Last night on Fox News, star host Bill O’Reilly covered the coverage of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, with an emphasis on CNN’s tendency to go wall-to-wall on the topic. “The story has gotten good ratings, particularly for CNN. They’ve, in their primetime line-up, upped it considerably,” said O’Reilly in a conversation with regular contributor Bernard Goldberg.
Here’s how O’Reilly summed it up: “Watching all this wild speculation has me on edge. It’s headache-inducing and driven by ratings, not journalism.” That from the perennial conjurer of the “War on Christmas.”
