Don Lemon says “bullshit”

When covering the Bill O’Reilly scandal, CNN Tonight anchor Don Lemon and media critic correspondent Brian Stelter were quoting the statement he gave to the press.

The Fox News primetime host called the story of him lying about seeing combat in the Falklands when he worked for CBS News “total bullshit,” and Don Lemon said as much on air tonight.

It was in primetime, so if you thought this would be overlooked, you would be, er, wrong…

I say: Yeah, Don regularly makes regrettable gaffes. This, however, wasn’t one of them. He was quoting O’Reilly, and it’s not like it was during daytime programming. Grow up and move on, folks.
