[siren] bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. [captioning made possible by fox news channel] captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the real deal about michael jackson. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. there is an old saying you can't choose your family. and it's true. the family of michael jackson honored his memory today in los angeles and i do not, do not wish to intrude on that. they're entitled to grieve any way they want. but michael jackson's place in america is a legitimate topic of discussion and talking points is just about fed up with all the adulation.
basically grandstanding and pathetic in the extreme. yes, the man was an all-star entertainer but that's it. so enough with the phony platitudes. ok? the truth is that jackson's interaction were children were unacceptable for any adult. his incredible selfishness, spending hundreds of millions of dollars on himself while singing we are the world should make any clear-thinking american nauseous. and why are jesse jackson and al sharpton making this a racial deal? jackson bleached his own skin and then chose white men to provide existence for his invitro children. i mean, give me a break with all of this. to hear sharpton speak today, you would think mr. jackson was martin luther king jr. >> those young kids grew up from being teenage comfortable fans of michael to being 40 years old and being comfortable to vote for a person of color to be the president of the united states of america.
[cheers and applause] michael did that. michael made us love each other. michael taught us to stand with each other. bill: and if you disagree with honoring jackson the man, watch out. congressman peter king called jackson a pedophile an assessment not uncommon and was immediately branded a racist. naacp official hazel dukes and congressman bobby rush both said vial things about mr. king. the message is clear if you criticize michael jackson you hate black people. nonsense. if you like jackson, fine. no problem. that's your right. if you do not respect him, that is fine as well. dukes and rush are playing the race card pure and simple. they should be ashamed. the crowd outside the service today was much smaller than predicted. the service itself was very well done. but the media coverage was a bit bizarre. i mean, there is something surreal about watching katie
couric analyze things with kenny baby face edmunds and charles gibson didn't look relaxed doing play by play. the whole ordeal is showing how crazy the u.s.a. is becoming. a cowardly media will exploit any event for ratings. remember, the same people extoggle jackson today were the ones giving his child molestation travel gavel-to-gavel attention and after michael jackson was found not guilty, the american media did not exactly elevate him to hero status. did it? but now that he's dead, most likely from an accidental drug overdose, he is a hero. how does that work? how does that happen? another day in media world. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight reaction to that analysis with us fox news analyst dr. marc lamont hill. the racial thing bothers me a little bit. go ahead. you heard what i said. go ahead. >> i must admit.
i mean, have you me baffled in your analysis here to say that this isn't a racial issue when this man's entire career has been marked by the trops of race from an entertainer to the legal realm in all areas of his career he has been marked by race. yes the black community has embraced him and black community has embraced their arms around heir him more in death. they assaulted him in ways they don't assault the white people. bill: i disagree with that. they immediately crossover band. white americans bought their albums as much as black americans. no racial. they were great entertaining group. motown brought them out. they bought their records as much as they bought stevey wander and smoky robinson. the man gross up, all right? he has mega hit after mega hit, mega hit. every white person i know is dancing their buns off to off the wall and "thriller." i don't see any racial deal there. i don't see him being criticized
there it's only when he gets into the bizarre realm of bleaching his skin, plastic surgery and sleeping with children strange children, children he doesn't know. >> going to sleep with children. bill: sleeping with them in the same bed. >> somebody may think sleeping with children there was sexual component to that. bill: i'm saying the words as clear as can i, doctor, sleeping with children. adult sleeping with children not his kids, unacceptable for any adult to do that that's not acceptable behavior. only after that do people come after him. i don't see -- if he were a white guy, people would say hey, that's not acceptable. >> here is the point, bill. no one is saying that the media should not have drawn attention to michael jackson for those behaviors. bill: what's the component. >> component now he has passed away. a year or two ago when jerry falwell passed away you said give the man three days to a week and let the people mourn him before start talking about racial politics. why are we giving jerry falwell something we won't give michael jackson. >> i'm not saying anything about michael jackson.
if you remember i was the guy who said he was acquitted in the court of playoffs and got to stand. i reiterated that last night. i have never made any comment about his criminality, ever. ok? because i am going with the system. now, a guy like peter king comes out and he says, and i know peter king. he is not a racist. he is not. he says the guy is a pedophile. so, in his opinion and it's shared by a lot of people, king would have said that if the guy were any color, any color with his rap sheet, any color. >> but it wouldn't have happened that way. bill: wait a minute, are you saying king wouldn't have criticized that. >> that's exactly what i am saying. >> bull. you don't know him. he would have. >> you critiqued me for calling him a racist after his funeral. you said that's inappropriate behavior insensitive and disrespectful to his legacy to do so he. not because you agree with me. you have say that's not what you do to a celebrity after they die. bill: apples and oranges. >> please tell me how. bill: it is. al sharpton gets up there and makes him martin luther king jr.
come on. >> in addition to being the greatest child prodigy since mozart. he opened doors for people on mtv. bill: no argument. >> he opened the door. he was the jackie robinson of music. bill: he taught us to love one another. >> he absolutely did. he brought blacks and whites together. bill: he brought blacks and whites together. everybody liked his music. >> that was the. bill: you just made my argument for me. you just made my point. there is no racial exon nent in here. >> just because it's not racist doesn't mean it's not racial. bill: there isn't any. >> the fact that he brings blacks and whits together. the black man resembled himself in such a way to resemble white folk is a racial component. bill: pillar of black america when he bleaches his skin. >> because we're a loyal people. protected people and we understand that the architecture of white supremacy. a whole lot of black people want to look white.
bill: is he american, he wants to bleach his skin, i don't care. answer me this, if he is such a black american icon why did he have his kids with white men? >> that's a personal matter. that doesn't make him less black there no blackness meter him. you don't become less black when you have a white kid. bill: you don't become an african-american icon when you do something like that. >> you become african-american icon producing the greatest music and entertainer ever for being extraordinary humanitarian. bill: you just become an american icon for that not a black american icon. you are an american icon. >> is he an american idol. is he undeniably black. you can't take black from him just because he has white kids. bill: always a pleasure debating with you. next on the rundown bernie goldberg will analyze the coverage of both michael jackson and sarah
bill: impact segment tonight fox news analyst bernie goldberg has been closely watching how the media is covering michael jackson and sarah palin. joins us now from north carolina. so you just heard marc lamont hill and me. take this wherever you want to take it, bernie, go. >> well, you mentioned congressman king. let's start with that. congressman king isn't a racist because if he were, we would have heard a lot more racist things coming out of his mouth over all the years he has been in public service. we haven't. so he is not a racist. but some people think he is. you have to wonder why?
i don't want to get too haifa loot tent about this, bill, i think this all started when we emerged from caves. we were tribal from the beginning. we always looked out for our group over anybody else's group. that's why when somebody took a shot at sinatra, italian americans would bristle. what makes this thing with michael jackson so sad, at least to me so sad, is that it's not enough for the elites to simply make him and honor him as a great american entertainer. they have to make him a black hero and i'm sorry to repeat what you said earlier, but a black hero of a man who paid white people to produce his children? a black hero of a man who bleached his skin to the point that at the end he was as white as you and me? it's one thing to make him, to honor him as an entertainer, but as a civil rights hero?
that just strikes me as ridiculous but then again, to many black people, if you remember the reaction after he was acquitted, o.j. simpson was a hero. here's the sad part, bill, race in this country is the wound that never seems to heal. bill: ok. now, you will never hear analysis like bernie did or a debate like did i with dr. hill whom i respect on cbs, nbc or cnn, it will never happen. >> that's true. bill: when you were watching the coverage today by the networks, all of home cut into -- whom cut into their program and carried it live. i thought it was bizarre. i thought these people looked so uncomfortable. what did you think? >> well, the thing that struck me the most was how michael jackson and let me emphasize, a great entertainer, was elevated to something more than that. that's what structure me. the second thing that struck me was that not one of the people, i'm going to venture a guess, not one of the people who paid
tribute to him today and not one of the anchors who traveled all the way across the country to anchor the coverage today, i will bet you not one of them would have let their kids stay overnight with michael jackson when he was alive. if i'm right about that, that tells you something about their coverage also. bill: would you, if you were the president of cnn or cbs news or any of the others, fox news, greta is out there, would you have sent your guys out? >> you know, this is a fair question and it's a very difficult one for me because i couldn't survive in that role as president of a news division. there are certain things i just can't do. if everything is about ratings and the money it produces. in other words, if everything is about money, then let's not pretend we are having a discussion about journalism. we are having a discussion about
hookers. bill: you understand that the overwhelming demand from the audience prompted the coverage and that's why it was there. >> yes. absolutely. that's my point that if that's what it takes. i just couldn't do it. bill: you wouldn't want the job anyway. switching to sarah palin, the mainstream media gleeful about her resigning. the worst was on cnn. roll the tape. >> there have been a couple of other situations that might cause someone who feel a lot of stress but aside from those, is there anything going on with her that perhaps may lead her to want to make that decision? the one thing that's still left throughout hey, could she be pregnant again? >> well, i certainly don't know the answer to that last thought. bill: candy crowley an excellent reporter but that clown is systematic of what's going on. go ahead. >> let me just say i don't know rick sanchez. i was on a flight with him once. frankly, he struck me as a nice
enough guy. my advice to rick would be. this you don't have to express every thought that pops into your head and certainly not on national television, you know? you just don't have to do that. if legitimate speculation, did she quit to run for president? that's fine. legitimate, did she quit to make money in the private sector? fine. but it is not legitimate speculation to wonder outloud, to wonder outloud if she's pregnant. but i want to cut rick just a little slack. nothing that he did on live television, because on live television, you know, people say things compares to the hatred of people who had malice aforethought in the things they said about her. bill: it was all over the place. bernie, thanks very much. we appreciate it directly ahead, looks like big trouble looming for michael jackson's doctor. our is it legal team has been investigating. later body language looks at
sarah palin resigning. ♪ [ female announcer ] arthritis targets your body where it's weak. where it's vulnerable. ♪ tylenol arthritis works with your body to block the pain, without interfering with certain high blood pressure medicines like aleve sometimes can. ♪ so you don't just feel better, you feel better knowing doctors recommend tylenol more than any other brand of pain reliever. ♪
police say the doctor is cooperating in the investigation and drugs are suspected. with us now attorney and fox news analyst least we'll author of the big best -- lis wiehl author of the big best selling book face of betrayal and megyn kelly. how much trouble is he in. >> it's serious. he was getting a nice deal from michael jackson. they reportedly found him a couple years ago when michael jackson's daughter was sick. the body guard connected him. he was not board certified even though he was acting as such. he was going to get $150,000 a month, bill, a month to help michael jackson on this tour. now, i ask you, what is it a doctor does for you that justifies $1,250,000 a month? bill: gives you drugs. >> could it be gives you drugs that you should not otherwise have? bill: i understand, wiehl, this guy was ghot licensed to give drugs in california. he was in, what, texas or something? >> texas and nevada. he has practices in both of thofs places he was d.e.a. licensed there but not in california. so he could not prescribe much more than a tylenol to this guy.
i mean, if he dispensed or prescribed, it doesn't even have to be the prescription, even dispensing. giving jackson the drugs. bill: are these criminal or ethical activities. >> no. it's a federal crime to dispense and/or prescribe when you are not registered with the d.e.a. in that state. and if somebody dies, because of your actions, there is a mandatory, bill, a mandatory 20 years. whether he would actually get that or not that's another question. >> there is a problem because the drug that he is suspected right now of giving to michael jackson is known as dip prix van. that's not listed on the controlled substances list in california. why? because it's so unusual it's only used in hospitals. bill: anesthetic, right? basic lit authorities didn't think to put on controlled substances like oxycontin because it's not an abused drug. he could get around the particular statute least referenced by saying it's not controlled substance. bill: what's the difference between this and anna nicole
smith. >> because they were controlled substances. bill: he may skate. >> manslaughter. if you administer drugs in a way that's reckless disregard for life, you can still be charged with manslaughter. >> wait until we get the talks psychology report back. demerol could be part of this, demerol son the scheduled list of prohibitive drugs. bill: he says his lawyer says he didn't give. >> the lawyer says he didn't prescribe anything that should have caused the death of michael jackson. bill: i thought he mentioned demerol specifically. >> specific on that drug. >> even if he didn't prescribe it but he was there and part of it, how could you not know he? was living in the same house. bill: we are all in agreement that this doctor is in big trouble? this doctor is the focus. i believe jackson died of accidental overdose of narcotics. i think the toxicology will definitely show that. >> may not stop with him. they are investigating four other doctors. >> not just one doctor. bill: four other doctors that have allegedly given jackson
drugs. 150 k this guy was going to get on the road a month. >> this isn't his only doctor. bill: in north carolina, a serial killer running around and he had a, wiehl, 25 page rap sheet. >> 51 arrests. bill: let's keep this really simple. how could this guy be out of prison he? got released last april, i understand if he has got how many convictions? >> we don't know how many convictions. we know he had 61 arrests. he is a 41-year-old man. bill: he is arrested 61 times. he gets out last april, why? >> he was on probation. he had done eight years of a 10 year sentence. bill: who would give somebody with 61 arrests probation? he is out on parole not probation? >> i'm sorry, he is out on parole. that's why we need to have the three strike system. you know in california three violent crimes. bill: wiehl, that's too mean. the "new york times" is very upset about that. >> i'm sorry, three violent crimes. bill: steals one slice of pizza always that guy. you know what i'm talking about? >> i will say in this case, the
authorities followed the law. he served 85% of his sentence. that's what the law -- they revised the law in north carolina a couple years ago. make sure had you to serve that much. bill: he has 61 arrests. >> the problem is though when you look at the arrest lists they are not that serious, misdemeanors, forgery, possession of stolen goods. armed robbery and weapons possession but he served time. he served realtime for those. he was a career criminal, yes. but you can't throw guys like this in jail forever. bill: you are sitting there in front of me, kelly, saying it's not the system's fault here. this guy should have been out. >> yeah. i will defend the system on this one. bill: will you? >> no. because i think we should have three strikes and you are out. bill: did he have three felony convictions? >> i believe he did. he had three felony convictions. the question is the forgery wouldn't count. bill: with three strikes is. >> violent. bill: i don't think so. isn't it three felony convictions in california? i don't think it's violent. i think it's felonies. i think three felonies and you are out.
>> in north carolina in 200824 people convicted of first degree murder were let out early. the year before it was 27. the year before 21. bill: third one. >> the listen, but the point is you can't keep people in jail for breaking forever and let the murderers out early. bill: you can have a three strike law. >> take it up for the taxpayers. bill: i will take it up and i think the taxpayers will support me. real quick, wiehl, ward churchill the crazy by in the university of colorado, not getting his job back. >> the judge says you are not getting your job back. i totally agree with that. bill: because of the hair. >> definitely the hair. i have been emailing or texting with some university of colorado students who say look, you give this guy a cigar, he will give you a better grade. this guy is a nut. >> judge did the right thing. he could have given him reinstatement and big check called front pay or cood have given him nothing answered got nothing. i have got to give you something consistent with the jury's verdict. the jury verdict was $1. that's all you get.
bill: colombia university, just apply and they will hire you. they take every nut in the world. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along this evening. glenn beck no spin zone. but next body language on palin, barney frank and brook shields talking about michael jackson. we hope you stay tuned to those
acting techniques that actors learn. >> i don't think she was acting. >> that's what i was going to say when you are looking at her i see the cheeks being pulled in. the eyes. bill: what about the hand the hair, what is that? >> any time that you are emotional, you bring your hands to your face, a lot of times what you are trying to do is comfort yourself. so here it could have been. >> comforting does it so when you are emotional and emotional state your hands naturally go to your face? >> when you get upset what do you cover your mouth and that brings your hands to your face. >> basically brook shields was very saddened about michael jackson's death. she got up there and this is all real. every bit of it. >> i thought this came across as real, yes. bill: i don't disagree. sarah palin's resignation obviously took everybody by surprise. roll the tape on it? >> life is too short to compromise time and resources. and though it may be tempting and more comfortable to just kind of keep your head down and
plot along and appease those who are demanding hey, sit down and shut up, but that's a worthless easy path out. that's the quitter's way out. i think the problem from our country today is apathy. it would be apathetic to hunker down and go with the flow. we are fishermen, we know that only dead fish go with the flow. bill: i would like to do the body language on the duck. but we couldn't see him. we could hear him but we couldn't see him. politician, kind of rambling around. i don't know what she had written and who what she didn't. what did you pick up. >> level of high apprehension. one of the things i look for in addition to the nonverbals is the vernals. so as she was speaking initially you could hear this deep breath, this panting sort of thing. what happens when the system gets aroused try to take in more oxygen that's what she is doing early on. she is not normally a nervous speaker that struck a chord. i noticed that certain words you could see in her neck. you will could see the neck
tighten. bill: looking at it now. also a sign of apprehension. bill: when your neck tightens up when you can actually seat cords, that means that what? >> underlying anger, apprehension, high levels of. bill: but she is smiling. she looks relaxed. >> she wasn't relaxd. she was anxious. she even licked her lips several times during this short clip. in addition to that one of the things i noticed is when she is talking about it's the quitter's way out. she stiffens her whole body. that's almost preparing for a blow. you stiffen her whole body like that. bill: she is quitting the job and she knows she is going to get that thrown back at her. >> see how fast she spoke, also. bill: governor's speech was not a comfortable moment even though she wasn't q and ad. >> there was a lot of apprehension there. bill: talking about apprehension our pal barney frank comes on. i thought he need a manicure but let's take a look at it? >> i'm worried that this health care is going to send the united states into bankruptcy.
california is there now. massachusetts is in big trouble. and, you can reassure me that universal health care isn't going to bankrupt the united states of america? >> absolutely. because there are other areas we can cut. bill: all right. so,. >> that was just, to me amazing. i wondered as i watched does he recognize that there is a camera on him. typically you wouldn't see someone being that insulin. he was looking at the fingernails. typically we pick our fingernail what's are feeling nervous. i know he was not doing this out of nervousness but to prove that he was unaffected by you. bill: this is how i took it and believe me i saw it when it was going on. i didn't react to it because is he baiting me. he want me to say something mean to him. because that's why he came on. now, his gesture is one of disfor the question, correct? >> yes. what's interesting though when you sail to him can you reassure me? his mouth puckers inwards and lifts in a sure sign of
contempt. bill: let's see that again. the pucker? >> you will see it. bill: they will rerack it. so when you said you can reassure us? the lips go in and then one side goes up in contempt. bill: one side of his mouth goes up in contempt. bill: what you are saying, tonya, he doesn't like me much. >> no, not much. bill: should we chip? and get him a manicure. it looked pretty bizarre, didn't it. >> i'm not even paying you mind, you have nothing on me. of course it didn't come across that way. bill: when you see somebody doing that it was an effective gesture, he knew he was doing it he knew it. >> yeah. bill: he is not a stupid man. >> of course not. he has been on television. bill: he knows the camera son him and he knows is he doing. this and he knows he is being disrespectful. he knows all of that correct? so when you see somebody doing that what do you think as a body language expert? what do you think of the person? let's analyze it a little bit. >> i think he is trying too hard to come across as indifferent.
what winds up happening is he just comes off as rude. bill: so he comes off as -- i don't know if it's rude. i think borish, there is a little bit of a difference. rude would have been, you know. >> the lean back, the pull back especially once you are speaking to him, he slides down in his chair. that came across to me as rude. bill: why? >> just because when you pull away from someone to begin with, what you are saying is i'm really not all that interested. the sliding down on the chair was just a bizarre tactic. bill: when you slide down in the chair, what does that mean? that you are uncomfortable. >> you can't analyze that. bill: maybe his legs were too short. >> the movement didn't make sense. it was just too bizarre. bill: i want the congressman to know i will pay for the manicure if you need one. >> again, i was really surprised. bill: you were surprised? >> i was. bill: let me break this to you he hates my guts. >> it's still his image that gets affected. bill: his image? >> yes. bill: tonya reiman, everybody.
a undisclosed vacation, if i told you i would have to kill you. we have put together some of beck's more lucid moments over the past few months. roll the tape. bill: all right now in brazil they have got a president there. this guy is a pinhead. is he a pinhead. here is what he said about the economy. go. >> it is a crisis created and expanded by irrational behavior by white people with blue eyes. bill: so that means you and i we are white people with blue eyes. >> oh, crap. i just really? oh, no. bill: cancel your rio de janeiro vacation. white people with blue eyes. >> the whole world is stirring up hatred in all parts. bill: this is the president of the brazil. this isn't the. >> kind of like the chancellor of germany. bill: white guys with blue eyes cause all the problems. >> let's just say brazil best known for the thong.
bill: have you been to brazil? >> blond hair, blue eyes. bill: i have been there many times. it's a beautiful country. >> i think i saw you blue eyes in brazil? bill: that wasn't me. i understand you are a regular mark twain out there weaving tails to the -- tales to the folks all over the place. >> i don't know if mark twain would sell a lot of tickets. bill: you are not going to run down mark mark twain. i just compared to you a legend, beck. [ laughter ] >> no, we are having a great time. and you know what? i tell you, bill, i am sensing a real sense of responsibility in america. i am sensing real duty in america. i think people came out and they are getting real hard playoffs but in the second half i am telling stories about the founding of america. bill: you saw my talking points memo. off the chart brilliant, correct? >> yes. bill: don't you wish you could do something like that? >> don't i?
bill: just so -- it's so cohesive, pithy. >> you know what i like about you? humility. bill: i knew you were going to say that you are yourself, you know what i'm talking about? obama, i think he played it mostly smart. i think he helped the country, the united states by going over there. >> i think barack obama is brilliant. i think he is a very, very good communicator. i think he is great. bill: they love him over there. >> yeah. that kind of leads me to i don't like that. you know? bill: we need those people to help us out. >> do we? bill: economically we do need the world -- they say they ponied up a million dollars. it's mostly smoke and mirrors. we need those people to help us out. we need them to help us out and basically stop enabling iran. >> they are socialists. they believe in let everybody just live together and can't we just all get along and hey don't say anything harsh and that's
leading europe to the brink of disaster. bill: did you cover this brouhaha on your radio show? >> i think it's a distraction from the real issues. why are we talking about rush limbaugh? bill: it's the obama white house. you rightly said it's a distraction. >> yeah. bill: there is a legitimate point within the debate. the republican party is really leaderless right now. >> yeah. bill: who do you want to lead the g.o.p. >> i don't care about the g.o.p. or democrats either. i am a libertarian i will vote for whoever has the best idea. i'm looking for somebody. i thought i would catch more flies with honey. i thought somebody like you. bill: i'm not a republican. i'm an independent. >> that's good. >> here is what i am looking for. you know you always get hassled people always bill o'reilly is just a hatchet man for the bush administration. the deal is i have watched your show enough to know you hammer the bat ♪ out of both snot out of both
sides. bill: in the media there are people pointing out this country is going a direction you might want to think about in the media in the political realm there is nobody there right now. nobody there. >> i talked to a senator a year ago. i was on the air with him. and i said, senator, do you not understand here? look what's happening with the economy. he said well, glenn, your research is probably a little better than mine. i said you are a senator for the love of pete. bill: got to get colin powell back in the game, right? is he coming on your program? boy oh boy. >> i was doing the children's miracle network down in orlando, florida last week. bill: that's a charity, right? >> i was hosting it and i was down in orlando and i got this for you. billie. see? and you can have that you can wear it now if you want it. bill: some people say i wear it every night. beck, always good to see you.
