Glenn Beck Makes Unsubstantiated Claims About Keith Olbermann

It’s easy to find direct quotes of Bill O’Reilly’s violent rhetoric. It’s not so easy for Glenn Beck to make similar claims about Keith Olbermann or Frank Rich. Beck has been trying to refocus the negative attention from Fox News somewhere else and fails miserably.

BECK: Keith Olbermann has railed against recruiters. Keith Olbermann has railed against the baby killers that our U.S. soldiers are.

So far, nobody can provide evidence that neither Olbermann, nor Rich, have made offensive comments about U.S. soldiers, or recruiters, similar to those said by Bill O’Reilly about Dr. George Tiller.

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.

Joan Walsh of Salon.com Handles Bill O’Reilly

How do you handle a show’s host that repeatedly asks the same question, won’t let you answer, speaks over you, yells at you, calls you names, and then complains that you won’t answer questions? You do what Salon.com’s Joan Walsh does to Bill O’Reilly. You remain calm, provide answers in complete sentences and make O’Reilly look like the unhinged, abusive, blowhard that he is. Enjoy!

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.

Michelle Malkin Thinks Hate is OK, But Not Against Fox News

According to Michelle Malkin, Fox News should be free to include hate speech in its “reporting,” but liberal partisans should restrain themselves from pointing this out. She considers calling abortion doctors, like George Tiller, “murderers” and “baby killers” to be simply part of the “debate” in the media. Like her buddy, Fox News counterpart, Bill O’Reilly, she apparently believes that the real zealots are liberals against members of the media inciting violence. How about that…

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.
