O'Reilly Caught Lying About NEJM Health Care Survey

What I'm about to tell you is simply stunning. Not really, it's just more lies from O'Reilly about the so-called New England Journal of Medicine Doctor Survey. Here is what the lying O'Reilly said last night, I quote:
O'REILLY: What I'm about to tell you is simply stunning.Too bad it's all lies, Here is what Media Matters wrote about the so-called survey.
Members of the Right-wing media have seized on a dubious, three-month old email "survey" that purports to show that physicians are concerned about health care reform and that 46 percent of the primary care doctors surveyed "indicated that they would leave medicine - or try to leave medicine - as a result of health reform."Now think about this, O'Reilly claims to have a crack staff of 10 people that research everything and never make a mistake. Yet they make a massive mistake like this, which is about as big of a mistake a so-called journalist can make. The question is, will O'Reilly do a correction tonight. The fact that he would even make that dishonest claim shows what a partisan right-wing hack he is, because only right-wing spin doctors are saying it was a NEJM survey.
And btw, the actual survey was also bogus, because it was an unscientific e-mail survey. It was not a real scientific survey, a real survey is random and done by phone. Internet and e-mail surveys are bogus because they are not scientific. The whole thing is dishonest garbage, by O'Reilly and all his right-wing friends.
It shows that O'Reilly and his right-wing friends will do anything to make people oppose the Obama health care plan, including lie about a NEJM survey that never happened. And if O'Reilly does not do a correction tonight, his credibility is zero.
