People like to go on about Bill O'Reilly but he is far from the worst! Of course he is a far right wing hack who lies for money but at least he has some intelligence.

For me the biggest clown on Fox is Sean Hannity, he has me in stitches at times. The most brainless attack dog on the airwaves. Glenn Beck is without a doubt mentally unstable and always provides some good "infotainment".

Bill O'Reilly. We need an Irish Bill O'Reilly (except on guns, capital punishment, gay marriage, foreign policy and church-state moral issues). He says it as it is with respect to illegal immigration. The fact that America, one of the most multiracial countries on earth, can have a mature debate on immigration including freedom of speech for those who want tighter controls, is something we need in this country. I hold true to Voltaire's true liberalism when he said that 'I hate what you have to say but I defend your right to say it'. Voltaire had more liberalism in his little finger than self-proclaimed liberals in Ireland have in their entire body, where freedom of speech is concerned. A call for tighter immigration controls immediately swings the PC-thought police into action with bogus charges of 'racism'. The Irish people are sick of the PC-brigade lecturing them on how to think. Do not call yourself a liberal if you oppose freedom of speech in this area - because you are not one.

It's so ridiculous it's pure entertainment. When I had severe insomnia in the run-up to the Presidential Election The O'Reilly Factor helped me laugh to sleep. The conspiracy stories about Obama coupled with the constant spin free-zone claim was great for a laugh. If that didn't send me to sleep Hannity and Combs did the job after.

Billo is annoying. Hannity is a tit. I do like Glenn Beck though and Judge Napolitano. :D

Mature debate from Bill O'Reilly? Do we get a different Fox News in the U.S. than what is beamed overseas?:confused:

And if you like him on everything but guns, capital punishment, gay marriage, foreign policy and church-state moral issues...maybe it would be easier to find a new anchor-crush.

O'Reilly and Hannity are Irish. Claim them proudly as ours, I know I do....
I'm sticking with Stephen Colbert. He actually knows something about his heritage, unlike O'Whiney - which was demonstrated when Colbert tore him apart on his show.

Priceless.

Oh, and Colbert is way funnier and less scary.

Did you post that before? I remember O'Reilly's look of complete incomprehension when the name 'Con Colbert' was mentioned. He hadn't a clue...

Or the fact that he was mocking Colbert for having a "French" middle name like Tyrone!

Yeah, so good I posted it twice.

Yeah that was quite funny. The best Colbert interview is when he is on a show called "meet the press". I don't know if you've seen it but it's pure comic genius!

I don't get to see much of "Goebbels TV" so I probably don't know all the Orwellian liars on the payroll. O'Reilly is good sometimes for some foaming-at-the-mouth lunacy and Hannity is a world class ignorant boor. I can't put names to some of the other spewers of toxic right wing drivel because I can't physically watch this dross for long enough to get familiar with these psychos in suits.

No, its the same, but our inferiority complexs are fresher. We are just children in the early stages of the neo-con experiment. We will catch up, painful lessons are being learned as we speak.

Well if you mean actually favourite as opposed to most despised then Shepherd Smith is at least a bit embarrassed at some of the shenanigans that go on there:

How would you describe some Orwellian nightmare of mindless repeat lies and propaganda endlessly repeating a single dominant message on many levels, direct and subliminal??

Fox "News" is a pure propaganda tool and should be treated as such.

("Fox News" is an oxymoron)
