Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Hillary clinton to appear on Oreilly factor tomorrow, Wednesday night.

Man, she is tough. You go girl

I am not a big fan of Fox, but Fox is more fair and balanced than MSNBC in covering Clinton.

Oreilly is 100% better than Keith Olberman and Chris Matthews.

Interesting to watch

Re: She's free to appear wherever

she'll clean his clock, maybe we should take bets on how bad she'll best him, while being sweet and nice.  She took care of KO, O'Reilly will be more difficult, but if anyone is up to the job, it's the girl candidate, candidate par excellence.

If he doesn't shut off her mike, she'll wipe the floor with him.  Agreed!

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

I'm going to enjoy watching this.  Hillary is no pushover - she is gonna make Bill'O work a little to get his talking points out.

Entertainment value = high

O'Reilly

will just cut her mike if she doesn't let him gets his points out, that is his MO, though Hillary will look very good coming out of it.

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Yep - No way she will take abuse from that obnoxious creep.  No doubt he's drooling over the "get" but unless they turn off her mic, any blood spilled will be his, not hers.

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Well, once you've opened your heart to Scaife, anything goes.

It's no better -- and really quite worse -- than Obama going on fox. Everytime you do so, it gives them credibility they don't deserve. Especially with Democratic Party politics.

I admire Hillary's ability to forgive and forget everyone who wronged her prior to February, 2008. My admire, I mean, cynically shake my head at watching the Gingerbread Democrats go swimming out into the river on the back of Foxy Loxy once again. Gosh, I wonder what'll happen mid-stream?

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

News value = Low

Oriely better than Matthews or Olberman..

Puh-Leeze.

Hillary is going to get eaten alive, not at the interview, but afterwards, when they edit and spin it.

Fox opinon will never give a democrat a fair shake.  And if you are not paying attention to this, you are willfully ignorant.

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Wait...weren't we just slamming Obama for appearing on Fox?

I'd like to see equal treatment, but I'm more likely going to enjoy the front page hypocrisy on this one.

Though, in my opinion, both are right to go on Fox.  To avoid that network is intentionally avoiding a large portion of the electorate, and at least some of them won't be happy with McCain.  If they want to be the President of ALL Americans, then going on Fox is a start.

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Brilliant Hill!! Obama's much hyped Fox interview was a total let down. Not only did he stupidly pander to Fox viewers by touting the superiority of some GOP ideas, he even stabbed his most ardent supporters in the back by distancing himself from the far left... Even Kos was disapointed, so that's saying a lot!

Hillary is going to go on there and kick some ass. She'll give the kind interview everyone HOPEd Obama would give.  She'll come in there prepared with a laundry list of great ideas - she'll be tough, no-nonsense, and she sure as hell won't let BillO push her around.

I can't WAIT! Hope Keith Obamaman is watching too...

"even Kos was disappointed"

As much as I love the Kos people, they're purist idealogues and not entirely practical.

Obama's interview on Fox was rock-solid.  The questions were tough but fair, and it was entirely reasonable, in the context, even for Wallace to bring up Wright.

The talking heads were quite disappointed that they got no meat to grind, but then got everything they could've hoped for, and more, with Wright.

O'Reilly is going to softball Clinton just like Greta Van Sustern did, because she's the new Great Hope of the Republican party.

Re: "even Kos was disappointed"

And fox spun it against Obama within 24 hours.

I'm sure, given how they are encouraging the chaos in the Democratic party... for some reason, sure don't know what... it'll go great for Hillary.

Should she become the nominee, surprisingly, the good will will dry up and Juanita Broderick and Kathleen Wiley will become special commentators with Karl Rove.

I wonder why that will be?

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

How is that Koolaide? Is it yoummy? Seriously, this will be just like he Obama interview, if you think O'reily is going to hit her hard you haven't scanned Faux recently, they're in tear Obama down mode, they wont touch Hillary it would ruin the awesome suprise they have planned if she actually pulls off the miracle.

I would like to see an Obama-O'Reily interview, just so I could see O'Reily afterward talking about how its a bit suprising that Obama didn't ask for any "Ice Tea MFer [not sure about the profanity policy on here]" as he seems to think Black people are prone to doing.

Good for her to take the fight into the lion's den

I hope that O'Reilly makes a fool of himself and tries to cut her mike, that would make me laugh.

Kudos to her, though something is nagging on me (like Billy K's NYT editorial).

by Student Guy 2008-04-29 08:39AM | 0 recs
Also

so in 2006 O'Reilly was better than KO.

O'Reilly still cheerleading for the war
KO calling out Rummy.

I don't think O'reilly>KO.

You might have a skewed view during silly season...

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

"Fair" meaning they seem to be promoting her. They know the only way McCain gets elected is if the Repub base is energized against Hillary. Oh, and they will be, big time. My Republican mother, sister and niece hate and fear her and would do anything to keep her out of the White House, so I'm very aware of how conservatives are thinking right about now. A vote for Hillary is a vote for McCain.

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

LOL. I am sure you can convince your mother, sister and niece that hatred is meaningless and actually share the compassionate side of Hillary with them. Yes you can:-).

During this election, many people have revisited their thoughts (read blind baseless hatred) about Hillary as they learned more about her.

by Sandeep 2008-04-29 09:12AM | 0 recs
Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Maybe.

But more likely, many Fox News viewers revisited their love for seeing Democrats eat their own, and are egging it on.

The Hillary supporters who fail to see Fox's agenda in all this, and instead feed it, really seem to defy B.F. Skinner's basic theories of how animals learn.

Ugh, christ... I hate to see her on Faux.... ugh.

And yet... I hope she reams that smug bastard. I'd really enjoy it. If she does a particularly good job of putting him in his place, I'll swallow my pride, borrow some money from my parents, and send her another $100. Then I'll email O'Reilly and tell him about it.

I doubt it will happen...

...and if it does happen, it will probably have been staged.

Fox is so desperate for Clinton to stay in the race at this point that I wouldn't put it past them to let Clinton make their poster boy out to look like a fool.

I'm sorry, but I don't trust Fox here.  Obama no doubt appealed to the last shreds of Chis Wallace's journalistic integrity to get a respectful interview, but I can't imagine that O'Reilly will do anything other than completely pander to her or prod her until she shames him, thereby becoming a hero to the Democrats who hate him.

Re: I doubt it will happen...

We'll see. But O'Reilly's been trying to get her on his show forever (Obama, too, probably). I can't imagine him pandering, but it'll be interesting to see what happens.

The disgusting thing is, I'm going to have to watch The Factor Wednesday night. Maybe I can call my dad and tell him to call me when Hillary comes on. That might save me the pain of watching the rest of it.

No, just Olbermann. I could still stand Matthews.

Gregory is a hack

David Gregory has survived too long in the Bush press corps to see any subject as anything other than spin.

Matthews is a mysogynist jackass who has been anti-Clinton all along... until mysteriously when she's for all intents and purposes beaten, but still able to hurt Obama.

Keith was defending Clinton last night.  I'm surprised he'd do that if he hates her that much.

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Interesting perspective, of course O'Reily was one of the few hosts who had the courage to actually report the truth aobut Bill during the Clinton years.. er wait, I'm confused are these guys only telling the truith now becasue they tear down Obama or were they honest before when they called Bill Clinton a rapist?

Has O'Reilly ripped Bush and the war in Iraq? How about Dick Cheney? How about religious fundamentalism? How about blatant racism?

She'll have him eating out of her hand. And in my opinion, (Yes,I'm a strong Hillary supporter.)so could Sen. Obama. They are both charming - despite how we may think or feel about our opposing candidates. And unlike Dubya, our candidates are able to handle this kinda stuff.
Get 'em, Hill!

PS Remember when Chrissy Gephardt was on O'Reilly, advocating gay/lesbian rights? She won him over without pandering - I almost was embarrassed for all of BillO's gushing.

Remember folks

This is the guy who was very concerned over the pictures of Hanna Montana showing her bra.  So concerned that he flashed the pictures of a 14-year old girl in quasi-sexual contexts over and over again.

This is the guy that mentioned "lynching" and a black woman's name in the same sentence.

This is a guy who has been accused of multiple sexual harassment counts.

Going on FOX is one thing.  I'll even defend Clinton's shameless but not condemning interview on Van Sustern.  Chris Wallace still has a shred of Journalistic integrity and gave a very respectful interview to Obama.  But now Clinton is validating Bill O'Reilly, who is on par with Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh as a total sleazeball.  

Of course, Bill Clinton went on Rush's show right around the Ohio/Texas primaries, right around when Rush was advocating that Republicans interfere with the Democratic primary process by voting for Clinton (her total margin for victory in Texas was less than the number of Republicans that voted for her).  I suppose that I shouldn't be surprised.

One of two things will happen: Either O'Reilly will give a blisteringly polite and respectful interview, or they'll get into a staged disagreement and Clinton will come off looking like a hero.  It probably depends on whether Indiana has an open primary or not.

Re: Hillary on Oreilly Factor

Okay, since O'Reilly is a career misogynist, someone who makes money off pushing extremely anti-Woman views, and very clearly and unrepentantly sexually harrasses subordinates, shouldn't there be some kind of extra outrage by Clinton supports fond of calling Obama supporters misogynist?

I mean, isn't there some dissonance there? You can call Tweety anti-Woman, the guy's a tool. Olbermann is fair, you just disagree with him and take out your anger that way. But O'Reilly -- there's no defense for that loathesome, venial man.

No defense, I should say, prior to Hillary's tacit endorsement of him.

I'd prefer Wallace be equally ignored, Obama's decision was one of several bad ones lately.

Still, once she sat down with Scaife, a guy not deserving of an easy swerve-to-miss, I guess anything goes.

she is great

I love her. O'Reilly must be taken so aback, that Hillary, whom he has hated on for a decade, is gonna be on his show. He'll probably piss himself before the interview. She is smart, and knows the only reason people don't like her is because of irrational hate. She is reintroducing herself to the public, and if she is the nominee, I'd bet she has a net positive rating in favorability before the election. She is very likeable, and people will realize this. She schooled Chris Wallace a few months ago
