Bill O'Reilly took a few minutes out from his vacation to tell viewers at Fox News that Bill DeBlasio's 'associations with provocateurs' warrant an immediate resignation.

O'Reilly didn't actually name any so-called provocateurs, but he applauded the childish move of police officers who turned their backs on DeBlasio at his press conference after the murders of their fellow officers. He also claimed DeBlasio had lost the confidence of police officers and is therefore ineffective as mayor of New York City.

I have a different view of their actions, given that police are public servants who are paid by the public and answer to civilians.

My question for Bill O'Reilly is simple: Will he also call for Sean Hannity's resignation for publicly promoting Cliven Bundy's causes, when a couple in attendance at the Bundy ranch standoff then shot two Las Vegas police officers dead?

No? And why not? If that's not associating with provocateurs, I'm not sure what is.

I've had it with Fox "news" and their opportunism. Between Guiliani, BillO and the lot of them over there at Murdoch's media whorehouse, there's enough hypocrisy and double standards to choke a nation, which is what they are doing, one lie at a time.

Can you help us out?
