I remember Bill O’Reilly admitting he lied on-air

A week ago (February 23rd), I sent this message to a friend who has a lot more connections than I do. Maybe you have the evidence.

Tonight, I somehow remembered a newspaper column written by Bill O’Reilly in which he admitted lying on the air! I thought I saved it and looked all over, but couldn’t find hard copy or it online..

Here’s the story: WCBS anchorman Jim Jensen died in October, 1999. A few days later, O’Reilly wrote a column in either the Post or Daily News about how tough Jensen was and what it was like to work for him. One example: reporters had better know where Canarsie is.

O’Reilly wrote that he was doing a story about a theater evacuation on the 6pm news and Jensen asked one of his tough (unplanned) questions: How many seats are in the theater?! O’Reilly admitted he had no clue and had never asked. He admitted quickly making up a story that those numbers are kept secret for competitive reasons!

I hope you have better luck finding it than I did!

My friend hasn’t responded and the O’Reilly story is heating up again, so please contact me if you have the goods!
