The Endless Irony of Bill O’Reilly

The Endless Irony of Bill O’Reilly January 26, 2015

Bill O’Reilly is quite upset that people are criticizing the movie American Sniper because it’s “pro-military.” He doesn’t bother to engage any of the actual substantive criticisms of the movie, of course, he just calls those criticizing it “far-left kooks,” using his familiar argumentum ad labelum strategy. Hilariously, he used this graphic:

Yes, “the internet” is deceiving you, which is as stupid as saying your telephone is deceiving you. Both are merely means of communication. That graphic cracks me up because he accuses “the internet” of presenting people with “information that is false, libelous or distorted in the extreme.” You know, like Chris Kyle, the protagonist of American Sniper, who lost a huge lawsuit to Jesse Ventura because he went on TV and presented “information that is false, libelous or distorted in the extreme.” In other words, he lied. And to double or triple the irony, guess whose show he told that lie on? O’Reilly’s.

In fact, he seems to have a serious problem with lying, to the point of being pathological, like his claim to have gone to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, climbed on top of the Superdome with his sniper rifle and shot dozens of people who were looting. Funny, no one can seem to find any evidence for that ludicrous claim.
