O’Reilly Goes After WaPo for Conflict of Interest Over ‘Vicious’ Killing Reagan Columns

bill2Bill O’Reilly ended his show tonight by going after The Washington Post in his ongoing fight against critics of his book Killing Reagan.

Last month, four historians wrote an op-ed that WaPo ran heavily criticizing the facts in O’Reilly’s book (O’Reilly strongly fired back against them). Then Fox contributor George Will wrote a column ripping into the book as a “no-facts zone.” And after he and O’Reilly sparred on TV, Will wrote another column on O’Reilly’s “carelessness” about history.

Both of Will’s columns also ran in WaPo, and today O’Reilly had some words for the newspaper running three “vicious” columns against him.

He told his audience that the paper refused to run his rebuttal column and then revealed that Fred Ryan, the publisher and CEO of The Washington Post, is the chairman of the Reagan Library Foundation.

O’Reilly called that a huge conflict of interest, claiming Ryan does not want the truth he reveals in his book to be told.
