Hello Bloggers - I would like to write a quick open letter to Bill O'Reilly. So, here I go.
Mr. O'Reilly, I would like to say THANK GOD that you lost that horrible radio show. It was an abomination! You were one of the worst liars on radio, and that's saying something!
I say this from the heart, and from all of us who consider you to be a sort of repulsive CANCER wedged within the American psyche. You're like some kind of horrible, outrageous splinter that's impossible to dislodge. You are nothing more than human debris, which should have been swept away years ago. You are a loudmouth, Republican tool we would all be better off without!
I realize that you will continue to pollute our airwaves, and will most likely continue to trash some minds - unfortunately some young minds - with those God-awful books of yours, but still I'm happy that you experienced one deserved failure.
You can spin it all you want. You can say that you just needed to focus on your TV show - and other parts of the empire - all you want, but YOU STILL FAILED! We can take some satisfaction in the fact that you will have a shorter reach. You have been cut down a bit. You are less potent. YOU ARE IN DECLINE!
As I've written on this blog before, you are nothing more than a grotesque bully who deserves to have the snot kicked out of him. Your specialties are lies and intimidation for the most part. You are the epitome of double standards, holding most people to measure in ways that you would never expect of your own disgusting modus. You create chaos. You are despicable.
I can only hope that this is only the beginning of a long, slow, ugly demise for you. There are many examples throughout history where horrible people got into positions of wealth and power. Remember, there are just as many examples of how they came crashing down. How they ultimately wound up miserable and lonely, shunned by decent people. Who knows, that might happen to you. We can only hope.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. Now let's work to fix the rest of the airwaves. I only hope that either Thom Hartmann, Stephanie Miller, Randi Rhodes, or Ron Reagan move in to take your place. Unfortunately, we all know that's too good to be true. Talk radio is a long way from being fair and balanced, but let's hope this is a beginning.
