    We'll see what comes from it.

    To be honest with you, I would take the article more seriously if it came from another publication. Mother Jones has an agenda (like most "journalists"), so I will reserve judgment for now.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Agree.

    Saw Mother Jones and was like, "ugh".

    And David Corn...to boot.

    Not saying it's not valid though.

    Yup. He has hated O'Reilly for years too. Corn got bitch slapped pretty bad for some typical shoddy journalism and hasn't recovered since. Mother Jones is a joke.

    Default O'Reilly's response

    O’Reilly Defends Reporting, Hits CNN Host He Says Is ‘Far-Left Zealot Masquerading as a Journalist’


    Fox News host Bill O’Reilly again blasted Mother Jones Friday, calling the publication a “far-left magazine” which is “considered by many the bottom rung of journalism in America.”

    The strong words came one day after the liberal publication published a story alleging the famed Fox News host repeatedly misled viewers about his war reporting.


    O’Reilly immediately disputed the report, calling it a “bunch of lies” in an interview with TheBlaze Thursday. On Friday, he turned to his television program to again slam the publication and direct his ire at the author.

    “In this Internet age, the defamation they put forth, gets exposure,” O’Reilly said, according to a transcript of his “Talking Points Memo” published online. “And so I have to deal with this garbage tonight.”

    Calling Corn a “liar” and “guttersnipe” who “smeared” him, O’Reilly reiterated that “everything I said about my reportorial career, everything, is true.”

    “Mother Jones and the far left websites couldn’t care less about the truth,” O’Reilly said. “They are in the business to injure. This is a political hit job.”

    The Fox News host then directed his criticism to CNN, specifically the outlet’s media reporter Brian Stelter who O’Reilly has been at odds with before.

    “At this point, TV coverage has been scant, but CNN tried to exploit the situation because a guy over there named Brian Stelter is another far-left zealot masquerading as a journalist,” O’Reilly said. “CNN can do a lot better than this guy.”

    “Real journalists knew this was B.S. from the jump,” he added.

    CNN’s Don Lemon on Thursday opened up his nightly program with Stelter Thursday, attempting to draw similarities between allegations against O’Reilly and the scandal that resulted in “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams’ suspension.

    Stelter wrote on Twitter Friday evening that he had requested an interview with O’Reilly, but said it had been declined.

    Update: Fox PR says no interview.

    I am not necessarily a fan of Billdo - nor am I a hater - but I agree with him about MoJones.

    Yeah hard to take anything that Mother Jones says seriously.

    Not saying it couldn't be true but right now it appears its just in response to Brian Williams. The left want a guy on the right to fall down.

    This idea, one of theirs for one of ours, is just so frustrating.

    Default Ex-NBC Bureau Chief Backs Up O’Reilly’s Account of Falklands War Riot

    February 23rd, 2015

    Two former CBS reporters have strongly disputed Bill O’Reilly‘s accounts of what happened one night when they covered a riot in Buenos Aires, but on The Factor tonight, O’Reilly brought on a former NBC News bureau chief who backed up his story.

    Don Browne was the NBC News Miami bureau chief at the time, and he oversaw the network’s Falklands coverage. And Browne told O’Reilly his account was accurate. As opposed to some of the other accounts, which have to some extent downplayed the danger, Browne said the situation “got progressively more intense” and there were demonstrations in Buenos Aires every day.

    Both O’Reilly and Browne recalled a “very intense situation where people got hurt” and how “this was an extremely violent and volatile situation” where reporters were in danger.

    O’Reilly also spoke with Mediaite’s own Joe Concha, who wrote a column this week questioning the motivations of O’Reilly’s attackers. Concha told O’Reilly that Mother Jones is in the business of throwing red meat to progressives, and beyond that, the story isn’t making much headway anyway

    I would have to consider Brian Williams and Bill O'Reilly to be journalists to get too upset over them either right out lying or embellishing the facts. They are storytellers reading from a teleprompter.

    O'Reilly was no Brian Williams. The man has done some tremendous work over the years. He tapped into what was happening in the country way before the Tea Party or Trump did. His book "Culture Warrior" was almost prophetic. The man predicted an Obama like presidency during the Bush years in that one.

    If he's truly gone it will be a tough loss for FOX. O'Reilly was not only #1 in cable news, at times he was #1 in ALL of cable. Think about that, he is the #2 watched program in ALL OF CABLE PROGRAMMING.

    I Don't see him riding off into the sunset The guy has a massive and loyal following.
