On the same night that CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin smeared Ted Cruz as anti-Semitic, Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera on Thursday did the same thing. Regarding the Texas senator’s claim that Donald Trump represents New York values, Rivera slimed, “Aside from the stinking, anti-Semitic implications that I see in that whole New York values money and media coded message that he put out there.”
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.
Appearing as a guest on Friday's The O'Reilly Factor, FNC correspondent Geraldo Rivera declared that "you've got to be a nut to get the Republican nomination," and that Republicans "have a suicide complex" as he responded to host Bill O'Reilly recalling that Hillary Clinton's campaign has already started characterizing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump as a "nut."
If you're going to flaunt your superior knowledge, it's a good idea to get it right . . . On this evening's O'Reilly Factor, Geraldo Rivera scolded guest host Eric Bolling for pronouncing the state of Nevada as Ne-VA-da. Condescendingly instructed Rivera: "It's a Spanish word, Ne-VAH-da. Gringo."
There's just one problem. When it comes to pronouncing the name of the state, and not the Spanish word, Bolling was right and Rivera was wrong: "The only acceptable pronunciation of the state is 'Nev-AD-a,' not 'Nev-AH-da.' Pronouncing the state’s name incorrectly can draw ire among residents."--Time magazine.
On today's Morning Joe, a seething Mika Brzezinski ripped Bill O'Reilly for his failure, during his interview of Donald Trump on last night's Factor, to defend Megyn Kelly against Trump's attacks on her. Trump has called Kelly a "third-rate reporter," a "lightweight" and "not good at what she does." Rather than challenging Trump over his criticism of Kelly, O'Reilly spent the segment importuning him to change his mind and appear at tonight's debate. At one point, as we noted here, O'Reilly even resorted to citing the biblical tenet of forgiveness, to which an unyielding Trump shot back that the Bible also speaks of "an eye for an eye."
Brzezinski suggested O'Reilly should have retorted: "excuse me? You're talking about her intellect? She's a lawyer . . . she's a mother of three. You do not undermine the credibility and the intellect of my colleague." Concluded Mika: "where was that, Bill? That was lame!"
Despite his ongoing feud with Fox News, Donald Trump honored a previous promise and appeared on The Factor tonight. Bill O'Reilly tried a variety of tactics to convince Trump to participate in Fox's GOP debate tomorrow night.
Nothing was working, so O'Reilly played his trump card, citing Christianity: "the tenet of forgiveness . . . don't you think that's the right thing to do?" Shot back Trump: "it probably is. But it's called an eye for an eye I guess also."
The popular 90's-era science fiction TV show The X-Files is back on prime time with a special 6 episode run. The series, which ran on Fox for 9 seasons between 1993 and 2002 and produced two movies, returned with some new conspiracy theories related to the show’s long quest for the truth about extraterrestrials – as well as a lot of unnecessary politics.
Looking for some comic relief after President Obama's teary announcement of new executive orders on gun control, and Chris Matthews' fawning interview of Hillary Clinton? You've come to the right place.
On this evening's O'Reilly Factor, Dem strategist Nomiki Konst claimed that forcing law-abiding Americans to register their guns would stop the "majority" of mass shootings. You're killing me, Nomiki—you should excuse the expression.
The Media Research Center’s Director of Media Analysis Tim Graham made his latest appearance on the Fox News Channel (FNC) program The O’Reilly Factor Tuesday night for what was quite the lively segment with fill-in host Eric Bolling and ETWN correspondent Lauren Ashburn as Graham and Bolling spared with Ashburn over the media’s obsession with Donald Trump and double standard when it comes to exposing lies by Hillary Clinton.
On Wednesday night, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly pressed NBC’s Ted Koppel on the state of the country: “...a new Wall Street Journal poll says just 20% of Americans believe the country is headed in the right direction....do you believe the USA is in bad shape right now, Mr. Koppel? And if so, why?” Koppel dismissed the public’s pessimism and tried to minimize the threat from ISIS terrorists: “I don't think the country is in as bad a shape as your question implies. I think we’re scaring ourselves to death with this ISIS threat."
Appearing on Fox News’s O’Reilly Factor Monday night, media analyst Bernie Goldberg ripped President Obama’s address to nation on terrorism and argued that even members of the liberal media would start to abandon the commander-in-chief: “There are people in the media who have a lot invested in Barack Obama and they're not gonna throw him under the bus. But when Barack Obama makes you look foolish by defending him, that's another story.”
Tuesday Night on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly and Bernie Goldberg discussed the ‘morality play’ created by NBC's Harry Smith on the Syrian refugee crisis, complete with Bible verses, as was previously documented on NewsBusters. Smith had tried to compare the Japanese internment with the refugee crisis. Bernie set fire to the idea when he said, “He [President Roosevelt] only interned Japanese Americans, and let's emphasize they were Americans, because they weren't white."
