That's certainly right, and pretty frightening. If that should be an indicator, I've read just yesterday that the Daily Show generates more than a million viewers each evening, and then there was this figure of 8.5 million listeners to this Savage guy.
And well, only a few listen to or watch these shows to hear the other side.

Bush's and also McCain's proposed policies, like the ones on contraception, are so driven by conservative religious ideologies that it's definitely, from my perspective anyways, some worrying development that is going on.

What can I do, I'm a European? Since Kerry we know that Europeans are an elitist bunch you rather not associate yourself with.

But I will stand by my convictions.

Reminds me of a column by Maureen Dowd about Bush's last trip to France, where she started pointing out that the term "elitist" in France still has rather a positive connotation.

O'REILLY ROCKS!!!
Why exactly, is George W. Bush your hero?

He has taken my country, America into a war that shouldn't have happened! And how many of us have paid the price, not to mention the tens of thousands of Iraq's who have died.

His policies with Palestine and the entire Middle East is terrible. He doesn't even want to listen to the other side.

Our news is slanted. I am so sick of hearing the words Muslim and terrorist in the same sentence. Do you think that for one minute, that 37 million Irish Americans would have tolerated "Irish + American = British hater and IRA extremist." Nope, not for a New York second!

but someone like o'rielly needs this kind of attention in order to get ratings, and thus stay in business.

if he's so clueless... i guess i just don't think people realise how much they're actually supporting him and others like him by watching him just to get angry.

sounds stupid to me, really.

This is funny. I wonder if they told those kids to say that or if they figured it out themselves. They probably figured it out-Bill is not smarter than a fifth grader.

And of course there's this, I never get tired of this

Ok, that's weird. It says the video is no longer available yet I could see it, sort of.

Wow, heated interview there! That was the first and last Bill O'Reily interview I am going to watch. It almost reminded me of WWF wrestling. Is that really what news is like these day!?! I am glad I tune out that crap.

I was watching Fox news and they were discussing that interview and The View and how they called Sarah Palin 'dumb'. They actually said that The View was dangerous and what Bill said was needed.
Last time I checked The View was an entertainment show and Bill was a journalist/reporter! That network is fucked!

News? No.

Blowhards who have their own "news" (read: opinion shows) shows? Yes.

Even though Barney was blowing smoke (as usual).... O'Reilly should have treated a sitting congressman with a little more respect.
