The Mirror Has Two Faces

I don't like Bill O'Reilly.

I don't like people who say one thing and then switch it around.

We have a name for folks like that: Liar.

So, imagine my surprise to learn that Bill O'Reilly went off....again....about gay marriage, and how it would lead to polygamy and bestiality, and then i find out that way back in 2002, in an interview with gay publication The Advocate, Billy Boy said he couldn't care less about the issue of gay marriage.

Oh, at first, he gave the standard Repug response that he was opposed to marriage equality, but when push came to shove, Billy finally said:

"Look, I couldn't care less, to tell you the truth.... You want to get married? Knock yourself out. Go to Vegas. Have a good time. If you can get that changed, I'm not going to jump up and down and say I think it's wrong, because I don't."

And in this same interview, O'Reilly referred to anti-gay religious right activists as "fanatics" and "holy rollers" who were a bit "ridiculous." He even went on, get this, to express support for laws protecting gays in the workplace and more. Obviously, the religious right went wingnuts, and all of the sudden Say-One-Thing-Then-Say-The-Opposite Bill O'Reilly had an epiphany and turned all shades of anti-gay.

So who's the real Bill O'Reilly? I don't think even he knows.

We have other names for Bill-O, many other names. He's such a windbag that he can't keep up with what he says.

I think you're right, Bob--he can't remember what he's said in the past, and just goes whichever way the wind blows, or changes it up depending on who he's talking to. Bleah.

It amazes me that an ex-news announcer from inside edition becomes the moral authority on everything. When does Deborah Norville get a show?

What Bill knows is that he has to keep his face and ratings on high visibility. He's a media whore costuming as a deliverer of news. Bill is working it anyway he knows how. He has a mortgage to pay and is always looking to pay the bills and feed his ego.

Here's another word for O'Reilly: hypocrite.
