Calling O'Reilly Out on False Facts......

here is where O'Reilly is  actually wrong....as in incorrect.....

Forever Sean Hannity began his radio show by saying the goal was to "take back America."

Every time I heard  that I thought take back America from who?

He finally quit using that line after President Obama was reelected.

It was  not only a mean statement as the opening and premise of the show  but it was also  stupid.....who voted for President Obama.......

Who makes up  the voting population of our country--we are a beautiful coat of  many colors--now everyone has a place in the political conversation thanks to President Obama.

This is what Fox News can never get.

They are  not only offensive but they are out of touch with reality.

Also, on thurs  night he said he would have a  factual piece on gun control and why the UK system would not work here in the US.  He was going to have the true facts and figures to prove it.

Well, on Friday night he completely skipped over the issue.....why.

Let him have on his show law enforcement from the UK or other countries in Europe and display the  facts and figures...would that work here in different parts of the country....how does it actually work there.

For instance what kind of gun issues do they have in the city of London compared to New York....I  dare O'Reilly to do it and see what facts are actually out there.

Let O'Reilly have Piers Morgan on his show and really get down to the true facts of gun control if  he loves America so much as  he claims.

Instead on Friday night  he  shouted about the 2nd  Amendment and  stated it would never go anywhere and that is all there is.

It was like he had a conversation with Roger Ailles about actually showing gun control and solutions of the problems but at the end of the day Roger said no.

O'Reilly is always claiming no spin and the facts.....let's see if he is  really up  to it on guns.....or is he afraid of the truth?

Bill O’Reilly attacks friend of deceased pastor for linking Fox News’ rhetoric to Charleston massacre

"I know he was your friend," O'Reilly said, but Pastor Pinckney would have disappointed in your attacking Fox News VIDEO

Bill O'Reilly attacks friend of deceased pastor for linking Fox News' rhetoric to Charleston massacreBill O'Reilly, Todd Rutherford (Fox News)
Thursday night on “The O’Reilly Factor,” host Bill O’Reilly spoke to Charleston lawmaker Todd Rutherford, a friend of Pastor Clementa Pinckney, about comments Rutherford had made earlier on CNN in which he claimed Fox News’ rhetoric is partially responsible for Dylann Roof murdering nine people in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.
Rutherford told CNN that when Roof “watches things like Fox News, where they talk about things that they call news, but they’re really not [and] use that coded language, they use hate speech, they talk about the president as if he’s not the president” — that primes people like Roof to “walk into a church and treat people like animals, when they’re really human beings.”
O’Reilly took issue with both Rutherford’s characterization of the network. “You said something that bothered me a little bit,” he said. “Are you going to stand by [what you told CNN]?”
“Absolutely,” Rutherford replied. “It’s disturbing to African-Americans to watch stories on Fox News as to whether the president is truly the president, or whether he was really born in this country.”
O’Reilly denied that anyone on Fox News had ever espoused birther beliefs — when, in fact, many Fox News personalities, including Hannity and “Fox & Friends” regular Donald Trump, did so on numerous occasions — and then attacked Rutherford for saying that Roof watched Fox News, because there’s no evidence that he did.
Despite having just played the clip in which Rutherford claimed that Roof watched programming “like Fox News,” O’Reilly insisted that he claimed Roof watched the network itself, and couldn’t be disabused of the argument. “You said, ‘he watches Fox News,’” O’Reilly erroneously repeated.
“You’re equating what Dylann Roof did in that church to our commentary?” he asked. “Are you saying that Fox News justifies brutal crimes against black Americans?”
You said that,” Rutherford replied. “This is exactly what I’m talking about. You are inflaming the rhetoric.”
“I’ve got say,” O’Reilly concluded, “I know you’re a good friend [of Senator Pinckney] and I know you’re upset, but I don’t think he would’ve embraced your kind of rhetoric today.”
