The mainstream media is now aligned with the Democratic Party, which is troubling for the state of the free press in the U.S., Bill O'Reilly said in his Talking Points Memo tonight.

He explained that the press doesn't necessarily coordinate with Democrats, but their political beliefs closely align.

"It is not a stretch for any fair-minded person to believe that the national media leans heavily left and despises President Trump, not willing to give him a chance or any benefit of the doubt," O'Reilly said.

He said that the press must be free, and that is jeopardized when it aligns itself with a political movement.

O'Reilly said that's not unique to America, since the European press is generally far-left.

It is a big issue in the U.S., however, because Trump has brought it to the forefront.

"Summing up: If the American press wants to regain respect, it needs to ditch its outwardly liberal bent," O'Reilly said. "I know all these people, I know all the anchors, most of the producers. I know who they are and how they think. In the national press, it is at least ten to one liberal over conservative."
