Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thank you for watching us tonight Mitt Romney vs the kids that is a subject of this evening's talking points memo.
What I am about to tell you his.
Very hard to believe but every word of it's true.
Yesterday Mitt Romney was campaigning in Virginia when he saw group of children waving at him from the side of the road.
The governor ordered his caravan to stop -- to -- -- kids and talk with them a nice thing to do.
But here's a photo the Associated Press took it to -- -- a foolish shots it makes Romney the bought of stupid jokes pardon upon.
Pictures taken by photographer Evan Lucci and never should have been published a governor doesn't know -- -- child behind in the child's look and it's something else.
This is a a cheap shot literally.
Now accompanying the photograph was an article by AP reporter Lynn -- -- The chided Romney for not participating in a Nickelodeon special called kids pick the president.
A program will be hosted by Linda Ellerbee a committed leftist and President Obama has it -- to appear on.
Governor says he passed because of scheduling but he well knows -- -- -- and accrue a devoted Obama supporters so that's a real reason Romney hasn't shown up.
The AP reporter elbow or not exactly miss objectivity.
She call -- -- Republican Convention performance quote.
Odd ball -- quote she also wrote a very pro PBS piece but fail to -- government subsidies to that network.
The former chairman of the board at the Associated Press William dean Singleton.
Last April introduce President Obama at the annual AP luncheon by saying quote.
The president inherited the headwinds of the worst economic recession since the Great Depression he pushed through congress the biggest economic recovery plan in history and on and on and on.
A glowing introduction.
Now the JP is one of the largest news wire services in the world.
And it's biased against Mitt Romney I think that's true beyond a reasonable doubt.
Local newspapers all over the USA -- AP photos and articles every day.
That's a huge advantage for President Obama and perhaps the best example of what the national media has become an America.
The Obama campaign believes governor Romney made a big mistake by saying he would stop federal money to PBS and NPR.
This morning this -- was released.
It's clintons of greed.
I would over them one man has the guts to speak his -- big bird big bird big bird it's neat experience the a menace to our economy.
He knows it's not Wall -- you have to worry about it Sesame Street I'm at a stop the subsidy to PBS Mitt Romney taking on them.
No matter -- coming up next.
Now the sesame workshop which controls the image of big bird has asked the Democrats to pull the dad saying it's nonpartisan -- want to get involved and this year the Corporation for Public Broadcasting will receive 444.
Million dollars for 44.
In taxpayer -- That's funny the nation does not have to spend especially facing a trillion dollar budget deficit and -- sixteen trillion dollar national debt.
Jon -- night -- the issue on Saturday.
The reason that we invest in things like public television yet is that it brings educational programs to communities that would not have them it's one of the best investments we have -- -- Six -- How I pulled out there and we had a paper billboard.
Let him compete on his don't want -- educational program watch your program.
Springs and again able all right let him compete on his own let me let me practice and somebody -- Larry you've got -- thought about Bill O'Reilly hasn't got to drive huh.
Thirty million dollars from MDR because NPR should be able to compete on its own threat.
Like to be clear national public radio NPR is part just part.
Of the public broadcasting umbrella which again receiving close -- 450 million dollars this year alone.
In assessing governor Romney's weak points President Obama apparently thinks he has an opportunity with this controversy.
Some it is cracking down on big bird.
Is there's been seen -- white.
A white suburban -- your brother for the border.
-- -- it's -- little Wall Street run wild again but.
Don't bring the hammer down on Sesame Street.
-- two things the white suburban reference of course it's OJ Simpson.
And a Wall Street running while line is very interesting isn't it.
The president is seen in conservative precincts as being anti capitalists.
Few years ago that would have been dangerous territory for any politician but now things change.
The recession was brought on largely by greedy Wall Street corporations.
Trafficking in bogus mortgage paper.
And the folks know their suffering because of Wall Street excess that's all true.
But what we are seeing now is the baby.
Out with the bath water -- -- -- of reforming Wall Street -- effective oversight mr.
Obama and left continued to attack it.
Corporate America is seen some liberal quarters as the enemy.
The left wants the government to largely control the entire economy as it wants the feds to control health care.
That has led the private sector the job creators.
To be overly cautious.
And -- prevented -- robust economic recovery.
John -- we'll have proof of that coming up.
With the associated press and other national media should be concentrating on.
Is the battle between capitalism.
And quads I socialism that's taken place between the two presidential candidates that's the real story in this election.
But the -- and others are now so we invested.
In re electing President Obama.
That fair responsible and insightful reporting it's nearly vanished and of course mr.
Is benefiting from that.
And that's and that's not a -- -- co.
