Bill-O Gets It Wrong on Fox Reporting of Health Care Jailing

Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn shook up the world of political news recently when he admitted what most of us know all to well: Fox News is not to be trusted.

Coburn's statement came at an Oklahoma town hall when Coburn pointed out that Fox News was saying that people who don't buy health insurance under the new health bill will be jailed. 

In other words, what appears on Fox is closer to sensationalism than truth. 

Bill O'Reilly, Fox News blowhard, responded, telling Coburn that Fox News had never reported any such thing. Except that it has. The guilty: Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck, among others.

PolitiFact has the quotes, all "Pants on Fire" lies.  Bill-O was wrong. The PolitiFact link is here.

Average age of the O'Reilly viewer is 71. Maybe he figures they won't fact-check him.
