O'Reilly Had a Low Class Obama Inauguration Show

O'Reilly talked about NBC doing some cheap shots on Bush, and he said he would report it tonight. Why talk about that on the Obama Inauguration show. Why not just wait until tonight to talk about it.

The biggest problem I had was the fact that we just elected the first black president in the history of America and O'Reilly does not have one black person on the whole show. The show was mostly white Republicans who work for FOX News. Hume, Kelly, Dobson, Waters, Jenkins, Hemmer, Geraldo, etc. all reporting from the Inauguration.

Only one Democrat got on the show, but he was white. Not one black person was on the whole show, no black Congressman, no black journalists, no black pastors, nothing. And the one Democrat was the former Clinton speech writer who was on with a Republican guest at the same time so he barely got a word in. And he was only allowed to talk about what it was like to write a speech for Bill Clinton.

During the Jill Dobson segment about the Hollywood celebs, O'Reilly once again (for the 3rd time this week) called them pinheads, but when Hollywood celebs went to the Bush Inauguration they were not called pinheads. In O'Reilly world they are only pinheads if they support a Democrat, which is bias and a double standard from O'Reilly.

That was a low class move by O'Reilly, he loaded the show with white Republicans on the day America makes history by swearing in the first black president. All the other news shows had multiple black guests and mostly Democrats, Congressman, Pastors, Journalists, etc. Olbermann had mostly Democrats and a black Journalist. Anderson Cooper had multiple black guests from Congressman to Pastors. Every show had black guests and mostly Democrats but the factor.

It shows how biased O'Reilly really is, he should have had mostly Democrats on to talk about the Obama Inauguration, and he should have had at least 2 blacks on, if not 3 or more, but he did not have any. The only person of color on the whole show was Geraldo, and he is latino.

I watched most of all the other news shows, and the factor was the only one I saw that did not have any black guests. Let alone black Democrats, as the other shows did.

4. Water is Wet?

It's exactly what I expected, I just thought I would post what O'Reilly did for the people who may not have seen it, and for any newbies and lurkers who may not know how much of a right-wing piece of shit O'Reilly actually is. We all know what he is, but sometimes we forget to inform the newbies and the lurkers who may not know him as well as we do.

2. FOX is the sanctuary for white bigots.
It was probably the only thing they wanted to watch yesterday, if they did watch anything. The network was just catering to its viewers, the 18-percenters, or whatever we should call them now.

3. I Think it's 25 Percent

I believe Republicans are about 25 percent of the country who vote.
