Dear Phil Griffin, President of MSNBC
Why is MSNBC not covering the revelations about Bill O'Reilly's distortions?
Does MSNBC not consider it newsworthy to cover a major news host lying about being in war zones and being attacked by riot protestors? Seem pretty egregious to us!
O'Reilly “misreported" his experience in Argentina during the Falklands War in 1982.
A former colleague claimed that O'Reilly also lied about being present at a Florida suicide.
Several other former colleagues now claim that Bill O'Reilly also lied about his experience covering the Los Angeles riots in 1992. O’Reilly said, "They were throwing bricks and stones at us. Concrete was raining down on us. ... The cops saved our butts that time.” But six people who worked alongside him at the time say they have no recollection of being attacked by protesters.
And more allegations have emerged regarding inaccuracies in a story O'Reilly had told about witnessing the murder of four churchwomen during the civil war in El Salvador.
This news must be reported on!
The American people rely on sources like MSNBC and, sadly, Fox News to bring them accurate, honest information.
So why is MSNBC burying this critical story, that has the potential to educate millions on the realities of the fabrication factory that is Fox News?
Don’t stoop to their level. Do your job and cover the O’Reilly distortion story. Don't be scared off by his threats and by fox news fear tactics.
