O'Reilly Admits He Was Wrong About Jane Fonda

Reported by Marie Therese - May 19, 2005

Yesterday (5/18/05) Bill O'Reilly actually admitted he made a mistake about Jane Fonda! He announced it towards the end of the show.

O'REILLY: Time now for "Most Ridiculous Item of the Day"...

Setting the record straight on Jane Fonda. Now, last night I told Dick Gillespie of Reason magazine that I was not willing to give Ms. Fonda a pass on the accusation she turned over notes from American POW's to the North Vietnamese during her trip to Hanoi.

A web site called Snopes.com has investigated and debunked that accusation. They say it's not true.

Well, we decided to research it. We spent the day doing it. And the indication is that Snopes is correct! The story is bogus. So at this point, lacking any definable evidence to the contrary, Jane Fonda did not turn over any POW notes to the Vietnamese.

We're happy to clarify the record. It would be ridiculous not to do so. All right. Way to go, Snopes.com.


Snopes.com is a wonderful site and a great way to check out anything you might think is an urban legend. I use it all the time!
