An adaption of Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Jesus” brought in record numbers of viewership on National Geographic; however, it was met with some rather harsh reviews. O’Reilly of course had to review the reviewers on his own show. John Iadarola and Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks discuss. Is Christian tradition under attack? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
"Wannabe Forest Gump and Fox News host Bill O’Reilly had a fairly bad reaction to some negative reviews of the National Geographic documentary ‘Killing Jesus’ based on his novel of the same name. Taking his ball and going home O’Reilly waited until he was on his show The O’Reilly Factor to fire back at his critics, claiming that the negative press was due to anti-Christian and anti-religious sentiment within the general movie critic population. Bill O’Reilly went on to say that Christian tradition was under assault, stopping short of saying there was a war against it as he had to save that line for his annual War on Christmas segments. Most of the negative reviews revolved around the documentary just being a terrible movie with Christianity being only mentioned as the source material.
