I am writing in response to the letter by Niel Johnson (The Examiner, Feb. 9. “O’Reilly acts entitled”). I am writing because I found the letter to be unfair and exaggerated. What the writer failed to mention is that Mr. O’Reilly donates millions of dollars each year to charities nationally and internationally and he generously supports the troops overseas with the money he makes from selling his books and items on the “Factor.”

Mr. O’Reilly is not an elitist, but, as he often describes himself, “a simple man.” Yes, he believes in capitalism, and hard work and personal responsibility. If you have ever read his books you will know that he was not always at  the top of his field but found the way there by effort and determination. He should be admired for those traits, not ridiculed. Mr. O’Reilly knows that health care needs reform as most of us do. However, he does not want a health-care bill that costs millions of dollars and nobody understands.

Bill watches out for “the folks,” as he refers to his listeners, and they in turn have rewarded him by making his show the number one cable news show for nine years running. I fear, sir, that you have been drinking the “Kool-aid” (Bill’s word, not mine).
