Group Releases Book of Bill O'Reilly Lies

The left leaning Media Matters is out with a book called "Killing Truth: The Lies And Legends Of Bill O’Reilly.

Media Matters says the  56-page, 6-chapter ebook details the many alleged inaccuracies surrounding Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and his so-called "war reporting" experiences over the years. 

The controversy around O'Reilly first began in February when left-leaning political magazine Mother Jones published an article accusing the Fox News host of embellishing the violence he witnessed while covering the Falklands War in 1982 for CBS News. O'Reilly claimed to have "reported on the ground in active war zones" and "survived a combat situation," despite being stationed in the Argentine capital of Buenos Aries some 1,200 miles away from the fighting. 

What followed was a deluge of accusations hurled at O'Reilly, with media organizations and former colleagues charging the host with fibbing about everything from his coverage of El Salvador's civil war to witnessing deadly bombings in Northern Ireland to being attacked while reporting on the LA riots to hearing a gunshot ring out at a JFK-related suicide in Florida. 

"We really wanted to put all this information, all this damning evidence, in one place so people could get a useful overview of what O'Reilly's been doing in terms of manufacturing his past," Boehlert said in an email to The Huffington Post. "When this story unfolded over the winter, it did so over several weeks as more and more revelations came out. People might have lost track of all the confirmed contradictions and this book was a good way to present it in one telling." 

We're guessing Bill O'Reilly will not be reading this one.
