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


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.

Bill O'Reilly: Marriage Equality Will Cause 'a Fundamental Dissolution of Marriage in This Country' — VIDEO


Marriage equality will cause "a fundamental dissolution of marriage in this country," FOX News host Bill O'Reilly argued on his show yesterday in a discussion of the recent Utah polygamy ruling in which a federal judge de-criminalizied a portion of Utah’s ban on polygamy.


In related news, Rick Santorum and NOM have been crowing about how the Utah ruling proves their "slippery slope" theories.

Tweeted Santorum: "Some times I hate it when what I predict comes true."

As has NOM's Brian Brown:

"This decision is the next step along the path blazed by same-sex marriage advocates who have convinced federal judges to transform the societal norm of marriage as the union of one man and one woman designed primarily for the benefit of any children produced of their union into an institution that recognizes intimate, romantic relationships between consenting adults," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "For years, we have warned of the importance of preserving the norms of marriage and its definition as the union of one man and one woman. Now we see the next step in the path of consequences for abandoning those norms. Left on its current course, in a few years marriage could be unrecognizable."

Brown explained that Friday's decision stops short of imposing state-sanctioned polygamous marriages because the plaintiffs in the case did not specifically seek such relief. However, Brown said that with this decision advocates for polygamist marriage tee up the issue for the US Supreme Court to find polygamists entitled to official state-recognition of their plural 'marriages' just like gay and lesbian couples have been able to do in several states that have redefined marriage. The polygamy decision relies in large part on the same legal rationale utilized to impose same-sex marriage.

"There's no doubt that the arguments for same-sex marriage were a template for this case," Brown said. "Once marriage is determined to be primarily about providing government recognition and benefits for loving, committed relationships, there is simply no principled way not to extend 'marriage' to everyone, no matter the nature of their relationship. People in polygamist, plural marriages are just a short step away now from winning official marriage rights. Adult incest practitioners will have similar claims, as will adult siblings and other close relations. Lost in this disastrous push to transform marriage into the satisfaction of adult sexual desires are the interests of children, and their right to the love of one mother and one father."

Bill O'Reilly Defends Megyn Kelly: 'Santa Was a White Person' — VIDEO


Bill O'Reilly has Megyn Kelly's back on Santa, and also wants a piece of this year's biggest 'War on Christmas' headline. Although it doesn't matter that Santa was a white person, O'Reilly insists, "she's right, Santa was a white person."

And it's a big deal, according to O'Reilly because it's just the latest attempt by liberals to kill the all-powerful Faux News.

Bill O'Reilly Blesses Extremist Anti-Gay Group for Helping Him Fight 'The War on Christmas': VIDEO


On last night's The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly warned that 'The War on Christmas' continues this year.

NapierDuring his segment, O'Reilly praised and blessed the extremist anti-gay organization Alliance Defending Freedom for helping him save the holiday, inviting its senior vice president Doug Napier on the show to talk about ADF's legal battles, Equality Matters reports:

What O'Reilly omitted from his praise of the ADF for "defending traditional rights" is that the group is "virulently anti-gay," as the Southern Poverty Law Center put it. ADF has fought against gay rights at every turn and linked homosexuality to pedophilia, even currently working internationally to criminalize homosexuality.

Fox News has a cozy relationship with the ADF -- the network's reports often lend preference to the ADF's discriminatory stances, and Fox figures have even solicited donations to the group.

Inclusive Locker Rooms are Like Hooters for Transgender Kids, Says Bill O'Reilly: VIDEO


FOX News host Bill O'Reilly followed up his commentary on a story about a middle school football coach who made the  decision to bring his players to a Hooters restaurant by accusing Alan Colmes of having a double standard in defending transgender students who want to use the appropriate locker room.

O'Reilly, suggesting that trans students use locker rooms to sexually spy on the opposite sex, says that the only difference between allowing a 'guy who thinks he's a girl' into a women's locker room is that Hooters has chicken wings."

O'Reilly Admits He Was Wrong About No GOP Speakers Being Invited To MLK Celebration: VIDEO


As the news station that is #1 in misinformation, Fox News being wrong about something is de riguer. What is less expected is when they admit to it. The other night, Bill O'Reilly claimed on his show in a discussion with James Carville that no GOP speakers had been invited to the celebration earlier this week of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech. However, prominent members of the Republican party had been invited to speak and attend, including John McCain, Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and former president George W. Bush, who all decllined, though Bush was admittedly still recovering from heart surgery. Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele even slammed his own party for providing no speakers for the event. 

Normally, Fox News just doubles down on any claims that they make, dismissing any and all evidence to the contrary. O'Reilly broke from this MO with a mea culpa on his show late Thursday, saying,

I said there were no Republican speakers invited. Wrong. It was wrong. Some Republicans were asked to speak, they declined, and that was a mistake. [...] Now, the mistake? Entirely on me. I simply assumed since all the speakers were Democrats, Republicans were excluded.

O'Reilly is the most reasonable voice on Fox News in the way that, as Jon Stewart once quipped, "Is like being the thinnest kid at fat camp." Still, an explicit admission of fault is something to be respected in and of itself, particularly from a station and personality that prefer to pretend that they are flawless.
