Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh said in a recent speech that Dick Cheney was in charge of an "Executive Assassination Crew" operating out of the White House. Bill O'Reilly immediately countered with the statement that, if this were true, then liberal reporters like Seymour Hersh would already have been assassinated.
However, assassination squads run out of the White House usually operate in foreign countries, generally by the CIA. They are not known for assassinating American journalists working in the USA, whether they be Seymour Hersh or Bill O’Reilly. Between Hersh and O’Reilly, however — Hersh is a million times more reliable and truthful. If Hersh says that Cheney operated an “executive assassination crew” out of the White House, then attention must be paid. More often than not, Hersh turns out to be right. Contrary to Bill O'Reilly's assertion, “Executive Assassination” doesn’t normally include American journalists or reporters. But, who knows? The new Obama Administration may change that policy, Bill. They're from Chicago, you know.
I kind of see your point, but I wouldn't put O'weirdly and Hersch in the same place at all. Hersch is like the war correspondents and great reporters that I heard about from the forties and fifties, like perhaps Edward R Murrow. O'Reilly is more like your worst aunt writing her family sketches on a Christmas Card, full of trivial BS.
