I suppose it’s time for my annual post about how much Bill O’Reilly sucks. Usually I stay away from this because he does such a great job of making a fool of himself on his own, and if you go anywhere near his no spin zone, your head is going to start spinning.
I should also say that I don’t really care about his ongoing feud with Keith Olbermann, except insofar as it seems to bring out the worst in Bill O’Reilly. Here’s a prime example:
A caller to Bill O’Reilly’s radio show yesterday got dumped from the air and then threatened on air. The caller actually said, “Keith Olbermann has the best show in the 8 o’clock hour.” O’Reilly dumped him after the word “Olbermann” and then said:
Mike is a gone guy. We have your phone numbers, by the way, so if you’re listening, Mike, we have your phone number, and we’re going to turn it over to FOX Security, and you’ll be getting a little visit. . . . When you call us, ladies and gentlemen, just so you know, we do have your phone number, and if you say anything untoward, obscene, or anything like that, FOX Security then will contact the local authorities, and you will be held accountable. . . . Believe it. — Bill O’Reilly (MP3)
Comments at the caller’s Web site indicate that FOX Security did indeed contact at least one caller to the show. “Hi, this is Tony (Burdy)?, head of security for Fox News. I was wondering if you could give me a call at 212-301-3299. thanks a lot.”
