O'Reilly never came off as a conservative, pro bible, or pro gun anytime I saw or heard his show.
I've known that for years, what I get annoyed with is liberals saying that FNC is some powerful brainwashing machine.

Bill O on a good night gets 3 million viewers, and is the most to the left of the Fox solo hosts.

I'm trying to get our forum leftists to see that FOX is not this evil menace that they think it is. It's centrist, MSNBC really is that far left.

They report things, that's what news is. Bill is commentary on news, MSNBC and CNN have commentators as well.

Are they not news?

But, but, but it's part of the MSM. That makes it evil and unwatchable. Right?

I don't watch any of the three for that purpose. I don't know why anyone would.

Are you aware of the concept of "advocacy journalism" ?

I recall that when Bush was in office they always repeated that it was the main job of the "corporate media", again the reason why I see Brian Williams and broadcast friends as far more of a threat than MSDNC.

Was quite funny when "corporate media" came back when Olberdouche was canned by Comcast, only to have MSDNC more left wing than ever, even Sharpton has a show.

I'm not brainwashed by anyone and do talk back to the TV.

I think Hannity is farther left. O'Reilly, pretty fair and has both sides on for discussion. He's passionate about what he believes, I'll give him that.

From 4 to 8 PM, you really can't get more indepth news that's unbiased. Not that I ever hear all of it between commuting, dinner, etc. But at least they are reporting.

Why Charles Krauthammer is not president is beyond me.

Local news...good for weather only. CNN & MSNBC, it's all extremely biased, but worse, they don't report. You miss a lot of news

The ratings tell it all. I do like Gretchen, but rarely see her show.

I wouldn't call him ultra conservative. More independent. You can see when he and Jon Stewart are together that they obviously like and respect eachother. And he goes on Stewart's show and Stewart comes on his. Lots of laughs. No fireworks.

Krauthammer has a variety of views that aren't usually discussed, he's really a liberal except on foreign policy and spending.

Anyone who thinks that Bill O'Reilly is an ultraconservative, is probably an ultraliberal.

He's a centrist, dare I say center left like Bill Clinton.

Ever hear of the concept of "independent thinking", regardless of where one is receiving information?

Don't you think that citizens individually bear the largest portion of responsibility for being able to determine whether or not they are being duped?

Karl used to lash out at anyone who said he watched FoxNews. Karl used to say that Fox was part of the mainstream media menace. Now, Karl defends Fox News. Hmmmmmmmmm.

no........half the population can't make change for a dollar, or possess the ambition to work hard enough to earn a living on their own.

give me a break.

we have a large segment of the population that has the intelligence of a ice cream cone.

thinking is a rare occurrence in today's society, and not being held accountable for the stupidity the number 1 political battle of the Democratic Party.

No, the people are by and large too disinterested to know the difference between Benghazi and Ben Ghazi.

The vast majority lack the time and inclination to check everything, not to mention that what is known is limited to what the media chooses to cover. People also don't seem to think that allegedly unbiased CNN actually has a bias, among other outlets.
