"I didn't see anything like that happen" says CBS Correspondent with O'Reilly during the Falklands

Today on CNN’s Reliable Sources hosted by Brian Stelter, Eric Engberg, a correspondent for CBS News for 26 years, shared his account of Argentina during the Falklands War.  As a former colleague of Bill O’Reilly, Engberg disputes the Fox Anchor’s description of Argentina as a ‘war zone’. A transcript and videos from the show are available below.


Engberg on O’Reilly’s description of the protests in Argentina: “I didn't see that happen.  I didn't see anything like that happen.  I don't know of any American foreign correspondent who had a weapon pointed at him.  But the important thing is, I didn't hear any gunfire.  Not only did I not hear any gunfire, as I say, I didn't hear any sirens.  I would - I came to Argentina from years of experience in Washington covering anti-war demonstrations against Vietnam War in Washington.”

Engberg on O’Reilly’s story about the CBS correspondents: What he just said was a fabrication, a lie.  There were five CBS correspondents, including him, assigned to the bureau.  They were under the direction of Larry Doyle, one of our very first field producers.  You marines out there will understand what I was saying.  He was a lurp in the marines in Vietnam before he went to CBS.  He's a very skilled operator in combat and dangerous situations.   He sent all five of the correspondents and all 10 or 12 of the camera crew members out into the street.  Nobody stayed in their hotel room because they were afraid.  We were all working and we saw what looked - what was a moderate size riot.  It was a couple thousand people attacking Casa Rosada, or the area around the Casa Rosada, by waving their arms, by clapping and chanting and singing songs.   Nobody attacked the soldiers.  Nobody attacked the police.  There was nobody lying on the ground when it was over that I saw.”

1st reporter to interview Janay Rice: "she learned a lot about herself"

Today on CNN’s Reliable Sources hosted by Brian Stelter, ESPN reporter Jemele Hill explains how she landed the first Janay Rice interview, why she agreed to certain conditions, and what Janay feels towards the outcome of the situation.

Text Highlight: 

“I think obviously she would not like to relive the situation.  However, I think that that's pretty obvious.  There were certain positives or a silver lining, if you will, that came out of this.  Among the many was the fact that the level and awareness of domestic violence is now, you know, maybe more than we have seen in this country in quite some time.  The other side of her, from a personal level, too, is that she felt like she learned a lot about herself, about her own strength, the strength of her family, the strength of her relationship with her husband.  So, even though it was horrible and traumatic, and there's going to be some probably long-term emotional damage from this entire episode, I think that she has enough perspective to understand that there was something larger and bigger at play than just the microcosm of her situation."
