Teachers Unite: Time To Give Bill O'Reilly a Lesson in Just How "Cushy" Your Jobs Are

If a quote from Bill O'Reilly's Radio Factor Web site doesn't spur teachers across the country into a united frenzy of letter-writing, then nothing will.

You, your jobs, your work ethics have been attacked, smeared, maligned, besmirched, spun out of control and flat out lied about by the no-spin meister.

From "The Demise of Ward Churchill" by Bill O'Reilly, coming to a newspaper near you on Sunday: "College professors may have cushier jobs than the rest of us, but they also have a responsibility to tell the truth."

If college professors have cushier jobs than the rest of us when they are dealing with a bunch of post-adolescent I-know-better-than-you; I'd-rather-be-anywhere-than-here; and, don't-bother me-with-the-facts, because I'm too drunk, or too hungover, or too busy looking up your skirt, or too busy looking at the bulge in your pants, wise-ass kids...then Bilge-O's right, they do have it cushier than the rest of us.

College and university professors have to put up with all the crap that's slung at them by the students they teach, the parents and school administrators, and all the while they are constantly fighting to keep their jobs by publishing, publishing, publishing. Publishing to the point where it's amazing they have any time to teach anybody anything... whether it's the truth or not.

If, as you say, Bill, they "have a responsibility to tell the truth"...then so do you!

You have an even GREATER responsibility to tell the truth!!!

Your first responsibility is to tell the truth! The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth...just as if you were in a court of law.

Why? You might ask, Bill "Mr. Twister" O'Reilly who still doesn't get it, not even after others have repeatedly pointed out the errors of your ways.

Answer: Because you are one of the priviledged few who has access to the public airwaves, paid for by the tax payers.

Answer: You reach a far larger audience than ONE professor.

Answer: Because you have the microphone, people believe you, no matter what driveling lies flow out of your big fat mouth.

You lied about Daily KOS being an evil, hate-filled, Nazi-mongering site, which was proven in several columns by Steve Young in both Op-edNews and the Huffington Post.

You claimed that you never heard of when a caller suggested you check it out as a prime example of a right wing hate-filled site.

Young pointed out that on the day you and your so-called liberal sidekick, Lis Weihl, couldn't find any vicious postings by commenters during a three minute commercial break, he found four such postings in a two minute search of the site.

Young also made it crystal clear for your edification, that your former playmate at Fox News and good buddy at the White House, Press Secretary Tony Snow, was a frequent contributor to Free Republic.
