COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN INVESTMENTWATCH

 

“Bill O’Reilly puts Megyn Kelly to shame in epic assault on former Fox host

over her interview with right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones”

 

Well, all three of these are pretty hateful people, so one of them calling another names is simply asinine, and calling what any of them says “epic” is more asinine still.

Bill O’Reilly is an intellectual pornographer, someone who only in America could pass for a thoughtful commentator. Vicious, prejudiced, and biased beyond telling – his job is to titillate while propagandizing, not inform.

Megyn Kelly is an American corporate press original, a life-size Barbie Doll with attitude and inflated journalistic pretensions, delivering pretty much the same old corporate blather in a fancy new wrapper.

And Alex Jones is a secular tent preacher, weeping and wailing and thumping his Bible for Jesus. He even does a Lindsey Graham imitation when the word “Israel” is mentioned.

But, in the end, no matter what kind of circus performers they all are, one has every right to interview another on air.

Or clearly should have, but in contemporary America every word which falls from anyone’s lips on air is twisted into something political and not judged simply as informative or uninformative.
