Yes, he won't let a guest get away with reciting talking points or providing an irrelevent answer. He forces the guests to stay on point. If they try to take over he'll shut them off.

Lots of people complain about him but he pretty much spanks the competition on cable.

When I've seen him I've been surpised how much he does let the guests make their point. Then, of course, rips their point a new one ..

Fox News is the pop music of the news channels, of course it gets high ratings. Bill O'RLY is no different than the "bloggers and drive by media" that he's always crying about. Olberman says it best when he calls them "Fox Noise".

Well it's his show and if he wants to talk about it then more power to him. I've seen him give away his share of books so it doesn't sound like he's money hungry.

As for his tv and radio show i for one enjoy both. He's talked about A few topics that I to my knowledge haven't heard on any other talk or news programs. One that comes to mind was A vermont judge who gave some child molester 30 days in jail. That guy eventually got to serve more time but IMO were it not for O'Reilly constantly bringing it up on his tv and radio show that pervert might be walking the streets. If it was on any of the other news stations I didn't hear it.

As for his book I might buy it eventually but want to read Mark Levin's book first "Men in Black" then I might buy O'Reilly's next.

What i dont understand is he never even fact checked the president's sotu address.

But what he should do is get rid of his non news stories and stick to covering things that are actually for the public to know

Bill O'RLY doesn't cover "news", he covers "pop news" or news that he invents. The entire Fox News channel is a joke.

O'reilly doesn't have a news program. He has a news analysis program. He analysizes the news and with the exception of his "talking points memo" he has guests that have alternative views of the news being analyzed. Often 2 guests but sometimes someone (1 person) that disagrees with him. There is no pretense to unbiased reporting. He says openly what his opinion is and analyzes the news in that context. But he allows the alternative view to be heard

He doesn't cover "pop news" nor does he "invent news". He analyzes news in the current cycle or current events in the news cycle.

Bill is great. He's the only person on TV that's capable of pissing me off. He's as far right as Moore is to the left.

I can't listen to his radio show for more than a half hour because he pisses me off. I do, however, like his TV show.

What pisses me off is his intolerance of other views. He's right and anyone who doesn't agree is wrong. Hey Bill, there's no such thing as "War on Terror". It's just a feel good term to make soccer moms feel safe.

but he did not cover the sotu address for factual evidence isnt that analysis?
He has not spoken about the song jihasd by slayer but he has shown outrage over "gangsta rap" or whatever its called

Your effort to educate the Fox News Haters is a waste of time. They've already decided what they think and repeatedly spit it out every time Fox News is mentioned. In short, "Please don't feed the trolls".

I guess it sounds like i'm waiving the fox flag, i'm really not. I havn't watched o'reilly in months. When I watch news, i prefer fox. I think the real issue with the haters is that fox is successful. And, to their (fox news) credit, it is a money making enterprize and they have successfully created programming that wins. The haters act like it's some diversity program or something that has to be all touchy feely. They would probably be happier watching taxpayer funded Lehrer. If they don't like fox, they can always switch over and watch oberman whine about fox noise with his other 8 viewers.

so fox news is above being held accountable and ALL their info is correct without citing resources. Well at least the other news networks dont claim to be a god & know what is right for other people.
