Monica Crowley’s Bush/Terrorism Falsehood

Fox News contributor Monica Crowley was a guest on The O’Reilly Factor, during which she stated, “[a]fter 9-11, President Bush and Vice President Cheney had a 100 percent perfect track record in keeping the homeland safe from an Islamic terrorist attack.”

The problem with that statement can be explained by the following incidents that took place after the events on 9/11.

2002 attack against El Al ticket counter at LAX. In July 2002, Hesham Mohamed Hadayet opened fire at an El Al Airlines ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport, killing two people and wounding four others before being shot dead. A 2004 Justice Department report stated that Hadayet’s case had been “officially designated as an act of international terrorism.”

2006 UNC SUV attack. In March 2006, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill graduate Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar drove an SUV into an area of campus, striking nine pedestrians. According to reports, Taheri-azar said he acted because he wanted to “avenge the deaths or murders of Muslims around the world.” Taheri-azar also reportedly stated in a letter: “I was aiming to follow in the footsteps of one of my role models, Mohammad Atta, one of the 9/11/01 hijackers, who obtained a doctorate degree.”

2001 shoe bomber attempted attack. In June 2008, then-Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff described Reid’s December 2001 attempt “to blow up a trans-Atlantic plane with a shoe bomb” as an attempt to “carry out terrorist operations for Al-Qaeda.”

Of course, Crowley failed to mention the number of terrorist-related deaths in the U.S. that occurred in each President’s first year in office – Bush: 3000+/- on 9/11, Obama: 14 (1 in Little Rock, 13 at Fort Hood).

Jesse Watters, the O’Reilly Factor Ambusher, Ambushed

ThinkProgress.org was able to catch up with Jesse Watters and ask him a few questions before he was able to hop in an elevator. He tried to avoid the questions, having had them asked numerous times, and was caught in a few lies. First he stated that he didn’t know who ThinkProgress.org was. Then he stated that he sat down with Amanda Terkel. And as he got in the elevator, he stated that he didn’t refuse to comment for the NY Times.

Of course Watters knows about ThinkProgress – he said he called them, though nobody at ThinkProgress agrees, and he followed Amanda Terkel for hours and then she stopped on the street to talk to him. She never “sat down” with him. As for the NY Times claim, reporter Brian Stelter stated, “I called Mr. Watters repeatedly at his office #, and he referred my calls to Fox’s PR people. He refused to comment.”

Jesse Watters Finally Ambushed… Sorta

John Cook from Gawker.com finally met up with Jesse Watters, a producer for The O’Reilly Factor,  outside of his Huntington, NY house on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, they didn’t get an interview as they avoided confrontation and allowed Watters to leave, without incident, or a word spoken.

After two months of tracking and waiting for such an opportunity, the result is a disappointment, but the nonconfrontational nature of the “ambush” goes further in showing how much of a coward Watters is. If he can dish it out, he should be able to take it. But alas, he wasn’t even asked to take it. He was given courtesy, but he had none to give in return.

Are any of us really surprised?

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.

Bill O’Reilly Ad – Fixed That For You…

The following ad was on the Fox News web site… I didn’t feel it portrayed Bill O’Reilly accurately enough. I mean, we want them to be “fair and balanced,” so I fixed it for him…

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….

The O’Reilly Factor Poll of Irony

I think, once you take a look at the following, you’ll know exactly how to vote…

The O’Reilly Factor wants to know what you think the WORST Entertainment TV show series of all time is. No news shows or specific episodes should be given as answers. The winning show may be featured in a new “American TV Icons” segment!

Pro Tip: copy = ctrl+c, paste = ctrl+v

O’Reilly Producer Caught Lying

If you’re like me, you’re following Gawker.com and waiting to see if they ever catch up with The O’Reilly Factor producer, Jesse Watters, much less get to ask him the questions they’ve outlined on their site. Their questions cover the following topics.

On Twitter, Watters stated that he doesn’t consider what he does ambushing, but the evidence shows an entirely different story. These facts are from the horses ass mouth so-to-speak.

Exhibit 1) A blog post by Watters titled “Producer’s Notebook: Ambushed.”

Exhibit 2) O’Reilly interview with Watters – O’Reilly: “Back of the Book” segment tonight, ambush journalism… With us now “Factor” producer Jesse Watters, one of our field guides.

The questions also cover several instances where Watters position is, basically, they need to ambush because people refuse to come on the show. However, it’s hard for someone to accept an invitation when one isn’t offered.

Ambushing the Ambusher

In complete absence of journalistic integrity, The O’Reilly Factor’s producer Jesse Watters ambushes and harasses people who are critical of the show or O’Reilly’s agenda. Gawker.com wants to see how he likes it…

Apparently Watters can dish out the ambushing, but can’t take it. He has repeatedly refused interviews, so Gawker.com has resorted to using the same tactics against him. Hopefully they’ll have some video soon, but they’re still waiting outside of his last known address.

Update: Jesse Watters is now taunting the Gawker stalkers on Twitter (@jessewatters)

Shocking: O’Reilly Producer is a Hypocrite

If you recall, Jesse Watters is a producer of The O’Reilly Factor who was recently involved in the harassment of ThinkProgress writer Amanada Terkel. The hypocritical producer, whose apparent job includes stalking people and ambushing them to further O’Reilly’s agenda. Over 80% of the past dozen targets have been considered liberal or critical of Republicans.

Well, one could call this irony, but it’s really not unexpected… The New York Times tried, repeatedly, to interview Jesse Watters. Watters repeatedly denied. You see, that’s not irony. It’s simply hypocrisy.
