Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Bill O’Reilly

Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Bill O’Reilly March 27, 2015

The Bryan Fischer Award is given to those who show a breathtaking lack of self-awareness, accusing their opponents of their own worst sins. Bill O’Reilly is a first ballot Bryan Fischer Award Hall of Fame inductee. He’s practically the living embodiment of obliviousness to his own contradictions. Get a load of this:

Bill O’Reilly bemoaned the state of journalism on his show Tuesday night, telling his guest that when inaccurate reporting is left unchallenged, it “hurts the country.”

“If I made a mistake reporting at WCBS,” the Fox host said, “these guys were on me! You had to do it right!”

O’Reilly said that nowadays, journalists can throw any story out there and subsequently claim “well I didn’t report it, [someone else] did!”

The Fox host did not mention his own recent clarifications, saying that when he once claimed to have “seen” nuns shot dead in El Salvador and witnessed bombings in Northern Ireland, he simply meant that he had seen photos of them.

For crying out loud, Bill O’Reilly is the poster child for what’s with American journalism. He’s practically allergic to facts, can never admit that he’s wrong and has an ego that takes up all the space where his brain would be.
