Bill O'Reilly Calls FOX 'Most Powerful Media Agency in the World'
By AOL TV Editors Posted Nov 24th 2010 02:00AM
On Monday night's 'The O'Reilly Factor,' O'Reilly said, "Here at FOX we have emerged, and correct me if you think I'm wrong, but I think FOX News is the most powerful media agency in the world -- not just the country, but in the world."
Bill O'Reilly is easily the most watched and probably the most influential personality on FOX News; reading between the lines, one could infer O'Reilly's statement to mean he believes himself to be the most powerful media figure in the world. See the video after the jump.
O'Reilly asked media expert Bernie Goldberg if he agreed with his view. Goldberg disagreed, suggesting the New York Times wields more influence because it is read by everyone in Congress and many take its editorials as seriously as if they were written "from Mount Olympus."
O'Reilly countered by arguing, "FOX News can sway public opinion much faster than the New York Times." Get more at TV Squad.
