On the June 2 edition of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” host Bill O’Reilly played footage of gay affirming McDonalds ad currently airing in France. He then discussed the content with Jane Skinner. Media Matters for America posted the video here.
Skinner pointed out that the ad campaign showed people “in different walks of life. This happens to be their gay friendly ad,” O’Reilly then asked, “Do they have an al Qaeda ad, you know, come as you are?”
Instead of discussing this groundbreaking commercial in a fair manner, O’Reilly stooped to the lowest level, using the occasion to compare the gay themed ad to the idea of creating an ad targeting a terrorist organization for business. His lighthearted tone in the segment was equally disturbing.
