Bill O’Reilly Happy To See Media Acknowledging Border Crisis

While O’Reilly praises the left-wing media in one segment, he surprisingly criticizes members of the Conservative media in another, specifically Candace Owens.

Published

Bill O’Reilly rarely has positive things to say about what he calls “the left wing media” but that changed on Tuesday.  In addressing the situation on the United States’ Southern border, O’Reilly says it is so bad that even left-wing media is starting to take notice.

“The liberal media supported Joe Biden’s presidential campaign 100 percent, but now because the border situation is dangerous to them and the progressive movement, they have started to take notice,” O’Reilly said on Tuesday night’s edition of No Spin News.

O’Reilly then plays a clip of Meet The Press, where commentator Chuck Todd calls the situation a “Crisis for the Biden administration with no easy way out.”

“Now I don’t have any use for Chuck Todd, but he just told you the truth,” O’Reilly said. “By doing so, Mr. Todd was roundly scorched on social media by the Progressive Left who doesn’t want you to know anything. The Biden administration will tell you it’s a challenge and that the border is closed to all but the most venerable young children. But that’s a lie. If the borders are closed, how come ICE is spending 87 million dollars of taxpayer money to put immigrants up in hotel rooms or to fly them all around the country? I’m just trying to be an honest broker of information here and tell you the facts.”

O’Reilly adds that since the Biden administration can’t spin the facts to the media in a positive way, they just ignore them and most media members are too lazy to call their hand on it, but that is starting to change.

“We are being deceived, but I honestly don’t think most Americans are buying it and even the left-wing media is starting to ask tough questions.”

While O’Reilly praises the left-wing media in one segment, he surprisingly criticizes members of the Conservative media in another, specifically Candace Owens.

“Recently President Biden fell down the steps of Air Force One and a lot of people were happy he fell down. That was wrong and it should never happen. I have no use for President Biden’s policies. I think they will and have hurt the country. But I don’t want him to be mocked. That’s just part of the meanness of the media in America.”

O’Reilly points to Owens, conservative host of the Candace Owens Show, and her March 19th tweet about President Biden having dementia to prove his point.

“That’s not necessary Ms. Owens,” O’Reilly said. “You don’t know that Joe Biden has dementia. You are not a doctor. To do that is, I don’t know, you fill in the blank. I’m at a loss for words. I will say that anybody who thinks the President falling is a good thing needs, to take a step back and take a look at yourself.”

NPR’s senior editor for its arts desk, Nina Gregory, will be leaving the position she’s held since 2006 to join the live audio app Clubhouse to become its head of news and media publishers. 

Gregory confirmed the news of her new venture on Twitter, stating, “I’ve got some news…” while quote tweeting the story from CNN. 

“This is the first job I applied for in 15 years outside of public radio. I never thought I would leave,” Gregory stated to CNN. “But [Clubhouse] aligns so much with not just our mission, but the audio nerd in me and in us.”

Although the announcement of her hiring came this week, Gregory joined Clubhouse precisely one year before Wednesday’s news. Furthermore, she stated that Clubhouse reminds her of NPR’s former call-in show “Talk of the Nation.”

“As an audio journalist, [Clubhouse] aligned with what I’ve always believed is the best medium for news. You don’t need to know how to read to be able to hear radio news. You don’t need to have an expensive subscription. You don’t need cable,” Gregory said. 

“The accessibility across not just geography, but socioeconomics and cultures has always driven me to the power of the medium.”

NY Post columnist Karol Markowicz slammed late-night host Jimmy Kimmel for comments that he made during his monologue Monday about Floridians who have died from COVID-19.

“Of the 54,000 Americans who died from COVID since the start of the summer, almost one of five — one in five of them died in Florida, which my God, all those orphaned ferrets, it’s a shame,” Kimmel said.

“Jimmy Kimmel is a terrible person but at least he’s also not at all funny,” Markowicz tweeted.

Markowicz’s tweet drew plenty of support. Other media personalities rebuked Kimmel’s scathing monologue.

“They hate you and want you dead,” the Media Research Center’s Dan Gainor wrote

“This is an interesting statistic. COVID deaths have proven to be much higher in states that voted for Trump,” Kimmel added.
