Bill O’Reilly: Liberal Media Reaction to Trump Raid ‘Preposterous’

The biggest example of hysterical reaction, according to O’Reilly, came from longtime ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson, who compared Trump to Al Capone.

During Monday afternoon’s episode of Bill O’Reilly’s No Spin News and Analysis, the former Fox News host called reaction from “liberal media” to the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate by the FBI as “preposterous”.

After playing a clip of MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross saying Americans wanted to see a “perp walk” of Donald Trump, O’Reilly replied “NBC? Comcast? Paying for this kind of vitriol every single day? I don’t know.”

He then played a portion of an interview with MSNBC former California Congresswoman Jane Harmon, where she speculated Trump could have sold or given valuable nuclear weapons information to Russia or Saudi Arabia.

“Well, she’s lost her mind,” said O’Reilly, after calling her a smart woman who had appeared on his show several times before. “In her view, she can go on national, or international, television and tell the public that a former president might be selling classified information to Russia, Saudi Arabia, whatever. That’s what that woman just said. That is so irresponsible, and stupid to boot, that it’s…I don’t even have the adjective. I’m not shocked anymore. This is the kind of garbage every single day that’s on American television. Every single day. But Jane Harmon? Really. Come on.”

The biggest example of hysterical reaction, according to O’Reilly, came from longtime ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson, who compared Trump to Al Capone. Capone, a noted Chicago gangster, was accused of ordering the murder of several rivals before ultimately going to prison for income tax evasion.

“I feel bad, because in his prime, Donaldson did some good reporting,” O’Reilly countered. “He was biased to the left, everybody knows that, but he was a hard working reporter who was at ABC when I was at ABC. Hey Sam, the IRS didn’t discover Al Capone did anything. It was a Treasury operation. You don’t know what you’re talking about. Obviously didn’t read “Killing The Mob” (a book O’Reilly authored).

“And to even surmise, that the Justice Department is gonna get Trump because maybe he did other things, on this, makes the Justice Department look stupid, Sam. Not cool. It makes them look corrupt. If Donald Trump did something, by removing classified documents he should not have? Legitimate. Let’s see what did he remove. What’s the charge? What did you find out, Merrick Garland? Let’s see it. But this kind of nonsense (media reaction)? Stupid. That’s the only word I have. Yet, there they are. National TV. And people go ‘ahh Al Capone. That’s right’. You would think the whole media industry is now a Saturday Night Live skit. That’s what it is.”

O’Reilly then pointed out sound byte from America First host Sebastian Gorka he considered unreasonable, as well. Gorka declared the former President has done nothing wrong, which O’Reilly noted Gorka can’t possibly know.

The changes at CNN continue as the network’s Senior Editor of Media, An Phung, announced on Wednesday via Twitter that she would leave her position. 

Phung has spent the last five and a half years on the media desk, working closely with reporter Oliver Darcy, managing editor Alex Koppelman, and former “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter. 

“I am sad to announce that I will be leaving CNN,” Phung tweeted. There isn’t enough room here to praise all the people who made it a great place to work. 

“And there are so many people to thank for helping me tell good and important stories about the threats against journalism and democracy.”

She didn’t reveal when her last day at CNN will be; however, Phung is “spending my remaining time at CNN expressing my gratitude to them.” During her time at the media desk, Phung has credited Darcy, Koppelman, and Stelter for making her a stronger editor. 

Phung didn’t disclose what’s next for her career and, for now, is reflecting on her time at CNN, considering having a background as a refugee. 

“For a kid born on a refugee boat, a prestigious job at CNN was never a given,” Phung tweeted. “Then to be able to work with some of the most brilliant journalists in the industry—this job has just exceeded my biggest and boldest childhood dreams. I am living proof of what is possible.”

In a release, the network said the new season will premiere with the first three 20-minute episodes dropping on September 30th, followed by a new offering debuting every Friday at 6 PM/ET throughout the fall.

“It has been nearly one year since we greenlit COPS and the reaction has been positively overwhelming,” said Jason Klarman, president of the streaming service.

FOX Nation will continue to offer a free, one-year subscription to all first responders, including police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and paramedics (EMS personnel).
 
“Our subscribers continue to flock to the series, and we’re excited to provide our engaged audience with more of the exclusive content they have come to rely on from FOX Nation,” added Klarman.

Last year, the Paramount Network canceled “COPS” following the murder of George Floyd. In reviving the series, Fox Nation has also picked up an additional 15 episodes from the 32nd season.

Cenk Uygur, the host of “The Young Turks,” is defending his decision to have radio host Dennis Prager on his Thursday show. 

When pressed about having Prager, Uygur stated that their program isn’t afraid to have an alternative view which is what the traditional media does in his eyes. 

“Because we’re not afraid of right-wingers and we don’t view media as an a**-kissing exercise, like traditional media does,” Uygur tweeted.

“If you think afterward we didn’t sufficiently challenge him, then rip us. But you assume we’re not going to challenge him because you’re used to soft media.”

The episode with Prager goes live at 6 p.m. ET on Thursday and Uygur didn’t reveal what they’ll discuss with the radio host, but he did state that the show “should be a dynamic conversation, to say the least!”

Whatever they discuss, there are plenty of ongoing situations in the country to debate, whether it’s the immigration issue with governors facing backlash for political stunts to the upcoming midterm elections that are right around the corner.
