I can't help but wonder if Bill would have defended Biden so vehemently. Hahahaha. Not really. I know better. Thank goodness she won't be the VP. I hope she does fade away in Alaska, though I know with her ambition and the way the GOP and talking heads love her, they will simply try to groom her. And as Bill says, "tutor" her. She's not a "stupid woman," she's just not as smart as your average fifth grader.

O'Reilly reups at Fox News for $10 million a year [Oct. 23rd, 2008|09:01 am]
The O'Really? Factor

By Paul J. Gough Paul J. Gough 2 hrs 18 mins ago

NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) – Bill O'Reilly has re-upped with Fox News Channel in a multiyear deal that pays him about $10 million a year to host his top-rated news program, "The O'Reilly Factor."

The former ABC correspondent has found unprecedented success at Fox, which he joined in 1996. "The O'Reilly Factor" has been the top-rated cable news program for 94 months, with an average nightly viewership of 4 million people.

"Bill O'Reilly is the most prominent and influential name in all of cable news, and his contribution to the network's success cannot be overstated," Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said.

O'Reilly took a shot at his detractors, saying that if he retired, "I know my friends in the elite media would miss me greatly."

Meanwhile, Fox News Channel has been locking up many of its key stars, including O'Reilly, Sean Hannity (who re-signed recently) and anchor Shepard Smith, as well as luring CNN Headline News host Glenn Beck to anchor a 5 p.m. program.

The O'Really? Factor

I don't normally do posts like this, but I think you're all rad and would love your insight.

I am interested in organizing a protest against the DMC Pharmacy in Chantilly VA, a pro-life pharmacy that refuses to stock any kind of contraception (from HBC to condoms). My friends and I live and work in the area and we wanted to picket it's opening (which has either just happened or will happen soon). I've been to protests before but I've never organized one. Besides lawn chairs, signs, and ourselves, what else should we bring? Any suggestions for signs? Any suggestions in general?
We're researching what they do and don't stock beforehand so we'll be more informed. One idea we have is if they sell Viagra and/or Valtrex, have a sign about how ridiculous it is that they have that and not any type of contraception. We're also going to wander around the pharmacy and see if they have ANYTHING in the way of a family planning aisle or a feminine care/hygiene aisle, then ask about Plan B (which they definitely won't have) and a list of HIV/AIDS medications. Maybe we can incorporate that info into our signs.
Thanks for your help, y'all! If anyone is in the NOVA area and would like to come, please let me know. We don't have a date set-up yet but we hope to do this SOON.

Daily Kos has some really gross observations... [Sep. 6th, 2008|02:09 pm]
The O'Really? Factor

O'Reilly appears to be suggesting that Sarah Palin whored out her daughter. Or something similar. Because I can't imagine any other interpretation of the facts.

Good luck to him.

The O'Really? Factor

"With less than six months left in office, George W. Bush has already been branded one of the worst Presidents in history by some in the left-wing press. To them, Bush is the worst thing to happen in America since the advent of talk radio.

To be fair (something the liberal media rarely is), President Bush was dealt a tough hand. Less than one year into his first term, Muslim assassins in civilian clothing started a worldwide war. To his credit, Bush has fought that war tough, if not always smart.

The campaign against terror has occupied most of the President's time. Therefore, things like illegal immigration, energy prices and the nation's airline system, which became enormous problems on Bush's watch, were not dealt with aggressively. Thus, the President will leave office in a few months saddled with very low approval ratings."

This is a quote from Bill O'Reilly's weekly column. Do you agree or disagree with this? Why or why not?

Disrespecting Tony
By Bill O'Reilly for BillOReilly.com
Thursday, Jul 17, 2008
The recent death of Tony Snow brought sadness to millions of Americans who admired the man's public service and optimism about his country. But not everybody felt the need to honor Mr. Snow. Just hours after he died from cancer, the Associated Press released an obituary that has shocked some people and badly damaged the AP's image, at least in the conservative community.

AP reporter Douglass Daniel began the article by listing some of Tony's accomplishments, but then suddenly veered into ideological territory, writing: "With a quick-from-the-lip repartee, broadcaster's good looks and a relentlessly bright outlook-if not always a command of the facts-he became a popular figure around the country to the delight of his White House bosses...

"Critics suggested that Snow was turning the traditionally informational daily briefing into a personality-driven media event short on facts and long on confrontation."

Now, remember, that was written just hours after the man passed away at age 53. To accuse Mr. Snow of factual inaccuracies without citing evidence is itself irresponsible, but to do it in an obit is outrageously inappropriate and an insult to the Snow family. If the Associated Press wants to do an opinion piece about Tony Snow's public service, fine. But at least wait until after the funeral.

The AP's treatment of Tony was in marked contrast to its sendoff for the late Tim Russert. That obituary was a glowing tribute to the man, as it should have been. Russert had a lot in common with Snow. They both worked for political guys; Russert's boss was the late Democratic Senator Daniel Patrick Moynahan, and they both hosted Sunday morning network news programs.

But while Russert was suitably honored by the AP, Snow came in for some snarky jibes.

Of course, this is all about ideology. The Associated Press has no use for President Bush and, increasingly, that opinion has creeped into its hard news coverage. And this is a serious situation. The AP is America's primary news service; its dispatches go out to thousands of media organizations all over the world, many of which simply print whatever the AP sends them.

And, increasingly, the AP is sending them opinion, not fact.

The head of the Associated Press, Tom Curley, told my producers he "stands by the obituary," so we invited him on the Factor to defend it. Immediately, Curley turned standing into running away. He refused to come on the program or issue a further statement.

I think Curley's treatment of Tony Snow should be included in his own obituary. And furthermore, the Associated Press may now be dead as an objective news organization.

How ironic that one obit could so quickly lead to another.

Bill's Pink Brick [Jun. 13th, 2008|10:15 am]
The O'Really? Factor

From Bill's website:

The San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration Committee awarded Bill their "Pink Brick" award for his alleged disservice to the gay community, but we're putting the award to good use! You can bid on Bill's "Pink Brick," with all proceeds from the auction going to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Plus, Bill will match the winning bid. Good luck!

You are such a hero, Bill. You fucking asshole.
