O'Reilly Is a Phony

A horrific event such as the mass shooting in Orlando early last Sunday tends to reveal where politicians and political commentators really stand on the issues of liberty and the Constitution. This has certainly been the case with Bill O’Reilly, host of highly ranked Fox cable show The Factor.
O’Reilly, as is his practice, made a pretense of being “fair and balanced” by offering some criticism of liberal politicians, before he launched his attack on what he called “right-wing responsibility” for the massacre, which left 49 people dead and even more wounded in the Orlando gay nightclub Pulse.
An analysis of his remarks reveals the intellectual bankruptcy of those who seriously argue that increased gun control will be either effective or constitutional.
