O'Reilly Unhinged When Accused Of Distorting Facts

Reported by Deborah - June 2, 2006

Bill O'Reilly started another campaign earlier in the week, 5/31, against a Nebraska Judge who he claimed sentenced a sex offender, who molested a 13 year old girl 2 times, to probation because she claimed he was too short to survive in prison.Tonight, former prosecuter, Bernie Glaser, accused O'Reilly of reporting the wrong facts and Bill's composure vanished into a fit of shouting. 6/2/06

On Wednesday, O'Reilly was joined by Nebraska Attorney General, Jon Bruning, who also advanced the story that the Judge Kristine Cevaca chose probation because of the man's height. Bruning said,

"This ruling is ridiculous at best. It doesn't matter if you're short or tall, we don't have an athletic requirement to go to prison. But the good news is that my office can file an appeal, and we think we're going to have success."

Also on Wednesday it was reported that the man molested the child twice and O'Reilly was sure to describe the molestation graphically for his viewers.

Tonight Bernie Glaser told O'Reilly that the case was misrepresented claiming that the Judge had expressed concern over the convicted man's " stature" since he is mentally retarded and not his height. O'Reilly reading from the man's confession claimed tonight that the girl was molested 5 times instead of 2. When Glaser corrected him on this, O'Reilly went a little nuts.

Glaser would not back down as O'Reilly shouted that 5 times was correct claiming that he had it in writing. Glaser reminded him that the man had only been convicted for two incidents. BOR read the statement and the description of the act insisting that it was 5 times. At one point he shouted at Glaser,

" I'm not going to let you do this on national TV!"

Glaser got O'Reilly even angrier when he claimed that the prosecutor in the case did not recommend jail time for the accused at the time of trial which also influenced the decision. Glaser was really tough and refused to back down despite O'Reilly's continued bullying until the segment ended.
