O'Reilly to Kurtz: Mainstream Media's Agenda 'Really Harming the Nation'
Bill O'Reilly joined Howard Kurtz on Media Buzz today to discuss everything from the media's coverage of President Obama to his interactions with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart to his hit new book, "Killing Patton," which is available now.
"The Factor" host said it is a good thing that the media is finally more aggressively covering Obama and his administration, and the American people are actually getting the news reported after six years, but he doesn't feel like the press' "heart is in it."
"The press is not in business anymore to give the folks information. That's not what they do," O'Reilly said. "They are in business to promote a certain agenda. That's really harming the nation."
He noted to Kurtz that he finds guests who have all positive or all negative things to say about the president "boring," and they won't be seen on "The Factor."
"Bring some facts, give me a perspective, give me something different," O'Reilly said.
One of those different perspectives that O'Reilly invites on his show is that of Jon Stewart, who "The Factor" host acknowledged is a very, very smart man, although his audience is largely comprised of "stoned slackers."

Also, be sure to pick up a copy of "Killing Patton," which takes readers inside the final year of World War II and recounts the events surrounding Gen. George S. Patton’s tragic, mysterious demise.
