For O'Reilly, an oval office isn't an oval office

To all of you conservative literati who accuse liberals of being unkind to Bill O'Reilly's unique form of, eh,... sloppy work habits, I am passing along the latest word on the topic from Ford's Theatre in D.C. (The place where Abe Lincoln was fatally shot). The Theatre bookstore has removed Billo's new book,"Killing Lincoln, " from its shelves. Seems there were an inexcusable number of factual errors in his work that stands at the top of the New York Times best-seller list. Not that this makes any difference to O'Reilly , who already has cashed in on his pseudo historical authority. One reported example - one of many - his many references to Lincoln in the Oval Office, which legitimate historians will tell you wasn't built until long after his death. I know. It's the thought that counts with these guys. But those who ignore historical truths are destined to repeatedly skew them for their audiences.

O'Reilly is a factual error.

I was watching his show tonight and O'Reilly said that the book is in fact still available for purchase at the Ford Theatre gift shop.

It seems like once again, liberals are the one who do not have their facts straight.

Krautsucker,

Are you really that stupid or just someone who believes a pathological liar like O'Reilly?

KrautDawg, Once again you've failed to look both ways before darting into traffic.

This is from The Christian Science Monitor:

"If you’re looking for Bill O’Reilly’s book, "Killing Lincoln," in Ford's Theatre, where Lincoln was actually assassinated, you’re not going to find it there.

That's because the bookstore of the Washington, D.C. theater where the heinous act took place has declined to sell Mr. O’Reilly’s book about the assassination of our 16th president because, some historians say, it’s riddled with inaccuracies.

“Killing Lincoln” contains numerous factual errors and no documentation or footnotes, according to a study conducted by Rae Emerson, the deputy superintendent of Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site who recommended the book not be sold at Ford’s Theatre".

Let me know if that's not good enough source for you because "it seems" you don't have your facts straight.. On the other hand, keep crossing the street by yourself. I wouldn't want you to put your self out of the running for a Darwin Award.
