I say moderate when compared to, say, Atilla the Hun. — Unsigned, by: Bob M / talk / contribs 12:06, 3 August 2007‎ (UTC)

Last night[edit]

During Countdown with Keith Olbermann commercials I flip over to Billo to see what un-newsy thing he's bitchin' about. Last night was interesting. His "top" story was an O'Reilly exclusive. I won't go into the details, but my point is about it being an exclusive.

When I think of exclusive, I think of a lot of people clamoring to get a story, only one gets it, and that is the exclusive. How can something be an exclusive if you're the only one talking about it? And yes, I understand that it is still an exclusive in a strict definition of exclusive. Just a thought. --Edgerunner76 08:32, 12 December 2007 (EST)

the youtube videos[edit]

Can we please simply link to them instead of embedding them? It completely freezes up slower computers (aka mine), and is just filler for a page. Excessive embedded videos is one of the reasons I don't go to ED anymore (besides their obsession with photoshopping 50 dicks on every image and the awful writing) ENorman 13:56, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Could someone...[edit]

...chuck this ( ) link in after the Brooker quote I just put in? I tried, but for the life of me I can't seem to do it without mucking up the formatting. Cheers! Webbtje (talk) 22:12, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

I think I done did it. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:39, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Silver or bronze rating?[edit]

I'm having a hard time rating this. Do people think this is bronze or silver worthy? Punky Your mental puke relief 06:02, 6 June 2010 (UTC)


I dunno. I think it's too ED-esque myself-no snark (just bad jokes), few facts, and a crapload of videos.... I wrote some material a while ago...--Colonel Sanders (talk) 21:01, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Wasn't there a rewrite for this article? Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 21:06, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I wrote it. Bill O'Reilly/Rewrite. It was killed.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 21:11, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Why? I remember thinking that it was better than what we have now. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 21:16, 17 December 2011 (UTC)
Quoth Blue: "No subpages in mainspace". See User:Colonel Sanders/Bill O'Reilly--Colonel Sanders (talk) 21:17, 17 December 2011 (UTC)


This needs an actual cleanup badly, not just a BoN's insertion of every possible link.--ZooGuard (talk) 12:09, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. To be honest, I'm almost inclined to undo that BoN edit just because it made a bad mess worse. The Symphony of Noise The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 12:30, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
All those videos really do this a disservice. Can we make a sub-page with them or something? The Symphony of Noise The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 12:38, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Make 'em a bunch of external links. ТyrannisAn iron, but caring, fist 12:44, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
And with that comes another problem: they are 75% of this article. The Symphony of Noise The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 12:46, 30 May 2012 (UTC)
Do it, mark as a stub. If we can't write an article on Bill O'Reilly in a few days we deserve to be forced to watch his show every airing for a month. ТyrannisAn iron, but caring, fist 12:52, 30 May 2012 (UTC)


I think this article has been sufficiently expanded. If there are no objections, I will remove the stub tag. --TheLateGatsby (talk) 15:22, 30 August 2012 (UTC)

You know...[edit]

He kinda looks like Bill Murray. Just saying. — Unsigned, by: Utter Lunacy / talk / contribs 06:45, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Yeah, but Bill Murray is funny on purpose. BicyclewheelModerator 14:43, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Meanwhile, not in the Falklands[edit]

He says he was there... but wasn't. BicyclewheelModerator 11:36, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
