Bill O’Reilly has responded to accusations made by the magazine Mother Jones, who claimed in a new report that O’Reilly fabricated war stories when he covered the war in the Fauklands for CBS News. The Fox News host has called this report “total bullish*t.”
Though Mother Jones says that O’Reilly claimed to specifically be in the Faukland Islands, he says he did no such thing.
“If you were assigned to a war, you put on your resume you covered the Falklands, the Middle East, El Salvador, wherever it is where you were sent,” he told Mediaite. “That is what journalists do.”
“Everything I reported is absolutely accurate” he added, before going after Mother Jones and Washington Bureau Chief David Corn in particular for a “history of smears, lies, and gutter-sniping.” He also called Corn “a despicable human being.”
O’Reilly has sent a clear message that he has never lied or embellished war stories at any time in his career. Lower your pitchforks, liberals, because you’re not getting O’Reilly today!
