Re: “Mr. Cope's Cave: Grilling O'Reilly

Fox News finally stops pretending the Bill O’Reilly scandal is a liberal conspiracy!

O'Reilly has been accused of fabricating a number of stories from his early days as a reporter.

Bill O’Reilly has come under fire for fabricating a number of stories regarding his reporting in the Falklands War, El Salvador, and Florida, surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Recently, O’Reilly has also made up a story about a trip to Northern Ireland in 1984, during which time he said he witnessed terrorists bomb Irish citizens. As the controversy was unfolding, Fox News was steadfast in its support of the news anchor, saying that the allegations were “nothing more than an orchestrated campaign.”

Now, the network has been forced to reckon with growing evidence that O’Reilly was actually making a lot up. Of the Northern Ireland story, a Fox News spokesperson acknowledged that O’Reilly had not witnessed any bombings — but instead, was shown photographs of the incident.

Evidence clearly shows O'Reilly lied on many of his on-air broadcasts and in his books.

O'Reilly has been accused of fabricating a number of stories from his early days as a reporter.

But it wasn’t easy to hear. After Media Matters surfaced Morley’s reporting, CNN obtained a much more audible version of the taped conversation from Fonzi’s widow. It proves O’Reilly wasn’t on the scene when de Mohrenschildt died. You can hear Fonzi tell O’Reilly “he committed suicide,” as O’Reilly asks when and how (“they say he shot himself"). The Dallas-based reporter wraps the conversation by saying, “I’m comin’ down there tomorrow, I’m comin’ down to Florida,” and as he discusses grabbing a flight, it’s clear he wasn’t anywhere close. “Bill O’Reilly did not hear a gunshot from 1,200 miles away,” Morley told Stelter Sunday morning.
The Kennedy lie is different from the other charges against O’Reilly – although as the number of challenged O’Reilly claims mount, it’s possible to wonder how much more reporters have yet to uncover.
