Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln” Book Full Of Errors

Reported by Ellen - November 12, 2011 -

How full of errors is O'Reilly's new book? It’s so full of errors that, Justin Elliott at Salon.com reported, a reviewer for the National Park Service’s bookstore at Ford’s Theatre has recommended it not be sold at the historic site “because of the lack of documentation and the factual errors within the publication.” (H/T Eric Boehlert)

Elliott wrote,

Rae Emerson, deputy superintendent at Ford’s Theatre, which is a national historic site under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, has penned a scathing appraisal of O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever.” In Emerson’s official review, which I’ve pasted below, she spends four pages correcting passages from O’Reilly’s book before recommending that it not be offered for sale at Ford’s Theatre because it is not up to quality standards.
