Former CBS staffer Eric Engberg goes on CNN to rip Bill O'Reilly Falklands claims

Source: Baltimore sun

February 22, 2015, 3:34 PM

Former CBS News correspondent Eric Engberg followed his blistering Facebook post on Saturday about Bill O'Reilly with an appearance Sunday on CNN's "Reliable Sources.".

O'Reilly came under fire Thursday in a story in "Mother Jones" that claimed he exaggerated his wartime reporting in the Falklands much like suspended NBC anchorman Brian Williams had with his work in Iraq.

On Sunday, O'Reilly and Engberg squared off on dueling 11 a.m. media shows. Here is a story of O'Reilly blasting Engberg on Fox News' "Media Buzz."

And here's the transcript below of Engberg challenging O'Reilly on CNN. (link for entire transcript)

key passage about everyone staying in the hotel as Reilly said
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"What he just said was a fabrication, a lie. There were five CBS correspondents, including him, assigned to the bureau. They were under the direction of Larry Doyle, one of our very first field producers. You marines out there will understand what I was saying. He was a lurp in the marines in Vietnam before he went to CBS. He's a very skilled operator in combat and dangerous situations.

He sent all five of the correspondents and all 10 or 12 of the camera crew members out into the street. Nobody stayed in their hotel room because they were afraid."

This was broadcast this morning 11AM Eastern, and Enberg takes Reilly apart.

18. "Bill Orally" is a hat tip to "Faulty Towers"...

 

In the episode "The Builders" there's a scene that goes like this:

Manuel: You are men.

First Worker: Are you trying to be funny?

Manuel: Huh?

First Worker: I said, you trying to be funny?

Second Worker: Not here, spud.

Manuel: You are men with orally.

First Worker: What?

Manuel: You orally men.

First Worker: What does that mean?

Manuel: You orally.

First Worker: You watch it!

Manuel:Where orally?

First Worker (To Second Worker): What's he going on about?

Second Worker: He means O'Reilly.

Spud: Oh... That's right, yeah. We are "orally" men.

5. nothing is going to happen to O'Reilly

but it's nice to see him squirm.

I also think the rest of the media treats him with too much respect. maybe now....

6. BillO will explode in anger on air and insult everyone accusing him but will not actually address

the criticism. He will talk about lynch mobs and call for their heads etc blah blah blah

7. I'd try to egg him on to get him as mad as possible

not because I want him fired, but because I find his angry outbreaks divinely comedic. That "let's do it live" is comedic gold. I hope he sticks around to entertain us for years to come. Billo The Clown I believe is what Olbermann used to call him.

11. Nothing will happen to O'Reilly - because he is a Right Wing Shill

 

No outburst demanding his resignation, no indignation, no insult implied to the troops

All is forgiven as long as he keeps spewing Right Wing Talking Points

Its not about the truth - its about Suppressing the Truth

13. Wait a minute- the whole interview is not at the link- Where can I see the whole interview?

It cuts off right at the good part.

That said- Eric Engberg comes off as truthful, reliable, and professional. Almost as good as having Walter Cronkite castigate Bill O'Reilly.

19. O'Reilly doesn't even try to contain his duping delight in that video.

15. The difference between O'Reilly

and Brian Williams is, nothing will happen to O'Reilly... He will get to keep his job and continue embellishing his stories.

17. Funniest thing I've heard in a long time just happened on CNN

 

Just before 0830, Monday, 23 FEb, on CNN. Chris Cuomo was interviewing ?????, who reports on media matters.

After discussing O'Lielly's obvious bullshit, Cuomo asked his guest: "Given the audience that Fox cultivates, will it make any difference if O'Reilly is lying?"

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!ZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To which the guest replied: "Probably not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
