• 5 Moments in Bill O’Reilly “Journalism”

    Earlier this week, Bill O’Reilly all but declared war on Daily Surge’s own Jason Mattera. “Cheap stuff” and “nasty,” he said while describing Mattera’s confrontation with Hillary Clinton. “Ambush journalism,” added Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum. But those attacks are all pretty vacuous when you consider what drives up ratings for The Factor. Over the years, Bill has made his fortune off of the same sorts of “stunts” and “ambushes” that apparently he now detests. And because we know how much Bill likes writing about the subject of history, Daily Surge decided to organize a brief history for him: 5 Moments In Bill O’Reilly “Journalism.”

    #5) That time Bill and Barney Frank screamed at each other. (October 2008)


    #4) Any one of the times The Factor interviews bikini-clad coeds on Spring Break for ratings. (Ongoing)

    #3) That time The Factor ambushed Obama’s illegal immigrant uncle in a liquor store. (February 2013)

    #2) That time Bill cursed, shoved an Obama staffer, and refused to apologize. (January 2008)

    …and the NUMBER ONE Moment in Bill O’Reilly “Journalism” is…Drumroll, please…

    Bill’s infamous freak-out meltdown on the set of “Inside Edition” (Early 1990’s)

    “Cheap stuff,” indeed!

    Fox has history in broadcasting that spans two decades. From his early days as an FM host and club DJ in the mid-90′s to his later experiences in political talk radio, he has always had a knack for combining topical news with his love for popular culture. Those experiences culminated in his position as executive producer for several radio shows featured in the TALKERS Heavy 100. Originally from New York, Fox has made the great pilgrimage down to sunny south Florida.
