So this is how Fox presents “news”?

Interesting transcript of a Bill O’Reilly Fox moment:

GLICK: On September 14, do you want to know what I’m doing?

O’REILLY: Shut up! Shut up!

GLICK: Oh, please don’t tell me to shut up.

O’REILLY: As respect — as respect — in respect for your father, who was a Port Authority worker, a fine American, who got killed unnecessarily by barbarians…

GLICK: By radical extremists who were trained by this government…

O’REILLY: Out of respect for him…

GLICK: … not the people of America.

O’REILLY: … I’m not going to…

GLICK: … The people of the ruling class, the small minority.

O’REILLY: Cut his mic. I’m not going to dress you down anymore, out of respect for your father.

The start of the “interview” was even more interesting. Follow the link to read the whole transcript.

  1. O’Reilly is a child that never had a chance to breakthrough egocentrism….8 yo in his mind… no real logic, only dogma …

  2. It’s called commentary. Commentary != news broadcasting. Bill O’Reilly’s show *IS* a commentary show — it is the news that Bill O’Reilly wants to talk about, and the interviews that Bill O’Reilly wants to have on the show. There are many other shows like this one, if you don’t like his show, then find a political commentator that you do like. This is not strictly news, and to make your own “commentary” on FoxNews as biased for it is ridiculous. But since it is your venue, just like Bill O’Reilly on his show, you are more then allowed to.

  3. Thanks JenJen, I understand it is supposed to be commentary, but in my mind its journalism (or at least, its supposed to be). So when O’Reilly goes berserk on his guest – that is a small scandal in itself.

    But I guess you have gotten used to that kind of journalism/commentary in the US.

  4. What a compleat jerk o’reily is! I guess he’s aloud to be an ass on his own show, but It’s pretty clear he’s nothing more than a rage filled bully. Hope he likes hell!
