Bill O’Reilly’s Obscene Obsession.

To fully appreciate the content of the following transcript, you need to know that in recent weeks, TV anchor Keith Olbermann (on his show MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann) has repeatedly awarded Bill O'Reilly the "Worst Person in the World". O'Reilly (who is, if you don’t know, the famous right-wing populist host on FoxNews whose radio version of his TV Show, The O’Reilly Factor is simply called “The Radio Factor”) has responded on several occasions of course but this reaction beats everything else:

From the March 2 broadcast of Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly:

O'REILLY: Orlando, Florida, Mike, go.

CALLER: Hey Bill, I appreciate you taking my call.


CALLER: I like to listen to you during the day, I think Keith Olbermann's show --

[at which point O'Reilly disconnected the call]

O'REILLY: There ya go, Mike is -- he's a gone guy. You know, we have his -- we have your phone numbers, by the way. So, if you're listening, Mike, we have your phone number, and we're going to turn it over to Fox security, and you'll be getting a little visit.

HILL: Maybe Mike is from the mothership.

O'REILLY: No, Maybe Mike is going to get into big trouble, because we're not going to play around. When you call us, ladies and gentleman, just so you know, we do have your phone number, and if you say anything untoward, obscene, or anything like that, Fox security then will contact your local authorities, and you will be held accountable. Fair?

HILL: That's fair.

O'REILLY: So, just -- all you guys who do this kind of a thing, you know, I know some shock jocks. Whatever. You will be held accountable. Believe it.

We'll be right back.

The only thing that comes to mind is that, in another (darker) day and age, Bill O’Reilly would have been the perfect help for the KGB, the Gestapo or any Fascist regime for that matter! Ain’t we glad this is America… so far anyway!
