Tiller, O’Reilly and Terrorism

Bill O’Reilly lashed back at “pro-abortion zealots” and “Fox News haters” for trying to blame him and other right-wing commentators for the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller. He said that the far left was “exploiting the death” of Tiller to “stifle any criticism” of abortion.

On “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” Andrew Sullivan says, “The conservative commentariat, they do bear responsibility for some of this. Not responsibility for the killing, but responsibility for the climate.”

Olbermann himself cites today’s Huffington Post piece in which Frank Schaeffer, a former anti-abortion crusader writes that he and his father, also a pro-life leader, “share the blame (with many others) for the murder” of Tiller.

Olbermann ended his show with a commentary calling not for a boycott of Fox News but a “quarantine” — a request that anyone who goes in a public place where the channel is on TV demand that the restaurant, bar or wherever turn it off.
