send Bill O'Reilly to Darfur!!!

[q]Kristof of 'NYT' Starts Pledge Drive to Back Bill O'Reilly Trip

By E&P Staff

Published: February 06, 2006 10:55 PM ET

NEW YORK New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof resumed his exchange with TV/radio talkster Bill O'Reilly on Tuesday, asking readers to contribute to a fund to send O'Reilly to Darfur.

Kristof said he would ante up the first $1000.

The "feud" began last December when O'Reilly denounced Kristof as a "left-wing ideologue." Kristof replied by challenging O'Reilly to show truly "traditional values" by joining him on a visit to Darfur to assess the death and devastation there, thereby "using your talents for an important cause."

Kristof in his Tuesday column revealed that a few days ago he got this answer: "I do three hours of daily news analysis on TV and radio. There's no way I can go to Africa."

But Kristof replied that with a satellite phone, "you can do your show from anywhere."

Asking readers for help, Kristof asked that they send emails to sponsorbill@gmail.com -- and tell him how much they are willing to pay toward O'Reilly's expenses in Darfur.

"Offers will be anonymous, except maybe to the N.S.A.," Kristof observes. "Sure, this is a desperate measure. But with several hundred thousand people already murdered in Darfur and two million homeless and living in shantytowns, the best hope for those still alive is a strong dose of American outrage....

"Mr. O'Reilly has a big audience and a knack for stirring outrage. Lately, he (quite properly) galvanized an outcry over a ridiculously light sentence for a sexual predator in Vermont. The upshot was that the sentence was increased. Good for him.

"So imagine the furor Mr. O'Reilly could stir up if he publicized the hundreds of thousands of rapes, murders and mutilations in Darfur. He could save lives on a grand scale.

"Join the pledge drive!"

I guess the world would fall apart without his three hours of TV/radio if he went to Africa. To be fair though plenty of other people, including plenty of Democrats/liberals/whatever, can "talk the talk but not walk the walk" and don't use their talents for an important cause.

I guess O'Reilly just gets singled out because of his big mouth, big ego, etc. I think it's rather fascinating that so many men are in feuds with him. Ah the male ego

Since his show is only 3 hours a day, he has plenty of time too

Btw, where IS the American outrage?

Yes, for so far i know Dafur is a part of sudan,...and sudan has oil.And big oil contracts with China and India. That is why hard economical sanctions never will be in place by the United nations

Their names are in the paper because of their jobs.

Now, they want to become the story, instead of reporting the story.

Another controversy to get people talking about them, and buying newspapers and magazines as well.

I think the people in Darfur have enough problems as it is.
