AUDIO–Media Matters Edits Bill O’Reilly and Juan Williams

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 1, 2007

The Lefty Lie Machine is at it again (as if they ever stop!), and this time their target is none other than Bill “The Bloviator” O’Reilly.

Example:

During the September 19 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, discussing his recent trip to have dinner with Rev. Al Sharpton at Sylvia’s, a famous restaurant in Harlem, Bill O’Reilly reported that he “had a great time, and all the people up there are tremendously respectful,” adding: “I couldn’t get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia’s restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship.” Later, during a discussion with National Public Radio senior correspondent and Fox News contributor Juan Williams about the effect of rap on culture, O’Reilly asserted: “There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, ‘M-Fer, I want more iced tea.’ You know, I mean, everybody was — it was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun. And there wasn’t any kind of craziness at all.” O’Reilly also stated: “I think black Americans are starting to think more and more for themselves. They’re getting away from the Sharptons and the [Rev. Jesse] Jacksons and the people trying to lead them into a race-based culture. They’re just trying to figure it out. ‘Look, I can make it. If I work hard and get educated, I can make it.”

Link to their disingeniously edited audio, and my upload of their edited audio in case they take theirs down once they realize the gig is up.

This is taken out of context. Here is the audio of the entire segment[My LINK] [Link for Premium Members], which Bill O’Reilly should have posted on his site for free to help clear this up. And here is the audio for the entire show for even more context, because context matters, and the argumentum ad hominem attacks on Bill O’Reilly must be answered loudly, and placed on the internet where it will remain…not spoken into the ether, where it disappears almost as quickly as spoken unless someone captures it and make it available for download.

This is the audio where I have combined the audio from the Radio Factor in the right channel with the Media Matters edited audio in the left channel (get it?), and when played, you can hear the edits that take the show out of context, and remove both Bill and Juan discussing racism from the audio. I also had to synch the audio in a couple of places because of audio clipping in the Media Matters segment. I also placed the edits in correct chronological order, after lowering the volume in the left channel once you get the idea that Media Matters has edited out several minutes of conversation between Bill and Juan.

Enjoy!

I was clued in on this event by a Lefty in a discussion group who has, in all likelyhood, never listened to a complete two hour show of The Radio Factor. I have. I discovered the show a couple of years ago when I purchased my XM Radio, and listened to the show when I am in an area where I cannot hear Rush Limbaugh, which includes pretty much everything west of Hazelwood in Haywood County.

I am also a very vociferous destroyer of white supremacists, and do not tolerate any form of racism, whether it be anti-black, anti-white, anti-asian, or any of the “invented” races out there.

Others have commented upon the latest attempt to discredit Bill O’Reilly:

The latest victim of the PC police is once again Bill O’Reilly. O’Reilly gets called every name in the book because he stands for something…anything…and does not bow before the god of conventional wisdom and political correctness. If you watch his show long enough or hear his daily radio program you will know that the man is for the most part fair. He can be sensationalist (Chris Benoit), at times or over-the-top, (flat buns) but on average I believe that he is a social crusader trying to bring important stories to light that would otherwise be ignored in the mainstream media. I don’t always agree with him but I think he is an important voice in the national conversation.

When he is not commentating on hard news of the day, he will pose a philosophical or social question that is relevant to modern society. Recently he dealt with the unnecessarily sticky widget that is race relations. He attempted to make the argument that false perceptions of people different than you can lead to fear, which ultimately leads to hatred and violence. Racism is the belief and/or practice that your race is superior to all others or a certain other and that the inferior races should be treated as such with specific actions to intimidate or control said inferior race. Racism is perpetuated by myths and stereotypes that are played to and broadcasted by a power structure that seeks to maintain the status quo; for example, whites should be in charge and have lots of money that the government can’t have, blacks should serve and entertain.

On his radio show he sought to introduce this topic of discussion by telling his story about how he and race baiter par excellence Rev. Al Sharpton went to a famous soul food restaurant in Harlem. This appears to be the damning comment he made in the entire 10 minute monologue, “I couldn’t get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia’s restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship.”

And with the words, “I couldn’t get over…” Bill O’Reilly, who dines with Al Sharpton and converses with Juan Williams (both black liberals), metamorphoses into Bill O’Racist hater of the black man far and wide. I’ve actually seen real racists before and have experienced real racism. Those folks don’t treat Al Sharpton for dinner in a Harlem soul food restaurant…ever.

These charges of racism by Media Matters and other venues are completely without context. By assigning that tag to him it negates truly racist behavior. Even if you will not give O’Reilly the benefit of the doubt by virtue of his association and history with ACTUAL BLACK PEOPLE, then you must at least use the word properly. If there is no action to back up the feeling or thought then there is no racism. O’Reilly made an observation. It was arguably a bit obtuse but that is the vernacular of talk radio. If he were too professorial he’d lose the majority of his audience and more importantly, his advertisers.

He did not utter the words, “I couldn’t get over…” and then add, “So I think what needs to happen here is a good hanging from the nearest Central Park tree.” I believe that O’Reilly is suffering from a social disease but it’s not racism. The social disease in question is assuming the worst about others. This hypersensitiveness that seeks to choke the life out of meaningful discourse comes from people with a lynch mob mentality who, to cover their own failings and weaknesses, accuse others of the most vile things possible. If you truly believe that what O’Reilly said, in the context he was saying it, in all of its nuance, was that hurtful and intentionally racist, one must wonder what baggage you are carrying yourself. How do you get up in the morning and make it out the front door being that raw and easily wounded?

And I found a reference to it on a transcript of Bill’s Talking Points Memo

And Juan Williams set the record straight here.

Perhaps it is time for me to bring back my posts on Exposing Liberal Lies, whjich I discontinued when I discovered News Busters.

Media Matters–Lefty Liars Lying How you can help stop these liars

Posted by Thunder Pig on October 1, 2007

Media Matters is at it again (as if they’ve ever stopped), and they have attacked Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly this past week.

And this time, they’ve tricked the Democrats in Congress to propose legislation condemning Rush Limbaugh, which must mean that Maha-Rushdie must’ve hit them where it hurts.

Here is a link to story ABC News did three days before Rush reported on the same subject: Phony Soldiers, and here is the intro by ABC Anchor Charles Gibson:

CHARLES GIBSON, HOST: (Voiceover) ‘A Closer Look” tonight at phony heroes. A famous recruiting slogan once touted the Army as a place to be all you can be. But increasingly, scam artists are posing as the war heroes they never were, claiming credit for acts of courage in Iraq and Afghanistan. Federal officials have launched a crackdown. Operation Stolen Valor they call it. Tonight, our Brian Ross investigates.

Newsbusters has an excellent post on Media Matters, and here is a sliver:

Last week, two of the leading conservatives in the media, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly, were dishonestly and unprofessionally attacked by press outlets that cherry-picked out of context remarks from lengthy radio broadcasts in order to vilify outspoken personalities whose opinions they don’t agree with.

Unfortunately, as folks around the country saw this play out on their television sets and newspapers, few were at all familiar with the organization behind the smear campaigns, or that this same group started the firestorm which ended with radio host Don Imus being terminated by NBC and CBS in April.

Maybe more importantly, even fewer citizens are aware that this organization is linked directly to Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as billionaire leftist George Soros.

For some background, John Perazzo wrote a column for FrontPage Magazine in July entitled “Media Matters: Hillary’s Lap Dogs,” that should be must-reading for all citizens interested in who’s targeting America’s leading conservative personalities :

Established in May 2004, Media Matters identifies itself as “a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media”—particularly information “that forwards the conservative agenda.” The organization was founded by the conservative-turned-leftist journalist David Brock, who says he created Media Matters “to combat” what he characterizes as the largely successful effort of “the right wing in this country” to “mov[e] the media itself to the right” and to “mov[e] American politics to the right.”

Commentary

I had no idea this thing was going to blow up as big as it has, I guess there are more ignorant Democrats serving in the Congress than I had believed. I have prepared a post which will go up this morning before 9am where I expose the attack on Bill O’Reilly as a lie, and a smear taken out of context with edited audio from his Sept 19, 2007 show.

I also have the audio from the Rush Limbaugh show in question, but not enough time to take a look at the Media Matters version to see exactly where the edits ( if any ) took place.

See what appeasement gets you? You (the general public) fed Media Matters Don Imus, and now they are back, looking for another sacrifice. Are you going to let them take everyone else, before they come for you? I seem to remember that was how the Gestapo worked…they came for people no one really liked first (Don Imus, others). Now they are back for people they have been spreading lies about…how long will it be before they come for your Free Speech? When they do that (and they will), their will be no one left to defend you.

You can defend Limbaugh. You can defend Bill O’Reilly. You can make up for not defending the idiot Don Imus. There is strength in numbers.

Call your Congress Critter and demand that the Condemnation of Rush Limbaugh be dropped.
And go one step further, call for the investigation of Media Matters.

Stay tuned for my post exposing the Media Matters edited audio of Bill O’Relliy and Juan Williams taken out of context.

Media Matters is a corrupt organization that will lie to acheive it’s leftist agenda.
