    You really wouldn't expect O'Reilly or anyone at Fox to like AJ or Al Gore. Firstly, AJ will be a competitor to Fox. Secondly, it will undoubtedly not share Fox's stance on ME affairs, although I very much doubt AJ will be as opinion-based as Fox. Thirdly, who cares what O'Reilly thinks? This is the man who is convinced that Christianity is not a religion.

    Since when is Bill O'Reilly against captialism?

    The blatant comments by Bill O'Reilly saying that Al-Jazeera is anti-American are ridiulous. Al Gore did not do anything wrong and no matter how biased (and apparantly racist) Bill O'Reilly's comments are it does not make them true.

    Who cares what Al Gore does?
    Redneck, hillbilly, fundie, Bible thumper, cracker, split tails, geezer, loon, xenophobe, islamaphobe, and homophobe are not words of tolerance.

    Comments on the nature of AJ, the buyer, aside, the point that tax avoidance was involved in the sale's timing was a valid point.

    Those that assert otherwise are simply using the same argument as usual, that taxes are bad (if placed on them) but needed too, smart (rich?) folks will avoid paying them and all pay as little as possible, even while preaching paying one's "fair share" is good.

    The sale was, I think, dated 1/2/2013 yet will likely avoid the increased capital gain taxation due to clever accounting techniques.

    The point that one can be said to be for extra taxation, yet will do all in their power to avoid it was valid.

    That's certainly been Murdoch's attitude to paying tax.

    O'Reilly is right on with this one.

    I'm indifferent towards Al Gore or at least I was until this.

    I'm not a fan of either man. In this particular case, O'Reilly is nothing more than a hatchet man in search of a sapling -- which is pretty funny, considering how much real news is out there, begging to be covered or commented on.

    I don't care who Al Gore sells what to, provided he does it legally and pays the appropriate taxes, and neither should anybody else. It's nobody else's business.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Who cares if they are or if they aren't? This is business, not social hour.
