An excerpt from “Bill O'Reilly:”
Once upon a time i really loved The O'Reilly issue. whereas I mostly disagreed with him, he was once at the very least pleasing. in recent times, notwithstanding, he has morphed into simply one other Bush mouthpiece. The grasp of the “No Spin region” is without warning spinning so not easy he's within the Twilight sector, dizzy in his personal deception. He even had the audacity on CNBC to indicate that Fox is not a conservative information outlet. that is past spin. If it have been towards Hanukah i would imagine O'Reilly used to be a dreidel.
My different challenge together with his express is that it really is unnaturally passionate about homosexual matters. extra homosexual humans seem at the O'Reilly issue than on Showtime's Queer as people. i do know that sounds unusual coming from a homosexual columnist who has two times seemed on his convey. however it feels like he is had on each homosexual individual in the United States to exploit as his own political piñata. whilst even homosexual activists are uninterested in gazing homosexual segments, it is time to discover a new tradition struggle issue.
Bashing again is a useful compilation of Besen's top columns from Planet Out, Gay.com, and the Washington Blade. it truly is an important source for longtime Besen readers and an exciting advent for newcomers.
