O'Reilly's Book on Lincoln


Quite a few people have emailed me begging me to critically review Bill O'Reilly's new book, Killing Lincoln, about the assassination. They do this not because they have read the book, which is a big, boring bag of nothingness, but because they've heard O'Reilly spout the neocon party line about "Father Abraham" on his television show and they smell a rat.

I've read the book, and it really is a big bunch of nothing. All it is is a narrative of the events leading up to the assassination. Over 100 books are already in print on the subject, and all O'Reilly and his coauthor do is cut and paste what others have written on the subject, but without including a single footnote!
