Is “Obama Goes Street” Racist?


The latest canard from the Left, as discussed last night on the O’Reilly Factor, is that the racial sterotype of menacing angry black men has led to unfair criticism of President Obama’s kicking “ass” comment in reference to those he finds responsible for the Gulf oil spill disaster.
For example, Mark Halperin of Time Magazine (who had no trouble [...]

Video: The O’Reilly Factor’s Jesse Watters Ambushes Al Gore


The pugnacious producer of Fox News’ “O’Reilly Factor” paid a visit to our favorite global warming alarmist, Al Gore. I have to admit, although I like Bill O’Reilly, I hate the Jesse Watters ambush segments. Still, watching Watters take a bite out of the Goracle — asking him if he was embarrassed by “Climategate” and [...]

How Come Marc Lamont Hill can call John Mayer a “White boy” and Not Be Called a Racist for It?


Joe Klein had a great post today calling out Marc Lamont Hill on last night’s O’Reilly Factor. Those new to NewsReal Blog might be unfamiliar with our history of confronting Hill for his extreme views and for Fox and O’Reilly for putting him on as a foreign policy expert when he specializes in hip-hop culture. [...]

Hip-Hop Expert Hill Opines on National Security


Columbia University Associate Professor Marc Lamont Hill did his usual babbling act on “The O’Reilly Factor” last night.  This time, the issue was putting the Christmas Day underwear bomber and 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed on trial in civil court rather than before a military tribunal.
This expert in hip-hop music might have been able to [...]

“Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”—Whose Morale-ity Will Win?


My maternal grandfather and my father both had something to hide. One made it into military service, the other didn’t.
Growing up as a poor boy in the country my grandfather was a crack-shot and, like most in his generation was eager to serve his country. He slipped through the medical exams and the eye tests. In many [...]

Joe Klein, Idiot-Savant, Despises US


Joe Klein could not let it go.  On the heels of his disastrous appearance on “The Factor” Monday night during which he viciously attacked Glenn Beck, he used the blog Swampland to display his arrogance towards the Fox News audience:

I was on Bill O’Reilly’s program last night, which was sort of hilarious. The most insufferable part [...]

The Final Countdown? Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 31


Remembering this self-deluding rant last year when Bill O’Reilly dared to mock Keith Olbermann’s ratings?
OLBERMANN:  I hate to intrude with the facts, but ours is the highest rated cable news program [among] viewers 35 and younger, and the highest rated cable news program for all viewers not on Fixed [i.e., Fox] News. And since [...]

Bernie Goldberg Thinks I’m a “Kool Aid Drinker” Since I Was Unimpressed by His Toothless Criticisms of the “Hard Right” on O’Reilly


Am I a Kool Aid drinker? Well, this morning I’m actually a coffee drinker. The Kool Aid pitcher in the Swindle-Bey household fridge is just about empty right now.
I bring it up because apparently Fox News commentator Bernie Goldberg seems to think he knows what I’m drinking these days.
Last night I did a few live-blogging [...]

Joe Klein Blasts Glenn Beck As A Hatemonger


Times Magazine’s Joe Klein is at it again.  A few months ago he accused the Fox News network of sedition, while also insulting its viewers as too dumb to understand the “truth.” Appearing as a guest on “The O’Reilly Factor” last night, Klein tried to temper his overall criticism of Fox News but launched a [...]
