    i hated it as well, but, you said it yourself, the guy enjoys making a fuss, nothing more, nothing less. i dont think many people are taking his views seriously

    btw, i know that many writers on the internet (including some at seoulbeats) have also showcased insensitive and naive viewpoints regarding Korean culture. i dont see why we should care if some hyper conservative moron wants to run his mouth. i mean, scientifically speaking, he will be dead soon (he is 63), so just let him spout as much b.s as he wants.

    oh and you’re ashamed of being american because one person chooses to excercise his right to free speech? wow! i dont really care much for americans (since i currently live in the u.k) but i must ask…really? there are hundreds of thousands of worse things that american people do and you take extreme offense to what an old imbecile uses to boost ratings?!?!?!?!? wow. sometimes rhetoric should be toned down ever so slightly IMO. free speech is not a rosy little ideal that means people will only speak flowery words and attempt to appease everyone. it has many disadvantages, a couple of which are being seen here. if you have a system in place, acknowledge both the good and the bad

    • mangochic

       Studies have shown that his show and fox news in general are less informed than people who don’t watch any news at all. In other words, even if he is 63 he is dangerous to society as he is contributing in making people dumber than before.

      • takasar1

        well, as much as i would like to argue the intelligence of an average viewer of fox news i must decline to do so and instead will leave you with the thought that America is a ‘democracy’ (as if such a naive system ever existed). one principle feature of this system is the right to free speech. what can you do against this guy? take him down? shut him up? no that would make the government look just as bad as those ‘horrible despicable little communists’ that they love to bash. besides, there obviously are people stupid enough to watch his show and agree with his (slightly radical) viewpoints. just because they are in direct contrast to both mine and your views does not mean that they are less valid. if he wants to preach, there is nothing we can do about it, consequently spending valuable time complaining about the racist bigot is time wasted. seriously, do you think that our views mean much in the overall scheme of things?

          So everything is free speech in United-States? Death threats? Defamation? 

          I seriously don’t know but I don’t think you should equate democracy with your definition of  “free speech” that seems to equate that you can say anything at all. Where I live is a democracy and racism or homophobic comments are not something that can be protected under a “free speech” excuse.

          Also, you seem to think that we should let the bigots be bigots and it doesn’t matter because they are old and they will die soon anyway. Eh sorry but these old bigots are teaching young people to be bigots (because you need to remember that being a bigot is a learnt thing, it’s not innate) and we need to do anything we can to stop that vicious cycle. Talking about the problem is the first step that will help. It’s not because you close your eyes that the problem will go away.

          You are seriously depressing me with you cynic and pessimist views.

          • takasar1

            “You are seriously depressing me with you cynic and pessimist views.” and, the world is a horrible place. if you dont like my comment, dont read it. i didnt abuse anyone or mention things so blatantly wrong that i cant argue them. “rainbows and pixie dust and bunnies running around everywhere and people living in perfect harmony with each other”, is all one big fantasy. it is an ideal fantasy, but we can NEVER accomplish this

            “Talking about the problem is the first step that will help”. really? tell me, is this the first time that the moron has tried to shove his insensitive drivel down our throats? is this the first time we are mad about his rampant stupidity and have ‘talked’ about the possibility of him being removed from broadcast? here are the issues i am trying to put forward: there are obviously many people who support his views, he is rich and supported by a filthy rich backer, money is power. consequently, he will (most possibly) not be removed from his post. plus, you forget that there are many insensitive people in America (as there are anywhere), why else do you think gangnam style  became so popular (it plays to the popular and insensitive stereotype that Asian men are all chubby, middle-aged, lecherous and exist to make others laugh).

            with regards to democracy, while i agree with what you stated (one should not be free to insult others), i merely put forward what the reality is: human beings do very readily insult/do harm/provoke one another (case and point: o’reilly’s comments, the guy who tried to burn a quran, the guy who made a film about islam and so on). this displays an inherent problem with the system; the inability to place down firm and rigid markers/barriers pertaining to what is and what is not permissible.

            “It’s not because you close your eyes that the problem will go away”. well that is just the type of person i am. i would much rather close my eyes and carry on with my life trying to avoid issues like this than waste time trying to fight a losing battle. i know, i know, i know, if this was hollywood or some manga i would be portrayed as the grumpy, jaded old cynic but unfortunately its real life, there is no hero around ready to  come out with some badass line that shakes my beliefs to the foundation and causes me to join up with him. respect my beliefs (even if you disagree) and i will respect yours (even if i disagree).

            p.s: i firmly believe that parents are fully responsible for their child’s upbringing

          • yuki kokoro

            Wow you are so good with words that I clearly enjoy having a verbal joust with you!

            I never said you abused anyone and I’m sorry but I can’t know what is the content of your comment before actually reading it. Anyway, I never said that I didn’t like your comment, I simply stated that you were depressing me.

            I know the world is not all rainbows and stuff but it’s not a reason to not trying to make it a better place. You never wanted to make something better before? Just because you can’t make it perfect, you don’t try? Nothing is worth if it’s not for achieving perfection?

            I agree that it’s most unlikely that complaining about that man won’t stop him at all (especially doing it here) but the problem is not really him but it’s the bigger picture. Why is that that TV broadcasters in the US are allowed to broadcast stuff like that. There is a problem somewhere and it’s most likely not that man fault. He is like the symptom of a bigger cancer. 

            “this displays an inherent problem with the system; the inability to place down firm and rigid markers/barriers pertaining to what is and what is not permissible”

            I agree completely.

            “plus, you forget that there are many insensitive people in America”

            I don’t really understand why you think I forget that…

            “i firmly believe that parents are fully responsible for their child’s upbringing”.

            I don’t want to make an evil out of TV but you really think that TV has no influence at all on people who listens to that type of shows? I’m not saying that bigotry is created out of nowhere because of this show but that it helps to perpetuate it. I also didn’t say that if you remove this man or this show, all problems will be fixed. And no, everything won’t be perfect. Just better.

            P.S I respect you, I’m just happy that I think differently than you.

          • takasar1

            thank you, the respect and enjoyment goes both ways. i agree with your comment regarding the ‘cancer’ that has taken hold of broadcasting companies. the argument i am going to make is that not even the U.S government can do anything serious about o’reilly. the reason…because it can very easily be seen as an attempt to curtail free speech. the last thing that the U.S needs right now, just before it begins a climatic and long-drawn out conflict with china, is accusations of double standards. honestly, i dont like just sitting here and being relatively powerless and unable to do much but you said it perfectly yourself: it is unlikely that we can get anything done. we can just hope that something (anything) eventually shuts the guy up.

            you are correct, t.v can influence people and has the potential to be highly intoxicating. i believe that parents, using their authority to stamp out such horribly ignorant views out of their children, is a major way to combat this.

            “And no, everything won’t be perfect. Just better” i dont know, ya know. i used to think this as well but then i visited America and despite loving the scenery, the food and the majority of the people, i quickly realised that there are people so extreme that they make o’reilly look sane. an excellent example is that michelle bachmann woman. for once i am actually being optimistic with regards to this (shocker) and am going to say that while, you are right, o’reilly is a horrible person who should not be given any airtime, there are crazier people out there who come out with similarly stupid crap at a much greater frequency.

            “P.S I respect you, I’m just happy that I think differently than you”

            thank you! And i will begrudgingly admit that optimists are needed in a world inhabited by horrible people such as myself!

          • yuki kokoro

            Hey no need to put yourself down!

            I agree that the world would be really horrible if everybody was pessimistic like you but you are not a horrible person just for being pessimistic!

            I only went to US once and I didn’t really speak English back then so I can’t talk by experience but I almost everyday I am rendered speechless by something I read about US on the internet. I long concluded that I would never be able to live there and keep my sanity.

            Free speech is such a touchy subject for them, sigh. I really don’t know how that problem can be solved… I’m also not convinced that laws can take care of that. It’s like it’s a societal thing and only when the society itself will condemn such things, will it change. I just don’t understand how people can tolerate that. Where I live, if a TV person made comments like that, they won’t go in prison or anything but they will certainly be out of job in the TV field for a while! I guess you can compare to Kim Gura in South Korea.

            But even if this guy shut up (or die), somebody else will take his place!

          • takasar1

            haha, i do tend to that quite often. i believe pessimistic people can only justify themselves if they act in a pessimistic manner as well. only if they if they prepare for the worst (a useful thing to do sometimes) can they justify their words. otherwise they just fools who enjoy talking too much!

            “I long concluded that I would never be able to live there and keep my sanity” i know right! when i first learnt english in school back in my home country, i had an American teacher, we were only kids yet the woman, compared to my other teachers, was severely under-dressed! i personally find western culture very hard to adapt to and while i have had american friends before i can never really understand why they are so ‘open’.

            “Free speech is such a touchy subject for them, sigh”. you bet it is, the first thing i learnt about america was that the country sees itself as a ‘beacon of democracy’. free speech is a key component of that concept, any infringement with regards to this in america would be heavily criticized by countries who are weary of the U.S.A’s global influence and interference.

            ” they will certainly be out of job in the TV field for a while”, same here.

          • yuki kokoro

            While I don’t understand what you mean by “open”, if you are talking about how the women dress then I think that you are entitled to your opinion. That kind of thing is highly culturally linked. For example a woman in North America may think that a Korean women is showing way too much skin with this mini skirt. But a Korean woman will think the same at the North American woman just because she is showing her shoulder. You can’t say that one is better than the other, they are simply cultural norms. 

            You made me wondering where you are from. You said you lived in UK but are you an immigrant? I am wondering if you being so pessimist is because you have been victim of racism yourself. If so, I would feel bad to talk about this subject with you, granted that I never seen any racism in real life.

    Lindsay, do not apologize on others’ behalves. It is totally not your responsibility, though I do appreciate your article which counteracts this type of American behaviour (I am not saying racism and ignorance, with a touch of arrogance, are American traits, but that there is a stereotype of the American which often incorporates these ideas which videos like this promote). 

    I am appalled that something like this could even get to air. I am surprised that there wasn’t a call for a disclaimer that these views aren’t supported by the network as I have seen on the BBC, etc here. I make a point of not watching Fox as it often makes my blood boil. I cannot tell if such ridiculous journalism is sensationalism for the audience or just delusional fanaticism, but my main concern is that the people at home adopt similar stances due to their poor choice of news outlet.

    So, are you also going to say sorry to Blacks and Hispanics who live in America(or any ethinc group for that matter,wait…also include the poor). This isn’t the first racist thing that he has said or that FOX has aired and it won’t be the last. And if any one who isn’t American actually takes what he says as what all Americans think are just as bad as he is.

      If I wrote for a website that was focused on Hispanic pop culture or Black pop culture I absolutely would. 

      And I have to agree with you on the last point, but sadly, as you may have noticed, there are many people on the internet who take everything too seriously.

        The thing you have to remember is different countries have different rules. They do not have the freedom of speech they way we Americans do so when they see something on TV they maybe more likely to believe it is truth simply because in their country a TV personality would not be allowed to say whatever they wanted just to inflame the viewers. This is all speculation on my part though.  

  • severely

    I think it’s not your responsibility to feel ashamed for being an American, just like O’Reilly is. O’Reilly should certainly be ashamed for selling out his education for a paycheck and fame. But you’re not responsible simply by also being an American.

    He will appeal to a certain group of people that share the same view about the music or ethnic group but his commentary was no more than an attempt to ride off the fame generated by Psy

    Bill O’ Reilly is a prick. I hope one day he says something that can really get him kicked off TV for good. I can’t stand him and the rest of the morons over at FOX news. If the people on TV don’t look like them, act like them, and is not from the same socioeconomic bracket, then they have to tear them apart. People like them make me realize that we have a lot more progress to make in our society.

    No offense to anyone who likes O’Reilly but I have always seen him as a racist who has a distorted view of the truth.  He is one of those people who uses information when convenient and then comes up with misinformed assumptions based on prejudice when facts are not convenient.  O’Reilly is the biggest bully on american TV and everyone knows it.

    Bill O’Reilly is a blowhard who likes the sound of his own voice. Unless you watch Fox News he is not someone to take seriously. Just watch his debate with Jon Stewart from a couple of months ago for the ridiculous things he says. 

    If I felt ashamed everytime a fellow American said something stupid I wouldn’t be able to function.

        The fact that Stewart was clearly enjoying toying with and pissing Reilly off was the best part. I sat with a stupid grin on my face saying “git him! git him!” the entire time. 

  • VLF218

    We all know Bill O’Reilly is just a nut job but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t offended.  I just happened to flip past FOX at the beginning of this segment and pretty much sat there in shock.  It really is amazing how there are still people like this

    Side note:
    About the Justin Bieber thing.  I actually like him but he and Psy shouldn’t be compared because they are on 2 TOTALLY different levels musically; not because JB is garbage or anything.  Comparing them is like comparing Michael Jackson and Taylor Swift; it just doesn’t make sense

  • ycapb

    Nice commentary, agree with most everything, O’Reilly gets paid to do what he does, people shouldn’t take him too seriously. Thing I don’t get is why people are convinced everyone hates Bieber. I’m not his fan or anything, but the dude makes 55 million a year, and is one of the most influential celebrities. Obviously a large portion of the mainstream fancy him. Like it or not, Psy has a ways to go (successive hit singles) before matching JB’s success.

    It was quite funny how quick O’Reilly was in defending Elvis. I think, in the begening, what the psychiatrist said is true to some extend – my friends love the MV despite understanding the lyrics, just on the sole reason it is funny and you can get some of the meaning without knowing the words… plus the good beat and how catchy the song is.

    But the comparing the artists part? That’s where i got a little offended. You can understand why Justin Bieber is popular (catchy pop songs) but fail to see that in case of a fat little sunglasses-wearing Asian guy?

    Where the psychiatrist was wrong was the “society doesn’t want quality pieces to be made”. I know of lots of children’s books with a message. It just has to be written very well to be published.

    Welcome to the party, Kpop fans. Now get in line with the homosexuals, Christians, feminists, minorities and the thousands of other groups Bill O’Reilly has misinterpreted and pissed on over the years. Just don’t expect your rage — no matter how vocal — to be enough to get him yanked off the air. He brings in the viewers and, in the end, that’s all the network heads really want from their talent.

    As for Bill O’Reilly’s academic achievements, there is a saying that my mother taught me as a little boy that still holds true and even gets a chuckle and a head shake from me when I see it in motion:

    The smartest people can still be lacking in common sense. 

    The two aren’t mutually exclusive (intelligence and common sense), but it is very possible (and damn near likely) to have one and not the other. Sometimes the most scholastically apt person can be downright barren when it comes to street smarts and general savvy. In other words, you can be very intelligent and well-read and STILL be a complete dumbass in other areas.

    Bill O’Reilly has the credentials of an intelligent man. However, his words, his grasp of situations, his pandering with only a fraction of the true metrics in hand before making his arguments suggest that while he has the knowledge necessary to make thoughtful, well-informed commentary on a subject, he lacks the damn sense necessary to keep his point concise and thought-provoking instead of just becoming vomitous

    “O’Reilly went on to graduate from Marist University for undergraduate and then earned a master’s degree from both Boston University and Harvard.” 
    Well; that’s for sure surprising but in the end, having a master degree from an Ivy league school doesn’t ensure being open minded toward other cultures. Actually, it’s quite pathetic he needs to make such insensitive comments on a foreign pop music singer who just got big in the USA.

(I said “bigoted” instead of racist because he hates pretty much everyone who is different from him, not just those of different skin colors.) Unfortunately there are people who hang on his every word (my dad, for instance), but everyone else knows he’s crazy and in no way represents a majority of American opinions.

    He was actually tamer than usual, especially compared to the psychiatrist. He’s probably never seen any other K-pop videos besides “Gangnam Style,” but imagine if he’d seen other videos, like boy groups dressing as girls or all the fan service videos. I’m picturing him watching Jonghyun and Taemin’s near kiss. Suddenly the language barrier wouldn’t have made a difference and he would have been up in arms about K-pop’s corrupting influence.

    I’m not american or anything but that kind of video makes american tv (and in extent, the people who agree with the men in the vids) look really really bad.

      Fox is known to blatantly put out lies and false information so anyone with half a brain doesn’t watch that channel and expect proper educated and well founded discussions. Unfortunately foreigners who don’t know any better will see this guy and think he represents american people’s thoughts/opinions. 

      BTW Fox is the same channel that said Barack/Michelle Obama’s fist bump was a terrorist symbol. So yeah, that shows you how credible that whole channel is.

      FOX news is trash period. Nothing they say is credible much less have any weight in America culture.

    I guess it was a really slow news day at Fox for O’Reilly to come up with this. Srly, FOX news is the most trashiest, racist, bias news outlet in America. You might not want to call him ignorant, but he is ignorant in every sence of the word., he could have gone to Harvard and he still the bigest racist on TV. The only reason he is on TV is because he brigs the ratings for Fox. The audience he targets are the ultraconservative patriotic Americans who have no clue whats going on in the real world, much less find Korea in the map.
    So Kpop fan don’t get upset, cause the hate from O’Reilly is equal to everyone, who doesn’t confirm to his ideals.
    As for PSY I feel bad that his song had to be put through the mud by this two ignorant people.
