Sharpton on O’Reilly’s $25K
Donation: ‘Far Outweighed by
Vile and Hateful Things He Says’

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/17/2013 8:41:10 AM

The escalting war between MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly took an unexpected turn last night when O’Reilly revealed that he had donated $25,000 to Sharpton’s charity to help pay for Christmas gifts and dinner for underprivileged families in Harlem. Earlier today, Sharpton offered some choice words for O’Reilly in an interview, but this afternoon on his show he really let the Fox host have it. Sharpton pointed that like O’Reilly, he never mentioned the donation until now. “Bill doesn’t realize it, but this story actually reveals what kind of person he is… Bill gave that money privately

Comments:
What an ungrateful, disgusting jerk. Say what you will about O´Reilly, he is very generous in his donations and has never said anything racist. If anything, he bends over backwards not to offend anyone (like 0bama). O´Reilly´s help in getting donations and Trackchairs for wounded veterans has been incredible. Sharpton should just shut up and stop lying. He makes himself look worse, if that is even possible.

You can lead a horse to water, but you can´t make him think. Sharpton has the money shake-down routine perfected. This chapter simply confirms it. How did Sharpton spend the $25K? Can he prove it?

Sharpton is looking for the big payoff, just waiting for the beer distributorship or how about a name-brand car dealership.

O´Reilly and Sharpton are both performers, they do their act well and entertain millions. It is a serious mistake to think the private person is the same as the loud bloviating news commenter.

“Reverend Al Sharpton!” That in itself is a misnomer. There’s nothing worthy of reverence about Artificial Al. His twisted, convoluted, pretzel-like words are his stock in trade. “Racist Al Sharpton” would be more accurate.
I ceased being a fan of Bill O’Reilly years ago, not for what he stands for, but for his way of telling me about it. His bombastic bloviating as he interrupts and talks over people – most of whom are guests on his program – is just more than I can endure. The old line, “that guy could give an aspirin a headache” fits him perfectly.
As for Al Sharpton… he’s all racist, all the time. Count on it!

$25k for a much needed education is a pretty fair price. O´Reilly needs to understand that there is a cultural war going on, that these people on the left are not playing, and that the really do mean harm. O´Reilly is the conservative media´s equivalent of a McCain reaching across the aisle. Like McCain it´s all about him with no idea the damage he is doing by treating this all as some sort of gentlemen´s club. He was played for his $25k. It bought him nothing. Knowing who and what Rev. Sharpton is did he take any steps to be sure that all the money went to the families? Was there a better choice in organizations than Rev. Al´s? Sure there was so what was O´Reilly´s real motive in doing this? It could not have been the welfare of the families because there was a much better way than anything Sharpton is connected to. Wake up O´Reilly and play to win.

#17 You are right on! Bill is a "moderate" and "gives everyone the benefit of doubt" because it impresses his no-info audience and gets him good ratings. He needs to "wise up" and realize the libs are destroying the country. Perhaps this will open his eyes and he will begin to stand up for something for a change instead of dancing around on every issue.
(But it is very entertaining to watch him dance!)

Sorry but OReilly, Hannity and some others helped build Sharpston´s stature by putting the racist windbag on their show from time to time. They gave him legitimacy and cred by allowing him to spew his lies on air. I used to pull my hair out when I´d see him on those shows when we all knew his history.

Now it´s biting OReilly in the arse. So, he´s got his own show to spread his propaganda? Well, OReilly, you helped put him there! And how much of your $25K went in his or a cronies wallet?

What a thankless person Sharpton is. the donation Bill made was years ago and he never said a word about it. He went to Sharpton to gain knowledge about Harlem and they were ´friends´ then. Now when Bill explains their early years and quietly says he gave money, Sharpton´s ingratitude is astounding like the awful demagogue he is and just for exposure of his own persona. No, I don´t really like Bill that much but Al is completely out of line here.

Facebook removes my post about

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
