The Daily Ignominious: Bill O'Reilly Revisits Tax Increase Lie

Fox News makes no pretense if garners great success (viewership revenue) by  appealing to   "all things" non-progressive with an obvious conservative slant to all broadcast segments. The networks chief Right-Wing propagandist (AKA host): Bill O'Reilly, deploys particularly insulting degrees of lies in broadcast segments with absolute comfort and without regard for refuting data. He and his production team know that they simply have to broadcast "it", and "it" becomes gospel to his large viewer base. 

The 2014 Obama has increased taxes on the rich by 442% was bunked and for quite sometime buried in a mass grave among a of plethora common Right-wing lies.

Politifact....."Obama has proposed 442 tax hikes since taking office," said Americans for Tax Reform in an April 14 press release."

The 60-second ad was announced May 16. Crossroads GPS said it would run in 10 states (Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia) at an initial cost of $8 million. It is the first salvo in what the group says will be a month-long, $25 million ad initiative intended to “frame the national debate on jobs, the economy, ObamaCare and government debt.”
If we Jump this a recent O'Reilly broadcast, we find this...... (Note: O'Reilly and his team with doubt know this segment is based on outright lies.) First the screenshot from Media Matters;  then we offer a Media Matters a video segment that is a must watch.

Media Matters 
Yes. The screenshot is real.
"since taking office, President Obama has proposed a whopping 442 tax increases" and asking, "how much more can the government take from the affluent without crashing the entire free market economy?":
Didn't O'Reilly recently decry the state of journalism has deteriorated to nothingness?

One more minute......

O'Reilly's audience soaks this stuff up like a sponge during a rarely rain shower in Death Valley, Nevada.
