The Ravings of the Dead and Dying

Roger Ebert, movie reviewer and columnist for the dying, liberal Chicago Sun-Times newspaper, took a blast at Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly in his syndicated column on April 7.  

He took a bigger swipe at the previous owners of the Sun-Times, too.  In doing so, he shows that he believes that bad management is causing the newspaper's demise.  He does not mention falling circulation and plunging advertisement revenues.

Mr. Ebert is angry because O'Reilly called for an advertising boycott of the failing newspaper.  Mr. Ebert called O'Reilly a NAZI sympathizer.

Mr. Ebert wrote: 

Yes, the Sun-Times is liberal, having recently endorsed our first Democrat for President since LBJ. We were founded by Marshall Field one week before Pearl Harbor to provide a liberal voice in Chicago to counter the Tribune, which opposed an American war against Hitler. I'm sure you would have sided with the Trib at the time.
