Bill O’Reilly thinks the media can’t be “free” if it has a such an obvious liberal bent. John Iadarola and Ben Mankiewicz, the hosts of The Young Turks, break down his comments. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go
“Tonight Bill O’Reilly questioned whether the American press is truly “free” in response to the outcry over President Trump‘s “enemy” tweet.
There’s been a lot of talk about the value of a free and fair press, but O’Reilly argued that “when the press aligns itself with a political movement…then it is no longer objective or free because it’s sympathizing with a political point of view.”
He cited things that various newscasters have said about Trump, including CNN’s Jake Tapper recently telling Trump to “stop whining” after his marathon presser, concluding that “if the American press wants to regain respect, it needs to ditch its outwardly liberal bent.”
O’Reilly said that based on what he’s observed in the news business, it’s “at least 10 to 1 liberal over conservative.”
