After Brian Williams was suspended six months without pay for admitting he lied about his 2003 experience in Iraq, a former Fox News contributor named David Corn decided to dig into Bill O’Reilly’s account of his experience covering the Falklands War in 1982, what he found was a few things that didn’t add up. 

According the Mother Jones website, O’Reilly has recounted dramatic stories about his own war reporting that don’t withstand scrutiny, even claiming he acted heroically in a war zone that he apparently never set foot in.The Fox News host has repeatedly told his story about his time with CBS News when he covered combat on the ground between Argentina and England in the disputed islands. He even had to rescue his photographer who was injured while army forces were bearing down on them in Argentina. But the article in Mother Jones says no American TV reporters covered the war from the ground in the Falkland Islands during the conflict.

Some media and people who write or tell stories embellish and can be known to stretch the truth, act in a way. Lying about war experiences becomes a whole different thing though and if this is and more stuff surface Bill could be facing the same fate as Williams.
