Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has been weathering a storm of attacks from liberals over the last few weeks. The left has largely accused the news host of lying about war stories he told from when he covered the Fauklands War in 1982. A petition has even been circulating in an effort to convince Fox to fire O’Reilly.
The network, however, appears to be sticking by the host.
In a prepared statement, Fox News said, “Bill O’Reilly has already addressed several claims leveled against him. This is nothing more than an orchestrated campaign by far left advocates Mother Jones and Media Matters.”
“Responding to the unproven accusation du jour has become an exercise in futility,” Fox continued, according to Conservative Tribune. “FOX News maintains its staunch support of O’Reilly, who is no stranger to calculated onslaughts.”
We applaud Fox for having the courage to stand by O’Reilly in the face of all these attacks. Sorry, liberals, but Bill isn’t going anywhere anytime soon!
