Trump has done a lot of dreadful things, but people prefer to go back to his anecdote on an open mike.
It's just one terrible thing about Trump - plenty of others to choose from. With Clinton it's STILL just Foundation/Benghazi.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Is Bill O'Reilly worse than Rush Limbaugh?

I don't follow either so I'm not sure. I think I remember O'Reilly saying the slaves who built the White House were "well-fed" and Limbaugh calling a woman advocating for insurers to cover birth control pills a "slut".

Have they made recent comments more offensive than those?

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Some people here don't remember when Shaun King went after Peyton Manning by leaving out parts of the accusation from his then trainer, making it sound a lot different.

Eventually, we come to find out Shaun King was just making shit up, sensationalizing himself.

Like what he's doing now.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Why would Shaun King bring up Bill Clinton?

I wonder if Fox News will pay out the remainder of O'Reilly's contract? I think I read that it was recently extended.

The new contract has some built-in "outs" for Fox but O'Reilly will still get tens of millions of dollars, just not the full value of the new contract, according to this CNN story:

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Best O'Reilly moment, which generated one of the biggest memes ever, had to be this:



One of the few times where it looked like Bill was really bothered and upset with no recourse.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Now Breitbart says Billy was a Centrist. Wonder why they're trying to put that label on him.

That's like trying to put a suit on Billy that was made-to-fit for Dana Perino, and saying, "Oh my. That fits perfectly!"

White male heterosexual Christian victimization was his specialty, such a nasty man.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

So if you don't have a white guilt complex that makes you racist? I was going to put this in the Regressive Left thread but never did when MTV displayed their full hatred and racism towards white men, and had to remove their "Resolutions for White Guys" video from youtube the same day they put it up.

Are you saying you think racism is merely a fiction created by guilty whites?

It's all part of the MRA nonsense. White guys have it the worst, according to them, because all of these women and minorities want equal treatment these days and that's scawy.

And here's a promo-only (not done during the show) parody from Trevor Noah.

So it's not just women.

It's not "racism" when it's directed towards those who are in power.

Basically, those who are not in a power position (minorities) don't have the power to hold over those who do have the power (white/hetero/Christian).
