“Bull” O’Reilly Discusses Governor Palin on ‘Leno’

Posted by Adrienne Ross on February 23, 2012

By Adrienne Ross –

Tuesday night, Bill O’Reilly was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. They discussed politics, among other things. O’Reilly did what he usually does: offer his perspective based on…his perspective. So not much was new there, but when Leno asked O’Reilly a question about Governor Palin, my ears perked up. How would he respond? Remember, the Governor has made a few appearances on The Factor, which came to a halt after the time she basically told him to stop interrupting her and let her answer a question. Those who are familiar with O’Reilly know he usually does most of the talking while his guests try to figure out why he invited them on if he wasn’t going to allow them to speak. Until Governor Palin indicated he needed to stop yapping, I had never heard anyone take a firm stand on Bill’s habitual interruptions. That was Governor Palin’s last appearance on his show, until recently. Perhaps it was sheer coincidence. Who knows? What we do know, though, is that after that day, he whined and complained for some time about that appearance and was less then complimentary when speaking about her–more so than usual.

Bill O’Reilly’s response Tuesday night can simply be described as dismissive and condescending. I know you’re thinking, “And this is surprising how?” It’s not, but it does afford an opportunity to once again point out some things.

Here’s part of the exchange:

Leno: Is Sarah Palin pretty much been eclipsed from all of this? Is she not a voice in any of this anymore?

O’Reilly: She has her niche audience, but the Governor is happy where she is on Fox News Channel making a fortune and shooting moose or whatever she shoots. [He laughs.]

First, did Bill actually hear Jay’s question because he certainly didn’t answer it? Leno asked if Governor Palin has a voice of influence in this political process. (It was not until after Bill responded that question that Leno asked about whether someone might “bring her in.”) Bill’s answer is that she is making a fortune and shooting moose. Really? Why didn’t he answer the question Leno asked? Was he too eager to promote his own narrative? Also, one thing has nothing to do with the other, does it? One can be influential and work for Fox News at the same time, can’t she? Isn’t that what they expect from their analysts? I have a hard time imagining that if the same question had been asked about Charles Krauthammer, for example, O’Reilly would have responded in similar fashion.

Second, enough of this making a fortune thing. If people think that Governor Palin would sell out for money, they’ve missed it. They’ve missed her character and her history. Remember, she walked away from a good-paying job to expose corruption in Alaska. As she says, “In politics, you’re either eating well or sleeping well.” She’s not for sale. She doesn’t suffer from a lust for money, and making money has nothing to do with her ability to impact the national scene.

Bill O’Reilly somehow relegates Governor Palin to the position of hunter-gatherer, thereby disqualifying her from being able to make a difference. We know Governor Palin is a hunting enthusiast, and we certainly have no problem with that. However, his condescending suggestion that she’s too busy loving hunting to have any real power is laughable. It continues to baffle me how people respond to and treat a former vice presidential nominee who offered herself up to serve her country. That’s his answer about the influence of the first woman on a Republican ticket in a presidential/vice presidential campaign? Bill, you can do better, can’t you?

His eagerness to dismiss the Governor also does not jive with the facts, and the facts illustrate that our presidential candidates seek Governor Palin’s endorsement, that she can’t go anywhere without someone poking a microphone in her face, that she’s asked who people should vote for in primary and caucus states, that she’s been questioned about a brokered convention, that she’s been asked repeatedly to reconsider her October 5th decision, that Newt Gingrich is on record as wanting her to be a part of a Gingrich administration, that she brought down the house at CPAC, that she went to New York and did a plethora of interviews with people who wanted her take on this primary season, that phrases she’s coined, like “fundamental restoration of America,” routinely come out of Mitt Romney’s mouth–who’s the purported heir to President Obama’s throne, and that causes like exposing crony capitalism all of a sudden became a topic of discussion in debates after she brought it front and center in current political discourse. Who’s lacking a voice?

Furthermore, how many can boast of the intensity of support she has–loyal supporters who would go through hell and high water for her if she just said the word? Which brings me to my next point: this “niche” that O’Reilly refers to when asked about her influence…perhaps we should take a look at something: O’Reilly, who constantly reminds us of how wonderful he is and how many people tune in to watch The Factor, has a little over 511,000 Facebook friends. The washed up, money-grubbing, moose hunter from Alaska has almost 3.3 million. You do the math, Bill–and cut the bull.

Sarah Palin Owns The Night

Posted by Gary P Jackson on March 4, 2010

What an incredible time Sarah Palin is having.

Lets see, Sarah was a huge hit on late night TV, the candidate she endorsed, Texas Governor Rick Perry, won the Republican primary in a landslide, and her chief rival for the 2012 presidential nomination told the world that yeah, she was indeed made of presidential timber!

Does it get any better than this?

First the fun stuff. Sarah was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night. This is her second appearance on the show in just a few months. Readers will recall Sarah made a surprise stop to give William Shatner a good natured hard time. Sarah rocked the house that night giving Shatner a taste of his own medicine in a very funny bit.

Anyhow, this was a more substantive visit. Not a lot of new ground was touched on, but Jay has become a very good interviewer and certainly made the segments fun and entertaining. For her part, Sarah was just on. Sharp, vibrant, and funny.

Sarah was part of the opening of the show, making a bit of fun of herself with the “old school cue cards.”

Once introduced for her segments, wearing a smart jacket, blue jeans, and her patented high heels, Sarah walked out as the band played “Everyday People.” As always, she was wearing a big smile and brought out her positive message.

She managed to make some great points and of course talked about the need for common sense government. After the commercial break, Sarah tried something a little different, a bit of stand up. She was quite good. I’m not sure Jay has anything to worry about, but it was obvious she was having fun and the audience loved it. Check it out:

As expected Leno, with Sarah on, won the night, ratings wise, again beating out David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel. It just so happened Mitt Romney was Letterman’s guest opposite Sarah. Some had dubbed this the “Nielsen Primary” trying to play it all up. I rather feel sorry for Governor Romney whose staff who got him booked on Letterman. What were they thinking?

From TV by the Numbers’ website:

Leno (With Palin) Beats Letterman Badly Again On Night Two

The second night of Jay Leno’s Tonight Show v 2.0 dominated late night again with a 4.6 household rating/12 share in early household metered markets data from 11:30p-12:30a to Letterman’s The Late Show 3.1 rating/ 8 share. ABC’s Nightline had a 3.0 rating / 7 share and Jimmy Kimmel Live trailed with a 1.7 rating / 5 share.

Adults 18-49 data:

* “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (1.6 rating in adults 18-49) led the time period over CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman” (1.0) and ABC’s “Nightline (0.9) in fast national “live plus same day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research. The “Tonight” margin over “Late Show” in fast-national adult 18-49 rating is 60 percent.

This of course was just one of the big things that happened last night though. Fittingly, yesterday was Texas Independence Day, celebrating freedom from Mexico, and her birth as a Nation. As if to put an exclamation point on this, Texas held it’s primaries yesterday.

This was a real match up. You had the popular incumbent Governor, Rick Perry, who is the longest serving Governor in Texas History. Perry was Lt. Governor and assumed the position of Governor when George W. Bush was elected President. Perry is a solid conservative and has done a great job for Texas.

He was challenged by Washington insider, and Senior U.S. Senator, Kay Baily Hutchison, a RINO, as well as Ron Paul clone Debra Medina, who was never a serious contender.

This made for an interesting race indeed. On Rick Perry’s side, you had business people, law enforcement, Tea Party groups, and well, everyday people. He also had Sarah Palin.

Hutchison had the entire Republican establishment and the state’s major newspapers behind her. Yes, she actually touted that endorsement! And by Republican establishment, I mean both Presidents named Bush, Dick Cheney, and so on.

If there was ever a showdown between Conservatives and Washington elites, this was it. In Texas, this was seen as our continued independence vs losing our state sovereignty.

Perry won in a landslide.

This is just one more thing Sarah has on her resume that Barack Obama does not, candidates she endorses win elections!

But wait, there’s more!

While this didn’t happen last night, Mitt Romney appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and when asked, exclaimed that yes, Sarah Palin was qualified to be President.

Now granted, this isn’t huge news. I mean of course Sarah Palin is qualified to be President, but coming from the establishment and media favorite, Mitt Romney, it was delicious, and as Josh Painter points out, it made the folks heads explode over at the Barack Obama Network! That’s always fun to watch. Read more about that here.

Palin scheduled for Leno return

Posted by loricalabrese on February 28, 2010

Jay Leno faces an uphill battle to reclaim his spot as host of “The Tonight Show.” Leno’s return Monday night has many people wondering if he can win back viewers, barely eight months after Conan O’Brien’s debut.

NBC is hoping to see higher ratings and has been busing preparing and lining up guests. Jamie Foxx will join Leno for his first show on March 1, alongside Olympic medallist Lindsey Vonn and musician Brad Paisley.

Sarah Palin and Olympic snowboarder Shaun White will be welcomed on March 2.

Palin’s last appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien garnered a huge response as she graced the stage during an interpretative reading of “Going Rogue” by William Shatner.  Palin tackled her own reading of Shatner’s autobiography “Up Till Now.”

NBC said Monday that other guests set for Leno’s first week back include Olympic champion Apolo Anton Ohno, Simon Cowell, Kristen Stewart, Avril Lavigne, Morgan Freeman and Matthew McConaughey.
