Bernie Goldberg To O’Reilly:
Both Liberals And Conservatives
Guilty For Politicizing CT Shooting

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/18/2012 10:05:18 AM

Bill O’Reilly brought on Bernard Goldberg tonight to take on the almost immediate politicization of last Friday’s tragic shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut. Both O’Reilly and Goldberg agreed that the liberal media was very quick to jumpstart the gun control debate, but Goldberg acknowledged there was a fair amount of politicization on the right from people who he said want assault weapons not because of the Second Amendment, but because of their paranoia over the government coming to take away their guns. (Snip) O’Reilly was amazed at how it “took minutes” for liberal pundits to direct

Goldberg´s criticism of conservatives was outrageous. What Huckabee said about taking God out of schools and society was absolutely correct. And his criticism of Rush (although not mentioned by name) who said you cannnot have a culture, a society where over a million babies are aborted every year and not have a dwindling respect for the sanctity of life. Goldberg was absolutely wrong. I don´t call that politicizing, I call those comments statement of facts.

O´Reilly, for his part, had no business putting a shell-shocked 9-year-old girl in front of Fox´s camera lens within hours of the event.

This tragedy was the worst reported that I have ever seen. All stations were disgusting in the way they handled this. I would expect this from the commi MSM, but was surprised how bad Fox has handled this also.

What SHOULD have been discussed on O´Reilly was this:

1. Why do liberals think we/they are entitled NOT to be harmed by evil? Are they special? If you think about it, this coincides with their "be nice to the terrorists and they won´t hurt us" beliefs. Or their belief that there is no such thing as evil.

2. Why do liberals and leftists want to emasculate America making us dependent/weak with no self defenses? TAKING OUR POWER AWAY IN EVERY WAY. And what about those who live in the concrete jungles of NYC and others? Have they lost their abilities to defend themselves and their families? I think they need to see the Jack Nicholson movie, "Wolf". And should cars and airplanes be regulated since they kill people?

3. Why are so many liberals quick to smear the entire country with the act of one mentally ill person?

4. And lastly, for O´Reilly: Did you not know about Lanza burning himself with a lighter?? Is this not true?

Not surprised that o´reilly was "amazed".

This simply reveals what seems to me to be his shallow approach to most subjects. This explains why he seems to have no firm moral core: he can vascillate easily from one side to the other.

Most events and trends in history are complex and irreducible to simple notions or solutions or diagnoses.

Why won´t people step back and take a breath? No-one has all the facts. "All" the facts may never be known. For one thing and most importantly we´ll never get into Lanza´s mind.

But look at his eyes: they´re the window to his soul ...perhaps. Vacant, wide, pleading, horror-struck.

The Dem/lefties do what they always do and that is to fan the flames of emotion, a lot of it irrational, and becoming tinged with anger and hostility.

We´d all better watch out. This community organizer, rabble-rouser, this POTUS who with incredible alacrity stirs up strife between races, ethnic groups, young and old, even playing the disgusting marxist "hate the rich" game, he is just fine with roiling emotions.

We don´t want to become what we despise.

The entire segment, Goldberg and Mr.O. was pure cow flop. The Facturd let Goldberg get away with saying everyone has taken advantage of the CT horror, not counting themselves, of course, but with no specifics. Pure cow flop.

Wrong, Goldberg. Another fool who talks about guns like he knows anything beyond the thousands of hours of media brainwashing on the subject. Try this for the ´truth,´ Bernie. If any gun is wrong, they are ALL wrong. You start with the supposition that a citizen with a clean record can´t be trusted with certain weapons that paranoid gun haters have suddenly decided are now too dangerous for any American to own. Except for people who they approve of, THOSE people can be armed with anything they want. We are either dangerous children or we are of equal standing with people like Feinstein and Schumer who carry whatever they want. Man up and get to the bottom line you poser.

The media and their reporting on mass shootings is 100% the cause for them all. Every one has to be worse tha the last in order to make the news. This last one even got the flag lowered to half mast, must be a hero to who ever ordered it lowered.

I watched the segnment. O´Really?´s monumental ignorance on the subject of guns was handily eclipsed by Bernie´s colossal ignorance. I´m still waiting for the Aurora"s report to confirm most of the killing was done by the shotgun, and I´m willing to bet the handguns were the culprit here.

Will somebody please drill it into O´Really?´s thick skull that semi-automatic means one bullet per trigger pull. Make him sit down and watch some reruns of Chuck Conners in The Rifleman TV series.

I haven´t watched any of this sickening coverage. The media went wall-to-wall with it, and did so regardless of whether they had accurate facts. I am sick of the wallowing in the grief and misery of the families. The media wonder how this happened, well, what is a future shooter to think when they see all this coverage over one sick person´s acts? Will they want this same fame?

Does it really matter what we here have to say about O´Reilly´s agenda when he has B. Goldberg as guest on a regularly scheduled basis? I don´t believe it is.

Carefully planned and taped for our "listening pleasure" is insulting and once again reminds us that we,the sheep,will bleat on schedule.

If FNC wanted the respect of the viewer,they would seek,somehow,to solicit opinions and Roger Ailes would/could address the mediocrity that that Channel has become.

Bernie has made the connection between the media´s bias and our ill informed public, but he hasn´t quite gotten to the part where he´s still ill informed and thinking with a leftist/collectivist mindset.

It´s been a while since he broke out with "Bias", so maybe the scales never will fall from his eyes. But we can always hope.

The FOX NEWS coverage has been just as bad as the other networks. Insinuations, gossip as the bass for whole segments. Gee, don´t let facts get in the way. The preachiness of most of the top anchors has been nauseating. Why grieving parents give ANY media ANYTHING is completely beyond me. Bernie and Bill were both disgusting in this segment. Bernie loves bashing conservatives.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
