More O'Reilly lies and Glenn Beck should be burned at the stake
God bless www.mediamatters.org for tracking the lies of the right wing media, but it would take an organization the size of the Pentagon to document them all.
This week O'Lielly was complaining that liberal bloggers just make things up.
Then, a beat later, he said that San Francisco tourism has been "pounded" because people were upset over a group of fake nuns, "the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence," taking communion from the local Archbishop.
Of course, he cited no evidence, no study, no facts on his "Factor" (or Factless) radio show.
And anyone who lives in the Bay Area knows that in a place that fills up for the Exotic Erotic Ball or the Gay Pride Parade, people aren't affected by something that has upset mostly conservative talk show hosts who always need a hot topic.
It's like his claims that he got gas prices lowered and shut down tourism to France...This guy is nothing but a blowhard.
Then there's Glenn Beck, who says now that he was joking when he celebrated the "America haters" who lost their homes in Southern California fires.
From Media Matters::
As Media Matters for America first documented, Beck said on his October 22 radio show: "I think there is a handful of people who hate America. Unfortunately for them, a lot of them are losing their homes in a forest fire today." Beck added, "There are a few people that hate America. But I don't think the Democrats are those. I think there are those posing as Democrats that are like that."
No mention of a ha-ha, that was in bad taste. I was kidding, as most people would do when they regret making a joke about people's misfortunes. This guy isn't even bright enough to realize that most of the areas in the fire are home to San Diego Republicans.
It's sad but these are the people dominating, and destroying, the media.
