Bill O’Reilly has more questions to answer about his news reporting. It seems a liberal watchdog group called Media Matters For America is questioning his story about a friend of Lee Harvey Oswald’s back in 1977. Oswald’s friend, George de Mohrenschildt, had been contacted by Congressional investigators, and O’Reilly found out about it. Bill was a news reporter for a Dallas TV station at that time. George de Mohrenschildt lived in Palm Beach, Florida.
In his book, “Killing Kennedy,” and on his Fox News show O’Reilly claimed he traveled to Palm Beach to interview Oswald’s Russian friend. When de Mohrenschildt’s daughter opened the door for him, O’Reilly heard a gunshot. George de Mohrenschildt committed suicide while he stood at the door. But in 2013, former editor of the Washington Post, Jefferson Morley, said O’Reilly’s story is not accurate. On his blog, Morley claims O’Reilly never went to Palm Beach for the interview.
But Susan McGalla has read there’s more to the story. An Associated Press report written at the time said a Palm Beach County Sheriff went to de Mohrenschildt’s home the day of his suicide. The sheriff said the only people in the home at the time of his death were two maids, and they claimed they didn’t hear the shot.
