Bill O’Reilly blasted the liberal media on Wednesday night, saying the “hatred” of President-elect Donald Trump is so “unbelievable” that “almost every fair-minded American” wouldn’t listen to them anymore.
“The O’Reilly Factor” host played a montage of media members expressing fear for the Trump administration that included CNN’s Brian Stelter asking if it was a “national emergency.”
“Call in the National Guard to surround the inauguration,” O’Reilly sarcastically said when the montage ended. “That’s unbelievable.”
O’Reilly said that the media is “so overwrought” that most Americans “turn them off, or walk away or cancel their newspaper subscription.”
Fox Business host Trish Regan, who was a guest on the show, said she remembers when journalists at least pretended to be unbiased.
“Now, there is a school of thought in the media that is completely bias and so much so that god forbid you actually say something in defense of Donald Trump, they will pile on in a really extreme way,” Regan said.
O’Reilly responded by saying the Internet has ruined the rules of journalism because, on the Internet, there “are no rules.”
