Bill O'Reilly shouldn't worry much about folks telling lies about him. He should be much more concerned with people telling the truth about him. Fred Oinka










Web Traffic to Bill OReilly.com Is Down



An odd thing seems to have happened to mighty right-wing talking head media juggernaut. They are still talking, but fewer people seem to be listening -- at least on the Internet.

Alexa.com -- http://alexa.com -- which is owned and operated by Amazon.com, tracks online usage for all Web sites, large and small. At Alexa.com, you can check a site's activity up to the minute, or follow its trail back for many years.
At U.S. Politics Today, we thought it might be interesting to see how the right-wing media machine was doing. Not well, it turns out.

The audience chart reversal seems to be common across the entire right-wing side of the Internet viewing board. Billoreilly.com -- http://billoreilly.com -- has dropped 40 percent in the past three months.

    I figured we should probably start up a reference list of Bill O'Reilly "Greatest Hits." Feel free to add to this list, there's plenty of stuff out there. --Skinner

    I can't believe nobody has added anything to this list yet. This thread has been viewed 250 times, but *nobody* could think of a single thing to add to it? I would think this topic would be like shooting fish in a barrel for DU. --Skinner

    Ok - Guilty I was here and about to leave when I read your last message - I added the smokinggun article. --stop the bleeding




    "V for Vendetta" reviews - references to O'Reilly

    If there's any question about the film's political targets, Vendetta opens with a ridiculously racist and homophobic screed by Prothero, the Bill O'Reilly-like "Voice of London" who speaks on what appears to be the country's only television channel. "The former United States is the world's biggest leper colony," he spits. "And it wasn't because of the immigrants, the Muslims or the homosexuals, or the war that they started. No," he says. "It's because they're Godless!"... - The Tyee

    The Voice of London character is a brutish lout, comparable to conservative bully Bill OReilly, and the government, like the Fox-TV network, skews, screens, and even creates the news stories that litter the airwaves. Vs terrorist attacks are spun positively for damage control, and the stories create a culture of fear (even specifically mentioning the Avian flu) that is supposed to keep the citizens docile and scared, lest they ask too many questions. - Scene Stealers

    The setting is the near future, in a totalitarian Great Britain, and V has enemies of many stripes, including assorted government flunkies, Bill O'Reilly-style TV broadcasters, slimy men of the cloth and doctors guilty of performing unethical tests on internment-camp prisoners. - Salon

    The station has its own Bill O'Reilly figure in the blowhard Prothero (Roger Allam). And the chancellor has his own Dick Cheney in Creedy (Tim Pigott-Smith), who aims his buckshot at Deitrich (Stephen Fry), a closet gay who mocks the chancellor in a TV comedy skit. - Rolling Stone

    Prothero is an exaggeratedly animated Bill O'Reilly type (though much more extreme) who ends his nightly broadcasts with the sign off, "England prevails!" - Intergalactic Medicine Show

    Other forms of social control include a snarling Bill O'Reilly type known as the Voice of London. Village Voice

    This film will be offensive to some as it takes shots at the Iraq War and at conservative television personalities types such as Bill OReilly. KATU 2 Portland

    Citizens are covered in hoods and subjected to torture (Abu Ghraib, anyone?), and if that doesn't sound overheated enough, there's a priest with a taste for young flesh, a popular bushy-browed TV demagogue who's like Bill O'Reilly crossed with Nixon people|Entertainment Weekly

    Propaganda is dispensed via television, largely through the government network's shill who looks like Christopher Hitchens and brays like Bill O'Reilly. New City Chicago

    After a brief prologue about 17th-century Gunpowder Plot conspirator Guy Fawkes, we meet Evey (Natalie Portman) the character also narrates who works at the government TV network, where commentator Lewis Prothero (Roger Allam) seemingly channeling Bill OReilly covers up government misdeeds and stirs fear over Sutlers strawman threat du jour. LA City Beat

    V for Vendetta has its own cast of resident demagogues--most of them homophobic, Muslim-fearing, Bible-beating conservative caricatures. There is England's new overlord, Chancellor Arthur Sutler (John Hurt), who looks a little like a decrepit hybrid of Saddam Hussein and Hitler, backed up by a Bill O'Reilly-style talk show tyrant (Roger Allam) and a scheming secret police chief (Tim Pigott-Smith). Such monstrosities channel the worst creations of Animal Farm, although the lesson here is more that after a certain point, all hated governments start to look alike. - Johns Hopkins Newsletter

    A Bill O'Reilly-esque evil cable talk show host/wicked pharmaceutical billionaire/heinous military officer combo rolled into one character. - Debbie Schlussel (r/w b*tch)

    Contrle de linformation, surveillance constante des citoyens au nom de leur scurit, tte dirigeante lie aux institutions dextrme droite, tout y est. Incluant un animateur vedette, commentateur de lactualit qui est un amalgame de Rush Limbaugh et Bill OReilly. - En Primeur
