Bill O’Reilly went after the media tonight for what he believed was some crystal clear proof of liberal bias: “a news blackout” of all stories negative to the Obama administration while doing lots of hyping over BridgeGate. O’Reilly said this is not only partisan, but a dangerous exercise in “subverting American democracy.”
O’Reilly declared the Founding Fathers would be absolutely up in arms to see the media drop the ball on issues like the VA scandal and the IRS, thus exposing their “corruption” and “blatant partisanship.” And as an example of how the media colors people, O’Reilly cited himself, claiming that lots of people dislike him but cannot actually articulate why they dislike him because they just heard it from someone else.
The only positive news O’Reilly could find in all this is that the White House is so overwhelmed with bad news, the media won’t be able to contain it. He concluded, “It is a shame that in a proud republic and in a vibrant democracy that the American press is so corrupt.”
