On April 15th, the Syracuse Post-Standard published a satirical editorial which made a passing reference to the sexual harassment suit Bill O’Reilly settled in 2004. O’Reilly was not amused.

Soon after the editorial appeared, he added the Post-Standard to his list of “Media Operations That Traffic in Defamation.” O’Reilly escalated the fight (which he alone is waging) one step further on Monday’s edition of The Factor. During his Talking Points Memo, he put the pictures of Stephen Rogers and Mark Libbon up on the screen, called them “villians,” and guided viewers to their office contact information “should you want to speak with them.” Watch the clip HERE:

But SweetJesusIHateBillOReilly noticed an important detail: Stephen Rogers is deceased. (He passed away in November 2002 at the age of 90. That’s his picture above.) O’Reilly meant to blast his son and current publisher of the Syracuse Post-Standard, Stephen A. Rogers.

Have you no shame, Mr. O’Reilly?
