    ...
    I watched his show for a good many years, but I had to stop about 5 or 6 years ago (well before I unplugged) because of the bombast and his attitude.
    That, and he claimed to be an independent when he was clearly nothing of the sort.
    Some posters here try the same trick, and its just as lame.

    Trust me, this guy is washed up and should be replaced ASAP. I think his ratings are a result of his time-slot and viewer inertia. ol' Bill does not even seem to like his job anymore, he might be doing it solely to promote his books.

    No, but it makes it so common throughout our society that it renders this entire thread meaningless in any useful context.

    I really dislike screaming matches on the 'news'. Something that American pundits do all the time. Never-mind the distortions and the outright lies that they are so prone to. My question is how many times do you get lied to before you give up on a network? That's the two major reasons why I gave up on faux news, telling lies and distorting the truth, and the screaming matches.

    And O lie-ly is really prone to both.

    This morning on Good Morning America, one of the male talking heads was pimping his latest whatever, and I see it everywhere I look. O'Reilly is no different. Just "servicing the public", if you ever heard Carlin's monologue about that. (Hint: it involves being bent over with the servicer standing behind you)

    Judging from the fact that everyone jumped in to say "O'Reilly is arrogant!" and "he sells stuff on his TV show" and no one has said "George Will had an important point, here's where he's right" I'm chalking this up to more hysteria.

    Yeah, O's a tough customer. People who don't like it can always climb into their safe space.

    One of my relatives has loaned me his copy of Killing Reagan and insisted I read it. He really liked it. I need to read it before Thanksgiving Day and our family reunion where I will see him. For the sake of family harmony I will have to say I liked it, although I would not buy any of O'Reilly's books. I do agree that he comes across as a jerk.

    Quick: which personality has more viewers throughout the nation - Obama or O'Reilly?

    Try O'Reilly. And THAT, boys and girls, should tell you everything you need to know about the general mental state of America.

    And then, of course, there is the Trumpster...

    It is absolutely incredible. O'Reilly is getting upset over a book review. I'm not an admirer of George Will, but O'Reilly is way over the top here.

    Incredible.
    It's O'Reilly. The man is living ooze, the most self-obsessed commentator to be given regular air time. He's the embodiment of everything wrong with cable television news.

    They ought to change the name to the O'Reilly shopping channel or the Trump channel as too many of them are bowing down, or worse, to Trump.
