The Morning News: Radio Wack-Job Threatens to Call the Cops, Just Like That Crazy Neighborhood Coot Who Chases Kids Away From His Front Yard
"Sweet Jesus, I Hate Bill O'Reilly" is by Joseph Minton Amann and Tom Breuer, who also have a Web site, SweetJesusIHateBillOReilly.com
Demonstrating an increasingly shaky familiarity with reality, the radio wack-job Bill O'Reilly threatened to send police to the home of a caller whose evident transgression was mentioning the name of O'Reilly critic Keith Olbermann.
"We have your phone number and we're going to turn it over to Fox Security and you're going to get a little visit," the delusional O'Reilly said after cutting off the caller. Fox Security, he warned listeners who might be considering phoning O'Reilly and saying something the great man doesn't want to hear, "will contact your local authorities."
Woooooo. Fox Security!
Anyway, the crazed segment mysteriously has disappeared from O'Reilly's Web site (Wooooooo ... Fox Security must have been on the job) -- but it can be seen in a segment on YouTube from Keith Olbermann's program. (The previous link went dark on a third-party site I liked to, but the above is the original one on YouTube that I should have linked to).
You gotta see it to believe it.
Let's see now. Don Imus is fired for a stupid albeit racist comment. But this incurable nitwit O'Reilly remains on the air after warning listeners that they will "get a little visit" at home by the cops if they say something "untoward." (That's a direct quote from O'Reilly). ... Oops, I guess I can expect a "little visit." In fact, one of O'Reilly's producers actually lives on my street. True fact! So there's nowhere to hide!
(By the way, I had an Irish great-uncle who physically resembles O'Reilly in family photos, and who was run over by a steam locomotive at a crossing in the Tioga neighborhood of Philadelphia in the early 1950s. Let's just note that, as the Irish say, Drink had been taken.)
But I digress. O'Reilly's strange outburst, incidentally, comes just a month after a TV critic for the Denver Post who wrote a review critical of O'Reilly claimed she was "stalked" by an O'Reilly producer after she declined an invitation to appear on the O'Reilly program to be smacked around by the guy with his finger always poised on the cutoff button.
