VIDEO: Watch O’Reilly Tell Jorge Ramos He’s An Activist And Not A Journalist

Yes, we could probably bring in Captain Obvious from the Hotels.com commercials to help us with this one. But it’s usually enjoyable, particularly in the context of American media and journalism, to see the obvious openly stated since that seems to happen so rarely.

And as such, when last night Bill O’Reilly admonished Univision anchor and illegal immigration agitator Jorge Ramos, whose obnoxious performance at an August Iowa press conference got him booted from the room by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, about his advocacy it was a drop-the-mic moment.

We don’t need any further introduction for this clip…

A transcript

Bill O’Reilly: OK, now you’re an anchor man. How can you possibly cover illegal immigration fairly when you’re an activist? When you’re a proponent of allowing them amnesty? How can you possibly cover the story? You should excuse yourself from it or recuse yourself from it. Or, become like me a commentator.

Jorge Ramos: I’m just a reporter.

O’Reilly: You’re not! You’re an activist.

Ramos: Mr. O’Reilly, I don’t think you’re the right person to lecture me on advocacy when you spend most of your program giving opinions…

O’Reilly: … Jorge, why don’t you just become like me a commentator? You’re not a newsman anymore.

Ramos’ haughty pretentiousness to cover his lack of professionalism is irritating enough, but what makes it worse is his J-school lefty “I’m in this business to change the world” point of view. He’s everything that’s wrong with American media and O’Reilly is precisely correct to tell him he needs to stop calling himself a reporter and start admitting he’s a commentator. If not, his bosses at Univision ought to do it for him.

But of course they know exactly what they’re doing and why he’s where he is.
