O’Reilly’s subliminal message? During the O’Reilly Factor introductory previews,* a strange thing occurred. First, former Clinton advisor and ABC’s This Week host George Stephanopoulos was shown in color opining favorably about President Obama’s speech in a segment named “Critical Mass.” Offering her contrary view, conservative author and columnist appeared similarly in color but over a chyron entitled, “Conservative Commentary”: However, after she said, “I did expect Americans to turn against the socialist program of Obama,” the screen above the colored Factor banner turned ominously black and white and the camera zoomed in close as if to signal her scary essence.
Was O’Reilly sending a subtle signal to his more liberal viewers?
