Bill O'Reilly's Book Killing Lincoln Banned For "Inaccuracies"

Whomp whomp!

Bill O'Reilly's book, Killing Lincoln, may be on several bestseller lists, but it's been banned from the most important place of all - the very place where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated!

The Ford Theatre bookstore in Washington, D.C. has banned the selling of the book due to several "mistakes" and "inaccuracies."

Historian Edward Steers Jr. explains:

"If the authors made mistakes in names, places, and events, what else did they get wrong? How can the reader rely on anything that appears in Killing Lincoln?"

For instance:

"Mary Surratt was never shackled or hooded at any time. She was never imprisoned aboard the Montauk. None of this is true."

Other inaccuracies include the number of performances the play that Lincoln was attending, how big Samual Mudd's farm was, and the use of the "Oval Office," which didn't exist until 44 years after Lincoln's 1865 murder.

Oh well, none of this will matter to O'Reilly since he's already been offered to write another presidential history.

Whatever make$ money, right? Who cares about accuracy!

    what else can you expect from a total dumbass like bill o'reilly



  2. 2

    The reason he (and others like him) are ever on the best selling list is because the right wing organizations BUY huge amounts of these books to GIVE away because no one would buy them!

    I looked up 'douche bag' in the dictionary and there was a picture of Bill O'Reilly.

  4. mw says – reply to this

    blow hard

    I think this is about the sixth best seller(#1 NY TIMES) O'reilly has had
    I dont think it's the book they have a problem with , but with the author

    If the Ford bookshop took out all the books in there that are not 100% accurate, they would be left with a very small selection
    And one of them would not be the Obama biography

    Re: MR Pete – OK, you want to talk. Tell us what books they should not agree to sell that they do indeed sell. Oh, you don't have a clue? You're just working your little keyboard? Try again, tea bagger.

    Wrong again Perez. Check your facts, the Ford Theater is selling the book and has never stopped from selling it. Again - inaccurate info - why you gotta be such a hater, perez???

    B. O. clarified the deets on his show 2nite. So 4 those who are interested, you can check that out. The F. T. is in fact, selling the book. Also, what few print errors were made, have been corrected.
    . . . . .
    It matters not who does OR does not like O'Reilly, but 'shred' only when shredding is due…



  9. 9

    Not an O'Reilly fan, but…
    "Whatever make$ money, right? Who cares about accuracy!"

    Now why is that ironic coming from Perez?



  10. 10

    Perez… you obviously have NO idea what it means "to check your sources". The person in charge of this bookstore said that they have this book still on their book shelves, and there were a few MINOR errors… which most books have many more.. And to all you O'Reilly haters.. I know.. You NEVER watch Bill on a regular basis.. otherwise you would know that he sticks up for Obama regularly, and is a champion in preventing child abuse, and raising funds for wounded warriors..

    Is anybody reallt that surprised??
    Have you heard the shit that comes out of his mouth?
    Why would he be anymore accurate in a book??
