Christine O'Donnell: Press Attacked Me Because I Had The 'Audacity To Challenge The System' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 8th 2010 4:55PM
According to the Pew Research Center, Delaware senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell was the most covered candidate during the 2010 mid-term election, garnering nearly twice as many articles as Rand Paul, who was the second most covered.

What made all the focus so unusual was the fact that O'Donnell never had much of a chance of actually winning her race. She also tried her best to stay away from the national media, which may have only fed into the excessive coverage.

With the election behind her, O'Donnell was willing to appear on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on Fox News), where she offered up an explanation as why she was such a focus of negative press attention.

"It could be I'm a strong woman who had the audacity to challenge the system, and I busted up the back room deals," she explained.

A strong woman who also bravely refused to allow the press to pigeonhole her as a witch, we might add.

Bill O'Reilly Predicts Election Night Suicides at MSNBC (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Nov 2nd 2010 4:30PM
If the pundits and pollsters are correct, and the Republicans do clean up during Tuesday's midterms, Bill O'Reilly thinks viewers might be wise to avert their eyes from liberal-leaning MSNBC's election night coverage.

"I am going to issue a viewer warning right now for children not to watch MSNBC," he said on 'The Factor' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on Fox News.) Because some people may commit suicide, alright? They may set themselves on fire over there, and it would be gruesome to watch that."

Even though O'Reilly was clearly joking, suicide is always a dodgy topic, probably best to be avoided. Nevertheless, MSNBC shouldn't take any offense, as this just gives them another clip to include in their next 'Fox News Are a Bunch of Insensitive Poopy-Heads' montage.

The Best Moments From Jon Stewart's 'Rally to Restore Sanity' (VIDEO)

The Best Moments From Jon Stewart's 'Rally to Restore Sanity'This weekend, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert held their 'Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear' (Sat., 12PM ET on Comedy Central). The rally was a counterpart to Glenn Beck's 'Restoring Honor' march, held a few months back.

The goal was to share political views in an inoffensive manner. Moderation was the ideal; Stewart showed video clips of media figures (such as Mr. Beck) who supposedly used polarizing speech.

Since the event was hosted by comedians, the whole thing was a joke -- or was it? A bunch of celebs attended, including Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock, and Sheryl Crow. But Stewart stopped the music and jokes to deliver this message: "I thought we might have a moment ... for some sincerity. ... I can't control what people think this was. I can only tell you my intentions."

Clint Eastwood Is Not a Fan of What President Obama is Doing at the Moment (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 26th 2010 4:32PM
On 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays 8 PM on Fox News) Bill O'Reilly kept his viewers up to date on what two of the nation's foremost film directors think about how President Obama is doing.

First he played a clip of Spike Lee, who believes that Obama has been held up to impossible to achieve, Jesus-like standards. "He's not walking on water, but they're trying to nail him to the cross though," Lee explained, laughing.

Clint Eastwood, on the other hand, was his usual calm self when he stated his displeasure with Obama's job performance during a web interview with Katie Couric:

"I think he's nice a fellow," Eastwood said. "I enjoyed watching him campaign and winning the job, but I'm not a fan of what he is doing at the moment."

"I just don't think he's governing," Eastwood continued. "I don't think he is surrounding himself with the people he could have surrounded himself with."

Eastwood and Lee have have some pretty high profile disagreements in the past, so it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that the disagree on what currently ails President Obama.

Bill O'Reilly Tells Juan Williams He's Better Off After Getting Fired by NPR (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 22nd 2010 2:02PM
Juan Williams comments Monday on "The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on Fox News) about how he feels nervous when he sees men in Muslim garb at airports got him fired from NPR, and have thrust him into the national spotlight. On Thursday, he returned to 'The Factor," where O'Reilly offered him words of encouragement.

"This is good for you," O'Reilly said about Williams' firing.

"What?" Williams responded, incredulously.

"You're going to get a big book contract to write about what you can and can't say in America," O'Reilly explained. "Number two, you're going to get to host 'The Factor' tomorrow night . . . number 3, everybody likes you now . . . number four, Congress in going to de-fund NPR and they are going to lose all their public money."

Williams seemed genuinely distraught by the firing, and O'Reilly's words seemed to cheer him up.

And O'Reilly didn't even mention the new three year, $2 million contract Fox News gave Williams in the wake of his dismissal from NPR -- which would put a smile on any man's face.

Juan Williams Comments on Being Fired From NPR (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 21st 2010 2:54PM
Earlier this week, on 'The O'Reilly Factor,' Fox News commentator Juan Williams said he gets "nervous" when he is on an airplane and he sees men wearing "Muslim garb." In the wake of those comments, NPR fired Williams, who had also worked for the public radio station as a contract commentator.

Appearing on 'Happening Now' (weekdays, 11 AM ET on Fox News) Williams addressed his sudden termination by NPR:

"Wednesday afternoon I got a message on my cell phone from Ellen Weiss, who's the head of news at NPR, asking me to call. When I called back she said, 'What did you say, what did you mean to say?' and I said 'I said what I meant to say.' Which is that it's an honest experience in an airport when I see people who are in Muslim garb who identify themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I do a double take, I have a moment of anxiety or fear given what happened on 9/11. That's just the reality."

Then, according to Williams, Weiss accused him of making a bigoted statement, which Williams denied. Then Weiss told Williams that the decision to terminate his employment was final. There would be no further review of the matter, or opportunity for Williams, who had worked at NPR for ten years, to meet with management face-to-face.

There is more to this story than Williams' comments alone: NPR has long been uncomfortable with his dual role on NPR and Fox News. In fact, they had previously asked Fox News to stop mentioning Williams' affiliation with NPR when he appeared on the cable channel, because they believed it made it seem like Williams was expressing opinions on NPR's behalf, not just his own.

In 'The Factor' segment in question, O'Reilly had, at one point, mentioned Williams does work for NPR.

If Williams wasn't just fired for what he said, but also because of Fox News' continued mentioning of his NPR affiliation, that's fine. But NPR needs to say this publicly. If they don't, NPR runs the risk of looking callous and overly attuned to political correctness. After all, Williams was only expressing an honest emotion that many Americans would probably admit to feeling in similar circumstances. That alone shouldn't be a firing offense.

Bill O'Reilly Explains Why He Said 'Muslims' Attacked US on 9/11 (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 15th 2010 2:06PM
After Bill O'Reilly's blow-up with Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar on 'The View,' which took place after he said "Muslims attacked us on 9/11," O'Reilly explained to 'The View''s audience that when he said Muslims, he meant Muslim extremists.

On 'The Factor' (weekdays 8 PM ET on Fox News), O'Reilly amended that explanation during a discussion with Laura Ingraham, saying he is sick of having to add the word 'extremist,' when describing the Muslims who attacked us on 9/11, because he believes the "extremist" is implied.

"You must say 'Muslim extremist,' and I submit to you, and everybody watching, that after ten years we got it. We know the difference between peace abiding Muslims, and people who make war under the banner of Islam," O'Reilly explained.

"Did we say in World War Two that we were attacked by Japanese extremists or German extremists?" O'Reilly continued. "We said we were attacked by the Japanese. We were attacked by Muslims, that's who attacked us."

Ingraham must have agreed with O'Reilly, because she didn't storm off of the set.

Dylan Ratigan Responds to Drama Between Bill O'Reilly and 'The View' With Epic Anti-War Rant (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 15th 2010 1:25PM
Appearing on 'Morning Joe' (weekdays 6 AM ET on MSNBC), Dylan Ratigan emphatically expressed his opinion that the media and our politicians are distorting the nature of our enemy in the Islamic world by not focusing their sights solely on Saudi Arabia and Wahhibi extremists.

"There is a core issue here," Ratigan explained. "Which is there is a small group of well-funded Wahhabi extremists, funded by the Saudi Arabian government, to whom we gave money. . . Those guns, that money, to Wahhabi extremist Muslims in Saudi Arabia. The only ones who have ever killed us. Them."

"We are not at war with Islam, we are not war with Muslims, we are not at war with Afghanistan, we are not at war with Iraq, Iran, it's nonsense," Ratigan continued.

Then he opined that the media and our political leaders do everyone a dangerous disservice when they don't single out Wahhabi extremist Muslims from Saudi Arabia, "as the only people who have funded a terrorist attack, from that part of the world, on us."

Ratigan has long been known for ability to fire off seemingly off-the-cuff, but articulate, rants. He may have just delivered his most epic one yet.

Hillary Clinton Might Really Want Joe Biden's Job, Says Body Language Expert (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 14th 2010 3:52PM
Lately, there's been a lot of talk that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden may switch jobs in 2012. So much so that Biden felt the need to affirm his position on Obama's 2012 ticket at a recent event.

Hillary has also denied a switch is in the cards. However, body language expert Tonya Reiman, appearing on 'The O'Reilly Factor,' (weekdays, 8 PM on Fox News) analyzed some recent footage of Secretary Clinton talking about Biden and came to a different conclusion.

"I think the Vice President is doing a wonderful job," Clinton says in the clip that Reiman analyzed for O'Reilly. "We have a great relationship. . . . and I think both of us are very happy doing what we are doing."

"When she says we're doing a great job, she's doing the head negation, which tells me she's not really sure he's doing a good job," Reiman told O'Reilly.

Reiman then added that the shoulder shrugs Clinton was rather noticeably doing throughout her statement directly contradicted her words.

The fact Hillary might really pine for Biden's post, and all the controversy and hoopla which would go with that potential switch, was music to O'Reilly's ears.

Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck Disagree on Firefighters' Obligations in Tennessee House Fire (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 11th 2010 4:27PM
On 'The O'Reilly Factor' (weekdays 8 PM ET on Fox News) Bill O'Reilly and Glenn Beck weren't able to agree on how firefighters should have responded to a Tennessee house fire they let burn because the homeowner hadn't paid a $75 fire protection fee.

"I don't know how the fireman stood there and didn't do it, but they had to. "Beck said. "Look, this is community . . . they didn't have any fire coverage before. Everybody's house burned down. They said, we need fireman, how are we going to do it -- everybody paid $75."

O'Reilly disagreed, saying the fireman should have put out the flames, and then charged the delinquent homeowner the full cost of doing so.

"You know what you're proposing?" Beck asked O'Reilly. "Obamacare." Beck then said, claiming that under the health care bill congress passed last year, people will be able to hold off on buying insurance until they get a serious disease like cancer.

As usual, we recognize Beck for his uncanny ability to tie every news story to his distaste for Barack Obama.

Although, in this case, it needs to be mentioned that the only reason this story received national attention in the first place is because Keith Olbermann, a cable news talker on the other side of political spectrum, thought it helped him score a point against the Tea Party.

Bill O'Reilly Credits Janet Napolitano For Her Efforts on Illegal Immigration (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 7th 2010 3:25PM
Considering how often Bill O'Reilly rails against the Obama administration's policies on illegal immigration, his 'Factor' (weekdays 8 PM ET on Fox News) interview with Secretary of Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano had the potential to be quite explosive.

However, it didn't turn out that way, as O'Reilly was calm and respectful, and at times even complimentary of Napoltino's efforts in her post:

"I gave the Obama administration a lot of credit for this crackdown (on illegal immigrants), O'Reilly told Napolitano. "They're doing a lot more than the Bush administration ever did."

Maybe it was the recent poll that rated O'Reilly the pundit that has the positive effect on American politics, or the Jon Stewart quip that he has become the "fairest person in the temple of doom," but O'Reilly does seem be making an effort to be more "balanced" both in his opinions and the topics he covers lately.

Which is all the more notable at time when many of his colleagues -- both at Fox News and elsewhere -- seem to be going in another direction.

Bill O'Reilly Alleges The Democrats Might Steal Some Elections in 2010 (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 6th 2010 12:53PM
Bill O'Reilly and Newt Gingrich were talking about the mid-term elections on 'The O'Reilly Factor' (Weekdays, 8 PM ET on Fox News) Tuesday, and while both men believe the Republicans are going to pick up seats, Gingrich was more optimistic. The reason? O'Reilly thinks the Democratic machine in certain cities will turn to malfeasance if they don't get the votes they need.

"Let's put it this way, if you have to bet right now, I'd feel comfortable betting on Sharon Angle in Nevada and the guy in West Virginia," O'Reilly explained. "I think Illinois and Washington State -- and I know how these election go, in King County, the Seattle area, and in Cook County, the Chicago area . . . it's not honest . . . so if it's close . . . I know the entrenched power in the Chicago area, and the Seattle area, is Democrat."

There have long been rumblings that elections in the Seattle area aren't always on the up-and-up. But to get lumped in there with Chicago's Cook County, corruption center of the Western world? That's big time, Seattle.
