Bill O’Reilly War Correspondent Won the Falklands War Drinking Daiquiris in a Hotel Bar In Buenos Aires

The Brian Williams 2015 Award for Journalistic Accuracy goes to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.

In April 2013, while discussing the Boston Marathon bombing, O'Reilly shared a heroic tale of his exploits in the Falklands war:
I was in a situation one time, in a war zone in Argentina, in the Falklands, where my photographer got run down and then hit his head and was bleeding from the ear on the concrete. And the army was chasing us. I had to make a decision. And I dragged him off, you know, but at the same time, I'm looking around and trying to do my job, but I figure I had to get this guy out of there because that was more important.
