Two more O’Reilly misstatements from last night

December 6, 2014 by


A final note about last night’s “O’Reilly Factor.”  After lamenting the destruction in Ferguson, Missouri, he referred disparagingly to the New York protesters of Eric Garner’s death: “We have protesters right this second, running around New York (smiling). I was out there last night watching.

Nightly News back in NY but it and Hannity disappoint

November 26, 2014 by


Last night we expressed the view that anchoring NBC Nightly News from Ferguson, Missouri, the scene of violence the night before, was a mistake. We are happy that the broadcast was based back

Live coverage of violence is ill-advised

November 25, 2014 by

Pres. Bush stays classy in spite of Hannity

November 17, 2014 by


The former President held his ground and refused to criticize Pres. Obama on Hannity’s Fox News program last night.

Former CIA agent’s insulting comments

August 1, 2014 by


The agent,  Michael Scheuer, commented on a tape of former President Bill Clinton in which he says the day before 9/11 that he could have executed Osama bin Laden but didn’t because hundreds of women and children would also have died.

Conservative criticized on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’

July 31, 2014 by


Bill O’Reilly lost hope of a meaningful discussion during a segment of his program on Fox News tonight.  But his frustration wasn’t directed at a liberal guest, as is more common on the show,  but rather at conservative author and blogger,  Kate Obenshain.
