'O'Reilly Factor' Ambushes Gay Colorado House Speaker, Says He's 'Not Protecting Kids from Child Predators': VIDEO


Check out this ugly trolling by The O'Reilly Factor of openly gay Colorado House Speaker Mark Ferrandino. O'Reilly's Jesse Watters questions Ferrandino's opposition to "Jessica’s Law", which imposes excessive mandatory sentences for first-time offenders of child molesters.

Ferrandino explains that his opposition is because Colorado's laws "are tougher than Jessica's law" but O'Reilly's segment seems more interested in suggesting that Ferrandino is aiding and abetting child molesters, Think Progress reports. Following the ambush, O'Reilly also notes that Ferrandino is “a big gay marriage guy… big marijuana legalizer.”

  1. Next time I see Bill O'Reilly, I intend to smash his face to a pulp.

  2. @Francis,

    Intentional ploy to connect gay men to pedophilia? Yes it was. And I wish some gay 'advocates' wouldn't help them do this.


    If I joked about your relatives dying in the Nazi holocaust, would it make you angry? That's how I feel about Little Kiwi. I like jokes and sarcasm. Some things though are off limits. What do you think, David?

  3. for those wondering:

    i'm from colorado and this "ambush" happened not only to feradino but others. and is not being widely reported so that's good news.

    jessica's law is a mandatory 25 years while the state has already mandated life in prison for a number of the charges that would come under the law.

    also the republicans are crying foul that this died, when no one testified for it, and after having control of both houses and not trying to pass it then.

  4. The speaker of a state house of representatives should know how to handle the press and fend for himself, regardless of the line of the questioning. It's just part of the job description. He's hardly a victim of unfair journalism when that's how all negative press looks to pols. I would suggest he go on the O'Reilly show and set the record straight, so to speak, which will also embarrass the host. Or pick a more friendly show to go on. This is very simple stuff for a professional politician.

  5. This wasn't journalism at all, @ANON, fair or otherwise, it's propaganda. FOX is transparently targeting a gay rep, as they did in VT several years ago, to imply that because they aren't supporting a bad child protection law they must be sympathetic to child molestation, or child molestors themselves. They time the ambush to when there is also gay civil rights legislation, so that they can both smear the gay politician while trying to turn people against the gay rights legislation. Their tactic was called out in VT and now they're giving it a yet another spin, trying to give old propaganda new life. Notice how O'Reilly made sure to highlight that he is a "big gay marriage guy," as if that explains it all.

  6. "Ferrandino is “a big gay marriage guy… big marijuana legalizer.”

    And O'Reilly is a big ol' jerk.

  7. I don't know why O'Reilly keeps doing these. He and his producers always wind up looking stupid.

  10. Oh really DB, well if Faux news looks stupid, then why are you all pissed off?

  11. I don't understand why everyone got so pissed off about what O'Reily stated on his show... All he did was mention the top things that Ferrandino had as priorities in the local government. Jessica's Law wasn't one of them. As speaker of the House it wasn't one of his priorites, as was proved by O'Reilly. As for his being gay, what's the big deal, if he's openly gay, and proud of it, what's the problem? O'Reilly NEVER once stated that if you are openly gay you was automatically a pedophile. That is pure bull on the part of those who want to make something out of nothing.
