Bill O’Reilly to CNN’s Howard Kurtz on Liberal Drone Hypocrisy: ‘Are You Kidding Me?’

Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo tackled the hypocrisy by American liberals on national security issues. Last week, a Justice Department memo revealed that the government can use drone attacks to kill American citizens overseas suspected of terrorism without a judge or jury.

In a previous ‘Factor,’ Bob Beckel and O’Reilly discussed the lack of analysis by NBC News on drones. Yesterday, CNN host Howard Kurtz criticized O’Reilly for

calling out NBC despite the fact that they had exposed the drone memo. “O’Reilly obviously misspoke,” Kurtz said.

“Are you kidding me, Howard?” O’Reilly said, “…The double standard of media coverage on waterboarding versus drones has been apparent for years. You don’t know that?”

O’Reilly asserted that most conservatives support President Obama’s drone attack program against foreign terrorists, as well as former President Bush’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques. He pointed out that the left loudly condemned waterboarding, but have been largely muted about the drone kills.
