PopeWatch: O’Reilly

 

 

 

 

An interesting tidbit:

 

Embattled Fox News host Bill O’Reilly briefly met with Pope Francis at the Vatican on Wednesday, according to a New York Times report.

The report says O’Reilly, who was in a VIP section in St. Peter’s Square during the pontiff’s weekly general audience, shook hands with the religious leader as a Vatican newspaper photographer snapped a photo. 

The Times noted the “special section beside the stage holding the papal throne, where Mr. O’Reilly sat, is exclusive and entered only with special tickets distributed by the prefecture of the papal household, according to the Vatican press office.”

Tens of thousands of worshipers fill the square for the weekly event.

The Vatican had stated last week that no official audience with O’Reilly was scheduled.

Go here to read the rest.  O’Reilly of course was canned by Fox yesterday due to his history of attracting sexual abuse allegations.  Thus ended two decades of buffoonery masked as populism for “the folks”.  With his bombast and convoluted speech patterns, O’Reilly reminds PopeWatch a bit of the Pope. PopeWatch does not know how Western Civilization will survive without nightly debates by O’Reilly with the intellectual  heavy weights of the day:

Some day the Pope’s “show” will also be terminated.  If he retires PopeWatch would love to see the Pope Emeritus II and O’Reilly co-hosting a show for the “folks”.

  1. I suppose Bill was caught in the no spin zone just too long. Being all wet, he needed time to be hung out to dry.
    Another book on the horizon I’m certain.

    Pope Francis?

    All I’m asked to do for him is pray.
    So I pray.
    Conversion and clarity, for the final no spin zone is inevitable.

  2. O’Reilly was at his best 17 years ago during the Elian Gonzalez controversy… was that the last time a Democrat deported anyone? Funny how Clinton let the Mexicans stay in California.

    Dennis Miller was the only watchable segment of O’Reilly’s show in later years. Miller is from Pittsburgh. Early in his broadcasting career, he interviewed my best friend on Evening Magazine about his comic book collection. I lost track of how many times I helped him move those damned comic books. Manassas, Virginia to Plum Boro, Pennsylvania… that was as much fun as a root canal.
    Sorry for going off topic.

  3. In accordance with feminist/liberal “standards” for such behavior, O’R could be the Democrat POTUS candidate in 2020. It worked for William Jefferson Clinton.

    If it was not for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.

  4. Perhaps I am the only person here who likes Bill O’Reilly, for which I am certain to be condemned. Now I disagreed with him on some issues, and I thought he often unfairly interrupted others on his show who gave responses to his commentary. However, I do not for one minute believe these allegations of sexual misconduct. I may be deceived and if that is the case, then I shall promptly apologize. But I think that feminists simply couldn’t stand his style, being so effeminately delicate. So they conspired with trumped up changes of misconduct in an era where a person is guilty until proven innocent.

    Again, if I am wrong, then it won’t be the first time.

  5. Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus.

    I hope your right.
    Trumped up charges in this culture by feminist who resemble the compassion of Isis, abortion loving scallywags, and would love to take out a talking head O’Reilly. A prize to hang above their condom dispenser.

  6. Dunno. Some of the dirt he’s collected over the years is supposedly buttressed with recordings injurious to his reputation. The production values on Fox are designed to appeal to some set of demographics I’m not in, so I seldom watch any of their commentary programs (do they do any reporting at all?). Unlike Messrs. Trump and Cosby, his accusers have been women who were well acquainted with him.

  7. I haven’t seen O’Reilly in quite a while. I will say this for Bill O’Reilly and also Megyn Kelly, both of them were not afraid to defend the unborn on the air.

  8. I have no idea if the allegations of sexual harassment by FOX employees are true or not but, isn’t it strange that the other so-called news networks never seem to have any sexual harassment scandals? Or the NY Times with many homosexual employees? It’s like the priest scandals in the Roman Catholic church, everyone knows about that, but you never or rarely hear about molestation by ministers/priests of the Protestant denominations or non Christian religions. It goes on, but never seems to be front page.
