O’Reilly Out of Line … Again (UPDATE)
One commenter on the earlier version of this post, see text below, suggested it wouldn’t do any good to contact FOX and protest O’Reilly’s out-of-line remarks. But I’m a big believer in the power of grassroots protest, and remember: This network cancelled the OJ debacle after public outcry. I’m not suggesting they’ll cancel O’Reilly, but maybe he’ll learn a little discretion, if enough people speak up.
Another commenter reported that Bill has already hedged his bets and said he’d be willing to apologize if “proven wrong.” Well, it’s innocent until proven guilty, Bill, not the other way around, and you don’t start questioning the victim without evidence, not the other way around. So maybe, if we use old-fashioned democracy and “vote” with our emails and calls, we might hasten an apology.
Here are three ways to make the contact, and I’ll share more as I find them. If others identify contacts for News Corp., Fox’s parent company, those might be helpful, as well — so please share!
The Crux of the Matter
I’m not going to even pretend to be moderate on this subject, brought to my attention by The Angry Independent. (I don’t believe anyone else at TMV has posted on this matter; if they have, I apologize for the duplication.)
If you weren’t already aware of this situation, you MUST click over and read the post at Mirror on America, plus watch the video to which TAI links.
And then … most importantly of all … I hope you’ll get as mad and disgusted as The Angry Independent and I … and flood FOX News, both the cable network and your local FOX affiliate, just to make a point … with emails and letters and calls and howls of protest.
