Fox News Management Where Art Thou? The O'Reilly Train Wreck Continues

Bill O'Reilly's Book "Killing Lincoln" was prohibited from sales at the Washington DC Ford Theater museum. His book was sold on another floor of the building that houses the theater, but due to errors (misstatements) the theater director did not allow sales at the museum book store. While O'Reilly's error infested book drew attention many book reviews, the errors were so egregious other information sources ran with the story. 

The Christian Science Monitor (not your typical liberal entity) published a piece in November 2011: (Book cover image margins altered to fit page background.)

Ford's Theatre, citing errors, refuses to carry Bill O'Reilly's 'Killing Lincoln'

Ford's Theatre refuses to sell Bill O’Reilly’s book, 'Killing Lincoln,' the book one historian charges with 'mistakes in names, places, and events.'

Critics charge that errors in "Killing
Lincoln" include mentions of the not-yet-
built Oval Office and a misstatement
of the year the Ford's Theatre burned down.
If you’re looking for Bill O’Reilly’s book, "Killing Lincoln," in Ford's Theatre, where Lincoln was actually assassinated, you’re not going to find it there. 
That’s because the bookstore of the Washington, D.C. theater where the heinous act took place has declined to sell Mr. O’Reilly’s book about the assassination of our 16th president because, some historians say, it’s riddled with inaccuracies. 
“Killing Lincoln” contains numerous factual errors and no documentation or footnotes, according to a study conducted by Rae Emerson, the deputy superintendent of Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site who recommended the book not be sold at Ford’s Theatre.

Bill O'Reilly is the chief demagogue for Fox News. Fox News is the television reincarnate of Breitbart News and first media (television) cousin to The Drudge Report. Are the current multiple revelations of Bill O'Reilly's questionable veracity actually a surprise? If you are inclined to answer in the affirmative take a moment for classic O'Reilly dogma (with assistance for Megyn "white Santa; white Jesus Kelly).  

University California-Davis Pepper Spray: linked here. How much of a claim to fair and honest reporting is plausible while lying about the effect of Pepper Spray.

O'Reilly's attack on Brian Williams after revelation of his "machismo laden" false claims, led to mirrored personal exposure that Count Dracula would avoid equal inertia expended in avoiding sunlight. It appears O'Reilly has reported from every major news zone since well before the Falklands War. Factually, O'Reilly hasn't covered of a long list of escapades he claims in his books and on camera.

O'Reilly and the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

CNN report debunking Bill O'Reilly's JFK Story

As Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter reported, "clearly this tape shows he was not there."
Stelter also interviewed Morley, who said that he previously attempted to bring this audio to Fox News' attention, but received no response.

From JFKs assassination, through the LA Riots, with a detour in the Falklands War, to post Katrina and a few fantasy books which should called novels. O'Reilly embodies the essence of his network employer: Fox News. The real shame is so many Americans tune-in to the demagogue each night and I suspect even more purchase his "novels."
