has attacked movie star Tim Robbins
for "misleading the public" about the Iraqi dead. The O'Reilly Factor
host did his homework after activist Robbins appeared on political talk show Real Time With Bill Maher
last month, and fired up the studio audience with what he claimed was the Iraq War death count.
The peace-loving actor told Maher that U.S. troops had killed 400,000 Iraqis since the war began, but O'Reilly, who famously attacked George Clooney
over the distribution of funds following his post-9/11 telethon, has taken Robbins to task.
Speaking on his show on Wednesday, the outspoken TV pundit insisted the Mystic River
star was more than 300,000 out on his claim, pointing out that most experts claim the death count is just over 77,000.
O'Reilly said, "So we know what Robbins is saying isn't true. We know it's anti-military... It's awful, off the chart awful. However, he does have a right to say what he says, even if he's misleading the public, even if he's saying things that aren't true."
