ON THE NEWS QUIZ TONIGHT ONE OF THE QUESTIONS WAS "WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THE MOVIE ABOUT AUDIE MURPHY?" THEY BOTH MISSED IT AND THEN BILL SAID SEVERAL REALLY NICE THINGS ABOUT AUDIE. HE ALSO TOLD THEM THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THE ANSWER. HE ALSO SAID AUDIE WAS AN AMAZING MAN.

EVA I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. BILL SAID A LOT OF GOOD THINGS ABOUT AUDIE AND SAID HE HAD WROTE ABOUT AUDIE IN ONE OF HIS BOOKS. BILL IS ON RIGHT NOW CENTRAL TIME IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THE NEWS QUIZ AND HEAR WHAT HE SAIDS ABOUT AUDIE. I LIKE BILL MYSELF AND FOX NEWS.

I just watched the replay of the show. He highly praised Audie, and basically chastised the panel for not knowing about Audie, and the name of Audie's autobiographical movie. I read the book and he devoted one of the segments to Audie. I can understand being on the opposite side of the political spectrum from Bill, but to call him an idiot. He's a very smart man. He's definetly no idiot. Kudos to Bill O'Reilly. No doubt he's a great admirer of Audie. This was the second time that I know of that Audie has been the topic of the quiz on the Factor.

I didn't actually call Orally an idiot. It was a generic comment, so lay off!

David, it's "Pinheads and Patriots". Been out for quite a while now, I think it's in paperback.

Thanks. Just looked on Abebooks and bought a 'very good' hardback copy for $1.00, with $2.95 shipping.

I believe you started this with your reply to the original post on this subject , I just reported the facts of what happened on the show. But if you can't stand the heat, you shouldn't be making comments like you did. Especially about someone who truly admires Audie Murphy.

Bob, I apologize if you feel that I insulted your hero. My comment was meant as a generic statement only. YOU mentioned names; I didn't, and I am done with this subject.

I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING WHEN BILL TOLD ABOUT HIS DAD TAKING HIM TO SEE THE MOVIE THAB WHEN BILL WAS A KID. BOB I AGREE WITH YOU THAT BILL REALLY RESPECTS AND ADMIRES AUDIE. ALSO I AGREE WITH YOU THAT BILL IS VERY SMART. BILL IS VERY FAIR AND BALANCE WHEN HE REPORTS THE NEWS. HE REALLY REPECTS OUR MILITARY AND I LIKE THAT ALSO.

What I liked best about what Bill said was, "everybody should know about Audie and what he did in the war." Probably not quoted exactly, but close enough to get the meaning.

No problem Eva, everyone has the right to their own opinion. Bill's not my hero, but I do highly respect him. Audie is one of my hero's and I really appreciate the recognition Bill gives to Audie every now and then on his quiz, and I thank him for including him in his book as one of his patriots. You can tell by what he says about him, that Audie is one of his patriots(heroes).
