Bill Maher vs. Bill O'Reilly

September 30, 2010 on Fox News


  1. Bill O'Reilly gets pwnd, AGAIN XD. 

    Damn I love Bill Maher, he tells it like it is.

  2. Bill O'Reilly say love your neighbour and don,t call them stupid if they don't agree with you politically. 

    some needs to edit in examples of bills rage towards his guests he didn't agree when he says that.

  3. How do they get away with calling it Fox "News"?  That's what I want to know.  There's no news on there at all, it's all balderdash.  I don't care about "love your neighbor as yourself", Bill O'Reilly is a dolt.

  4. Another fine addition to the liberal media blog.  Both these Bill's are idiots, regardless of religious affiliation.  

  5. I'd have to say O'Reilly did better in this one.  It helped O'Reilly that he came off as the calm loving guy, and Mahar came off as the asshole.

    "60% of the American people think the Noah's Ark story is true".  Yeah, what percentage think vaccines cause autism?

    Hey, I agree with Mahar on the point being debated, but that doesn't change the fact that I think O'Reilly got the TKO.

  6. @Rich: Indeed... the unedited version would have been more suitable for this blog, since of course, Fox edited out most of Maher's points regarding religion.

  7. O and BTW I think it was a good debate... uninformed/slanted equally on both sides.  Something I might like to listen in on in a bar or something.  I would say it was a draw, or that Maher came out a bit ahead in the end, at least in the unedited version.  Anyone notice the unedited version portrayed O' as even more moderate?

  8. Yeah I love O'Reilly's hypocracy: He says love your neighbour, but is quite happy to call people 'pinheads' when he doesn't agree with them.

    Seriously, Bill O'Reilly is such a dimwitted naive fool it's entertaining. Bill Maher is certainly aggressive towards believers, but you know - you can't make an omlette without breaking some eggs.

  9. Bill Maher needs to work on his dealing with the  "but that's the old testament" defense.  It is common for "Christians" like O'Liely to rebuff questions of the Bible by saying that the immorality that is there is all in the O.T. and that their New Testament is the book to be using.  But with a bit of knowledge and preparedness, Bill Maher will be able to send this lob pitch of an argument into the bleachers.  I know he is more a comedian than a debater, but being that his comedy often comes from trying to show the oddities of a large percentage of human thought, he might win a few more supporters over if he can wack Bill O's nonsense out of the park. 

  10. It's the rightwing that is trying to shove religion down people's naturally we will hear more stupid things from the right.

  11. I didn't know that Christine O'Donnell was a young earther. (Audio at 1:30) But I'm not surprised.

  12. Bill Maher could have defended the fact of evolution, instead of just saying "we don't know either", falling into O'Reilly's trap that both sides require faith. Basically the Christian argument is, "you're as bad as we are".

    O'Reilly dismisses the "pre-Jesus" Old Testament stories as merely alegorical, yet he still buys into New Testament stories of virgin births, walking on water, water into wine, healing blindness & leprosy, and of course the resurection.

  13. The O'Reilly Factor is not a news segment. It's political commentary.

  14. Thanks for clearing that up for me, I never noticed.  The left has an ideology too.  Both sides use them to try to control people.

  15. Maher is almost as uninformed as O'Reilly.

    Watching Maher just brings it home how outstanding Hitchens is.

  16. As evidence to support your point, here's one of the top comments on the youtube page for this video:

    "Surely Republicans like O'Reilly should hate jesus afterall didnt he say a camel is more likely to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man is to passing through the gates of heaven, which totally contradicts the capitilism O'Reilly stands for"

    Yeah, and that's Maher in a nut shell (emphasis on the 'nut').  I'm not going to trade my idiot religious overlords for idiot socialist ones.  6 to one, half dozen the other.

  17. The Bible is not supposed to have been written by God.

  18. Maher lost another great opportunity to TKO this guy

  19. Well, the subject was Atheism vs. Christianity. It's pretty dangerous to bring up evolution as a counter to religious nonsense; you'd be insinuating that they are on some equal level. The "I don't know" is in response to whether there is a God or not. Evolution is immaterial.

  20. Don't mock people because you think they are stupid?

    Bill O'Reilly showing what kind of hypocrite he is again. How many times has he name-called a guest on his show a freagin "pinhead" which is quite obviously him mocking someone because he thinks they are stupid?

  21. Of course they do, but one of those clearly isn't with the likes of Maher the destruction of the seperation of church and state.

  22. I'm sorry, but there's a lot more evidence that some socialist principles work than what Libertarians want. 

    No false equivalences please.

  23. Nobody on here should be surprised how Andrew idolizes fiscal conservatism. He just replaces religious mantras with hateful diatribes about leftist policies. He's chidlish in his approach and unthinking in his stance. Just let him be satisfied in his individualism and self-service.

  24. Andrew, How exactly does that quote bolster any of the points prior to your comment? The fact that Jesus contradicts capitalism is hardly a secret, and 'thinking christians' recognize this and visibly wrestle with it.

    Since when are the inconsistencies in a religion evidence for or against capitalism, socialism, or any other economic system you may wish to choose?..

  25. The wuote was pulled directly from the YouTube comments for this video.  it's evidence of exactly what Kory Graber was saying, that both are idiots and the left has a religious ideology that they're pushing too.  if we want to talk about politics, then we can have as rational people.  But so long as anti-religion sentiment is constantly and openly conflated with left wing political views by athesits and lefties alike, that can't happen.

    When you start using bashing religion as a means of attacking people who you disagree with politically for entirely different reasons than their religion, that's dishonest.  How many of these videos recently are taking pot shots at christine o'donnell (somethign Maher does in this video)?  How many tiems are we goign to bash Sarah Palin for her faith but, not mind when Obama sites his Christian faith as reasoning for his opposing gay marriage?  Or Joe Bidens numerous appeals to faith regarding almost everything?

    Fox News is becoming a straw man against any conservative or libertarian view.  The lie is that if Bill O'Reilly is an idiot then all right wingers must be idiots, and instead of arguing for the validity of each policy decision, you jsut have to prove that 1) Fox is against it and 2) Fox is full of idiots, like that's somehow the same as proving a point.  This is two idiots arguing to hear themselves think, but it's clearly being interpretted ny the common "thinking Christian" and "free thinking atheist" as meaning something that capitalism sucks (just read the YouTube comments).

    You want a real disucssion about fiscal policy, then fine, but this is just as back handed and dirty as the bias propaganda that Fox puts out, and one doe snot jsutify another.  I'm not frustrated because I don't agree witht he message, I get frustrated with propaganda even when I agree with it (which is clear from my reaction to other videos).  Try being a little bit objective and actually doing some of that "free thinking" that we're supposed to be all about.

  26. " <span>Bill O'Reilly gets pwnd, AGAIN XD. "</span>
    <span>No, he hasn't. Bill O'reilly is refusing to get pwnd and, that's why he has never been pwnd.</span>
    <span>It's a great, fully resistive philosophy that is running his world  and no size of a baseball bat landing on his skull can change that.</span>
    <span>People like B.O'R. never lose the debate. They simply refuse the losing outcome of the debate.</span>
    <span>That's why religion exists. And, the tyrants. and, crazy ideologists.</span>
    <span>Never ever give up. Never ever let them to get to your brain.</span>
    <span>So far, they are on the top of the game.</span>

  27. True.
    Don't forget, Bill Maher is great if it comes to monologues.
    If it comes to word feud,  phrase against phrase - he's somehow soft and indecisive.
    On the other hand - B.O'R. is a master in his own class. It looks like he has a riposte for everything his opponent's saying. And, he does this with the variety of smirk smiles, intonations of his voice, hand gestures, shoulder gestures.
    He's honestly earning his millions from Faux News.

    In other words - B. O'R refuses to be beaten in the debate. That's all.
