Bill O’Reilly Talks Father’s Day, JFK

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly talks to the AP about adapting his many books for TV.

“Killing Lincoln: was a hit for Nat Geo, and now “Killing Kennedy” is in production. O’Reilly is an executive producer of the TV adaptations, but he emphasizes that he doesn’t get in the way:

“I’m a creative guy and I don’t like meddling in my writing or my broadcasting,” O’Reilly said. “They run stuff by me but I’m a 90-percenter … they know what they’re doing. It’s a successful machine, so why do I want to muck it up? … They can take a little bit of a creative liberty to move the narrative, but they can’t change the facts. And it’s as simple as that.”

O’Reilly also appeared on CBS’ “The Late Show” for Father’s Day. He and David Letterman talked about their young kids, who are the same age (h/t Johnny $).
