O’Reilly’s Own Video Shows No ‘War Zone’

Mother Jones found the television news report Bill O'Reilly filed from Argentina and it doesn't mention any massacre of civilians that he later claimed to have witnessed. While O'Reilly claimed to have covered the Falklands war from the islands, he admitted after an earlier Mother Jones report that he was never actually in the war zone. O'Reilly has claimed that soldiers were "gunning down" protesters with "real bullets" and that an M-16 was pointed at him—and that he saved a cameraman's life. None of that drama or his self-proclaimed heroics were mentioned in the 1982 report.
