Geraldo Opens Up About His Pal Bill O’Reilly to Howard Stern: ‘The Guy Never Had a Good Date’

Geraldo Rivera has sympathy for his old pal Bill O’Reilly even after the former Fox News host’s ouster due to multiple sexual misconduct claims against him being settled. Appearing on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, Rivera said that he feels badly for O’Reilly because he was unloved. “The problem is the guy never had a good date,” Rivera said. “That’s his problem. He never had someone who really loved him. I assume that’s why he stumbled into these–” “Weird relationships,” Stern said, interjecting. “That ended up costing him tens of millions of dollars,” Rivera said. Geraldo noted that his feelings for O’Reilly stem from the fact that he remained loyal to Rivera during a low point in his career. Now, it seems, Rivera is returning the favor. “I feel sorry for the guy. And I have to remember that during my hard times where I faded from stardom, he Continue reading "Geraldo Opens Up About His Pal Bill O’Reilly to Howard Stern: ‘The Guy Never Had a Good Date’"

Bill O’Reilly Slams Stormy Daniels For Speaking Out After Accepting Trump Payoff: ‘Does That Help Your Daughter?’

Disgraced ex-anchor Bill O’Reilly took to Twitter to slam Stormy Daniels on Monday, after the airing of her 60 Minutes interview in which she dished on her alleged affair with President Donald Trump. Daniels, who claims she and Trump had an affair in 2006, was paid $130,000 weeks before the 2016 election to keep quiet about the dalliance. The former porn star is now suing the president to get out of the agreement, claiming the NDA is invalid. O’Reilly, the former Fox News anchor, wasn’t buying it. “So much for the porn performer on ’60 Minutes’ who’s story doesn’t stack,” he wrote. “She says she didn’t want money to attack Donald Trump but accepted money. She doesn’t want money now either. So why are you on national television with all this garbage? Does that help your daughter?”

Ben Shapiro Blasts HuffPost For Labeling Him a ‘Survivor Smearer’: ‘Disgusting’

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro went after HuffPost for a piece that grouped him with “survivor smearers” after last week’s Parkland shooting. The article, written by HuffPost politics reporter Igor Bobic, claimed that some conservatives were “trying to discredit” the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who have been actively speaking out in favor of gun control since 17 of their classmates and teachers were murdered. Bobic pulled an excerpt from a piece Shapiro wrote in The National Review:
“What, pray tell, did these students do to earn their claim to expertise? They were present during a mass shooting, and they have the right point of view, according to the Left. There’s a reason that producers at CNN are eager to put junior Cameron Kasky in front of the cameras: He says things like ‘You’re either with us or against us.’ It seems a stretch to think Continue reading "Ben Shapiro Blasts HuffPost For Labeling Him a ‘Survivor Smearer’: ‘Disgusting’"

O’Reilly Weighs in on LeBron-Ingraham Feud, Suggests NBA Player Read His Blog For ‘Cogent Commentary’

Bill O’Reilly finally weighed in on the ongoing feud between LeBron James and Fox News host Laura Ingraham, decrying the “anti-Laura Ingraham pile on” that followed her remarks about the NBA star. Ingraham called out LeBron on her primetime show this week — after the Cleveland Cavaliers player criticized President Donald Trump — demanding he “shut up and dribble.” That precipitated a predictable backlash, with James dismissing Ingraham and some even casting her comments as racist. O’Reilly defended the host at his former network, however, arguing in a tweet that criticizing LeBron’s “political punditry” is fair game:

Bill O’Reilly Blasts MSNBC: Joe & Mika Are Sellouts, O’Donnell is a ‘Smear Merchant…Guttersnipe’

Bill O’Reilly went on the war path against several MSNBC hosts during an interview today with New York radio program The Bernie and Sid Show. The former Fox News giant was asked which news media personality he thinks is “the worst” among liberal journalistic figures determined to bring down President Donald Trump. O’Reilly answered that Lawrence O’Donnell is at the “bottom of the barrel” — particularly because of his “un-American” kinds of slams against people in Trump-world.
“It’s not his political views I object to, its just that he’s a smear merchant, a guttersnipe, a nasty individual. He’s the worst.”
The discussion eventually moved towards Morning Joe, and O’Reilly argued that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are sellouts who would flip and become right wingers if MSNBC would pay them “a couple more million.” He also noted that the two hosts used to be friendly with Trump Continue reading "Bill O’Reilly Blasts MSNBC: Joe & Mika Are Sellouts, O’Donnell is a ‘Smear Merchant…Guttersnipe’"

Bill O’Reilly’s Triumphant Return to Cable News Absolutely Tanked in the Ratings

Former Fox News elder statesman Bill O’Reilly made his return to cable news on Tuesday night, to serve as an analyst for Newsmax TV’s coverage of President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union. And O’Reilly — who was long the undisputed king of primetime cable news ratings until he was jettisoned from Fox News — absolutely tanked in the ratings. Newsmax TV was founded by longtime Trump-pal Chris Ruddy in 2014, and is seen by many as an up-and-coming challenger to Fox News. But even with the former king of cable providing special analysis, the network’s SOTU coverage averaged a paltry 11,000 households, reaching a high of 17,000 households, according to Nielsen rating estimates seen by Mediaite. That, to put it bluntly, is basically a zero in cable news. Meanwhile, ratings for the big three cable news networks are expected to be in the millions. O’Reilly has made a few Continue reading "Bill O’Reilly’s Triumphant Return to Cable News Absolutely Tanked in the Ratings"

Two of Bill O’Reilly’s Sexual Harassment Accusers Suing Him, Fox News for Defamation

Two of Bill O’Reilly‘s sexual harassment accusers have come together to sue him and Fox News for slandering them as politically-motivated liars. New York Times reports that former Fox Newsers Rebecca Gomez Diamond and Andrea Macros have joined a defamation and breach of contract lawsuit filed by their colleague Rachel Witlieb Bernstein. The three women are challenging O’Reilly and the network over statements where they were depicted as “liars, political operatives and extortionists.” “They are tired of being smeared with lies by a bully who thinks that his victims are afraid to answer to them,” said Nancy Erika Smith, a legal representative for the three women. “They are standing up for the truth, joining the many voices of brave women who are no longer tolerating abuse or being silenced.” O’Reilly previously paid settlements to Diamond and Macros after they accused him of harassment earlier this year.
