Fox's Bill O'Reilly actually had the unmitigated gall to complain about the rest of the media being corrupt propaganda outlets during his Talking Points Memo this Tuesday evening. If O'Reilly really believes that there is a God, he must not be too terribly concerned about being punished for lying, because he deserved a lightening strike for this one.

From Fox's blog: O'Reilly: American Press Has Been Corrupted by Money, Internet, Ideology:

In tonight’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly charged the American press with being corrupted by money, the Internet and ideology.

He referenced CNN contributor Ruben Navarrette’s remarks yesterday that Univision, NBC, CBS and even CNN are biased against Republicans. Navarrette also charged Fox News with being right-leaning.

O’Reilly said that informed voters won’t be influenced by media coverage, but millions of uninformed Americans can be swayed by propaganda and misinformation.

“We call them Watters’ World voters,” he said.

O’Reilly predicted that most American media will line up in favor of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, but he pledged to confront election coverage “surgically,” not allowing contenders to bloviate on “The Factor.”

The core issues, he said, will be how to boost take-home pay for Americans, plus how to confront and defeat the jihad.

“In the end, there is a huge amount at stake in the upcoming election, so let the political games begin,” O’Reilly said.

We've got a problem with our corporate media alright, but it generally involves the lot of them emulating Faux "news" and not the other way around.
