I'm still trying to figure out why a cable pundit is supposed to be held to the same standards as a network news anchor...

How many times have I said I don't like pundits?...I don't trust any of them, and I don't see why anyone would...

Comparing Brian Williams to Bill O'Reilly is like comparing Peter Jennings to Al Sharpton or Sean Hannity or Chris Matthews...It's pure lunacy...

To be fair O'Reilly was a journalist/reporter back in the day. Today he is a pundit.

Not being a World Traveler I have never been to the Falkland Islands. I sure wasn't there during the war. This I do know though Mother Jones is pure D sh*t and yes the SOURCE does matter.

Nobody has to dig to find shoddy or overly imaginative reporters on FoxNews
I'm surprised this is the only one so far.
The reason I quit watching them even in real time ground reporting was that guy who lied and gave the situation at Saddam's "fortress"/compound area. Turned out the guy stayed in his hotel room and just made something up.

This attack on O'Reilly wasn't even a good one. Just a desperate attempt to distract from Brian Williams lying by screaming, "He did it too!" Only problem is Bill O didn't lie or come close to anything Williams did.

Sorry, libs, gonna have to keep digging.

Here's O'Reilly responding and debunking Corn's false allegations tonight.

And you guys don't understand why I watch CSpan for important events and surf the web and take a consensus for the rest. Ha!

Billo is a best selling author to the right. Don't try to act like he is a nobody. He doesn't make the millions he does because he is a nobody to the right.

He almost died three times Hairy. Was it from the food in the airport lounge or was he claiming he was in a war zone?
