Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Bill O’Reilly vowed he would take on teams like left-wing storefront Media Matters, who he has blamed for his departure at Fox News.
O’Reilly credited host Sean Hannity for preventing again and described teams like Media Matters as “totalitarians” and known as them “dangerous to the country.”
HANNITY: I need to ask you concerning the media. I haven’t noticed so establishment in America this is so corrupt, so bitterly ideological, so one sided that by no means discuss — you at all times mentioned the parents — I communicate concerning the forgotten women and men, those that got here from our background or worse.
HANNITY: They by no means discuss them. All they would like to do is damage this president 24/7, 365 conspiracy theories. I’m loving to pay attention what you take into accounts it.
O’REILLY: Not handiest do they would like to damage President Trump, however somebody who voted for him.
HANNITY: Anyone who helps him on air.
O’REILLY: Or offers him an even shot. It simply is going around the board.
Look, we’re dwelling in a time the place there are not more journalistic laws. And I will be able to again up that 50 other ways, however I’m now not going to bore everyone this night, however I will be able to at some point.
There aren’t any laws anymore. So, your main city newspapers aren’t newspapers. They’re left wing journals and so they coordinate. And the folks on the cable information displays on the opposite channels, they’re left wing most sensible to backside. If you put on a “Make America Great” hat into The New York Times the next day to come and you’re employed there, you’re now not going to be running there for much longer, all proper?
It’s very, very intense. Very intense. But what’s came about now’s giant cash has poured in to organizations like Media Matters. Do you realize they threatened you and me in the event that they did this phase this night? Media Matters threatened us.
HANNITY: They threatened me for simply having — permitting you to have a voice.
O’REILLY: Yes, simply to have the phase —
HANNITY: Just to have the phase.
O’REILLY: — we had been threatened, OK?
HANNITY: Yes, we had been.
O’REILLY: Because totalitarians need to wipe out any speech with which they disagree.
HANNITY: See, I name them liberal fascists, as a result of that’s what they’re.
O’REILLY: Yes, that’s a just right description.
HANNITY: The maximum tolerant other folks because it comes to speech, we shield Bill Maher. I hate Bill Maher.
HANNITY: I by no means in my lifestyles —
O’REILLY: You don’t know the true Bill.
HANNITY: Oh, you do. You’re pals with him. I will be able to’t stand him.
I’ve by no means mentioned that Kathy Griffin will have to be fired or any — I don’t say that — I don’t care what they are saying.
O’REILLY: And you don’t name for boycotts.
HANNITY: Turn the dial.
O’REILLY: There isn’t a proper win cabal that does that.
O’REILLY: I imply, the fitting can get hateful, everyone is aware of that. I imply, they are able to. But there isn’t a company that is going out and threatens other folks and boycotts sponsors.
Now, right here’s the insidious section. That’s dangerous sufficient, all proper? There are tens of millions of greenbacks at the back of that. And the ones people who find themselves doing it are being paid to do it. Big cash.
Wait, wait —
HANNITY: No, pass forward. Go forward.
O’REILLY: Sharyl Attkisson’s guide “Smear”, you’ve were given to learn it. This is a smart lady, a good reporter who used to paintings at CBS. The guide is “Smear”. It will report A to Z this giant cash and those other folks will do the rest.
HANNITY: Bill, each minute of on a daily basis — we now have Rush on later this week. Every outstanding conservative voice is recorded. They’re paid to document. They’re paid to transcribe. They’re paid to search for the only phrase, sentence, word that they are able to then use to assault both advertisers or others.
O’REILLY: Advertisers, that’s insidious.
HANNITY: And it really works. Let’s be truthful. It has labored up to now.
O’REILLY: Well, now, Hannity and I’ve mentioned this off-camera. And we’re going to struggle again. And you, I’ve to come up with all of the credit score on this planet. You fought again after they got here after you ultimate spring. I didn’t and I will have to have.
But anyway, that is so unhealthy to the rustic. People don’t know the way unhealthy it’s because most of the people aren’t engaged. They don’t listen. They simply pay attention issues.
And those propaganda other folks throw these things out as truth the place it lies around the board.
