The O’Reilly Factor

So a few months ago, I’m flipping through the telly when I come across this fellow replying to viewer mail. The show is on Fox News Channel, and he’s drawing some heated replies. He fires back at them with equal heat, and defends his position well. Plus, he’s got a sense of humor about the whole thing. The show was, of course, The O’Reilly Factor.

Host Bill O’Reilly is a published author and stresses that his show is fair – for the most part, it is. I don’t agree with a few of his views (the Elian saga, the 2000 election, etc.) but he really digs for a solid foundation. When a representative from Bob Jones University was on a month ago, O’Reilly called him on the carpet for what was really going on there: blatant racial segregation. The representative was truly dumbfounded and came off looking like a blubbering idiot.

Not that having people look like a blubbering idiot is O’Reilly’s goal. He presents the news in a very different fashion – as unbiased as possible. The show deals with everything from the light topics to the truly important ones, and it’s a great watch. Check the show’s site. -pm

I really enjoy watching the O'Reilly factor when I'm at home from college, since we get the Fox News cahhnel at home. O'Reilly, really weeds through all the criminal crap going on in Washington and basically shows that everyone is full of shite. I really have alot of respect for him, and his viewers

At first i thought the show was good but now i just classify it under my 'garbage'category. I just got done doing research on Bill O'Reilly and he is as phoney as a three dollar bill. And if matt is a representative of the show's viewers, it just goes to show what kind of people they are when they can't even spell properly in a letter.

Now there's a good way to introduce yourself to the Ping community: insulting one of the earliest members.

Especially when you only occasionally capitalize "I." Good God.

I doubt you even should be heir to such a powerful name. I think Pansy is more like it byatch!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
