    “If names be not correct, language is not in accordance with the truth of things” — Confucius

    “Fib” and “benign” are two of the more deceptive terms introduced into the lexicon of the assassination in the last few years.

    New students are being lead to believe that silly ol’ Bill O’Reilly is little other than a foolish Pinocchio who ‘fibbed’ about his whereabouts at the moment of George deMohrenschild’t death, and that silver-haired sophisticate John McCone’s role in the cover up by withholding evidence from the original investigation was ‘benign’, a meaningless and in fact nothing more than a soft and fluffy mistake that can now be corrected.

    Bill O’Reilly “lied”, and his lie resulted in misleading millions of his followers, our fellow Americans about the actual circumstances surrounding deMohrenscholdt’s death on the eve of his testimony before the House Select Committee on Assassinations that could well have blown the lid off of the WCR.

    John McCone contributed to a “malignant” cover-up by withholding information from the Warren Commission, a deliberate act that hid either a conspiracy or a colossal blunder that continues to resonate in America today.

    Well said Leslie. Bill O’liely’s lies through his many books continue to obfuscate the truth in US History. I’ve mentioned before I think McCone was a JFK mistake he realized before his death.
    One that helped with the cover up.

    Mr. O’Reilly is a blatherskite; a Celtic term for one who talks foolishly but speaks only nonsense.
    He is also a bully. I appeared on his show many years ago. I didn’t like the cut of his jib.
    Read George Will’s recent comments on his latest farce, “Killing Reagan.” As Will points out, nobody killed Reagan. O’Reilly neglected to interview any direct White House sources, and did not attempt to contact the Reagan Library in Santa Barbara until after his book was published. He relies on a memo which, he admits, he has never seen.
    A true hack.
