Media Matters - O'Reilly and a lynching party against Michelle Obama
Kelly Tilghman with the Golf Channel made a crack about the rest of the PGA Tour lynching Tiger Woods and she and Tiger are friends and yet she took a voluntary two week suspension for the insensitive comment. She did that after Tiger had already said he liked Kelly, that she was a friend and that it was "no big deal at all."
Now here comes O'Reilly (after Imus loses his radio show) and he makes about his 20th absolutely moronic comment in a year and the FAUX "News" Channel does what?
Nothing so far.
Let's don't let this one die down so quickly. He was chasing a quote taken out of context by the right wing media that had Michelle Obama erroneously saying something that was part of a longer statement.
What she said was this. "Hope is making a comeback and, let me tell you, for the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country, not just because Barack is doing well, but I think people are hungry for change."
Now, when you listen to the Radio Righties, the quote has suddenly been woefully shortened to become "for the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country.", That is plain old B.S.
Of course, they are playing this to the hilt - listen to what O'Reilly said about checking up on what she stood for.
Don't let these slingers of mud get away without getting a generous helping of mud thrown back at them. At FAUX, the Swiftboating had already begun however, this particular shortened quote needs to blow up in their face.
And O'Reilly needs a "Time-Out"! Let's suggest he gets a long one.
