Bill O’Reilly says CNN is like ‘totalitarian’ regime after network slams Trump over tear-gassing of migrant family

Published

Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly accused CNN of being like a “totalitarian” regime because the network aired a photo of a migrant family fleeing from tear gas.

In a tweet on Monday, O’Reilly reacted to a widely-circulated Reuters photo taken on Sunday at the San Ysidro port of entry in California, which was temporarily closed due to a migrant caravan. In the photo, a family is seen running from tear gas.

According to O’Reilly, President Donald Trump’s administration was not the villain of the story.

“On CNN, in discussing the border situation, puts pictures on the screen of little children, their mothers, strollers, etc,” O’Reilly complained. “This is the type of media propaganda you see in totalitarian countries. If CNN wants open borders, just say that. Stop distorting a very serious situation.”

The cap limits annual wages subject to the Social Security payroll tax to the first $137,700. Sarah Rawlins, program associate at the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), wrote Tuesday that the cap means "someone who makes $1,000,000 per year stops paying into the program on February 19, 2020."

"That makes a millionaire's effective tax rate well below the 6.2% of income that most Americans pay," Rawlins noted. "Instead, it is less than 1% of a millionaire's income. The Social Security tax is only levied on wages, excluding income from other sources like capital gains, meaning those with wages over the cap likely have an effective tax rate even lower than this estimate."
