oh really? no, o'reilly!

speedkill points out how bill o'riley dissembles when it comes to criticism of himself. this time he's especially disingenuous in his labeling as "dishonest" the seattle post intelligencer for accurately reporting on the time when bill told the son of a 9/11 victim to, quote, "shut up! shut up!" unquote, on his faux news program.

speedkill ably deconstructs o'riley's manipulation of the facts:

[o'reilly] claims "glick was saying without a shred of evidence that president bush and bush the elder were directly responsible for 9/11. now that kind of stuff is not only loony, it's defamation." but he's not. he's saying dubya is continuing the legacy, by bombing afghanistan, of his father, who armed the precursor to al qaeda in afghanistan in the 80s. he's not mentioning 9/11! o'reilly twists it, because he knows he can't deny the fact that we armed the muhjadeen through the pakistanis during the cold war. It's undeniable.
