    I've had enough of O'Reilly's b.s.! Have you?

    Quite enough of Bush's media toadies, spin doctors and liars.

    Particularly Bill O'Reilly.

    For a while there I would tune in his segment of Fox News, primarily taking an entertainment break from the more serious reporting. Kinda like watching the History Channel, realizing the show was a rerun and going to Wide World of Wresting for a laugh or two.

    You know ....... sublime to ridiculous.

    Now we have O'Reilly threatening callers who disagree with him with false legal action and intimating physical harm. One in particular is a woman who called, was threatened with "Fox Security" and was called by someone named "Tony" (no last name given), claiming to be from Fox Security and who left a message for her to call.

    Scared the hell out of her !!

    Well, I'm old school and you don't "beat up" on women physically or orally for any reason.

    Doesn't really matter that the CEO of Fox News started out back in Poppy Bush's camp and might be inordinately biased, but when you add the outright lies, propaganda and now threats that O'Reilly spouts, he and Fox News become dangerous. What appalls me is that his fans actually believe the b.s. he spews like a puppy with a severe case of the "runs".

    The O'Reilly Factor is Fox News highest rated show and as such brings in the most advertising dollars. As ridiculous and disgusting as he is, O'Reilly makes Fox a lot of money.

    So let's use a little technique that was favored by a couple of "radicals" named Gandhi and King.

    Painful as you may find it, spend a few hours watching Fox News and write down the names of the sponsors, particularly those shown during the O'Reilly Factor. You have to remember that many of the products advertised are just brand names and are owned by a larger corporation like Proctor and Gamble, Beatrice Foods, etc.

    You might have to look them up via the Net. Just plug the brand name into your search and you'll find who owns it.

    For instance, Folger's Coffee is owned by Proctor and Gamble. You can go to http://www.pg.com/getintouch/index.jhtml and they have a customer reponse e-mail link. You will also note that they have a list of their products.

    Do this for every advertiser shown.

    Then drop them all an E and say something like:

    Do this for at least a couple of months. As much your time will allow.


    To Whom It May Concern

    I have noted that you have purchased advertising time for your Folger's Coffee brand on the Fox News program, "The O'Reilly Factor".

    Be advised that, in my opinion, Bill O'Reilly's reporting and commentary are at best devious and deceptive, generally constituting nothing but biased propaganda and at worst a conglomerate of outright lies. He now stoops to threatening those who disagree with him sham legal action and intimates physical harm.

    Be advised that so long as you support this individual via your advertising anywhere on the Fox Network, I will no longer buy your product and will encourage as many people as possible to join me in this action.

    Sincerly,

    (I sign my name, but if Bill scares you, sign it "A Former Customer"

    Now back it up with a phone call to their customer service line.

    And, do me a favor. send this on to everyone, everyplace that you can, via the Net or otherwise.

    Let's see if we can make a difference and get this guy off the air.

    Oh, you can add Limbaugh, Hannity and the rest of Bush's camp followers to the effort if you wish ........ I have !

    p.s. To "Fox Security", my phone number is 503-826-0571. Give me a call.
    Would love to hear from you !!
    Oh, if you do call I'm legally required to advise you that the call is being
    recorded.

    You can also e-mail me at chiluqui@peoplepc.com.

    Two other ideas for you that might be easier.

    1. The "Power" button.
    2. The "Change Channel" button.

    Read it, Learn it, Live it.
