Last year, lying liar Bill O'Reilly, in imparting his pearls of wisdom through his "Tip of the Day," warned his folks about "deception" in the news. LOL, right? Last week, he continued his whine about liberal deception during yet another "Tip." LOL, for sure.
In yet another "pot, meet kettle" moment, Bill O'Reilly used his June 14th "Tip" to attack the Huffington Post. He started off with the unfounded statement - as Bill O'Reilly FACT - that "the Huffington Post "despises Donald Trump." He then told a Bill O'Reilly *LIE that the Huffington Post, OMG, "mocks" Trump "as an entertainer." (Guess BillO hasn't watched Fox's "The Five" which routinely mocks Obama, liberals, Democrats, and anybody else who doesn't meet the high standards of right wing orthodoxy.")
*Fact Check - As you can see in a small sample of Huffington Post articles about Trump (Here, Here, Here) they are covering him in a fact-based journalistic manner (something that can't be said about O'Reilly)
O'Reilly transitioned over to the Yahoo News Service which Bill, in performing a vital service to "the folks," has identified as "very left wing." Bill seemed a bit peeved about a Yahoo headline: "Steve Colbert Goads Bill O'Reilly Into a Big Admission About Trump." He noted that this headline was ripped from "the Trump-hating [wait for it] Huffington Post.
O'Reilly then explained "what really happened." He discussed how he and Colbert "discussed how Donald Trump is incorporating the Orlando terror attack into his campaign rhetoric." He noted that while "Colbert thinks it's wrong, I pointed out all politicians react to awful situations, Mr. Trump included." He continued, "while terrorism is a big issue for Trump, it's totally in context."
The patented Bill-whine continued: "But, of course, the Huffington Post doesn't point that out and Yahoo running it as a big headline is misleading everybody."
And then, the "Tip of the Day" - "Most internet news are far left, know that if you visit them." (Oh, thank you Bill for alerting us to this pernicious danger!)
Bill O'Reilly was being very misleading (dare we say lying) in his accusations against the Huffington Post. Despite O'Reilly's claim, there was "context." From that oh, so nasty article:
"At Colbert’s suggestion that Trump’s response was 'self-congratulatory,' O’Reilly responded, 'Yes, it is. He’s a politician. It shouldn’t shock you.' ["politicians react to awful situations.] Applause erupted when Colbert pointed out that it’s grandstanding. 'He wants to be president,' O’Reilly said. 'He’s using this terrorism issue to bolster his popularity.' ["terrorism is a big issue for Trump] 'So he’s making a political tool out of a terror attack,' ["so it's totally in context"] Colbert said. Said O’Reilly: 'That’s what he’s doing'."
So remind me who is doing the misleading?
