O'Reilly Lies about Malmedy. Olbermann BLASTS him.

Bill O'Reilly lies about the WWII Malmedy massacre -- TWICE -- saying it was US servicemen who slaughtered unarmed Germans when in fact it was the other way around. He does so -- TWICE -- while debating General Wesley Clark, as if O'Reilly knew more about war than Clark.

Finally, and most obnoxiously, O'Reilly reads an email on his show, correcting him on the facts, and he does not issue a retraction or correction, nor does he even apologize for the slander he visits on those US servicemen who were slaughtered by the Nazis over sixty years ago.

The most egregious part of this is that O'Reilly uses this alleged slaughter of Germans by Americans to somehow say that Abu Ghraib is not that bad, or that Haditha is not an aberration.

The man is a vile piece of slime. In this video, Countdown's Keith Olberman rightly excoriates and eviscerates him. Video courtesy of YouTube.


You go, Keith.
