The Buffoon Factor - Fairly Unbalanced

Media Matters - O'Reilly threatened radio show caller with "a little visit" from "Fox security" for mentioning Olbermann's name on the air:

Summary: On his nationally syndicated radio show, Bill O'Reilly threatened to turn over the personal information of a caller to 'Fox security' because the caller mentioned MSNBC's Keith Olbermann. As Media Matters has noted, in recent weeks, Olbermann has repeatedly awarded O'Reilly the 'Worst Person in the World' designation during his show, MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann. ..."

What's up with Mr. O'Reilly huh? Is he losing it? Did I hear him say or read somewhere that he was planning to retire?

The guy didn't say squat, only "Keith Olberman".

" The caller began by telling O'Reilly, "I like to listen to you during the day." Continuing, the caller stated, "I think Keith Olbermann's show," at which point O'Reilly disconnected the call, proclaiming: "Mike is -- he's a gone guy. You know, we have his -- we have your phone numbers, by the way. So, if you're listening, Mike, we have your phone number, and we're going to turn it over to Fox security, and you'll be getting a little visit. ..."

He didn't even say anything nasty like "O'Reilly, you bloviating, porcine bastard.", or "O'Reilly, you fairly unbalanced, preening buffoon."

Even if someone actually said this O'Reiily wouldn't have a case. He has a call-in radio show, he askes people to call him, his show has a delay, they could cut anything out if they want.

It's fun to see O'Reilly rip apart and shout down some terrorist sympathizer or paedophile-coddling judge. But when he pulls this whacko bully stuff, it's just sadly pathetic.

CALLING ALL Howard Stern phone pranksters! Don't you dare call and goof Bill O'Reilly's show! You'll get in real trouble.


Baba Buey to ya all!
