O’Reilly attacks ‘Simpsons’ as ‘pinheads’ after Fox “#1 with racists” jibe
Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly got his revenge on The Simpsons Monday but didn’t deny the charge that his network is popular with racists.
On Sunday’s episode of the long-running cartoon series, a Fox News helicopter carrying a network executive reads, “Fox News: Not Racists, But #1 With Racists.”
After the Fox News executive steps out of the helicopter into the head of the Statue of Liberty, the aircraft goes into a tailspin and crashes. The pilot can be heard saying, “It’s not fair, we’re unbalanced.”
The executive conducts a secret meeting where his team plans a new health care scare that will send their ratings through the roof.
Gawker called The Simpsons episode one of the most anti-Republican ever.
The Simpsons is aired by the Fox broadcast network. Newscorp owns the Fox broadcast network as well as Fox News Channel.
“Continuing to bite the hand that feeds part of it, Fox broadcasting once again allows its cartoon characters to run wild,” O’Reilly complained on his Monday show.
“Pinheads? I believe so,” O’Reilly concluded.
