Bill O'Reily 'Talking Points Commentary': 'The Far Left Running Wild: There are entire media operations that exist today solely to promote ideology. This is a bad situation that is getting worse.'
Bill O'Reilly in some other hissy fit about the liberal media.
Fox's professional victim Bill O'Reilly is horrified that “the far left machine”  (presumably including Daily Kos) caught him in a lie and is exposing that lie. On his show Wednesday, O'Reilly said flat out, "You heard anything on NBC about the drones? [...] They are protecting the president." That would be the drone story that NBC's Michael Isikoff broke.

But, O'Reilly says, his critics are missing his point, by which he means, well hell, who knows.

“Now, last night, I talked with Bob Beckel about the difference in analysis on the subject of waterboarding as compared to killing people with drones, a policy that President Obama embraces," he said. "I put forth that over at NBC News and other media places, they were hysterical over waterboarding, but muted over President Obama’s drone attacks, at least until yesterday,” he said. “Immediately, the far left machine cranked up! 'O’Reilly didn’t say that NBC News broke the drone memo story. He’s a deceiver!' True! I didn’t say NBC broke the memo story because we weren’t talking about that. Waterboarding versus drone strikes.”

“So once again, we have a propaganda campaign designed to make ignorant people on the left even more ignorant. Factor tip of the day: Don't deal with loons,” he added.

Well, one thing you can say for O'Reilly. He's an expert on ignorance. And a really crappy liar.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
