A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

This is why O'Reilly drives me mad: The loudmouth doesn't do his homework: "[Justice Ruth Bader] Ginsburg was unanimously confirmed, I mean it was 98 to nothing."

No, it wasn't. It was 96-3.

1:34 AM

Comments:
That seems like a rather nitpicky item to get too worked up about. 96-3 may not be unanimous, but it's pretty damned close. By way of comparison, David Souter, now a darling of the left, was confirmed by a 90-9 margin.

When he threw out the 98-0 figure, O'Reilly was likely mixing Ginsburg up with the other now-controversial, then-handily-confirmed Justice, Antonin Scalia, who was indeed confirmed 98-0.
 
This was just an easy one. I can't count the number of times where I've sat there watching his show and thought to myself that he hadn't done his homework.

A particularly infuriating one was when he was interviewing a friend of mine, Jamie Zeppetella, widow of murdered cop Tony Zeppetella and he asked her how she was explaining this to her kids.

She's only got one son, and at the time he was less than a year old.

He isn't doing his homework.
