I'm quite the liberal, but I really don't mind Bill-O nearly as much as the rest of his joke of a network. I'm not going to review his positions, I'll review his show. He has some good guests, he certainly speaks his mind, (usually being dead wrong,) but he doesn't sound like he's talking from a script. he really is speaking from the heart. That heart just happens to be of an old Irish racist that's damning of the unfortunate, but true to himself in the end. As painful as it is for me to say this, his shows are waaaaaaay more entertaining than all the shows on MSNBC. In the end it's on a "news network and is entertainment supposed to trump being informational? for that I go with a 4.5
A word my Grandfather (Theron Harless who is past away )often used for a Snappy dressed person. This is from the hills of West other meanings ;chiefly dial: attractive, smart, fine. The O'reilly Factor is a "must watch" nightly. Keep up the Great work!
The guy you on on talking about military funerals is a IDIOT, you wanna save money tel the commander and chief to stop air force one for personal trip for his daughters. They have been on vac 3 times so far this year and used air force one. Do you have any idea the money involved in flying a freakin air plane?? Just saying why take away from people who fought and deserve a honorable funeral, when there is more non sense money being used........ Think about that you idiot
85 billion in debt i lost my house because i was behind 2 payments why? and if im not mistaken alot of the debt was due from the the Presidents before him so i really think romni or any other president in office now would be taking the heat from you and every other human. So my thing to you and everyone else who has something to say until you can run that office shut your mouth and concentrate on the cardashiens.
My now wife was in the same boat. When she watched CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and PBS, she felt that she was getting ALL the news. I had noticed her watching more and more FOX News in the morning as we readied ourself for WORK. Her comment was, "I don't hear the other networks discussing some of these issues". She is right, the above networks are TOO liberal to cover the TRUE issues.
The minute i write on oreilly,s face book and put my views and speak my mind I get spammed is it because I'm democrat and u don't want to hear what the winning party has to say u get to say all ur hog wash how's that fair and balanced
I Started Watching Him When I Started Watching CNN,MSNBC,The Networks and PBS objectively and Thinking for myself.( Which,I realise you're NOT supposed to do!!)I Realised Just how Neo-Stalinistic they are.O'Reilly and The rest of FOX is the only place to find all points of View.That's Why The Left HATES them.The ONLY Place that's Fair and Balanced!
This man is an absolute ass hat. I'm sure he might have things to say that I can agree with but his ignorance doesn't allow me to watch for that one in a million statement. I can honestly say that I would rather watch this man at the top of a cliff and take a dive. Now here's Sting.. what?, FUCK IT WE'LL DO IT LIVE!
Gentlemen, If I may, I have to disagree with you both. Sometimes I don't agree with Mr. O'reilly and get extremely flustered with his take on the news, yet he does much better than the commentators on the other channels (ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC). Obviously you haven't studied and conducted any research. Your both are just blabbering to think your important. You both need to "WAKE UP!"
The O'Reilly Factor is a show on the Fox News Channel . about Bill O'Reilly putting no spin in news. O'Reilly along with guest dissect the news of the day. The show segments are also interesting. They include Pinheads and Patriots Talking Points Memos among others in the show.. One thing he is fair to everybody who appears on his show. He tell the truth and put no spin into it witch is the right thing to do. Over all The O'Reilly Factor is a good show with interesting guest who fill it out the end or re view .
I love the "no spin zone". The Factor is a program that can be trusted to provide the correct information so that I can decide where I stand on that issue. I have learned that most of the information that comes from the "Left" is nothing more than insults and name calling. It is not a very intelligent dialogue and is definately not informative. If it were not for the Factor and Fox Cable news, I would not know the truth of the issues that directly affect my life, my physical security, my financial security. I don't want to hear name calling. I want to know the facts of the issues at hand.
Ok despite those of you that don't like O'reilly. He is down the middle on the Issues. He is neather to the right or left on any issue. I loved how he called out Washington's Governor. On holiday displays at the capitol. I started watching him after 9/11. I have watched him on and off for the past 7 years. I loved how he went after Barney Frank D-Ma. He was only one of a few that actually asked Predident Elect Barrack Obama any hard questions. CNN and MSNBC should just put up a blank screen every night at 8:00pm. If he wasn't doing a good job. People wouldn't watch his show.
I HATE FOX NEWS. I hate everything about it and dislike everyone wh works for them. But of all the things I hate about Fox news, it's Bill O'Reilly. I ate stupid punks like him who think they're right about whatever they say. The only credit I give him is the fact that after Obama finally agreed to go on his show, he at least gives Obama a fighting chance on this biased network. I'm glad Nas & Ludacris protested, cause now they know that we're not playing around with them anymore, and that we're not afraid to take action against them.
This show is a complete waste of time for many reasons. I do not understand why people think that Bill O'Reilly is smart. He thinks he is, but the thing is, he is just blind with being smug. That doesn't require a talent. What he is good at is fooling people, like the extreme right-wing. Every time I see him on television, I always have to laugh in a way. I guess if you are a blind right-wing conservative with no sense of concern for reality, you will like this show. For the rest of the world, we all live in the year 2009. Thank you.
Bill O'Reilly is a man who comes off as an idiot, or a genius depending on who you're talking to. He is highly intelligent, with a Conservative bias that is obvious, however if you care to watch in further, you see that he makes informed decisions, based on what he truly believes in. Thus, he is often referred to as a Conservative, because of his Catholic upbringing, which has indeed shaped some of opinions.
However, he has some Democrat views, and is one of George Bush's most honest critics. About Bush he said, "I believe Bush is looking out for us, or tries to. But trying, and doing, are two different things." Things like this, prove that he is not a Republican pawn, but an informed citizen, who others should heed example of. If everyone put as much thought into their careers, views, and lifestyle that Bill does, then we would have a much more informed world. And that does not mean taking everything he says as gospel. I don't agree with him on his position on Abortion (I'm pro-choice).
Now, to the show. I'll admit that Bill O'Reilly often comes off an rude, and obnoxious. However, he gives the people equal time to prove him wrong, and his guests interrupt him, as much as he interrupts them. I think his show is one of the most informed shows, and there is a reason that is #1 in all of cable news programs. So there.
At one time I had a dislike for Bill O'Reilly. One of us changed after he became a Culture Warrior. He is factual in his reports. Gives an opportunity for a response from both sides of the story and follows up on incomplete stories.
The only problem that I have with The Factor; Bill may have one to many issues on each show. I'd rather he spent more time with 2 or 3 guests and have more time for commentaries. Of course as with other talk shows; commercials pay the bills and they always interrupt at crucial discussions. I still place The Factor #1 in my book.
Despite many personal views that I disagree with him on, I think Bill O'Reilly does a great job with The O'Reilly Factor. He appears to be able to take command of his show, which is something you can't say for many other news anchors. When a guest is being ridiculous, he will not just sit there and let them get away with it. I like that O'Reilly is a wordsmith and attempts to broaden the vocabulary of his audience, because I, too, have a love for vocabulary and wish more people would share that interest. As for his personal views, O'Reilly seems to be a right-wing thinker, but is at least reasonable and willing to respect the views of most others. He usually has a balanced assortment of guests and I think his show is a tribute to how far non-network news has come.
Theres something about this show that keeps me tuning in and it most certainly isnt because I agree with O'Reilly. Its probably because I enjoy him annoying me!
There is something to be said at what Bill considers Prime-Time news and the reckoning that serious issues and more importanly the depth he chooses to gointo can be covered in the very shirt amount of time that is normally alloted. Its doesnt help the matter than a good chunk of that time is wasted on promoting the guests' new products (eg books), small talk, bad jokes, and the quite often discussion about whos not getting chance to talk.
What Bill is good at it being no-nonsense, even if he is as bias as a bowls ball: Sorry Bill but you can't claim otherwise when you constantly guide your discussion on your own outlook on life. I suppose its fine to do that, but it's misleading to do it under 'NO spin' and 'fair and balanced' banners.
Bill is also good at picking up on subjects that the bulk of the media ignore, theres many time he does make you wonder, why noone else is talking about the stuff he is. HOwever on the otherside of this is the lingering convieniance that he's crusading based on his own ideology, and is he making an issue out of something because it befitts him?
Bill journalism can be summed up as the following: Sensational, scandalous, fun, unprofesional, personal, emotional, anecdotal, speculative, tabloid, genuine, serious, well ment and close-minded. The most important of those being Well-ment and fun. It too shouldnt be forgot that his show ultimatly is unprofesional tabloid journalism. Dont take him seriously, and dont trust his every word. Treat him as food for thought and something to sink your teeth into!
I first started to watch this show in 2000 and it really took off around 2002. At first he seem like a guy that was fair with people about the issues and the problems in the country. But now it seem like if you don't follow his moral, then it's okay for the government to take your rights away to make himself happy.
He is for The 10 commandments to been shown on courts when the first committee and the bill of rights does not let it. Gay marriage he is against when it does not effect straight marriage people. A lot stuff can be said about this show but it's not fair and balance because nothing can be fair and balance.
If you enough watching rich people debate on issues about the rest of the country then this is the show to watch for. But for me it's show that if you like a topic that they will talk about then tune to it when it comes on. But if there is no issues you would like them to talk then watch something else. It's just going to tick you off if your not a right winger.
Every weeknight I make sure not to miss the Factor. O'Reilly claims he is looking out for us, and he puts his money where his mouth is. When other shows are leading with political or celebrity news (Jackson verdict), O'Reilly leads with much more important stuff (Lunsford, Holloway cases.) When a guests appears on the show, Bill expects them to answer his questions without adding spin. If the guests starts dodging questions or give vague answers, Bill will ask them to answer the question again and repeated infractions will force Bill to get short tempered. A lot of left and right extremists call him mean and biased but if you watch it from a moderate perpective you will see he is watching out for the folks by cutting through the political crap. I hope his number one cable news ranking continues and proves the elite media needs to change.
This show is one of the worst political shows out there. Bill O'Reilly has a right wing agenda, and Faux News itself is owned by one of the most devious, elitist, right-wing man - Rupert Murdoch. Bill has lied on numerous occasions (check the transcript
This show is a sham and gives a black eye to actual journalism. Bill O'Reilly is like a lot of Republicans in office (I don't consider most of them Republicans) in that he only listens to things that back up his side and dismiss opposing facts. If you pay attention to his show, you will notice that he is always nicer to guests he agrees with and often cuts the time from those who oppose him. He is famous for always telling guests to shut up (guess you have to when you can't hold up your own positions like he often can't). He even told a family member of a 9/11 victim to shut up in a very mean way! How crude.
Bill often fires up the culture wars, often focusing more on, in my opinion the least important issues, and playing on people's emotions to turn them against Democrats and all liberals for that matter. For example Bill has said on numerous occasions that he strongly supports the environment and strong regulation on it, but where was his segments on how Bush had waged war on the environment by relaxing standards and other things that hurt the environment? He claims to fight for the working class but you never see segments about the growing gaps between the wealthy and poor and problems with our economy. Most of his shows focus on the worst situation possible in social issues and portraying them as what all liberals support. Obviously untrue, but it works apparently or else Bush wouldn't have as much support as he does.
I've been watching the "No Spin Zone" since its humble beginnings as the O'Reilly Report. Bill O'Reilly is a very talented host and commentator, even though he can be pretty abrasive at times. His show is very thought provoking and stimulating. It's certainly the most interesting news show out there, it easily outperforms Larry King and the other CNN and MSNBC riff-raff. The ratings further drive this point home; polls show the public to be captivated with the Humble Correspondent.
O'Reilly presses guests to tell the truth. If a guest starts to spin he'll yell at them. Some may find this attitude uncalled for, but I admire it. He doesn't allow kool-aide drinkers, may they be right or left wing, to spread their lies. He is truly looking out for the folks.
O'Reilly Factor makes you think and looks out for the people of America. He takes no No Spin right or left and wants people to tell the truth and to not lie and answer the question or he will stop you and ask again or move on to the next question.
And as for that 9/11 family member he was far left person that was making claims that Bush was liar and should be charged with war crimes when he didn't have any proof what so ever. So O'Reilly had evey right to tell the person to shut up and he went to break. The guy was saying mean things and guards had to kick him out of Fox News building.
This show is realy bad. It is just Bill Orielly pretending to look out for the people. His line is the spin zone, but spinning is all he seems to know. He verbally attacked a young guy on his show and made threats to him. And then the coward that he is talked about the guy the next day when the guy couldnt defend himself.
Bill Orielly talks about being such a good person but got in trouble for doing some bad things to a women that worked for him.
He is very right wing, but of course he denies it. Anyone with a different opinion he attacks and wont even let them get their point across. This show is just propaganda for the right wing conservatives.
Now let's get this straight, I'm not the news watching type, but when I was bored one day and I saw this show, I actually enjoyed watching the news. He delivers the news with this, In your face attitude and makes sure that you understand the story correctly. He also includes a segment where he reads emails that he recieves from people with questions or comments about him, or current events. That part is pretty cool because not many other newscasters do that. So now when you want to watch the news, make sure you turn onto the Fox News Channel (DirecTV channel 360) and watch The O'Reily Factor. Watching the news......will never be the same.
OMG, how I loathe this show. Fair and balanced my foot! The only reason why this show stays on the air is because it's on FOX News and Rupert Murdoch owns it. O'Reilly thinks he's the world's greatest newsman, but I mean come on he hosted "Inside Edition" for gosh sakes, does that make him an actual journalist? All he wants to do is argue with guests and read emails from people who don't like the job he is doing. If a man doesn't know the difference between a falafel and a loofah, he doesn't need to be telling the news, even if it is unfair and unbalanced.
When it comes to news shows, I don't tend to be all that interested whether I like them or not, however something must be said for the idiotic approach to the "news" represented in The O'Reilly Factor. I must first come clean with the fact that I have absolutely no respect for Bill O'Reilly as a news anchor or as a human being for that matter. A news show is not news unless it represents something in a way to either show more than one perspective or stays neutral in the matter. Bill O'Reilly's ego accounts for approximately 60% of the show, whereas the other 40% of the show is being a well paid whore for the right wing. How somebody like O'Reilly goes from being a reporter for a celebrity gossip show, to a "know-all" political commentator is beyond me. In final, The O'Reilly Factor is about as "Fair and Balanced" as a fight between a Marine and a dead chicken. It gets a 0.1 just for being aired.
Let me start off by saying I tend to be conservative in political views. That being said I enjoy watching this show during dinner to learn whats going on in the nation at this point and time. Granted Fox News and O'Reilly leaning towards the right on the political spectrum, this is still a good show to watch to find out the back story on many things happening in society. The show gives good coverage on what happens the world and has people who give the views on both sides of the issue. With this show rated as the highest political show on television which helps show how good The O'Rielly Factor is.
I think The O'Reilly factor is one of the best news shows around. Too many people say that it's biased towards conservatives, and for some Republicans, too liberal, but I think it's one of the few news programs that favors neither party.
It truly is, as its catch phrase suggest 'a no spin zone.'
I, personally, find it not only informative, but ammusing. Many people have said that O'Reilly is pompous and rude, but I have to say that he's neither. He says what he has to to get his point across, and he keeps people in their place.
I especially enjoy wehn he reads letters from viewers. That's truly the highlight of the show.
Too make a long story short, the people who don't like this program are the ones too closed minded to hear the other side of the argument.
Thank goodness for O'Reilly - it's the best new program around.
