O'Reilly to ABC -- Fire "Nutty" Rosie!

3/30/2007 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comAnd you thought Rosie-Trump got nasty? FOX News' designated flamethrower, Bill O'Reilly, slammed Rosie on "The O'Reilly Factor" last night, calling her "nutty" and "irresponsible," and suggesting that ABC should fire O'Donnell for her provocative remarks about Iran and the war in Iraq. Look out below.

Rosie, who was not a guest on O'Reilly's show, has been anything but gentle in expressing her feelings toward U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, going so far as to suggest on her blog that the recent kidnapping of British sailors was designed by the U.S. and Britain to help escalate hostilities against Iran. On "The View" this week, Rosie also challenged viewers to Google "Gulf of Tonkin," a reference to the controversial naval attacks in Southeast Asia that led to the U.S.'s increased involvement in the Vietnam conflict.

Now, O'Reilly is calling for ABC to be "held accountable" for Rosie's remarks, especially after the network axed Bill Maher post-9/11 for suggesting that the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center were "courageous." ABC, for its part, had no comment this morning.

On today's "View," Rosie was mute about O'Reilly's broadside, but the show was taped before last night's "Factor."

First time posting, and I'm emerging from the sidelines to support Rosie on this, 100%. No other story would get me to post other than this, because this is important people. Pay attention to what she's saying and do the research. **This woman knows what's going on,** she's got a clue, and people like Bill O'Reilly are puppets working on behalf of the powers that be. Of course he's going to attack her...he works for them, and it's going to be spun, as usual, into a "Liberal vs. Conservative" issue, right wing left wing, blah blah blah. It's not about liberal vs. conservative, it's about the American public waking up and getting the truth about what really happened on 9/11. **You have been lied to, people.* There is a whole 9/11 truth movement that's trying to get the message out there, but Puppets like Bill O'Reilly with their big TV shows and prominant time slots are given front and center attention where he's allowed to mad dog whomever dares question anything going on in this reality, all so you will be distracted from hearing that truth. **Look at that man.** Does he look human to you? No. Sorry. Puppet all the way. Robot. Pod Person. Whatever you want to call it. He's not real people. There is an agenda here.

And if you're somebody who would automatically dismiss what Rosie is saying without even doing the research, spouting brainwashing propaganda about "We have to support what our government is doing" and "It's dangerous to not support our President and troops" like Rosie's cohost Elizabeth Hasselback, then you're a Puppet too. Period. Pod Person. Not real. Background filler character out there spouting what the powers that be want you to spout so the rest of the sheep will follow along. Real humans listen to both sides of the story. Puppets knee jerk react and serve the system and attack anybody who dares to ask questions.

Do the research people if you don't believe me. It's out there - videos that show a version of events that grossly contradict what you've been told. Discrepancies in the story, plot holes that don't add up. There's a massive coverup going on, time to become informed.

Barbara Walters need to wake up and realize that Rosie O'Donnell is ruining her good name and image. She has brought "The View" down tremendously. Just the fact that Rosie in on makes people not want to watch the show.. Noboby wants to hear or see her anywhere.

****Barbara wake up and try and bring your show out of the mud... get rid of that nasty bitch..

Rosie is obnoxious! She is loud and talks over everyone else, even if you are in agreement with her. She is self-centered and controlling. Barbara should be embarassed. By letting blowhard Rosie control the show like her own pulpit, all of Barbara's credentials are going down the drain. Rosie so far out there! She hates heterosexuals, Patriots, and people who think for themselves. Go away Rosie! Your "View" is crazy!

ABC should be held accountable for Rosie because she will not wear a ear piece on air to hear the booth, so that means they are letting her have free control of what happens. I don't agree with the war but as a democrat I will say the dems. that are in office now are going to kill the democrat party.

Rosie will spew anything to get her America-Hating view to be accepted by the mindless drones that watch this mindless show. "Gulf of Tonkin"...Google it" was her phrase on the view. Why dosnet she "Google" how women...especially gay women...are treated in muslim countries. How well could she live her life in Iran which she seems to prefer over the US or UK. She would be hung so fast...and not upside down either.

Why doesnt she or her liberal army who need for Americas moral structure to be destroyed so that they can openly live their do/say anything goes lifestyle go live in Iran for a month. We would have a few thousand less nut jobs running in the streets here for sure. Rosie is completly crazy. She has some serious mental problems. I find it funny that she was all over Fox for capitalizing on the mentaly challenged on American Idol, when ABC is doing the same thing on the View. Taking advantage of an obviously mentaly deranged person for ratings. Sick.

Everything Rosie does is simply for shock value. If she really believes the things that she says then she's worse off than I thought. She is a perfect example of why the folks on the left are not taken seriously. The women needs to educate herself and stop looking like the fool she is. Way to call her out Bill!

Most of the time Rosie comes across as a fruitcake, extreme leftist. Reason, logic, and facts are foreign concepts to her. George Clooney is on the far left, but in public he doesn't rant, go on about imagined conspiracies, or treat others with contempt. Clooney tries to advance his interests with dignity and respect. Rosie needs an intervention from those, who have brains and dignity.

O'Reilly is right, Rosie should be fired. I feel sorry for poor Elizabeth who has to listen to Rosie's warped point of view everyday.

Thanks, Bill. The view is legally responsible for its agents -in this case-Rossie for their remarks. It needs to take responsibility and finally let that "liability" go
