Bill O’Reilly lies about his war stories, just like Brian Williams. Actually, he’s worse than Williams because CBS has footage of what happened and who was there and Bill O’Reilly was no hero.
Butcha know, the people who watch Bill O’Reilly aren’t interested in the truth. They are interested in being flattered by a tall guy who went to Harvard. He’s the church lady’s crush. She will stand by her man no matter what he does or how much he lies. He’s the authority figure they crave even while they protest too much that they don’t need a man.
At least now, we can dispense with the pretense that he’s journalist with any kind of integrity. This is a shock to no one. Fox News is going to rally around his flag. He won’t get disciplined or fired. No, that’s for the liberal media that’s trying to take him down. Fox News operates under a different set of standards. And that’s fine as long as everyone is in on the joke.
