From Jim Gilliam's blog archives
Bill O'Reilly is a "nasty, petty, egocentric, steaming pile of poo"

August 4, 2004 11:19 PM

I love using technorati to track what the various blogs are saying about the films. Here's a great example "from the ashes" of how Outfoxed is creeping into people's lives through underground screenings:

And finally, while we were traversing 14th street in search of unscrupulous wireless dealers we ran across a new bar/coffe shop that we had read about in The Post as being "dog-friendly." Places that tolerate and/or encourage you to bring a pooch put your feet up and set a spell. They had put a blackboard out that they planned to hold a screening of the infamous documentary "Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism" at 8pm. The Hellcat expressed an interest and I had heard bits and pieces of how this chronicles Fox News channel's hard shift to the right, all while maintaining and repeating their slogan of presenting "Fair and Balanced Reporting".

It was stunning and sickening to see the "talking heads" of the various Fox "news" reporters mindlessly regurgitating whatever buzzwords or phrases they had spoon-fed to them like so much pablum. And it confirms once and for all what I've always suspected. Bill O'Reilly is not only a loud mouthed buffoon looking to get rich by yelling the loudest and being the most outrageous. He is truly an evil, horrible Nazi. He's also drunk with the notion of his own perceived power. And while I still do believe in free speech, I would relish the opportunity to go on that show someday and expose him as the nasty, petty, egocentric, steaming pile of poo he really is. If you get the chance, see this work.

I would tell you the name of the bar we saw it at, but I'm not sure if they were allowed to show it there and I don't want to get anyone in trouble.
