Bill O’Reilly would be the first person to admit he’s somewhat of a sensationalist. In fact, he did so in his Sunday 60 Minutes interview about his new book, Killing Jesus, which is part of the Fox News host’s Killing series (along with Killing Lincoln and Killing Kennedy), which has already netted him something like $10 million. But did you know he only wrote these controversial titles because the Holy Spirit demanded it of him?
Is ole’ Bill getting soft in his old age? Back in the day, the conservative Fox host would take up the cause with the fundamentalist Christian group One Million Moms (“Who Hate Everything” is usually left off their title) in their boycott of JCPenney for using Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson.
Instead, in an editorial in today’s New York Post (as well as a recent episode of his show) Bill O’Reilly defends Ms. DeGeneres, scolds the Moms, and even suggests that they set their sights on a non-gay pop culture icon more deserving of their scorn.
