Bill O'Reilly worse than Father Coughin of 1930's

Media Researchers at Indiana University have documented that Bill O'Reilly calls a person or a group a derogatory name on the average every 6.8 seconds in his opening editorials. According to Think Progress the researchers used techniques for researching the propaganda content of six months worth of his editorials.
Researchers found that O’Reilly "was prone to inject fear into his commentaries and quick to resort to name-calling. He also frequently assigned roles or attributes — such as ‘villians’ or downright ‘evil’ — to people and groups."
No surprise to anyone except Bill himself.
