Slow Day So Here’s Some Red Meat For You

Slate Magazine’s  Amanda Marcotte (predictably) ridicules Bill O’Reilly and Jesse Watters..

Bill O’Reilly has been very concerned about the problem of degrading women lately. So concerned, in fact, that he worried out loud that Sandra Fluke had degraded women with her immodest suggestion that insurance benefits cover contraception. With Bill O’Reilly as a fierce protector of ladies, you can imagine that his show’s segment on single female voters last night was a chaste, respectful affair that represented the wide diversity of this important portion of the electorate: the never-married, the divorced, the widowed, the single mothers and the non-mothers, the cohabitating but unmarried, the young and the old, and, of course, women from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds.

Just kidding! O’Reilly sent his producer Jesse Watters out on Halloween weekend to interview sexy young white women on the street, all of them in costume and ready to party, so that Watters could leer at their single lady voter breasts and condescendingly make “can you believe they have a right to vote?!” faces at the camera in response to the women’s selectively edited answers to his questions.

  1. Predictable, perhaps, but undoubtedly accurate. Jesse Watters does what any talentless hack could do, which is to go out and “interview” people, then edit down to the dumbest bits. It’s a schtick as old as television, and Steve Allen must be looking down and saying “When I did that, 50-years-ago, it was actually funny.”. Watters is highly skippable.

  2. I look at the segments as totally unusable for any information purposes but do enjoy the laugh just as I do the Jaywalking segments on Leno.

  3. Watters’ segments aren’t meant to be serious. They’re fun (at least I think they are). I love what some of the interviewees say about O’Reilly, both pro and con, and I love the movie clips they show after someone gives a silly answer.

  4. Scantily clad chicks on The Factor? Gambling in Casablanca?

  5. And those are usually just the guests..
