Cenk Uygur host of The Young Turks discusses the tell-all statement that reveals that Bill O'Reilly was mostly spinning tales about his involvement in covering the Falklands War in 1982.
Facts and eye witness accounts have revealed in recent years that Bill O'Reilly is less a conservative newsman version of Forest Gump, covering important stories from the front lines of history and instead is kind of more of a lying douchebag. Former CBS cameraman Ignacio Medrano-Carbo released a statement to news website Mother Jones that contradicts the account told by O'Reilly of his actions in covering the Falklands War in the 1980s. O'Reilly liked to talk up his war coverage, stating he had seen riots and seen people gunned down in the street. According to Medrano-Carbo, O'Reilly was nowhere near the action and that he actually was responsable for all of the footage that was taken during the riot and unrest.
Bill O'Reilly has released a counter statement claiming he has never worked with Medrano-Carbo.
