O'Reilly: 'The NY Times and Other National Media Are Strongly Anti-Trump'
The firestorm surrounding The New York Times’ disputed article on Donald Trump raises fundamental questions about the “agenda” in much of national media, Bill O’Reilly said in tonight’s Talking Points commentary.
The story in question, titled “Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved with Women in Private,” has been a source of conflict since one of the women interviewed came forward saying that the reporters did not accurately portray her interactions with the GOP front-runner.
Now, reports indicate that one of the Times’ reporters, Michael Barbaro, has previously written a number of anti-Trump tweets, which “in an honest media operation” would have “disqualified” him from reporting about the candidate, said O’Reilly.
At the root of the problem is that “very few non-liberal people” work in national media, the Factor host explained.
“The New York Times and other national media are strongly anti-Trump, and they cannot discipline themselves to cover his campaign fairly,” he said.
“It all comes back to being fair and giving you, the American voter, an unbiased look at the presidential candidates.”
