O'Reilly's Recent Books Mirror Work Of Deceased Author

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly has published two books -- and is working on a third -- about the deaths of historical figures whose deaths were also written about by a deceased journalist and columnist.

According to the conservative site Newsmax, O'Reilly's recent output (along with co-author Martin Dugard) echoes the work of former New York Daily News reporter Jim Bishop:


The late Jim Bishop, a veteran newspaperman who once reported for the New York Daily News and later was a syndicated columnist, saw his book "The Day Lincoln Was Shot" become a runaway best-seller in 1955.
A series of similar-themed books followed, with Bishop penning "The Day Christ Died" in 1957 and then in 1968 "The Day Kennedy Was Shot" -- a minute-by-minute account of JFK's 1963 shooting in Dallas.

O'Reilly has written Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy and is reportedly working on Killing Jesus, which is scheduled for publication in September.

(well I'll be.......)

1. Has anyone run his books

next to Bishop's to see if there are any "curiously similar" passages? His good buddy Ann Coulter seems to feel that lifting passages is a form of flattery so I wonder how he feels about it . . .

5. So let me get this straight. He had a ghostwriter, and STILL had to plagiarize???

Truly the definition of lazy douchebaggery.
