A Daily Show Introduction to Bill O'Reilly (Includes News Reports & Analysis!)

Sorry if big Bill O'Reilly fans are offended by this, but even taking out the really bad stuff I still end up with a ton of evidence proving that Bill O'Reilly is a hypocrite at best...

Using kids to do his dirty work i.e. uses an emotional tactic ("humble correspondent"!)...


His shameless marketing doesn't quite end there though...

Bill O'Reilly supports America's troops by sending them what they need most on the battlefield: his book...

Article about Bill O'Reilly's inaccuracies: Ford's Theatre bookstore bans Bill O'Reilly's book on Lincoln assassination over 'inaccuracies'

Extract: 'SPIN' CYCLE: SOME INACCURACIES IN KILLING LINCOLN O'Reilly's book claims that Civil War Generals Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant 'will never meet again' after the 'surrender meeting' at the Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865 - but they did meet again - the very next day. In Chapter 19, the book asserts that Ford's Theatre 'burned to the ground in 1863.' While it was consumed by fire, the structure was still standing. There are also multiple references to Lincoln being in the Oval Office, a room in the White House that wasn't built until 1909, 44 years after Lincoln's death. The book says the formal name of Ford's Theatre is 'Ford's Opera House,' when its actual formal name became 'Ford’s New Theatre' when it was rebuilt following an 1862 fire. The play Our American Cousin, which was watched by Lincoln at the time of his assassination was performed seven times at Ford's Theatre prior to that night, not eight as O'Reilly's book claims.

Religious Hypocrisy

On one side...

Islam... Memo: Containing Radical Islam: Now all over the world, extreme Muslims believe they're allowed to kill people with whom they disagree. They even kill each other. Thousands of people are dying and the world's response is largely silence. Remember, the Sudanese government is allowing killers to slaughter hundreds of thousands of civilians in Darfur. As China blocks action in the U.N., the world just stands by and watches. There is no question that Muslim killers are a threat to the entire world. Iran is funding and arming Hezbollah, which may start a war in Lebanon any time. Pakistan is allowing the Taliban sanctuary so it can kill Afghans and Americans at will. And Al Qaeda is actively seeking ways to kill just about everybody. With Pakistan already having nukes and Iran on the way to getting them, you'd have to be a complete moron not to understand the danger here.

On the other side...

Christianity... To Peter King: O'REILLY: It is wrong. I agree. I've known you for a long time. You're not a racist. And Mr. Rush and Miss Dukes are cheap for playing that race card against you. But the timing of what you said — what you said was harsh. It was harsh. And you know, the man just died. He has people who love him. In hindsight, might you have waited a week? Read more.

Who is Peter King?

Article 1 on Peter King: But according to experts in counterterrorism law, if the tough-on-terror policies King trumpets today had taken effect a few decades earlier, King himself might have been subject to prosecution. Over parts of three decades, from his days as an aspiring politician in Long Island through his early years in Congress, King was one of the nation's most outspoken supporters of the Irish Republican Army and a prolific fundraiser for the Irish Northern Aid Committee (NorAid), allegedly the IRA's American fundraising arm. The IRA waged a paramilitary campaign against the British presence in Northern Ireland for decades before peace accords were signed in 1998. Part of that effort included bombings and shootings that resulted in civilian deaths in England and Northern Ireland. During the period of King's involvement, the US government accused both NorAid and the IRA of links to terrorism.

Article 2 on Peter King: "The British government is a murder machine," King said. He described the IRA, which mastered the car bomb as an instrument of urban terror, as a "legitimate force." And he compared Gerry Adams, the leader of Sinn Fein, the IRA's political wing, to George Washington.

In fact, all of Fox News seems to join in on the slander...

The Fox News rapid-response team distinguishes violence in the name of a religion from the practitioners of that religion -- as long as it's Christianity...

It gets better...

O'Reilly declares... "Andre is not Christian as you don't kill in that faith"

Yet... from Andre: "Considering the fact that my martyrdom operation draws ever closer I decided to bring one to enjoy with my extended family at our annual Christmas party in December."

Even historically... "Augustine Gave the policy of persecution his personal approval, supplied theological justification, concern heresy and schism rather that paganism. We ought to be careful about those converted through the sword, those who accepted Christianity for political or social advantage. Scarcely ever is Jesus thought for His own sake."

[Note: Accusing someone of heresy means death in the old world, if believed. Augustine condemned a whole sect, i.e. he authorized genocide]

On Christmas...
Tuesday December 13, 2005 Bill O'Reilly campaigns against the secularization of Christmas by putting those who wish 'Happy Holidays' on the naughty list....

Article: December 4, 2005: This Season's War Cry: Commercialize Christmas, or Else The American Family Association is leading a boycott of Target for not using the words "Merry Christmas" in its advertising. (Target denies it has an anti-Merry-Christmas policy.) The Catholic League boycotted Wal-Mart in part over the way its Web site treated searches for "Christmas."

Bill O'Reilly, the Fox anchor who last year started a "Christmas Under Siege" campaign, has a chart on his Web site of stores that use the phrase "Happy Holidays," along with a poll that asks, "Will you shop at stores that do not say 'Merry Christmas'?"
