O’Reilly: Palin Needs to Go to ‘Political College’

O'Reilly
blogs.abcnews.com

By the way that Bill O’Reilly talks about “the media” with George Stephanopoulos in this clip, you’d think he wasn’t a part of it. According to O’Reilly, “the media presents a distorted picture to Americans” about politics, “because they seize upon the loons on both the left and the right.”

O’Reilly also has a quick breakdown as to why the health care reform bill isn’t going to be a bipartisan triumph—“ideologues on both sides smell blood”—and tells Nancy Pelosi to hang up her hopes about including a public option in the health care bill. And then the subject moves to former-Alaska-governor-turned-Fox-News-commentator Sarah Palin, who O’Reilly says is in need of “political college.” By the way, the “O’Reilly Factor” host has no intention of running for office himself because, according to him, “I have more power doing what I’m doing.”  —KA

O’Reilly is spouting his sophism and propaganda for his master, Rupert Murdoch, for money, just like the rest of the sophists and propagandists on the Fox News Network and all media outlets owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.  The real villain is Rupert Murdoch.

It is a sad day when O’Reilly is the voice of reason within a (cough-puke) news organization.

Hasn’t anyone told O’Reilly he is a loon on the right? We wouldn’t want people left the mistaken impression that he isn’t a far right nut job after all.

Who has a degree in journalism?  From what college? When?  Is dewitching sophistry and propaganda?

Bill OReilly undoubtedly went to the same college Glenn Beck did to get his power, which was to Rupert Murdoch to propagandize against the liberals, socialists and progressives.  All of Rupert Murdoch’s propagandists are only smart enough to follow a script and do as they are told.  Palin may not pass muster with Bill O’Reilly, but she is a sophist and propagandist and that is all Rupert Murdoch is looking for in his media.

At the root of the sophism and propaganda problem, keeping a low profile, is Rupert Murdoch, an Australian that lives in China.  I’m sure he has homes in the United States as well as other countries. 

Rupert Murdoch is the brain following Adolph Hitler’s Plan that through media sophism and propaganda Hitler took over Germany and intended to take over the world, but got a setback, now Rupert Murdoch is working that same plan to take over the world.
 
England is tired of his Glenn Beck sophism and propaganda and now Beck has NO advertisers in England, and is losing advertisers in the United States, but Murdoch keeps him on television daily in his media outlets anyway spouting his sophism and propaganda against liberals, socialists, and progressives to the populace so that no member of the populace will choose to vote for a liberal, socialist or progressive, even though only liberals, socialists and progressives represent the populace, his conservative propaganda is for the populace to only to be conservative and vote for corporations to have all the power, instead of the populace.  It is an evil plot.

O’Reilly is a bumptious blowfish and a total jerk. Sarah Palin graduated from college and earned a degree in journalism. With “friends” like O’Reilly, she doesn’t need enemies.
