This story disgusts me. O'Reilly claims that he is a conservative and is against gov't waste but he has the police dept (a local gov't agency) follow 1 of their own around not in suspicion of committing a crime but for a personal issue that the police should not be involved with whatsoever. O'Reilly is a hyprocryte and needs to sit down and shut up. Mabey if he used more of his energy being a better husband instead of being a complete jerk he would not be in the situation that he is now.

In my state adultery is a crime. Maybe, he is trying to build a case so he don't have to pay out his arse in alimony and whatever else she can take from him... :confused0024:

the man being investigated is in the wrong if he is getting together with a married woman. That in itself is making himself as well as his unit looking bad. Also there are plenty of police departments that have divisions with the pure purpose to look into these types of things.

And its kind of weird how well you think you know him and how he interacts as a husband. While many can't stand some of the crap coming out of his mouth no one has the right to comment on his marriage as no one knows at all how her personal life is like. Because I know about a lot of the posts we've seen on here of you or many other members does that really give me the right to make assumptions on how a members marriage or personal life is like?

You are absolutely right I don't know O'Reilley on a personal level and based on the way he is on tv I would not care to know him on a personal level. The point I was trying to make is that there was something going in his household that made his wife upset and go running to the arms of another man. None of us have any idea what thay may have been. I also do not appreciate the fact that he used his money and clout to get the police who serve the entire community as a whole and not just him to get involved in his domestic dispute. To be perfectly honest I don't feel sorry for the guy at all and I hope that despite all of this that his wife still takes him to the cleaners.

That's what a divorce is for...if you are not happy with some one you divorce them you don't cheat on them...

And as for the bold type sentence...that shows you have no rational thinking at all...

good for him? really? calling in favors and using fame or power to get internal affairs to look into infidelity? Sounds like an easy case of misappropriated man hours to me. Whomever let O'Reilly talk him into making his officers investigate something like this should get the axe. True adultery is considered illegal in some areas. I find it absurd. My personal opinions aside, I doubt there is much legal precedence of any type of law enforcement investigating it specifically on it's own. For someone to waste tax dollars to be a P.I. looking into adultery is a complete joke. O'Reilly should have called the show Cheaters.

The point isn't really if it's wrong or not. It's if detectives should be spending time looking into a wife's sexual habits outside of her marriage. In my opinion it's no. It has nothing to do with the morality of it. If this law enforcement unit is putting man hours to look into this then anyone in that jurisdiction should be able to have police investigate if they believe there husband or wife is cheating. If a normal citizen called in a complaint such as that to their local police station, they'd be laughed off the phone in seconds more than likely.

I don't think you can claim to know the condition of their relationship. Who knows why she cheated if she did in fact cheat. To place blame on him isn't right in my book. Bringing up claims that you do sort of cheapens your argument as to why it's wrong and quite frankly distracts opponents from your legitimate objections to the action.

I'll agree that some of his headlines lately are purposefully meant to stir things up. Personally I'd love to see things posted impartially (at least headlines) to get more people to come in and give their opinions. Using wording similar to this headline takes away form the debate of the exact topic itself and just continues the typical skirmishes from past disagreements.

That said, I'd like to hear your opinion on the story itself and not Veg's headline.

While not necessarily the wisest way to get info, O'Reilly did nothing wrong. He asked his cop friend to get info for him on another cop. The wrong occured when the cop obliged him. If I ask a cop to do something unethical, while the request shows lack of character on my part, no actual wrong is done until the act is consumated.

And for those who will think I am defending my side's mouthpiece, I don't care for O'Reilly. I don't watch him or for that matter, I don't watch FoxNews at all.

With that said, this source of info is shady at best. A guy, who knows a guy told the writer all about it? Is that what it takes to be a news source these days?

I think O'Reilly is the most reasonable person on Fox. Oh, and I also agree with your post. Though I don't think Bill is 100% absolved of any type of wrongdoing, but:

A. It's minimal
B. To give him the benefit of the doubt, sometimes stressful situations cause us to do things that we normally wouldn't. Bill was clearly going through a rough time, and to be honest, I'm not sure how I'd act if I were in his situation. So I don't feel the I have the right to stand in judgement.

but again, that isn't a point, thats merely an opinion that you think that he did something to "upset her enough to go into the arms of another man." She could just be a promiscuous woman or could just be looking for more attention, who knows her reasons

Also as has been said before there are departments just like this in police units all over the country thats main purpose is to look into possible infidelity and domestic infractions, they do that now so that they don't have to deal with even more disturbing or violent domestic abuse issues later. This is something most major towns have that is available to any civilian.

Not really. His point is that right now Obama is in the can. Every aspect of our government and economy is in trouble, so the logical liberal response is to make O'Reilly's marital issues headline news and try to distract us.

You have to admit, it is ironic that this "big" story came out about 24 hours before the news that no net jobs were added last month (the first time since 1945).

Thank You !
I can't belive that this country is getting stripped off everything it was founded on and people think that a news/political voice personal problems is a big deal . They should be more focused on the party they support and the damage that they are doing to this country .

I'm not defending his wife. I have a problem with any law enforcement agency that is ran on tax dollars investigating a couples sexual habits. There's no need unless it has to do with solving a case some how. Investigating an officer because O'reilly has friends in high places is not a reason.

And to Intimidator... Are we not allowed to discuss things outside of Obama in this forum? I think this is a valid topic no matter how is president or what political affiliation O'Reilly has.

You guys are hilarious to think that a story about O'Reilly is going to distract from Obama's issues. Most people can discuss multiple topics. I know I can. Why can't you guys weigh in on the topic rather than just say that it's a distraction? If it's a waste of tax payers money it's waste of tax payers money no matter the party affiliation in my book.

because it has to do with a government agency that is wasting tax payer money investigating who someone's wife is sleeping with.
