We have good opportunities to keep the heat on Bill O’Reilly this coming week. On Monday, he is scheduled to appear on ABC’s The View:
We can’t imagine that O’Reilly’s insensitive comments about the rape and murder of 18-year old Jennifer Moore — and his subsequent stalking of Amanda Terkel — would go over well with The View’s audience. (You can email The View here.)
O’Reilly needs to be held accountable for his “ambush journalism,” which is an effort to target, harasses, and intimidate his opponents. O’Reilly’s producers have also accosted approximately 40 other victims. Last week, O’Reilly said on his show that Amanda was “certainly a villain” and referred to all of us at ThinkProgress as “insects.”
Our campaign is asking O’Reilly’s corporate sponsors to issue clear statements against O’Reilly’s mafia-style harassment operation. Over 20,000 of you have joined our campaign. Thank you for all that you’ve done and will continue to do.
