Bill O’Reilly Manipulates Video of Joan Walsh Interview

Last week, Joan Walsh of Salon.com, was interviewed by Bill O’Reilly, who probably regretted that decision all weekend. That may be why he decided to re-air the interview. But would he dare air the full interview? Of course not.

Without Ms. Walsh there to respond, O’Reilly manipulated the video to remove the facts she provided and to show that it’s the crazy liberals who have no regard for “murdered” babies. O’Reilly also repeated his unverified and illogical arguments about the procedures and the numbers performed.

According to O’Reilly, Dr. Tiller performed 60,000 late term abortions, which were legal, BTW. If you do the math, that would be more than 16 late term abortions per day, 7 days a week for 10 years. Nevermind that the procedure is rare and highly regulated.

Bill O’Reilly Questions Importance of Holocaust Museum Shooting

Bill O’Reilly has repeatedly criticized other networks for the amount of reporting they have done on other recent killings. Bill O’Reilly, the guy who doesn’t speak of the killing at the Holocaust Museum, other than to question whether or not it’s newsworthy…

O’REILLY: Now, this is an 89-year-old anti-Semite bigot kills an innocent guy in the Holocaust Museum. OK? Now, what about the newsworthiness of this? … Is it as newsworthy as Private Long?

More Connections Between Fox News and Tiller Murder

Dr. George Tiller, the OB-GYN who performed late-term abortions, was shot and killed this past weekend and this week much has been coming out about his past and possible connections between what happened and Fox News.

The alleged murderer, Scott Roeder, supposedly posted the following on an Operation Rescue web site in 2007:

It seems as though what is happening in Kansas could be compared to the “lawlessness” which is spoken of in the Bible. Tiller is the concentration camp “Mengele” of our day and needs to be stopped before he and those who protect him bring judgement upon our nation.

There were 29 episodes of The O’Reilly Factor that mentioned Dr. George Tiller with hateful, sometimes violent, language. Some examples were mentioned on BradBlog.

O’Reilly continued his series of programs focusing on the Kansas physician, charging him with “operating a death mill” (video here), and alleging that he was “executing babies” (video here).

O’Reilly had previously been highly critical of the state’s Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, charging, during his “Talking Points” commentary in 2007, that she was “allowing [Tiller] to continue the slaughter.”

The idea that Bill O’Reilly‘s inciteful language was influential for people, like Roeder, was furthered by Salon’s Gabriel Winant.

Tiller’s name first appeared on The Factor on Feb. 25, 2005. Since then, O’Reilly and his guest hosts have brought up the doctor on 28 more episodes, including as recently as April 27 of this year. Almost invariably, Tiller is described as “Tiller the Baby Killer.”

Tiller, O’Reilly likes to say, “destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000.” He’s guilty of “Nazi stuff,” said O’Reilly on June 8, 2005; a moral equivalent to NAMBLA and al-Qaida, he suggested on March 15, 2006. “This is the kind of stuff happened in Mao’s China, Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union,” said O’Reilly on Nov. 9, 2006.

O’Reilly has also frequently linked Tiller to his longtime obsession, child molestation and rape. Because a young teenager who received an abortion from Tiller could, by definition, have been a victim of statutory rape, O’Reilly frequently suggested that the clinic was covering up for child rapists (rather than teenage boyfriends) by refusing to release records on the abortions performed.

The New York Times also reported on the possible connection, providing quotes and details from several sources.

Within nine hours of Dr. Tiller’s death, Salon magazine had catalogued references to him on 29 episodes of “The O’Reilly Factor” from 2005 to 2009. In one, Mr. O’Reilly talks about him and the lawmakers who supported his “business of destruction,” saying, “I wouldn’t want to be these people if there is a Judgment Day.”

Bloggers quickly found new examples of Mr. O’Reilly’s condemnation of Dr. Tiller. A commenter on Daily Kos noted that Mr. O’Reilly once sent a producer to ambush the doctor at his home in Kansas. After the producer told him that some people called him a “baby killer,” the doctor tried to leave his house and called 911. The camera crew ended the confrontation.

The murderer is responsible for his own actions, but influences cannot be denied. The question then becomes, was he influenced by the hateful and violent rhetoric from people like Bill O’Reilly. We’re not likely to know unless he specifically states what incited his actions. Regardless, the use of such language is sickening, to say the least.

O’Reilly Blames NBC & Progressives for Army Recruiting Center Attack

So, not only does Bill O’Reilly blame “far-left zealots” and “Fox News haters” for exploiting the murder of Dr. George Tiller, but, according to him, they’re also to blame for the shooting outside of an Army recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas. The gunman, identified by the police as Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad of Little Rock, was upset with the killing of Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan.

O’REILLY: Since they have been unrelenting in describing their country as a torture nation, I’m sure that set this muslim guy off to kill one and wound another of our military and I’m sure that’s NBC’s fault. Look, the absurdity of this is beyond the pale.

Bill O’Reilly is full of crap. It had nothing to do with anybody “describing their country as a torture nation.” The U.S. is, in fact, a nation that has tortured, under the Bush Administration, and it is involved in two wars with Muslim countries, thanks to the Bush Administration. Those are the facts, neither of which have anything to do NBC, or progressive bloggers, and more to do with Bush and Cheney.

O’Reilly is correct about one thing though: “the absurdity of this is beyond pale.”

NYTimes Address O’Reilly’s Connection To Doctor Killer

As you probably have heard by now, especially if you follow this blog and watched the Keith Olberman video posted yesterday, many people are placing the blame of Dr. George Tiller’s death on Bill O’Reilly‘s shoulders. At least, blaming him for inciting violence against Dr. Tiller.

Here are a few choice things O’Reilly has said over the years about Dr. Tiller:

  • “Tiller the baby killer”
  • “blood on his hands”
  • “I wouldn’t want to be these people if there is a Judgment Day”
  • “If I could get my hands on Tiller…”

Over the past four or five years, it has been documented, Bill O’Reilly referenced Dr. Tiller 29 times! Make that 29 separate episodes of The O’Reilly Factor. At one point, he even sicked favorite ambush journalist, Jesse Watters, on Dr. Tiller, who was forced to call 911.

Of course, Bill O’Reilly was quick to blame “far-left zealots” and “Fox News haters.” While he claims that everything he said about Dr. Tiller was true, it does little to assuage the fact that it’s the number of incidents and the language used that are the real issues. It can also be said that, based on the quotes listed above, O’Reilly included hurtful subjective rhetoric that has no place on a “news” channel, or he is an absolute liar.

Olbermann Retires O’Reilly Schtick, Quarantines Fox News

If you’re not aware of who Dr. George Tiller is, he’s the doctor who was recently murdered, allegedly, because he performed late-term abortions and was therefore dubbed “Tiller the Baby Killer” by Bill O’Reilly and his ilk. Of course, Bill O’Reilly doesn’t see any fault of his own, but instead blames the liberals for using Dr. Tiller’s death against Fox News.

This is a must watch, a must forward and a must talk about piece from Keith Olbermann. Regardless of your views of how biased you think his show is, he does a great job covering Bill O’Reilly’s involvement in essentially making Dr. George Tiller a target. Olbermann finishes the segment stating that he will no longer focus so much of his time and effort on O’Reilly. He also calls for Fox News to be “quarantined,” meaning to not support any business that supports or airs Fox News, something that FoxNewsBoycott.com has been suggesting since the site’s launch.

Church Shooter Read O’Reilly, Hannity & Savage

Thankfully, the attack on a Knoxville church by Jim David Adkisson is a rare case, but it does provide an example of the mentality of extremist fans of Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage. Adkisson, apparently, left a four page letter that outlines his frustration and hatred of so-called liberals “who are ruining the country.”

Inside the shooter’s house, police officers found “Liberalism is a Mental Disease” by Michael Savage, “Let Freedom Ring” by Sean Hannity, and “The O’Reilly Factor,” by Bill O’Reilly.

Bill O’Reilly Ad – Fixed That For You…

Bill O’Reilly Defends Racial Profiling in NYC

Last week, Bill O’Reilly mistakenly took on the ACLU for objecting to the use of racial profiling by the NYPD. It was actually the Center for Constitutional Rights that filed a class action law suit against the police department, but that’s not the real issue here…

O’Reilly cites a RAND study that, he says, concludes that 69% of New York’s violent crime victims describe the assaliant as black and 5% described the assaliant as white, which justifies his racial bias. What the study actually found is that, in 2007, cops arrested only 5.8% of the 472,096 people they stopped, 80% of whom were black or Latino.

Bill-O argues that the police are targeting people who are up to no good, or are acting suspicious. That would mean that over 80% of those stopped were in the wrong place at the wrong time, or they’re up to no good. But, 90% of the time the police is wrong, according to O’Reilly’s guest, Fox News Analyst Dr. Marc Lemont Hill.

Civil liberties be damned, Bill O’Reilly sums up his thoughts with more fear mongering diatribe: “If you’re going . . . you and the ACLU and all of your other left-wing friends are going to object to all of the measures that keep Americans safe . . . you’re going to have more dead people.”

Gawker Still Trying to Ambush Jesse Watters

Jesse Watters, the producer for The O’Reilly Factor who likes to ambush and harass unsuspecting people and then calls it journalism, is still being hunted by Gawker.com.

Apparently Gawker bloggers learned of Watters’ new $545,000 home, located in a cul-de-sac in Huntington, NY, and have been talking to his neighbors (and the cops called on them). A cul-de-sac has one way in and one way out, so it’s just a matter of time. Hopefully the bloggers more luck ambushing Jesse Watters this time around….

Professor Who Spoke Out Against Bill O’Reilly Denied Tenure

Syracuse University professor Boyce Watkins has taken on Bill O’Reilly’s racist comments and has earned himself the resentment of The O’Reilly Factor host. Unfortunately, Syracuse University has taken  Watkins’ disputes with O’Reilly in a negative light and the professor of Finance has lost his tenure.

You may recall, in 2007, the comments O’Reilly made after visiting a black-owned restaurant in Harlem:

O’Reilly spoke at length about how he “couldn’t get over” how the restaurant — black-owned, and primarily with black customers — was full of “respectful” people. He talked about how it was just like “going to an Italian restaurant” and how there wasn’t “any kind of craziness” or anyone “screaming, ‘M-Fer, I want more iced tea.’ “

At one point, O’Reilly sent a producer to Syracuse University to track down Chancellor Nancy Cantor and demand an apology for Watkins’ disagreeing with O’Reilly, who called him, “one of the worst race baiters in the country.” Cantor didn’t apologize, stating that Watkins was speaking as an individual, but that incited O’Reilly to claim that Watkins was hiding behind the university and that Syracuse University does not have academic standards.

For whatever reason the university did seem to single Boyce Watkins out, whereas they did not make similar announcement for other professors speaking as individuals at other venues. This is why, Watkins claims, his tenure request was treated unfairly. Whether or not it’s true, it does bring back to light O’Reilly’s apparent racism and some backstory of those events.

Book: Bill O’Reilly Versus the Truth

The central thesis of Bill O’Reilly Versus The Truth is that Bill O’Reilly misleads the public by representing himself as a non-partisan, when in fact he is a right-wing political partisan who supports the Republican Party and does everything within his power to vilify Democrats and discredit the Democratic Party.pThe book analyses quotes, statistics, and arguments taken from O’Reilly’s television shows, his books, and his articles, and systematically details the inherent bias that is built into most of O’Reilly’s presentations. It covers a wide range of subjects and issues, ranging from domestic politics, to religion, to international affairs.pBill O’Reilly Versus The Truth is NOT a personal attack on Bill O’Reilly; it is a very substantive thesis on the journalistic work of Bill O’Reilly, and a comprehensive analysis of his methods and techniques. It is informative, as well as entertaining.

Bill O’Reilly Thinks Gay Marriage = Marrying a Turtle

Fox News analyst Margaret Hoover argued against Bill O’Reilly‘s claims that gay marriage will lead to interspecies marriage, but that doesn’t stop O’Reilly from making such insane claims. He’s suggested that legalized gay marriage will open the door for people to marry goats, ducks, dolphins and now turtles…

“[Y]ou would let everybody get married who want to get married. You want to marry a turtle, you can.”

O’Reilly also claimed, along with Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson, that gay marriage will lead to polygamous marriage, which Fox News personalies are calling “triads.” The whole basis of their argument is based on a slipery slope – if one thing happens, then another, etc. It’s a flawed illogical argument, at best.
