When Bill O'Reilly had balls

Just now catching up with David Talbot's excellent 2012 piece in Salon on Bill O'Reilly's book on the JFK assassination.

Once upon a time, Bill O’Reilly had balls when it came to investigating the Kennedy assassination. Back in 1991---as a reporter for the tabloid TV news show, “Inside Edition”---O’Reilly had the guts to track the epic crime all the way into the dark labyrinth of the CIA. Following up on the important work done by investigators for the House Select Committee on Assassinations in the late ‘70s, O’Reilly boldly told his “Inside Edition” audience that there were “crucial” links between alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA. O’Reilly also reported that the CIA had infiltrated the office of New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, who brought the only criminal case in the JFK assassination to trial, in an effort to sabotage Garrison’s investigation...

A Salon follow-up piece earlier this week.
