal reasons, or to demonize it in the church? Either way, they contribute the most dollars to the pornographic industry. You feed the devil that you seek to destroy. Christianity is the work of the devil, because he can divide, and conquer, through your ignorance. Skoal, Copenhagen, and Levi Garrett use does not guarantee you a spot in heaven. True acts of retribution of your sins can though.
By the way... I'm an athiestically inclined satanic agnostic buddhist. I'm an American and I have the right to say what's on my mind! Fuck you Hannity! Fuck you O'Reilly (does he have anything to do with the auto parts giant? Maybe that's why cars don't last so long now.)
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are the new Desciples!
Every one else can join or die at the hands of the new Romans! lmaorotf
