I used to watch Bill O’Reilly’s show regularly several years ago. I watched it because I saw it as pure comedy to me. Add to that the fact that I knew there were a host of people watching who took this guy seriously. However, somewhere along the line it got old, and my interest in his show slowly faded. Fast forward to today, and I see that Bill is up to his same old tricks. In the following clip he discusses poverty in America with Tavis Smiley, and Dr. Cornel West.

As you may know, these are two of my favorite people. So, I just knew they were going to bring it just the way I ike it. That is, they were going to tell it like it is. In the following clip Bill makes an attempt to create a direct correlation between substance abuse and poverty. In ultra-propagandist manner as only the master puppeteer Bill O’Reilly exists. In the following, he tries to convince the brothers that substance abuse was responsible for poverty in America, in his defense of Wall Street.

Check this out; I thought they were gonna fight:

RiPPa is the creator, publisher, and editor-in-chief of The Intersection of Madness & Reality. As a writer, he uses his sense of humor, sarcasm, and sardonic negro wit to convey his opinion. Being the habitual line-stepper and fire-breathing liberal-progressive, whether others agree with him, isn’t his concern. He loves fried chicken, watermelon, and President Barack Obama. Yes, he's Black; yes, he's proud; and yes, he says it loud. As such, he's often misunderstood.

    I could not bring it to myself to watch this, it had nothing to do with Tavis or Dr. West, I cannot stomach Bill O Reilly. The only thing I am wondering is, if when O Reilly started on his course of drug addiction and poverty, did anyone stop to ask him about Beck and Limbaugh who are both rich, yet have had their issues with substance abuse?
