5. SeemsLYING is his Trademark... O'Really... that is...
and the more outrageous... the more money he gets. Being smacked down by people with integrity doesn't phase him, he laughs all the way to the bank--seems there's a large audience that just loves to think like he does. No doubt it's the same people that makeup what Colbert termed the "Backwash" ("The last third is usually backwash...").

6. Keith was visibly shaking with anger at Mr. Flippant
O'Reilly is into one thing in this world: O'Reilly. Keith sees right through him. When he showed O'Reilly's flippant "explanation," all of about 10 seconds, I thought Keith was going to burst. O'Reilly fakes righteous indignation, except about criticism of himself. Then he is indeed indignant. But Keith has his priorities straight. My hatred and loathing of O'Reilly knows no bounds, and if the Right doesn't like it, tough, after what they have hurled at us. I don't back off any more, and neither does Keith, and he is a hero.

Now it's like 27%-31% or something-right?

So most people who get their fake-news from the boob-tube are indeed boobs- what is your point?

It doesn't matter how many more viewers O'Reilly has than Olbermann - it still doesn't make him correct. It just means that he pulls in a more gullible, less critical audience. O'Reilly's viewers are unquestioning sheep, and he works hard to keep them that way.

He WAS shaking a little from pure suppressed RAGE against O'Lielly.

This should be THE defining moment to quote when mentioning O'Lielly's... lies.

Thanks to Keith Olberman for seperating fact from fiction once again. I don't know where we would be without him. God knows there are very few people in the media who have the balls to report things like this.

Thanks to Fox News for not giving a damn about the American people, not giving a damn about the truth, not giving a damn about democracy, not giving a damn about morality, decency, ethics, or the memories of those who have served our country honorably. I still can't fathom why anyone with half a brain would waste their time watching that network.

How could any WWII vet still put any stock in O'Reilly's words? For that matter, how could any thinking American??

Keith, my admiration for you is surpassed only by my contempt for the rest of your media colleagues. They look the other way, or distort reality, or allow the Bush message to win out again and again. They have let us all down.

That was an incredible clip and K.O. was in top form. This was a very serious topic and K.O. made sure it was taken that seriously, even while holding true to his invitingly humorous form. What an absolute moron Bill, but then we knew that already. Keith runs circles around that piece of garbage.

Kudos to Keith. That was one of the most amazing tear downs I've ever seen. Wow. Just Wow.

O'Really should be castrated for destroying honorable WW2 heroes who were smeared by his ignorant mouthbreathing rants.

Besides, his idea that because atrocities have happened in the past means todays atrocities should be ignored, is classic neoknuckleheaded drivel. We should barrage Fox over their smearing of our military heroes. Make that asshole publicly apologise and then make him pay restitution to the families he ruined with his bully pulpit spew.

30. Wes Clark said this:
"I say that, first of all, you'll have to show me and prove to me that there were ever any American soldiers in Belgium and Normundy or in Iwo Jima who murdered civilians. Secondly, I think you're too low when you say 95% of the forces are performing effectively. I'd say 99.5%of the forces are performing effectively, maybe higher. But when you have incidents like this, and you have chains of command under enormous stress, that is an indicator that things aren't going right. You've got to be sensitive to those indicators. You've got to fix the problem, otherwise it's going to get worse."

(There is a time delay when the guests are not in the studio, and I notice that O'Reilly often takes advantage of this by talking over someone and does the usual trick of interupting and not letting them finish.)

39. What an idiot!
I think I know which incident O'Reilly is referring to, but it is NOT Malmedy. For him to do this a SECOND time demonstrates to me that O'Reilly goes beyond being a LIAR to an absolutely uninformed IDIOT GASBAG.

Edited on Fri Jun-02-06 04:03 AM by scoey1953
I mean, I thought people who worked for News organizations were supposed to base their
shows on facts and do their homework????...The fact that O'reilly blew this twice shows what a full blown idiot he really is. Bill never did his homework obviosly...but considering how
people like he and Ann Coulter get away with it all the time, reporting falsely about what went on
during the McCarthy era...shows that the right wing doesn't get it..and never will. Can we even call this Journalism anymore? They don't even qualify as faerie tales....of course
when you have a dunce as a President, what can you expect from the top down?

26. Extremely moving. Chilling. The best journalists exist to right wrongs
and Mr Olbermann is a journalist first class.

His anger was sublime and damning.

It's time to stand up to the fact-deficient pundits in just the manner displayed by KO. Strongly, no backing down, with a clear voice and manner that says "Enough. We're through with this. You're done."

Highly recommended.

Amazing.

... in using such metaphors. The slack-jawed, knuckle-draggers with drool dripping from their chins could only grunt "huh?" to such allusions while others of us giggled gleefully at the on-target analogies. If O'Lielly is Sisyphus, then Olbermann could be our Theseus.

59. the instances where ally soldiers killed nazis officers
In college history class, we watched actual ally footage of the first ally soldiers going into the concentration camps. The soldiers were so horrified and outraged of what they saw, that the filmmaker actually filmed nazis soldiers, especially officers, being shot at the concentration camps. The other nazis soldiers were forced to dig a hole to bury the great number of dead. The nearby town of one of the camps, they filmed bringing the citizens by truck to the camp, the citizens were smiling and waving at the camera, and the ally soldiers made them put the bodies in the graves. Those citizens weren't smiling by then. I believe the film was British. I'll never forget the images of the town's people, because, they were complicit in what happened. They made profits from the soldiers at the camps and they knew what was going on, but did nothing. They were punished for doing nothing. The film showed more than one concentration camp, and there were a few young people in the class that got up and walked out because they couldn't take the images.

Sweet Jesus, I hate Bill O'Reilly.

What kind of argument is Bill trying to make anyway?

The Romans fed Christians to the lions all the time, so it's ok to feed people to lions, it happens all the time.

Approximately 6 million jews died in World War Two, so, according to the argument deaths of jews due to gas happened all the time. So, according to Bill's "logic" it's ok if people die in gas chambers, becasue that happens all the time in war?

What an asshole.

69. Hah! I was just about to write the same thing-- HOLY CRAP!
Unbelievable -- that he excuses the soldiers who shot old men and children begging for their life, that he makes the Americans at Malmedy the murderers instead of the murdered, that he does it not once but twice, that he lies about what he meant, that he DELETES and REWRITES his transcript like something straight out of 1984...

Unbelievable!

How can this not be getting more play?

73. O'Reilly
Clark himself just moments before O'Reilly's statement - referred to the 82nd - which may have caused O'Reilly's unintentional statement:

CLARK: Wait a minute, Bill. The other side of it is what is happening in Iraq? You know, it wasn't just Abu Ghraib. You've got a captain now in the 82nd Airborne who says that this kind of torture and beating up people and so forth was condoned by his unit; the chain of command is protecting it. From the Fox news transcript

As for the facts that US troops did engage in a reprisal slaughter of the German SS - here is the story

The Inspector General of the American First Army learned about the massacre three or four hours after the first survivors were rescued. By late afternoon that day, the news had reached the forward American divisions. In his book , entitled "The Ardennes, The Battle of the Bulge," Hugh Cole wrote the following:

Thus Fragmentary Order 27 issued by Headquarters, 328th Infantry on 21 December for the attack scheduled for the following day says: "No SS troops or paratroopers will be taken prisoners but will be shot on sight."

In his book called "The Other Price of Hitler's War: German Military & Civilian Losses Resulting from WW 2," author Martin Sorge wrote the following regarding the events that took place after the massacre:

"It was in the wake of the Malmedy incident at Chegnogne that on New Year's Day 1945 some 60 German POWs were shot in cold blood by their American guards. The guilt went unpunished. It was felt that the basis for their action was orders that no prisoners were to be taken."

Bill O clarified his point perfectly.

A correction was in order and that is what has happened.

but go ahead and join Olberamn get your panties in a wad over O'Reilly....LOL

74. When you say.....
As for the facts that US troops did engage in a reprisal slaughter of the German SS -.....

that wasn't Malmedy where the reprisal occurred.....,

so O'Reilly was wrong! period.


But What I want to know, next time you talk to him....is why does Bill O'Rielly HATE our troops? For him to be using Malmady in where AMERICANS WERE MURDERED (regardless of what may have happened after-the-fact) to try and justify the massacre of unharmed civilians (none of which occurred in Malmedy or elsewhere) was really an UNPATRIOTIC thing for MR. BILL so do....and he's done it before. That guy should be taken to Gizmo as a traitor as we speak!

76. Corrected
Oreilly corrected his error, he stated it was NOT Malmedy, it was AFTER Malmedy...

which DID occur and IS historically accurate. You have your panties in a wad over nothing.

77. Bass-ackwards
The problem stems from the notion that the Haditha incident was just part of the war thing and is nothing new.

By some weird leap in logic, an Iraqi infant is compared to an SS officer. It baffles me as to why anyone would justify the acts of Haditha to the noble cause that WWII was.

Furthermore, I have yet to figure out any good that can come from the whole Iraq situation...there is absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose.

75. But the point here is....
Even though O'Rilley is revising history, he is still using the actions of the nazis during wwII to justify what american troops are doing today.

The mouthpiece of this administration is justifying war crimes with nazi actions, actions which the nazi's were held accountable for at Nuremberg.

This isn't an accident. It's a calculated attempt to revise history to justify the criminal actions of this evil administration.

What next? Will he claim secret prisons and "extreme rendition" is justified because Jews sent millions of Germans to death camps like Auschwitz?
