Before you watch this, you might want to look up something of the MalmÃƒÂ©dy massacre (good sources at HistoryNet or at Wikipedia). That out of the way, watch this video in which Keith Olbermann again points out how horribly wrong Bill O’Reilly is, even when O’Reilly tries to tell his fans that he didn’t say what he said. The really disgusting thing is Fox News changed the transcript of the broadcast to make it appear that O’Reilly did not say what he clearly said – two times. I think Bill O’Reilly is an even worse mouthpiece than Rush Limbaugh, so seeing someone point out anything he does which is this horribly wrong just makes me happy.
Olbermann: Abraham Lincoln did not shoot John Wilkes Booth. The Titanic did not sink a North Atlantic iceberg. And Fox News is neither fair nor balanced. These are simple historical facts intelligible to all adults, most children, and some of your more discerning domesticated animals. But not, as the third story on the countdown proves yet again, not to Bill O.
I have downloaded this video (thanks to the VideoDownloader extension for FireFox), but at nearly 20 Meg, I cannot afford the bandwidth to post it here for all visitors. If you cannot get to the YouTube to watch the video, give me your email address in the comments section (appropriately obfuscated to avoid harvesting bots if necessary) and I’ll post it somewhere and shoot you a link.
