You're right, that reporting was terrible, that site is a fake news propaganda outlet.

I get my news from good sources, I can tell you this, O'Reilly lies like a rug, only morons would think that lying piece of shit had even a shred of credibility.

You didn't believe him did you?

Proven media bias

You are obviously an un-informed listener to the proven fake news sources, proven to have a strong media bias, by a recent Harvard Study:

Harvard Study: Media Coverage of Trump’s First 100 Days Sets 'New Standard' In Negativity

“Fox was the only outlet where Trump’s overall coverage nearly crept into positive territory—52 percent of Fox’s reports with a clear tone were negative, while 48 percent were positive. Fox’s coverage was 34 percentage points less negative than the average for the other six outlets.”
“CNN and NBC’s coverage was the most unrelenting—negative stories about Trump outpaced positive ones by 13-to-1 on the two networks,” the study found. “Trump’s coverage on CBS also exceeded the 90 percent mark. Trump’s coverage exceeded the 80 percent level in The New York Times (87 percent negative) and The Washington Post (83 percent negative). The Wall Street Journal came in below that level (70 percent negative).”

... gee - why is it when the media reports on what Trump does/says it's called 'negative reporting?' Should they paint a happy face on the negative things that Trump does/says so that they're not accused of 'negative reporting.'

Sounds like you want an avalanche of alternative facts on mainstream media rather than just what happened or what was said.

If what he did was negative, it's going to be a negative story. Period.

And since that's his m.o., get used to it.

First, your link is totally non-related. Here is what I assume you were trying to link:

https://shorensteincenter.org/news-c...irst-100-days/

Next, nice cherry picking. Please note the emphasis I am adding to the actual full findings summary:

Quote:
President Trump dominated media coverage in the outlets and programs analyzed, with Trump being the topic of 41 percent of all news stories—three times the amount of coverage received by previous presidents. He was also the featured speaker in nearly two-thirds of his coverage.

Republican voices accounted for 80 percent of what newsmakers said about the Trump presidency, compared to only 6 percent for Democrats and 3 percent for those involved in anti-Trump protests.

European reporters were more likely than American journalists to directly question Trump’s fitness for office.

Trump has received unsparing coverage for most weeks of his presidency, setting a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president, without a single major topic where Trump’s coverage, on balance, was more positive than negative.

Fox was the only news outlet in the study that came close to giving Trump positive coverage overall, however, there was variation in the tone of Fox’s coverage depending on the topic.
So it was mainly Republicans the media was quoting and even so they routinely shit on him.

Why you ask? Because he kept doing shitty things.

Of course, Faux Views was kind of, sort of supportive.
Thanks from Camelot

No, I was pointing out that Bill O'Reilly lies because he regards his audience as morons who don't have any clue what is really happening.
So O'Reilly stated that the main stream news media reported the story of the Muslim girl who was beaten to death as a hate crime against Muslims.
Yet I remember the story being reported as "road rage" right from the beginning on NPR, which I assume he counts as the MSM.
As a matter of fact, the only place I have seen that incident called a hate crime is in the O'Reilly piece you linked to.

The fact that the coverage of Trump has been negative, except on FOX, is actually pretty strong evidence that the reporting has been accurate, except on FOX, FOX being well known as a propaganda outlet for the GOP, and even FOX was much less positive than they ever were for other Republicans.
And remember, FOX fired O'Reilly, after years and years of settling claims became too much even for them to ignore.
O'Reilly is was and probably always will be a lying piece of shit, and if you choose a lying piece of shit as your news source, you know what that makes you...

Bill O'Reilly is just as much a liar as the mainstream media. They probably golf together on weekends, laughing about how they misdirect us with their constant left vs right nonsense.
