Video: O’Reilly airs lurid footage, laments Net’s power to air lurid footage

posted at 10:46 pm on April 2, 2008 by Allahpundit

This is why, in spite of everything — even l’affaire Rivera — I still have a soft spot for him. He pulled something similar a few weeks ago with the Girls Gone Wild video of Spitzer’s hooker, tut-tutting GGW while rolling the clip of her working her pelvis. Tonight we get two doses in five minutes, first the footage of Max Mosley’s S&M escapades and then, even worse, the private photos stolen by the poor Indiana woman’s boyfriend. Best line? Early on, where he’s talking about the difference between embarrassing material running in a small local tabloid versus going live on a big medium like the Internet, where it can just “blow up.” Um, Bill, how many people watch your show again?

How disingenuous and conniving, yet very funny. Bill must really think his viewers are stupid not to see through his hypocritical peep show escapades. And the peep show goes on!

bayam on April 2, 2008 at 10:57 PM

I’m glad MKH got the little bit in there about Fitna.

Connie on April 2, 2008 at 11:00 PM

The guy simply loves porn way too much.

freevillage on April 2, 2008 at 11:02 PM

I don’t buy O’Reilly’s “we gotta show it so people know what we’re talking about” schtick. My imagination works on “just words,” too.

Connie on April 2, 2008 at 11:02 PM

Sex sales. Bill sales. Factor sales sex. Inside Edition with Karl Rove.

This new media, Tele Vision, is gonna be hard to control…in the wrong hands, it could just blow up.

d1carter on April 2, 2008 at 11:04 PM

Remember guys, he’s just doing this to “fight the culture war”.

V15J on April 2, 2008 at 11:07 PM

My wife is mad at me for not responding correctly when my son, a freshman in college, was fined $150 dollars for smoking marijuana in his dorm with 6 cheerleaders. ” 6 cheerleaders? High Five ” was not what she expected.
5 hookers?

2Tru2Tru on April 2, 2008 at 11:07 PM

Look, I heard my friends talking about Girls Gone Wile just the other day. I had no idea what they were talking about. I was completely lost, had absolutely no frame of reference, and couldn’t take part in the discussion at all. Finally one of my friends looked GGW up on the internet to give me an idea of what they were talking about. Only then, accompanied by visual examples, could I follow along with my friends’ discussion. So Bill knows what he’s doing.

Alex K on April 2, 2008 at 11:07 PM

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thinks he is sexier than all of the Girls who Gone Wild.

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thinks that Fox News should change its name to “The O’Reilly News Channel.”

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thinks God is waiting his orders to start the Apocalypse.

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thinks he is sexier than Michelle Malkin.

Indy Conservative on April 2, 2008 at 11:12 PM

Fox and Mr. Bill have turning left for some time.

MKH looks radiant as always,and ya the internet can
be just as bad as area’s you should never go near.
Like smut areas on the city,there are smut areas
on the web! How enlightening!

canopfor on April 2, 2008 at 11:15 PM

Don’t watch Fox anymore. It’s not the same as it once
was. The tube stays on the discovery, A&E, or HGTV.
I do miss Brit Humme but that’s about all.

I get all I need from here, Michelle, Rush and Drudge,

Texyank on April 2, 2008 at 11:19 PM

Bill, you’re a tool. Let someone with intelligence and charisma*coughMichellecough* run the show already.

My collie says:

Yeah, but he still thinks he’s sexier.

You’re right. He is SO full of himself.

I love cheerleaders. Rock hard smokin young bodies. . . *drool*

A deliberate left turn? I thought that their rudder was stuck and that they were simply going around in circles.

Do not let your boyfriend near ya with a camera if you are naked.

MKH is bright and very easy on the eyes. She needs to find a classier gig than O’Reilly’s show.

Travis Bickle on April 2, 2008 at 11:29 PM

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he invented the 11th commandment:

Thou Shalt Worship Bill O’Reilly with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your being.

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thinks the Earth rotates around itself because he said so.

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thanks himself everyday for creating himself.

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thinks the Bible mentioned his second coming.

Bill O’Reilly is so full of himself, he thinks he is the First person of the Trinity: O’Reilly, Son and Holy Spirit.

Indy Conservative on April 2, 2008 at 11:30 PM

Come on folks, you’re aware of his manufactured outrage by now. It sells his books and raises his tv and radio ratings. Frankly the hottest thing on his show tonight was our own, lovely MKH. I could watch her for hours.

thedecider on April 2, 2008 at 11:30 PM

This is a Fox News thing, and not limited to Bill O’Reilly.

See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whYi8sCF5Pg

Ortzinator on April 2, 2008 at 11:51 PM

At the same time, he could just be a marketing genius striking a chord with folks who would find this stuff outrageous anyway – hence the reason they watch his show.

thedecider on April 2, 2008 at 11:51 PM

O’Reilly is garbage. Why is he still on the air?
Oh rightttt. Because he covers “stories” like this.

Dave Rywall on April 2, 2008 at 11:59 PM

I was surprised that he didn’t understand the concept of storing one’s digital pics in one’s pc.

He really wasn’t understanding what MKH was saying. He thinks that storing your pics on your pc means you will automatically be hacked.

Or he doesn’t know the difference between putting your pics on your personal computer and putting them on the internet and he was winging it.

AprilOrit on April 3, 2008 at 12:00 AM

I always think back to the Paris Hilton video where he just played it and played it, and then pontificated about how it shouldn’t be played, as it played.

Dave Rywall on April 2, 2008 at 11:59 PM

He’s on the air because people watch him, for one reason or another. Can’t fault an economic system just because sometimes it doesn’t work in your favor.

Or mine. He’s as irrelevant to me as Olberman. Only watch when something interesting swings my way via another source.

askheaves on April 3, 2008 at 12:06 AM

And we’re surprised by this HOW, exactly?

We all learned a few yrs ago that he was a pervert who likes to lure women into shower stalls with promises of loofa sponges.

Please. He’s an total idiot who uses his show to force moral people with good values to look at soft core porn every night at 8pm. I’m surprised he doesn’t have it all over his website as well.

He claims to be a moralist who’s cleaning up America in the culture war… he’s warrior all right, but for the other side. I would point out that the emporer has no clothes, but for him, it’s probably not a metaphor OR a criticism.

Quote of the month:
“Do not let your boyfried near you, with a camera if you’re naked.” — MKH. That quote seems a little educational. lol

Travis1 on April 3, 2008 at 12:11 AM

To be fair- I’m almost certain that Bill isn’t the executive producer of the show. The producer will decide what B roll plays during segments.

That, and I do think that it’s nearly impossible to talk about a subject without showing the viewers a glimpse or what’s being talked about.

In the end, you have to consider that the advertisers run television. They ultimately decide what goes on, what sells their products the best, what ratings levels they will stick with or ditch, etc.

I do find myself surprised at the level of near hatred for OReilly here at HA.

TheBlueSite on April 3, 2008 at 12:12 AM

He does this to anything or anyone he disagrees with.

Same way with that filthy video the teacher sent to her underage student. He played it constantly.

Meanwhile he skated away from his own Mackris problem while daring anyone who had the nerve to cover it.

MirCat on April 3, 2008 at 12:30 AM

Bill O was exposed on the net when he did his sexual harassment phone calls with the loofah on one of his employees. He is a joke they should replace him with Michelle. I hate the Olbertard but I find myself watching him kind of like a train wreck. Also I love watching Chrissy Matthews have a virtual orgasm, you know that feeling up his leg, when he covers Obamatard. Bottom line Bill is a dinosaur and needs to be replaced.

pjf626 on April 3, 2008 at 12:33 AM

come’on guys, he’s just frustrated. i don’t think he ever got his “mutha f**king iced tea”

It’s funny a few years ago he had some blonde porn star on, can’t remember her name, and he interviewed her and she gave him some videos. She was really bimboey looking.

it was Mary Carey i believe

RMC1618 on April 3, 2008 at 12:59 AM

Nonsense. That was in 2002 I think…it was Jenna Jameson who claimed Bill asked if she could send him a bunch of her DVDs while she was still on the set. He denied it. I have a feeling that he wouldn’t ask such a question to begin with (he’s gotta be worth half a billion dollars!)- I’ve got a feeling he has access to mail order, the net, or blockbuster. That, and why would he ask that in studio in front of a full crew, camera ops, teleprompter assitants, floor managers, etc??

Good to see that knee jerk reactions based on irrational hatred is present on both sides of the aisle.

TheBlueSite on April 3, 2008 at 1:03 AM

Another week, another dig at O’Reilly from the jowls of AP. *yawn*

I still enjoy Bill’s show; it’s highly entertaining. Thus why it is still the most watched news show of the past seven years.

Jockolantern on April 3, 2008 at 1:21 AM

You have to remember this is the April sweeps period. It establishes the audience ratings that last all summer until the October sweeps. A lot of titillating stuff goes on to hype the numbers. O’Reilly gets paid for good numbers.

Max Mosely is an imbecile.

Corky Boyd on April 3, 2008 at 1:23 AM

Need to find that Youtube video of.. who was it, Laura Ingrham? Asking if they were playing ‘dodgy’ videos while she was talking about dodgy videos.

That was hilarious.

RMC1618 on April 3, 2008 at 12:59 AM

Hate to say I know it, but I believe it was Jenna Jameson, or however it’s spelled. If I recall she later went on to make snide remarks about being on the show in the first place (because it’s Fox, and as we all know Fox is evil)

Reaps on April 3, 2008 at 2:06 AM

Bugler on April 3, 2008 at 3:18 AM

For all your O’Reilly haters here, the man’s opening monologue about the idiotic anti-American, anti-war films coming out of Hollywood was terrific. It’s amazing to look back just sixty years ago and see how patriotic Hollywood and its actors were… a far cry from the morons parading around over there today.

Does Bill provide the links to the porn sites, naked photos, etc on the pay side of his web site?

Laura Ingraham is really going to go off on Bill the next time they meet. I hope her FoxNews career doesn’t end because of it. We all know Bill is swingin’ the big hammer on FoxNews.

O’Reilly does the tabloid stuff because he knows millions of droolers in his audience feast on it. But his big fault is stepping on Dennis Miller’s punchlines.

steveegg on April 3, 2008 at 7:59 AM

God says.. “If YOU Love Me, YOU will Hate the World” I have yet known God to tell us something that isn’t the Truth. Read God’s Word.. Chapter by Chaper and Verse by Verse. If you believe that Abortion is Murder then speak about it, support those that have the courage to. Fox News has nothing to offer but the Grapevine..I think you can get the videos of that show on YOUtube. My life is much better without the “world” according to Fox News etc.

LibsREvilDoers on April 3, 2008 at 8:25 AM

Hey Bill, how about a segment on creepy tv hosts who harass underlings with phone sex calls then settle out of court but cluelessly continue to veer into related topics in a way that makes viewers either laugh out loud or feel like they need to take a shower (sans luffa)?

I’ll give you the last word.

moxie_neanderthal on April 3, 2008 at 8:54 AM

Another well to do person that has let suck ses over come them. It is obvious they have no idea how to handle a stressful job except to do anything that is soooo out of character that no one would believe what they are seeing or are hearing.

Unfortunately, BO just gives them a platform and some level of credibility.

You’d think he’d learn about the internet and computers.
sheesh.

bridgetown on April 3, 2008 at 9:44 AM

oh wait..that’s what he’s doing. He does know about the internet. He’s educating the ones who don’t.
Not a bad thing.

bridgetown on April 3, 2008 at 9:44 AM

With all the Bill O’Reilly hate posts here, I thought for a minute I was on ZsaZsa HuffingPuff’s website..I disagree with him about 25% of the time, but he’s got a right to his opinion, like I do to mine..It’s still a real show in comparison to Olbergoebbels over on MSNBC……Lighten up,please. I can understand the bitterness over the Malkin/Rivers thing, really I can. I think Jerry Rivers should have been banned by Fox for life for the spitting comment. He’s a major a-hole, and not even a real man. A misogynistic POS. I still like O’Reill’s show…Sorry….

Cheer leader should be on the mud wrestling team. I’d volunteer to held coach.

wepeople on April 3, 2008 at 11:10 AM

MKH has the most common sense advice:”Ladies, don’t let your boyfriends have cameras near bye when you are naked.” Somehow I can’t imagine Bill O saying that. I don’t strongly dislike Bill O, but he is grating-the only time I see him are on these Hot Air posts. This is just a guess, but I think that Debby Stabenow’s husband might be getting his 15 minutes of internet infamy today. Let’s hope there aren’t pictures.

Doug on April 3, 2008 at 11:13 AM

Um, Bill, how many people watch your show again?

One less than used to, that’s for sure. This is what happens when you try to make a serious journalist out of a tabloid hack.

O’Reilly has become an endless bore. His only redeeming value sis that Olbermann hates him.

Hey just 8 more months to go before we get to hear the great bloviator opine about the “War on Christmas” night after night.

Hilts on April 3, 2008 at 1:31 PM

The only time that O’Reilly is worth watching is when Dennis Miller and Bernie Goldberg are on. “Culture Quiz” is a total waste of time.

Hilts on April 3, 2008 at 1:33 PM

What was lurid about that clip? I’m not sure I saw all of it, but I didn’t see anything particularly shocking. I see more sexual content in commercials…
