Bill O'Reilly, Fox News on Justin Bieber/Kim Kardashian Pictorial: Gross, Inappropriate

by at . Comments

Bill O'Reilly hosts the highest-rated cable news show on television.

As a result, one would hope the Fox News anchor would use such a pulpit to tackle important, practical issues facing the country. Instead, he chimes in on the latest celebrity gossip headlines in order to conjure up controversy and make headlines for himself.

First, he took issue with Jennifer Aniston's comment that science allows older, single women to have a baby these days via in vitro fertilization. O'Reilly referred to this harmless, factual point as "destructive to our society."

Now, the talk show host has set his sights on Justin Bieber and the photo shoot he did for Elle with Kim Kardashian. Said O'Reilly:

"I wanted to be a baseball player [when I was 16]. I didn't want to hang around with Kim Kardashian...I had a baseball bat and a bat and [a pair of] ice skates! That's what I was doing... if a 16-year-old girl was pictured with a 29-year-old man in any of that, he'd be in big trouble."

For Elle

By sitting a few feet in front of Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber is clearly helping to destroy society, right, Bill O'Reilly?

Added Republican strategist Margaret Hoover, a panelist on The O'Reilly Factor: "I think it's gross. It's a 16-year-old having an affair with a celebutante!"

It's actually just a 16-year old sitting next to, and running along the beach with, a celebutante. But why would Fox News let facts get in the way of an imaginary scandal that increases ratings? Sarah Palin doesn't do that with the First Amendment.

There's no reason to think the network that provides her talking points will do so any time soon.

@Mikey T. :I disagree with you. It IS a double standard. A 16 year old girl has just as much right to explore & express her sexuality as a 16 year old boy has to his. And if you're saying that teenage boys are better able to handle sexuality then you're wrong. Physically and emotionally girls USUALLY matutre faster than boys. In this case, I agree with Hilton Hater. Bill O'reily is making a fuss about nothing.

the real question is why is kardashian even near that ugly ass kid stuck in a 12 year olds body

bill is right...the message implied of the pictorial is an older woman seducing a sexually-awakened young boy. this was a bad move for beiber. i can't expect much from kim kardashian who exposed her snatch on camera and being peed on by her moron boyfriend!

@Kellye: Your comparison doesn't make sense. The 16-year old is not the one posing in underwear in this example... your hypothetical miley scenario is the exact OPPOSITE of what's going on here.

@Kellye: That's because 16-year old girls are different than 16-year old boys, especially when it comes to sex and its consequences/effects. Why is it wrong for people to admit that? Just labeling something a "double standard" ignores the fact that some things are a double standard for an appropriate reason.
There's no parent alive that can say he/she does not look at his/her 16-year old son dating differently than he/she looks at his/her 16-year old daughter dating.

Actually, there are also photos of Justin taking pictures of Kim Kardashian while she's posing in lingerie. That is inappropriate, if this was Miley Cyrus posing in lingerie while a a guy 15 years her senior took pictures of her, THG would be all over that like white on rice.

Bill needs to stop using celebs to be relevant. His rating are very misleading, remember when Howard Stern had the highest ratings on radio. when they did the demographics about 42% of his audience hated him but still listened to hear what he would say. The same is true with bill. Hay Bill rent a movie a movie called
"Taxi Driver" and check out Foster with Deniro, don't let your head explode. I am sure Justin will turn out Ok, no damage from Kim. Look at you playing with your bat at that age, might be the reason you got your butt in trouble a couple of years ago for trying to have phone sex with your female co-workers. Then again I thin I read it was also some of the guys at work. But there nothing with that. your not as bad as Glen.............
