You're assuming logic drives their mentality rather than tribalism.

I have the same types questions of The Left when it comes to tolerance and respectfulness of others' opinions, as well as obeying laws.

Each party has serious flaws, undermining its own legitimacy.

Liberals selectively obey laws.

Conservatives selectively abide by morality.

No wonder our country is fucked.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

Everyone knows that all Bill O'Reilly is guilty of is locker room talk. Just another liberal media witch-hunt. But Bill Clinton!!!

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

I first watched Bill Orilley when he was on Inside Edition circa 1990. That was a trash show that I enjoyed when I was in 6th grade. Never watched anything after that. I remember Stern making fun of him for having way too much merch on his website. Like No Spin Zone door mats and stuff. He's always been a joke.

Re: Bill O'Reilly - Exiting Fox News

I knew that OAN network would be lining up to woo the sleaze bag. They're like Fox with even weirder personalities who seem to be manufactured right wing clones.

Quote:
“Our management here is obviously discussing it,” said Charles Herring, president of One America News Network, a conservative cable channel that reaches 35 million households. “Clearly he’s built one heck of a brand. Clearly there’s been accusations that need to be looked at also.”

OAN? Really? Bill should retire. OAN would be like Bill having to go back to Inside Edition.

He should write his next novel, Killing O'Reilly.

Ah, shit. I wish I had seen that earlier. He's over there on another thread wondering why his social life sucks. I can see why.

Oh, then you'll probably love the one about him seemingly having more compassion for the "dude in college who has had their life ruined with a false rape accusation" over an actual rape victim.
