Bill O'Reilly on John Edwards

10 August 2007

Presidential candidate John Edwards recently spoke critically of FOX News, and has refused to participate in a FOX News moderated debate. O'Reilly expressed shock at this behavior, and suggested that Edwards would be treated fairly. According to O'Reilly, "33 times he was on, and we've pored over the transcripts, and there was never one time that this guy was unfairly treated... uh, while he was on this network."

Notice the weasel words at the end: "while he was on this network." Turns out, O'Reilly and other FOX News hosts (and guests) have had plenty of negative things to say about Edwards. Just not while he was specifically on the program, in person.
