Fox's Bill O'Reilly Defends Himself From Accusations Of Fictionalised War Reporting


Bill O'Reilly Brian Williams

In another controversy regarding a journalist alleged to have embellished his war reportage, Fox news host Bill O’Reilly continues to come under fire for apparently over-exaggerating the danger he was in while covering the 1982 Falklands crisis in his book four years ago.

A former CBS colleague of O’Reilly’s, Eric Engberg, claimed in a lengthy Facebook post that they were not really in a combat zone, instead being caught up in little more than “routine reporting on a demonstration that got a little nasty.”

Colbert to Host Last Ever "Report" on Comedy Central This Thursday


Stephen Colbert David Letterman Bill O'Reilly

Rest in peace, The Colbert Report. Stephen Colbert’s pretend conservative pundit was so close to the real thing that at times we tended to forget it was all satire. Twitter certainly seemed to forget pretty often. But after almost ten years, the joke is almost over.

Will we finally see the real face of Stephen Colbert?

Colbert will host his final show on Comedy Central, before taking over The Late Show from David Letterman. It was a good run, a character that started a life of its own, after being modelled on a real, but equally outrageous public figure – Fox’s Bill O’Reilly. In fact, O’Reilly was keenly aware that the joke was on him – and he did NOT appreciated. The Fox News Channel icon once joked that the next book in his Killing series would be Killing Colbert. He is yet to fulfil that threat, though, while Colbert is steadily moving up.

"We have been sold this Islamaphobia, where criticism of the religion gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people," Harris had said. "It's intellectually ridiculous."

Oliver Stone Says 'Killing Kennedy' Is "Simplistic" And Admits He Won't Be Tuning In


Oliver Stone Rob Lowe Bill O'Reilly

Killing Kennedy is the National Geographic Channel's summarised view of the assassination of former president John F. Kennedy, a view that Director Oliver Stones thinks is skewed and hides a clear truth. The Rob Lowe-starring docu-drama will air on the network later this month, prior to the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination, and when it does, Stone won't be tuning in.

In a recent discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, the acclaimed moviemaker gave some of his own views on the death of the iconic president, admitting that he, like many others, believes that there is more to his assassination that a disturbed and disgruntled lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald. Based on the book co-written by conservative Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, Stone conceded that their view on the assassination opens up more questions than it does answer them.

Portraying JFK Was No Easy Task For Rob Lowe


Rob Lowe Ginnifer Goodwin Bill O'Reilly

The 50th anniversary of the tragic assassination of John F. Kennedy will take place later this month and to mark the occasion there will be no shortage of programmes dedicated to the late president going to air over the course of the month. One of them, the National Geographic Channel's Killing Kennedy, stars Rob Lowe in the title role, a role that was no easy task preparing for.

Lowe stars along with Ginnifer Goodwin, who plays his wife Jacqueline Kennedy, and Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald. Based on Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book by the same name, the one-off show will chronicle the events that eventually culminated with the assassination of the United State's 35th president on 22 November, 1963.

Mixing archive footage with recreated scenes, the show will look to understand the assassination and its aftermath better. But taking on such an icon role was no walk in the park for Lowe, as he explained to USA Today, stating that this kind of role is even "more difficult when you play an icon that people remember as well as they do Kennedy and are emotionally invested in his memory as they are in Kennedy."

Megyn Kelly Keeping Opinions To Herself on 'The Kelly File'


Megyn Kelly Bill O'Reilly

Megyn Kelly claims her new Fox News show The Kelly File will not echo the outspoken format of Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity's programmes.

Kelly is a quick-witted presenter, though despite being given a huge platform, the 31-year-old doesn't intend to become a partisan broadcaster.

"If you watch O'Reilly, you hear a lot about what Bill O'Reilly thinks" she told the Associated Press, "Sean Hannity, same thing. But you're not going to hear what I think."

Rob Lowe Signed Up To Take On JFK In New Biopic


Rob Lowe Bill O'Reilly

Actor Rob Lowe will take on one of his most famous roles to date, with the Parks and Recreation star lined up to portray the 35th President of the United States in the upcoming Bill O'Reilly helmed docu-drama Killing Kennedy. Variety reported that Lowe will be joined by co-stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald, Lee Harvey Oswald's wife.

Fresh from the success of the National Geographic's Killing Lincoln one-off, the network will follow-up the show with a tell-all account of the nation's second most famous assassination of all time. Clearly they have spared no expense by bringing in one of television's biggest stars to portray the deceased President, the show will be based on the O'Reilly novel of the same name and will follow the same formula used in Killing Lincoln.

Variety's report goes on to state that filming for the one-off special will begin in June this year, with the show expected to air on Nat Geo in November to coincide with the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. The docu-drama is likely to be one of many special on the assassination of President Kennedy, half a century after he was assassinated by former-Marine Oswald whilst being paraded through the streets of Dallas, Texas in an open top car.

Bill O'Reilly's Gay Marriage U-Turn? He's In!


Bill O'Reilly Megyn Kelly

Billy O'Reilly, gay marriage: two things that don't exactly go hand-in-hand. However, the Fox News and conservative pundit made waves last night for slamming the arguments AGAINST gay marriage. "I didn't hear anything articulated that was particularly persuasive," anchor Megyn Kelly said on Tuesday's O'Reilly show. "I agree with you 100 per cent," replied the host.

"The compelling argument is on the side of homosexuals," O'Reilly - who was always assumed to be against gay marriage - explained, "That's where the compelling argument is. 'We're Americans. We just want to be treated like everybody else.' That's a compelling argument, and to deny that, you have got to have a very strong argument on the other side. The argument on the other side hasn't been able to do anything but thump the Bible."

O'Reilly also noted "...next week I've got something that Kelly's really not going to like," which led many viewers to assume O'Reilly would be coming out in favour of gay marriage. "The gay marriage thing, I don't feel that strongly about it one way or another. I think the states should do it... New York has it, I'm fine with it. I want all Americans to be happy, I do," he said.
