O'Reilly Talking Point Memo Tonight Slams NBC President Steve Capus (preview)
Among the many lies Keith Olbermann spoon-fed Howard Kurtz last weekend on CNN perhaps the biggest whopper was KO's denial that MSNBC was moving to the left to become the progressive's answer to the Fox News Channel. Anyone who has watched Countdown or Keith's "fair and balanced" coverage of this campaign season's political debate knows this is precisely what MSNBC under lefty loon Dan Abrams is doing.
Now NBC has teamed up with noted far-left propagandist Robert Greenwald, a failed Hollywood director whose recent "documentary" entitled "Outfoxed" was a shameless piece of tripe that would have made Leni Reifenstahl proud, to attack Bill O'Reilly over the cable news king's recent comments about John Edwards.
In the last Democratic Presidential debate before the New Hampshire primary, Senator Edwards made the absurd claim that 200,000 veterans had been made homeless by the "failed" U.S. economy and were sleeping "under bridges" and "on grates".
What you see happening in America today, if you're president of the United States and you're looking at this from altitude is you see a very few Americans getting wealthier and wealthier, you see the biggest corporations in America's profits through the roof -- ExxonMobil just made $40 billion, record profits -- all of that happening at the same time that we have 47 million people with no health care, 37 million who will wake up in this country tomorrow worried about feeding and clothing their children. Tonight, 200,000 men and women who wore the uniform of the United States of America and served this country honorably will go to sleep under bridges and on grates.
Tonight, in his Talking Point Memo, Bill O'Reilly will call out Greenwald and NBC both of whom have taken Edwards claim and conspired to manufacturer political propaganda masquerading as news:
An attack on fox news fails dismally.
[Robert Greenwald VO]
Take a good look at this man. He is Hollywood director Robert Greenwald ... a fanatical leftist who is obsessed with Fox News.
Greenwald directed the absurdly dishonest "Outfoxed" documentary.
A few days ago, Greenwald announced he would assemble some veterans to object to my telling John Edwards that the economy is not responsible for homeless vets. Addiction and mental illness is.
The reason Greenwald did this was to try to embarrass The Factor, and he has plenty of time on his hands to do that since it seems the man cannot get a job.
Why is that? ... perhaps because he presided over one of the biggest bombs in motion picture history ... the legendary "Xanadu" starring Olivia Newton-John --
Brilliant. Anyway, Greenwald called two corrupt entities in the press, the Rush & Molloy gossip column in the New York Daily News and NBC news, to try to get coverage of his vet exposition.
The problem was Greenwald couldn't get very many vets ... no more than six ... and we talked with them yesterday --

Now, I feel sorry for those guys, and we'll help them if we can, but I don't feel sorry for the corrupt press.
Rush & Molloy
Rush & Molloy ... notoriously dishonest ... printed a hatchet job about the situation today, and even sent one of their minions to observe what happened --

And then there's NBC news ... what a tragedy.
Steve Capus bio
This man, Steve Capus, runs that operation and has totally lost control of it. We called NBC and asked why they would send over a camera crew to cover an obviously propogandist situation. They told us Capus didn't know anything about it. Well maybe the man should wise up.
All in all, this is another example of Fox News Derangement Syndrome. NBC news hates us because we are costing them hundreds of millions of dollars. We are kicking their butt around the block.
The print press doesn't like us because many of them are far left loons. The beat goes on. It's usually tedious, but in this case ... mildly entertaining.
