That’s not enough for O’Reilly

O’Reilly misrepresents Washington Post columns to bash NBC

cheap jordans good quality Bill O’Reilly was full of faux outrage last night 2/05/07 and used his Talking Points Memo to slam NBC News’ Military Analyst William Arkin for remarks he made in a Washington Post column January 30 (yes, 6 days ago a little late to the party, eh?) about the troops in Iraq. Although Arkin clarified his remarks in a later column February 1, O’Reilly cheap air jordan remained focused on a few offending phrases that enable his agenda of hammering all things NBC. cheap jordans good quality

The TPM, “Attacking the Military”, was a “stunning display of hatred” according to O’Reilly, who then took these salient comments out of the article to support this view:

“I’ve been mulling over cheap adidas an NBC Nightly News report from Iraq last Friday in which a number of soldiers expressed frustration with opposition to war cheap jordans from china in the United States.”

buy cheap jordans online “Through every Abu Ghraib and Haditha, through every rape and murder, the American public has indulged those in uniform, accepting that the incidents were the product of bad apples or even of some administration or command order.” buy cheap jordans online

cheap jordans under 50 dollars “So, we pay the soldiers a decent wage, take care of their families, provide them with cheap jordans sale housing and medical care and vast social support systems and ship obscene amenities into the war zone for them,., and their cheap air force attitude is that we should in addition roll over and play dead, defer to the military and the generals and let them fight their war,.” cheap jordans under 50 dollars

cheap real jordans for sale .”(this) NBC report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary oops sorry, volunteer force.” cheap real jordans for sale

cheap jordans sale From this edited selection O’Reilly misinterprets that Arkin is implying that Abu Ghraib and Haditha define how Americans have performed in Iraq, and “flat out calls our military ‘mercenaries’, that is people who fight solely for money with no patriotic intent at all.” cheap jordans sale

cheap jordans australia O’Reilly conveniently ignores the second column, which begins cheap jordans australia

best cheap jordans “I knew when I used the word “mercenary” in my Tuesday column that I was being highly inflammatory. best cheap jordans

cheap cheap jordans NBC News ran a piece in which enlisted soldiers in Iraq expressed frustration about waning American support. cheap cheap jordans

cheap jordan sites I intentionally chose to criticize the military and used the word to incite and call into question their presumption that the public had a duty to support them. The public has duties, but not to the American military. cheap jordan sites

So I committed blasphemy, and for this seeming lack of respect and appreciation for individuals in uniform, I have been roundly Cheap jordans criticized and cheap jordans online condemned.

cheap jordan store Mercenary, of course, is an insult and cheap yeezys pejorative, and it does not accurately describe the condition of the American soldier today. I sincerely apologize to anyone in the military who took my words literally. cheap jordan store

cheap air jordans.com Almost every day, we can hear or read someone in uniform saying that they are just doing a “job.” We don’t necessarily take this to literally mean that they are only in it for the work. cheap air jordans.com

Of course those who choose to wear the uniform do cheap jordans online so because they are patriots and because they feel compelled to take up arms cheap nike shoes to defend the nation. What we take from their self deprecating description that they are only doing their job is that they are not glory seeking, and that in order to make war and put themselves in the unnatural position of risking their lives and killing others, they have to focus on their profession, to do what they have been trained to do, to put aside the seeming inhumanity, to just “soldier on.”

FOX News pest Jesse Waters accosted Mr. Arkin in a parking lot (apparently with his kids right there) and couldn’t produce a business card so Arkin declined to talk to him. For this O’Reilly dubbed him “Mr. Army from 1974 1978) who wrote a book exposing some code names. According to a reviewer, in “Arkin has a specific goal. He believes the post 9/11 drive for secrecy has imperiled American security and democracy. Information is often classified, he writes, not because of the danger of passing information to those who would harm onlinestorenikefree the United States, but in order to close down public debate about controversial activities. The intelligence failures that allowed 9/11 to occur, Arkin writes, show that safety is better achieved when the national security establishment is subjected to oversight and scrutiny. military and intelligence apparatus.” (Alex Roslin)

cheap authentic jordans free shipping O’Reilly can’t understand why the Washington Post and NBC would hire this guy, and ties it to their cheap jordans shoes “recent sharp turn to the left.” (Arkin has worked for them since at least 1998.) He uses this clever segue to name the three head honchoes at NBC (Robert Wright, Jeff Zucker, and Steve Capus) and accuse them of making a business decision to veerleft. With their approval “certain elements” that shall not cheap Air max shoes be named are allowed to spew far left propaganda on a daily basis and make vicious personal attacks on people with whom they disagree. students of journalism know that this kind of garbage is unprecedented at the network level. cheap authentic jordans free shipping

cheap jordans for sale china Asked for a statement regarding Arkin, NBC replied that his comments appeared in The Washington Post and he does not speak on behalf of NBC. That’s not enough for O’Reilly, who snidely notes that they did not criticize his comments. O’Reilly said that NBC would say “let all voices be heard, freedom of speech, blah blah blah; what say you?” cheap jordans for sale china

Well, who cares what MM says? Not I. If all voices can’t be heard and we just want echos of our own views then why should I transcribe her (outraged, indignant, damning) remarks? I’m sure she has them posted at her aptly named hot air blog.

cheap jordans wholesale OK, just a little: she says anyone who gives Arkin a platform should let people know he’s an intellectual coward, a thug, and a radical left wing loon. He is also a regular contributor to Defense Daily. Air Force’s School of Advanced Airpower Studies. cheap jordans wholesale

But wait, there’s more! Mr. Military Online (1998, 2nd edition). Mr. Army from 1974 1978, and was an assistant to the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence of the US Commander Berlin. He was engaged in a number of covert intelligence collection projects and was the primary intelligence analyst for the West Berlin command.)

cheap authentic retro jordans websites He writes “tripe” that can be found in the “far left swamps” and has shown us just how “unhinged” some of these so called cheap jordans for sale mainstream journalists are. Not to cheap jordans free shipping be out hyperboled, O’Reilly says that they (the factor?) has uncovered the fraud perpetrated on viewers when Arkin is presented as cheap jordan sneakers an objective military analyst. His prior relationships with Greenpeace, NRDC, and Human Rights Watch prove he is a leftist, and his book his book might have gotten people killed. He is a military hater, said the TV announcer who taught high school (where he learned all about teenagers) rather than serve in Viet Nam. cheap authentic retro jordans websites

Malkin says that in defense of NBC, the item cheap jordans in china that set Arkin off was a show that aired military troops stating that anti war sentiments equaled, to them, non support of the troops. malking said such a show was the exception but offered no stats or analysis, just her impression. O’Reilly denied that and said there are good people at NBC it’s not a cabal, but management has made a decision to go to the left to pick up viewers. Sounds to me like he’s contradicting himself. He might even be admitting that NBC is balanced. His conclusion, though, is that” they’re selling out their country for ratings points.”

cheap jordans 2017 review I’m going to die of hypocrisy poisoning if this doesn’t stop. cheap jordans 2017 review

O’Reilly finally turned to former Democratic strategist and recently promoted FOX News Analyst Kirsten Powers, who jumped the proverbial shark this night, saying that she thought when she read the column she was looking at a “far left blog.” She and O’Reilly continued to nit pick the first column and ignore the second one, and then O’Reilly cut her off and went back to Malkin.
