Why Would Bill O'Reilly Ever Try To Smear Jesse Jackson? I Mean...

Why would BillO try to smear Jesse, aren't they old friends? I think not. As he admits, The Factor has attacked looked at him repeatedly---including investigating his finances, I mean they were only holding him accountable like they do Bush and Cheney, weren't they?

Bill: ...but we are not out to hurt the man in personal ways.

Yea, investigating his finances is soooo impersonal. You see that separates Bill from the vicious media. We lie about Conservatives and Republicans, nut he's a really a fair guy when it comes to liberals and Democrats. Okie Dokie.

Rachel Maddow does a segment on Bill's presentation of the Jackson/Obama comment. The part where he says he won't speculate on Jesse's motivations, but then almost immediately he does just that. Flippity-floppity

I seem to remember a time when Jesse Jackson quizzed Bill about his Sylvia's restaurant statements.

"What concerns me is that fear and ignorance, you know, lead to hatred and leads to violence, obviously. ... And so, to underestimate the civility of blacks was insulting to many people.
