LA Times threatens O'Reilly with Secret Service
    #4222483 - 05/26/05 02:32 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

What's up with this? How can a newspaper threaten anyone with the secret service? It's almost as if the LA Times is admitting to being a public relations arm for the White House. Although maybe I'm reading too much into it. What do you think?

LA Times Threatens O'Reilly With Secret Service

The Los Angeles Times is slamming Bill O'Reilly ? for slamming the Los Angeles Times.

The newspaper has warned the "telephilosopher" to stop his "decapitation fantasies" involving Times editorial page editor Michael Kinsley ? or face trouble from the Secret Service.

Story Continues Below



It all started with a Times editorial urging the shutdown of the terrorist detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and access to attorneys for detainees.
That set off O'Reilly. During the broadcast of "The Radio Factor with Bill O?Reilly" on May 17, he declared:

"How can they think this way? How can anyone think this way? You know: 'Shutting down Guantanamo and giving suspected terrorists legal protections would help restore our reputation abroad.'"

Said O'Reilly, "That?s like saying, 'Well, if we're nicer to the people who want to kill us, then the other people who want to kill us will like us more.'"

Then he fired off the big gun, saying the paper's editorial board will "never get it until they [the terrorists] grab Michael Kinsley out of his little house and they cut his head off. And maybe when the blade sinks in, he'll go, 'Perhaps O'Reilly was right.'"

The Times counterattacked in a May 24 editorial. Questioning why people the U.S. has liberated from tyranny "don't love us," the paper stated, "It doesn?t seem worthy of decapitation to suggest that ghastly stories (not all fabricated by Newsweek) about abuse of prisoners don't help."

The Times has long had an ax to grind with Fox News. Much of the paper's anger no doubt comes from Fox's coverage of the Times' last-minute smear job on Arnold Schwarzenegger in the days leading up to the 2003 gubernatorial recall race.

For the moment, O'Reilly is in the liberal paper's crosshairs, warning: "O'Reilly should be careful. Any further decapitation fantasies could get him in serious trouble with the Secret Service."

It seems the paper has difficulty distinguishing between a threat and a "fantasy." And when it comes to actual threats against its employees, the paper may want to check with its lawyers on whom to contact.

The Secret Service deals with threats against the president and vice president, not editorial writers.

The LA Times makes a great bird cage liner and also is great for wrapping fish entrails. When I lived in the area, I subscribed to the Orange County Register.

O'Reilly's still a loud mouthed lout.

I wouldn't disrespect any pet of mine with either of those rags. Especially the OC register. As much as I am all for defecating on products of Orange country I wouldn't have the heart.

Man, the LA Times just is going out of its way to make sure everybody knows they're complete idiots.

The Secret Service? They won't give two shits.

Did O'Reilly say he would decapitate anyone? Nope. Did he WISH decapitation on anyone? Nope.

He merely stated that he believed Kinsley to be so thick-headed he would not understand the repercussions of his actions until he himself was a victim of them. No threat, no fantasy, just a bunch of idiots over at the LA Times who don't know what's going on.

Of course, he did put it in quite a crude, loud-mouthed manner.. but that's pretty much O'Reilly's selling point.
