FNC’s Jesse Watters went to the International UFO Congress gathering in Scottsdale, Arizona a couple of weeks ago – and discovered those who’ve had alien encounters support Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders.
Earlier this week, Meredith Shiner at Yahoo News, a political reporter with roughly six years of experience and a jourmalism degree from Duke, demonstrated breathtaking ignorance about Ted Cruz's reference to God-given rights. She tweeted the following in reaction: "Bizarre to talk about how rights are God-made and not man-made in your speech announcing a POTUS bid? When Constitution was man-made?"
In a post on Shiner's tweet on Monday, I wondered how widespread such breathtaking ignorance might be. In his Fox News "Watters' World" segment on Bill O'Reilly's show on Tuesday, Jesse Watters found some individual answers, many of them far from encouraging:
During Thursday’s edition of The Five on the Fox News Channel (FNC), co-host Bob Beckel displayed his middle finger toward fellow panelist Jesse Watters during a discussion about how race-baiting by Democrats in the runup to the 2014 midterm elections backfired.
The discussion erupted following a point from Watters that the Democratic Party uses race in trying to convince voters to not vote Republican because they’re afraid to lose scores of African-American voters that have routinely voted for Democrats. Co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle added that such rhetoric doesn’t work in bringing Americans together.
How does the left-wing ACLU weigh in on ISIS? Fox News’ Jesse Watters wanted to find out so he went to an ACLU conference in Princeton, N.J. and found out on Sept. 29’s O’Reilly Factor.
Watters began by questioning members about the “war on terror.” After several members told Watters they couldn’t support it, he wanted to know how America should treat ISIS instead. “These ISIS members that are beheading Americans, what would you do with them?”
"Person on the street" interviews are among the more discouraging presentations one can find on news shows these days. All too often, we see low-information people who think they're so smart show us how disturbingly ignorant they actually are.
That they are disheartening doesn't mean they aren't sometimes entertaining. Fox News's Jesse Watters had one such segment on Monday. He interviewed eight women, several of them attractively endowed by their Creator, at the beach in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Their intellectual prowess, however, was a bit lacking in certain instances, occasionally hilariously so, as Watters launched into questions about "powerful women":
As NewsBusters previously reported, Chris Matthews on Wednesday asked Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert, "When are we going to have the book we've really been waiting for, 'Killing O'Reilly?'"
On Fox News's O'Reilly Factor Friday, during the "Pinheads of the Week" segment, Imus in the Morning executive producer Bernard McGuirk called Matthews "a bitter, spittle-spewing psycho" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):
What better place is there, really, to corner news executives about media bias than the White House Correspondents Association Dinner? That's what Fox News producer Jesse Watters of The O'Reilly Factor had in mind when he headed out with camera and microphone to the "nerd prom" this past Saturday.
Even though there's copious amounts of adult beverages at the WHCA dinner, it seems in vino veritas doesn't hold when it comes to media executives copping to their biases. Some simply denied the obvious while others were visibly agitated at the very premise of the question.
Last night Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly aired an ambush interview that "O'Reilly Factor" producer Jesse Watters sprung on Vivian Schiller, National Public Radio's president.
Last week, Schiller fired Williams over the phone in reaction to a comment the Fox News contributor made on the October 18 edition of O'Reilly's eponymous program.
Schiller, no stranger to cable news -- she used to head up CNN's documentary division -- also put her foot in her mouth last week by flippantly dismissing Williams's comments on the "Factor" as something he should have kept between himself and his psychiatrist.
It has been something that there have been rumblings about, but no one has really put the x's and o's together entirely - that General Electric (NYSE:GE) is using its media arm, NBC Universal to promote President Barack Obama's so-called progressive agenda for its own financial gain.
However, as just previewed by Amy Ridenour, Fox News Channel host Bill O'Reilly attempted to do so at the top of his April 23 "The O'Reilly Factor" broadcast during his "Talking Points Memo" segment. O'Reilly outlined how Obama has gotten support from the NBC networks both pre-election and post-election.
"Will General Electric get paid for supporting President Obama - that is the subject of this evening's Talking Points Memo," O'Reilly said. "As everybody knows, GE, which owns NBC has been very aggressive in helping Barack Obama - first supporting the president in the election and now attacking his critics."
