Oh my.. I am so excited rate now.

Bill, my fav. journalist EVER! I wrote him a letter to his email from his FNC show.

And he PERSONALLY responded to me via email!

Quote:

*my name*,
Thank you for your kind words.

~ Bill O'Reilly

I am 90% sure this is acutally him who read my letter! See his staff probably reads all the letters and picks the ones of interest for him to read, and mine got read!

I have never been so giddy...

Its Off-topic, but damn did that make my day!

Congratulations. I must confess that I have no idea who this chap is

Judging from O'Reilly's behaviour, I don't think it was him who wrote it. It was probably the mailcheckers at Fox News.

I think you can be about 99.99% sure he didn't see it, and wouldn't have cared if he did. "Thank you for your kind words" sounds pretty generic. Try having a few friends send him another supportive message; I'll bet they get exactly the same response you did. The mail is probably sorted into two categories, supporters and critics, and everybody in the former category gets the same letter. And there's probably another one for the critics that says something like "Thank you for your interest in the program." Possibly with "Shut the Hell up" appended.

You actually like this guy? You won't get any useful news from him, or from Fox. He's a demagogue, I've seen him shout down people who disagree with him, he's not interested in intelligent dialog, he's interested in putting people down. And he lies, especially about himself. He claimed to have won a Peabody award for his work on the "Inside Edition" program, for instance. Not true. That was exposed, so he changed his tune: it was the Polk award. It's true that the "Inside Edition" received a Polk award, but it was after O'Reilly had left the program. No honour to him. He also makes much of his supposedly working class origins. He used to claim that he came from Levittown, a fairly low level suburb, until his mother Angela explained to the Washington Post that he grew up in Westbury, Long Island, a middle class neighbourhood. In the first chapter of his book The O'Reilly Factor he claims his family was pretty far down on the social totem pole, which seems to have meant they could afford only one vacation in Florida a year. And they had enough money to send him to a private school, and Boston University for two degrees, and a year in England in between.

According to the Boston Globe, he manages to make about $4 million a year. Lot of money to pretend to be a regular guy while shamelessly shilling for the powers that exploit them for one of the biggest media conglomerates in the world. And you think he's going to read an email from a guy in Canada? Wasn't he one of the guys who called us Canuckistan, claimed the 9/11 terrorists entered the U.S. from Canada, and said Canada is a hot bed of anti-U.S. terrorists? He has no respect for facts, he can't think clearly, and he's exactly what he pretends not to be, a wealthy elitist shilling for America's political far right.

I have that one beat all to hell. JJ Cale actually handwrote me a letter that he rarely travels far from his ranch in Montana anymore, but if he did manage to wander into BC again, he'd look me up and cash in the raincheck for a fishing trip. His wife told me that his preferred form of relaxation is sitting in a chair on the porch in his sockin feets playing his guitar and singing. www.jjcale.com/INDEX_MAIN.html (external - login to view)
JJ Cale is VASTLY more entertaining than O'Reilly.

No,he didn't. But I took the letter to the bank and used it for collateral to obtain a huge loan.

"Call Me the Breeze" is a tune I played in a band about 20 years ago. Ugh time moves too fast.

An American network? Thankfully, I am a rare Canadian. I hardly ever watch American television programmes or networks..must make me a weirdo in this country

Canada did not allow the Fox Network in until recently.
Al Jazeera got approval before Fox.

Al Jazeera is no where to be found on Canadian TV. I believe the CRTC approved a license for them to broadcast in Canada but the conditions they attached to their license made it next to impossible for them to operate here.

LOL I've heard O'Reilly only answers "hot" and "suggestive" letters..... way to go... did you send your picture too?

I like Bill... and you make up lies about him...

And FNC was approved with a digital-only license in Canada in 2004.

I have been watching Bill since '04.

Typical Canadians, would never approve a TV station, that questions the typical Canadian "culture"... It took 8 years, since the network launched to get it up here.

EIGHT YEARS!

We've had the FOx network on Canadian TV for years now. You're thinking of FOXNews channel, not their network.

FOX Network has been here for a long time. FNC.. FOX News Channel about 2-3 years.

The network launched in 1996.. and it took 8 years (2006), for it to be launched.. and it was given a digital license at that.

Can't Canadians handle varying media outlets. O gosh! It questions the supposed cultural values of our nation. We can't have that!

And I am a Premium member of billoreilly.com and shared my letter from them, and a billoreilly.com staff member, says only he can sign his emails.. and if his letter was signed, it was him, or an unaurthorized sign.

So Bill read my letter and thanked me!

Ha Ha!

FOX broadcast network, is starting to relate themself more and more with FNC...

The tv shows on FOX have the FNC values.. which I respect.

Look at NBC/MSNBC putting liberal nonsense within their primetime.

Maybe FOX broadcast network will be outlawed in Canada for being conservative...

Fox aired Married with Children, South Park and The Simpsons. Do they portiat consevitive values?

Richard Murdoc should be banned.

I remember an announcement "SOME" months ago, saying that Al Jazeera was now under the
control of a u.s. network, or, perhaps the u.s. government, so that they could have a more balanced
viewpoint, as the u.s. was not getting any "positive" coverage at all from them.
Are you sure "that" did not happen?

Family Guy, American Dad..... these are shows with value? Last I knew, they are Fox programs. And they are among the worst programs on tv today for promoting 'values'. Unless you count spousal abuse, pedophelia, and the gang land style pistol whipping of the family dog to be values you hold near and dear. that being said, the entertainment a network chooses to air is irrelevant to the quality of their news (or what passes as news in american tv).
