Power Panel of Cenk, Ben, John, and Jimmy Dore. Mother Jones has published an extensive article claiming that Bill O’Reilly has a similar problem that Brian Williams had with exaggerating his wartime experiences while covering the Falklands War in 1982. Videos of his multiple instances of bragging about his coverage and heroism. Breakdown of O’Reilly’s stories versus the lies he told. O’Reilly’s stories of San Salvador being burned to the ground with fighting going on around him were also debunked by Bill’s own report from 1982. He is responding to the outrage with defiance, by pointing out that he’d be cleared and putting the Mother Jones reporter David Corn in the “Kill Zone.” Cenk predicts that O’Reilly pitting this as one side vs the other will cause people to think its just one man’s word against his.
