'Fox News Is Not News' - S.F. Official Says What We All Want to Say to O'Reilly Flunky (VIDEO)
Bill O'Reilly can't stop talking about Kate Steinle, the 31-year-old woman murdered in San Fransico, allegedly by an undocumented worker. He can't stop talking about her not because he actually cares about her or her family, or because he's genuinely concerned with solving the terribly complex problem of illegal immigration. He can't stop talking about her because, as others have pointed out, her alleged killer, Francisco Sanchez, is quickly turning into 2016's Willie Horton. A racially-coded scare case Republicans can exploit to frighten white voters into turning out for them.
The right's cynicism on this has gotten so bad, even Kate Steinle's brother—who is otherwise sympathetic—accused Donald Trump of "exploiting" his sister's death.
So it should come as no surprise then that the San Fransisco officials being blamed for her death would have no interest in indulging or taking seriously this nakedly partisan spectacle. One in particular, Scott Weiner, said what anyone should say when confronted with a Fox News "reporter" trawling for gotcha soundbites: remind them they aren't reporters and the organization they work for isn't "news".
A brilliant but simple tactic. Watch below, O'Reilly's disgusting spectacle and the truthteller's brilliant moment:
