O'Reilly Spins a Correction on 'White House Visits'

oreilly

On last night's O'Reilly Factor (6/5/13), the Fox News host asserted that there's still a lot the White House isn't telling us about the IRS/Tea Party scandal. But in the process he also, in his own special way, issued a correction–of sorts: The president will also not explain the IRS situation.

Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, claiming victory in the "War on Christmas," declares that the new battle is the "War on Easter."
