    Bill has done it again!! He lumped anyone that owns a "assault weapon" into the fringe wacko catagory. I believe that the love is rapidly leaving our relationship. There's only one thing worse than a ignorant "know it all", and that's one with a nationally popular TV show. This guy is right about some things, but he's stupid about guns.

    I am slowly being more and more turned away from foxnews. used to like them but they are slowly becoming like rest of the media minus rush. though I dont agree with everything rush has to say. I guess its realistic and overhopefull to expect a perfect world which means ones personal ideals.

    I'm a true-blue conservative and I have always believed O'Reilly to be a moronic blow-hard jackass. I laughed my a$$ off when Neal Boortz slammed him a few months back. What a self-righteous butt-nugget!:cuss:

    That was the most irrational and uneducated I've ever seen him.

    You can't say "semi-auto" on tv because everyone just freaks out.

    He used the term "semi-automatics" in the same category as bazookas and thinks they are all under this past AWB.

    He's a fricken putz.

    Bill O'Riley needs but stroked in the mouth. With his jaws wired together for several weeks he just might have to listen. He is showing the difference between anything remotely resembleing a journalist and an entertainer.

    I too was very disappointed. The guy came off like a left-wing wacko. All talk, no brains.

    I still hold hope he is basically an intelligent guy. Send him a polite email (oreilly@foxnews.com), straighten him out, and challenge him to return to facts ... not BS.

    Regards from TX

    Just tell him that he can use an assault weapon to defend his hubcaps from the hordes of teenagers he feels are after them.

    A few weeks ago he said that the assault weapons ban should be renewed because regular citizens don't need bazookas. What an *******.

    Guys, guys! It was a rerun -- a "best of" as it were. This is the same show that gleaned all of these threads here on THR.

    Its been done to death.

    What you won't see repeated is his mea culpa on how the "bazooka" comment was a joke. Of course the replay lets us see one more time how serious he was when he was "joking" and cutting Pratt off from responding to the "bazooka" comment.

    This bozo is never going to shut his big ignorant mouth, and too many people cant accept the fact that he's a damn neoCON. I stopped watching his show quite a while ago, and I'm glad I did. I can watch just about anything else on FoxNews, but not him. He's just too damn stupid and ignorant.

    If Mr. O makes a factual error, then take the time to address a brief and on-point email and nail his Lon Giland keester to the chair.

    If Mr. O expresses an opinion you don't like, sound off in a professional manner.

    The worst thing you can do is let ignorance or stupidity be broadcast without challenge.

    I sent an e-mail to Mr O. and it was....

    ....ignored. Yep. I responded to the original thing about the bazooka and didn't see it on his show. He has an agenda like everyone else. I imagine that he pulls this anti-gun thing to keep some of the basket-case-liberals watching him. Don't know.

    Having everyone get re-torqued off because of the re-run reminds me of the blond who lost 20 bucks betting on a football game. She lost $10 on the play and another $10 on the instant re-play.

    Sorry. Just joshing.

    Conservative and anti-gun. Doesn't sound in the least bit inconsistent to me.

    Sadly, idiocy isn't exclusive to any ideology.

    It's people like O'reilly that have my once-upon-a-time truly conservative in-laws both stomping their feet and yelling for the AWB to be renewed.

    As it turned out, they did not know what an assault rifle is. I explained as thoroughly as I could that it has to do with cosmetics and not "a big black gun" or "high capacity". Don't know if it sunk in.

    Oh, and I don't consider O'Reilly to be much of a conservative. He seems like a populist ******* like Perot. He just tries to guess what the trailer park set is thinking.

    We all know that he's wrong! Dead wrong.

    Even if he wasn't, I still don't like him. He seems to be talking down to everyone.

    O'Reilly lost favor with me a long time ago. Much more recently than his AWB idiocy were his bizarre comments on his feud with Drudge. I don't really have an opinion one way or the other on Drudge, but O'Reilly's nuts.

    The gist of it went like this:
    1. O'Reilly claimed he and Hillary Clinton were tied for number one or two (or something like that) on the bestseller list.
    2. Drudge posted the numbers from Neilsen that proved that O'Reilly was lying through his teeth about that. Actually, Clinton is up there, but O'Reilly's book is way back on the list.
    3. O'Reilly didn't like that, so he accused Drudge of lying (even though Drudge's numbers can be confirmed by asking Neilsen) and called the internet "a threat to democracy" which is "badly in need of editors."

    *Remember* O'reilly, went into the talk radio thing right when Rush Limbaugh started to go deaf. O'reilly has a much better TV show than radio, but he was totally trying to pull from Limbaugh; even though it was a dismal failure.

    O'Reily on the AM dial

    He was on the air here in Chattanooga less than a year. His time slot is now filled with some locally produced medical Q&A program.

    I had the feeling it was a "best of" rerun ...

    ... however, that doesn't make me feel any better. As a matter of fact, it bothers me more. They had plenty of time to realize Bill was full of manure ... and then they run it as a "best of"? Bad form. Very bad form.

    Being capable of rational thought, I hate O'Reilly with a bitter passion. The guy is a sanctimonious twit.
