O’Reilly Tears Into ‘Dishonest’ Media: Ignoring Benghazi to Protect Obama

Bill O’Reilly got incredibly fired up about the media Wednesday night, tearing into them for ignoring and overlooking the big Benghazi news this week for the sole purpose of protecting the president. O’Reilly took the news to conclude that individuals connected to the White House tried to get blame for the attack pushed on a video in the service of a purely political agenda.

O’Reilly was stunned that the big broadcast and cable networks, other than Fox, either completely ignored the news or only addressed it briefly. He declared, “That’s a scandal, that is proof the American press is dishonest, period. They’re covering up a cover-up… which might lead directly to the President of the United States.” And a number of big print publications also overlooked the story.

O’Reilly said that far beyond just not covering it in service of more superficial fare like Donald Sterling, the media is downplaying Benghazi “for one reason and one reason only: to protect President Barack Obama.”
