Bill O’Reilly ‘Not Real Annoyed’ Networks are ‘Overdoing’ Robin Williams’ Death Coverage

Last night, Bill O’Reilly and guest Bernie Goldberg discussed the media’s coverage of the death of Robin Williams.

“This story I think is legitimate; I’m not real annoyed that the people are overdoing it,” O’Reilly said, adding that wall-to-wall media coverage of high-profile figure deaths began with the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1999. “Robin Williams deserves the adulation he’s getting, he deserves the attention he’s getting, and hopefully the depression thing will become forefront.”
