Well, the same fella who's looking out for us, especially the children, has decided that lying under oath is not a crime.
On his Radio Factor today, Bill opened up by saying that Monica Goodling, an aide to Attorney General, was "smart" to refuse to testify in Senate hearings investigating the firing of eight federal prosecutors.
Bill backed up his belief, by saying, "Scooter Libby didn't commit any crime" and that "nobody can remember everything."
Nice. I wonder if those child abusers - those who might fall under "Jessica's Law"- might take Bill's adroit legal advice and refuse to testify when they show up in court.
"I cannot answer the question on the suggestion of my counselor, Bill O'Reilly."
Of course, the Fifth Amendment is there to be used so that you do not incriminate yourself, but not to protect you from lying.
Let's keep in mind that Libby, the guy who "didn't commit a crime," didn't forget. He lied, and he lied over and over in spite of testimony under oath by EVERYONE ELSE who were actually able to remember not to lie.
This is not a case of shutting up his sidekick (Lis Wiehl) for telling the truth. That's his choice. His continual, seeming disdain for the rights of others - one (many) day(s) he threatens innocent callers ("We have your number") with visits by Fox Security and the next he tells everyone it's not a good idea to testify in court - may actually have one of the "Folks™" , one day, taking his advice.
Looking out for you or looking out for the criminal?
Perhaps we should have a Factor Poll to decide which one it is.
