O’Reilly ‘Decides’ to Bully a Cartoonist


Don’t Muslim extremists want to take out cartoonists? Isn’t that their deal? Isn’t Bill O’Reilly against Muslim extremists? Then why is he going after a cartoonist for being critical of him? He’s out to intimidate Detroit Free Press cartoonist Mike Thompson for the above cartoon.

Rob Tornoe at Cagle Cartoons writes:

“Believe me when I tell you the far left is seething over all of this NPR stuff,” O’Reilly said. “The blow back has begun. Take a look at this political cartoon in the Detroit Free Press by Mike Thompson featuring me wearing ‘Obama equals Hitler’ stuff.”

“Please don’t sink to his level but can you let him know what you think,” O’Reilly said after giving out Thompson’s e-mail address on air. “Keep it respectful but don’t be like Mike.”

O’Reilly is a bully and a coward. It’s a cartoonist’s job to poke fun at O’Reilly and it’s O’Reilly’s job not to issue a Fox News fatwa every time he’s criticized. How shallow and petty can you be? Man up, O’Reilly.
