O’Reilly Says CNN & MSNBC’s Iraq “Is More Political Than Informational”

By Brian 

Last night on the Factor, Bill O’Reilly responded to Jon Klein‘s comments about the PEJ study showing Fox News covered the Iraq war less than CNN or MSNBC:

“In my opinion, CNN, and especially MSNBC, delight in showing Iraqi violence because they want Americans to think badly of President Bush. And that strategy has succeeded,” O’Reilly said. “So their Iraqi coverage is more political than informational, again in my opinion. Could be wrong about CNN. I’m not wrong about the committed left wing crew over at NBC.”

Later, O’Reilly added: “There’s little news value in broadcasting daily bombings. By the way, FOX News continues to crush CNN and MSNBC in the ratings, as the folks know news when they see it.”
