10. Bill O’Reilly

Fox News Host

Bill O’Reilly doesn’t try to hide his Long Island roots—he embraces the community values he learned growing up in Levittown. As one of the most entertaining commentators on Fox News, O’Reilly can be counted on to deliver the truth the way he sees it. And year after year millions of viewers of The O’Reilly Factor have liked what they see—and what he says. But don’t try to pigeonhole him as a right-wing pundit. His views are more diverse than that. And as if pontificating nightly for the nation weren’t enough, O’Reilly has found the time to pen best-selling books like Killing Lincoln: The shocking assassination that changed America forever and Killing Kennedy: The end of Camelot. Personally, we have a soft spot for Pinheads and Patriots: Where you stand in the Age of Obama for its no-holds-barred pique. But that’s just us.
