An excerpt from “Bill O'Reilly:”
Once upon a time i really loved The O'Reilly issue. whereas I mainly disagreed with him, he was once a minimum of pleasing. in recent times, although, he has morphed into simply one other Bush mouthpiece. The grasp of the “No Spin region” is without warning spinning so tough he's within the Twilight region, dizzy in his personal deception. He even had the audacity on CNBC to signify that Fox is not a conservative information outlet. that is past spin. If it have been towards Hanukah i might imagine O'Reilly was once a dreidel.
My different challenge together with his express is that it really is unnaturally enthusiastic about homosexual concerns. extra homosexual humans look at the O'Reilly issue than on Showtime's Queer as folks. i do know that sounds unusual coming from a homosexual columnist who has two times seemed on his express. however it appears like he is had on each homosexual individual in the USA to take advantage of as his own political piñata. whilst even homosexual activists are uninterested in staring at homosexual segments, it is time to discover a new tradition struggle issue.
Bashing again is a useful compilation of Besen's most sensible columns from Planet Out, Gay.com, and the Washington Blade. it is an important source for longtime Besen readers and an interesting creation for newcomers.
