David Letterman Slams O'Reilly For Not Telling The Truth

  • 1-24-08 -- Letterman had John Edwards on and he asked him about Bill O'Reilly, this is what they said.
    LETTERMAN: Tell me a little bit about your feud with Bill O'Reilly. Now there's a tough guy. He's been on the show a couple of times. And he's a tough guy. What's going on there? What's at the core of the feud?

    EDWARDS: Well, the core of the feud is I've been talking about homeless veterans and the fact that we have a couple hundred thousand homeless veterans who have no place to sleep at night. They're either in shelters...

    LETTERMAN: It's embarrassing, isn't it?

    EDWARDS: It's incredibly embarrassing for America. Huge moral issue facing the country. And he kind of went on his show and said that I was exaggerating, making it up. And I think he got a lot of correspondence, a lot of homeless veterans have been calling in.

    LETTERMAN: Well, you know what I've noticed about Bill O'Reilly ? and he's a marvelous communicator. But he's not -- he doesn't really care much about telling the truth.
    Notice that John Edwards did not say the veterans are homeless because of the economy. And he has never said that, he is only saying it is embarrassing to have 200,000 homeless vets in America. He does not link it to the ecomomy, and he never has, Edwards says it is a moral issue, not an economic issue. And Letterman is exactly right, O'Reilly does not really care about the truth. All he cares about is putting out right-wing propaganda and spin to make liberals look bad.
