Bill O’Reilly came off infinitely more credible as he cited source after source and picked Fox contributor George Will apart. All Will seemed to have was snarky comments. Most telling was Will saying that O’Reilly was doing the work of liberals by the quote “destroying Reagan’s reputation.” The point of a book on Reagan should be to tell the truth, not protect Reagan’s reputation.
O’Reilly, who I’m not a fan of did a great job in shutting down Will!
“It is not a laudatory book,” Will said about O’Reilly’s Killing Reagan. “It is doing the work of the left which knows in order to discredit conservatism it must destroy Reagan’s reputation as president. Your book does the work of the American left with its extreme recklessness.”
“You’re a hack,” O’Reilly said to Will. “You are in with the cabal of the Reagan loyalists who don’t want the truth to be told.”
