O'Reilly & Rivera Stick Up For Mel - Rip Olberman, Stewart & Colbert
O'Reilly blasts "smear merchants" and "vampires" criticizing Mel Gibson; Rivera smears Olbermann, Stewart, and Colbert

Summary: On his Fox News program, Bill O'Reilly called Mel Gibson's recent anti-Semitic comments "inexcusable," but said it is "more important" to discuss the "point where the media and individual Americans start to enjoy the suffering of rich and powerful people." Guest Geraldo Rivera later suggested that O'Reilly refer to "that schmuck from MSNBC," apparently MSNBC host Keith Olbermann; Rivera added that the "schmuck from MSNBC" is a "lowlife." Rivera also asserted that Comedy Central hosts Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert "make a living putting on video of old ladies slipping on ice and people laughing" and that they "exist in a small little place where they count for nothing."

1. And if it was Michael Moore instead of Gibson...
they would have been frothing at the mouth while roasting him over an open fire. :eyes: What idiots.

4. O' Reilly is useless and Rivera has really become a laughing stock
I remember liking him at one time many years ago but apparently he made a pact with the devil.

5. Tee Hee!
Since he's incapable of distinguishirg between Funniest Home Videos and those "other" shows, I doubt his opinion is of any serious value.
The battle lines are being drawn...I know which side I'm on.

8. "putting on video of old ladies slipping on ice and people laughing"
as opposed to making a living getting hit in the nose by chairs, opening empty vaults, and giving away troop locations?? I don't see a bright future as a television critic awaiting Geraldo Rivera

12. Has Rivera switched parties yet?
Rivera "exists in a small little place where they count for nothing." I wish a NY PC in his area would check his voter reg. Anyone? But he is probably eother PND or indie, which would be a lie as he is as partisan a Repuke as it gets whatever his reg.

21. Vampires? What is this, From Dusk Till Dawn?
Are they going to have a sequel to Dawn of the Dead with undead liberals stalking Gibson and critzing his bigoted comments?

O'Lielly is such a tool...

25. come on
"point where the media and individual Americans start to enjoy the suffering of rich and powerful people."

People like Bill and Mel are really at their worst not when people are talking about the bad things they may say or do but... when no one is talking about them. They need the attention. It's what they live for. Bill and Rivera don't care what the media says about them as long as the media is saying something. So I shall not cry for them.
