O'Reilly's employers happy to take money from Stalinist group

And you thought UNICEF was this humanitarian project gathering money, pennies at a time, to feed hungry children in developing countries.


According to Bill O'Reilly: "[I]f Joseph Stalin was still alive, he'd be the UNICEF spokesperson."

Yet, a recent Fox email has a big banner splashed across the top advertising UNICEF. What gives?

In all fairness, O'Reilly's asinine comment was spewed during his radio show and not his Fox performance.

But let's face it, O'Reilly's just a performer in Fox's third-rate vaudevillian universe. It's just sadly ironic that O'Reilly's half-cocked rants bring in ad revenue from some of the same folks he pillories on air.

Perhaps Tim Karr has the answer in his post: "Fox News Drifting Left?"

On the O'Reilly factor recently: "Arch-conservative watchdog Cliff Kincaid worries that Fox News Channel has turned coat and is now a propaganda front for 'extreme' liberal views -- like the harebrained notion that global warming is real."

Global Warming? Support for UNICEF? O'Reilly may need to migrate to a White Power outlet -- he's a got a reputation after all... (Mediacitizen)
