Apparently attacking the President of the United States and all other progressive politicians just isn’t good enough for Bill O’Reilly anymore. In fact, he’s so bored with “politics as usual” that he has now decided to formally declare war on the next great threat to our country – The Breast Milk Babies.
On the last episode of “The O’Reilly Factor” Bill O’Reilly trashed the world’s first breastfeeding doll straight from his Fox News podium. Bill stated, “I don’t like it … There’s a lot of harm being done to children…” While his colleague on screen railed, “it grosses me out.”
According to Dennis Lewis, U.S. spokesman for Berjuan Toys, the company that makes the breastfeeding dolls, nobody at Fox News even bothered to try and get in contact to ask for their side of the story. “Over the last few days we have received support for our dolls from all over the country. We’ve spoken out on TV and radio, and Fox News can’t even bother to give us a call? I guess he couldn’t get his mind out of the gutter long enough to reflect on how important breastfeeding is for our society.”
Curiously, this isn’t the first time the conservative network has lashed out against initiatives in support of breastfeeding. In February, when first lady Michelle Obama promoted changes in regulations that would favor businesses that accommodated mothers who decide to nurse, Sarah Palin joked “it’s only a good idea because milk is so expensive” while other hosts accused the first lady of promoting a “nanny state”.
When asked about this, Mr. Lewis replied, “I think Fox News and Bill O’Reilly are working once again to favor big business over the health and well being of normal Americans. The big companies insistently push to sell more baby formula, despite the fact that science has clearly demonstrated the benefits of breastfeeding. Our dolls are designed to teach little girls, in a loving playful way, that the most wholesome natural way to feed a baby is by nursing.”
In conclusion the Berjuan spokesman offered a challenge to Bill O’Reilly and Fox News, “if they truly aren’t opposed to breastfeeding and they actually respect their own slogan of ‘Fair and Balanced’ then I challenge Bill O’Reilly to invite me on his show to debate the merits of our beautiful dolls. My only doubt is whether he has the ‘cojones’ to face up to a grown man instead of bullying an innocent doll.”
