On Monday night on The O’Reilly Factor, Charles Krauthammer discussed with Bill O’Reilly the growing rhetoric of the White House and its attempt to downplay or diminish the threat that radical Islam is on the world. Shortly after a clip of President Obama criticizing the media for conflating ISIS’s power, Krauthammer opened up on the President.
The war of words between Bill O’Reilly and George Will over the long-term effects on Ronald Reagan of the 1981 assassination attempt amounts to a loose thread that could eventually cause the unraveling of conservatism, argued Sean Illing in a Friday article.
Illing opined that “conservatism, as a governing philosophy, continues to resonate because of Reagan’s perceived success” -- “perceived” being the operative word, since Illing went on to argue that “Reagan’s policies…made government more bloated, more defense-oriented, more oligarchic, and less democratic. Conservatives never reckon with these facts because the ahistorical canonization of Reagan prevents them from doing so.”
Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly attacked CNN's Carol Costello on the Wednesday edition of his O'Reilly Factor program over her "cheap shot" at the moderators of the recent GOP presidential debate on Fox Business Network. O'Reilly targeted Costello's "completely ludicrous" remark that "the moderators didn't ask very challenging questions." He also underlined that the CNN anchor has "a history of provocative statements."
Appearing on FNC’s O’Reilly Factor Wednesday night, both Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina hammered the obvious double standard against conservatives in the liberal media. Host Bill O’Reilly asked Rubio: “Is the media out to get you?” Rubio replied: “I do think there’s a bias against – at least a double standard when it comes to those of us who are conservatives. They hold us to a different standard than they hold Democrats and I think you see – and liberals, especially.”
Syndicated columnist and FNC contributor Charles Krauthammer was Bill O’Reilly’s first guest on the 11:00 p.m. Eastern edition of The O’Reilly Factor after Wednesday’s CNBC debate and tore into the moderators for a “most appalling performance” in which they were “obnoxious,” “interrupting,” and “disorganized.”
Appearing as a guest on Friday's MSNBC Live with Jose Diaz-Balart, San Francisco Board of Supervisors member David Campos defended his city's decision to keep its sanctuary city policy, and, as he began his defense, he absurdly claimed that, although the killing of Kate Steinle by an illegal immigrant was "tragic," that it is "equally tragic" that people like Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly "scapegoat" "undocumented immigrants."
During Thursday night's edition of The O'Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel, host Bill O'Reilly tried to demonstrate the bad judgment of the Democratic National Committee allying itself with the Black Lives Matter movement, which has members who have called for violence against police officers in protests all across the country.
However, Keith Boykin, an African-American who once served as a special assistant to president Bill Clinton, aggressively asserted that none of the BLM leaders agreed with that concept -- so much so that the anchor had to turn off his microphone so the host and another guest could take part in the discussion.
Discussing the media’s reaction to Tuesday’s presidential debate during Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly and The Five co-host Dana Perino blasted the liberal press for their pandering to Hillary Clinton after pushing for Vice President Joe Biden to run that’s now turned into calls for him to stay out of the race.
During an appearance on Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor Monday night, veteran journalist Bob Woodward had a bleak assessment of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign which he said was clearly in trouble. Woodward explained that “there are lots of unanswered questions, particularly on the e-mail but as I read your book about Reagan, which is a full excavation of his biography and everything in his life, every stage, we need to do that with Hillary Clinton.”
Fox News Channel (FNC) host Bill O’Reilly tore into Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz during the talking points memo portion of Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor over what he deemed “the biggest smear so far in the presidential campaign” against GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio and a donor with a massive historical memorabilia collection.
Fox News Channel (FNC) host Bill O’Reilly slammed the liberal media at the top of Wednesday’s O’Reilly Factor for not having exposed the “the disastrous foreign policy of the Obama administration” in a pattern of behavior that he proclaimed as “simply stunning.” O’Reilly kicked off his four-minute-plus opening commentary by highlighting results of a recent national poll on the Iran deal that found only 21 percent of Americans in support of it, which he then concluded that shows “the folks have turned against President Obama's deal with the mullahs.”
