A Personal Letter to Bill O'Reilly

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.

Friday's Media Opinion #3 - Michael

BillO is scum. He's also a fraud, being one of the top of the elites, trying to pass himself off as an everyman. He's about as regular a guy as Joe is a plumber.

I am no fan of Billo, but I believe that his radio show had pretty good ratings. It is certainly wrong to say he lost his radio show. As far as I know no one said any one was dropping his show.

JollyRoger said...

The "good ratings" lie the wingtards tell must be tempered with a little bit of understanding.

In a lot of major media markets, corporate radio station owners will run Oxy-Moron, Slanthead (Hannity) or BillO whether or not they would do better to run Ed Schultz or Randi Rhodes.

Wingtard ideology often determines who will be on the air and NOT ratings, no matter what you may hear. Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio, both replaced popular liberal talkers-first with wingtard mouthpieces, and then with sports talk and/or music when the 'tard talkers fell flat.

With all due respect Sanford, I agree with JR. You are falling for their propaganda if you believe he wasn't cancelled. He had okay ratings in some markets, but not good enough to breakeven or make a profit. The owners were losing money. He wasn't willing to do what was necessary to make his show more successful (THANK GOD), and he wouldn't take a pay cut - they were paying him way too much. In the end he decided to let it fail. Any news to the contrary is just right wing spin. No matter what, it was HIS FAILURE! That makes me very HAPPY! MB

Bill O'Reilly Thursday formally confirmed he's giving up one of the most successful syndicated radio shows in the country, saying he has just run out of hours in the week.

O'Reilly said the radio show, which he launched in May 2002, will end "in the first quarter of next year." Most of the time he saves, he said, will go into his top-rated Fox News Channel show.

"The media business is getting more and more intense," O'Reilly said Thursday. "We've got to keep the TV show at the level we have it now, and that means more and more time to keep it competitive and fresh. I've been working 60, 65 hours a week and I just can't keep doing that."

Nationally, O'Reilly's radio show is carried on 430 stations, including WOR (710 AM) in New York. Talkers magazine estimates his weekly audience at more than 3.5 million, putting him in the national top 10, and while no official figures are available on advertising, executives close to the show described it as very profitable.

Anon - Your comment is nothing more than a copied press release straight from the FOX Corporate Communications Department. We allow propagandists to comment on this blog, but we don't necessarily believe them. You can can, of course, if you wish. It's a free country. MB
