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.

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.”

Audience engagement company Futuri has created a new program called POST. The platform allows its users to upload audio, add texts and images and turn the content into video. 

The platform is reportedly gaining popularity among television broadcasters following the release of a new version tailored to their needs. According to Inside Radio, more television companies look to capitalize on the growing audio medium to reach their audiences. 

“Today’s audiences don’t think of media brands only in terms of ‘TV’ or ‘radio’. Quality content, be it video or audio, is what gets consumers engaged,” said Futuri CEO Daniel Anstandig.

POST comes equipped with scheduling tools, video tools, and search engine optimization. In addition to ingesting and automatically editing a TV newscast’s audio feed, Futuri says the TV version of POST will also swap out the television commercials with programmatic ad markers.

“The way we’ve customized the POST podcasting systems for the unique needs of television broadcasters will help them quickly capture the audience and revenue growth opportunities that the explosive growth of audio has created,” added Anstandig.

The Washington Post has put an ultimatum to its staffers who are not showing up to the offices for the three days they require; they can either come back or face “disciplinary action.”

In an email sent throughout the company, Post chief human resources officer Wayne Connell called on staff to “comply now” with the newspaper’s work policy. 

After re-opening its offices on March 15, the publication demands that its staff be in the office “at least three days per week.” 

“If you haven’t complied with our 3/2 policy since our March return, or you haven’t complied consistently, we’d like to underscore the need to comply now,” the statement read, per Mediaite

“Beginning this Monday, June 27, please ensure that you are in the office at least three days per week, assuming you are not on approved days off such as vacation time, sick time, etc. Failure to comply with this policy may result in disciplinary action.”

Connell adds that the Post is being fair with its demands to have their staff come in three times a week, striking the right balance by allowing employees to work from home and having the office experience that a Zoom meeting can’t replicate.

“We believe this companywide policy strikes the right balance, allowing both in-office collaboration and greater levels of flexibility than before the pandemic, and it’s only fair that we enforce this policy consistently,” the statement concluded. 

“We continue to evaluate the effectiveness of the 3/2 model and reserve the right to make changes in the future. In the meantime, please do your part in helping us meet these expectations.”

Together, we will keep striving to tell compelling, provocative, and soulful stories—while doing everything we can to make sure they reach the folks who need to hear them,” Michelle Obama said.

The slate of Audible programs will reflect the companies’ shared task to convey meaningful and entertaining stories that promote diverse voices and backgrounds.

“We have long recognized President and Mrs. Obama’s historic capacity to captivate,” Don Katz, Audible’s Founder and Executive Chairman, stated. 

“We are thrilled to welcome two of the most profound voices of moral and intellectual leadership of our times into the Audible fold, and to be able to elevate President and Mrs. Obama’s singular ability to provide hope and uplifting guidance—needed now more than ever—through their voices.”
