O'Reilly Factor Appearance

Unread postby BooKoo » Wed Sep 30, 2009 4:53 am

I completely agree with you about Fox and the criticism incurred from many people. I have sent the following email to Bill O'Reilly:

"Bernie Goldberg was right on the money about the criticism of Fox. What you don't seem to understand is that MOST people who watch news channels ASSUME that the person "reporting" is actually reporting the NEWS--NOT their opinions. I also agree, and have for a very long time, that Fox uses the motto, "fair and balanced", egregiously. I used to watch all of the Fox prime time shows until it became so politically biased that I now only watch you. In order to be "balanced", you MUST present BOTH SIDES of issues. When the biggest percentage of guests, including yours, are conservative, that just falls way short of balanced."

Bernie, you are one of the FEW guests on Fox who actually tell it like it is and I admired your persistence in your argument with O'Reilly last night. You didn't let him get away with defending the indefensible.

Why does it say under my user name, "A biased and arrogant fan"? What kind of site is this? I told the truth and complimented you and I would like to know who decides to post a description like that under a person's name who has never even posted before. I am very disappointed.

It is no reflection on yourself, just how many posts you've made on this site. It is only a reference to Bernie's first two books and will change if you post more.

Bernie, honestly your BOR segment is something I look forward to each week, but you "lost me" with your last appearance. :roll: Seriously I had no idea what you were talking about!

Love all your books Bernie, I've read them all and can't for your next one.
