Bill O'Reilly Goes On A Humongous Rant About Flight 370

Bill O'Reilly showed on Monday that his previous rants about the media's coverage of the missing Flight 370 were just warmups for the real thing.

O'Reilly went on a tear of rapidly escalating fury as he accused everyone else (he, of course, had played things just right, in his view) of the most scandalous behavior when it came to the Malaysia Airlines jet.

"The media misled you," he fumed. "It allowed charlatans to put forth preposterous theories, and that denigrated the entire journalism industry."

For good measure, he said the coverage was "embarrassing, irresponsible and dishonest" and "cruel" when "239 peoples' lives are in peril."
