As much as I don’t like O'Reilly, one has to be honest and admit, it seems this is a hit piece by the left to get back at him for his anti Obama ISIS war rhetoric

This is old news about him its been dug up every few years

No pass, just an explanation,he was under a gag order too.
We ran WET black ops out of El Salvador against the Sandinistas,Reagan had a hard on to take them on then almost got caught so OLLIE took the fall so they couldn't go any higher.
He probably WAS shot at alot more that Mr' Williams.but he also doesn't really embellish his story about it.
He Can't.

No warrior just a reporter.

CBS though is claiming he was nowhere near any combat, none of their people were.never mind in combat. And he distinctly says he's been in combat and speaks as if he knows everything about it.

I think it's at least the equivalent of the big deal made of the Brian Williams hit piece.

It is getting good, so to recap..Bill is a boldfaced liar and lets his ego get in the way of facts n stuff.
I have little sympathy for Williams either..Williams is at least likeable.

The ex- comedian now Senator AL Franken from Minnesota use to torture O’Reilly with this kind of stuff

Its was hilarious watching O’Reilly duel with that guy... he would always get under his skin…to this day he hates his guts because he made a fool of O'Reilly

Yep. Not even embedded. Very few were. The rest were one to two thousand miles away from the combat zone, per CBS.

Awww I miss Al. What's he doing these days? It could be fun if he tweeted about this or something.

When Will Fox News Fire Bill O’Reilly For Lying About Combat Duty?


Fox News fire O'reilly? Fat chance...he'll probably get a pay raise. Fox loves themselves a good liar; especially when he is a great spinster.

O’Reilly denounces Mother Jones story on his war reporting



We report, you decide. I know. This was literary license. Not a lie.

One problem - O'Reilly is not an anchor. He is a pundit. There is a difference. If you watch O'Reilly expecting him to give you the straight up news, you're about as silly as all those hip, young things who think Jon Stewart was their straight up anchor.


Substitute the word "O'Reilly" with "Fox News" and you have more accurate statement.

Jon Stewart, being a comedian, is still more credible and honest in his reporting than anyone at Fox....and that says a ton.

FOX's last line of defense every time they get caught outright BSing is...Well, we are not the news! I am not an actual Anchor...disregard the Fox News Logo plastered all over the place...we were just kidding about being a news organization!

That is the real story...the one about credibility.

Brian Williams was demonized by the right as a "liberal" for reporting objectively.

And run out of the news by both the right, left and middle for being dishonest about whether he took fire or not while reporting from a war zone.

A Fox News Anchor lies about actually even being present in a war zone....and BIG YAWN....By Everyone..

It is as if the left, right and middle have abandoned any expectation of truth from right wing media.

Bill O'Reilly has nothing to worry about...There is no expectation of credibility for Fox News reporters...from ANYONE.

He was in El Salvador and WITNESSED combat.
So I suppose you COULD say he was "IN"it.


How so???



O'Reilly's account of his El Salvador mission is inconsistent with the report he filed for CBS News, which aired on May 20, 1982—shortly before he was dispatched to Buenos Aires. "These days Salvadoran soldiers appear to be doing more singing than fighting," O'Reilly said in the opening narration, pointing out that not much combat was under way in the country at that time. O'Reilly noted that the defense ministry claimed it had succeeded in "scattering the rebel forces, leaving government troops in control of most of the country." He reported that a military helicopter had taken him and his crew on a tour of areas formerly held by the rebels. (This fact was not included in the account in The No Spin Zone.) From the air, O'Reilly and his team saw houses destroyed and dead animals "but no signs of insurgent forces."

As part of the same 90-second story, O'Reilly reported from Meanguera, saying rebels had been driven out of the hamlet by the Salvadoran military after intense fighting. But this was not a wiped-out village of the dead. His own footage, which was recently posted by The Nation, showed residents walking about and only one or two burned-down structures. O'Reilly's CBS report gave no indication that he had experienced any combat on this assignment in El Salvador.

Ya he just said that he was in the middle of a couple firefights...
And that he has been in combat.

Seems like he is doing exactly the same thing.

I've reported on the ground in active war zones from El Salvador

"I was in the middle of a couple of firefights in South and Central America."

"I've seen soldiers gun down unarmed civilians in Latin America."

"I've been in combat. I've seen it. I've been close to it."


www.motherjones.com...

Now..Listen carefully....those things never happened. He is not claiming they did...he is just pretending he never claimed them..on air..repeatedly..

Try this...he inferred his non-existent presence in the Falklands was more heroic than the 123 Missions an Airforce pilot flew..


O'Reilly responded to a letter from a retired Air Force colonel, who said he had flown 123 missions over Vietnam and who criticized O'Reilly for supporting military action in Kosovo, by citing his Falklands war days: "Hey, Colonel, did you ever have a hostile point an M-16 at your head from 10 yards away? That happened to me while I was covering the Falklands war."


Continue to defend him all you like. It's your honor spend, not mine..

PROOF of WET black operations where US forces were in volved in Nicaragua? THAT won't ever happen.
Or proof of his gag order,a legally binding order given to a person not to speak of a subject either classified or under legal protection? In this case ALL swept UNDER the rug when Olliver North confessed he was the only responasable authority in order to sheild the administration as originally intended.


You won't find it just after the fact stuff and conspiracies
