||O'Reilly Ignored Tom Delay Conviction Story

UPDATE: 12-2-10 -- As of December 2nd, 2010 Bill O'Reilly has still not said a word about the Tom Delay conviction story. It's a week old story, and O'Reilly has totally ignored it.
As I predicted the great (so-called) journalist totally ignored the Tom Delay money laundering conviction story that broke last Friday. Billy never said a word about it in the entire show, not one word, nothing.
This was a big story on the Factor a couple years ago, before the guilty verdict happened. O'Reilly reported on it numerous times, he defended Delay, and said he did nothing wrong. Not only that, O'Reilly attacked the prosecutor in the case on numerous shows, saying it was a political hit job, and Billy also said Delay would be found not guilty of all the charges.
So when the verdict comes in, what does O'Reilly do. Ignore it of course, because O'Reilly was wrong, and because Delay is a Republican. If Delay was a Democrat, O'Reilly would do 2 or 3 nights of shows on it.
Not only did O'Reilly ignore the entire story, there was no apology to the prosecutor, or any guests who told him Delay would be found guilty. O'Reilly had numerous shows on it, where he stacked the deck with right-wing pundits who all slammed the prosecutor, and said it was political.
The 1 or 2 Democrats who were on to discuss it said Delay broke the law, and he will be found guilty. Then O'Reilly slammed them too, and said they are wrong, and that they are just liberal spin doctors. When it turns out they were exactly right, and O'Reilly was wrong.
But you would never know any of that if you only watch the Factor, because O'Reilly has not, and will not report it.
