Kurtz excuses O’Reilly’s incitement of violence against Tiller
Panelists on CNN’s Reliable Sources agreed that Bill O’Reilly doesn’t share the blame in the murder of Dr. George Tiller. “I think it’s unfair to demonize O’Reilly in this matter, but at the same time, I wish he had denounced the murder of Tiller more forcefully,” said host Howard Kurtz.
O’Reilly brought up Tiller in at least 28 episodes of his show on the Fox News Channel. O’Reilly repeatedly referred to the doctor as “Tiller the Baby Killer.”
“I think it was wrong to call Bill O’Reilly a murderer. I think it’s wrong for O’Reilly to call George Tiller a murderer as well,” said Bill Press.
