O’Reilly: No Backpedaling Here

Oh what do you know, Bill O’Reilly isn’t sorry. Responding to criticism that his attacks on George Tiller—he aired 29 segments about him in the past few years—may have helped incite his killer, O’Reilly said “No backpedaling here … I report honestly. Every single thing we said about Tiller was true, and my analysis was based on those facts.” While O’Reilly said that “Americans should condemn the murder,” he went on to say that “When I heard about Tiller’s murder, I knew pro-abortion zealots and Fox News haters would attempt to blame us for the crime. … Those vicious individuals want to stifle any criticism of people like Tiller. That — and hating Fox News — is the real agenda here. Finally, if these people are soooo compassionate — so very compassionate, so concerned for the rights and welfare of others — maybe they might have written something, one thing, about the 60,000 fetuses that will never become American citizens. Or am I wrong?”
