I AM NOT THAT GUY

These Are the Questions Bill O'Reilly Won't Answer

On Thursday, Mother Jones published an article by Daniel Schulman and me that documented how Fox News host Bill O'Reilly has mischaracterized his wartime reporting experience. Most notably, he has more than once said that during his short stint as a CBS correspondent in the 1980s, he was in the "war zone" during the Falklands war between the United Kingdom and Argentina in 1982. He even once told the story of heroically rescuing his cameraman in this "war zone" while being chased by army soldiers. Yet according to O'Reilly's former CBS colleagues in Argentina and other journalists there during the war, no American journalist reached the war zone in the Falkland Islands and other territories iin the southern Atlantic Ocean during this conflict. O'Reilly and his colleagues covered the war from Buenos Aires, which was 1200 miles from the fighting.

Mother Jones sent O'Reilly and Fox News a detailed list of questions at 8:30 am on Thursday.

Here, for the record, are the questions we sent to Fox. (We included links to his past assertions to make it easy for O'Reilly to review what he said.) Will he answer these questions?

Did Bill O’Reilly have his Brian Williams moment with statements about being in Falklands War?

The left is PissedOFF big time. They will extract part and play with it like a cat with a mouse. Here's the full story:

Fox News Channel “O’Reilly Factor” host Bill O’Reilly responded to allegations made by Mother Jones that he misrepresented some of his reporting in Argentina and El Salvador on Friday.
Transcript as Follows:
“Hi, I’m Bill O’Reilly thanks for watching us tonight, more proof the American media is corrupt. That is the subject of this evening’s Talking Points memo. This man, 56-year-old David Corn, who works for the far-left magazine, Mother Jones smeared me, your humble correspondent, yesterday saying I had fabricated some war reporting.
Mother Jones, which has low circulation, considered by many the bottom rung of journalism in America. However, in this Internet age, the defamation they put forth gets exposure. And so I have to deal with this garbage tonight. I’m sorry. Basically, David Corn, a liar, says that I exaggerated situations in the Falklands War and the Salvadoran War.
Here’s the truth, everything I’ve said about my reportorial career, everything, is true. 33 years ago in June, Argentina surrendered to Great Britain, ending the Falklands War. I was covering the conflict from Argentina and Uruguay for CBS News. After learning of the surrender, angry mobs in Buenos Aires stormed the presidential palace, the Casa Rosada, trying to overthrow the government of General Leopoldo Galtieri.
I was there on the street with my camera crews. The violence was horrific, as Argentine soldiers fired into the crowd who were responding with violent acts of their own.
My video of the combat led the ‘CBS Evening News’ with Dan Rather that evening. And later on, I filed a report, that ran nationwide.
That’s what happened.
I never said I was on the Falkland Islands as Corn purports. I said I covered the Falklands War, which I did. Now, in what I consider to be a miracle, I found this CBS internal memo from 33 years ago, praising my coverage that day. The cable was sent to the CBS bureau chief in Buenos Aires by the news desk here in New York City:
‘Doyle, O’Reilly didn’t have the time last night, but would like to say many thanks for the riot piece last night. WCBS-TV and WCAU-TV both took the entire piece, instead of stripping it for pix. They called to say thanks for a fine piece.’ ‘Thanks again. Your piece made the late feed, a winner last night.’
Want more? Here it is:
Shortly after my crew and I escaped grave danger on the streets of Buenos Aires, I wrote to CBS News boss Ed Joyce, praising the crew’s bravery. I have the letter:
‘The crews were great…the riot had been very bad, we were gassed, and shot at, and I had the best vantage point in which to report the story.’
So, we have rock solid proof that David Corn smeared me, and some websites that picked up his defamation, did as well. Now, I had to spend hours last night on the phone with various reporters, and crawling around my basement covered with dust to find documents from 33 years ago. Again, it was a miracle I found them. All because an irresponsible guttersnipe, a far-left zealot who has attacked Fox News many times before, spit this stuff out on the net.
And you know what? Nothing is going to happen to David Corn.
Mother Jones and the far left websites couldn’t care less about the truth. They’re in business to injure. This is a political hit job. At this point, TV coverage has been scant, but CNN tried to exploit the situation because a guy over there named Brian Stelter is another far left zealot masquerading as a journalist. CNN can do a lot better than this guy.
Real journalists knew the story was BS from the jump. They knew Corn was trying to take the Brian Williams situation and wrap it around my neck for ideological reasons because he has a history of attacking Fox News. In addition , Corn actually wrote that I hammered Brian Williams , when everyone knows I went out of my way on ‘Kimmel’ and the ‘Factor’ to be compassionate to the man. Corn must think the folks are as dumb as he is.
The whole scandal reminds me of another guy who got completely away with it. That man is Al Franken, who, years ago, accused me of faking my working class upbringing. He actually said in public, many times, I was not raised in Levittown. He ran around telling that to the media, who gleefully printed his words.
The despicable Franken, perhaps the biggest liar I have ever known, wouldn’t even retract when I produced this: The deed to my parent’s house it says ‘Levittown,’ Al
But you, a dishonest smear merchant, wouldn’t retract your false story. And I’m sure Corn won’t either. And what happened to Al Franken? He was elected a Senator from Minnesota.
And that’s the memo.”

There is more to him being an idiot. He is still trying to recover from the sexual harassment scandal.. Chances are Fox can't cover for him anymore and they are throwing him under the bus, finally.

http://www.dcclothesline.com/2014/07/28/bill-oreilly-sexual-harassment-case-fox-news-wants-forget/

On October 13, 2004 O’Reilly was sued in a sexual harassment lawsuit for $60,000,000 by his former producer named Andrea Mackris. Mackris was an employee of Fox from 2000, with lawsuit documents showing O’Reilly’s rabid sexual harassment began in May 2002 and continued until September 2004. Mackris filed a wild document full of O’Reilly’s exploits. The fallout was immense, with O’Reilly counter-suing Mackris for extortion before finally settling the lawsuit for an untold amount of money that is generally believed to have been in the millions of dollars. I suppose that I could stop there with the story, but what fun would that be?

Before the case was settled a salacious 22-page document was presented to the court where Mackris was said to have various audio recordings of O’Reilly calling her numerous times to enact his sexual fetish of phone sex. The sordid scenario began innocuously enough. Mackris was informed on May of 2002 that she would no longer employed by FOX for $56,000 a year. O’Reilly heard of this and invited Mackris to dinner where he informed her that she was re-hired and with a raise to $65,000! What a guy, right? Always looking out for his employees, but all was not what it seemed. After giving Mackris the good news O’Reilly made his move. From the original court documents:

It's not really comparing apples to apples. Williams is a journalist and we expect him to tell the truth. O'Reilly is an idiot and we don't.

O'reilly is no leader to anyone dude. Unlike YOUR leader, that 0bozo guy, O'reilly actually answered the accusations against him. But hell, what does that matter anyway when you can keep walking in the shadow of your leader's food stamp line. Obviously you're very proud of him. Nothing wrong with that. You go!
