Fox News host Bill O’Reilly says the fall from grace of Rep. Anthony Weiner was more than his personal quandary, “the entire liberal movement in America has been damaged.”
“There are very few people who can go out and effectively promote left-wing views in the media these days. In the House, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Dennis Kucinich they do that; in the Senate, there is really nobody,” O’Reilly said Wednesday.
“Well, now Mr. Weiner no longer available — and the liberal propaganda machine is taking a huge hit. Left still has reliable friends in the media, of course,” he said. “But usually those press outlets speak to their own. Not too many conservative or independents watch MSNBC.
“So if liberal America wants to persuade independent people that their cause is correct, they have very few options left — and that is apparent in a new Rasmussen poll which says 54 percent of likely U.S. voters believe President[Barack] Obama is more liberal than they are,” O’Reilly continued.
“Just 24 percent say their political views are similar to the president's.
“That's a huge divide and it's growing. Like him or not, Anthony Weiner was a passionate spokesperson for the left. And there is no one available to replace him,” he said. “Thus the Weiner story becomes far more than a congressman blowing up his own career. The entire liberal movement in America has been damaged.”
