Bill O'Reilly appears on 'The Tonight Show' to criticize First Lady's 'Oscar' "propaganda"

O'Reilly

Isn't it great that America is so perfect that we can waste time dwelling on things such as First Lady Michelle Obama doing a surprise appearance on the Academy Awards telecast? 

While that should not really matter to anyone, because it did not change anything, Conservative media personalities have spent all week furious about it. Including Fox News' top star, Bill O'Reilly.

Appearing on Friday's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, O'Reilly said the incident was “the most propagandistic thing I’ve ever seen." Obviously he does not watch his network.

“She’s been very nice to my daughter and I see her at White House parties," he added, saying that if Barbara Bush was first lady, this never would have happened.  “You think Harvey Weinstein would have called up W.? It was such propaganda. But you can’t blame Michelle Obama. You get the opportunity, you do it.”

Obama earlier on Friday on NBC said she expected the criticisms.

"That's just the nature of life. I mean, we live in a time when there are bloggers and tweeters and 24-hour news and everyone has a voice in this town square and it's a big one. And it's good -- overall, it's good -- but that means that at any point and given time, somebody's not gonna like what you do. That's just the nature of things," she said.

Why does this matter, again?

Criticism, negativism, and taking potshots at others replaced a large portion of news years ago. The song "Dirty Laundry" by Don Henley went to number 1 in 1982, over 30 years ago. Per an article on Wikipedia "The song was performed on the Eagles' Long Road Out of Eden tour in 2008. During the song, a background video shows, among other things, clips from The O'Reilly Factor, Glenn Beck, and The Jerry Springer Show." Since ("We all know that crap is king") is it any wonder that people like Bill O'Reilly is one of the top contenders as king of that particular pile? Congrats to the First Lady for her remarks. She articulated and acknowledged the problem simply and clearly without condemning anyone or apologizing to anyone.
