O'Reilly Wonders If Associated Press Was Unfair To Limbaugh

Reported by Deborah - May 2, 2006

When the news of Rush Limbaugh's arrest broke on Friday, O'Reilly and Napolitano claimed he was victimized by a hostile, liberal prosecuter in Palm Beach. Tonight the Associated Press became a Limbaugh persecutor for writing that he was arrested instead of reporting he was " under arrest". O'Reilly even went to the trouble of bringing on Jeff McCall, DePauw University, and of course Judge Napolitano to discuss this nit-picky premise. 5/2/06

O'Reilly first asked Napolitano for his legal take on Rush Limbaugh's assertion that the original AP story got the facts wrong giving the public the wrong perception about the incident. Napolitano said the story was misleading and they should have said under arrest. He noted that when he first got the AP e-mail about Limbaugh, he wondered if the police had gone to the radio station to get him adding that "in custody" would have been a better choice of words.

O'Reilly acknowledged that the AP declined to comment which was too bad since it might have been a mistake. O'Reilly admitted that he sympathized with Rush adding, "They don't like him or me" Then he referred to an " elite media" always looking to smack you.

When it was McCal'ls turn, there wasn't much left to say. He stated that there could have been a better choice of words and a more thourough look at what happened.

O'Reilly, careful to tread lightly on the AP, suggested that they just wanted to get the story out and probaby got their facts from a Cop without looking too deeply adding this comment.
" Don't know if they're malicious. I know they don't like me. They don't like Rush."

comment: O'Reilly is really competing with Limbaugh. He doesn't even want the Associated Press to dislike Limbaugh more . Yes Bill, we're sure the AP is after you too. Feel better?
