O'Reilly Continues The Fox Poutrage Over Being Mocked By President Obama

Poor Bill-O has some bruised fee fees after mean old President Obama went after his network during a speech at Northwestern University.

It seems the crew at Fox & Friends weren't the only ones terribly upset with mean old President Obama giving their network some long overdue criticism during a speech at Northwestern University this week.

Bill O'Reilly used the occasion to pile on as well and to pretend that his network has been "fair and balanced" with their coverage of President Obama. Apparently O'Reilly doesn't watch his own show and can't remember anything he ever said on the air, and never watches any of the rest of his network's coverage if he's actually delusional enough to believe that's true.

Here's more from Fox's blog on Bill-O's delusional carping about President Obama's speech this week: O’Reilly: Obama 'Can Gin Up His Base By Lobbing Verbal Grenades' at Fox:

Bill O’Reilly tonight took on President Barack Obama’s jab at Fox News during a speech at Northwestern University yesterday.

“While good affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News, it turns out it’s working pretty well in the real world,” Obama said.

While there’s no question that Obama is having a hard time governing, O’Reilly said most of the media is still on his side.

“Fox News has never been on the president’s side but that doesn’t mean we’ve been unfair with him. We cover the president with skepticism, and that’s what journalists and analysts should do with everyone in power,” he said.

Since Obama doesn’t get much media criticism, O'Reilly said Obama believes that Fox News is out of control.

“I understand why [Obama doesn't] like us, and I also understand that the president can gin up his base by lobbing a few verbal grenades our way.”
