Now that Bill O’Reilly has been caught in multiple lies over a long period of time, he’s doing what he always does when he’s caught red-handed: Calling people names and trying to distract attention away from himself, this time by invoking the terrorists.
On the February 24 edition of Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, O’Reilly attempted to shift focus away from scrutiny surrounding discrepancies in his accounts of his reporting career by claiming that Fox News is under attack. Pointing to criticism disputing his claims about covering the 1982 Falklands War as a CBS News correspondent, O’Reilly claimed that despite rebutting such criticism, the media attacks against him have been “vicious, it’s more vicious now than it [has] ever been.” O’Reilly asserted that the reason he and his Fox News colleagues are under attack is because “Fox gives voice to conservatives and traditional people,” and are “putting tremendous pressure on the Obama administration to fight the terror savages,” and holding Hillary Clinton accountable ahead of a potential 2016 presidential bid. O’Reilly added, “On a personal note, I’m pretty tired of all the garbage.”
Yeah? So are we. Maybe you should shut up then. You lied, Bill, repeatedly. You’ve been caught. And because you’ve been caught and the evidence is obvious for all to see, all you can do is bully and threaten people and question the motives of those who caught you.
