Breaking news: Bill O'Reilly is still a big, crazy liar. In an interview with Reuters published today, O'Reilly broke out some of his oldest and craziest lies.

Responding to the question, "What's the angriest you've ever been on air?" O'Reilly renewed his attack on Jeremy Glick, son of 9/11 victim Jeremy H. Glick. "I was all set to do a sympathetic interview," the king of cable confrontation told the real news agency, "but the kid started saying the USA attacked the towers and killed his father." O'Reilly's foaming-at-the-mouth interview with Glick is, five years later, still one of his most famous.

The problem? Jeremy Glick said no such thing.

What he did point out, "[O]ur current president now inherited a legacy from his father and inherited a political legacy that's responsible for training militarily, economically, and situating geopolitically the parties involved in the alleged assassination and the murder of my father and countless of thousands of others."

When O'Reilly accused Glick of saying that the United States was a "terrorist nation," Glick responded that it wasn't "like that":

"What I'm saying is ... is that in -- six months before the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan, starting in the Carter administration and continuing and escalating while Bush's father was head of the CIA, we recruited a hundred thousand radical mujahedeens to combat a democratic government in Afghanistan, the Turaki government."

It is a widely-known a matter of record that United States spent $630 million arming and training Afghan mujahideen guerrillas in the time frame Glick referred to.

O'Reilly's other examples? Yet another misrepresentation of a guest's position on child protection laws and his screaming attack over the banking crisis on Barney Frank (D-MA,)--one of very few members of Congress who actually foresaw this crisis and opposed de-regulation back in 1999.
