O'Reilly Back In The Hotseat For "Go To Israel" Remark

Media Matters for America reports,

Recalling the controversy surrounding his December 3, 2004, comment that a Jewish caller who objected to “Christmas going into schools” should “go to Israel” if he is “really offended,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly once again used his radio show to attack Media Matters for America and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) national director Abraham H. Foxman. On the August 23 broadcast of The Radio Factor, O’Reilly accused Media Matters, which first documented his December comments, of being “a left-wing website [that] couldn’t care less about, you know, Israel or the Christians, but … wanted to get me.” O’Reilly referred to the ADL, which had condemned O’Reilly’s “go to Israel” comment, as a “pressure group.” He then stated, “I know the evil that the pressure groups will resort to.” He added that Foxman “played right into them [Media Matters], you know, because he wanted publicity.”

Bill, shut up and eat your falafel.

  1. Mobius, the reich-wing in the US are never in the hot seat. No matter who they attack, and what they say, they always end up blaming the ‘radical left’ for its ‘hate’ campaigns (called ‘projection’ in psychoanalytic terms). As the ‘moderate’ media continues to be careful not to offend them with truth, they will keep on the warpath.
