In addition to attacking Fox News correspondent Bill O'Reilly's claims that he reported in a "war zone" in the Falklands, former CBS News reporter Eric Engberg criticized O'Reilly's story that he carried his injured cameraman to safety, calling it "a very good paragraph for a book" during a HuffPost Live interview Monday.

Engberg, who worked alongside O'Reilly during the Falklands War, told host Marc Lamont Hill that while cameramen can be injured during "civil disturbances," O'Reilly alleging his cameraman was hurt is simply not plausible.

"If it had happened, all of our cameramen who were working that night would have been talking about it, and nobody was," Engberg said. "None of those cameramen remembers this incident happening. They don't remember anybody talking about it."
