Bill O’Reilly on Obama’s Coverage

March 4, 2008

Just a few moments ago Brit Hume was speaking with Bill O’Reilly about tonight’s primary contests.

O’Reilly mentioned that the New York Times, due to its McCain-affair assertions, has damaged its reputation and will continue to suffer financially. (I doubt that can be ascertained from these current events; they just may galvanize a like-minded support base).

He noted NBC’s affinity for Obama, while brining up the Saturday Night Live treatment as well. He cited a statistic: that Obama’s news coverage has been 83% positive. He seems to think that these things will lead to a Clinton resurgance.

He described NBC’s supposed favoritism as “corrupt.” He qualified that by stating that, if NBC is going to be supportive of Obama, they should come right out and say so.

The media, of course, doesn’t have a political angle. Doesn’t O’Reilly know that?
