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."

I cannot stand Rosie O. & her big mouth! But if you put her next to Blll-O, he is a whole heapin' lot worse! I am FAR more in line with Rosie's politics. Bill-O is just a NUT! A complete sicko! Rosie is obnoxious, militant and hypocritical, but she makes a hell of a lot more sense than WACKED-OUT O'REILLY!

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.

Figures, Bill O'Reilly wants to shut down another person who has ideas contrary to what the GOP Communists want people to express. Absolute hater. This is a free country asshole!

I have said from the very begining that it was all about Iran not Iraq, but we knew we couldn't go into Iran like we did Iraq. We needed to get set up next door to Iran before the s*it hit the fan. They just didn't know how tough the Iraqs where. All they know how to do is fight. I hope the Iranian people come to there sinces about there wacko president before it is too late. Because Iran CAN reach the US with the big bomb.

You blast Star Jones because she was on "The View" for nine years and talked about her stupid wedding for a few months.

But you support an angry, militant, lesbian who shoves her opinion down people's throats every chance she gets! She's self centered and loud.

PS Star Jones is laughing - you bitches!!!!

I actually like to hear people debating differences of opinion - when they can do it in a mature and respectful manner. Rosie just tries to yell and scream over the top of everyone else. It's very immature and unprofessional and I got bored really quick and quit watching. When you can't back up what you say - say it again, louder - that seems to be her motto.

I FEEL SORRY FOR ELIZABETH - SHE IS THE ONLY SANE ONE ON THE SHOW BUT NO MATCH FOR THE OTHERS - I SENSE ROSIE IS A BIT JEALOUS OF HER AND WOULD LOVE DO ONE OF THOSE NEW GIRL KISSING GIRL PHOTO SHOOTS WITH HER. BUT THEN AGAIN, ROSIE DOESN'T LOOK LIKE SHE COULD GET A DEAD PIG TO KISS HER. COME ON ABC RATINGS ARE NOT EVERYTHING!

Do the research? Apparently you need to get your head out of the Twilight Zone and come down to earth. You’re scarring me!

Even though I think Rosie is a fun new ingredient in the recipe for 'The View' .... She has a new platform to spew her views on Iraq. I think ABC should limit her opinions on the war and keep the topic of 'The War' on a limited basis. Yes, I know .... The show IS called 'The View' .... But c'mon people! Poor Barbara Walters is getting waaaaaaaay more than she bargained for with her recent hire of Rosie. People are talking about 'The View', which I am sure helps ratings, but I tape the show and fast forward through Rosie's tyraids lately.

If networks are going to fire people for nutty views, O'Reilly needs to update his resume and get ready to stand in the unemployment line!

Rosie knew yesterday was the last LIVE show before a week & half long break. Look at her blog. She is knowingly provoking every Thursday as Friday shows are pretaped. With this being a very long break, she hurled her MOST outrageous absurd far left theories like the experienced SUCKER PUNCH BULLY she is, then ran away. I have no respect for this coward.
