I read over 50 books a year.... and not even for free, would I consider reading a book by O'Reilly.

It's about Mr. O'Reilly, not by him.

Not if I were paid. Even to read a book about him, rather than by him.

I couldn't agree more... but didn't want want the opportunity to slip by those who might be so inclined.

Hmmm. Well, a book about him could be interesting. I'll see if my dad reads and reviews it.

The CliffsNotes version:

Book Description

Publication Date: April 7, 2015
Bill O’Reilly told his audience for years that prior to joining Fox News he was a hardened reporter with a distinguished career that had sent him to war zones from Northern Ireland to El Salvador, not just another cable news bloviator.

But over six weeks in February and March of 2015, O’Reilly’s self-professed journalistic history unraveled as reporters and advocates scrutinized the stories he had told about his exploits during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s.

The Fox News host became consumed by a media firestorm as his tales were exposed as inflated or false:

1) O’Reilly claimed he reported from a war zone in the Falklands; the closest he got to that conflict was Buenos Aires, the Argentine capital a thousand miles away.

2) O’Reilly claimed he witnessed civilians get killed during a protest in Buenos Aires; other reporters and a historian say no such deaths occurred.

3) O’Reilly claimed he was on the doorstep of a figure in President Kennedy’s assassination when that man committed suicide; this is debunked by evidence including his own taped statement.

3) O’Reilly claimed he saw nuns being executed in El Salvador; he later acknowledged he had only seen photos of the deceased.

4) O’Reilly has told two different stories about his El Salvador reporting trip; in one he says he witnessed a firefight, in the other he makes no mention of the dramatic events.

5) O’Reilly claimed to have seen terror attacks in Northern Ireland; he later admitted he had only seen photos of those events.

6) O’Reilly claimed to have been attacked by protestors while reporting for Inside Edition during the 1992 Los Angeles riots; this was subsequently disputed by six of his former colleagues.

Killing Truth tells the story of O’Reilly’s rise to prominence from local network correspondent to one of the most prominent and lavishly-paid in cable news; how he came to fabricate key elements of that rise in an effort to portray himself as a combat journalist; and how he and his network desperately sought to buttress his credibility as those stories fell apart.
