Bill O'Reilly Extends Radio Show One More Year

DID IT BACKFIRE?

O'Reilly Keeps Show One More Year, Cites Net 'Insanity'







Did last week's Media Matters- fueled smear campaign actually backfire against its participants? Based on Bill O'Reilly's own words, that appears to be the case.

In September, we reported that Bill was ready to give up his radio program in December in order to focus on his top- rated O'Reilly Factor show and other pursuits. At the time, all signs were pointing to that outcome.

After last week's attempt by left- wing bloggers to portray O'Reilly as a racist, however, the FOX News Channel host has apparently changed his mind, deciding to instead stick around and fight for one more year.

From the O'Reilly Factor last night:


First of all, I've decided to extend The Radio Factor for another season because it's needed to balance the far-left insanity now in play on the Net. I realize many of you are working when the radio program is broadcast, but you can hear it any time on the Net by subscribing to our premium services on billoreilly.com or on XM and Sirius.

Of course, our 400 affiliated stations coast-to-coast make this a powerful engine, and one that is needed in fighting for truth in this country.

Now here's how insane things have gotten. 41 Democratic senators took the time to condemn Rush Limbaugh for a cloudy statement he made on the radio. The vile Media Matters outfit says he disrespected some troops, but the transcripts do not indicate that. And all Americans are entitled to the benefit of the doubt if there is one. And that is certainly the case here.

You may remember that last August 13th, Senator Barack Obama said this about the fight in Afghanistan.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SEN. BARACK OBAMA (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: We've got to get the job done there. And that requires us to have enough troops that we're not just air raiding villages and killing civilians, which is causing enormous problems there.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Now some said Obama was demeaning the American military, but we said he was not. He was discussing the consequences of air power versus infantry. We gave Senator Obama the benefit of the doubt.

But there was no doubt when NBC News analyst William Arkin insulted American forces writing, "Through every Abu Ghraib and Haditha, through every rape and murder, the American public has indulged those in uniform...this NBC report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary oops -- sorry -- volunteer -- force that thinks it is doing the dirty work."

Now Senator Harry Reid and others were really concerned about insults to the military that could have condemned Arkin. It doesn't get worse than that.

But Senator Reid and others said nothing, as did NBC News, which was unbelievable.

So this whole Limbaugh thing is another partisan charade engineered by the far-left, which attacked me last week and Mr. Limbaugh this week, to divert attention away from the disastrous MoveOn Petraeus ad.


If Media Matters did convince O'Reilly to remain on the radio, should George Soros ask for a refund?

  • Come on Brian -- you're smarter than that.

    O'Reilly stayed because he got offered a renewed contract at good terms. Pure and simple. Had he left the radio, another conservative talker would have replaced him on most channels, and he'd still have his TV show.

  • Thank God he's staying on, the world needs to have people like O'Reilly to try to make sense of what is going on in the USA now. I hope his audience continues to grow and people continue to learn the truth.

  • Glenda, you're not ready for the truth.

  • O'Reilly's TV audience numbers are blowing away the leftist competition.

    They will continue as long as he keeps putting the spotlight on the dumb-ass judicial decisions that support child pedophiles, the illegal aliens and border issues, and political corruption (George Soros).

    His international spotlight is producing remarkable results.

  • Ironically, Soros endures another antisemitic attack...from bensonhurst!

  • Falafel Boy did an about-face because he gets to go up against Limpbowel in the number one market, and the egomaniacal liar and agent of Satan believes he has a shot at the gold.

    And if Pig Man keeps pissing off substantial chunks of his loyal base of synchophants, he may indeed.

  • Hashlover,

    Spew all you want Rage Boy. Your limp responses can't compete with the facts. O'Reilly's TV viewership audience numbers are crushing the competition.

  • Was I speaking of the Loofah-holy's television show, or his radio program, or did you allow your cheap combover and the glare from some of the cheesiest furniture seen this side of the Syrian bazaars to obscure your vision?

    "Hooked On Phonics" can be found at your local big-box store...

    Does the name RADIO TRANQUILIZER trigger your cognitive skills, or must a cash-register bell be employed?
