Daily Kos: O’Reilly’s Big Scoop

• Views: 785

Apparently Bill O’Reilly will be featuring the web’s premier “progressive” site, Daily “Screw Them” Kos tonight. Here’s what Daily Kos writer mcjoan has to say about it: Daily Kos: O’Reilly’s Big Scoop.

Bill O’Reilly has discovered that sometimes people say stupid things on the Internet. And he’s going to have a big story about it tonight, supposedly.

He’s decided to play David to what he imagines is a corporate Goliath, JetBlue, because they’re one of the sponsors of YearlyKos. This is undoubtedly happening on Murdoch’s orders: Markos led the way in getting the Democratic presidential candidates to boycott the Fox debate, and we’re going to be having a Democratic presidential candidates forum at YearlyKos.

So they ambushed JetBlue’s CEO outside of his apartment last week, demanding to know why he was sponsoring people who are mean. Meaning they cherrypicked the worst of the comments on Daily Kos, many which were probably from GOP trolls anyway, and found a couple of 9/11 conspiracy diaries and are trying to smear the whole of the lefty blogosphere with a handful of kooks who’ve been banned from the site for being, well, kooks. Speaking of which, I wonder how many more leads O’Reilly’s gotten on his big story of last week, the national threat of lesbian gangs?

This is a curious gambit by Fox. Do they really want to get into a corporate sponsor fight? Seems dangerous territory to tread for them. Because if they want to have that fight, we can have that fight.

Poppin’ the corn right now.

Here’s a little reminder, should you need one—an LGF search for The Protocols of the Daily Kos.

(Hat tip: Killgore.)

O’Reilly really doesn’t get blogs, does he?
