  1. Enough with the ivory tower spin, professor.

    We’re dealing with facts here on the Factor.

  2. Indeed ;)

  3. “I will add, what with his references to “the folks” (i.e., all those “normal” viewers out there), his attempt to paint himself as an outsider to power (which because laughbale, given that he has the highest rated program on cable news), and his doggedly certain rhetoric.”

    Are you sure you aren’t talking about Bush??

  4. I very much agree with your take on O’Reilly. I wonder how much of it he truly believes or if he just knows how to keep his ratings up. O’Reilly’s and Pat Robertson’s hyperbole cater to the fringe and less educated in society, then the media jump on this nonsense and we have a self perpetuating cycle.

  5. […] and his sense of humor and mine tend not to connect. Very, very scary.

    -Steven Taylor doesn’t like Bill O’Reilly. Which makes me like Steven Taylor even more than I already did.

  6. Hey Steven, long time no type-

    I don’t disagree with your overall portrayal of O’Reilly. - But in this case wasn’t it just a metaphor?

    I dunno, maybe the hurricane has me more focused on the “more important things in life” but I’m left wondering why this is such a big deal to anyone.

    Egads- someone used hyperbole to make a political point. That almost never happens.

    But what do I know?… I didn’t think Gore making fund raising calls from the whitehouse was a big deal and I didn’t think Lott’s birthday party toast was a big deal either.
