Stalking Points Memo: Kos & Effect


 
Bill O’Reilly: “Many of the Democrats running for president will speak at the DailyKos convention next week. That is a major mistake.”

So says O’Reilly, the renowned Democratic analyst. Listen as he generously contributes his learned advice to the party he dismisses as radical loons.

Is Bill O’Reilly Lying About JetBlue?

In yesterday’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly harangued David Barger, the CEO of JetBlue, for being a sponsor of the YearlyKos convention. He had his producer stalk Barger and ask questions that implied that the DailyKos website was a hate-filled enterprise. O’Reilly even compared it to the KKK and the Nazis.

In today’s TPM, O’Reilly announced that Barger sent him a response to his ambush interview that said that the airline’s only connection to YearlyKos was that it provided 10 flight vouchers. He went on to say that JetBlue has requested to be removed as a sponsor.

If true, that would be a cowardly act on the part of JetBlue. Capitulating to bullies like O’Reilly is never a good idea. Not only does it feed their egos, but it suggests agreement with allegations.

Needless to say, O’Reilly’s allegations were absurd. At best they represented a few nutcases that do not speak for the web site, its operators, or its community. On the other hand, O’Reilly himself has said innumerable hateful things like the one at the left. Indiana University published a study that found that:

“O’Reilly called a person or a group a derogatory name once every 6.8 seconds, on average, or nearly nine times every minute during the editorials that open his program each night.”

I documented O’Reilly’s unique abuse of language in an interactive portrait:
Bill O’Reilly: Propaganda Pimp.

However, what really makes this interesting is that Markos of the DailyKos denies that JetBlue has pulled their sponsorship. This, of course, would mean that O’Reilly is lying.

Wow. Do ya think?

Update: It appears that JetBlue did in fact bail, but as far as I’m concerned, nothing has changed because, however this settles, these enduring facts remain:

JetBlue are still cowards; O’Reilly is still a liar and he misrepresented DailyKos with his cherry-picked references and comparisons to the KKK and Nazis; O’Reilly is still the biggest hate-monger on television (see Propaganda Pimp above).

Stalking Points Memo – Bush Haters

Bush Haters

In this Memo, Bill tackles a subject of which he is exceedingly knowledgable: Hurting America. The only problem is that, as usual, he gets all the facts wrong and arrives at the wrong conclusions. At least he’s consistent.

Stalking Points Memo – Attack Of The Machines

Attack of the Machines

Bill O’Reilly, futurist exrtaordinaire, explains to all us simpletons why America’s leadership is behind the times. In doing so, he reveals that the real enemy facing the world today is not Al Qaeda, but the Borg Empire. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Stalking Points Memo – Terror Times

Terror Times

President Bush takes on the New York Times, and O’Reilly’s got his back. In fact, Billy goes after the whole of the committed left media. He says he doesn’t want to prosecute them, but he does a pretty good job of persecuting them.

Warmongers At Home

Gather round as Bill explains the geo-political complexities of the conflict in the Middle-East. By the time this lesson is over, you too will be an expert at building strawmen and posing questions that are deftly left unanswered.

Stalking Points Memo – Marry Amending

Marry Amending

In Bill’s world, freedom is a core American value that can only be exercised by majority rule. In his folksy idiom, the folks have the right to decide for themselves which folks have the right to decide for themselves.

Stalking Points Memo – Defending Atrocity

Defending Atrocity

Bill O’Reilly chooses the aftermath of the massacre at Haditha as an opportune time to praise Bush and Rumsfeld on their management of the war. In fact, he ridicules the notion of accountability and threatens those who are critical of military crimes. In other words, Billness as usual.

Stalking Points Memo – Pop Politics

Pop Politics

The Dixie Chicks arouse O’Reilly’s ire about the stupid, lazy, good-for-nothin “young’uns” in America. He’s apparently upset because they are so stupid that they would rather listen to the Dixie Chicks than to his pontificatious puke.

Stalking Points Memo – Threats From Mexico

Threats From Mexico

Mexico shocked Bill O’Reilly by making the outrageous request that it’s citizens not be subjected to rights abuses in the U. S. O’Reilly is now throwing his weight around with threats of boycotting Mexico. Are you getting hungry for some Freedom Tamales?

These Stalking Points Are Killing Me

My Stalking Points Memos have achieved some measure of popularity. Unfortunately, that has increased my bandwidth usage to the point where I was knocked offline.

I have increased my bandwidth capacity temporarily to get back online, but it ain’t cheap. So I will be exploring alternatives including hosting the video elsewhere. If anyone has any suggestions or offers, please email me at the link at the bottom of the page.

Of course, you can always help to support News Corpse by purchasing products at Crass Commerce. I have note cards, magnets, magnet cards, coasters, and the notorious George W. Bush Voodoo Doll. I should have t-shirts and other apparrel within a couple of months. Feel free to browse the site but allow me to suggest to this audience, the Political gallery.

Thanks for your patience and your support.

Stalking Points Memo – Privacy

Privacy

The National Security Agency is collecting data on the phone calls of every American as part of their “Terrorist Surveillience Program”. Apparently, we are all suspects. But Bill O’Reilly doesn’t care.

The Stalking Points Memo – Culture War

Culture War

Believe it or not, the left-wing media in America hates Bill O’Reilly. It’s the Secular Media vs. the Traditional Media (traditional?). Well, he’s not going to sit still for that anymore. He’s taking names. He’s making a list and checking it…..well, he’s making a list.

The Stalking Points Memo – Tony Snow

The Snow Job

Bill goes after the Far-Left Bomb Throwers who don’t seem to have anything nice to say about Fox shill, and new White House Press Secretary, Tony Snow. Watch as Bill lays into the disgraceful Howard Dean and His Minions (CD available now).
