OReilly tries to weasel out of his support for public option: The internet is a safe haven for liars.


Last week, Fox News pundit Bill OReilly turned some heads when he declared his support for a public health insurance option. But last night, reverting back to true form, OReilly tried to weasel out of his prior comments. The internet is a safe haven for liars, OReilly told his audience, complaining that he was taken out of context. OReilly whined, They lied about it! He then invited right-wing media analyst Bernie Goldberg, who generally offers a sycophantic defense of OReilly, to back him up. But even Goldberg was having a hard time buying OReillys spin:

GOLDBERG: Bill, Bill, dont shoot the messenger. Right? Im your friend. Im telling you this as a friend. You also said, If the government can cobble together a cheaper insurance policy that gives the same benefits, I see that as a plus for the folks. Now, I know what you meant by that.

OREILLY: But I clarified it: private hands.

GOLDBERG: You did. You absolute you absolutely did. But youre a big prize for the left. But they can get What Im saying is when when you say when you say if the government can cobble

OREILLY: I clarified. I know what youre saying, but its just drives me crazy that you cant have an honest dialogue in this country

3. Well, I've learned my lesson.
I won't again accuse O'Reilly of backing something that helps the public.

4. I'm guessing he's making the argument that the clip was
taken out of context? That WAS him, right? Those were HIS words, right? So, what is there to lie about, Bill? If it's out of context then explain it, rather than calling internet using liberals liars.
