Know what the most revealing part of this whole scene was? The part where O’Reilly admits that he didn’t mean all Muslims, just extremists. He does it, of course, after Barbara calls him on it. Why isn’t anyone talking about that? It shows that BillO truly does know where he stands in the big picture. Barbara Walters is certainly not someone who BillO would want to cross. Not because he fears her – but because he’s on measly little Faux News and she’s a respected journalist who has been on ABC for the better part of the last 40 years. That said, the time for trying to respect “both sides” of an issue has clearly left the building.
While I understand why Ms. Walters took the high ground, I’m with Joy and Whoopi. We have to start reacting that way to these idiotic statements that BillO and his ilk make. We’re smart enough to know B.S. when we see, hear and smell it. If he isn’t willing to concede that his “Muslims killed us on 9/11” (geez, it’s hard to even write that) statement was not appropriate or accurate, then we must respond accordingly. Today, “accordingly” isn’t taking the high ground or being PC. Folks, BillO and his peeps are actually causing harm. For real. The time to be nice passed long ago. American lives are on the line. It’s time to start punching these bullies right in the mouth, literally and figuratively.
