Political Bullying

Big Blue Owl wrote:Stop The O'Reilly Harassment/bully Machine

Last Saturday, March 21, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly sent two of his
employees to stalk, ambush, and harass ThinkProgress.org Managing
Editor Amanda Terkel. Upset over a ThinkProgress report that noted
O'Reilly's insensitive comment towards a rape victim, O'Reilly dispatched
his producer Jesse Watters, along with a cameraman, to stake out
Amanda's home in Washington, DC, follow her for two hours across state
lines, and ambush her while she was on vacation in Winchester, VA.
O'Reilly then used a small portion of highly edited footage he obtained
from Watters's ambush interview to falsely claim that Amanda was
bringing "a lot of pain and suffering" to rape victims. Unfortunately,
Amanda is just one of roughly 40 different victims of these kind of
ambush tactics. Indeed, O'Reilly has hired producers whose primary job
is to track, harass, and intimidate anyone whom O'Reilly perceives as an
opponent or an enemy. That's not journalism -- that's a mafia-style
intimidation operation, and we need to put an end to it. ThinkProgress
has launched a campaign asking O'Reilly's major sponsors to issue a
clear statement opposing O'Reilly's Harassment Machine. Please consider
joining this campaign here -> http://thinkprogress.org/stop-oreilly-harassment/

OR!

Perhaps you want to join a movement that I just thought up.
100 Turds for Bill-O.

Does a Papa bear do it in the woods? Probably. So scoop it, box it up and
send it to Bill himself at;
Bill O'Reilly c/o
Fox News
1211 Avenue Of The Americas
New York, NY 10036

Or, send him a pic of your steaming contribution to oreilly@foxnews.com
Or call him and simply say, "Here's your turd!" at 1-888-369-4762.

You can make a smelly difference when it comes to bullies. All you need
is a scoop and a vision. :lol:
Create a web page of that hate, and your constituents' "movements" will
make you dirty-rotten-filthy-stinkin' rich. :wink:

Ever watch 60 minutes? Geraldo Rivera? 20/20? TMZ?

(keep this in mind too - thinkprogress.org attacked the family and O'Reilly
first.)

"Ambush" interviews have been done since TV journalism BEGAN.

That's because some folks absolutely loathe having to tell the truth.

I have to correct you Brah:

For the record, it was Terkel that made the insensitive remarks about the
rape victim, not O'Reilly. Thus, the whole purpose for the ambush
is apparent.

When you understand the gist of the entire issue, it was a straight up
cut-and-run by Terkel.


She (kind of) mumbled, while displaying the thousand-yard-stare through
those coke-bottle-bottomed lenses of hers.

I give her points (as does the far left) for using deceit; to try and appear
to be the "victim."

Watters had her by the short curlies, and she dummied up - stone cold
busted. Hammered and left to wilt in a ditch - by the simple truth.

That's what I saw, but you be the judge:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,510360,00.html


Here's a doozy:

Speaking of ambushes and bullies.....How about our "friends" at ACORN:

http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=31172

The above revelation pretty much sealed the fate of the New York Times,
and should prove - beyond a shadow of a doubt - how ACORN stacked
the election by bullyism and exploitation.

Don't get me wrong - I'm not saying Obama would have lost the election
because of it - but the odds were definitely manipulated in his favor.

But again - you be the judge.

(And BTW, don't hold your breath waiting for MSM to cover this one.)

I'm just the messenger, so you can love Mr. Bill and ACORN or hate them.

It's (still) a free country....right?


One final thought....Does it make me a bully to spread truth?

I'll take that chance - because our Forefathers did.

Much love and respect, my Brother.

Very dramatic, bro, but I posted that beautiful graphic in response to Bildo, one week before his bully boy accosted that poor little wretch, was on his show shouting (really shouting) about the paparazzi and their bullying techniques and how they should all be judged and jailed. So it is hypocrisy that I decry and leave all of the poetic, forthright orations to anyone who has the patience. Mine's all gone.

It is not true that Terkel and Think Progress insulted the victim. Here is the reason for Bildo's attack, the fact that they reported Bildo's foundation dedicated to her. Here is that exact post:
http://thinkprogress.org/2009/03/01/oreilly-rape-speak/

O?Reilly to speak at fundraising event for rape victims.

News Hounds points out that on March 19, Fox News host Bill O?Reilly is slated to speak at a fundraiser for the Alexa Foundation, a group committed to supporting rape survivors.

In the past, however, O?Reilly has made controversial comments about an 18-year-old woman, Jennifer Moore, who was raped and murdered, implying that it was partially her fault. O?Reilly called her ?moronic,? adding:

"Now Moore, Jennifer Moore, 18, on her way to college. She was 5-foot-2, 105 pounds, wearing a miniskirt and a halter top with a bare midriff. Now, again, there you go. So every predator in the world is gonna pick that up at two in the morning. She?s walking by herself on the West Side Highway, and she gets picked up by a thug. All right. Now she?s out of her mind, drunk."

So it is yet another case of hypocrisy that this entire story is really about. Bildo said those horrible things about this earlier rape/murder victim. I would wager that he started this "Alexa Foundation" in fear that someone would expose him for ripping on the rape/murder girl.
Bildo then sent that idiot after this woman who did nothing more than expose Bildo for being the hypocrite that he is. Not one discouraging word from her or her blog about the rape victim. Just truth.
One final thought....Does it make me a bully to spread truth?
Not at all...as long as it is the true truth.

"Bill O?Reilly was trying to show that he cares about women who have been victims of crime. So to make that point, he sends two men to find my home address and to follow me on vacation? I mean, it was incredibly disturbing. The rest of the weekend, I was constantly looking over my shoulder, wondering how long they had been following me, if they?re still following me."

I gotta be fair here...

I didn't know about the prior victim before the "bashing" (really?) Watters
gave Terkel, but to me it's quid pro quo.

They traded barbs, and I DO blame O'Reilly for not bringing up the prior
case, and for that - I digress. I can't answer for what he was thinking by
omitting the comments he made before Terkel shotgunned his benefit
appearance, but what's done is done. That doesn't seem right either.

Guess I'll start watching Reuters.

I don't think they have an agenda...do they? LOL

Somebody make me smart here...

Actually I'm really close, but I approach it by going way around the other side, giving the illusion of being far. If I spin around in a 180 - BAM! Stupid. :-D

Good read Elf!

"...a race-based group (colorofchange.org) is attacking someone
speaking out against racism (Glenn Beck). Who?s the racist here?"
