Conservatives lack competence to stop the "Knockout Game" - 11/21/13

In the "Knockout Game", a victim is knocked unconscious in a surprise attack. Most or all of the perpetrators are blacks and usually working in a group; most or all of the victims have been non-blacks. Victims have included the political class such as Matt Yglesias and Rep Grace Meng. All these assaults are "hate crimes" and instances of racial intimidation and even if small in number they...

Conservative leaders who support Marco Rubio's amnesty (Hannity, O'Reilly, Norquist, Cardenas, Krauthammer...) - 01/22/13

... Grover Norquist, 1/14/13) [1] * Bill OReilly: "I think your program is a good one... that seems to be pretty fair... I like your program. I think it's fair.... we all want fairness and I think your program is a good one." [1] * Sean Hannity: "The most important thing, senator, in my mind, is what you're saying about that we have secured the border. Because otherwise we are going to be dealing...

Occupy Wall Street helps John Stossel make them look bad; what they should have done - 10/19/11

... Street ("OWS") protests on the Bill OReilly show. On the clip, he makes OWS look bad to the Fox audience, and most people outside the Fox audience who see the video probably won't have a high opinion of OWS either. (A raw clip is here). Instead of opposing Stossel effectively and showing people how he's wrong, the OWS protesters helped Stossel make OWS look bad. Which is presumably what they don...

Juan Williams fired by NPR, and his supporters won't be able to do anything about it - 10/21/10

... Muslims and terrorism on the Bill OReilly show; a transcript is at [1]. Williams' comments were too much for NPR (link) who'd previously warned him about his appearances on Fox News. Now, tasting blood, groups like Media Matters for America are going after NPR's Mara Liasson for her appearances on Fox [2]. Needless to say, rightwing bloggers and the like are up in arms about the firing. However...

Disingenuous Lou Dobbs now wants amnesty, guest workers, chain migration ("comprehensive immigration reform") - 01/08/10

Appearing on last night's Bill OReilly show on Fox News, Lou Dobbs made it clear that he does support amnesty, euphemistically called comprehensive immigration reform. Not only that, but he supports guest workers and chain migration. The only question he has is how many would be legalized and how many family members those legalized would be able to bring to the U.S. Since he referenced legalizing...

Sleazy Andrew Sullivan tries to implicate Bill O'Reilly in George Tiller shooting - 05/31/09

... as-yet-unknown killer's actions on Bill OReilly. Showing his intense interest in the truth, he links to and quotes Wikipedia [2] On Friday, November 3, 2006, Bill O'Reilly featured an exclusive segment on his show, The O'Reilly Factor, saying that he has an "inside source" with official clinic documentation indicating that George Tiller performs late-term abortions to alleviate "temporary...

"'New York Times' Spiked Obama Donor Story" (voicemail message from reporter?) - 04/01/09

[SEE UPDATE 2] A couple days ago, a story claiming that the New York Times spiked an anti-Obama story involving ACORN appeared: link On tonight's Bill O'Reilly show, he played a voice mail from the reporter involved - Stephanie Strom - in which she apologized to her source for not being able to follow up on some of the allegations the source was making. Paraphrasing, she said it wasn't her...

Media Matters for America on immigration "myths" ("Fear and Loathing in Prime Time") - 05/21/08

Media Matters for America offers a "report" called "Fear and Loathing in Prime Time/Immigration Myths and Cable News" (mediamattersaction.org/reports/fearandloathing/online_version). It attempts to address some of the "myths" supposedly promulgated by Lou Dobbs, Bill O'Reilly, and Glenn Beck. Not only that, but members of Congress are involved in helping them push their support for illegal...

The "anti-immigration movement" charted! (Bill O'Reilly, Lou Dobbs, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, VDare...) - 05/09/07

Solana Larsen (whose name rings a bell for some unknown reason) is the president of "PuertoDansk" and a contributor to opendemocracy.net and other sites. At the site of the North American Congress on Latin America, she offers "The Anti-Immigration Movement: From Shovels to Suits" [1]. If you read the recent Max Blumenthal interview, you already know what she's going to say and how wrong she is....

Soros-funded Media Matters now deleting comments? - 05/25/05

Media Matters - which admits it receives money from George Soros - appears to have deleted several comments from this thread about Bill O'Reilly discussing Harvard's plan to spend $50 million to promote "faculty diversity." O'Reilly said: "Any woman who signs on to work at Harvard gets 100 pair of shoes ... because all women want shoes." I left a sarcastic comment in the Manolo Shoe Blog style,...

Bill O'Reilly asks some semi-tough questions - 09/28/04

Bill O'Reilly interviewed President Bush, and the first part of the interview was broadcast on Monday. I didn't see it, but a transcript is here. I couldn't find an official transcript, but since that agrees with the quote printed in Bush: Militarizing Border Won't Stop Illegal Deluge (link). I'm going to assume it's largely accurate. O'Reilly brings up the recent Time Magazine cover story Who...

I will accept her apology on Bush's behalf - 04/09/03

From this (foxnews.com/story/0,2933,83365,00.html): O'REILLY: If you are wrong... and if the United States - and they will, this is going to happen - goes in, liberates Iraq [with] people in the street, American flags, hugging our soldiers... you gonna apologize to George W. Bush? GARAFALO: I would be so willing to say, "I'm sorry". I hope to God that I can be made a buffoon of, that people...
