Via on Nov 24, 2010

    I'm a bit weary of the racist accusations, especially when focused on TV stations. People get pissy on matters of race, so stop it dammit and shut your face. Opinions stink, it's what you verbally think. #1 with racists? You must mean WKKK FM Birmingham.

      I'm a bit weary of racism. And PCism. Hopefully we can meet in the middle—with a sense of respect for diversity and space for humor. ~ Waylon

    Kristie L Lol. The simpsons have made fun of their parent company more than just that one time. Curious that o'reilly takes exception only when it's making fun of Fox news as opposed to the network as a whole.
