Jessica Alba Schools Bill O'Reilly

 

When Jessica Alba told a Fox reporter that Bill O’Reilly was "kind of an a-hole", O’Reilly responded in kind and insulted Alba's intelligence, calling her a "pinhead" after she told a reporter "to be Sweden about it," implying neutrality.

O'Reilly assumed Alba meant to say Switzerland - the classic example of neutrality during World War II - which prompted the "pinhead" comment. Unfortunately for Bill and fortunately for Alba, Switzerland wasn't the only neutral country during WWII.

While Switzerland is the common example of neutrality during WWII, Sweden did indeed follow a policy of neutrality. Alba chastised those calling her dumb, saying "it's so sad to me that you think the only neutral country during WWII was Switzerland."

He is an A-Hole. I don't know a reporter that I do like though. They all suck.

classic. I knew sweden was neutral but that might be due to my friend forcing me to play war games... :D

The scandanavian countries history during WWII is very interesting.

In Bill's world he is. Though in Bill's world he is also a 'Hero to the People' because he captured Bin Laden single-handedly right after he wrestled Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the ground and forced him to say uncle.

  Bah  
 
This is one more proof-positive that Bill O'Lielly makes his crap up on the spot. He's a word prostitute. He says any and everything for money. That makes him a word whore and a topic whore. His stupid lemmings love him. That shows how stupid they are. He and Limbaugh are lying word whores.

  I use to...  
 
Find Bill O'reilly really entertaining when I was younger. I would watch his pointless interviews. Laugh at the attacks he made on others.

Then I got older and realized the harm he's doing, spouting that filth across television, for weak minds to absorb.

Then I got older and realized only Fox News devotees are being harmed.

Then I got older and realized Fox News supporters don't really matter.

geez someone hates someone with a different point of view, what did he do to you?

he made no americans confused, he has a tv show you moron, PEOPLE TUNE IN TO WATCH, no one is forced to watch his show, i know you wish people like limbaugh, hannity and so on could be arrested for treason(i could assume since you dont like oreilly you dont like others either) yadda yadda yadda but its just not going to happen..

infact limbaugh has had a good week, hes been mentioned by mouth by obama, his words taken out of context, whats the big problem? if limbaugh is such a crack pot and loony then why do the democrats bother? especially obama telling republicans not to listen to them,

this goes to vash and all

the funny thing is, is that you democrats see limbaugh, hannity and many others as a threat,you hate there wealth, you hate there popularity, you hate everything they stand for and cannot stand to see them succeed. thats why you (NOT ALL) are pushing for the replacment for the fairness doctrine to shut them up because you hate everything they stand for and then some.

i do not watch oreilly but if he wasnt popular or had good ratings he wouldnt even have a show so someone has to watch him, besides that know from watching him before everything he sells goes to charity.

I don't hate the popularity of Hannity, O'Reilly or Limbaugh. And their wealth isn't anything compared to a lot of other wealthy people.

I think what bugs me is that they can't keep their cool. I think their viewpoint could be expressed in a more professional manner. But therein lies the problem. Part of the "magic" of their shows is that they are very emotional. They wave their hands. Throw pens. Yell over their guests. This is very attractive television. You'll tune in even if you don't support the guy, and yet you're still raising his ratings. Supporting him in a very backwards way.

If Hannity didn't call people, "Idiot" on the air, and O'Reilly could keep his cool for more than 5 minutes, they would be decent shows. But that's just my point of view. Some people really like heated debate shows where the action is akin to that of a grade school playground. Alot of crap is talked, but nothing is said.

  not debates  
 
I don't think you could plausibly call any of those shows actual debates. They're one-sided diatribes that get ratings.

My concern with shows like O'Reilly's is that they emphasize unchecked emotion and flying off the handle as favorable attributes to a conversation. If you want to always be right, belittle your guest and throw a temper tantrum.

I miss the days where civil and witty rejoinders were used to jab your opponent, not a Bic pen.

Just like ShortNews?

  Exactly  
 
Having a respectable point of view doesn't mean yelling or screaming over the other guy, especially when backed into a corner and losing in a debate. And either way we talk about him, good or bad, we can talk about Robert Mugabe, Pol Pot, Stalin and others in the same manner, they can be ignorant pricks who stomp their feet and throw hissy fits when things don't go their way.

He's popular because he says and does outrageous things. Plenty of times I've caught myself turning the show on just so I could disagree with the bigoted prick. I attribute his character to that of a 6 year old boy's.
 
  by: blac   01/29/2009 01:39 PM     
  @ C.O.G.  
 
Exactly! Only we don't get paid for it and we don't pretend we are professional reporters.

After all, how would we get out b*tchy kicks if ShortNews weren't here? Most of us can't really swear at next door neighbours whose beliefs we disagree with...

"He's popular because he says and does outrageous things."

Exactly. He evokes emotion. Whether or you agree, or get angry and find yourself disagreeing with your television. It's still magnetic.

Don't feel bad about watching though. You can always say you're just trying to know your enemy. Harhar.

  a-hole or not...  
 
She definitely meant Switzerland, it was just lucky for her that Sweden was also neutral. I don't appreciate her trying to act like she meant Sweden from the start.

  Schooling O'Reilly?  
 
Not hard to do.

http://www.youtube.com/...

Pretty much any time you but "Bill O'Reilly" into the youtube search, you'll see a great example of him looking like an idiot... Of course, if you watch FOX News you'll see that too, but youtube is like a "best of" episode.

  @captain  
 
Ain't it so?

Anytime you're a radical, you're bound to show up on Youtube in such a manner.

Lucky for O'Reilly, he gains the ratings of those ball-less conservatives that believe in him, as well as the sort that, while disagreeing, can't turn the channel.

But, hey, whatever. Entertainment is entertainment.

O'Reilly may indeed be an a-hole, but you are in fact a pin head.
