Jake Tapper on O’Reilly: ‘Oh, How the Sleazy Have Fallen’

CNN’s Jake Tapper tonight, in a special primetime edition of The Lead, briefly covered the Bill O’Reilly news and made one little aside about the former Fox newsman.

As we reported earlier tonight, O’Reilly resurfaced with a new edition of his No Spin News podcast. He briefly addressed his ousting from Fox amid the allegations of sexual harassment against him, saying he believes “the truth will come out.”

O’Reilly moved on to cover the news of the day, talking at one point about evolving the podcast into a “genuine news program.”

Tapper played part of what O’Reilly said tonight and then said, “Oh, how the sleazy have fallen.”
