Bill O'Reilly's Propaganda


The Spin Zone.

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly calls a person or a group a derogatory name on average once every 6.8 seconds during the “Talking Points Memo” portion of his cable news show. This is a much higher use of name-calling than the popular but controversial radio priest of the 1930s, Father Charles Coughlin. These results come from a study of O’Reilly’s editorials by three Indiana University researchers using early 20th Century propaganda analysis techniques.
