Six news colleagues saying Bill O’Reilly lied about war coverage.
There are now a half a dozen journalists and personnel from CBS who were working O’Reilly on the ground in Buenos Aires who dispute his claims.
The evidence suggests that Bill O’Reilly is lying. Brian Williams got suspended for six months without pay for doing the same thing that O’Reilly. Both men exaggerated events to make them appear to be more dangerous. The difference is that NBC News is interested in journalism. Fox News isn’t.
The next step in Fox News’s defense of O’Reilly will likely be to call him a commentator, not a journalist, but O’Reilly tries to sell himself as a journalist on a nightly basis on Fox News. A large veterans group is calling for O’Reilly to be taken off the air. The media is afraid of Fox News and O’Reilly, but the hypocrisy must stop.Brian Williams was suspended and taken off of the air. Fox News must do the same to Bill O’Reilly.
Reminds me of that old Irish toast: “What is an Irishman? First of all, he’s a man with so much respect for the truth, he uses it only on special occasions!”
