Bill-O and his buddy Bernard Goldberg take up for their Fox cohort Andrea Tantaros and her comments that West Africans might come to the United States and go to a "witch doctor" instead of a hospital.
October 6, 2014

Fox's Bill O'Reilly and his buddy Bernard Goldberg were none to happy with CNN's Brian Stelter and his guest, Miles O'Brien for criticizing Fox's coverage of the Ebola outbreak and their cohort Andrea Tantaros show said that West Africans might come to the U.S. infected with Ebola, and then go to a "witch doctor" instead of the hospital. Goldberg not only defended her, but doubled-down on the assertion as well.

O’Reilly Hits CNN’s Stelter (‘Cheap-Shot Artist’) for Shot at Fox Ebola Coverage:

O’Reilly called Stelter a “notorious cheap-shot artist,” while Goldberg cited comments months ago from a British Red Cross worker who said there are plenty of people in Sierra Leone who believe ebola is a punishment or “a result of witchcraft.” He said the reality is some African citizens are “backward people” who just don’t believe in modern science.

And so for Stelter and O’Brien to find something strange in what Tantaros said, Goldberg only had one thing to say: “Shame on Brian Stelter and Miles O’Brien. They have no idea how their liberalism affects and infects their journalism. Shame on them.”
