Jane Fonda Tells O’Reilly, Palin to Watch The Newsroom: ‘Hear the Logic’

Actress and left-wing activist Jane Fonda had a piece of advice for conservatives during an online chat hosted by the Los Angeles Times: tune in to her show, The Newsroom.

Bill O’Reilly, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, the tea partiers, Sarah Palin are the people that I wish would listen to it and really hear the logic of what is being said,” Fonda said. “It’s the tension between a news division, a news bureau, that’s trying to get good ratings as opposed to telling the truth, or telling what’s an important story, and it’s an important tension.”

Fonda, an outspoken liberal who has rankled conservatives for decades, plays the CEO of the network’s parent company on the HBO show, now in its second season. During the chat, she advised real-life media organizations to “try to tell the most important story in terms of the story that has the most effect on us as individual Americans, on our states and on our nation as a whole and on the rest of the world—and then try to tell them non-ideologically.”
