Bill O'Reilly

You have to admire Bill O'Reilly of Fox News. Not only has he totally embraced his collar and leash as one of the biggest mouths of the Slave Media's most "fair and balanced" outlets, but despite the truth, despite everything, despite even History Itself, O'Reilly soldiers on.

During an "interview" (actually an attempt by O'Reilly to bully retired General Wesley Clark), O'Reilly wandered into the hoary netherworld of Alternate History to state that soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division massacred German soldiers near the Belgian town of Malmedy in 1944.

Yes, you heard it right. Of course, Fox immediately edited out that bit from its transcript of the show, but others have alertly picked up on it, notably the good people over at crooksandliars.com.

For the record, US soldiers were massacred near Malmedy by German SS troops.

Bill O'Reilly should mind his manners, lest he receive a visit from current or past members of that elite airborne division. And Bill? You might want to invest in more health insurance.
