Video: Mary Katharine Ham explains porn sites to O’Reilly

posted at 9:42 pm on December 12, 2007 by Allahpundit

Not so much a train wreck this week as a car wreck. Literally: The first segment, on the awful Nikki Catsouras case, illustrates Bill’s recurring point about the Internet’s capacity for excess — something which no one, least of all MK, disputes, just as O’R himself doesn’t dispute that the Web is an extremely efficient information network. The Catsouras case brings those two facets together, which is why it’s a bit more interesting than the fare we’re accustomed to in these segments. Like the, um, naked news and Olsen twins bits that follow it. A little more emphasis in these weekly stints on how serious malefactors leverage the virtues of the Web would go a long way.

Exit question: Is there any adult male in America who doesn’t know how pay-access porn sites work? (Except me, of course.) Why, it’s like claiming you don’t know what “MILF” stands for.

MKH had a lot to say tonight, to bad O’Reilly didn’t let her speak. I only turn my volume on when I see something interesting like MKH. I’m tired of O’Reilly.

Oh, MKH, You look Marvelous!

abinitioadinfinitum on December 12, 2007 at 9:49 PM

Κατσούρας. Yet another Greek name in the news!

Tzetzes on December 12, 2007 at 9:50 PM

is BO having a midlife crisis? Lots’o sex talk with BO. I’m starting to think he’s been watchin too much Sex Talk with Sue Johansson

lorien1973 on December 12, 2007 at 9:50 PM

Geez. He is clearly on the far side of the techno generation gap. Don’t turn on the computer, grandpa, the devil will gitcha!

Bad Penny on December 12, 2007 at 9:51 PM

Oh, MKH, You look Marvelous!

abinitioadinfinitum on December 12, 2007 at 9:49 PM

Yeah, the Ham is super fine. And her hair’s been really nice lately.

Tzetzes on December 12, 2007 at 9:55 PM

Someone should clue O’Reilly in to the fact that as he excoriates all the porn and sex on the interwebs, he gives a lot of free advertising away.

For instance, I hadn’t heard of YouPorn until I saw it on the factor…not that I would ever visit a site like that. Really. I swear.

But seriously, the man should–as Bill himself might say–wise up.

Nessuno on December 12, 2007 at 9:55 PM

O’Reilly again, ‘How much does it cost?’ LOL ‘How do you pay for it?’ LOL

Come on Bill, just go ahead and plug the site while you are at it. They make money from people paying for it because they see advertisements like this one on your show.

And I love the Olsen Twins too. They can do whatever they want because they don’t hurt anyone. I think they are good girls.

ThackerAgency on December 12, 2007 at 10:00 PM

HAHA Nessuno, Jinx!

ThackerAgency on December 12, 2007 at 10:01 PM

YouPorn?!

Tzetzes on December 12, 2007 at 10:03 PM

What happened to Nikky Catsarous’ family is horrible. Beyond horrible. She was an 18 year old girl who died greusomely in an accident. People copied the pictures from the web and sent the pictures repugnant e-mails to her parents.

Could you imagine being called to identify your daughter’s courpse after a disaster of this magnitude, then getting e-mail from abominations revelling in her death and her parent’s agony?

Our society demonizes people who wear animal skins, but almost turn a blind eye to monsters who do the most hineous things to other people.

The problem with the internet is anonymity, which leads to no accountability.

Rode Werk on December 12, 2007 at 10:06 PM

And ya, I hope the Catsarous family bankrupts California. How utterly irresponsible of the police to allow those pictures be released to the public. They should also track down the e-mailers, and their hosts (hotMail, Yahoo) and bankrupt them also.

Rode Werk on December 12, 2007 at 10:11 PM

Rode Werk on December 12, 2007 at 10:06 PM

There are some really sick animals in this world!

abinitioadinfinitum on December 12, 2007 at 10:17 PM

Like Bill knows nothing about porn? SURE

Gatordoug on December 12, 2007 at 10:23 PM

I saw the pictures about 6-8 months ago and they are very graphic and disturbing. The sick jerk who put them out should be punished somehow. Sadly it will end up being innocent taxpayers.

roninacreage on December 12, 2007 at 10:24 PM

YouPorn

Truly an excellent site :P

lorien1973 on December 12, 2007 at 10:25 PM

Sorry; I really don’t buy the “oh I’m just shocked, shocked!” guardian of public decency act by O’Reilly.

see-dubya on December 12, 2007 at 10:36 PM

Thanks Allahpundit,I found out yesterday what
MLIF stood for,and I have no clue about pay
sites,why pay for the milk,when you can get
the cow free!hehe

canopfor on December 12, 2007 at 10:44 PM

I plead guilty to NOT knowing what MILF stood for or
how to pay access a porn site. But then again I only
found out about this blog stuff a few months back.

WoW ! I’m a real dullll dude. : )

Texyank on December 12, 2007 at 10:57 PM

does she enjoy doing this crap?

jummy on December 12, 2007 at 10:58 PM

I wish PETA would take their zest and zeal for fur
and apply it to the WOT.
I love that line MKH says”The internet did not create
the sex drive of the male”.
That question needs to be answered by Goracle,when he’s
not saving the planet,after all he invented the internet!
And yes,there has to be one American male somewhere that
doesn,t know how to use the pay site,so I nominate
Mr.Rogers!

canopfor on December 12, 2007 at 11:05 PM

I think Bill needs a vacation…

d1carter on December 12, 2007 at 11:28 PM

PETA is an organization founded on hatred. People who get caught up in their political/activist movement always display hatred towards others who don’t think like they do.

Rode Werk on December 12, 2007 at 11:29 PM

MKH is such a rock star, and she don’t even know it yet! Hang in there girl.

Griz on December 12, 2007 at 11:37 PM

The naked news site made me laugh; Allah won’t even show us his face.

Canadian Infidel on December 13, 2007 at 1:10 AM

What’s funny is that BOR just picked up on Naked News, but it’s been around since 2000! Interestingly enough, it was free (ad supported) for the first couple of years. Heck, the newscast on Naked News is better than CNN!

C’mon Bill, get with IT!! You are showing your prudish, behind-the-times Internet ignorance. The Internet has become one of the last arenas of the (nearly) truly free exchange of ideas. If you don’t like the sewer, just don’t go there. There is a “back” button on your browser for a reason! If you’re scared of seeing something distasteful, you can even subscribe to an Internet nanny proxy service to play “mommy” for you.

MKH makes BOR look like a fool during these segments. I watch BOR regularly and agree with him on many topics, but his ignorant crusade against the Internet getting just ridiculous.

mojojojo on December 13, 2007 at 4:06 AM

Having to watch the lovely countenance of MKH intercut with shots of BOR is torture pr0n.

saint kansas on December 13, 2007 at 5:34 AM

1. Naked news? Old news. Like 5 years atleast.

2. Queue laura Ingraham about the b-roll indead. Bill O is talking about the decline of society while using it for his ratings.

3. With Bill Os logic we should close down libraries, the post office, pizza hut!

4. What Nessuno and Rode Werk said.

5. Does this man even own a computer?

PETA attacking the Olson Twins.

Haven’t they sold a few million videos?

Don’t they have an army of fans?

Could this backfire on PETA?

Please, please, please, please.

BOR = Dinosaur He really has gone down hill, body language,culture quiz, TV icon etc. Time for some new blood he really has become a bit of a joke. What is his obsession with porn on the net, maybe he should be discussing his own sex scandal. He used a phone for that maybe we can discuss the evils of the telephone.

pjf626 on December 13, 2007 at 9:13 AM

There is simply nothing new here. Tabloids have been doing the same thing for as long as there has been print. The naked news or some form of it was around on cable when I was in college or at least while I was in the army. None if this is new. “Policing the net?” Who polices the rest of the media?? How many lives has the MSM destroyed?? Yes,, bad things can happen,, but the net also allows the freedom of balance. Truth and lies can both just as easily be dispensed! There are a lot of evil people out there in the world who love to exploit and destroy for their own pleasure and/or personal gain. Unfortunately, most of them are in congress and that is why the net must remain free!

JellyToast on December 13, 2007 at 9:15 AM

I guess puff pieces are necessary-I hope MKH’s career doesn’t get shunted off into puff territory; I knows she’s got a lot more going for her than being O’Reilly’s foil.

Doug on December 13, 2007 at 10:08 AM

Allah: The answer to the adult male question is of course NO!!! LOL !!!! But we don’t have to know the answer any longer in light of red tube and you porn (not that I would ever surf to either of those site!).

Larraby on December 13, 2007 at 11:10 AM

Video not available?

TABoLK on December 13, 2007 at 12:52 PM

Did O’R grow up on Long Island or Gilligand’s Island?

I’m really hoping O’R is playing to an audience that is largely over 60 years-old, white, rural, middle income with a high school education and dial-up Internet access through AOL because the only other explanation is he’s a wealthy clueless frickin’ celeb whose so insulated from the real world that if he wasn’t rich he’d be the Unabomber v2.0…

And “vee two point oh” being the term that MKH will probably have to waste 50 seconds of her airtime explaining to him next Wednesday.

ScottMcC on December 13, 2007 at 1:08 PM

The Hammer just keeps getting hotter! Like a fine wine…

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on December 13, 2007 at 3:35 PM

OK Bill…everybody knows nothing arouses you.
We mortals get it.
