An email to Fox News' Bill O'Reilly

Hi Bill, the news filtering through to the Land of Oz concerning your activities continues to be less than inspiring. We hear that the delightful Rosie O'Donnell was attacked left right and center for two weeks solid by "such corporate media establishment hacks as Bill O'Reily, Joe Scarborough and Danny Bonaduce who seriously called for her to be executed". Pharr out. Things certainly seem to be degenerating fast in the Land of the Phreeee.

And for why, Bill? For why? Simply, it seems, because Rosie continues to insist upon her first amendment right to freedom of speech. In particular, speech concerning the events of 911 (or 'IXXI' as we internet users know it). What's wrong with talking about something as unexceptionable as IXXI, Bill? Most sensible people in Oz, and indeed all across the globe, know that it was orchestrated by a lot more than a diabetic in a cave with or without a mobile and a bunch of Muslim patsies having attended flight training on Cesnas. Bill, who do you think you're fooling? Put it another way ... who do you think you're protecting?

Even on a bad day, it seems, Rosie can do a lot better ratings-wise than your own reputedly "failing Fox News show". Apparently the ABC's The View averages over twice as many viewers as yours, reaching a total of around 30 million viewers per show. Apparently the uproar last month came about after Rosie had a rant to those 30 million viewers about the many questions surrounding the collapse of Building 7. Much to the displeasure of those involved with the production of The View whom Rosie describes as "Neocon gate-keepers".

How utterly absurd. I mean, even John Kerry (at Book People in Austin, TX April 22, 2007) says that he is open to looking at evidence supporting the views put forward by professor Steven Jones and his controlled demolition findings on the 911 attacks. Why, even the owner, Lazza Silverstein, reckoned in one statement that WTC7 had been "pulled". To that Kerry responded that "they made a decision based on the danger, that it had of destroying other things – that they did it in a controlled fashion". So you see, Bill, there's nothing even particularly controversial about the idea that WTC7 at least, was deliberately demolished. The only remaining question is ... when and how did they plant the explosives and who did so?

Bill, would you describe yourself as a "neocon gate-keeper"? Or for that matter as an "America hater" as the article below would have it?

Yours for truth-telling in public broadcasting.

P.S. Bill, I do hope that you don't find yourself in the unhappy position of famed news anchor Dan Rather. Several months after 9/11, apparently, Dan told the BBC: "There was a time in South Africa that people would put flaming tires around peoples' necks if they dissented. And in some ways the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck. Now it is that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions ... What we are talking about here – whether one wants to recognise it or not, or call it by its proper name or not – is a form of self-censorship."
