Bill O'Reilly - Faking War Reporter Cred?

Has Bill O'Reilly pushed it too far? What do you think, Liveleakers?

Is he lying here??

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly has "recounted dramatic stories about his
own war reporting that don't withstand scrutiny," including claiming
that he covered the Falklands Islands warzone from which American
reporters were banned, according to a Mother Jones www.motherjones.com/politics/2015/02/bill-oreilly-brian-will.

Mother Jones goes on to note several instances of O'Reilly
claiming -- on television, in his syndicated column, and in hisbooks --
that he reported on the ground from active war zones, including the
Falklands.
O'Reilly was a reporter for CBS News at the time and did report from
Argentina during the conflict, but several figures at the network told
the magazine that no reporter for the network reported from the warzone
itself:

American reporters were not on the ground in this distant war zone.

"Nobody got to the war zone during the Falklands war," Susan Zirinsky, a
longtime CBS News producer who helped manage the network's coverage of
the war from Buenos Aires, tells Mother Jones.
She does not remember what O'Reilly did during his time in Argentina.
But she notes that the military junta kept US reporters from reaching the islands: "You weren't
allowed on by the Argentinians. No CBS person got there."

That's how Bob Schieffer, who was CBS News' lead correspondent
covering the Falklands war, recalls it: "Nobody from CBS got to the
Falklands. I came close. We'd been trying to get somebody down there. It
was impossible."
