Sign the petition: Fox News must suspend Bill O'Reilly for his lies about combat
Journalists should be held to standards. Brian Williams was suspended from NBC News for 6 months for lying about being in combat. Bill O'Reilly must likewise be suspended for his false statements about being in combat in the Falklands.
Why is this important?
David Corn of Mother Jones published a scathing article exposing Bill O'Reilly's lies that he was involved in combat in the Falklands. In 2013, Bill O'Reilly stated:
"I was in a situation one time, in a war zone in Argentina, in the Falklands, where my photographer got run down and then hit his head and was bleeding from the ear on the concrete. And the army was chasing us."
Yet in his own memoir O'Reilly doesn't describe even being anywhere near the Falkland Islands. After the Mother Jones piece was published, O'Reilly lashed out at David Corn by calling him a "despicable guttersnipe."
Journalists should be held to standards. Brian Williams was suspended from NBC News for 6 months for lying about being in combat. Why should it be any different for Bill O'Reilly?
Sign the petition and tell Fox News to suspend Bill O'Reilly for his Falklands combat lies.
