HOST UNHINGED AFTER SALES FIGURES REVEALED; CALLS DRUDGE 'THREAT TO DEMOCRACY'

TalkerAuthor Bill O'Reilly lashed out against this space during his popular FOXNEWS O'REILLY FACTOR Wednesday night -- just hours after closely guarded book sales figures were splashed over the internet.

Sales figures show how, contrary to his claims, O'Reilly lags far behind rivals Al Franken and Sen. Hillary Clinton for nonfiction props!

Responding to an exclusive yearender DRUDGE dispatch, which presented NIELSEN's Top 20 BOOKSCAN list of 2003 sales, O'Reilly called the DRUDGE REPORT a "threat to democracy."

"I mean you can't believe a word Matt Drudge says," O'Reilly told the cameras. "Now you've got the Matt Drudges of the world and these other people, Michael Moore and all of these crazies, all right, no responsibility... that is a threat to democracy, I think." O'Reilly warned: "They'll just spin it and twist it and take it out of proportion every which way."

Last year, the host of Cable TVs most-watched newscast became unbuckled and turned unstable after this space first revealed how O'Reilly was plotting a new radio program to air opposite Rush Limbaugh [who had just lost his hearing] and how WOR-AM in New York would receive cash compensation from VIACOM to carry the program. [The broadcast launched several months later.]

"There is no other cure than to kill Matt Drudge," O'Reilly charged on the IMUS in the MORNING radio show.

"I just want to tell everybody that Matt Drudge is smoking crack - right now, in South Miami Beach on Washington Avenue... And the authorities should know it."

O'Reilly is such a pompous a-hole. He despises Dudge because Drudge uncovers how O'Reilly's ventures into other mediums like radio and print are manipulated and cooked to make him look more popular than he really is. The more he lashes out at Drudge, the more closely Drudge will scrutinize him and be quick to call attention to any misstep O'Reilly takes. Pretty dumb.

Well, between his bullshit about "Assault Weapons" last week and now this, I'd have to say that Mr. O'Reilly has officially gone off the deep end. I think we're looking at a classic example of someone who's let his "fame" and notoriety override whatever common sense he had. He's buying his own PR it would seem. “Threat to Democracy” for announcing book sales figures? Come on Bill, I think you might need to consult a good therapist at this point. Just another talking head with an audience.

I used to really like O'Reilly, but in the last few months, he has taken the most outlandish positions on issues. I no longer give him any credence nor any of my time. I think he is losing his fucking mind! [whacko]

When he came out against SUVs - which in my mind is him telling me what kind of car/truck to own - I lost a lot of respect for him. After last week, he made my shit list.

O'Reilly is a New York conservative, which in reality, is a liberal who wants to keep his money.
