Jon Stewart Points Out The Preposterous Debate Over Bill O'Reilly's 'Zones of Embellishment' - VIDEO

Stewart

In the wake of the scandal surrounding Brian Williams' 'misremembering' an attack on a convoy he was traveling with during the Iraq War, media scrutiny has been re-focused on FOX News' Bill O'Reilly and allegations that he may have embellished his own experience during the Falklands War in 1982. However, as Jon Stewart point outs in a segment on last night's The Daily Show, going after O'Reilly for embellishing the truth might be a bit redundant:

Really?! We're going after O'Reilly for exaggerating being in a war zone? I don't know if you watch his program...misrepresenting 'the zone' he is in is kind of his hook. "You're in the no spin zone" are the words he utters right before throwing it to some jackass who disproves global warming by wandering around Boston by pointing at snow...You're basically putting in a tremendous amount of work to say, "The Emperor has no clothes," when the emperor has spent, like, twenty years going, "Look at my dick, I'm naked."

Glenn Beck: Republicans Will Lose on Immigration, Just Like They Did on Gay Marriage: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-11-07 at 7.44.23 AM

In a discussion on post-election politics with Bill O'Reilly the other day, Glenn Beck (in a rare moment of semi-lucidity) said Republicans would be wise to not pursue impeachment hearings against President Obama over immigration policy.

Said Beck:

They are going to do to illegals what they did to the debate on gay marriage. On gay marriage they made it about marriage and gay people. Instead, the argument should have been "Does government have a role in anybody's marriage?" But what they did is they personalized it so people said "I know I guy like Bob, he's fine!" They're going to do the same thing with illegal immigration and the Republican will lose that battle. 

O'Reilly, as always, disagreed - saying the two issues were unrelated and that the Republicans would win the immigration debate regardless.

The Most Shocking Thing Bill O'Reilly Can Find at the SF Pride Parade are Drag Queens Who Love Bill O'Reilly: VIDEO

Oreilly

Bill O'Reilly sends his correspondent Jesse Watters to troll the San Francisco Pride parade. Watters tries to get Gavin Newsom to call 'traditional' marriage supporters bigots, suggests Mark Leno's pants are a bit tight, and tries to get a rise out of Nancy Pelosi while showcasing a few of the parade's more 'promiscuous' characters.

But Pride parades have really hit the mainstream, and the most scandalous item that Watters seems to come up with are a pair of drag queens who "love" Bill O'Reilly.

Bill O’Reilly: Gay Activists Using Threats and Intimidation to Win Marriage Battle - VIDEO

Oreilly

On Monday’s edition of The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly and his guest contributors discussed the controversial resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich over his $1000 donation to California’s anti-gay Proposition 8 campaign in 2008.

O’Reilly, for his part, thinks that the intimidation and fear tactics of gay activists have effectively silenced anyone with an opposing viewpoint on LGBT rights.

Said O’Reilly:

If you donate money to a traditional marriage cause, okay, we're going to hurt you. We're going to hurt you. We're going to find out where you live. We are going try to take your job. Maybe do vandalism to your home. [...]

Now there are threats and demonization. And that unfortunately, has put gay marriage over the top. That is the technique that turned the tide -- intimidation and harm. That's what won it.

Equality Matters responds:

While it's true that the names of donors to Proposition 8 are publicly available, there's no evidence of widespread intimidation or harassment by marriage equality supporters. The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), for example, has repeatedly tried and failed to demonstrate in court that supporters of Proposition 8 experienced serious "harm" from gay activists.

O'Reilly's latest diatribe contradicts his earlier declarations that supporters of marriage equality had won the battle of public opinion because of the strength of their arguments. In March of 2013, O'Reilly conceded that "the compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals," echoing his earlier statement that conservatives were losing the marriage debate because their case "wasn't strong enough."

Bill O'Reilly Demands Obama Explain How He's Unfair to Him: VIDEO

Oreilly

FOX News host Bill O'Reilly badgered an incredulous Obama demanding he explain if and how O'Reilly is unfair to him, in the second half of a their Super Bowl interview (the first half aired before the game).

"Do you think I'm unfair to you?

Absolutely. Of course you are, Bill. But I like you anyway.

Ok, but give me how I'm unfair. Give me how I'm unfair, come on, you can't make that accusation without telling me.

We just went through an interview in which you asked about health care not working, IRS, were we wholly corrupt, Benghazi. Right? So, the list of issues you talk about  — they’re defined by you guys in a certain way...

But if it's un — fair.  I wanna know if it's un—fair. Criticism is criticism. It's my job to give you a hard time. But if I'm unfair I wanna know.
