A Collection Of Bill O Reilly's Lies From Punditfact

1. A Collection Of Fox News Lies - Part 1
2. News In America Is Dead: Fox News IS Fake News... It Has Had It's Own "Pizzagate" MANY Many Times! Yet No One Calls Em Out!

Punditfact is a new outfit that analyses statements and looks for facts in them. It's unfortunate that they are new cause Bill O Reilly has been lying for a very very long time. It would be nice if they could go through his career and point out all his lies. Anyways, I am working with what I have. This is just meant as an intro to Bill's perceptual lie machine.

His Punditfact file looks like this;

Here are Bill O Reilly's "Pants on Fire" Lies so far;

This is a standard Megyn Kelly type lie, i.e. 'I looked it up and found it to be inaccurate'. Unfortunately no one is tracking this stuff since Jon Stewart retired.

Huffington Post made a much larger collection which you can view here; Bill O’Reilly’s Right-Wing Buffoonery: A Brief Catalog

(I made an extract down below to scan through)

Extract from a Huffington post article with more details of this interesting lie by Pizzagate type killer, Bill O Reilly;

O’Reilly Repeatedly Demonized Abortion Provider Dr. George Tiller And Then Lied About It After Tiller Was Murdered
• O’Reilly Repeatedly Referred To Tiller As “The Baby Killer.” [6/2/09]
• In 2006, O’Reilly Sent His Producer To “Confront” The “Doctor Known As Tiller The Baby Killer.” [11/8/06]
• In 2007, O’Reilly Again Sent A Producer To Ambush The “Doctor Known As Tiller The Baby Killer.” [Fox News, The O’Reilly Factor, 6/12/07]
• After Tiller Was Murdered, O’Reilly Repeatedly Falsely Claimed He Had Only Reported What Other Groups Called Tiller. [6/2/09]
• O’Reilly Subsequently Accused Joan Walsh Of Having “Blood On Her Hands” For Defending Tiller. [Fox News, The O’Reilly Factor, 6/12/09]
• In 2012, O’Reilly Was Still Claiming That “What Tiller Was Doing Was Murder.” [Fox News, The O’Reilly Factor, 3/1/12]

Some of Bill's lies when the country needed truth the most (his lies helped Dick Cheney and Halliburton make a ton of money off oil in Iraq for which plans had been drawn up BEFORE 9/11 and these lies also helped kill 4000+ soldiers without their families getting any of the oil money they fought and died for, not to mention 1.2 million innocent people in Iraq);

More Examples of O’Reilly’s Lies and Distortions

• O’Reilly falsely claimed Bush didn’t oppose 9-11 Commission. O’Reilly defended President George W. Bush from a Kerry-Edwards ‘04 TV ad highlighting Bush’s opposition to creation of the 9-11 Commission by denying that Bush had ever opposed the commission. In fact, Bush did oppose the creation of the 9-11 Commission. (10/21/04)
• O’Reilly falsely claimed Iraq had ricin. O’Reilly responded to a caller to his radio show by defending the Iraq war: “They did have ricin up there in the north — so why are you discounting that so much?” In fact, the Duelfer report (the final report of the Iraqi Survey Group, led by Charles A. Duelfer, which conducted the search for weapons in Iraq following the U.S.-led invasion) indicates that Iraq did not have ricin. (10/19/04)
• O’Reilly repeated discredited claims on Iraq-Al Qaeda link. O’Reilly interrupted a former Clinton administration official who tried to correct the record on O’Reilly’s claim that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi constitutes a direct link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein’s Iraq. He also allowed a conservative guest to repeat without challenge other discredited claims about Iraq’s supposed involvement in terrorism — claims O’Reilly has himself cited in the past. (9/27/04)
• O’Reilly fabricated “Paris Business Review” as source for success of French boycott. O’Reilly falsely claimed “they’ve lost billions of dollars in France according to ‘The Paris Business Review’” due to an American boycott he advocated of French imports. Media Matters for America found no evidence of a publication named “The Paris Business Review.” (4/27/04)
• O’Reilly cited phony stats to argue that taxes on rich are excessive. O’Reilly tried to “blow off” the argument that wealthy Americans ought to pay more taxes by citing phony statistics about the tax burden the rich currently bear. (6/30/04)
• O’Reilly confused on elementary economics. O’Reilly told a caller on his radio show, “We [the United States] have a trade deficit with everybody, because everybody wants our stuff, and we’re not wild about snails” — indicating that he doesn’t know the definition of “trade deficit” and implying that the United States runs a trade surplus with France. In fact, in the first four months of 2004, the United States had a $3 billion trade deficit with France. (6/10/04)
• O’Reilly doctored quotation to suggest Soros wished his own father dead. During his smear campaign against progressive financier, philanthropist, and political activist George Soros, O’Reilly doctored a 1995 quotation by Soros to make it seem as if Soros wished his own father dead. (6/1/04)
• O’Reilly questioned if Kennedy would show up to Democratic convention ... as Kennedy spoke behind him. O’Reilly teased an upcoming segment of The O’Reilly Factor, broadcast live from the Democratic National Convention, by saying of convention speaker Senator Edward Kennedy: “When we come back, we’ll let you listen to Ted Kennedy for a while, if he shows up.” In fact, Kennedy had already shown up and had been speaking for several minutes, as O’Reilly need only have turned around to see. (7/27/04)
• O’Reilly disparaged Democrats with trifecta of voter falsehoods. In a discussion about what went wrong for Democrats in the November 2 election, O’Reilly claimed that Democrats “lost votes from four years ago”; that “18- to 24[-year-old]s didn’t go” to the polls; and that “[c]ommitted Republicans didn’t carry the day for the president; independents did.” All three claims are false. (11/4/04)
• O’Reilly on the radio: Three lies, one broadcast. Lie No. 1: Bush tax cuts didn’t create the budget deficit. Lie No. 2: “Socialistic” French, Germans, and Canadian governments tax at 80 percent. Lie No. 3: Canadian, British, and French media are “government-controlled,” but Italian media is free. (7/7/04)
