Fox News’ O’Reilly on Electric Vehicles: ‘I’m for that’
For those who’ve become accustomed to Fox News pundits occasionally lambasting electric vehicles, judging by a spot on the O’Reilly Factor, and other recent broadcasts, one might begin to think they’re on the verge of turning over a new leaf.
As you can see in the clip below, Jesse Watters offers an audio-visual collage of apparently random people discussing cars at the recent New York Auto Show.
While commenting on a variety of vehicles types, the video leads up to the message that electric vehicles are conditionally OK in O’Reilly’s world.
Last year certain Fox pundits were known to specifically target “anything with a plug,” especially General Motors’ Chevrolet Volt, and even in this clip, the halo vehicle by the world’s largest automaker was conspicuously missing.
But if electric vehicles are the future, that’s great by O’Reilly, he says in response to Watters who briefly mentions the idea on the set of the O’Reilly Factor.
“The new technology I think we’re going to see is these electric cars, 100-percent electric,” Watters says.
“That’s good, we like that,” replies O’Reilly shaking his from head side to side.
Watters then goes on to mention wireless inductive charging at home, and O’Reilly says it’s all good, as long as the price comes down.
