Bill O’Reilly And Old Media: Not Waving But Drowning
The establishment is so terrified of new media, they dare not mention Alex Jones by name

It has become abundantly clear that the establishment is so petrified of the fact that Alex Jones is at the tip of the spear of a new media revolution that is sweeping away the old guard, that we have now reached the point where talking heads like Bill O’Reilly and indeed the Obama White House itself dare not even mention his name.
During a segment about “the dumbest things of the week,” Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly entertained his dwindling geriatric audience by poking fun at Alex Jones’ appearance on The View last week, chuckling and guffawing at the behavior of “some guy on the radio, we really don’t know who he is.”
Unfortunately for Bill O’Reilly, whose own radio show was cancelled in 2008 because of plummeting ratings, that “guy on the radio” is totally creaming Billo on every measurable platform.
While O’Reilly has lost 21% of his younger viewers, the Alex Jones Show is routinely number one on Shoutcast and has attracted You Tube viewing figures totaling hundreds of millions.
Bill O’Reilly’s flagship website is ranked at a truly pathetic 45,000 on Alexa.com, compared to Alex Jones’ Infowars which comes in 43,000 places above him at around 2,000.
