Bill O’Reilly inspired a post I wrote called, A Word From the Heart https://athingirl.com/2017/05/02/ that had little to do with him, but the powers-that-be, have been harassing me, because his name was even mentioned.
First of all, I don’t share the shortsidedness where he’s concerned, and not the least ashamed to say, I like him…even now.
He’s unafraid to say what he feels or thinks, even if it causes a global uproar. You may not like his style, but one can’t argue with the man’s straightforwardness, a trait worth admiring.
That’s not to say, I’ve always agreed with everything he said and did on his show, The Factor, but agreeing to disagree is the American way, or at least it should be.
As fas as the allegations against him are concerned, you can’t tell a woman she’s sexy these days, for fear she’s on the phone to her lawyer.
I’m not saying there’s no truth to what he’s been accused of, after all, I wasn’t there, but do know his roster of enemies is vast, and if you’ve read one of his first four books, he’s open about being hated and hunted, the New York Times heading the pack.
Everyone assumed O’Reilly, after he was let go from Fox, would come out swinging like a lion with sore paws…but he didn’t, actually responding with grace, rather than the bravado that was expected, even praising Fox.
See, grace never fails to impress me, doesn’t matter where it comes from, or from whom.
When he said he was disheartened, so was I…for him, for me, for the world in general looking for the good.
See, there’s good in everyone.
