Make that lack of research…

Bill O’Reilly claims that “[f]air-minded Americans know that playing the race card is easy and hateful. The only thing we can find about Rush Limbaugh is that he thinks quarterback Donovan McNabb is overrated by some people who want black quarterbacks to succeed.” O’Reilly needs to fire his research staff, or learn to use Google himself… Here’s what he should have found, and aired, if he wanted to be “fair and balanced:”

Not only does O’Reilly prove that his research is biased, inept, or nonexistent, he distorted reality in regarding to Media Matters For America’s reporting of O’Reilly’s own comments.

OREILLY: Now, I’ve been through this. A couple years ago, I said on the radio that having dinner in Harlem at Sylvia’s Restaurant was the same as having dinner anywhere in America. The context was my grandmother, who was very afraid of blacks, even though she never even met a black person. Her fear was irrational. And I made that point quite clearly.

But the vicious website Media Matters put forth I was denigrating a black-owned restaurant. And some people actually believed it without even listening to the radio broadcast, which I posted on so everybody could hear it. Well, there goes my NFL career.

Actually, MMFA provided the audio and transcript. Here’s what O’Reilly said about Sylvia’s Restaurant in Harlem:

And I couldn’t get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia’s restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship.

    When I think about O’Reilly, Limbaugh, etc…I feel highly agitated. These people are trying to divide this country, harm our President Obama and bring us once again to our knees. I am white,catholic,ex-republican and am so ashamed of these people, I can hardly bear it. I will do all and everything to see that they are not victorious!! Onward and upward all Obama followers…

    The NFL decides who becomes an owner not the other way around.

    All this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has to offer is his money and his opinions, (which in my opinion are on the fringes of racism, one mans opinion). There are many more groups biding for the Rams, not just his group. Lets face it there are more men with money (Marshall Faulk) that will gladly fill the slot and the Rams will win or lose depending on how well they work as a team and not on whether or not Rush is an owner.

    As for Vick, well he is a player (he has talent not like you, Rush or I, unless you are a NFL player?) and he served his time and the NFL decided we live in the land of second chances, so why not (I personally don’t like it but, oh well). Life has never been fair (NEWS FLASH!)

    Now as to the “Free Speech” argument, I guess many of you like myself heard Rush on Thursday “Almost in tears”, priceless. But the last couple of days he now is in his normal ranting and will continue until someone surpasses him, “Free Speech” continues, so what is being stifled, it simply is not true, of course, you may not have a radio, so you might want to get one.

    PS – I am sure someone is working to put the tapes together maybe all you subscribers can help, since you are all about getting to the truth?

    PPS- Beauty Pageant Judge – Now I understand why he lost the weight, to find a new wife, creepy.
