So, does anybody on this site actually think The O’Reilly Factor is fair and balanced? I have a feeling KingJohn will say yes, though I’m trying to figure out what other people think. I’ve been watching this show for quite some time and I honestly don’t think the show is either fair or balanced; I’ve seldom seen Bill criticize conservatives, yet he constantly bashes liberals on a regular basis. There have been plenty of other things that he’s done that just haven’t been all too fair, which really irks me, as Bill constantly claims he’s an Independent and that he treats everybody the same.
Somebody actually recorded the number of attacks, on both people and groups, on both the left and the right that took place on The O’Reilly Factor over the past six months. Below was their results, though feel free to check out the transcripts of the episodes themselves if you don’t believe them.

I may have more to say on this issue, though I’m waiting to see if anybody will reply to this before I bother putting too much more thought into it.
