O'Reilly Targeted By Erroneous Report


Anti-O'Reilly Smear Just The Latest Personal Attack

Continuing their long
campaign to destroy conservative talkers through sleazy personal attacks, shadowy enemies of Bill O'Reilly have accused him of stinking up a local gym.

According to an unsourced item in yesterday's New York Daily News, an O'Reilly assistant was supposedly in charge of clean-up:

Bill O'Reilly is causing yet another stink, but this time it's in the gym. The Faux-news man has relied on one of his minions to wipe the sweat off exercise equipment after he's done.

"It was really disgusting," said a nauseated onlooker. "The poor kid followed him around, just sopping up O'Reilly's body fluids."

But as TVNewser notes, the story appears baseless and the O'Reilly Factor host is not amused:

O'Reilly says he "does not belong to a gym," nor "own gym equipment." An FNC spokesperson confirms that he doesn't go to the company gym, either.

On his show Monday night O'Reilly called out the misreporting of Rush & Malloy.

Here's their clip of Bill's response:

Interestingly, O'Reilly arch- nemesis Al Franken was also once accused of odd exercise- room antics, but the finger- pointers didn't hide their identities:

(Minneapolis City Pages) "He yells, 'Go Al!' and then puts his sweaty towel in his mouth, shakes his head back and forth, and growls like a dog," says Lauren Zeller, a 28-year-old risk consultant. "The cycle repeats: 'Go Al!,' towel, shake head, growl."

In that case, there was no dispute over whether Franken actually worked out there, the room is located inside his condo building.

Don't expect the truth to stop the ongoing campaign to discredit conservative voices through personal smears.

And this certainly isn't limited to O'Reilly: Rush Limbaugh has long been targeted as well, with sleazy attacks on both his appearance and dating choices. Worse, any woman known to be dating Rush can expect full- scale character assassination.

Though Bill could have chosen to ignore the latest slime from his mainstream media enemies, he instead decided to confront it head-on. While that might not always be the best idea, here it did seem to work.

  • Damn.

    O'Reilly was talking about lynching Michelle Obama tonight.


    Seems like Imus got cut down for less.

    But, then again, Imus doesn't work for Fox News.

  • Looks like Al Franken's "work out routine" is paying off.

    "Tuesday, February 19, 2008

    The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey found Al Franken slightly ahead of incumbent Senator Norm Coleman. Franken...leads Coleman 49% to 46%.
    ...These results show a significant improvement for Franken since an early November poll found him trailing by seven-points".

    Wow a 10 point swing.

    "'Go Al!,' towel, shake head, growl."

  • O'Reilly this week said NBC News was irresponsible for reporting on something that was also broadcast by Fox. Pot, meet kettle.

  • Hey Hashgurgle, your Olbermann-inspired attempt to smear O'Reilly is failing. O'Reilly actually defended Michelle Obama, if you bother to read the full transcript.

    Hashfanatic would never let facts get in the way of his astute analysis.
