O’Reilly: Brian Williams Should Get Us Questioning Other News ‘Distortions’

Bill O’Reilly tonight started off his show with Brian Williams‘s suspension and said this should get people to start questioning the other “distortions” put out by left-leaning media outlets. O’Reilly spoke of how the Founders believed in a free and honest press and bemoaned how the current American press isn’t “half as responsible as the men who forged the nation.”

But O’Reilly didn’t just go after Williams, he said this is about a culture of deception in the liberal media. They need to, he said, “stop the corruption and begin telling the truth without an agenda,” otherwise the public’s trust in them will continue to plummet.

O’Reilly predicted that Williams would eventually return to NBC News, but not as the main news anchor. And he ended by telling his viewers, “Think about other news agencies that are distorting the facts.”
