O'Reilly: Air America getting too much publicity
O'Reilly: Air America Getting Too Much Publicity

For an operation with just six stations, the Democratic Party's liberal radio network has been getting a ton of coverage from its friends in the liberal media, says Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly.

"Never in the history of the American press has one tiny enterprise gotten so much free publicity," O'Reilly told his TV audience on Friday. "The reason, of course, is that the elites want liberal bomb throwers to embarrass and defame people with whom they disagree. It's like hiring hit men and women."

O'Reilly, of course, is one of those targets, along with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. But while the other two hosts have pretty much ignored the debut of "Air America," the Fox News host scorched the press for paying so much attention to the otherwise unspectacular development.

Noting that his own "Radio Factor" broadcast is heard nationwide on 405 stations, O'Reilly said, "Guess how many articles the New York Times has done on us? Zero."

4. O'Really's propagandizing show is not newsworth.
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 02:43 PM by DenverDem
That's why it's never been "news that fits" (only on a prevaricating propaganda site like newsmin).

6. Awww, poor O'Reilly.
Somebody get him a lollipop.

Maybe AirAmerica is news because it's been so long since we've had a liberal voice on the radio, and liars like O'Reilly are a dime a dozen?

You know what, Bill? I think you're scared. I think you know your castle is crumbling. How's it feel, Bill, when you can't tell the other side to shut up?

8. methinks he doth protest too much
Muwahahahahahahahah
Bill, you are history. No, a tiny little footnote in history mentioning you as NOT a Peabody recipient but a pompous gas bag with delusions of importance whose claim to near-fame was the ability to shout "Just shut up" over the sounds of people making sense and telling the truth.

10. We can't forget the "controversy" over air America
Only reported on Fox News and NY Daily News (Big surprise).

Basically saying that Air America is taking over minority radio stations because they do not have as much notoriety or protection.

Any truth to this Foxzi propaganda?

The GOP should have no problem with that: it's just capitalism in the marketplace, right?

18. Air America taking over small radio stations?
Like Faux News cares? More rightwing spin. What lame propaganda.

20. He's sick with jealousy. Have you ever met a person that you just loved..
annoy them - O'Reilly is that way to me. It's just so much fun to taunt him and watch him fall for it everytime. Of all that crowd, I think he is the biggest goof-ball.

26. Well most Right wing radio bullies are too chickenshit to make the rounds
Savage backed out of a chance to be on nightline to debate Franken but backed out. You will NEVER see Rush on a talk show after Letterman gave him a dose of red ass. O'Reilly has been only on Fox news and radio mostly after Franken gave him a beatdown.
Why?
Cause they know they cant control there environment. No Screeners, No mute button and probably one pissed off, smart Dem or lib Like Franken or Rhodes that will be ready and waiting to debate them.
So you will only see them on Right wing friendly shows like all of Fox, Hardball, Scarborough, ect.
They could promote more but then they would leave themselves open to real debate and thats something that they are scared shitless to do.
Yellow Bellied bullys all of them
O'Reilly is full of it.
