Oliver North, FNC’s War Stories host/embedded war supporter, appeared on Bill O’Reilly‘s program tonight to react to Christiane Amanpour‘s statements about the Iraq war.
What do you think he said? Write down your prediction, then click “more” to read his comments, after the jump…
“It strikes me, Bill, that the purpose of going out there…is to cover the war, document what’s going on, perhaps, if you will, prepare the first draft of history…
When one makes the kind of observation she did last night, it crosses the boundaries from being a journalist to a commentator.
That the war has been a disaster is her opinion, and quite frankly the facts on the ground don’t support it.”
North also said Amanpour has demonstrated her bias consistently since the war began, and remarked:
“This is not a network that has an Ernie Pyle working for it.”
> A professor and war vet Napolean Byars appeared with North to defend Amanpour. He called her “one of the best foreign correspondents in the world.” Update: 9:53am: “Napolean Byars also said that Amanpour “crossed the line” and that her remarks were “inappropriate” for a correspondent.”
