Bill O’Reilly: ‘Diminishing the Capitol riot could never have happened’ while he was at Fox News

Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said downplaying or diminishing the seriousness of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol is something that “could never have happened” during his time at the network.
“Fox News is a different place than it was when I was there,” O’Reilly said Tuesday evening while appearing on Dan Abrams’ primetime show on NewsNation. “I don’t follow it that that closely anymore, but when I was there, there was a discipline from management that diminishing the Capitol riot could never have happened. And I’ll state that firmly on the record.”
O’Reilly had joined Abrams’ program to discuss revelations this week that top hosts at Fox, including his former colleagues Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Brian Kilmeade, had been texting with then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows during the riot, urging Meadows to convince former President Trump to do something to stop the attack.
“I wouldn’t have done it myself,” O’Reilly said of the text messages the hosts sent Meadows. “I would have asked the question, ‘Say, are you guys going to make a statement? What are you going to do? Looks like things are out of control?’ I don’t think I would have advocated; that’s not what journalists do. But it was in a very intense, quick-breaking situation. So I’m not going to condemn anybody here.”
Hannity and Ingraham both defended their texts to Meadows during their nightly programs on Tuesday and played for their audiences portions of their statements the night of the attack.
“I said to Mark Meadows the exact same thing I was saying live on the radio at that time and on TV that night on Jan. 6 and well beyond Jan. 6,” Hannity said Tuesday.
To: TheoriaThis is one of Trumps flaws. He does not choose the best people
To: RandFanWhat a turd. I never liked him and I hate that Trump tours with him.He’s not a conservative – he’s a moderate at best – who only cares about whether the Left will think he’s fair and balanced – he’s an appeaser and that’s exactly what he’s doing here.When he says he’s “…not going to comment…” on Tucker’s Jan 6 program – that’s classic O’Reilly being a fair and balanced coward.Plus, he’s as dumb as a rock.
Los Angeles County’s COVID-19 Hospitalizations Top 1,000 as Cases Surge
Posted on 12/28/2021, 9:02:33 PM by TipllubFor the first time since late September, the number of people in Los Angeles County hospitals with COVID-19 surpassed the 1,000 mark Tuesday, echoing a sharp upward trend in infections and a dramatic increase in the rate of people testing positive for the virus.According to state figures, there were 1,069 COVID-positive patients in Los Angeles County hospitals as of Tuesday, up from 966 on Monday. Of those patients, 207 were being treated in intensive care, up from 200 a day earlier.The increase is being closely watched by public health officials concerned that hospitals — which expanded capacity to handle COVID patient numbers that topped 8,000 last January — are less equipped to cope with such an intense surge this winter due to various factors, most notably a drop in staffing.The L.A. County increase in COVID hospitalizations has been rapid, jumping by 30% over the past week. One month ago, on Nov. 27, the state reported just 568 virus patients in the county.Also rapidly rising is the rate of people testing positive for the virus. According to the county Department of Public Health, the seven-day average daily rate of people testing positive for the virus rose to 14.5% as of Tuesday. One week ago, the rate was 3%. On Nov. 22, it was 0.9%.
To: TipllubHow is this possible? We were told this is just another flu and will die away during warm summer weather in 2020.
To: TipllubI wonder if everyone just runs to the hospital all freaked out. I had a 100.4 degree fever for 2 days starting Sat. My daughter’s fever started today. The CCP virus is going through our household but we are holding tight. Hunkering down. This is a great time to get the CCP virus—winter break and no school missed. I think my college kid and his girlfriend just got over it as well. Good timing.
To: olivia3boysDon’t take it lightly. Get tested to make sure it is covidI am on day 15 of covid. I got so bad I pulled out the safety box keys at the bank where we keep our will.I had to crawl up our steps I had no energy to standI am 100% convinced being double vaxxed saved the covid from infecting my lungsDuring my first week of covid my classmate died of covid and his twenty something son died 3 days laterDo not make light of this. Go to your doctor
To: TipllubIt’s a pandemic of the vaxxed.The solution is simple. Throw that garbage clot shot toxic poison in the landfill where it belongs.
To: BoomerAt least 242,433,620 people or 74% of the population who have received at least one dose, think opposite of you LOL.When overwhelming majority of people think opposite of you, might be a good time to consult a good shrink.

Ex-Bush aide slams ‘crude, one-dimensional’ Trump Jr.’s advice to conservatives
NY Post ^ | December 27, 2021 | Callie Patteson
Posted on 12/28/2021, 3:52:58 AM by DahoserA former top speechwriter for President George W. Bush slammed Donald Trump Jr. this past weekend over a recent speech in which the former first son lamented that conservatives had “ceded ground in every major institution in our country.”In an op-ed published by The Atlantic Sunday, Peter Wehner took issue with Trump Jr.’s Dec. 19 remarks at the America Fest Conference hosted by Turning Point USA.“If we get together, they cannot cancel us all. Okay? They won’t. And this will be contrary to a lot of our beliefs because — I’d love not to have to participate in cancel culture. I’d love that it didn’t exist,” Trump Jr. said, according to Wehner.“But as long as it does, folks, we better be playing the same game. Okay? We’ve been playing tee-ball for half a century while they’re playing hardball and cheating, right?” he added. “We’ve turned the other cheek, — and I understand, sort of, the biblical reference. I understand the mentality — but it’s gotten us nothing. Okay? It’s gotten us nothing while we’ve ceded ground in every major institution in our country.”
However, Wehner said he was calling attention to Trump Jr.’s statements because they represented “a message for the tens of millions of evangelicals who form the energized base of the GOP: the scriptures are essentially a manual for suckers. The teachings of Jesus have ‘gotten us nothing.’ It’s worse than that, really; the ethic of Jesus has gotten in the way of successfully prosecuting the culture wars against the left.
To: DahoserThis guy is one nut job. Perhaps he doesn’t realize that Jesus is in charge of his next breath. What sacrilege!
To: DahoserSo in other words a Bushie calls for weakness, rolling over and just taking it when the Left does things that are dirty.Gee, there’s a shock!
Rittenhouse to speak at Turning Point USA event The Hill ^ | 12/15/2021 | LEXI LONAS Posted on 12/15/2021, 3:56:27 PM by ChicagoConservative27Kyle Rittenhouse is set to speak at the conservative Turning Point USA conference starting on Saturday.
“There’s a lot of people that want to hear what he has to say and there’s a tremendous amount of interest,” Turning Point spokesman Andrew Kolvet said, AZ Central reported.
“You know, he didn’t ask for it, but he became this cultural symbol, a touch point of self-defense. He got thrust into that, and he has a story to tell,” he added.
Should be interesting.
To: ChicagoConservative27He’s a kid and a Black Lives Matter supporter, what could go wrong?
