Wytze!
As a Canadian, I feel sick seeing O'Reilly next to a picture of our flag. It's like he's going to give us syphilis or something.

I used to know this guy from some other forum that was a raving Bill O'Reilly fanatic. He once said, in what is a very close approximation to a quote: "Probability is bullshit because every time I flip a coin, there's a 50% chance it comes up heads." Thus, I think the case can be made that aggressive conservatives are clinically retarded.
spikestoyiu
Actually isn't it like 51% likely that it'll come up heads? I'm too lazy to Google.

Ageusiatic
He's correct in what he said, it's called gambler's fallacy. That said, it doesn't equate at all towards the argument at hand.

Hooker
No, he was speaking of probability as a whole. The entire discipline. He was dismissing, among other things, the bell curve on the basis of individual coin flips.

We're more of the love, blood and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.

Syd Midnight
I know that type of person and they are more likely to spend on scratch off lottery tickets than make a Gambler's Fallacy reference. The kind of person who uses a simple math riddle they don't get as proof that "numbers lie". Stupidity > malice.

WPCR is an ACTOR! He's the opposite of people!

Camonk
I'm not sure that really counts as POP culture, you guys.

:) to WPCR and Teener

Actually, if you add up the average life expectancies of Canadians for the past ten years, you will see we are living over 800 years. You might want to reconsider socialism Billo.
spikestoyiu
But does anyone really want to spend 800 years on a planet where garbage like this pulls in millions upon millions of viewers?

It's ok for Bill to say stupid shit like this, his audience would never get it. He could say the earth is flat, and is the center of the universe, and nobody would see nothing wrong with that.
badideasinaction
Here's the big question - did he say that because he believed it, or because he knew that's all he needed to say for his viewers to believe it.

Because really, I'm guessing his actual honest answer would be "well, that's because their system lets poor people live longer, and we don't care about them".

I'd like to see Bill deliver Dave Foley's Canada monologue, but played perfectly straight. His viewers would believe him.

Media Matters does nothing but point out when conservative commentators make little mistakes and flub ups. They're the equivalent of guys who point out spelling and grammar errors on the internet.
robe
What did he mean to say, Mark?

Smellvin
I'm guessing he was trying to mention population density -- not total numbers. I don't know whether or not Canada has fewer people by percentage in urban areas, nor do I care enough to check.

IrishWhiskey
Ted Hitler agrees:

rawelkij
It should be "flub-ups."

badideasinaction
Smellvin: Canada has a lower population density, but our population distribution puts the vast majority of our population in urban areas near the boder. Stats I saw place distribute population as 80% urban, 20% rural, which is a hair above the US's 79 and change percent.

Rum Revenge
I know I shouldn't feed this troll, but it's not a "little mistake" or a "flub-up", O'Reilly is spreading his agenda through a very obvious and outright lie.

If Obama had made that middle-school math failure on TV, you'd have a field day!

cognitivedissonance
You're my density.

Cena_mark
He's not trying to lie to spread his agenda. He just fudged up. He's a broadcaster who does live TV, It happens. If anything the health systems aren't the main factors giving Canadiots and Americans different life spans. If anything I'd say its diet that shortens America's life spans more than anything.


pastorofmuppets
The important thing was that he was defending our current healthcare system. As long as you agree with that the rest (including arguments for and against other systems) is just nitpicking. ELITIST nitpicking.

phalsebob
So Canada has a healthier diet? Do you have any idea what Poutine is?

dr_rock
Cena is right. In fact he, himself, is living proof of what he says.


(FATASS!)

Their profound ignorance never ceases to amaze me.

Bill O'Reilly only has to be smarter than the people who watch him seriously, and just stupid enough that smart people watch him to see what crazy shit is going to come out of his mouth next.

Ratings are ratings are ratings.
Ponasty
DING, DING, DING. we have a winner!

Syd Midnight
Exactly. Ever really listen to a televangelist in full swing? He doesn't believe half the shit that comes out his mouth, but he knows his viewers do.

mashedtater
bill, ive done your math. according to it, we should all be dead by now, considering we should not have lived past the age of 8.
memedumpster
Wow, I expect Bill to say stupid things, but that was academically stupid. Bill is one day going to be on the View.

Keep on running that retard race, Bill.
