Democratic Rep. on O’Reilly’s Departure: ‘Little Bit of a Relief,’ He Was a ’Mouthpiece’ for Trump

Congresswoman Karen Bass told Chris Matthews tonight, in response to Bill O’Reilly‘s departure from Fox News, “Frankly, I mean, just my own bias––I think it’s a little bit of a relief because I think he was just a mouthpiece for the Trump administration.” She brought up that infamous Access Hollywood tape and the accusations against the president in talking about President Trump‘s recent sympathies for O’Reilly. O’Reilly, while receiving lots of criticism over the past year-plus for being too friendly to Trump, was occasionally critical of the president (recently suggesting he should stick to the facts), especially compared to other Fox News hosts.
