O’Reilly: ‘Shame’ That ‘American Press Is so Corrupt’

O'ReillyBill O’Reilly took on the mainstream media earlier this week for covering stories like the New Jersey bridge fiasco more than scandals at the VA and the IRS.

“There is no question that the major national media in America is trying to protect President Obama and will promote the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” O’Reilly said on “The O’Reilly Factor” Wednesday.

O’Reilly pointed out that the network news dedicated 112 minutes in the first week of the bridge story, but when the VA scandal broke out, there was no coverage “for almost two weeks.” O’Reilly added that when news of lost IRS emails broke close to two weeks ago, there was just three and a half minutes combined on all of the network news broadcasts. “It is a shame that in a proud republic, in a vibrant democracy, the American press is so corrupt,” O’Reilly said.
