O’Reilly’s Race Rant

April 9, 2008

Lately Bill O’Reilly, O’Reilly Factor’s host and Fox New’s night-time king, seems to be on an anti-Obama tear. He is constantly bringing up Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s comments and talking about a white backlash. E.g., his 04/07/08 show led with this purported white backlash. In his interview with Geraldine Ferraro on that program, he treated her with kid gloves and did not ask her if her Obama comment were a part of the Clinton campaign that seems to be making race an issue. Later, when he questioned the Chicago Tribune’s syndicated columnist Clarence Page, an African-American, thrice, he asked, “Do you feel sorry for her (Ferraro)?” O’Reilly and his fellow FNC star and co-host of the Hannity & Colmes, Sean Hannity, seem to be working in tandem to torpedo Barack Obama’s candidacy in the primary season, and, if that fails, in the general election. Clintonian triangulaton may yet be at work.
