Another Day, Another Lie: Bill O'Rielly Threatens to Quit if...

O'Reilly warned his audience on his Monday(9-19) show that, "if Barack Obama begins taxing me more than 50 percent, which is very possible, I don't know how much longer I'm going to do this."

Lawrence O'Donnell scoffed on his Tuesday show at Bill O'Reilly's threat to end his cable news program if his taxes are raised.

O'Donnell gave some background to set up his argument. He also begin with informing his audience that Congress, not Obama, holds the power of taxation, and that O'Reilly should have mentioned that body in his resignation threat. "O'Reilly has to lie about everything in that statement in order to make it credible to his audience, whose gullibility he has precisely calculated in the lies that he's loaded into that sentence," he said.

Olbermann, who acknowledged the contributions in a statement to POLITICO, made the maximum legal donations of $2,400 apiece to Conway and to Arizona Reps. Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords.
