Bill O’Reilly Happy To See Media Acknowledging Border Crisis

While O’Reilly praises the left-wing media in one segment, he surprisingly criticizes members of the Conservative media in another, specifically Candace Owens.

Bill O’Reilly rarely has positive things to say about what he calls “the left wing media” but that changed on Tuesday.  In addressing the situation on the United States’ Southern border, O’Reilly says it is so bad that even left-wing media is starting to take notice.

“The liberal media supported Joe Biden’s presidential campaign 100 percent, but now because the border situation is dangerous to them and the progressive movement, they have started to take notice,” O’Reilly said on Tuesday night’s edition of No Spin News.

O’Reilly then plays a clip of Meet The Press, where commentator Chuck Todd calls the situation a “Crisis for the Biden administration with no easy way out.”

“Now I don’t have any use for Chuck Todd, but he just told you the truth,” O’Reilly said. “By doing so, Mr. Todd was roundly scorched on social media by the Progressive Left who doesn’t want you to know anything. The Biden administration will tell you it’s a challenge and that the border is closed to all but the most venerable young children. But that’s a lie. If the borders are closed, how come ICE is spending 87 million dollars of taxpayer money to put immigrants up in hotel rooms or to fly them all around the country? I’m just trying to be an honest broker of information here and tell you the facts.”

O’Reilly adds that since the Biden administration can’t spin the facts to the media in a positive way, they just ignore them and most media members are too lazy to call their hand on it, but that is starting to change.

“We are being deceived, but I honestly don’t think most Americans are buying it and even the left-wing media is starting to ask tough questions.”

While O’Reilly praises the left-wing media in one segment, he surprisingly criticizes members of the Conservative media in another, specifically Candace Owens.

“Recently President Biden fell down the steps of Air Force One and a lot of people were happy he fell down. That was wrong and it should never happen. I have no use for President Biden’s policies. I think they will and have hurt the country. But I don’t want him to be mocked. That’s just part of the meanness of the media in America.”

O’Reilly points to Owens, conservative host of the Candace Owens Show, and her March 19th tweet about President Biden having dementia to prove his point.

“That’s not necessary Ms. Owens,” O’Reilly said. “You don’t know that Joe Biden has dementia. You are not a doctor. To do that is, I don’t know, you fill in the blank. I’m at a loss for words. I will say that anybody who thinks the President falling is a good thing needs, to take a step back and take a look at yourself.”

One of Elon Musk’s most significant challenges, as he now owns Twitter, lies on the financial side as the Tesla CEO attempts to make the social media stay afloat or at least somewhat profitable. 

However, CNN’s Oliver Darcy shared the reporting done by the Washington Post in his “Reliable Sources” newsletter that more than a third of Twitter’s top 100 advertisers have abandoned the platform.

With advertisers exiting, the lack of ad revenue is one of the most significant dangers to Twitter since it accounted for approximately 90 percent of its income last year.

The reporting also reveals that the pausing of ad campaigns is getting under Musk’s skin. The new Twitter owner lashed out at brands again Tuesday for “starving” the company of revenue. 

Musk also strongly suggested he never really created a “content moderation council” due to advertisers who “broke the deal” they allegedly had with him when they began exiting the platform after he “agreed to this condition.”

Last week saw Twitter have another mass exodus of staffers and Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke with those who are still with the company, reassuring them that his ownership isn’t a “right-wing takeover.”

Furthermore, Musk stated that he doesn’t plan on moving the platform to Texas despite many suggesting he do so since, for him, it would send a wrong message. 

“If we want to move the headquarters to Texas, I think it would play into the idea that Twitter has gone from being left-wing to right-wing, which is not the case,” Musk said (h/t The Verge). “This is not a right-wing takeover of Twitter. It is a moderate-wing takeover of Twitter.”

However, Musk is open to the idea of having dual headquarters, one in San Francisco and another in Texas, but for now, his objective appears to be stabilizing the company after a rocky transition. 

Musk indicated he might be done with slashing employees, telling employees to refer potential staffers for engineering and sales positions.

Blaze TV hosts are reacting to the ongoing controversy involving Twitter. Last week, CBS News said it was halting its activity on the platform amid layoffs and resignations at the company. 

Jeff Fisher joined Pat Gray and Steve Burguiere aka Stu, on the “Glenn Beck Show ” Monday to discuss some of the latest developments involving Twitter including owner Elion Musk banning conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. 

Burguiere said it’s strange to see how left-leaning pundits have demonized Elon Musk following his acquisition of Twitter. 

“This guy should be a liberal icon,” stated Burguiere. “We lose sight of this because he says things about free speech that I guess is exclusively a right-wing issue.” 

Burguiere said that Musk should be able to do anything that he wants with Twitter considering the amount of money he invested to purchase the company. 

“This whole thing that he’s the icon of free speech, I don’t know if that’s true,” added Burguiere. 

Musk announced recently that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones received a permanent ban on Twitter for his involvement in denying that the Sandy Hook massacre took place.

“He (Musk) has been a hard no on Alex no matter what,” said Fisher. 

“He has apologized for it,” Burguiere said. “He’s also been sued for billions of dollars over it.” 

“The thing about Alex Jones is that some of us don’t like what he said,” Gray remarked. “But, who cares, that’s what you call free speech.”
