...and this just in from Planet O'Reilly: Fox News has nothing to do with Fox Broadcasting. Also, iPods R Ev0l.
From the fine folks at Sweet Jesus, I Hate Bill O'Reilly, International (a thoroughly fair and balanced, nonpartisan site), a couple of entertaining tidbits. first, O'Reilly losing his shit--yeah, yeah, film at eleven--but, no, really, he actually said this:
Shamefully, the Fox Broadcasting Unit is set to carry the program, which is simply indefensible, and a low point in American culture. For the record, Fox Broadcasting has nothing to do with the Fox News Channel.
which, as SJIHBOR notes,
Yeah, um, except that you're owned by the same parent company, dingbat.
As in, Rupert Murdoch owns both; Roger Ailes, FNC chair, also chairs Fox Television Stations. oh yeah, and also, Harper Collins, the publishing company that was going to publish the (fair and balanced, tasteful) subjunctived claused OJ confessional, is, coincidentally, also owned by Rupert Murdoch. (nod to Radar).
Other than that, they have nothing to do with each other, though, no.
Of course, you understand, I'm just saying that because I'm one of those far left Internet loons.
The so-called elite media is tiptoeing around the fact that Simpson’s being paid millions to exploit the murders of his ex-wife and Ronald Goldman, murders he probably committed.
The New York Times covered the story in its business section. “CBS Evening News” didn’t even mention it for the first two days. But the tabloid press and cable news are fully engaged.
The far left loons are also out in force as their Internet masters urge them to tie the FOX News channel in with the Simpson situation. I’ve received scores of letters like this one from Fred in Indianapolis.
“Mr. O’Reilly, you are a man of principle. Since Fox News is sponsoring the Simpson program, will you sever your ties with Fox News?”
Obviously Fred is a bit slow. FOX News has nothing to do with the Simpson situation. And Fred doesn’t believe I am a man of principle either. He’s a Kool-Aid zombie doing the bidding of far left fanatics who will do anything to disparage me and FNC.
But oh well, water under the bridge; it's not going forward, the special. O'reilly is jubilant:
"It's a culture war victory. The folks did it, and I am the messenger."
Sadly, however, after all he's done for the world, no one wants him.
"I don't get invited to parties. Nobody wants me. When I do go, everyone is exceedingly polite to me.
Oh, well. On to more important matters: iPods are endangering America.
I don’t own an iPod. I would never wear an iPod… If this is your primary focus in life - the machines… it’s going to have a staggeringly negative effect, all of this, for America… did you ever talk to these computer geeks? I mean, can you carry on a conversation with them? …I really fear for the United States because, believe me, the jihadists? They’re not playing the video games. They’re killing real people over there.
