Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly slammed the mainstream media on Wednesday.Apparently, they ignored a case of two immigrant teens.
One of them has been accused of raping a Maryland high school student.
“ABC, NBC, CBS did not cover it on their nightly news broadcasts,” O’Reilly said in his “Talking Points Memo.” “CNN did not cover the Maryland story in primetime last night. Ditto MSNBC. That is beyond anything I have ever seen in my 40 years-plus of journalism.”
“We all know why,” O’Reilly said. “Illegal immigration is a political issue.”
According to our source, Liberty Writers, he went on to accuse the media of “allowing the sanctuary city movement to pretty much run wild” by opposing President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies.
He warned that many Americans have had enough of illegal immigration saying that “the federal government has lost control over the immigration process, and … many states and cities will not obey federal law, creating anarchy.”“[There] comes a time when citizens of any country have to demand justice, have to demand protection, demand the law be respected,” O’Reilly said. “We have not, have not, come to that time yet in America.”
The case quickly became a topic of national discussion when it was discovered that one of the two suspects, Henry Sanchez, 18, and Jose Montano, 17, is an illegal immigrant. Henry Sanchez, who is initially from Guatemala, was stopped at the U.S. border in Texas and then released into the care of his father.
“We have concluded that the facts in this case do not support the original charges filed in this matter,” Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy said at a news conference.
“Due to the lack of corroboration and substantial inconsistencies from the facts that we have obtained from multiple sources since the filing of the original charging document, the original charges cannot be sustained, and prosecution on those charges is untenable.”
