Dear Bill O’Reilly

Dear Bill O’Reilly,
Look, I know we’ve had our differences in the past (mainly because I’m right and you’re wrong, but let’s not play the blame game) but I appreciated your segment on your show last night. You know, the part where you and Glenn beck talked about the mentality of the Japanese? Alright, you were mainly talking about how America was sensationalizing the nuclear situation. Funny, I thought it was your guys’ incentive to keep the world paralyzed in fear? No matter.
Well, full disclosure, I liked it until your little input about the attitude of the japanese towards “outsiders.” Mind you, your words not mine. Now, I’m not one of those people who’s shocked every time somebody badmouths the Japanese. It’s true, what’s happening there is horrific and beyond tragic, but it’s not a perfect society. But Bill, (do you mind if I call you Bill? I’m gonna assume you said yes, because at this point, it’s more work to go back and change it) you then proceeded to say something that kinda changes the story. I’m gonna paraphrase, but it went something along the lines of “I would know about japanese culture. My father was stationed there DURING THE OCCUPATION.” I don’t know about you, but I probably wouldn’t be too friendly towards occupying forces, but then again, I may be overreacting.
So I’m gonna leave you with this helpful piece of advice I got from a journalism teacher. Front load the story. Give the audience all the information upfront and slowly get more specific as you go. Now, “during the occupation” is certainly front load-worthy, so let’s try that next time, shall we?
Best Wishes,
Disgruntled Democrat
